Deoxyribonucleic Acid DNA is a nucleic acid polymer consisting oftwo long backbones, with nitrogenous bases connecting them (imaginea ladder). This structure is then twisted into a double helix. The two back bones are composed of a pentose sugar (namelydeoxyribose) with the nitrogenous bases facing… inwards andconnected to each other via hydrogen bonding. The sugars are inturn connected together by phosphate groups with phosphodiesterbonds. The function of DNA is long-term information storage. A briefsynopsis is that DNA is used as a template to make mRNA(transcription) which directs the assembly of a protein in aribosome (translation). DNA must be replicated during cell reproduction, as each daughtercell resulting in mitosis will require a full genome. DNAreplication is a nearly exact process, with error rates less thanone-in-a-billion. This is due to the nitrogenous bases, which iswhere the information is stored. Four bases exist in DNA: adenine,guanine, cytosine and thymine (A,T,C and G). Remember the two legsof a ladder running anti-parallel to each other, with bases facinginwards. Each base is connected to the one across from it viarelatively weak hydrogen bonding. This bonding however, allows theDNA to be replicated with remarkable exactness as A can only bondwith T and C can only bond with G. As such, when DNA Polymeraseenzymes polymerize a new strand of DNA, they "know" which order toput the bases in, thus conserving information. This is known as the"semi-conservative" model of DNA Replication. Definition: The official definition of the word DNA is "deoxyribonucleic acid,a self-replicating material present in nearly all living organismsas the main constituent of chromosomes. It is the carrier ofgenetic information." (MORE)
Bananas come from many warm parts of the world. West Indies, Australia, South America and others. Bananas are a berry, since they grow in a cluster. They belong to the musaceae family of the plantea kingdom. Bananas are very high in vitamin B6, vitamin C, and potassium.
It's probably a fairly small proportion. According to evolutionarybiologist Robert May, President of Britain's Royal Society, "Weshare half our genes with the banana" (2001), but genes only makeup 2% of human DNA - the answer depends on what proportion of theremaining 98% is the same. Humans have 23… pairs of chromosomes andbananas 11 pairs - even if the 11 banana chromosomes were identicalto human ones (they're not) it would still mean that less than halfof human DNA would be found in a banana.

DNA are little alien's (DN Aliens). -Actually they are what is carried in the chromosome from man to women, and they contain domestic traits.
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a nucleic acid that carries the genetic information needed to construct cells. It is also capable of self-replication and synthesizing ribonucleic acid (RNA).
Answer . As I understand it DNA is the basic building block of all organic life and allows the life processes of all creatures to function on a cellular and multi-cellular level. Therefore, All life which is based on a cellular structure must have DNA. This must include the entire vegetable… and animal kingdom. (MORE)
DNA holds information about our characteristics like hair colour, eye colour etc that we inherited from our parents and it is passed on to our children
Bananas only have one major use. - Stuffing Daniel Lambs jeans. you can charge a psp and an ipod(probably other electronics to) with a banana. ther is a video on youtube about it.
Bananas contain three natural sugars-sucrose, fructose and glucose. They consist of 75.7% water, 22.2% carbohydrate, 1.1% protein, .2% fat, and .8% "other". Bananas are also a source of fiber, potassium, and other nutrients.
A-DNA is a conformation of DNA that differs from the common one (B-DNA) by: - a wider right-handed spiral - a shallow, wide minor groove - a narrower, deeper major groove. The A form occurs under non-physiological conditions in partially dehydrated samples of DNA, while in the cell it may b…e produced in hybrid pairings of DNA and RNA strands (MORE)
DNA is what makes you you it is a nucleic acid thatcontains genetic instructions used in the development andfunctioning of all living organisms and some viruses.
It is a type or kind of fruit that grows on a banana tree & it is yellow and shaped like the moon.
It is like a big book containing all the information of a being, you find it in every cell's nucleus. Specialized cell agents enter the nucleus, copy the pages then translate them outside the nucleus, resulting into proteins, these proteins do most of cell's work. Every cell of a being has the sa…me information, but depending on wich pages they read they become blood cells, liver cells, or brain cells for example. (MORE)
It is the genetic matirial of all living organisms. It makes you look and act similar yet not exactly the same as yourparents or siblings.
DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) is contained within the nucleus of eukaryotic cells and in the cytoplasm of prokaryotic cells. It contains the genetic instructions used for creating life and determining traits. Every single living organism on this planet including some viruses have DNA. It is a simple f…our letter code but it determines everything about you: your species, gender, eye colour, hair colour, hair type, skin colour, etc. etc. (MORE)
DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) is the genetic instructions contained within the nucleus of your cells. It is the 'blue prints' to create you. It determines your species, gender, eye colour, hair colour, hair type, skin colour, size, height, etc. Without DNA you could not exist.
Potassium is the major benificent material provided by internal consumption of the humble banana. However, it provides 70% (in varying amounts) of nutrients (vitamins AND minerals) required by the human body on a daily basis. See the link:
A banana would. In an experiment I completed just a few days ago. More than a whole gram of DNA was able to be extracted from the Banana compared to a strawberry
They are native to the tropical region of Southeast Asia. Today they are cultivated throughout the tropics.
make the human traits it is the code to your DNA you could make a nother replica of your self
as you might know bananas help you be healthy. when they are in your stomach, they tell the little peoples in there to turn him into a little person too, so then they do, and they turn him into a person because he begs them to so he can go through the digestive system. TO BE CONTINUED............
DNA isn't a who , but it is a what . The answer to this question will be found under "DNA" if you type it into the Ask bar above. [(face palm)]
any of your local grocery markets but i prefer wal-mart cause they has fresh bananas almost every day
An elongated curved fruit, which grows in bunches, and has a sweet creamy flesh and a smooth yellow skin.
DNA is found in all life on earth. It is the basis of cellular reproduction.
DNA can determine if a person will have a heat attack to if you will be good at snowboarding
You receive it from your parents. Both the DNA from your parents' sex cells make up yours. Think of yourself as half of two people: your mother and your father. This is because each sex cell has half of the chromosomes to make an entire organism.
bananas have acid , balls , nipples , yellow stringy stuff ( or other wise known as atachable and detachable condoms) please report back if you find our answer correct
from a tree ( hand or comb ) or from your local super market In a shop lol
A ripe banana had more time to go through mitosis rather than an unripe banana had a lower time
Its a combination of your mom's and you dad's. Identical twins have the same dna
DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) is in all known living organisms and some viruses. It is contained within the nucleus of animal and plant cells.
DNA is a macromolecule made of many nucleotide subunits; these subunits are made of a nitrogen-containing base, a ribose sugar, and a phosphate group . DNA is also associated with many different types of proteins that help keep It maintained and organized within the cell. The bases are either …single rings called pyrimidines ( Thymine and Cytosine ) or double-ringed purines ( Adenine and Guanine ). The bases (represented as T, C, A or G) are bonded to a deoxyribose sugar , this sugar is also bonded to phosphate groups. The deoxyribose sugars and the phosphate groups alternate to form the backbone of one DNA strand. Two strands are arranged into a double helix, each strand is anti-parallel to the other (they point in opposite directions like lanes in a two way street). DNA is organized and coiled within the cell by histones and other proteins. *DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid (MORE)
Every organism has DNA flat out and simple. With no DNA, we would have no bananas. DNA is the basic building blocks for everything.
DNA can let us track people. Just by a sample of it we know their name, birth, and sperm count.
When extracting DNA from a banana, the DNA must release from the cell by breaking apart or lysing the cellular and nuclear membranes. Lysing in this case is the act of breaking open the cell membranes to expose the contents. This is performed by mashing the banana and adding a detergent/salt solutio…n. (MORE)
Half of it came from your mother - the other half came from your father.
Your DNA is inherited from your parents. You receive one set of chromosomes from each parent. Therefore exactly half of your DNA comes from each parent.
just like humans we all have different DNA , so bananas dont have the same
DNA is the fundamental molecule for life, it is the "code" for "you". In the same way that 0's and 1's make up the code of a computer at its most fundamental point, DNA codes for living functions. DNA is turned into RNA which makes Amino Acids, which build proteins.... and basically everything is …proteins... your blood, your organs. The way you look is determined by DNA as well, it determines if you will grow an arm or a wing, or if you will have blonde hair or brown....so on and so forth (MORE)
Are you asking What can not be done with DNA? Well, for example: You can't make a protein/Amino acids with DNA, this function called translation is carried out by RNA...
Our DNA is inherited from our parents half from your mother and half from your father, you may resemble your parents but your never alike.
Prions They are misshaped proteins that have the ability to misshape other proteins to look like it (in that way it propagates itself) you may have heard of mad cow disease
use to masturbate lick eat taste spit on squeeze throw tickle? dress up talk to (if your lonely) eat with kiss play video games with it make them kiss other bananas
assuming you mean the earliest developmental stages of life. Your dna is the result of the genetic material from your mother's egg and your father's sperm combining and copying itself as you gain more and more cells.
Maybe because bananas are annual kind of plant, which means they can survive in all year round in both rainy season and summer season and it's easy to produce unlike to the other plant to our surroundings. On the other hand, bananas have a juicy stem or body, it has a complete structures of genetic …information and besides banana can reproduce itself, without mating from the other plant nor from the other species of banana.(asexual reproduction). (MORE)
The same exact base pairs; A, T, G and C, though they are arranged quite a bit differently to produce banana proteins.
the benefit to extract DNA from banana IS TO PRODUCE NEW AND MORERAPID POPULATION OF FRUITS
DNA or Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid is a double stranded compound made up of a deoxyribose (sugar-phosphate) backbone with nucleotide bases bonded together with hydrogen bonds.
DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic acid. DNA are molecules that carrygenetic information in living organisms to include humans andanimals.
