What is the molar concentration of human DNA in a human cell?

"Human cells vary in size and volume. DNA is fixed in its size. That makes it kind of hard (like impossible) to state a concentration for DNA. Only a range can be given, and that information has little to no practical value and even less meaning." Cell size and volume have nothing to do with (MORE)

How much DNA do humans share with bananas?

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 (MORE)

What is the length of the Dna in a human sperm Cell?

Human Dna in Diploid -Somatic- Cells has the extended Length of 1.87 meters. Sperm and Egg Cells -Gametes- are Haploid Cells, with one half of The Genetic Complement, so the length is 0.935 meters [repeat - in length - jammed into a Space about three microns across].

How much DNA do humans share with a whale?

We will not know the answer to this until the genomes of whale species are sequenced. However, given that whales and humans are mammals, they would be expected to share many similarities.

What human cells can't have DNA extracted?

Red blood cells (otherwise known as erythrocytes). They contain no DNA or organelles. They lose them whilst maturing so as to be able to pack more haemoglobin into the cell and therefore be more efficient oxygen carriers.

Which cells in the human body does not contain DNA?

The only cells which lack DNA are the mature red bloodcells (erythrocytes). This is because they lack anucleus, which is where the DNA is found in other cells. Red bloodcells also lack mitochondria which themselves have DNA. Thereforethey not only lack nuclei DNA, but mitochondrial DNA as well. Red (MORE)

How much DNA are in human body cells?

There are about 50 million or 50 trillion in the adult body. But that isn't always true. It may not be true because cells die and form again. And it will be hard to count all the cells. Adult and child cells don't add up because and adult is big but a child is small so the child will have less sells (MORE)

Is DNA the same in every cell in the human body?

Yes, (except for slight random replication mutations that may happen due to exposure to radiation or harsh chemicals or invasion by viruses) apart form the egg and sperm cells which contain only half the DNA.

How much DNA can you pack in a cell?

If you pack too much DNA into a cell what would happen is this, it takes a lot of nucleotide bases to seta all the instructions an organism needs. the total set of instruction for a human being is over 3 billion nucleotide and would stretch almost 6 feet in length if you lined up all the bases!

How much DNA can be found in a human?

The human genome contains 3,079,860,316 base pairs of DNA, arranged in 23 pairs of chromosomes plus mitochondrial DNA. These form 32,185 distinct genes.

How much DNA do humans have?

Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes, and just over 3 billion base pairs. Each cell in the human body has about 2m of DNA (if it were stretched out). This means that an average human's DNA would be 2 * 10 11 km long! This length is 500,000 times the distance to the moon (4 * 10 5 km).

How can DNA of a human cell be cut and rearranged?

Enzymes are used to cut and paste DNA from one source to another. Enzymes called restriction endonucleases are capable of cutting DNA at specific sites called restriction sites. These sites are typically 4 - 6 nucleotides in length and occur several times in the genome of almost all organisms discov (MORE)

Where is DNA located in the human cell?

Two places: the DNA that gives instruction for the construction of the person is inside the nucleus and there is also mitochondrial DNA in the outside of the nucleus in the cytoplasm (the fluid filling of the cell).. Mitochondria are cell organelles in the cytoplasm of eukariotic cells that generat (MORE)

Can a retrovirus change DNA in human sperm cells?

The only way a retrovirus can change the DNA in a sperm cell is if it successfully implants its own DNA into the sperm DNA. Studies have been done with the HIV retrovirus to show that the virus can successfully get inside a sperm cell - but it has never been shown that the HIV virus successfully (MORE)

How many DNA in human cells?

A human cell has 46 chromosomes, 23 from each parent. Each chromosome is a separate stretch of DNA. Approximately 150 human cells yield 1 ng of DNA.

If you uncoiled the DNA in a human cell how long would it be?

Depending on what you want to know, I have two answers... 1. If you unwound and tied together the strands of DNA in one of your cells, it would stretch up to six feet, but they would only be 50 trillionths of an inch. 2. If you could unwrap the DNA you have in all the cells in your body, you (MORE)

How much DNA do humans share with a chimp?

It is commonly though to be 98%. However, recent studies have differing views. The BBC has published 95%, and Riken (a Japanese Lab) has published 85%. Please see the related links for the articles.

How much DNA does a cell hold?

A cell must hold a sufficient number of base pairs in its chromosomes to encode its entire genome. Bacteria may have 10^4 base pairs on the small end, while mammals may have several billion base pairs, plus extra-nuclear DNA inside mitochondria, and other *RNA in the cytoplasm. Under extra-ordinary (MORE)

Is DNA in any cell of the human body the same?

No - well, sort of. The DNA in every cell is almost the same, but a tiny snippet of each DNA strand codes the specific job the cell does, and that's what makes each cell's DNA slightly different. For example, the code for a skin cell is different from that of a liver cell. The differences in the " (MORE)

How do you draw a diagram of human cell DNA?

You draw the deoxyribose first (labelled S), connect it to a phosphate group (P) then a base connects to the deoxyribose. Between the bases, are hydrogen bonds. Or just draw two spirals and draw different colored bands to represent the 4 base

How much DNA do humans share with nuts?

All living creatures on earth share some amount of DNA, including mammals, reptiles, fish, plants, sea sponges, bacteria, and viruses. Humans share much more DNA with mammals than any other creature. And we share more DNA with lizards than we do fish. This is because mammals split off from the mamma (MORE)

How much DNA do crows share with Humans?

To my knowledge, the crow genome has not been sufficiently analyzed for a definite answer. The process of complete genome analysis is time consuming and expensive, so scientists have been selecting organisms that are highly used in research for genome analysis. That said, the genome of the chicke (MORE)

How much DNA does a human share with a potato?

Humans share very little with a potato. Chromosomes are acollection of DNA woven around protein. A chromosome may contain asmany as 100,000 to billions of nucleotides in one chain. Chimpanzeeand humans share a very SIMILAR DNA pattern, where as a potato anda human being don't. So although they both (MORE)

How many pieces of DNA are there in a human cells nucleus?

I don't completely understand what you mean by "pieces". Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes. That means they have 46 "pieces". 23 come from each parent. DNA is concentrated into little rods called chromosomes. There are two "pieces" on each chromosome.

Is there a cell in humans that don't have DNA?

No. Not all cells have a nucleus, which contains nuclear DNA; but all cells have mitochondria, which have their own DNA, called mitochondrial DNA, or mDNA. In humans, the cells that lack a nucleus and therefore nuclear DNA, are mature red blood cells, but they do have mitochondria and mitochondrial (MORE)
