Why do we mash the banana in banana DNA extraction lab?
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 solution.

Answer . If you have your own carpet shampooer then use that on the stain. Get as much of the mashed dried banana out as possible. Bananas have oil in them, so it's important to use a steam cleaner. Car washes will often have machines for shampooing the inside of your car.\n. \nMarcy
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.

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.
Answer: I don't know about mashed bananas, but for whole bananas.... peel the banana and roll it in milk until covered on all sides, wrap in plastic making sure there are no air pockets. It will not turn brown and should remain good for up to 3 months.
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.
Yes you can freeze it. Freezing virtually stops the aging process of food. It can be store twice as long as it stays fresh in the fridge. Try it out, it works.
No, not at all. Mashed bananas will have the same nutritional value as an normal banana. However, cooking it will reduce its nutrition. Always eat banana's when they are yellow, not green; as yellow bananas are alkaline and far more nutritious.
It is a type or kind of fruit that grows on a banana tree & it is yellow and shaped like the moon.
you have to get a lobster to bite the tree then suck the bark off then squeeze a banana over it
To mash up a ripe banana means to remove the peel, place the banana on a plate or cutting board, and use a table fork to squash, crush, or squish the banana until it is gooey. The purpose of mashing up a ripe banana is to either 1) use the banana in recipes, such as making banana bread, or 2) to fee…d the banana by small spoonfuls to an infant who does not eat solid food yet.

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.
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............
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.
YES. You can even freeze whole bananas (including skin) and peal them, mash them before baking banana bread. Skin turns brown when frozen, but inside is fine. Some like to eat frozen banana. I do.
You mash the fruit so you can break through the cell wall and the DNA can be extracted.
It helps break the nuclear membrane of the cell. Detergent containing the compound SDS ( sodiumdodecyl sulfate) is used to break down and emulsify the fat and proteins that make up a cell membrane.
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
It depends on what you mean by "go off." It is perfectly safe to freeze them (whole or mashed) for later use, they will not spoil. They will, however, be useless for much of anything except cooking uses (banana bread, banana pudding, etc.) because no matter what shape they were in when they went int…o the freezer, they will be a pulpy mess when they come out. The water freezing will lyse all the cells and demolish its ability to hold a shape. They are perfectly safe to eat or bake with, though. I usually keep three or four bananas in my freezer so I can make banana bread whenever I want rather than waiting for some bananas to get old enough. (MORE)
you get a banana with the peel still on you cut it in half the long way then you get a pot and put 4 cups of water in it then get it boiling boil the banana for 15-20 minutes then you take the banana out and the liquid left in is your banana extract
Every organism has DNA flat out and simple. With no DNA, we would have no bananas. DNA is the basic building blocks for everything.
Because the cold alcohol reduces the solubility (ability to dissolve) of DNA. It makes the DNA stay intact while the proteins and lipids dissolve or break down.
What you would want to do is dry the banana peel out much like a dried banana chip then you will want to use a press and put the banana peel under highpressuer I use a 3 ton jack press thats in my basement for this method ...how ever dried banana chips are much easyer to do than the actual peel
When the soap is added, the enzymes in the detergent will break down the lipids in the cell membrane like soap would do to a greasy pan. Also, in the meat tenderizer portion of the lab, the enzymes in the tenderizer will break down the proteins.
They came up because people wanted a "cell phone or phone" item that u can eat!
Although referred to as banana trees, they are not trees at all but a perennial herb.
Just put the Oregano leaves inside a plastic bag with your RIPEDBanana in it. Then seal it. Make sure it's properly sealed. Thenput the plastic bag with Oregano and Banana in you Refrigerator. PS: I hope I helped. Because I was also researching on about "whatplant can prolong Banana's shelf life" A…nd I found out that (MORE)
Yes....I've been told 3 medium bananas are equal to 1 cup (8 oz) mashed bananas. So, you need approximately 1 large (8 oz) or 2 small (4 oz) jars of baby food......Hope this helps!
just like humans we all have different DNA , so bananas dont have the same
Mashing bananas would be a physical change - the shape has changed, but it is still a banana.
There are 51 carbohydrates on one cup ( 7.9 oz or 225g) of mashed banana.
You go to the grocery store and buy it. It comes in a small bottle. You can't make it at home unless you have a chemisty lab in your kitchen.
Most grocery stores carry banana extract. Some shops that sell cake decorating/baking supplies also sell a variety of extracts. It is also available through online shops that sell the same.
So that scientists can make strawberry daiquiris, duh! :P If you're being serious, the strawberry gets made into a liquid and prepped to separate the DNA, alcohol is less dense than water so it helps capture the DNA.
Yes! Just like all living things, bananas have DNA. It is also possible to extract DNA from a banana. There are tons of online labs to do this.
no because there is not anough sictric acid to whiten the teeth. use bleech. trust me it works.
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
This is a physical change, because you are only changing the physical appearance, not the substance's chemical properties.
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).

any mashed fruit would work, be aware that it will change the dominant flavor if that is what the banana was intended for.
Yes indeed the Banana's flavor changes a great amount when I did it my mouth sensed that the Banana's flavor had changed and I could tell Because I am a banana Lover I will you tell you that much ! Anyways thank you for the question I always love to answer them! 2nd answer: When you mash or f…inely chop a food, you increase the surface area - you make the insides all exposed to the tounge. When eating whole or sliced banana, all the sugar you taste when is on the slices you made (by knife or tooth.) That's a lot less to taste then the 100x more surface (with sugars) you get to taste when it is mashed. You taste the otherwise hidden sugar. The only way for sugar to actually increase were if the starches break down to sugars when the banana is mashed - something your body was going to do to those starches anyway. -Yitz, Materials Engineer (MORE)
To physically break down the cell walls and membranes so that the DNA is accessible to reagents used in the extraction process.
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
