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.

Organisms normally have equal amounts of the bases adenine and thymine (ratio of A:T = 1) and equal amounts of the bases cytosine and guanine (ratio C:G = 1).. The reason is that there is specific base pairing ie adenine can only pair with thymine and cytosine can only pair with guanine. So in a …DNA double helix, every adenine in one strand must be paired with a thymine in the other strand. Similarly, every cytosine in one strand must be paired with a guanine in the other strand.. Each base pair consists of a purine and a pyrimidine. Adenine and guanine are purines and thymine and cytosine are pyrimidines.. This relationship between purines and pyrimidines was discovered by Erwin Chargaff in the 1950's..

Although banana cake and banana bread have similar ingredients, they are very different in the way they are made and how the final product comes out. Banana cake is lighter in texture and is usually leavened with baking soda and buttermilk. Banana Bread is heavier and moister with baking powder and …soda to help it rise. ( Full Answer )
Yes , you do.. . The reason is that all your somatic (body) cells are descended from just one cell: the zygote (fertilized egg). Because your body cells have all been formed by mitosis, they are genetically identical.. Exceptions: . Gametes (ova, or unfertilized eggs, and sperms) are formed by a …different kind of division, meiosis. They have only one set of chromosomes, whereas your body cells have two sets.. Over a human lifetime, occasional mutations may occur randomly in the genome and randomly in the body. ( Full Answer )
What causes a banana's peel to turn brown or black and what causes the fruit to ripen are two different things. A banana's peel turns brown due to an enzyme ( polyphenyl oxidase ), which is naturally found in the banana. The enzyme polymerises phenols in the banana skin into polyphenols. Polyphenols… are similar to melanin, the pigment responsible for the color in our skin. This is what blackens the skin of the bananas. The enzyme that makes bananas sweet is called amylase . Amylase breaks down the starch in the banana fruit. When the starch is broken into its smaller sugar components, called glucose, the banana tastes sweet. The enzyme that softens the banana is called pectinase. Pectinase breaks down the cell walls in the banana fruit so that it is less firm. ( Full Answer )
One strand of DNA is kept during the copy of DNA, while also a newone is added for a new strand, allowing it to become a double helixagain.
"Yes and No, humans share 99.9% of the same genetic material. The .1% is what makes everyone different from one another!" That .1% isn't actually a difference, it's simply the varying ratio between dormant/active DNA. In other words, everyone has the gene that makes ones skin naturally white or b…lack. ( Full Answer )
Mostly its the same factor that goes into it or other fruits ripping, and that is bacteria. The same bacteria that makes food mold, ripens and eventually decomposes fruit. This bacteria thrives in warm and sunny climates.
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
First of all DNA is not a cell. Second of all if DNA was all the same then we would also be the same in thought, apearance, and function. The only time DNA is the same is when it makes up a multicelled organism (or if a Organism is cloned or for a spieces of unicelluar organisms).. This was explain…ed by a seven year old, ( Full Answer )
There are more than 50 different species of banana. Most are the wild banana and have large seeds. These are not the banana most people think of when thinking of the banana, which has domesticated varieties. The two varieties generally found in the US and sold as bananas are the Dwarf Cavendish and …teh Grand Nain. ( Full Answer )
Structurally, the DNA is all cells is the same. The difference lies in the sequence and length of the genome
DNA molecules are negatively charged. When places in an electric field, like in an gel during the process of electrophoresis, they all move toward the positive electrode.
No...although in the same family and very close, the banana pepper is a sweeter variety while the pepperoncini will characteistically have a little bit more of a spiciness to it.
The DNA of all living organisms is composed of the same fournucleotides. Very rarely however, other nucleotides may be found inDNA in addition to the common four.
DNA is found in all life on earth. It is the basis of cellular reproduction.
Short Answer: Not quite. This is a very general question so I'll answer all the possible questions you are asking. DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic acid because that's what it is made out of. DNA is different in to every individual organism. Your DNA, among other things, is what gives you your o…wn personal identity, separate to every other individual. But different species, say, humans have very similar DNA, more similar than comparing them to dogs, another mammal, or plants and fungi. So all poison ivy has similar DNA but each individual plant, because there is variation, has slightly different DNA. ( Full Answer )
The DNA of all living organisms is composed of the same 4nucleotides. These 4 nucleotides make up all DNA.
A ripe banana had more time to go through mitosis rather than an unripe banana had a lower time
Bananas can only be grown in countries with the right conditions. However they are sometimes grown in greenhouses in temperate climates.
In theory, yes. All cells of an organism came from one cell (the fertilized egg in the womb), so as long as there were no errors in replication then every cell will have identical DNA. That being said, different cells utilize different portions of that DNA; this is how we have specialized tissue i.e…. brain, heart muscle, liver cells, etc. So while the DNA information is identical, the liver cell will transcribe and translate different parts of the DNA than a brain cell would. ( Full Answer )
Yes they do because they are created from the same egg when it splits so they will have the same DNA because they are identical but on the other side regular twins don't have the same DNA because they are from diffrent egg and sperm
single band represent the moleuclar weight of the particular DNA running on the gel. yes it means, all copies of DNA fragments are the same, and it is pointed in that particular band.

Chemically DNA from any species is the same. But the things is the sequence of DNA such as AATTTCGAATG for example will not be the same. In fact, the sequence can not be the same from person to person. That is the unique nature of DNA.
Every organism has DNA flat out and simple. With no DNA, we would have no bananas. DNA is the basic building blocks for everything.
Yes, every banana tree makes bananas. After fruiting the tree will not make bananas and has to be cut down.
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. ( Full Answer )
AFAIK, yes, except the sex cells (sperm & egg) that are stored inside the body.
Great question! This question is still under scientific debate. You are right that they all contain the same DNA. The answer is complicated, but the short version is that not every gene that is encoded by the DNA is expressed in every cell. Each specialized type of cell also expresses a tissue-sp…ecific set of genes, which are unique to that particular tissue or organ. Kidney cells express a set of kidney-specific genes, while bone cells express a set of bone-specific genes. The cells become specialized for a particular function during the development of the organism. We think of different organs and characteristics as traits or features but as far as cells are concerned all of these tissues etc have a function (eg. your hair forms because thousands of years ago we were covered in fur for warmth and protection).

Some people say that you should never eat bananas in the evening-well that is ridiculous!!!You can eat bananas in the evenings,I suggest having them with honey for a delicious midnight snack.
Because its culture is a asexual reproduction so it only ha one parent that means its DNA is the same
DNA is like a universal language, one that uses the same system and alphabet. All DNA in all organisms is a double helix of deoxyribose nucleic acid made up of adenine, guanine, cytocine and thymine (I think it's thymine at least). The differences are in the codes. The universal language is still un…iversal, but it's not saying the same thing for everyone. It's helpful to compare DNA to a cookbook. Page 7 of one book codes for apple pie, while page 7 of a different book codes for soup. They're in the same language, but they say different things. ( Full Answer )
Astronaut bananas are just regular bananas that have been sliced and freeze dried to preserve them.
Such an event is highly impossible because siblings receive the same set of genes from their parents. The slight differences in their DNA is due to allelic differences and due to recombinational events. However, no such event can cause a total mismatch of the DNA of two siblings from the same parent…s. ( Full Answer )
Yes, there are 4 main nucleobases (or nucleotides): Guanine Adenine Thymene and Cytosine They join in sequence in what is know as specific base pairing - apart from mutations. See related link
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.
That all depends on the meaning of organic. If by organic you mean living, then yes. If by organic you mean the special way of growing and farming that is pesticide free, then no.
When harvesting bananas the bunch hangs from a thick stem which is then severed from the plant. The bananas are mature but still green. The tree is then cut down at the base. In it's place 3 more plants will grow. It takes about 9 months for the new plant to produce a bunch of bananas.
Assuming you mean sterile as in seedless (unable to reproduce), the majority of the ones you find in the store are. The plants tend to have 50% more chromosomes than normal (triploid). That makes them free of seeds and thus sterile. The black specks inside are not seeds. The way they propagate these… are with clippings. So the majority of the bananas you eat of a specific cultivar have the same DNA. ( Full Answer )
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).

dna are same but the genes are of different types which causes some variations and human being are made from fusion of sperm and ova so both charecters get mixed and new one is formed
Every cell within an organism contains the same DNA. In higher organism, this DNA is selectively expressed. Genes are turned on and off depending on the cell.
No, due to replication process in the dividing somatic cells the ammount of DNA is more than the non-dividing somatic cells.
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
A banana hammock is similar to a Speedo but a banana hammock has ag-string back.
No. This is because of the extreme diversity in all life and as should be expected, humans have a lot more DNA (# of base pairs, codons) than say E.coli. Even members of the same species have slight variances in this number due to their separate lines of lineages and the heritable mutations associat…ed. Ideally, every cell in a single multicellular organism, save for gametes, should have the same amount of DNA, however, this is not definitive due to point mutations in each individual cell, so even on this level there will be variances. However, complexity of an organism does not correlate with more DNA every time. Take for instance Daphnia pulex, a tiny aquatic crustacean, has many more genes than even Humans. in other words, it all really depends on our evolutionary trajectory. ( Full Answer )
Avocados and Bananas do not have the same nutritional content.Avocados are a healthier choice because they double or triple thenutritional content Bananas have.
