What are the chromosomes made of?
chromosomes are tiny "x" looking structures in a cell that package chromatids which are joined by Histones. Inside this Chromatids are the genetic sequences know as deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). All of this is located in the nucleus of the cell.
Yes, chromosomes are made of DNA and protein molecules called histones. Edit from another user: False, they're made of material called chromatin. Edit from user #3: Chromosomes and chromatin are actually the same thing, except in different form. Both chromosomes and chromatin are made up of a strand of DNA wrapped around histone protein, except chromatin is in a long and stringy form while chromosomes are a compacted and twisted version of chromatin.
No, Chromosomes are not made up of proteins, they are made up of supercoiled DNA, which is a combination of two phosphate sugar back bones, conected by bases. Chromosomes are made of proteins. DNA is tightly coiled around histones which are proteins. Here check this website out: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Are_chromosomes_made_of_molecules
Chromosomes are minute thread like structure found in the nucleus of the cell. In prorarytes only one chromosome occours but in eukaryotes chromosomes occours in pairs. there are 23 pairs of chromosomes in human beings. the chromosomes occouring in pairs are called diploid. Chromosomes are made up of two chromatids bound by the centromere at the centre. DNA is a macromolecule made up of several types of nucleotides. nucleotide is made up of three components…
