A typical skin cell has a diameter of about 0.0025 cm. The DNA in the nucleus of each cell codes for proteins. Proteins are involved in many aspects of how your body looks and how it works.

The DNA in the nucleus is part of a material called chromatin. Long strands of chromatin are usually bundled loosely within the nucleus.

A single strand of chromatin is made up of a long strand of DNA that is coiled around proteins.

Each strand of DNA contains 2 halves that are connected in the middle and twisted in a double helix.

When a cell is ready to divide, it has already copied its DNA. The copies stay attached as the chromatin is packaged into chromatids. The 2 identical form a chromosome.

Whats the function of chromatin?

Chromatin is what chromosomes are made of. It is made from the combination of DNA, histone, and other proteins and found inside the nuclear envelope of eukaryotic cells.


What is the function of chromotian?

Chromatin is the DNA and proteins which makes up the nucleus. Chromatin does not exactly "do" anything, but it (the DNA) encodes for many things such as proteins, polypeptides, etc.


What is the name of the family of DNA binding proteins that function to package DNA into chromatin?

histones are the proteins that compact and order DNA into subunits in the first step of the making of chromatin


The relationship between chromatin and chromosomes?

Chromatin is loose DNA in your nucleus during interphase and normal cell function, and chromosomes (condensed DNA) form before mitosis and meiosis.


What is the function of the chromatin?

Chromatin is a complex of DNA and protein found inside the nucleus of cells. The major proteins involved in chromatin are histone proteins. DNA is packaged into chromatin thereby decreasing the size of the molecule and allowing the cell to control the chromatin-packaged genes. Chromatin structure is also relevant to DNA replication and DNA repair. Easier Definition Mass of genetic material composed of DNA and proteins that condense to form chromosomes in eukaryote cell division. Chromatin is located in the cell's nucleus.


What is chromatin and its function?

Chromatin is a complex of nucleic acids and proteins, primarily histones, in the cell nucleus that stains readily with basic dyes and condenses to form chromosomes during cell division.


What is chromatins function?

The chromatin packages the DNA to a smaller sizes to fit in a cell for the DNA to be strengthen to go through meiosis and mitosis. The chromatin also controls the expression of the genes and the replication of DNA.


What is the function of chromatin in a plant cell?

Chromatin is the complex combination of DNA and protein that makes up chromosomes. The functions of chromatin are to package DNA into a small volume to fit in the cell, to strengthen the DNA to allow mitosis and meiosis, and to serve as a mechanism to control DNA expression and replication. Chromatin contains genetic material - instructions to direct cell functions.


What would happen if a cells nucleus lacked chromatin?
