Vitamins B 1 , B 2 , B 3 , B 6 , B 9 & C Bananas are a good source of potassium as well, vitamin K, you should eat one every day for good cardiac health.
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.

Apparently not. Do a google search on "gluten free banana bread" and you'll find dozens of hits, which uses 3-4 bananas in the recipe.
Bananas contain ascorbic acid but not citric acid. Citric acid isfound in citrus fruits, such as oranges, lemons, limes,grapefruits, etc. See link below for more information. Better Answer: Yes. In fact, bananas contain much more citric acid than ascorbicacid (Vitamin C). A ripe banana contains 31…9 mg of citric acid --that's 29 times the amount of the ascorbic acid in the banana! Butthe predominant organic acid in a banana is malic acid (425 mg). For comparison, an orange has 4 times as much citric acid as abanana, but only half the malic acid. ( Full Answer )
yes in fact they do.. it has enough potassium to make 14 radioactive decays every second.
Answer DNA forms the chromosomes which are contained in the nucleus. The DNA molecule is made up of a double helix forming one chromatid of the chromosome.
DNA is made up of molecules called nucleotides. Each nucleotidecontains a phosphate group, a sugar group and a nitrogen base. Thefour types of nitrogen bases are adenine (A), thymine (T), guanine(G) and cytosine (C). The order of these bases is what determinesDNA's instructions, or genetic code.
They are fattening in the way that they have a very high sugar content which is in the form of carbohydrates. Like all carbohydrates, if the energy isn't used up it will be stored in the body as fat. It's best to eat bananas in the first half of the day so that you're more likely to use up the calor…ies. ( Full Answer )
Banana.com says that an average banana (9 inches in length) has 602 mg of potassium.
Since DNA is present in the nucleus of all cells, it is actually present in all organs.
Do bananas contain vitamins? . Bananas are rich in potassium, which is needed for proper use of muscles including the heart muscle. Too low--or too high--of body potassium can cause irregular heartbeats and even death. Both too high and too low can cause extreme and painful muscle contractions.. … Inverse Balance . The body often uses "inverse balances" of certain chemicals as a feedback mechanism. When one chemical is too high, an inverse chemical will drop (just like with many hormones the body produces).. Potassium (K+) and Sodium (NA) create an inverse relationship to each other. When one is high, the other lowers. When heart patients take blood pressure or fluid reducing medicines, it can drop Potassium levels to dangerous lows leading to heart stoppage and death. Doctors often give Potassium-sparing medications if a person has too much edema (swelling, usually in the ankles and feet).. Bananas are good food at all ages. Since bananas help our muscles (and the body has many big and small muscle groups), all ages benefit from eating bananas.. Posted by: Lifes ( Full Answer )
A medium sized banana contains about 1 gram of protein. It is, however, rich in potassium
Nope. Uranium is a very widespread element in nature. All materials of construction, all foods, all waters and soils, etc. contain small amounts of uranium. Uranium concentration in bananas is so small that it is not of practical importance. Even human body contain a small quantity of uranium.
Nope. But they do contain 10% carbohydrates, which, if the energy is not used soon enough, are stored in the body as fat.
Depending on the size of the banana, it contains between 0.3 mg and 0.5 mg of iron, so an average banana would contain about 0.4 mg of iron. It doesn't sound like a lot, but the RDA of iron for a toddler (for whom bananas are a perfect I-can-feed-myself food) is 10 mg per day, so one banana is 4-5% …of the RDA for toddlers.. Other nutritional facts about bananas (from http://www.healthalternatives2000.com/fruit-nutrition-chart.html) are:. One medium banana contains 1.29 grams of protein and 3.1 grams of dietary fiber.. Potassium - 422 mg Phosphorus - 26 mg Magnesium - 32 mg Calcium - 6 mg Sodium - 1 mg Iron - 0.31 mg Selenium 1.2 mcg Manganese - 0.319 mg Copper - 0.092 mg Zinc - 0.18 mg Also contains small amounts of other minerals.. Vitamin A - 76 IU Vitamin B1 (thiamine) - 0.037 mg Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) - 0.086 mg Niacin - 0.785 mg Folate - 24 mcg Pantothenic Acid - 0.394 mg Vitamin B6 - 0.433 mg Vitamin C - 10.3 mg Vitamin E - 0.12 mg Vitamin K - 0.6 mcg Contains some other vitamins in small amounts.

Nuclear DNA is found in the nucleus of cells; mitochondrial DNA is found inside mitochondria. Both the nucleus and mitochondria are compartments inside eukaryotic cells.
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
No, it shouldn't but if in the factory where it is boxed there might be salt accidently put on it.
Bananas contain only a small amount of calcium (1% of the RDA for 100 grams).

DNA is found in all life on earth. It is the basis of cellular reproduction.
I've heard that a banana is one of the fattest fruits around, but it's still pretty healthy. Anyway, a regular banana contains only 1% fat.
Look in the related link bleow to see the compositin of a Bananna. ------------------------ Bananas are the staple diet of many people in the world. The green less ripe bananas contain more starch and taste starchy. The yellow bananas taste less starchy due to high levels of sugar concentration…s. It is one of the highest sources of potassium (about 358 mg). It also contains vitamin A, calcium, carbohydrates, a little amount of fats and proteins, zinc, sugars and phosphorous. ( Full Answer )
A ripe banana had more time to go through mitosis rather than an unripe banana had a lower time
every cell contains a nucleus and nucleus contains structures known as chromosomes these chromosomes contain the DNA in short the nucleus contains the DNA
In eukaryotic cells, the DNA is contained in the cell's nucleus as chromatin, but in prokaryotic cells, which lack a nucleus, the DNA simply floats as chromatin in the cytoplasm.
No, a cell wall is found in a plant cell and it does not contain dexoxyribonucleic acid
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 )
Some types of bananas have glucose, some do not. It varies.however, a banana is common for its sucrose, which is not areducing sugar.
Tears may contain loose cells (which contain DNA), but it is mostly just water and dissolved salts.
It is probaly an RNA but most likely DNA but i have no f****** clue so figure it out yourself you dumbbutt and get off wikkianswer
No. DNA only consists of: 1. deoxyribose sugar groups 2. nucleotides (either Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine, or Thymine) 3. phosphate backbone. Ribosomes only associate with RNA, in the process of translation. Fun fact: Ribosomes have subunits consisting of rRNA linked to proteins. R…NA (single-stranded) is made of: 1. ribose sugar groups 2. nucleotides (either Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine, or Uracil) 3. phosphate backbone. ( Full Answer )
just like humans we all have different DNA , so bananas dont have the same
DNA does not contain any chromosomes. Chromosomes contain DNA, and in humans, there are 46 chromosomes in each cell.
Bananas are a starchy fruit and are loaded with potassium. While they are high in nutritional qualities, they are also high in carbohydrates. . 27 carbohydrates in a medium banana (7 to 8 inches long) . 31 carbohydrates in a large banana (8 to 9 inches long) For those who eat the skin even …more carbohydrates are consumed.

No it does not. However, if there was blood, saliva, or sweat on the finger that made the print, it would theoretically be possible to collect the material and extract dna from it.
Yes, banana contain starch. It comes from banana tree. The banana tree is a plant.
Chromosomes. The nucleus of a eukaryotic Cell contains chromosomes yet is not made from them.
Prions are an infectious particle made of protein. They do not contain DNA or RNA.
Yes, but mitichondrial DNA is passed directly from the mother, because sperm contain very few organelles to make them more streamlined and likelier to reach the egg, so the mitchondria only resides in the cytoplasm of the egg, making everyone's mitochondrial DNA an exact copy of their mothers. Mitoc…hondrial DNA typical resides longer in bones, making it easier to trace through history. ( Full Answer )
Pneumonia is inflammation of the lung disease. It can be caused by bacteria or viruses. Most of the time, it is bacterial (which contain DNA). Viruses can be RNA or DNA-based.
If you mean which cell doesn't contain DNA, mature red blood cells don't. They expel their nucleus once they mature, kicking out all the DNA it contains.
there is natural Potasium in Banana & if yoy're feeling a little pooped, eat one for a quick "pick-me-up".
Yes a small amount (0.16mg per 100g of bannana) of Zinc is found in Banannas. For the composition of a bannana look in the related link below.
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.
Serum is generally free from blood cellular components but when collecting serum sometimes few cells will be pipetted with the serum & that is the only source of DNA in the serum.
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).

All of the mitochondria in a person's cells originally came from the person's mother in the original egg cell. Mitochondria have their own DNA which they replicate before reproducing. The father's sperm cell that fertilized the egg does not contribute any mitochondria to the zygote formed from ferti…lization. Therefore, mitochondrial DNA comes only from a person's mother.

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
Like most biological material, bananas are made mostly of carbon,hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen. They are best known for containingpotassium, even though it makes up only about 0.3% of a banana'smass.
