3. From what you have learnt, can you tell whether enzymes are bigger or DNA is bigger in molecular size? How did you know?

Ans. Enzymes are bigger than DNA as they are proteins and proteins are macromolecules made of amino acids which are bigger than nucleotides. This can also be proved by gel electrophoresis, where denatured protein would not move but denatured DNA will move to a distance. Protein synthesis is regulated by small portions of DNA, called genes.

4.What would be the molar concentration of human DNA in a human cell? Consult your teacher.

Ans. The molar concentration of DNA in human cell is 2 mg/ml of cell extract.

5.Do eukaryotic cells have restriction endonucleases? Justify your answer.

Ans. No, eukaryotic cells do not have restriction endonuclease because DNA molecules of eukaryotes are heavily methylated. All the restriction endonucleases have been isolated from various strain of bacteria.
