Lesson: DNA in Eukaryotes Biology
In this lesson, we will learn how to describe the structure of chromosomes in eukaryotic cells and explain the role of histones and nucleosomes in forming chromosomes.
DNA is wrapped around proteins and coiled into loops to form chromatin. At what point will chromatin condense to form visible chromosomes?
In the initial stages of chromosome formation, double-stranded DNA wraps around specialized proteins. What are these proteins called?
In the process of chromosome development, nucleosomes are formed. Which of the following best describes how nucleosomes are formed?
