B. The timing of replication is related to the chromatin structure. , in a female mammalian cell, the inactive X chromosome called the Barr body is packaged as heterochromatin and is replicated late in S phase).

DNA polymerases absolutely require the 3Ј-OH end of a based paired primer strand as a substrate for strand extension.

The genetic risk associated with an autosomal recessive disorder is as follows: 1. Example 1. Normal heterozygous mother and normal heterozygous father: In autosomal recessive disorders, both parents are carriers of a single copy of the responsible gene. ” All possible combinations of alleles from the parents are shown in a Punnett square below. qxd 06/02/2009 03:34 PM Page 29 Aptara Chapter 4 Mendelian Inheritance 29 Conclusion: There is a 25% chance (1 out of 4 children) of having a child with the autosomal recessive disorder (rr), a 50% chance (2 out of 4 children) of having a normal child that will be a heterozygous carrier (Rr), and a 25% chance (1 out of 4 children) of having a normal child that will not be a carrier (RR).

Nucleosomes are pulled together by histone H1 to form a 30 nm diameter fiber. The 30 nm fiber exists either as extended chromatin or as secondary loops within a condensed metaphase chromosome. (B) Electron micrograph of DNA isolated and subjected to treatments that unfold DNA to a nucleosome. The “beads on a string” appearance is the basic unit of chromatin packaging called a nucleosome. The globular structure (“bead”) (arrow 1) is a histone octamer. The linear structure (“string”) (arrow 2) is DNA.
