These long DNA molecules are packed in a nucleus that measures about 10μm in diameter. In order to fit the complete DNA into such a small volume, DNA is folded and compacted by proteins in a structure called chromatin. During mitosis, is even further compacted into condensed chromosomes (Kornberg, 1974). All the information needed for the… CONTINUE READING
