Chapter 14 - DNA: The Genetic Material - Figure 14.22 - Inquiry Questions: 2


Yes, eukaryotes need longer times for DNA replication, must begin replication at many sites rather than on circular chromosome, and they must lengthen the ends of their linear chromosomes, their telomeres, or cell division would end once all of the telomeres had been lost to the shortening that happens with each replication.

Work Step by Step

Again, in the previous question, use a list of differences (size, multiple linear chromosomes, telomeres), and then describe the extra steps needed by eukaryotic cells to solve each of these added difficulties.
