Explain the significant role of the genus Nucleopolyhedrovirus in an ecological sensitive area.
How does a restriction nuclease function? Explain.
Each restriction endonuclease functions by ‘inspecting’ the length of a DNA sequence. Once it finds its specific recognition sequence, it binds to the DNA and cuts each of the two strands of the double helix at specific points in their sugar -phosphate backbones. Each restriction endonuclease recognizes a specific palindromic nucleotide sequences in the DNA.
