NEET Botany Molecular Basis of Inheritance Questions Solved


Alfred Hershey and Martha Chase made a big contribution in proving DNA role as the hereditary molecule. The experiment is shown in the diagram. A and C are the presence or absence of radioactivity detected in cells B and D are the presence or absence of radioactivity detected in supernatants cells. Identify A, B, C and D:

(a) A - No Radioactivity (35S) detected in cells; B - Radioactivity (32P) detected in supernatant; C - Radioactivity (35S) detected in cells; D - No Radioactivity in supernatant
(b) A- Radioactivity (35S) detected in cells; B - No Radioactivity (35S) detected in supernatant; C - Radioactivity (32P) detected in cells; D - No Radioactivity in supernatant
(c) A - No Radioactivity (35S) detected in cells; B - Radioactivity (35S) detected in supernatant; C - Radioactivity (32P) detected in cells; D - No Radioactivity in supernatant
(d) A - No Radioactivity (35S) detected in cells; B - Radioactivity (35S) detected in supernatant; C - No Radioactivity (32P) detected in cells; D - Radioactivity in supernatant
