(a) The diagram represents the structure of nucleosome.
(b) 'a' is histone octamer, 'b' is DNA,
'c' is H1 histone, 'd' is one of histone molecules
(c) In a bacterial cell, DNA molecule-negatively charged is held with some proteins that have positive charge in the region of nucleoid.
The DNA in nucleoid is organised in large loops held by proteins.
