In eukaryotes which of the following is removed from initially transcribed RNA before it is transported to the cytoplasm for translation ?

(1) Intron

(2) 3' Poly A tail

(3) Ribosome binding site

(4) 5' cap

The process of splicing in eukaryotes :

(1) is reminiscent of antiquity 

(2) represents dominance of RNA world

(3) is an indicator of the complexity of human genome

(4) is a legacy of organic evolution

In prokaryotes, the predominant site for control of gene expression is the  :

(1) transcription initiation 

(2) processing level

(3) transport of mRNA 

(4) translation level

In Hershey and Chase experiment, what finding led to the conclusion that DNA is the genetic material ?

(1) The presence of radioactivity in the bacteria when 35S was used.

(2) The presence of radioactivity in the supernatant when 35S was used.

(3) The presence of radioactivity in the bacteria when 32P was used.

(4) The presence of radioactivity in the supernatant when 32P was used.
