Packing the entire length of DNA into tiny chromosomes is problematic because DNA carries a negative charge, unless neutralized prevented. Test folds and winding due to electrostatic repulsion greater the amount of DNA, the more negative charge along its length must be neutralized. Dinoflagellates have much more nuclear DNA than humans, said Texas A & M biologist Peter Rizzo, who worked on the research with Levi-Setti and Konstantin Gavrilov, a Visiting Research Scientist in the Enrico Fermi Institute at the University of Chicago.
Wondering if there could be a fundamental evolutionary process at work, extended Levi-Setti his research of the fruit Like mammals, fruit flies, the pantheon of eukaryotes are in contrast to prokaryotes like bacteria, eukaryotes pack their genetic material in a nucleus prokaryotes lacks a core ‘cation a very important role in the folding and charge neutralization of DNA in all eukaryotes, but more so in dinoflagellates, ‘Rizzo said.
