Which of the following characteristics of chloroplasts make them seem more similar to bacterial cells than to eukaryotic cells?
Group of answer choices (CAN BE MORE THAN 1):
Translation is sensitive to chloramphenicol
Alternate codons are found in the chloroplast genome
Introns are present in genes
DNA is not arranged in nucleosomes
Correct options are
These are characteristics of chloroplasts that make them seem more similar to bacterial cells than to eukaryotic cells. Chloroplasts contain 70s ribosomes and circular DNA as in prokaryotes. Chloroplast translations can be inhibited by chloramphenicol because, 70S ribosomes are sensitive to it. Cellular translations are inhibited by cycloheximide, as 80S ribosomes are sensitive to it. Chloroplast DNAs are not associated with histones. Genes in chloroplast DNA are organized into operons as in prokaryotes. Introns are seen in chloroplast DNA molecules as in eukaryotes.
