Kinetochore is the protein structure in eukaryotes which assembles on the centromere and links the chromosome to microtubule polymers from the mitotic spindle during mitosis. Centriole is a barrel-shaped microtubule structure. It found in most animal cells, important in the process of mitosis or the nuclear division.
Alleles are variants of the same gene. It occurs on the same place on a chromosome. A locus refers to the location on the chromosome where the gene is found. Loci is the plural form of locus.
vs DNA Polymerase:
A RNA primer is a short stretch of nucleic acid. It is made up of the single-stranded RNA molecule. An RNA polymerase, called DNA primase synthesizes a short stretch of single-stranded RNA molecule for startingreplication. The single-stranded RNA primer provides a free 3' OH group. It is required for DNA polymerase.
RFLPs vs Southern
Southern blot analysis is used for the detection of DNA or gene sequence in circular or large DNA. On the other hand RFLP or Restriction Fragment Length Ploymorphism is used for comparethe DNA fragments after reaction with restriction enzymes.
