Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A restriction map is a map of known restriction sites within a sequence of DNA. Restriction mapping requires the use of restriction enzymes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well tammy said it quite clear. never the less i know you so good now that i guess you want it simplifyed? ^^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1EmmaH one thing: That thought never orcure to me, the only reason i can this is becuase i ones was in your positon and asked for answers  So i don't judge. anyway back to the case.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1See attachment: A restriction map tell you where on DNA string where a specific restriction enzyme is going to work: A analogy for this would be a real map: imagen you have a lot of cities with specific names (they are enzymes) and the whole map discribe how the cities are placed acording to each other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The restriction map i used as example is the plasmid pGLO

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Remember that plasmids are DNA circles that is why it is a circle on the figure in the attachment.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i get the fact that a restriction map shows where ba restriction enzyme is but..what is a restriction enzyme?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A restriction enzyme is a enzyme that is able to cut the DNA into smaller strings every time there is a specfic sequence of bases.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok so the restricted enzymes are like the cutting toold for when you want to splice dna and the restiction nmap nshows where restiction dna is right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The most common thing is that it is a palindromic sequence

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Emm... palindromic comes from the Greek word palindromos and means 'coming again, which again goes the same way'. (symmetric)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright so i got it earlier when i said.....the restricted enzymes are like the cutting toold for when you want to splice dna and the restiction nmap nshows where restiction dna is right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well: more to say that the restiction map show where restiction enzyme works on the DNA... kinda like a blueprint

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ooooooh ok thanks! got it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Last thing: this is just to show the concept of a palindromic sequenence (see attachment)
