The Development of the DNA-To-Be inside the Chromosome-To-Be
It is very natural in nature that when a solid object is dipped into a fluid, the solid object will soon be seen to be coated with the fluid. This so because the bound between two different kind of substances is stronger than that between molecules of the fluid. Proof of this can be seen by taking the solid object out of the fluid—the fluid is seen to stick itself to the object. This is much similar to the DNA-to-be inside the various other compounds and whose outer part is coated with protein compounds. Under such a circumstance, whatever the change that occurs to the DNA-to-be, the coat will always remain attached to it. In illustrations 1, 2, 3, and 4 it can be seen how the coat blankets the DNA-to-be later to become the Chromosome-to-be.
In illustration 1 the DNA-to-be is seen to have already had some of the compounds that are present in today’s DNA. It has by then already had a thin layer of protein coating. In Illustration 2, the DNA-to-be twists, thereby it becomes shorter.
Having undergone millions of times of division; and having had its compounds completely recovered through external substances with the aid of the rays of the sunlight, the DNA-to-be regains its pre-division form intact (a process similar to anabolism). Further, by its having been carried over now and then by some other substances which may add to the variety of substances already existing in it, the DNA-to-be virtually gets longer and longer.(illustration 3).
Illustration 2 is an enlarged drawing of the DNA-to-be in its twisted state, whereas Illustration 3 depicts the DNA-to-be inside a bag, so shaped as to form large twists from small twists. Illustration 4 shows the protein bag getting completely filled with the DNA-to-be. The continuous twisting of the DNA-to-be makes it look like a rope with larger twists at its lower end (see illustration 5). In the illustration above it can be seen that the protein bag, now having a definite shape—one that occurred at the very same time the Chromosome got its X shape—displays some “defects”, resembling an extremely coarse surface, on the blanket of the DNA-to-be. (Relate this with the discussions under the heading “The X-shaped Chromosome”).
It is not only the DNA-to-be that twists; the resulting twists also twist, whereby larger twists are formed. What’s more, the DNA-to-be also releases itself from the core of the Cell-to-be.
In its further development the DNA-to-be involves molecules such as Histone and others, thereby causing it to lose the simple shape it once had earlier. No matter how slight the peculiarity is, this may in its later development lead to the occurrence of things that may seem to be extremely complex—though in fact they are but natural things.
With the Cell-to-be divided, the DNA-to-be splits itself up into two equal parts, each part bearing all the conditions that exist inside the DNA-to-be when it was originally formed from both the external and internal conditions of the Cell-to-be. As such a thing happens every time the DNA-to-be splits itself up, the DNA-to-be is thus said to bear with it hereditary characteristics and genetic information.
