A plasmid and a linear DNA fragment has 4 restriction sites each for Hind III. Upon treating them with Hind III, how many fragments of plasmid and linear DNA can be formed?

  1. A
    Number of fragments of Plasmid= 4, Number of fragments of linear DNA= 5
  2. B
    Number of fragments of Plasmid= 4, Number of fragments of linear DNA= 4
  3. C
    Number of fragments of Plasmid= 5, Number of fragments of linear DNA= 5
  4. D
    Number of fragments of Plasmid= 5, Number of fragments of linear DNA= 4

    Solution:

    A plasmid and a linear DNA fragment has 4 restriction endonuclease site for Hind III. Therefore, acted upon by the restriction endonucleases the first cut converts the circular plasmid into a linear DNA and remaining 3 cuts forms 4 fragments of Plasmid. On the contrary, when the linear DNA is acted upon by the restriction endonucleases at 4 different sites it instantly generates 5 fragments of the linear DNA.
