The original high estimate of the number of protein-coding genes in humans was based partly on the number of different known proteins made by the human organism. How can the small number of genes now thought to be present account for this larger number of proteins synthesized by human cells? What observations of vertebrate genes tend to support this possibility?
20. What type of DNA sequence in eukaryotes is most like that found in bacteria and viruses?
