REFLECT AND APPLY Why is it reasonable that eukaryotes have a DNA polymerase (Pol γ ) that operates only in mitochondria?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The reason for the fact that eukaryotes have a DNA polymerase (Pol γ) that operates only in mitochondria is to be provided.

Concept introduction:

DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) polymerase is an enzyme that catalyzes the addition of deoxynucleotides into the new DNA strand.

Eukaryotes contain 15 different types of DNA polymerase, whereas prokaryotes contain only 5 different kinds of DNA polymerase.

Origin of replication (ORI) is the site at which DNA replication or DNA duplication process takes place.

Symbiosis is a type of relationship in which two organisms are interdependent on each other for their survival.

Explanation of Solution

Eukaryotes have many different types of DNA polymerase out of which DNA polymerase alpha, beta, gamma, delta, and epsilon are mostly studied. In prokaryotes, DNA pol I, II, and III are extensively studied. The DNA polymerases recognize a single origin of replication in prokaryotes and multiple origins of replication in eukaryotes. Since the bacterial cell is smaller than the eukaryotic cell, the mitochondria are easily contained inside the eukaryotic cell.

The process by which smaller particles are engulfed by the cell is called endocytosis...
