Is an entire chromosome made into an mRNA during transcription?

Summary Introduction

To determine: Whether the entire chromosome is made into an mRNA during transcription.

Introduction: The DNA is packed in the nucleus to form thread-like structures known as chromosomes. Tightly coiled DNA is present around chromosomes containing histone proteins. The chromosomes are present in the nucleus of the cell.

Explanation of Solution

Transcription process involves the production of an RNA molecule from DNA with the help of RNA polymerase. In a eukaryotic cell, DNA strands contain both coding and non-coding part known as exons and introns respectively. Non-coding part of a chromosome does not code for mRNA during the process of transcription...
