DNA (Continued)

DNA is the largest known molecule.28 It is shaped like a twisted spiral strand type ladder called a double helix. DNA is found inside the nucleus of a cell. The DNA is wound very tightly to prevent loss or mutation of genes. Our body has more than 10 Trillion cells.29 Each cell has 40,000 different genes.30 Genes denote our eye and hair color and all characteristics of every living animal and type of structure of all plants.

Recent revelations have identified a substance (pyrophosphite) found in iron meteorite that may provide a source of energy to positively react as a catalyst with DNA to begin the development of life.31 Continuing studies are underway. It is believed pyrophosphite is abundant in the universe.
