    One peice of experimental evidence for semi conservative mechanism for replication of DNA involves the use of bacteria lebelled with heavy isotope of NITROGEN 15 (i) which componenet of DNA would be labelled with nitrogen 15 ?

    Pretty sure it's the base. The nitrogenous base.

    I take it you're testing the semi-conservative hypothesis? But as SH0405 mentioned, it would be a nitrogenous base that is labelled with Nitrogen-15 (i.e. thymine).
