  • Citric Acid Cycle Research Paper

    generates energy from the oxidation of various fuel molecules to acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl CoA). Acetyl CoA undergoes several redox, hydration and decarboxylation reactions to produce carbon dioxide (CO2), reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH), reduced flavin adenine dinucleotide (FADH2), adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and hydrogen ions. The citric acid cycle links glycolysis which produces pyruvate from glucose and oxidative phosphorylation which generates ATP which is used as energy…

  • Carbohydrates: Macromolecules In Plants And Animals

    Carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids are large biological molecules that play a major role in relation to the structure and function in plants and animals. These organic molecules consist of many examples and functions. Each biological molecule has a unique function and emergent properties that helps contribute to the cellular structure in both plants and animals. These biological molecules are known as macromolecules because they are large and are composed of thousands of atoms.…

  • Protein Synthesis: The Two Types Of DNA And RNA

    A nucleic acid is a polymer that is made up of smaller units called nucleotides. These nucleotides play a significant role in creating important structures found in our body such as deoxyribonucleic acid, more commonly referred to as DNA, and ribonucleic acid or RNA. (Erster, Lecture 4 Chapter 5) Ribonucleic acid is then categorized into two types of RNA: mRNA and tRNA (there are other types but the ones mainly discussed in protein synthesis only involved these two). The DNA and RNA are partners…

  • Phot Dna Fingerprinting Research Paper

    The discovery of deoxyribonucleic acid, also known as DNA, was a ground breaking discovery for the scientific community. Its discovery made ground breaking impacts that would only prove to be more detrimental to society with time. On top of the high prominence in the scientific field, the discovery would also go on over to make waves in the criminal justice field as well. The discovery of deoxyribonucleic acid was not a discovery made by any one given person, but was instead a collaborative…

  • Difference Between Human And Chimpanzee

    unique to one another. All living cells contain DNA, which is the basic unit for growing, reproducing, and surviving. DNA, Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid is comprised of 4 different types of bases; adenine, thymine, guanine, and cytosine that are proteins. These 4 bases rely on each other because of adenine pairs up with thymine, while cytosine pairs up with guanine. These different types of pairs rely on each other so that they can continue the process of making base pairs. If there is an…

  • Dna Fingerprinting Case Summary

    Genetic information is inheritable, that is, they are passed on from parents to their offspring. DNA is contained in the chromosome and is present in the nucleus of cells of human body. DNA consists of nucleotides like adenine, guanine, cytosine and thymine. In each case, adenine pairs up with thymine and guanine pairs up with cytosine to form the DNA backbone. Now in each DNA the sequence in which these nucleotides are present is what distinguishes one individual from another and is unique to…

  • Structure And Replication Of DNA

    The Structure and Replication of DNA Introduction The structure and replication of DNA is important for organisms to develop and survive as it what has the control over all of bodies functions. DNA is converted in to messages that are used to produce proteins molecules, important for bodily functions. Without DNA genes would not be able to performs tasks such as telling the body how to create proteins which in turn would not allow proteins to create enzymes, hormones and other important…

  • Erwin Schrödinger: The Cell Theory

    Erwin Schrödinger was a physicist pioneer who gave a series of lectures in 1944. They were published under the title What is Life? (Harold, 2001). Though philosophical in nature, many have wondered if life can be reduced to biology or even further down to chemistry. This sent many scientists looking for the answer and spawned the guiding question, could human life be artificially created at the cellular level? This would consist of arranging the correct amounts of various elements into the…

  • Ultraviolet Radiation Lab Report

    Environments Introduction DNA is composed of two strands composed of polynucleotides arranged in a double helix formation composed of four nucleotide subunits: adenine (A), thymine (T), guanine (G), and cytosine (C). Each base must form a hydrogen bond with its respective compatible base, therefore adenine always bonds with thymine and guanine always bonds with cytosine. DNA is used to transfer genetic information to be able to duplicate a cell completely and successfully(6).…

  • Dna From Strawberry Experiment

    Introduction DNA is called deoxyribonucleic acid. This contains a phosphate group, sugars, and a complementary base. DNA is found in plants and animal cells in the nucleus. The nucleus is the control center where DNA is replicated or produced within a cell. DNA also contains our genetic material. This is possible due to differences in individual’s phenotype and genotype. DNAs structure is double helical; meaning two strands are parallel to each other and in a ladder formation. This can occur…
