    proposed many models including identical base pairing, proposing that adenine always paired with thymine, and guanine with cytosine. They suggested that when arranged at a certain angle, hydrogen bonds form between the pairs of bases. Once they had become aware of Chargaff’s results which he published in 1951 stating that the proportions of the bases in DNA showing a standard ratio: there was always the same proportion of adenine as thymine and of guanine as cytosine. Watson and Crick built…

    1) Centrioles are a paired feature of animal mitotic spindles that protrude away from the centrisome of cells and are primarily tasked with the creation of microtubules. The microtubules give way to mitotic spindles, which play a vital role in both mitosis and cytokinesis as they give cilia and flagellum the ability to generate motion and they ensure both newly formed cells contain paired centrioles during the later stages of cell division. Kinetochores are protein structures that produce…

    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.…

    Insulin is the body’s main way to lower the blood glucose levels when they get to high. When the blood glucose levels get to low the hormone glycogen is produced. They both come from the pancreas but insulin also helps glucose get transported into the cells (Quesada et al., 2008). The body uses glucose as a primary source of energy through a variety of metabolic reactions. Glucose is a sugar that gets broken down through glycolysis into ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) inside of the cell (Stanfield,…

    of an organism's genome. Nucleotides basically are building blocks of deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA. nucleotides are made up of three subunits. A nitrogen base, a sugar molecule, and a phosphate group. The nitrogen bases can be adenine, guanine, cytosine, or thymine. Adenine may only pair with thymine, and cytosine will only pair with guanine when being created . When there is an error in replication, a deletion of genetic information, or insertion or adding of genetic information, it is a…

    A nucleotide is made up of three things. It consists of a nitrogenous base made up of either adenine, cytosine, guanine or thymine. The nucleotide also contains either the sugar deoxyribose or ribose. Finally, it contains one or more phosphate groups. Nucleotides bond together and form a double helix, which was discovered by scientists Francis Crick and James Watson in 1956. Sucrose molecules contain a number of polar oxygen-hydrogen bonds, each with an effective positive or negative charge. In…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…
