    and Crick were equipped with the knowledge to know that the number of purines in a person’s DNA was the same as the number of pyrimidines; particularly, the amount of adenine was equal to the amount of thymine, and similarly with cytosine and guanine (“Discovery of DNA Structure & Function”). These nitrogenous bases include adenine and guanine as purines, and thymine and cytosine as pyrimidines. The only step remaining would be to explain how these chains work…

    Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) is a rare systemic condition that affects renal functioning and can develop into a life threatening disease with lasting complications. HUS is characterized by microangiopathic hemolytic anemia (destruction of red blood cells due to damage of small blood vessels), thrombocytopenia (an abnormal drop in platelet count) and impaired renal function (Nayer, A. & Asif, A., 2013). HUS can often onset after an infection of Escherichia coli which is a Shiga toxin-producing…

    How does the gene code works to control variation within a species: Genes control variation by coding for certain traits inside an organism. Those codes are adenine, cytosine, guanine and thymine. All of these four codes are acids and these acids depends on the variation within a species. This is how it makes an organism change the way it look physically. The four simple coded message codes for everything like eye color to height. Genes codes for many traits and they are important in…

    Sickle Cell Anaemia In this essay Sickle Cell Anemia will be investigated in depth. What causes it, how it is passed on from generation to generation, and it’s origin will be explored, along with it’s how it occurs, how often it occurs and whether or not some races are more susceptible to it. Statistics and mortality rates will be included as well as some treatments and suggestions for those suffering with the disorder. Sickle Cell Anemia can lead to many painful side effects of varying…

    reaction that generates ATP and reduced NADP (NICOTINAMIDE ADENINE DIPHOSPHATE) which are used to power a series of reactions known as the Calvin Cycle or the light-independent stage. Aerobic respiration requires oxygen and anaerobic respiration to occur in the absence of oxygen. Aerobic respiration is a series of redox reactions that can produce up to 36 molecules of ATP per molecule of glucose and the reduced coenzyme NADH (NICOTINAMIDE ADENINE D. Aerobic respiration has four stages:…

    Proteins Proteins are large, complex macromolecules that play many important roles in organisms. They are required for the regulation, structure, and function of the body’s organs and tissues. Some may act as antibodies, chemical messengers, enzymes, structural components, and transport devices within the cell. Proteins are made up of hundreds or thousands of smaller subunits known as amino acids. Amino acids are made up of a single carbon atom attached to a carboxyl group, an amino group, and a…

    This is down to the fact that Niacin helps to produce a coenzyme known as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD for short. It is this molecule that is essential for these metabolic and physiological processes. Niacin is water soluble, which means that it breaks down in water, as opposed to some vitamins, that happen to be fat soluble…

    Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the main energy carrier within cells. ATP is a nucleotide and consists of adenine, a ribose sugar and a triphosphate unit. ATP is “an energy-rich molecule because its triphosphate unit contains two phosphoanhydride bonds” and, a significant amount of energy is released when these bonds are broken1. Oxidative phosphorylation is a metabolic pathway whereby mitochondria in living cells generate ATP from the oxidation of nutrients. This process involves the transfer…

    development ,reproduction and growth of all living organism including viruses. DNA are composed of simpler monomer units called nucleotide. They are termed polynucleotide as DNA have two strands. Nucleotides is composed of four nitrogenous base, they are ADENINE(A), THYMINE (T),CYTOSINE(C), and GUANINE (G).””(DNA) DNA bases pair up with each other, A:T and C:G, to form units called base pairs. Each base is also attached to a sugar molecule and a phosphate molecule. Together, a base,…
