  • Protein Synthesis Lab Report

    A Comparison of Protein Synthesis between Eukaryotes and Prokaryotes The different fundamental organisation of genetic material and organelles between eukaryotes and prokaryotes leads to dissimilar processes of protein synthesis. The larger eukaryotes have a more intricate pathway associated with protein synthesis, due to both the biochemical structure of organelles and enzymes, and also the transport of genetic material within cell. In this essay I hope to explore the differences of gene…

  • Deoxyribonucleic Acid Synthesis

    replication of a long length of DNA is challenging when a cell divides, but a special set of enzymes correctly and quickly carries the process out. The base of DNA may be any one of the four types in a nucleotide: thymine(T), guanine (G), cytosine (C), or adenine (A). The double strand of DNA is held together by hydrogen bonds. Ribonucleic Acid better known as RNA is a protein single strand composed of molecules and its nucleotides contain ribose. This is another type of nucleic acid that…

  • Cra Gene Lab Report

    The purpose of this lab report is to discuss experiments performed in order to study the ctrA gene. It was hypothesized that ctrA will be present in the four bacterial species studied, which are Rhodobacter sphaeroides 2.4.1, Rhodobacter sphaeroides 17029, Escherichia coli DH5훂, and Rhodopseudomonas palustris BisB5. It was also hypothesized that ctrA is more conserved in closely related species and less conserved in not closely related species. The last hypothesis for this study is that the…

  • Protein Synthesis Research Paper

    Transfer RNA Transfer RNA (tRNA) is a crucial component in Protein Synthesis. It serves as an adaptor molecule between the codon, the three nucleic acids and the amino acid after which a specific protein will be synthesized. It is the intermediate in Protein Synthesis which interprets the genetic code. Without tRNA, translation in prokaryotes or eukaryotes could not take place. Common Features of tRNA Molecule Each amino acid has at least one tRNA molecule. Therefore, these tRNA molecules have…

  • Ammonia Analysis

    Ammonia is an end-product of deamination of amino acids. In vivo, it is physiologically produced, predominantly in the gastrointestinal tract, myocytes, lymphocytes, and the kidney. Ammonia is neurotoxic if it accumulates but, normally, it is metabolized to urea by hepatocytes, and to glutamine by myocytes and hepatocytes. Urea is excreted by the kidney, but can also diffuse into all tissues and body fluids. In the gastrointestinal tract, bacterial ureases produce ammonia from the urea.…

  • Case Study Of Rosalind Franklin

    For the Carleton Prize for Biotechnology, I would like to nominate the brilliant scientist Rosalind Franklin. Her crystallographic work at King’s College, London was a crucial contribution to the double-helix model of DNA discovered by James Watson and Francis Crick (Gregory, 2002). Her contributions to the scientific community are still being quoted today and without the discovery of the structure of DNA, present day scientific projects such as The Genome project would not have been possible…

  • Essay On Bio Macromolecules

    An insight in the biophysical properties of bio macromolecules Natural biopolymers such as nucleic acids, proteins and carbohydrates are essential for life as we see it today. It is incredible to think how this vast set of molecules that are in every living thing, from bacteria to human beings, are mostly made up by six elements (carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur and phosphorus). These biopolymers have the properties to, from small monomers, build giant tridimensional structures with a…

  • The Human Micro Biome Project

    Lombard (90) notes that biotechnology is the use of organisms and their products for commercials purposes. It is the basic fundamental principle of genetic engineering as it entails the genes transfer of various methods in production of recombinant proteins, transgenic plants and animals for commercial applications. In nutshell, genetic engineering is the driving force of biotechnology industry in the world .In this filed, there are two areas of interest, that is production of beneficial enzymes…

  • Genetic Disorders Research Paper

    The four nitrogen containing bases also stand for Adenine, Guanine, Thymine, and Cytosine. DNA has many different jobs that it has to do constantly to keep the body going. Certain genes in the body are controlled to be turned on or off, because sometimes we don’t need every single gene at all times. Therefore…
