    structure (double-helix structure) of the DNA. The DNA had been discovered in the late 1800s, but Watson and Crick determine the genetic inheritance which contain human genes. These two researchers found that DNA consists of four elements known as Adenine, Cytosine, Guanine, and Thymine and that DNA replicated itself. In 1961, Nirenberg and Matthaei worked on encoding the genetic code. In 1972, Berg discovered the molecular cloning of DNA and in 1977, Sanger provide information of the sequence…

    Heavy metals are found toxic to humans as well as canines. Canines are much more susceptible to absorbing heavy metals than humans. One of the major effects of the heavy metals is reducing the metabolism in both humans and canines through accumulation of toxins. This experiment can provide evidence as to how much of the experimental toxin (arsenic and cadmium) affects cells’ metabolism when allowed to accumulate after 72 hours. In addition, different amounts of arsenic and cadmium (50 ppm, 100…

    Huntington’s disease is a continuous brain disorder that is the source of involuntary motion, emotional and mental instability as well as cognition damage. It is an inherited disorder relatively common in adults aged thirty to forty. People of European decent typically have a higher chance of being born with the gene that causes HD, while those of Asian and African background have a lower probability. For HD to be developed only one copy of the mutated huntingtin (HTT) gene must be inherited.…

    Oswald Avery had confirmed that DNA was the carrier of hereditary information. Alexander Todd, an organic chemist, confirmed that the backbone of DNA contained repeating sugar and phosphate groups. Erwin Chargaff discovered that the nitrogenous bases adenine and thymine appeared in a 1:1 ratio, along with guanine and cytosine. Maurice Wilkins and Rosaline Franklin had proposed the corkscrew like shape of DNA when viewing X-ray images of DNA. Linus Pauling had even gone so far as to suggest his…

    else's body has the same DNA. DNA is usually located in the cell nucleus (nuclear DNA),however small amounts of DNA can be found in the mitochondria (mitochondrial DNA or mtDNA). The DNA has information stored as a code created by four chemical bases: adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G), and thymine (T). Each base is connected to a sugar molecule and phosphate molecule. All together it’s called a nucleotide. A nucleotides are set in two long strands creating a spiral effect called (double…

    Huntington’s disease is a progressive and fatal type of dementia caused by dominant allele in chromosome 4. (Kail & Cavanaugh, 2016, 2013, 2010, p. 44) It is an autosomal-assertive, progressive neurodegenerative affliction with a definite phenotype, including chorea, lack of coordination, cognitive deterioration, and behavioral difficulties. (Perandones, Micheli, & Radrizzani, 2010, p. vii) Huntington’s disease was identified by George Huntington in 1872. Huntington Disease is also referred to…

    Organisms present on the Gram film were obtained from patient sputum. This suggests that the organisms can be present either in the airways or in the lungs. Gram film shows Gram-positive (purple- dark colour) elongated oval shaped (cocci) cells. Bacteria are present as diplococci (pairs of cocci), nevertheless they also appeared as single cells and short chains of few cells (four cells chain is visible at the Gram film). Morphological appearance of bacteria, Gram stain and presence of the…

    Structure and function have always had a close relationship in biological, chemical and general terms. Often the functionality is dependent upon the structure, for example the villi on the epithelial cells increase the surface area and hence the rate of absorbance of molecules in to cells and the blood stream. DNAs function is highly specific to its structure as even the smallest change to this could cause a long term effect, or even death. Base sequence mutations, errors in replication and…

    dopamine biosynthesis, do not function without coenzymes. The three coenzymes involved in the formation of dopamine are: tetrahydrofolic acid, used for L-tyrosine to L-dopa; Pyridoxal phosphate, used for L-dopa to dopamine; and NADH (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide + Hydrogen), used for the formation of tetrahydrofolic acid and pyridoxal phosphate. These three coenzymes are derivatives of vitamins either consumed or present in the…
