  • Analysis Of The ZIKA Virus

    the world. This project sheds light on the mystery novel that allows ZIKV invasion and infection the host cells. A penetration process of ZIKA virus occurs by binding with Gas6 protein or (Growth arrest-specific 6) that leads to activate the Axl protein and release a downstream cascade of signaling within the cells, moreover, Axl signaling plays a significant role in protecting the human cell from stranger guests through a marvelous process called fluid-phase uptake. The hypothesis is a ZIKA…

  • Relationship Between Hopaf1 And MTN2

    and the Carolina Centre for Genome Sciences at the University of North Carolina, and the Department of Biological Chemistry at John Innes Centre, have uncovered a correlation between bacterial protein, a molecule that performs most functions within cells (the general units of life). Erica J. Washington and her team used methods such as the use of microscopes, separation of proteins based on size, and production of the 3D experimental protein by utilizing closely related proteins as models.…

  • Crohn's Disease: A Structural Analysis

    appreciated particularly in epithelial cells and when their formation is compromised; I aim to briefly explore the cause of Crohn’s disease to illustrate this. Furthermore, I will outline the key structural components of TJs which make them dynamic across different tissues using the blood-brain barrier as an example meanwhile discussing some ambiguities that require further research. TJs play vital roles in paracellular transport (movement of substances via gaps between cells) (Anderson, Van…

  • Cystic Fibrosis

    When there are genetic mutations that affect the cystic fibrosis trans-membrane conductance regulator (CFTR) protein, Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the outcome. CF was recently linked to CFTR defects, which is a major gene, found on the seventh chromosome. Cystic Fibrosis is not only the most common disease among those of Caucasian decent, but it also happens to be the most deadly inherited disease that affects more often Caucasian Americans. In the United States one in twenty among Caucasians are…

  • Difference Between Deep Freeze Storage And Cold Storage

    point of the bacteria cells, enhancing supercooling. With bacteria, adding glycerol to final concentration of 15% will help protect from damage of freezing and thawing. When the freezing point of bacterial cells lowered by the use of glycerol, its prevent the formation of ice crystal which can cause intracellular injuries. Generally, the colder the storage temperature, the longer the culture will retain viable cells. The increase in salt concentration, can damage the bacterial cell by…

  • Muscle Cells Lab Report

    produces. In order to fully understand how a muscle contracts, it is necessary to first understand the structure of muscle cells. Muscles cells are large cells that are surrounded by a special membrane called the sarcolemma and are filled with fluid called sarcoplasm. The sarcoplasm abounds with mitochondria for energy production and ribosomes for protein manufacturing. Muscle cells are also packed with many…

  • A Synthesis Of A CO2-Respensive GM-AD-H

    restoring cartilage and controllable delivery of Epirubicin Background of research Hydrogels have crosslinked microstructure and can swell up in water without resolving. Their soft and rubbery nature minimizes inflammatory reactions of the surrounding cells, and have a good prospect in biomedical applications such as clinic repair material or studying interaction between implanted materials by imitating extracellular matrix.1 Some hydrogels are potential to be injected as they experience viscous…

  • Case Study: Spermatozoa And Its Arrival To The Egg

    Arrival to the Egg Before embarking in the complexity of CatSper channels, the particular characteristics of sperm and its movement towards the egg in female that allows for fertilization should be addressed. Spermatozoa are differentiated motile cells that have two main structures: the head, which houses packed DNA, and the flagellum, the motility portion that transports the sperm genetic information to the egg (1). Within the spermatozoa head both a vesicle which covers the head, known as the…

  • Osmosis And Hypertonic Solution

    together because of their kinetic energy (Hyperphysics, n.d.). It is a type of transport located in the cell membrane. Diffusion could also be described as the movement of molecules from areas of high concentration to areas of low concentration. The molecules do this because all molecules are constantly moving, so in enough time the molecules will spread evenly. According to figure 1, the cell will make the outside solution the same concentration of water as the concentration on the inside. In…

  • Experiment: Exploring Changes In Osmosis

    changes in Osmosis Abstract: In science, it’s said that cell tissue can be permeable, this means that the cell tissue can regulate what fluids or airs travel through the membrane. For a cell to be able to have that kind of attribute, it permits us to conclude that cell tissues contribute significantly in passive transport. Passive transport is the measure of constituents through the cell membrane minus any involvement of energy by the cell. This experiment was done in order to govern how osmosis…
