    molecules have essential functions like as source of energy, materials for building new body mass such as muscles, and other molecules with essential functions like hemoglobin, which carries oxygen in the blood. These biomolecules are carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nuclei acids. Biomolecules are called polymers (large molecules) which are composed of smaller molecules known as monomers. 11.1 Elements Present in Biomolecules Biomolecules are organic compounds, thus they are composed…

  • Herpes Simplex Case Study

    case, it should be type 2 (HSV-2) since it is genital infection. The virion is spherical and it involves 35 proteins in the structure of virion. HSV-2 is the member of the Herpesviridae family. For the structure, it includes the envelope with lipid bilayer membrane which contains viral glycoprotein spikes. It also derived from nuclear membrane of infected cell. The tegument is the structure which inside of…

  • Lab 4: Osmotic Regulation Of Cell Volume

    Lab 4: Osmotic regulation of cell volume The eukaryotic organism requires homeostasis to maintain daily activities and life. Zooming into smaller units to make up an organism, cells also require homeostasis in order for the organisms to function. Understanding the different balance cells need to maintain will aid us in understanding how cells in organisms successfully maintain osmo-regulations. Eukaryotic cells have selective permeable membrane giving them the unique function of regulating…

  • Lysosoma Research Paper

    Brian Diaz & Emilio Hernandez Biology Honors Dr. Odom 12-4-17 Curing Cancer: Lysosome & Active Transport For this research project we used lysosomes as the cell structure and active transport as the cell capability. We used these factors in order to find a cure for breast cancer. The reason we chose breast cancer is because if anything were to go wrong we would have the capability of having a mastectomy before the cancer can spread. However, with lung cancer we don't have the ability to…

  • Fatty Acid Lab Report

    INTRODUCTION Fatty acid is a carboxylic acid with a long aliphatic chain, which is either saturated or unsaturated. Most of the naturally occurring fatty acids contain unbranched chain of an even number of carbon atoms, from 4 to 28. We usually derived fatty acids from triglycerides or phospholipids. Fatty acids are very important sources of fuel because, when they metabolized, they yield large amount of ATP .Fatty acids are regulated by certain transcription factors which control the action of…

  • Genetic Centriculation Lab Report

    to the cations in the lipid bilayer, which weakens the cell’s envelope. At this rate, the EDTA limits the DNA from degradation. After adding this solutions, the group resuspend each tube by vortexing each tube. Vortexer is a machine that mixes small samples of liquids. Adjusting the pipette to 200 µl, we add the second Miniprep solution or MP 2. This solution contains 0.2 M NaOH, and 1 percent of SDS. This solution lyses the cells. SDS is a detergent that dissolves the lipids that are contained…

  • Mitosis Stage

    Humans are constantly having to replenish lost cells in their bodies. They do this complicated task by a process called mitosis, which is part of the cell cycle, and mitosis allows one cell with 46 chromosomes to make an identical cell. The continuity of life from one cell to another is based on the reproduction of cells via cell division, so the concept is important to understand how the human body replaces lost cells. In order to have a full understanding of mitosis, the whole cell cycle…

  • Essay On Influenza Virus

    body systems the influenza virus affects. According to, the influenza virus is spherical and pleomorphic, ranging from 80 to 120 nanometers in diameter. According to, it’s covered in an envelope made of a lipid bilayer with spikes of glycoproteins called haemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA). The proteins help the virus bind with the host cell. Inside the envelope is the capsid, which is a protein shell containing genetic information. Seven or eight…

    unique biomembrane. This extremely thin membrane is the least permeable layer of the skin due to its remarkable composition of terminally differentiated keratinocytes (compressed keratin-filled corneocytes) anchored in the lipophilic matrix. The lipids in this lipophilic matrix are responsible for many functions such as providing diffusion pathway from skin surface to SC. The lipophilic matrix (Figure 1.) is unique because of its content as it composes of ceramides, free fatty acids and…
