  • Protein Analysis Lab Report Protein

    mobility and molecular weight. It can be seen more clearly that as the Rf value increased, the more the molecular weight decreased. 14.4 kD had the highest Rf of 0.926, compared to 94 kD with an Rf of 0.211. Figure 2: The semi-logarithmic graph above showed the relationship between relative mobility and molecular weight. Figure 3 showed the actual picture of the gel and its bands, noting the most important ones. Using Figure 2’s regression line, the most important bands’ molecular weight…

  • Pros And Cons Of Genetic Research

    INTRODUCTION Genetically modified organisms are a very controversial topic around the world. Primarily in the United States the debate is over whether they are safe as well as economically feasible to produce. There are many ways to look at this topic. First one must understand what a genetically modified organism is. After that, one must understand the advantages and disadvantages these organisms play. There are many advantages and disadvantages to genetically modified organisms. Some of the…

  • Bovine Serum Albumin Case Study

    Bovine serum albumin (BSA) is usually used for generation of nanoparticles (NPs) in drug delivery systems. This paper presents a study on the simple coacervation method for fabrication of BSA nanoparticles.An artificial neural network (ANN) model was developed to predict the diameter of nanoparticles based on experimental data. Effect of pH, temperature, initial BSA and cross linker concentration, molar ratio of BSA to ethanol, agitation rate and rate of ethanol addition were investigated on the…

  • Genetic Engineering In Medicine

    genetic makeup of cells, including the transfer of genes within and across species boundaries to produce improved or novel organisms. New DNA may be inserted in the host genome by first isolating and copying the genetic material of interest using molecular cloning methods to generate a DNA sequence, or by synthesizing the DNA, and then inserting this construct into the host organism. Genetic engineering has applications in medicine, research, industry and agriculture and can be used on a wide…

  • Essay On Salivary Amylase

    Enzymes are catalysts to help facilitate chemical reactions (RSC 2004). They do not cause the reaction to occur, but they speed up the rate of reaction (RSC 2004). Each enzyme is a specific protein, meaning they work for the purpose of a particular reaction or substance (EUFIC 2016). This can help explain why they are essential in the role of digestion. The particular enzyme that we looked at in this experiment was salivary amylase. Salivary amylase is an enzyme that helps with the breakdown of…

  • Importance Of Cell Culture And Cell Counting

    Cell culture & cell counting: Introduction: Cell culture is the method of removal of cells from their respective animal or plant source, followed by their growth in a favourable artificial environment. These cells can be removed directly from tissues or fragmented using enzymatic or mechanical method. These cells can be obtained from the already established cell line or cell strain. Short protocol:In this protocol, initially cells were washed to remove adherent cells, incubated and…

  • Chitocan Case Study

    Preparation of coating solutions Chitosan solution was prepared with 2 % (w/v) chitosan in 1% (v/v) acetic acid glacial. The solution was placed on a hot plate/magnetic stirrer for 6 h. The resultant chitosan-based coating solution was filtrated, through a Whatman filter paper No: 2, glycerol was added at 0.75 % (w/v), and stirred for more than 15 minutes. Two of the best concentrations, 60 and 90 mg mL−1 were prepared from freeze-dried IgY for S. putrefaciens and P. fluorescens respectively.…

  • Analysis: In-Silico Assessment Analysis Of Malaria

    Objective: In-silico assessment analysis of Protein database entries of the Pf. lactate dehydrogenase (PfLDH) enzyme, considered as an important target for designing of anti-malarial drugs. Methods: PDB structures of the enzyme Pf. lactate dehydrogenase were downloaded from Protein Data Bank. These were subjected to ANOLEA energy assessment analysis and Swiss model was used to analyse Ramachandran plot. Results: The energy assessment analysis and analysis of Ramachandran plot were carried out…
