    Demonstration of Cellular Respiration Inside Lima Beans Cells in Vitro Purpose: Cellular respiration is a series of metabolic reactions that take place in the mitochondria and produce chemical energy in the form of ATP by the breakdown of food molecules.There are three processes involved in cellular respiration; glycolysis, the Krebs cycle and the electron transport chain. During this processes, glucose is oxidized by a series of redox reactions and its electrons and hydrogen ions are donated to two electron carriers called NAD+ and FAD. The electron carriers transport the electrons and hydrogen ions to the electron transport chain and hydrogen ions and electrons are passed to the last electron acceptor, which is oxygen. In this laboratory, the rate of cellular respiration in lima beans cells was measured. The quantitative data was measured by a spectrophotometer. For this, succinate and a solution called DPIP were used. During the Krebs cycle, succinate is oxidized and its electrons are donated to the electron carrier FAD. Due to the redox reaction, succinate becomes fumarate and FDA becomes FADH2. DPIP is a blue solution in its oxidized state and it acted as FDA during the experiment. This solution changes from blue to colorless when it’s being reduced. It was hypothesized that the faster reaction rate happens in in solutions containing more substrate during the reaction. If more succinate is added to a solution, then the reaction rate will increase and the color change of…

    Flow batteries have been around since the 1970’s this technological advance in the field of energy storage and acts as a fuel cell which can provide a new and efficient energy supply. One of the biggest advantages of flow batteries is that they can practically in an instance recharge just by replacing the electrolyte liquid,while this happens it is recovering the spent materials for recharge. Several different flow batteries have been developed, including Redox, Hybrid and, Membraneless. The…

    The cyano-ethoxy carbonyl protection Manoharan et al. (1999) developed 2(cyanoethoxycarbonyloxy)succinimide S.27a a stable, crystalline, and convenient reagent for the protection of pendant akylamines in oligonucleotides (Figure X.X.X). The 2-cyanoethyl (ce) group is the most common phosphate protecting group in oligonucleotides; however, ce and corresponding 2-(cyanoethoxycarbonyl) group were not utilized for the nucleobase protection until 2000. Merk et al. (2000) developed…

    The citric acid cycle generates energy from the oxidation of various fuel molecules to acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl CoA). Acetyl CoA undergoes several redox, hydration and decarboxylation reactions to produce carbon dioxide (CO2), reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH), reduced flavin adenine dinucleotide (FADH2), adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and hydrogen ions. The citric acid cycle links glycolysis which produces pyruvate from glucose and oxidative phosphorylation which generates ATP…

    Mitochondria are our cell’s power plants. They descended from bacteria about two billion years ago, and get flaky as we age. A commonly accepted theory about aging is that the decaying of mitochondria is the driving force of aging. There is no evidence as to why the mitochondria decay. But, there have been connections to the decay of mitochondria and heart failure, neurodegeneration, and lack of energy. Recent experiments and research show that it isn’t completely out of reach to slow or even…

    LEBER HEREDITARY NEUROPATHY PATHOPHYSIOLOGY Three mitochondria mutations contribute to Leber hereditary neuropathy disease. The three mitochondria mutations G11778A, G3460A, T14484C occurs inside of complex 1 Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide ubiquinone oxidoreductase (Chinnery et al., 2001). Complex 1 NADH: ubiquinone oxidoreductase is mainly for the transferring of electrons within the mitochondrial in the respiratory chain (Garmier et.al, 2008). When the respiratory chain is not…

    What does NADH stand for? First off it stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydride. Now NADH is a natural occurring substance that is found in living organisms, with an “H” that actually stand for high energy hydrogen. Now what does this hydrogen have to do with NADH? Well when NAD has this “H” it therefore means it is in the most active biological form possible. NADH is also known as coenzyme 1 in our bodies, and is also the top ranked coenzyme that we have in our body. Since it is…

    haemolysis. S. pneumonia is α-haemolysis (Allegrucci and Sauer, 2006), which will appear as dark greenish discoloration under the colonies on agar. α-haemolytic Streptococci can be distinguished by optochin sensitivity test (Arbique et al., 2004). S. pneumonia is optochin sensitive, while S. viridans is resistant. Bile test can also be performed. S. pneumonia cells will lyse in 10% desoxycholate (bile salts) within a few minutes (Arbique et al., 2004). Immunological assay can be also used in…

    This is down to the fact that Niacin helps to produce a coenzyme known as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD for short. It is this molecule that is essential for these metabolic and physiological processes. Niacin is water soluble, which means that it breaks down in water, as opposed to some vitamins, that happen to be fat soluble. Bodybuilding and Health Benefits Of Niacin Now that we know what Niacin is, let’s look at the numerous bodybuilding and health benefits of Niacin.…
