Re: Why is ATP rather than GTP, CTP or TTP the energy currency?

... ATP) allows `the final fidelity check` to take place. Is GTP hydrolysis inherently slower than ATP hydrolysis? Surely it would just depend on the active site of the enzyme catalysing hydrolysis, and theoretically this could be achieved with ATP too? Secondly, almost all of them CTP-GTP-TTP and ...

Locomotory Evolution

... more easily catch prey and prey which are faster can easily escape. A second advantage to a bilaterian body plan other than the ability to be more active is that the sense organs and nervous system can be situated anteriorly. This enables the organism to react more quickly to stimuli and as the ...

Main Factors that Affect Clinical Consequence of Toxicity

... of the toxic compound also affects its availability for absorption. Adjuvants are formulation factors used to alter the toxicologic effect of the active ingredient. The binding agents, enteric coating, and sustained-release preparations influence absorption of the active ingredient. As absorption ...

Re: Can human body hair disappear as a result of... clothing?

... vary among individuals of human population introducing more conflicting forces. So this situation becomes quite interesting. If the forces remain active for longer we may end up with the fitter phenotype e.g. hairy males and hairless females. Any further thoughts..? Hrushikesh

Re: Which has a greater impact of evolution, mutations or genet

... asexually mutations are the only source of variability ". That is not true. First of all, horizontal gene transfer is asexual and very active in bacteria. Second, some organisms are capable of asexual recombination (eg. plants). Lastly, you are dismissing effect of epigenetics.
