Bio Research Paper Writing

... This results in the transport of viperin to the mitochondria where viperin interacts with mitochondrial proteins that is a part of pathways that catalyze B-oxidation of fatty acids that generate ATP. Studies on viperin suggest that normal B-oxidation is only affected by viperin with the iron-sulfer ...

Scientific paper on DNA replication & gel electrophoresis

... migrations from the bulk reaction and column-isolated reactions were almost indistinguishable. This suggests that the oriC-loaded replisome can catalyze their formation without the need to recruit additional DNA polymerase or helicase. What I don't understand: 1. Why are the stalled forks about ...

Re: question for evolutionary biologist.

... have been the first genetic molecule. He went on to suggest that RNA, besides acting as a template, might also act as an enzyme and, in so doing, catalyze its own self-replication. The problem now is that, as knowledge has accumulated, his idea has become obsolete. Challenges to this idea have ...
