Celsius

Celsius

(Science: unit) a measurement of temperature (celsius or Centigrade) that is commonly used in Europe.

normal body temperature is considered to be 37 degrees celsius or 98.6 degrees fahrenheit. Body temperature can vary 1/2 degree Celsius above or below 37 c and still be considered normal. Body temperature varies with many factors including level of activity.

to convert a fahrenheit temperature to celsius use: c = (f-32) x 5/9. To convert a celsius temperature to fahrenheit use: f = (c x 9/5) _ 32

Does micrococcus lysodeikticus thrive in high temperatures ?

I know it's growth temperature is around 26 degrees celsius but it is a really resistant bacteria. I was wondering if anyone knew if it could survive in higher (30-40 degrease) or lower (0-5) temperatures? :D

Re: pcr purification trouble

... use pcr product directly for ligation reaction OR add 0,3ul of ExoI and 0,3ul of CIP, incubate it in a cycler for 30 minutes at 37 degrees of celsius and then 20 minutes at 80 degrees of celsius. Use the purified PCR product directly for a sequencing reaction. If your vector is expression ...

Re: Effect of temp. on cellular respiration

The enzymes in general get more and more active as the temperature increases. This would be true till the temperature reaches up to 45 degree Celsius (in general for humans)... But at 65 degree Celsius most of the intracellular enzymes are denatured. So as the temperature increases, the cellular ...

Above which some enzymes denature and their activity completely drops off. This temperature is variable and is dependent ...
