First-order reaction

First-order reaction

a reaction the rate of which is proportional to the concentration of the single substance undergoing change; radioactive decay is a first-order process, defined by the equation -(dN/dt)=kN, where N is the number of atoms subject to decay (reaction), t is time, and k is the first-order decay (reaction) constant, i.e., the fraction of all atoms decaying per unit of time.

See: decay constant, order.

Re: An interesting PCR smearing...I dont know what to do :(

... well ( a single bright band ) but the other two exon amplification is not coming properly.and this has occured recently. ( even though the PCR reaction was standardized earlier ) I have used same reagents , pipettes , PCR machine , reconstituted new primers for amplifying all 3 exons . Interestingly ...

Re: Transpiration and Photosynthesis.

Try to consider the light and dark reaction. A plant it active during the day and photosynthsise and in the process release excess H2O contents to the atmosphere (transpiration). So the phenomenom are complimentary.

Help: Confused with primers in a PCR of a vector?

... E. coli cells. We looked for positive clones via blue/white screening and isolated/purified the respective plasmid. Then, we carried out a PCR reaction of the pBS-gene (our clone). This PCR reaction is something I do not really understand. We used the pBS-gene as our template. We carried out ...
