2. A change in direction resembling a stair-step in a line, a surface, or the construction of a solid body.

3. To move the foot in walking; to advance or recede by raising and moving one of the feet to another resting place, or by moving both feet in succession.

Re: Increase in free energy in glycolysis

... the magnitude of the free energy is becoming greater). Thus as the chaos increases the free energy continues to increase. The ATP usage in the two steps: hexokinase making glucose-6-phosphate and PFK1 making Fructose-1,6-Bisphosphate is made to overcome the activation energy of the subsequent step. ...

A dilution question about RNA

Hello, I have a basic and probably silly question. I am isolating RNA with TRIzol. I have performed the basic steps and resolve the pellet in 50 uL water. I ve measured the concentration and it was 3313 ng/uL (Around 165 ug). Now my next step is DNase treatment. It says 1 unit ...

Increase in free energy in glycolysis

I'm reading about glycolysis in a general biology textbook. It says that in the first 5 steps the free energy increases with each step. Two of those steps are powered by ATP, but the rest are not. In those other steps, how does the free energy increase? What powers ...

centrifugation of hemocytes

Hello everyone, A simple question, but i'm fed up with this. I work with hemocytes of a invertebrates. Many articles perform centrifugation steps after collecting the hemolymph, whether in eppenddorf, whether directly on a 96-well plate. Theses cells are circulating blood cells but display quite ...

What do you do when talking to creationists?

... of many characteristics are clearly not IC like say the path from fins to wings: fins -> legs -> arms -> wings with lots of little steps in between. In cases where a step is too difficult maybe God steps in? 2. Scientists don't have evidence for macroevolution, only microevolution. ...
