OK, good point Jessiah

*I read that article on the website, thanks for sharing the info.
*In my studies of molecular epidemiology, I"ve observed this interesting trend of "metabolic dysfunction" due to "ethnicity".

Honestly, at this point in your curriculum, if you cannot know the difference betwixt biology, chemistry, and biochemistry, then you' would be best advised to Change your Major area of study now.

What on Earth is this paper about? You are rambling on and on and on about at least 9 different topics of investigation. I feel that you will have a poorly organized, inadequately researched, and useless bunch of information. I was falling asleep as I read it.

use a slightly acidic pH

to separate those nucleotides. Try using Tris EDTA buffer adjusted to pH = 6.25 as the mobile phase on your agarose gel.

Chromosomal Abnormalities

*Why is it that certain "Ethnic groups" have a predisposition for certain specific genetically based metabolic dysfunctions? For example, Caucasions are more prone to skin cancer, Asians ar more prone to high blood pressure, African ancestry folk are more prone to sickel cell anemia, and Hispanics a...

citric acid

*all the extra citric acid will simply become a part of the Interstitial fluid and be urniated out. There will be no "net increase" in Krebs cycle intermediates.

which came first RNA or DNA?

*This is no longer a topic of debate, consideration,or experimentation amongst the modern research community--mainly because it does not matte which came first. The key Questons these days are: how do we reglate mutation in DNA? How can we inhibit RNA synthesis Reverse Transcriptase? This is mainly ...

Hi Joe, You have inherited a set of alleles from your mom and a set from your dad. For some reason certain alleles are "dominant" over others and yet for some reason certain alleles are equal in strength to others (known as "Co-Dominance"). Here's a simple example to help elucidate this for you: Con...

Replies: 3
Views: 2559

If you want to inactivate the signal transduction pathway in-vivo, you can introduce mutations in the receptor protein that cause it to have a much lower Ka (binding efficiency) to the hormone. Or you can modify the cell membrane with adducts to render the membrane proteins unable to bind the hormon...

bio-energetic molecules

*There are several molecules in the cell that "store" energy in catalytic cycles. The most frequently cited ones are ATP and ADP; however, the molecules that harbor More energy than ATP are called NADH and NADPH. In the Krebs cycles their unique phospho-diester bonds harbor and release more kcals of...
