  • Creatine Monohydrate Creatine
    1,124 words
    Creatine Monohydrate Creatine is a natural substance found in highest concentration in lean red muscle tissue of animals and humans in the form of creatine phosphate. When muscles are used to lift a weight, or perform any type of work, ATP, (Adenosine Triphosphate) is rapidly broken down to ADP (Adenosine Diphosphate) and energy is released. The amount of ATP stored in the muscle will only fuel a maximum effort such as weight lifting for 10 to 15 seconds. After that the muscle must rely on Creat...
  • G Proteins And Change Into Enzymes
    364 words
    G proteins, named after the fact they bond with guanine nucleotides, are largely responsible for intercellular communications within the human organism. These transmissions regulate such functions as hormone secretion, muscle cont action, and even cognition. These transmissions take place because of chemical reactions between enzymes that bind with the G proteins and change into enzymes that trigger other chemical reactions. These chemical reactions induce cellular changes to occur by increasing...
  • Protein Bands In 15 Ml Protein
    3,733 words
    ABSTRACT Proteins are the macromolecules that are responsible for most of the bodily functions. By investigating an individual protein, one can be able to understand the functions and structure of an organism. Before this can be done, protein has to be separated from cell components. Using the methods of centrifugation and gel electrophoresis, not only a protein can be separated from cellular components but also from other proteins. An experiment was designed to separate protein contained in liv...
  • Protein And Amino Acid
    352 words
    Two Animal Products vs. Two Protein Amino Acid Supplements The Protein and Amino Acid supplement make claims to build lean muscle mass in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise (especially weight training). Protein and Amino Acid supplement companies advocate eating 6-8 small healthy meals a day which allows the body to use food more efficiently throughout the day for increased energy and performance. The theory protein supplements are based on is that the body constantly needs an efficien...
  • 5 Percent Of Its Calories As Protein
    1,310 words
    , I. Story-I am sitting in elementary school. The teacher has brought out a colored chart and is telling us kids how important it is to eat meat, drink our milk, and get lots of protein, I am listening to her and looking at the chart, which makes it all seem so simple. I believe my teacher, because I sense that she believes what she is saying. She is sincere. She is a grown-up. It must be true. Protein, I hear-thats whats important. And you can only get good quality protein from meats, eggs, and...
  • Food Product For Protein
    482 words
    Proteins are a unique compound which contain certain atoms in a one of a kind structure. To start proteins are the building blocks that make animal tissue. Next, proteins are in the organic compound group. This means that a protein compound contains carbon as one of its base atoms. To continue, a protein is not just one structure of atoms but at least 200. These structures individually are known as amino acids. Twenty different kinds of amino acids are known to exist and each kind of protein has...
  • Crystallization With A Few Of Protein
    1,013 words
    For biologists, x-ray crystallography has always been a tricky technology. Harder than getting a good beam was growing large crystals of biological molecules-a task that's been compared to building regular structures from wiggly bits of Jello. Today, synchrotron light from facilities such as Berkeley Lab's Advanced Light Source may make it possible to use protein crystals as small as 50 microns (50 millionths of a meter) in length. The crystals themselves may also become easier to grow, thanks t...
  • Four Basic Levels Of Protein Organization
    838 words
    Protein synthesis is one of the most fundamental biological processes. To start off, a protein is made in a ribosome. There are many cellular mechanisms involved with protein synthesis. Before the process of protein synthesis can be described, a person must know what proteins are made out of. There are four basic levels of protein organization. The first is primary structure, followed by secondary structure, then tertiary structure, and the last level is quaternary structure. Once someone unders...
  • Use Of Antibodies
    544 words
    Matthew PeacheyImmunology 3/4/02 Toolbox #5-Immunoprecipitation and Use of Antibodies in Isolation of Genes One of the most useful discoveries of recent technology is the ability to isolate individual genes from an organism's entire genome and then identify that gene. There are several methods available to achieve this goal, many of which make use of antibodies to identify potions of molecules. For proteins such as cell surface proteins, it is very difficult to purify a protein solution. To make...

    Electrophoresis Separation Of Proteins Cytochrome C, Myoglobin, Hemoglobin, And Serum Albumin By Using Isoelectric Focusing System (Ief) Electrophoresis Separation of Proteins Cytochrome C, Myoglobin, Hemoglobin, and Serum Albumin by Using Isoelectric Focusing System (IEF) Introduction Proteins are composed of amino acids. All amino acids are amphoteric molecules consisting of three types of amino acids: neutral, acidic, and basic. Thus, for any protein there is a characteristic pH, called the i...
  • The Mutant Pabp 2 Protein Need
    2,721 words
    Protein Binding Studies for Expanded Poly-A Repeats and Mutant PABP 2 resulting from Oculopharyngeal Muscular Dystrophy INTRODUCTION: Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy (OPMD) is an inherited neuromuscular genetic disorder. It has an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance (Fried et al. 1975) in that the abnormal gene can be transmitted from only one parent. A child of an affected parent has a 50% chance of being affected. The disorder is found to be more prevalent among French-Canadians and i...
  • Complex II Proteins

    Angela Lucas Biochemistry 3334/16/99 Tull berg, A., Hakansson, G., and H. Race. 1998. A protein tyrosine kinase of chloroplast thylakoid membranes phosphorylated light harvesting complex II proteins. Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications 250: 617-622. As we have studied in just about every system and pathway learned in Biochemistry 333, reversible phosphorylation of biological molecules is a key regulatory mechanism for cell function. Kinases are proteins that transfer a phosphate ...
  • 30 40 Grams Of Protein Per Meal

    Nutrition 101: Back to Basics If you go into any gym in the world and randomly ask 100 people to pinpoint the most important thing for achieving success in bodybuilding and fitness, you'd probably get just as many different answers. Most replies, however, would involve various training programs or styles. As important as training is, nutrition plays an equally large role - your diet is almost always responsible for either success or failure in bodybuilding and virtually any fitness program. Here...
  • System Of Two Hybrid Proteins

    Raj i cells Cell line that grows in suspension derived from patient with Burkitt&'s lymphoma lymphoblast Often referred to as a blast cell. Unlike other usages of the suffix -blast a lymphoblast is a further differentiation of a lymphocyte, T- or B-, occasioned by an antigenic stimulus. The lymphoblast usually develops by enlargement of a lymphocyte, active re-entry to the S phase of the cell cycle, mito genesis and production of much m-RNA and ribosomes. Burkitt's lymphoma Malignant tumour of l...
  • High In Acid Ash Protein

    INTRODUCTION: Osteoporosis is the major public health problem in the United States because the disease costs million lives and dollars. Osteoporosis, which means "porous bones", is a condition of excessive skeletal fragility resulting in bones that break easily. A combination of genetic, dietary, hormonal, age-related, and lifestyle factors all contribute to this condition. Osteoporosis leads to 1.5 million fractures, or breaks, per year, mostly in the hip, spine and wrist, with the cost of trea...
  • Viruses
    333 words
    Are Viruses Alive? By Bo Howes The word virus means "poi-son' in Latin. Viruses are sub micro-sc opic intracellular parasites that consist of either RNA or DNA, and a protective coat of protein. It has caused countless diseases in vari-ous organisms. The term virus was first used in the 1890's to describe agents that caused diseases that were smaller than bacteria. The ex-is tence of viruses was established in 1892, when Russian scientist Dimity I. Ivanov sky discovered microscopic particles lat...
