Define carbohydrate metabolism

carbohydrate metabolism

Know in one minute about carbohydrate metabolism Carbohydrate metabolism is a process that degrades glucose into simpler compounds and produces energy. This energy is used in several biosynthesis processes. These are the following major pathway of glucose metabolism- Glycolysis TCA cycle or Krebs cycle Glycogenesis Glycogenolysis Gluconeogenesis Pentose phosphate pathway Uronic acid pathway Introduction Carbohydrate … Read more

Primary metabolites vs secondary metabolites

Primary metabolites vs secondary metabolites

Primary metabolites Primary metabolites like carbohydrates, amino acids, peptides, and proteins can be found in all plants. They are responsible for basic physiological functions. Are indispensable for the life of each plant. In short, the primary metabolites are the building blocks of the body of the plants. The following article is about primary metabolites and … Read more

Regulation of Glycolysis

Regulation of Glycolysis

Know in one minute about the Regulation of Glycolysis Glycolysis is a control metabolic pathway. It is a sequenced reaction converting glucose to pyruvate or lactate. And regulation of glycolysis is required to balance the glucose level in cells. The three key enzymes are involved in glycolysis regulation. Hexokinase Phosphofructokinase Pyruvate kinase This process is … Read more

Succinate dehydrogenase

Succinate dehydrogenase

Know in one minute about Succinate dehydrogenase Succinate dehydrogenase is a complex structure enzyme, found in the inner membrane of mitochondria. It is the only membrane-bound enzyme of the Krebs cycle. It is contained with FAD. Succinate dehydrogenase consists of four subunits. SDH ‘A’, SDH ‘B’, SDH ‘C’, and SDH ‘D’ are the four subunits … Read more

Where do light-dependent reactions occur?

Where do light dependent reactions occur

Where do light-dependent reactions occur? The light reactions occur in the grana or thylakoid membrane of chloroplast and Involve processes that resemble mitochondrial electron Transport and oxidative phosphorylation. In photosynthetic prokaryotes, which lack Chloroplasts, the light reactions take place in the cell’s plasma membrane or in chromatophores. The photosynthesis process takes place in the chloroplast. … Read more

What are the products of light dependent reactions?

Products of light dependent reactions

What are the products of light-dependent reactions? NADPH+H and ATP are products of light-dependent reactions. This energy is used in dark reactions to produce carbohydrates. All photosynthetic animals used NADP+ H as a reducing factor.  In light-dependent reactions, light energy is converted into chemical energy. Chlorophyll and accessory pigments absorb sunlight as photons and produce … Read more

What are lab grown diamonds?

what are lab grown diamonds

What are lab grown diamonds: Know in one minute Lab-grown diamonds are diamonds that are produced in a laboratory and possess the same physical, chemical, and optical characteristics as natural diamonds. Lab grown diamonds are created using two primary methods: High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) and Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD). One of the main advantages … Read more

What is serial dilution method? And how to calculate?

serial dilution method

Introduction Serial dilution is a microbiological process where a substance is stepwise diluted in a solution. This serial dilution method is a technological method that is used in the isolation of microorganisms. There are two types of dilution. Simple dilution Serial dilution. Below is a discussion of what the serial dilution method is and how … Read more
