What is Chemical Bonding? Basic Mechanism of Bonding

chemical bonding

During the nineteenth century, chemists arranged the then-known elements according to chemical bonding, recognizing that one group (the furthermost right column on the Periodic Table, referred to as the Inert Gases or Noble Gases) tended to occur in elemental form (in other words, not in a molecule with other elements). …

Hydrogen Bonding – Types and its Nature

hydrogen bonding structure

A hydrogen bonding is a special type of dipole-dipole attraction which occurs when a hydrogen atom bonded to a strongly electronegative atom exists in the vicinity of another electronegative atom with a lone pair of electrons. These bonds are generally stronger than ordinary dipole-dipole and dispersion forces, but weaker than …

What is Fidelity of DNA Replication in Normal?

fidelity of DNA Replication in normal

DNA replication is, by far, the most accurate of known enzyme-catalyzed processes. The error rate per base pair per round of replication is about 10-9 to 10-10. The accuracy cannot be explained, however, by the different binding energies between correct and incorrect base pairs (this amounts to only a 100 …

What is the role of Tertiary Structure of Proteins (Basic Guide)

Tertiary structure of Proteins

The tertiary structure of protein definition is the arrangement of amino acid side chains in the protein. Generally, the information for protein structure is contained within the amino acid sequence of the protein itself. This important principle of biochemistry was first determined by the biochemist “Christian Anfinsen” in studies of the …
