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). It was later determined that … Read moreWhat is Chemical Bonding? Basic Mechanism of Bonding

Nucleic Acid Structures: Basic structures of Nucleosides, Nucleotides

Nucleic Acids Structures

In Nucleic acid structures, there are two types of nucleic acid. They are DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid) are polymers of nucleotides linked in a chain through phosphodiester bonds. In biological systems, they serve as information-carrying molecules or, in the case of some RNA molecules, catalysts. This brief review will focus on aspects of the … Read moreNucleic Acid Structures: Basic structures of Nucleosides, Nucleotides

Metabolism of Lipids in Humans (Short Guide)

Metabolism of Lipids in Humans

The major aspects of the metabolism of lipids are involved with Fatty Acid Oxidation to produce energy or the synthesis of lipids which is called Lipogenesis. Lipid metabolism is closely connected to the metabolism of carbohydrates which may be converted to fats. This can be seen in the diagram on the left. The metabolism of … Read moreMetabolism of Lipids in Humans (Short Guide)

VITAMINS: What are Vitamins and its sources (Basic Guide)

Vitamins - LifeScience

In developed countries, vitamin deficiencies result mainly from poverty, food fads, drugs, or alcoholism. Vitamin toxicity (hypervitaminosis) usually results from taking mega doses of Vitamin A, D, B6, or niacin. Vitamins may be fat soluble (vitamins A, D, E, and K) and water-soluble (B and C Vitamins). The B vitamins include biotin, folate, niacin, pantothenic … Read moreVITAMINS: What are Vitamins and its sources (Basic Guide)

Bioenergetics : Study of Free Energy Transformation and its changes

basics of bioenergetics - Free energy transformation

Thermodynamics is the branch of physical chemistry that deals with the energy changes and Biochemical thermodynamics (or biochemical energetics or bioenergetics asit is also called) is the field of biochemistry concerned with the energy transformation and use of energy by living cells (Energy transformation). The chemical reactions occurring in living beings (or biochemical reactions) are … Read moreBioenergetics : Study of Free Energy Transformation and its changes
