All organisms use food molecules, like glucose to produce ATP. The production of ATP occurs during cellular respiration. ATP provides the cells with energy that is necessary to produce oxygen. The seeds/plants are autotrophic organisms, which produce their food from the energy that the light provides them. To release the stored energy within the food molecules, the germinated seeds carry out respiration and the release of carbon dioxide.
Temperature has an effect on both the structure of the catalase itself and the hydrogen bonds it is designed to cleave. As the temperature increases toward the optimum point, hydrogen bonds loosen, making it easier for catalase to act on hydrogen peroxide molecules. If the temperature increases beyond the optimum point, the enzyme denatures, and its structure is disrupted. In humans, the optimum temperature for catalase is 37 degrees CelsiusRole in Living Organisms Although its ability to break down a toxic molecule such as hydrogen peroxide might make catalase seem to be an indispensable commodity, mice engineered to develop without catalase have a normal physical appearance. Some research has indicated that a lack of catalase can lead to the development of type 2 diabetes.
Doriana Spurrell What different frequencies and types of light would prompt the Spinach leaves to go through the process of photosynthesis effectively? Purpose: The purpose of this experiment was to see which of the four lights that range across the light spectrum would properly and most efficiently help the spinach leaf perform photosynthesis. Background Information: Photosynthesis is the process in which plants use light energy to transform into chemical energy. The process of photosynthesis is vital for the survival of most life on Earth. Without photosynthesis plant life would be unable to create its own food and sustain themselves causing them to die.
Having unique characteristics and low-maintenance requirements make good pets out hermit crabs, according to Lianne McLeod, writing for The Spruce. Hermit crabs have small and soft abdomens that they protect by living in empty snail shells. As they grow bigger, they must look for bigger shells, and owners of these pets must progressively look for larger shells. The two main species of hermit crabs found in the US are the Coenobita clypeatus, commonly named as the Caribbean crab, purple pincher crab, land hermit crab, tree crab or soldier crab and the Coenobita compressus or the Ecuadorian crab. Other species raised as pets in other parts of the world include the Australian land hermit crab and the strawberry land hermit crab.
Photosynthesis is the process the energy from sun lights to produce ATP which is used to make sugar such as glucose, sucrose, cellulose, and starch. Photosynthesis involves two different processes, which are light dependent reaction and light independent reaction. Light dependent reaction requires light energy to split water molecules (photolysis) into hydrogen ions (H^+), oxygen (O_2) and electrons to make ATP and the light dependent reaction allows plants to grow and make a waste product (oxygen), energy conversion reactions, convert solar energy to chemical energy. In the light independent reaction stage, H^+ and ATP are used to fix 〖CO〗_2 to make organic molecules. Sugar can be produced by the process of Calvin cycle in the chloroplasts
Photosynthesis and Respiration: Cellular respiration and photosynthesis are the two main processes carry out by most living organisms to attain energy. Whereas photosynthesis is performed by most plants that can make their own food, most animals achieve their energy necessities through cellular respiration. Photosynthesis: Light-dependent Reactions and Light-independent Reactions or dark reactions or Calvin Cycle are the stages of chemical reactions during the process of photosynthesis. Light Reactions: During the light reaction solar energy is transformed into chemical energy. The second stage is when synthesis (Calvin Cycle) uses the energy from the light reaction and change CO2 taken from the atmosphere into sugar.
This ability make the animals blend with their surroundings not only for camouflage but also for communication such as during mating. The pigment cells (chromatophores) are responsible for releasing the pigment into the outer layer of animal’s skin. The pigmented chromatophores with its variety of colors (e.g. yellow, red, orange, brown, black, blue and green) can -when used in combinations- are responsible for the numerous colors which cuttlefish can display. It is claimed that cuttlefish are the fastest color changers in the whole animal kingdom.
Vasoconstriction (constrict of small blood vessels to the digestive tract). Bronchi will be dilated so that the air ways are wide open for hyperventilation. Glucose will be released from the liver to the muscles where it is needed for energy the springbok need for running. Certain involuntary muscles will be dilated while others will be constricted and sugar store in the liver will be released into the blood stream in the form of glucose and transported to the muscles and the conversion of this glucose into glycogen will be
The abdomen is connected to the cephalothorax by the pedicel which is joint like is allows the abdomen to move freely in many direction. The abdomen holds many of the spiders vital organs such as the heart and digestive system. The silk producing gland is also located in the abdomen near its rump where there is a pair
Others can overwhelm the body if applied in only one place, and are often cut into sections and applied to different parts of the body to avoid this, such as nitroglycerin. Many molecules, however, such as insulin, are too large to pass through the skin. Basic components of Transdermal drug delivery systems: 1. Polymer matrix: The mechanism of drug release depends upon the physicochemical properties of the drug and polymer used in the manufacture of the patches(17). These control the release rate of the drug from the patches.
