Tissues Derived From Embryonic Germ Layers - Germinal epithelium known as Germ Layer is a group of cells, formed during animal embryogenesis. Few primitive animals’ tissues are derived from two germ layers, the endoderm and ectoderm; while most animals are derived from three germ layers, the ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm. Germ layers are known as the primary layers of cells in an embryo of an animal. As the embryo develops, the cells differentiate to form the various body tissues. In 1817, Caspar Friedrich Wolff was the first to observe the early organization in embryo in leaf-layers, while studying chick embryos, three primordial germ layers were discovered by Christian Pander....   [tags: Anatomy]

Animal Testing Is Wrong - Animal testing has been around since the third and fourth centuries BC, when it was performed by Greek philosopher-physicians. However, it is unknown when people began to question this process. In today’s society, the idea of testing products on animals has become more and more controversial with numerous groups being created and becoming even more vocal. While people will decide for themselves where they stand in this argument, I would hope that most would agree that animal abuse is wrong. So, if animal abuse is wrong and animal testing can be, and usually is, much more painful and severe than animal abuse; why can’t people agree on the subject of animal testing....   [tags: anatomy, greek philosopher]

No Smell, No Taste - When a person has a cold, the food that they eat most likely does not have a taste. Most may think that it is a person’s taste buds that are providing the tongue with flavor, but it is really the nose. Seventy-five percent of what we taste from food comes from one’s sense of smell. From the sweet flavor of strawberries to the spicy taste of salsa, the tongue itself actually tastes only twenty-five percent of it. The average person can distinguish between 4,000 to 10,000 various odor molecules. Although there is not much known about the nasal cavity, one thing is certain: Little can be tasted without a sense of smell....   [tags: Anatomy] 514 words

Esslin implicitly assumes that drama is the most elite of the artistic genres when he directly declares the purpose of his book, which is to answer the question "why should those concerned with art resort to drama rather than any other form of communication?" Esslin then immediately poses another question that he seems to take as a prerequisite for the first question: "What is the underlying, basic nature of dramatic form and what is it that drama can express better than any other form of communication?"

DNA Replication and Heterochromatin - Heterochromatin is a tightly packed DNA region where genes in such regions are usually not transcribed. Numerous transposable elements (TEs) and repetitive DNA are found in heterochromatic regions. As they can transpose along the genome and disrupt gene functions, it is essential to repress such TEs and DNA repeats (Lippman et al., 2004). Heterochromatin is able to maintain internucleosomal interactions as well as chromatin fiber interactions between cis-elements. It can be passed on to subsequent generations and can control gene expressions by inhibiting transcription epigenetically, a process known as silencing....   [tags: anatomy, heterochromatin]
