Creating a Robot to Tie a Knot with Lego Mindstorm - Abstract The point of building this robot was to have it successfully complete and tie a knot.

It in itself has a profound effect on the societies’ spiritual experiences; and just like religion can respectfully be considered a form of spirituality for a modern society, as exemplified in Robinson’s movie ‘Field of Dreams’....   [tags: Movies Film] 1192 words

American English - The question of whether or not English should be an official language has been a controversial topic since our country was founded. The English language is a tie that helps combine the many pieces of our society together. Our nation should not acclaim bilingualism, but should enfold English as the national language spoken in the United States, to secure the future unity of our nation. The United States is a nation composed of many immigrants from all around the world. We are a country of many cultural and racial ethnic groups that are constantly reacting to shape the American culture....   [tags: Languages] 542 words

Lace Up Your Shoes - Quick. Look at your shoes. If your shoes have laces, they might be tied wrong. In fact, about 50% of Americans tie their shoes the wrong way, that is, they use the wrong knot when tying their shoes. If your laces come undone, or your bows are twisted, or you double knot your shoes to prevent them from coming untied, then chances are, you tie your shoes the wrong way. About two years ago I took up running. I loved my new sport and entered several running events and races mostly 5K’s.

Genetically Modifying for Smarter Living Things - ... PKC then phosphorylates adenylyl cyclase, which in turn, activates cyclic-AMP (cAMP). cAMP binds to protein kinase A (PKA), breaking it into its catalytic and regulatory subunits. The catalytic subunits go on to activate the transcription factor CREB, which enters the nucleus, binds to DNA, and initiates the transcription of genes coding for synaptic growth proteins and additional AMPA receptors. The production of these proteins helps to establish long-lasting changes in synaptic transmission that ultimately result in learning (Purves et al., 2012)....   [tags: genetic engineering] 2657 words

How the Operon Works - How the Operon Works The operon is a set of coding regions of DNA clustered together that includes structural genes and it is under the control of a single regulatory region. The operator regulates transcription, which is a repressor protein. When the operator binds to a segment of the regulatory region, transcription is shut down. E.

Cell Membrane/ Electron Transport Chain / Biochemical Pathway - 1. The cell membrane structure is vital to the life of the cell. The cell membrane is shaped as having a phosphate head at the very outer surface, and two fatty acid tails hanging from it. The membrane is double, so at the tip of the fatty acid tails, there are two more fatty acid tails attached to another phosphate head. This is what it looks like: The reason the cell membrane is shaped like this is mainly to control the water flow in and out of the cell. Water is very important to the cell: if too much water enters the cell, the cell will explode, and if too much water leaves the cell, the cell will shrivel up and die....   [tags: essays research papers] 674 words

Role in Inducing and Maintaining the Pluripotency of Mice Embryonic Stem Cells - Several members of the zinc finger family of proteins are key components in the transcriptional network maintaining pluripotency in embryonic stem cells. The mouse zinc finger protein 322a (Zfp322a) is expressed in embryonic stem cells and the ICM. Thus Ma et al. 2014 hypothesized that Zfp322a functions as a transcription factor in mice. Ma et al. (2014) discovered that Zfp322a is an irreplaceable transcription factor which enhances the reprogramming ability of OKSM (Oct4,  Klf4, Sox2, and c-Myc) and can replace Sox2 in OKSM in the generation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs)....   [tags: zinc finger, mouse stem cells ]

Determination of Direct Binding between FMRP and Cyclin E - ... used a loss of function mutant of FMRP called dFmr1 to implicate FMRP in regulating Cyclin E levels31. We therefore hypothesize that repeating the BiFC experiment with dFmr1 instead of FMRP should fail to produce fluorescence. If fluorescence in the BiFC experiments performed with FMRP and Cyclin show that the two proteins do interact, repeating the BiFC experiment with dFmr1 and Cyclin E will serve to confirm this result. Loss of fluorescence in the dFmr1 experiment will explain the observation of elevated Cyclin E levels in cells expressing dFmr1 as a result of FMRP losing its ability to bind to Cyclin E....   [tags: protein regulation] 2193 words

Why are most Enzymes made of Proteins and not other Macromolecules? - Enzymes are biological catalysts that increase the rate of chemical reactions within the cells without any change at the end (Palmer, 1991). In the absence of enzymes, most biological process might not occur. The purpose of an enzyme is to allow the cell carry out its functions in time. As the structure of most biological molecules play a major role in their function, the three dimensional structure of an enzyme is responsible for its catalytic activities.

Levonorgestrel inhibits secretion of GnRH, LH and FSH through negative feedback to hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. Levonorgestrel inhibits secretion of LH and FSH from anterior pituitary and these indirectly causes a delay in follicle development. Decreased level of LH also lead to delay or inhibition of LH surge, which then inhibits ovulation. According to Danielsson (2010), when LNG was administrated at two to three days before LH surge, the LH peak was inhibited or delayed....   [tags: contraceptive, follicle, ovulation] 984 words

The Use of Solid Lipid Nanoparticles - Introduction Proteins accumulate in the nucleus to signal the specific entry of molecules through nuclear pore complex (NPC) [1-3]. This mechanism was observed first in nucleoplasmin, an acidic protein that binds histones H2A and H2B during nucleosome assembly[4-8]. In vertebrates Nuclear pore complex weighs 125Mda in mass and contains 50-100 polypeptides. Thus, for macromolecules to cross the NPC, a signal mediated transport mechanism is required. Although several pathways exist for nuclear transport, classical nuclear localization signals (NLSs) that contain one or more clusters of basic amino acids are well known and characterized [9]....   [tags: Gene, Molecules, Chemistry] 2339 words
