Characteristic of Organic Compounds - ... Amino acids are linked together in proteins by a special kind of bond, the peptide bond. Also, they are the most important type of macromolecule. The makeup of proteins: Some examples of proteins are amino acids, enzymes, dipedtides, polypeptides and glycine. For example, enzymes are a type of protein that acts as a catalyst to speed up chemical reactions. Also polypeptides are polymers built from the same set of 20 amino acids. The functions of proteins are; structural support, storage, movement, cellular communications, and defense against foreign substances....   [tags: Carbon Atoms, Chemical Compounds]

Anticancer Properties of Piper Betle Leaves Active Compounds - ... Hence, in this study, we will test the effect of both PBL and active compounds combined 5FU on colon cancer cells. Although experiments have demonstrated the chemoprotective effect of PBL; however how it exerts its anticarcinogenic potential is not well understood. We proposed to use proteomic approach to determine the possible mechanism(s) of PBL active compounds in enhancing the anticancer effect of 5-FU. Proteomic approach is able to profile the overall protein expression in colon cancer cells during PBL -5-FU-induced cell death and will effectively reveal the possible mechanism(s) of action....   [tags: HTS assay types,colorectal cancer,PBL]

Modes of Modern English Vocabulary Development - Creation refers to the formation of new words by using the existing materials, namely roots, affixes and other elements. In modern times, this is the most important way of vocabulary expansion. There is a variety of means to produce words. The most productive are affixation, composition and conversion. Let's focus on one of them: composition. According to the research, words produced through composition constitute 28% to 30% of all the new words. It is also called compounding which is a way to join two words to make a new special meaning....   [tags: Linguistics] 821 words

Chemistry Experiment on the Reaction of Different Metals When Exposed to Acid - Before the experiment, I wrote down a prediction. My hypothesis towards the experiment was that magnesium would have a bigger reaction with the acids. The reactivity of an element depends on its ability to gain or loose electrons which are used for bonding. The more reactive an element, the more easily it will combine with others. From this information, I know that magnesium has a stronger ability to gain or loose electrons which makes the metal more reactive.
