    is caused by recurring instances in which patients have no sense of control over the outcome. The problem is, is there a biochemical explanation for this "runner's high," or is it a purely psychological event (although one can also say psychology is biochemical)? Exercise addiction, similar to substance addiction, seems to suggest that jogger's euphoria could be biochemical. There have been accounts of runners who experience withdrawal symptoms when not exercising - such as edginess, anxiety, and

  • Regulation in Eukaryotic Cells

    754 Words  | 2 Pages

    Gene expression is the ability of a gene to produce a biologically active protein. This process is regulated by the cells of an organism, it is very important to the survival of organisms at all levels. This is much more complex in eukaryotes than in prokaryotes. A major difference is the presence in eukaryotes of a nuclear membrane, which prevents the simultaneous transcription and translation that occurs in prokaryotes. Initiation of protein transcription is started by RNA polymerase. The activity

Adolphs research conveys that biochemical and emotional reactions are the two stages of fear. The biochemical reaction is universal, consisting of physical aspects such as increased heart rate, high adrenaline levels, and sweating. This response mechanism is known as the “fight or flight” system, in which the body prepares

    In today's medicine, correctly and quickly identifying a patient's illness is essential for proper treatment. In order to execute this, biochemical tests of various magnitudes are used to identify what a patient may be infected with. In our lab, we received an unknown sample of urine. After several biochemical tests, we determined our unknown specimen to be Enterobacter aerogenes. This particular bacterium is gram-negative, with rod shaped morphology. In order to determine whether our specimen

  • Cereals And Germination: A Biochemical Process

    1699 Words  | 4 Pages

    Cereals, millets and legumes are generally pre-processed by fermentation, germination (malting), cooking, milling and roasting to enhance their functional and nutritional values. Germination/sprouting/malting is a biochemical process which involves transition of a seed from dormant state to vital active state. The prime objective of this traditional process is to promote the development of hydrolytic enzymes that are not active in raw seeds (Dewar et al., 1997). Malting is a complex process that

  • An Unknown Microorganism Using Biochemical Tests
