    CELL WALL AND EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX The extracellular matrix is a network of non living tissues that support the structure of the cell, similar to the cell wall in plants. It is the extracellular matrix that form the framework that ultimately determines the architectural structure of plants and animals (textbook). Due to its dynamic nature, the ECM has multiple functions which include cell adhesion, communication between cell, and Plant and animal cells secrete macromolecules that form the extracellular

    Tuberculosis Tuberculosis is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.TB.), has a unique cell wall, making it difficult to kill and stain. Three matjor components compose the cell wall: mycolic acids, cord factor, and Wax-D. M.TB. is also hard to culture and can only thrive in the body. It is an obligate aerobe and an acid-fast bacteria. Tuberculosis can be diagnosed through the Mantoux test and by staining methods such as the Ziel-Neelsen method. Chest x-rays are also used in the diagnosis process

    Investigating Osmosis in Potato Chips Planning Introduction: the definition of osmosis is the movement of water particles from a weaker solution to a stronger solution through a partially permeable membrane. Aim of investigation: I am trying to find out how external concentration of liquid surrounding a potato chip affects it - does it increase or decrease in mass etc. Method, diagram and equipment: Diagram of experiment Equipment · 5 Boiling tubes · weighing scales

    detection, antibiotics have been diversified into many different forms and classes which are arranged by mode of action. Glycopeptides are a class of antibiotics which are composed of glycolsylated cyclic or polycyclic nonribosomal peptides that inhibit cell wall synthesis in susceptible bacteria (2). However, it was soon discovered that the use of these antibiotic drugs would lead to antibiotic resistance. This paper will discuss the history, function, and resistance associated with vancomycin, a glycopeptide

    The continuous depletion of fossil fuel resources and their increased demand has changed the outlook from ancient resources of fuel to new resources especially biomasses of plant origin. Plant biomass is a promising raw material for fuel generation to sustain fuel requirements in the modern age. Basically biofuel these days can be divided into first generation and second generation depending upon the type of biomass used. Biofuel derived from sugars, oils, cereals, sugarcane and starch are categorised

It also plays a part in helping cells keep their shape. Cell walls, along with cellulose, provide support for plants so that they can grow tall while maintaining their shape. The size of the plant will determine the amount of cellulose it will need, but all plants require some

    and adhesion refers to the adhesive forces that make water molecules attract and stick to other substances (USGS, n.d.). In addition, capillary action occurs because the cohesive forces between the water molecules are weaker than the adhesion to the walls of the plant tissue, which pulls water upwards in the xylem. The xylem is the vascular tissue found in the stem that is responsible for the transport of water from the roots of the plant up through the stem and in to the leaves. (Michigan State University

    systems work together to allow the whole plant to grow, develop, and function. Vascular plants would not be nearly as successful as they are without the anatomy of plant stomatal leaf cells and vascular cells. Stomatal leaf cells work in conjunction with parenchymal cells to encourage gas exchange. Vascular cells are comprised of the xylem and phloem which work to transport water and nutrients through the plant. Vascular plants also function by interacting with nitrogen-fixing bacteria that is present

    effects on Plant & Animal Cells In order to understand the concept of the three solutions; hypertonic, hypotonic, and isotonic, used in the experiment one must learn to understand the concept of how and why molecules move by processes of osmosis. As conducted, this hands-on experiment will help you examine water molecule movement when exposing the plant cell that make up the potato to be either hypertonic or hypotonic solutions. Although, plant cells have rigid cell walls external to the plasma membrane
