Anatomy of the Root of both Dicot and Monocot Plants

root-anatomy-morphology

The roots are a very important organ in plants. They develop from radicle and help in absorption of water and minerals from the soil that are required for the plant life. The roots fix the plant to the ground and provide support to the part of the plant above-ground. In few plants like rhizomes, roots […]

RNA Translation | The 3 Step Process of Protein synthesis

rna transcription

The translation is a process by which ribosomes present in the cytoplasm (on  endoplasmic reticulum) synthesize the proteins from an mRNA. The RNA Translation occurs by 3 steps like 1.Initiation 2. Elongation 3. Termination. A protein is a polypeptide that has a sequence of the amino acids coded by the mRNA. There are different types […]

DNA Transcription |3 Step Process in mRNA formation

dna transcription

Transcription means a written version of something. So, a DNA transcription means formation of a copy of DNA strand. “The process by which the DNA sequence is read and the complementary RNA molecule is formed is called transcription.” Thus the DNA codes for RNA strand which will then code for the protein. Before transcription can […]

Cell Membrane Transport | 6 Types with Examples

facilitated diffusion

Cell membrane is a delicate organ of the cell which regulates movement of substances into and outside the cell. The cell membrane transport occurs in two major ways like 1. Passive transport Passive diffusion Facilitated diffusion Osmosis. 2. Active transport. Sodium potassium pump Bulk transport (phagocytosis and pinocytosis) Cell Membrane Transport The structure of cell […]

Electrons in Carbon |Their Valency and Configuration.

Electrons in carbon

Carbon belong to the 2nd period of the periodic table. It is located in ‘P’ block. Thus the outermost electrons of the atom are present in the ‘P’ orbital. It can form bonds with itself which is termed as concatenation. Electrons in carbon Carbon is present in group 14 of the periodic table. Carbon has […]

Leaf anatomy | Both Internal and External with Labelled Diagram

Leaf anatomy

Leaves are the main photosynthetic organs of the plant. Anatomy of leaf is the detailed study of internal structure of a leaf, usually revealed by its dissection. Leaves are responsible for converting sunlight and carbon dioxide into glucose, which is used to provide energy to the plant. Leaves are classified into mainly two types based […]

Nucleic Acid Chemistry and Structure in Detail

DNA nucleic acid

Nucleic acids are molecules of high molecular weight formed by thousands of nucleotides. Nucleic acids are of two types- deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA). The primary function of the nucleic acids is to store and transmit genetic information from one generation to another. Nucleic acids can be digested by lysosomic enzymes. Nucleic Acid […]

DNA Replication |Step by Step Process and Enzymes involved

DNA replication

Reproduction is an important process for propagation of living organism.  To facilitate reproduction the genetic material in the cell of the organism needs to be multiplied so that the genetic characters can be passed off into the offspring. The genetic material of most organisms is usually DNA while RNA acts as a messenger. Structure The […]

Herbivores vs Carnivores | Important Differences in 15 Points

Herbivores vs Carnivores

Herbivores are the animals which rely on vegetation for food. While carnivores depend on other animals for their food needs. However there are many other variations. Herbivores vs Carnivores Sl.No Characteristics Herbivores Carnivores 1 Nomenclature The term ‘herbivores’ comes from the Latin word ‘herba’ means green plants. Herbivores are plant eaters The term carnivores come […]
