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 […]

Chloroplast Structure and Function in detail with Labelled Diagram

Chloroplast Structure and Function

The leaves of the trees are colored in different shades of green. This color is imparted due to the presence of various pigments present in the cells of the leaves.  The 3 types of pigments present in plants are chlorophyll, carotenoids, and anthocyanins. Chlorophyll imparts the green color to plants. Plastids are membrane-bound cytoplasmic organelles […]
