The problem is that for most sequencing operations you nowadays still need more than one cell - even though this will change soon. Accordingly, you have to sample cells from a tissue which often, if not usually, contains more than one cell type, see e.g. this picture from a lung tissue from the Wikipedia article on tissues linked above: It is not ...

There are optimal temperature, pressure and substrate concentration for each biochemical process. The optimal temperature and pressure for two or more (but not all) processes may overlap. So there is no SINGLE temperature or pressur where ALL of them will be at their maximum. Please note, by mentioning "cellular processes" I meant all the biochemical(e.g ...

There are two parts to answer this question. "How does my body know when to pee? Do diuretics affect that, or my hydration?" Does wanting to pee imply dehydration? In summary: Not necessarily. Your body might have plenty of water, but the bladder is full. Alternatively your body might be dehydrated, but the caffeine and normal body functions have ...

The missing science to the question is the failure to realize that water inside a cell is bound to hydrophilic proteins which form an exclusion zone. This EZ is well described in the literature by Pollack. The EZ carries a strong net negative charge and it excludes protons. This has also been confirmed by numerous researchers across the world. The ...

A chromosome is simply a length or segment of DNA. Bacteria have few structural proteins on their DNA, and they have one circular chromosome. In humans, before DNA replication, the nucleus contains 46 strands of DNA, i.e. chromosomes (22 chromosomes in two copies and usually two X or one X and one Y for males and females, respectively). All chromosomes are ...

According to David H. Vroon and Zafar Israili aminotransferases (transaminases) are widely distributed among tissues, and are found in both cytoplasm and mitochondria, although this may vary between different aminotransferases: Aminotransferases catalyze the redistribution of nitrogen between amino acids and corresponding oxoacids participating in both ...

The oxidative deamination takes place inside the mitochondria, because the glutamate dehydrogenase is localized in the mitochondria. About the transamination, I'm not sure if it occur inside the mitochondria or in the cytoplasm. The information about the oxidative damination and the enzyme could be found at this link: http://www.bioinfo.org.cn/book/...
