You could say they are the same molecule, but a molecule whose function is to change its state and properties very quickly when activated by thrombin. Fibrinogen is a soluble protein - a complex of six protein chains. Thrombin is an enzyme called a protease which very specifically cuts the ends off of two of those protein chains. Once those bits are ...

The protein is called rhodopsin and the bit that gets kinked up is called retinol. Normally when light hits it, it does trans to cis isomerization at the 11th carbon. 'kinks up' is a pretty apt way of describing it. I'm not familiar with the shipped down to the liver part, but I'm guessing that the photo reaction of the retinol with itself or the ...

The more bases there are per codon the more information you can code for. There are only 22 different amino acids, in consequence we need minimum 3 bases per codon. 1 base-codon --> 4^1 = 4 possible codes which are: A / T / C / G 2 base-codon --> 4^2 = 16 possible codes which are: AA / AT / AC / AG / TT / TA / TC / TG / CC / CA / CG / CT / GG / GC / GT ...

Yes, Ethanol can precipitate proteins during a DNA precipitation as well, although Acetone will be more efficient. Usually you do a proteinase K digest or a proteinase K digest followed by a Phenol/Chloroform extraction to avoid this problem. I was usually doing the later, I can post my protocol if you are interested.

A proteinase eg.proteinase K is usually added when extracting dna.

See here. Histones are basic proteins (cationic, high pI) because they are required to interact with polyanionic DNA at physiological pH. Heparin and dextran are polyanions which form insoluble salts with the cationic histones.(Dextran is a polymer of glucose. In dextran sulphate it is derivatised with sulphonate groups creating a polyanionic material.) ...

I think the significant reason for swelling is the lack of absorption of all Whey proteins which you take at once. So there will be edema. I think it cannot be intracelullar (albumins) because Whey proteins apparently are too long to go into cells. So they must they in the extracellular space. They are too long to be drained to the interstitial space too. ...

From how I read your question, you're wondering if there is some technology to somehow isolate oncogenic proteins inside the cell so they don't do harm, is that correct? The answer is somewhat complicated, as it depends on the protein. First, though, you need to understand that cancer is a very complex disease, and cancer is not caused by a single mutation ...
