Structure and Functions of Proteins

Introduction Have you ever thought about why athletes or gymnasts are often on a protein-rich diet? It’s because these people expend more energy compared to people who don’t work out. And a diet rich in proteins fuels the body to build muscle, promote quick recovery, boost immunity, replenish glycogen, and burn fat, all of which are important during strenuous workouts.

Structure, Classification, and Functions of Carbohydrates

Introduction Living organisms require biomolecules for several biological processes like energy storage and regulation of their metabolic cycles. Among all, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, lipids, and proteins are the four major biomolecules (or macromolecules) that are mainly involved in these biological processes. The functions of carbohydrates are essential for life in all organisms, from microorganisms to plants and humans. They are

Amino Acids: Building Blocks of Proteins

Introduction and History Amino acids are organic compounds consisting of carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen. They are monomers or building blocks of proteins. Proteins are one of the major biomolecules required for the proper functioning of living organisms. Moreover, they are the first biomolecules that were first recognized for their biological roles in organisms than the other biomolecules including carbohydrates, nucleic

Polysaccharides: Properties, Functions, and Applications

Introduction Polysaccharides are long-chain polymers of monosaccharide units, joined together by glycosidic linkages. They are also known as glycans. They are the most abundant carbohydrates found in food. Carbohydrates are vital macromolecules required for the essential functions of organisms. They are classified into the following three classes depending on two criteria, whether they undergo hydrolysis, and if they do, the

Mutarotation: Definition, Mechanism, and Examples

Introduction The phenomenon of mutarotation was discovered in 1846 while a scientist was learning about the properties of glucose, a carbohydrate. Carbohydrates are the most abundant biological molecule on Earth. They are a vital part of people’s healthy diet and perform functions essential to life. Glucose and fructose are the main sources of energy supplied to the body. Ribose and

Biomolecules: Types and Functions

Introduction The human body is composed of roughly 30 trillion cells that collectively perform the essential functions of life. The cells can perform these life-sustaining tasks with the help of several organic molecules present in them. These organic molecules are referred to as biomolecules. The biomolecules have a wide range of sizes and structures, and they are involved in a

sgRNA construction and design

Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) technology is a rapid, cheap, and efficient tool to edit genomes at a precise location. CRISPR technology has now been reduced to just two components: Endonuclease and g RNA. Endonuclease makes an incision at the target DNA molecule to be edited, and gRNA is a single-stranded synthetic 20 nucleotide sequence complementary to the

Pre-market Approval for Medical Devices

Pre-market Approval for Medical Devices: Introduction US is the largest market for medical devices, worth approximately $156 billion (as of 2017), and is expected to reach $208 billion by 2023. Given these numbers, it’s no surprise that high-risk medical devices must undergo strict regulatory and approval processes. One of them is the pre-market approval (PMA) for medical devices. The pre-market
