RNA Interference

Updated on 18-Jan-2023 11:57:45
Introduction Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA) are considered as the most important nucleic acids and this has been confirmed by many biologists. The nucleotide is the basic structural constitution of nucleic acid i.e. DNA and RNA. In RNA interference the small piece of RNA shut down the protein translation by binding mRNA that codes for those proteins. The particular mRNA codes for protein synthesis. RNA interference (RNAi) regulates the post-transcriptional mechanism of genes. In this process, small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) induce the sequence-specific degradation of homologous messenger (mRNA). RNA interference is widely used in research in biology as ... Read More

Introduction The word rigor mortis is made up of two words- ‘Rigor’ means ‘stiffening’ or ‘hardening’ and ‘mortis’ means ‘mortality’. It is a part of the process that takes place after death and can help to determine the time of death. What is Rigor mortis?Rigor mortis is the condition after death where muscles of the body get stiff due to some chemical reaction that occurs in the myofibrils (fibres tend to get shorter). In this stage, single-cell death occurs. The condition in which rigor mortis occurs in the body indicates in what position the body was at the time of ... Read More

Respiratory Quotient

Introduction Respiration is the process of getting oxygen into the body from the outer environment and relieving carbon dioxide from the body to the outer environment. These gases play an important role in physiological processes. The ratio of carbon dioxide released to the oxygen absorbed is called the Respiratory Quotient, which can be abbreviated as RQ. The respiratory quotient can be called as respiratory ratio or respiratory coefficient also. What is a Respiratory Quotient? A respiratory quotient is a logarithmic number used to calculate basal metabolic rate by the ratio of carbon dioxide liberated to oxygen absorbed. $$\mathrm{RQ=CO_{2}\:liberated/O_{2}\:absorbed}$$ With ...

Updated on 18-Jan-2023 11:07:38
Introduction Muscles are made up of elastic tissue. In the human body, more than six hundred muscles are present. Thousands of muscle fibers constitute elastic tissues. Muscle strength depends on the presence of fibers. These muscles work together with the nerve fibers to do all voluntary and involuntary functions of the body. There are three types of muscles: skeletal muscles, striated muscles, and smooth muscles. Muscular dystrophy is the damage and weakening of the muscles. In this tutorial, we will learn about muscular dystrophy in depth. Dystrophy Meaning Dystrophy generally occurs due to malnutrition or diseases. Muscular dystrophy is the ... Read More

Muscle Contraction Proteins

Introduction Proteins are very complex substances that are present in every living organism. Proteins have high nutritional values which play a direct role in the chemical process which is necessary for life. For example, muscles, for instance, contain about 30% protein, the liver 20 to 30%, and red blood cells 30%. Proteins are the most important element of the striated skeleton muscle. Hair, bone, organs, and tissues contain a higher percentage of protein. What are the Muscle Proteins? The movement of the human body is dependent on the skeletal muscles, that are connected to the bones. Proteins are the fundamental ... Read More

Updated on 10-Oct-2022 13:47:56
To do:  We have to define regular polygon and state the name of a regular polygon of(i) 3 sides(ii) 4 sides(iii) 6 sides.Solution:A polygon is a closed plane or two-dimensional figure whose sides are straight line segments.Regular polygon:A regular polygon is a polygon that has equal sides and equal angles.(i) A regular polygon of 3 sides is called an equilateral triangle.(ii) A regular polygon of 4 sides is called a square.(iii) A regular polygon of 6 sides is called regular hexagon.

How many diagonals does each of the following have?
(a) A convex quadrilateral
(b) A regular hexagon
(c) A triangle.

Updated on 10-Oct-2022 13:47:54
To do:  We have to find the number of diagonals each of the below shapes have.(a) A convex quadrilateral(b) A regular hexagon(c) A triangle.Solution:(a) A convex quadrilateral is shown below.From the above figure, we can observe that,A convex quadrilateral has two diagonals.(b) A regular hexagon is shown below.From the above figure, we can observe that,A regular hexagon has nine diagonals.(c) A triangle is shown below.From the above figure, we can observe that,A triangle has no diagonals.

Given here are some figures.

Classify each of them on the basis of the following.
(a) Simple curve
(b) Simple closed curve
(c) Polygon
(d) Convex polygon
(e) Concave polygon."
