The first ever image of a hydrogen bond
Hydrogen bonds are at the very core ... on carefully studying and controlling the structure of molecules through complex organic reactions. Scientists could also learn more about the way biochemical reactions function on a molecular scale.
What Are the Functions of Coenzyme A in Cellular Respiration?
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD, also carries away hydrogen in the process of oxidation, becoming NADH. The remaining carbon atoms bond with coenzyme A, creating acetyl CoA. When oxygen is present, cellular respiration continues after glycolysis ...
New technology provides a deep view into protein structures
Proteins consist of a sequence of amino acids and have important physiological functions ... into a stable three-dimensional structure. In part, the spatial arrangement is determined by a network of hydrogen bonds. However so far it was unclear to what ...
Francis Crick: Co-Discoverer of DNA's Double Helix
Francis Crick was a pioneer molecular biologist who is credited, along with James Watson and Maurice Wilkins, with discovering the double helix structure of the DNA molecule ... If the weak hydrogen bonds holding the base pair “rungs” of the ladder ...
On the Logic Behind God - Part I
Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA ... function. These base pairs must then be bound together in a long biopolymer strand composed of several disparate components (Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen, Carbon and Phosphorus) all of which must be bound together by a bonding ...
