Research and answer the following questions: What are the different forms (i.e., monomers, polymers) of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins? What macromolecules do each of the biochemical tests check for? What would an abundance or deficiency of one of the macromolecules cause to the human body? This assignment should be 2–3 double-spaced pages in APA (7th ed.) format and have at least one outside resource. Be sure to cite your resources. Due

This assignment will allow students to bring together everything they have learn

This assignment will allow students to bring together everything they have learned about protein composition, folding, and function to analyze how a well-characterized enzyme, carbonic anhydrase, functions within the human body. Write a 2,500- to 3,000-word essay analyzing the composition, folding, and mechanism of action of the enzyme carbonic anhydrase in the human body. Use current research literature (reference a minimum of 12-15 peer-reviewed journal articles) to examine this enzyme's functions, its genetics, and expression(s) of carbonic anhydrase in the…

For today’s lab we are going to work with the Molecular Evolutionary Genetic Analysis program (https://www.megasoftware.net/home) to examine the phylogentic relationship of the cytochrome oxidase I (COI) gene in several ants. These 10 ants were collected by amateur entomolgists in south Florida, five were collected from one location (ants 1-5) and five were collected from another location (6-10). The DNA was extracted from all of these ants and the COI gene was amplified and sequenced in order to compare the…

Discuss the reason why salt, when it dissolves the ions separate. Why does the water molecules cluster around each of them in hydration shells?  Explain how the shell of these are different ( Ion-dipole forces and hydrogen bonding occurs). Give an example of a slat that does this.  Must post (1) substantial initial post with a minimum of 250 words. All posts and replies must contain at least (2) professional references, one may be the course textbook, properly cited in…
