Introduction of Enzyme : Characteristics & Example !!

ENZYME Enzyme, in Greek means in living. (En=in, Zyme=living). Coined by Wilhelm Kunhe, 1976. DEFINITION An enzyme is a protein molecule that is a biological catalyst that catalyzes chemical reaction. CHARACTERISTICS OF ENZYME Speed up chemical reaction. Enzymes are required in minute amounts. They are highly specific in their action. Affected by temperature. They are […]

Introduction & Process of Spermatogenesis & Oogenesis !!

SPERMATOGENESIS Process of producing spermatozoa from spermatogonial stem cells by the way of mitosis & meiosis. Spermatogonia ———- primary spermatocyte ———– secondary spermatocyte ———- spermatid ———- spermatozoa.   LOCATION In mammals spermatogenesis occurs in the seminiferous tubules of the male testes. TIME Spermatogenesis continues young (13-14 yr) to old man (60-65 yr age). PROCESS Spermatogenesis […]

Introduction Of Human Reproductive System & Gametogenesis !!

REPRODUCTIVE PHYSIOLOGY Sexual reproduction is a process in which two organism produce offspring through gamets. The physical maturity of reproduction and the capacity for human reproduction begin during puberty. Hypothalamus produces hormones during puberty. These hormones stimulate gonads to produce testosterone for male, estrogen and progesterone for female. MALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM Testis. Scrotum. Penis. Sperm […]

The Process & The Product Of Glycolysis In Cytoplasm !!

GLYCOLYSIS Glycolysis is the first stage of cellular respiration. It is a process of breakdown of glucose into pyruvic acid. Scientist Embden, Meyerhof, & Parnas described different steps of glycolysis. So glycolysis also called EMP pathway. PLACE OF GLYCOLYSIS Glycolysis occurs in cytoplasm. SUBSTRATE Glucose REQUIREMENTS One molecule of glucose. 2ATP. 4ADP. 2NAD. Inorganic phosphate. […]

Introduction of Cellular Respiration & It’s Significance !!

RESPIRATION Respiration is the reverse process of photosynthesis. In the process of respiration it requires the products of photosynthesis and similarly photosynthesis requires the products of respiration. DEFINITION Respiration is the process where energy released from the breakdown of food particles (glucose). PLACE OF CELLULAR RESPIRATION Cellular respiration is a chemical process which happens in […]
