Classes and Benefits of Peptides

What Are Peptides? The biological significance of proteins was recognized more than two centuries ago. They were considered the primary material required for living organisms. But from the beginning of the 20th century, the significance of protein-like molecules, peptides, became apparent in several life processes.Figure: The illustration of name and…

What Are the Benefits of Genetic Engineering?

Genetic engineering is a technology in molecular biology that uses recombinant DNA technology to manipulate genetic materials. The technology aims to construct customized proteins or modify the working of biological systems, which leads to the creation of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The application of genetic engineering has improved and developed…

Classification and Biological Functions of Lipids

Introduction Lipids are one of the major macromolecules present in our body, and others include nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and proteins. But unlike the other macro biomolecules, lipids are not polymers - they aren’t composed of monomers. They are hydrophobic in nature because of the predominance of hydrocarbon chains (–CH2–CH2–CH2–CH2–) in…

Factors That Affects Enzyme Activity

Enzymes are a group of proteins that catalyze non-spontaneous chemical reactions in any biological system. In an organism, enzymes function as a group of interconnected chemical reactions in a metabolic pathway, fulfilling a specific cellular task. Metabolic pathways are active under normal circumstances and alter their activities in response to…
