What are the concentrations of different ions in cells? Reader Mode Beginning biology students are introduced to the macromolecules of the cell proteins, nucleic acids, lipids and carbohydrates as being the key players in cellular function. What is disturbingly deceptive about this picture is that it makes no reference to the many ion species without which cells could not function at all. Ions have a huge variety of roles in cells.
Biodegradable zein-based films were prepared. Abstract In this study, biodegradable and biocompatible zein films were prepared by casting from alcoholic solutions. The effects of different types and concentrations of alcoholic solutions ethanol and isopropanol on hydrophobicity, mechanical and surface properties of zein during the plasticization process were investigated.
It was demonstrated that at the initial phase, tensile strength of films increased with the increase of the concentration of ethanol and isopropanol solutions, reaching upon the maximum value In addition, the results of water contact angle, water vapor permeability, water absorption and transmittance indicated that the hydrophobicity of zein film prepared by ethanol was substantially higher than that prepared by isopropanol.
Moreover, DSC differential scanning calorimetry and FTIR Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy revealed that the thermability and the secondary structure of zein film were affected by the presence of ethanol and isopropanol, respectively.
In conclusion, the findings of this study may contribute to pragmatically formulate ideal surface morphology and the degree of hydrophobicity of zein based films fulfilling the different requirements from academia and industry.Aim: My aim is to find out how different concentrations of the enzyme pectinase affect the degradation of the substrate pectin, and hence the volume of clarified apple juice produced in a specific duration of time.
Hypothesis: Will different enzyme concentrations have different effects on the yield of clarified apple juice obtained from apple pulp [ ].
Increasing the concentration of NaCl (sodium chloride) will have the biggest decrease in the number of germinations compared to increasing the other salt concentrations. Null Hypothesis: Increasing the salt concentration will have no effect on the germination of seeds.
