Asked in Chemistry, Atoms and Atomic Structure
What evidence suggests that matter is composed of atoms?
Direct method: tunelling microscopy that allow to see individual atoms. Indirect method: the chemical reactions, with their stochiometry. ...
What does the smooth ER do?
Throughout the eucaryotic cell, especially those responsible for the production of hormones and other secretory products, is a vast amount of membrane called the endoplasmic reticulum, or ER for short. The ER membrane is a continuation of the outer nuclear membrane and its function suggests just how complex and organized the eucaryotic cell really is. ...

Why do Mitochondria are the only organelles that contain their own DNA circular and have a double membrane?
The double membrane suggests that they were subjected to phagocytosis, yet not digested. The circular DNA suggests that this organism was a free living prokaryote at one time. Both pieces of evidence suggest that a symbiotic relationship ( or a slave relationship ) was established between two simple organisms. This is called the theory of endosymbiosis. Google Lynn Margulis. ...

suggests that anesthesia occurs when a sufficient number of molecules of an inhalation anesthetic dissolve in the lipid cell membrane ...
Why do people get dermatomyasitis disease?
The cause is largly unknown, however some science suggests that it can be cause by bacterial infections, or viruses. The focus is primarily on treatment of the symptoms and not the cause thereof. ...

What is a characteristic of mitochondria that suggests that they might have evolved from free living bacteria?
The plasma membrane of a mitochondrion, forming the surface of this organelle, is the site of many important steps of cellular respiration. ...
What is the difference between preaching and sermonizing?
"Sermonizing" suggests that you are talking as if you were delivering a sermon when you are not really doing so. "Preaching" includes that meaning but also (and primarily) refers to someone who is actually delivering a sermon. ...
Asked in Microbiology, Cell Biology (cytology)
What is a prokaryotic cell?
A prokaryotic cell is by definition a cell that lacks a membrane-bound nucleus. In addition, they do not have other membrane-bound organellessuch as theendoplasmic reticulum (smooth or rough) orthe Golgi apparatus. The DNA of the cell is free-floating, although recent research suggests the location within the cell is not random. ...

Can you use a deep cycle battery charger to charge a car battery?
They are primarily intended- as the name suggests for Maritime occupations- we are all familiar with the use of Batteries on, for example, Submarines. Run deep indeed. ...
