What two enzymes are involved in DNA replication?

More than two enzymes are involved, but the main ones are DNA Polymerases (Pol III and Pol I in Prokaryotes, Pol α, Pol δ and Pol ε in Eukaryotes).In vitro you can achieve replication with only taq polymerase and two primers.

What is the two kind of metabolism?

Low metabolism and high metabolism.

What are 2 organic compounds that act as enzymes?

Two organic compounds that act as enzymes are maltase and amylase. Amylase is involved in the breakdown of starch into disaccharides and trisaccharides, which are then broken down into glucose by other enzymes. Maltase is involved in the breakdown of the disaccharide maltose, a disaccharide formed when starch is broken down.

What are the two types of metabolism?

Anabolism and catabolism are the two types of metabolism.

What are the two components of metabolism?

Metabolism can be divided into two parts: anabolism and catabolism.

What do macronucleus and micronucleus do?

The macronucleus is the larger of the two nuclei and they help with cell metabolism and protein synthesis. Micronucleus is smaller and involved the reproduction.

In metabolism two basic processes occur Which process is involved in breaking down nutrients?

In metabolism, the catabolic process involves breaking down nutrients. More specifically, the Krebs Cycle breaks down the nutrients.

Can you get drunk after just one or two drinks?

If you seldom drink alcohol and depending on what alcohol you are drinking and your metabolism, you could feel the effects after just one or two drinks. You most likely won't be totally drunk, but your reasoning and logic could be impaired.

Metabolism can be categorized in what phases?

Catabolism and Anabolism are the two phases or Metabolism.

What is the name of the two enzymes that help in the duplication of DNA?

More than two enzymes are involved. However, the main ones are DNA Polymerase I and DNA Polymerase III. DNA Polymerase III adds new nucleotides and DNA Polymerase I removes primers.

Do women have less enzymes in their stomach to break down alcohol?

Yes, they do. Research has shown that the minimal amount of alcohol necessary to produce cirrhosis in the liver in women is two to three times less than in men. Scientists have found that the way the stomach breaks down alcohol before it enters the bloodstream may be a major factor. Enzymes in the stomach act to break down a proportion of the alcohol taken in by a person. This system is designed to prevent an excessive rise in blood alcohol levels. However, these enzymes are less active in women than in men. This means that a greater proportion of alcohol is likely to end up in their bloodstream.

What are the two types of metabolism in the human body?

Two types of metabolism in the human body are anabolic and aerobic metabolism. One requires oxygen (aerobic) and one does not (anabolic).
