Glycerol effect on Beta-galactosidase

So I recently performed Lac operon lab in my Biology course. During this we put TMG and the Ecoli into one flask, TMG and Glucose in another, and TMG and Glycerol in yet another. We took various samplings of the flasks at standard intervals from a shaker bath. After we sorted the samples we put them...

Sodium-Potassium Pump Curiousity

I don't need this for a class but rather my own curiosity. I understand the simple mechanics of a trans-membrane Na-K Pump but I am curious about the shift after phosphorylation. More specifically, how it looks during the transfer. Does it sort of close one end and then open up the end of the protei...

HCL Question

The question on my study guide for my 200 level class says: What will HCL do to a monomer of glucose in a disaccaride? My personal understanding (my labs and books don't say it outright) is that adding Hydrochloric Acid to a polysaccaride will create a hydrolysis reaction separating the polymers int...
