http://www.iitk.ac.in/gate/gate2012/ Also works. The first site that I submitted should work too, I can access the site myself.

Online Study Partners in CellBio/MolBio/MicroBio/Genetics

Hey, I am looking for study partners here. I'd be studying Mol Bio/Genetics/Cell Bio/Microbio over the next two months for GATE ( http://www.gate.iitm.ac.in ). I'd like to study online, regularly, all of these topics. My idea is to have a daily self study session, maintain an Online Log, and then di...

Re: How ATP works

I think I understand it a little bit better, but, thinking about it again, changing the conformation of a protein requires some sort of power source, still. Unless that's what you meant by stimulus? How would the binding of a cofactor or ATP hydrolysis supply the energy needed for the conformation ...

@Jutter Hey, can you send across some problem sets/assignments like these? I feel they're good to arrange one's thoughts, but I am tired of searching through the net finding for such problems. Tell me if you are here! @JackBean I guess you'd be more aware of such problem sets! Do you have any that y...

I guess you didn't want more possibilities but a way to narrow things down. I'm clueless, but I got a feeling for narrowing down - you need more data about the situation. Either that, or documented information about the things that you already know! I'm saying this because you mentioned cytoskeleton...

Re: Unusual cell division- Identifying mutant protein and genes

Let's try and discuss this problem. I find this interesting, but ain't no expert. I'll tell you what I know. The only instance of multinucleate cells I can think of are fusion cells - which were used to study the cell cycle. Which also reminds me that it is possible the multi nuclei cells might just...

Studying Biochemistry - what should i focus on?

Hi, I am a biotechnology student from India. My course work includes process engineering, pure cellular and molecular biology, biomedical instrumentation, bio informatics and some other related topics in some detail. I am revising my biochemistry now and don't really understand how much of it or wha...

Green Flourescent Protein & Cadherins

Hello. I saw a garland science video of epithelial cells whose cadherins had the GFP so that whenever junctions were formed between the two cells, we could observe the GFP's florescence. What was going on here? How was the GFP fused with the production of cadherins? Is it a simple procedure or does ...

BRCA1 Gene - Breast cancer and non-breast cells

Hello. I came across BRCA1 in my intro to cancer biology class. The BRCA1 gene was discussed and it was mentioned that it is causative (?) for breast cancer. However, it is a tumor suppressor of sorts and is present in all the cells. Then what happens when it comes to other cells? Why does a defect ...
