I know that Cellulase enzymes that break down cellulose and are involved in cell wall breakdown in higher plants, especially during abscission. Produced in large amounts by certain fungi and bacteria.
degradation of cellulose microfibrils requires the concerted action of several cellulases.

I also agree with Chris4...this is a very weird question....velocity is the measurement of the rate and direction of change in the position of an object....Try to paraphrase your question...:)

Meiosis is a special type of cell division necessary for sexual reproduction. In animals, meiosis produces gametes (sperm and egg cells), whilst in other organisms, such as fungi, it generates spores. Whilst the process of meiosis bears a number of similarities with the the 'life-cycle' cell divisio...

Photosynthesis was producing oxygen both before and after the GOE. The difference was that before the GOE, organic matter and dissolved iron chemically captured any free oxygen. The GOE was the point when these minerals became saturated and could not capture any more oxygen. The excess free oxygen s...

Enzymes are bilogical or organic catalysts make up of protein in nature. They catalyse the many biochemical processes occuring in the living cell over a narrow temperature range. They alter the rate of chemical reactions without themselves being reacted chemically changed at the end of the reaction....

sugar is food for yeast. And it encourages them to produce carbon dioxide.

So sugar would encourage the yeast ferment faster, thus producing more carbon dioxide.

Hi Everybody. This information was just posted the other day by eclipz. It was added to by a few others, but there is not much to say about it and it is now disappearing from the first page, and I think it should be near the top so many of our brilliant minds can keep "munching" on it. [So...

Symbiotic relationships include those associations in which one organism lives on another (ectosymbiosis, such as mistletoe), or where one partner lives inside the other (endosymbiosis, such as lactobacilli and other bacteria in humans or zooxanthelles in corals)..http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbiosis
