i think it's either a or d, because when rubisco combines CO2 and RuBP it results in an unstable six carbon compund that immediately breaks down into two PGAs, which are three carbons.

that's how many NADH+ H+ are made, and they yield three ATP molecules each in the end.

I believe you are correct. 9 kcal for 1 gram fat against 8 kcal for two grams of glucose.

Capping may increase the half life. Bacterial mRNA has a half life of around 2 minutes most of the time. When capped, though it is necessary to link to the ribosomes, eukaryotic mRNA has a much longer half life (10-24 hours). It is unsure if the cap is the reason, but my textbook pitches the idea. N...

well, microtubules are made up of proteins, specifically alpha and beta tubulins. they also act as substrates for other proteins like dynein and kinesin. so i guess they do need the help of proteins, besides the fact that they are also made of proteins. does that help?

Haha...
I did realize that none of their claims were reliable or even necessarily backed up. But is it true what they said about the agrobacteria?

If it were, do you think it's possible?

I do not caim to know much about morgellons, but this prompted me to do some reading. I read in a few places that often the symptoms of morgellons coincide with those of lyme disease. If lyme disease lowered immunity, then it would allow opportunistic agents to infect the person. The fibers might be...

like how you would consume proteins, break them down, metabolize them, then use the amino acids to build and synthesize other proteins your body needs. Chemical nature woud be how you could tell what it was through its chemical structure. For example, proteins are very large and consist of amino aci...

because learning to control bacterial growth can be important. if you can halt the cell cycle, that would arrest the bacteria and prevent it from reproducing. It might be useful in a drug or something of the sort.
