  • Cytoskeleton

    Cytoskeleton: Function, Structure, Chemical Composition

    The cytoskeleton is an arrangement that helps cells to control their shape and internal organization. It also provides mechanical support that maintains cells to perform essential actions like division and movement. There is no single cytoskeletal element. Rather, various components perform together…

  • mitochondria

    Mitochondria Structure and Chemical Composition with Formation and Functions

    Mitochondria are very important organelles. These are present only in Eukaryotic cells. They are involved in the manufacturing and supply of energy to the cell. So it may be called the powerhouse of the cell. The size and number of…

  • plastids

    Plastids and three different Types with Structure and Structural Components

    The membranous bound and pigment-containing bodies present in the cell are called plastids. Plastids are present only in plant cells. There are three types of plastids: 1. Chloroplast The membrane-bound structure, containing green pigment is called a chloroplast. The chloroplasts…

    20 Types of Amino Acids with Definition and Classification

    Amino acids are organic compounds that contain an amino group (-NH2), carboxyl group (-COOH) and a side chain called functional group that is specific to each amino acid.in common, 20 types of amino acids are preferred which are further grouped…

  • structure of binomial nomenclature

    Binomial Nomenclature or Binary Nomenclature in Biology

    What is Binomial Nomenclature or Binomial Distribution? Binomial Distribution or Binomial Nomenclature is a formal system of naming living species; by giving a unique name composed of two parts. Both of these parts use Latin grammatical forms. Although; they can…

  • respiration

    What is Respiration? | Equations, Types and Mechanism with ATP

    The living organisms need energy for their activities. This energy is provided within the cell by respiration. Respiration is a universal process. The breakdown of complex carbon compounds and the release of maximum usable energy within the cell are called…

  • colloidal solution

    Characteristics of Colloidal Solutions with Examples

    What are Colloidal Solutions? A colloidal solution is a heterogeneous mixture in which solute particles are larger than molecules or ions, but not large enough to be seen by the naked eye. For example, clay in water or starch in…

  • Importance of Plasmolysis and Deplamolysis

    The shrinkage of protoplasm due to exosmosis of water is called plasmolysis. Plasmolysis refers to the separation of living protoplast of a plant cell from the cell wall when the cell is immersed in a hypertonic solution (solution with more…

  • imbibition

    factors affecting imbibition with Rate and Extent

    Imbibition is “a special type of diffusion in which there is a net movement of water molecules towards an imbibant” (hydrophilic surfaces that adsorb water such as colloids like protein, starch, clay, etc.) The force generated by the imbibants ss…

  • composition of soil

    Composition of Soil Factors affecting and Water Contents

    Soil is the medium of growth for plants and the plants are anchored in the soil, through their roots. Similarly, large amounts of water are continuously required by a plant during its life cycle. The water is largely absorbed from…
