Explanation of 5′ and 3′, C terminus, and N terminus | MIT 7.01SC Fundamentals of Biology

PROFESSOR: Hi. In this clip, we’re going to discuss the numbering and labeling conventions of RNA and of protein. Here we have a nucleoside triphosphate or NTP. This NTP is numbered on each carbon. And we’re going to start here to the right of this oxygen and label one prime and proceed two prime, three […]

Protein Synthesis | Biology for All | FuseSchool

Proteins are made of a long chain of amino acids which is being coded for by DNA. The order of the basis of DNA determines which protein is made by coding for a specific order of amino acids. This is protein synthesis and in this video, we’re going to look at how it works. You […]

What is a Protein? Learn about the 3D shape and function of macromolecules

Proteins play countless roles throughout the biological world, from catalyzing chemical reactions to building the structures of all living things. Despite this wide range of functions, all proteins are made out of the same twenty building blocks, called amino acids. The way these twenty amino acids are arranged dictates the folding of the protein into […]

BCAAs Explained in 60 seconds – Should You Supplement With BCAAs?

BCAAs. What are they? Should you be taking them? BCAAs are actually amino acids, branched chain amino acids. They’re also “essential” amino acids, which means your body can’t make them and you have to eat them. And there are three of them. Isoleucine, which helps with energy uptake and preserves protein breakdown. Valine, which isn’t […]

BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acids) | Bodybuilding Diet

Branched-chain amino acids are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These three amino acids are essential. They are coupled together, hence the name “branched-chain amino acids.” They’re chained together. There’s probably not more studies and more data done on any other amino acids rather than these three essential amino acids with regard to their ability to help […]
