How to Increase Metabolism : Carbohydrate Options to Boost Metabolism

Carbohydrates that are needed for our metabolism comes from all of or part of each group off a food pyramid. Here is the MyPramid that is created by the USDA. About ever 5-7 years as you can see here, there are different food groups. Carbohydrates comes from grains and there are all different kinds of […]

Ramanujan Hegde (MRC) 1: Compartmentalization of Proteins Inside Cells

Hello. My name is Manu Hegde. I’m a group leader at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, England, and in this series of three talks I’m going to talk about how proteins inside of cells get compartmentalized among the different organelles. Now, since the 1950s, it’s been possible to prepare biological specimens so […]

The Energy Balance in Nutrition

To recharge my phone, all I need to do is plug it into an electrical outlet. If I were to put my fingers in the electrical socket, however, all I would accomplish is risking an electrocution. As we already learned, our only option to ‘recharge’ ourself is eating food. Every day we need to spend […]

How to Increase Metabolism : Metabolic Effects of a Low Carbohydrate Diet

What happens to our metabolism without proper amounts and also appropriate kinds of carbohydrates? What happens to our bodies without that? I like to think of it as an example of how gas, on how a car runs on gas. So if you give your car a premium gas then it tends to run much […]

Could virus-like proteins be causing Alzheimer’s?

Alzheimer’s has been a puzzle for a long time. You see, inside the brains of patients with the disease are two types of abnormally folded proteins—but no one knows which one’s responsible for the devastating symptoms. One is the build-up of amyloid into plaques. And the other is what we call tangles that accumulate inside […]

Protein Transport into Mitochondria

Hello frnds in this videos we will be discussing abt Protein Transport into Mitochondria……….. we know Most of the proteins destined for mitochondria are synthesised in the cytosol and then these proteins are transported into the mitochondria … and for this transport to occur the Proteins contain Signal Sequences , where to get transported in […]

How to Increase Metabolism : How Vitamins Boost Metabolism

As we talked about earlier energy metabolism is provided by protein carbohydrates and fats. However that other nutrient some of the vitamins, minerals are more supporting nutrients and work with the protein, carbohydrates and fats when energy is created. These were the supporting vitamins that we discussed earlier and the majority of these are found […]

Serine Family & Methionine Catabolism – Biochemistry | Lecturio

The next amino acid metabolism family I want to consider is that of the serine family. So, the serine family, as the other families are described, uses serine as a central amino acid for branching out to make the other amino acids. So to understand this family, I need to first describe how serine is […]

Non-enzymatic protein function | Chemical processes | MCAT | Khan Academy

So we’re going to be talking about non-enzymatic protein function. And before we get into what exactly that means, let’s just say we are playing a game of Scattergories. And the next category that comes up is protein, and you have to list all the different types of protein that you know. And so you’re […]

18. Amide, Carboxylic Acid and Alkyl Lithium

Prof: Okay, so we’re at the conclusion of our theoretical study of bonds and reactivity, then we’ll go on to something completely different, and we’re ending by talking about reactivity in terms of four functional groups, and you’re doing your own functional groups, remember, for tomorrow. Okay? So we already talked about carbonyl last time. […]
