Krebs (Citric Acid) Cycle Steps by Steps Explanation 4.66/5 (258)

Krebs (Citric Acid) Cycle Steps by Steps Explanation

Krebs (Citric Acid) Cycle Steps by Steps Explanation It is also known as TriCarboxylic Acid (TCA) cycle.  In prokaryotic cells, the citric acid cycle occurs in the cytoplasm; in eukaryotic cells, the citric acid cycle takes place in the matrix of the mitochondria.  The cycle was first elucidated by scientist “Sir Hans Adolf Krebs” (1900 […]

Benedict’s Test- Principle, Composition, Preparation, Procedure and Result Interpretation 4.38/5 (358)

Result Interpretation of Benedict's Test

Benedict’s Test- Principle, Composition, Preparation, Procedure and Result Interpretation Benedict’s Test is used to test for simple carbohydrates. The Benedict’s test identifies reducing sugars (monosaccharide’s and some disaccharides), which have free ketone or aldehyde functional groups. Benedict’s solution can be used to test for the presence of glucose in urine.  Some sugars such as glucose are called reducing […]

Glycolysis- 10 steps explained steps by steps with diagram 4.71/5 (1,723)

Glycolysis- 10 steps explained steps by steps with diagram

Glycolysis- 10 steps explained steps by steps with diagram Glycolysis is the metabolic process that serves as the foundation for both aerobic and anaerobic cellular respiration. In glycolysis, glucose is converted into pyruvate. Glucose is a six- memebered ring molecule found in the blood and is usually a result of the breakdown of carbohydrates into sugars. It […]

Types of Crystals in Urine 4.2/5 (498)

Calcium carbonate crystals

Types of Crystals in Urine Uric acid crystals invariably form in acidic urine, typically with a urine pH < 5.5. Uric acid is soluble in alkaline urine, preventing the precipitation of urate crystals. The inability of uric acid to crystallize at urine pH > 7.0 is the rationale for urinary alkalinization in patients at risk for acute uric acid nephropathy. […]
