    monomers. Methods of dialysis and gel filtration chromatography will be used to separate a glucose monomer from a starch polymer. Colorimetric glucose oxidase assay will be used to monitor the presence of glucose and a colorimetric iodine assay will be used to monitor the presence of starch in prepared solutions after separation Results and Discussion Table 1: Glucose oxidase

  • Diabetes Case Study

    923 Words  | 4 Pages

    In Diabetes blood glucose levels raise after a meal and remain above normal levels because insulin is either inadequate or ineffective. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes, it accounts for 90 to 95% of cases.(1) The primary defect is insulin resistance or a lack of sensitivity to insulin in eight main areas which includes muscle, adipose cells, liver, beta cell in the pancreas, alpha cells in the pancreas, intestine, kidney and brain. Muscle is affected by becoming resistant to insulin

  • Rate of Respiration in Yeast Essay

    of yeast cells in the presence of two different sugar solutions: glucose, sucrose. I will examine the two solutions seeing which one makes the yeast respire faster. I will be able to tell which sugar solution is faster at making the yeast respire by counting the number of bubbles passed through 20cm of water after the yeast and glucose solutions have been mixed. Prediction: I predict that the glucose solution will provide the yeast with a better medium by which it

  • Fermentation Lab Report

    1923 Words  | 8 Pages

    Fermentation is the anaerobic process by which glucose, or other sugars are catabolized by microorganisms without an electron transport chain, like yeast (Campbell, 2004). In experiment one the yeast and glucose acted as reactants, with the yeast breaking down the glucose, producing the products CO2 and ethanol. The overall reaction for the alcoholic fermentation that took place can be represented as 2 pyruvate + 2NADH-> 2NAD+ +2CO2 + 2 ethanol (Campbell, 2004). This biological process allows cells

  • Aspartame Effect On Yeast Fermentation Rate

    855 Words  | 4 Pages

    generate glucose into energy without using any oxygen molecules. We tested the fermenting ability of yeast from two different carbon sources: glucose and aspartame. We hypothesized that yeast is unable to use the carbon sources of aspartame. To do this, we decided to use both carbon sources in the same concentration. Each carbon source was mixed with the same amount of yeast solution. The experiment group of 5.5 mM aspartame solution was compared with the control group of 5.5mM glucose solution.

The protein concentration in bovine cells was measured by diluting the homogenate with a 1:5 ratio; 50 microliters of homogenate and 200 microliters of water. Then 5 known protein concentration samples which were 0.4, 0.8, 1.2, 1.6, 2.0 mg/ml of bovine serum were used to

    of blood glucose levels. Insulin transfers glucose from the blood stream into cells and takes glucose and stores it as glycogen. It also effectively reduces blood glucose. Glucagon, its antagonist, converts hepatic glycogen into glucose, increasing blood glucose levels. When blood glucose levels are too high, pancreas β-beta cells release insulin, which will stimulate uptake of glucose into cells, resulting in a reduction of blood glucose levels. On the other hand, when blood glucose levels are

  • How Sugar Metabolism Affects Your Body

    1134 Words  | 5 Pages

    their simplest component, usually glucose. The primary function of sugar in your body metabolism is to provide energy to power your activities. Additionally, sugar can convert to a stored form of energy in your body, and it plays a role in conserving your lean muscle mass. Background The starches you consume consist of large molecules of glucose linked together. Digestive enzymes secreted from your salivary glands and pancreas clip the starch into individual glucose units as your food passes from your
