...PLASMA CVD I start this article with the introduction to the Chemical vapor deposition (CVD). CVD is a chemical phenomenon of a material to deposit it on another material. This is done using thin films of the different materials. A typical CVD phenomenon includes the exposure of a material commonly in volatile format with the substrate which allows the reaction of those and obtains the desired result, deposit or exposure. During the process byproducts are also produced which are evolved as gas through the chamber of reaction. CVD is the process which is an essential component of various processes which include the powders, coatings, fibers and monolithic materials. CVD is very versatile... ?HIGH DENSITY...

...Plasma Membrane and Diffusion Introduction The interior of the cells is separated from the outside by a membrane known as a cell membrane whose permeability to ions and organic molecules are selective[Yos07]. The cell membrane controls the move movement of molecular particles in and out of the cell and its main function is protecting the cell from its surrounding. The cell membrane is mainly composed of the lipid layer embedded with proteins and it’s involved in the following cellular processes: Signaling of the cell, Adhesioning of the cell and conductivity of the ions in the cell and it forms the external attachment of cells interior to the extracellular structures which...

The assay mainly depends on an enzyme which conjugates with an antibody and reacts with a chromogenic substrate to give a colored product. A number of different enzymes are used in ELISA and numerous variants of ELISA have been developed. In this experiment we have conducted the solid-phase sandwich ELISA which allows for detection and quantification of the antigen (Stryer et al, 2002). Here, the antibody is immobilized in wells and antigens are allowed to react with it. After washing, an enzyme-linked antibody which is specific for an epitope on the antigen is added...

Most of the people confuse plasma osmolarity with plasma osmolality. The difference is the amount of measure used to quantify the amount of solutes in plasma. One litre of plasma osmolality is equivalent to 1 kilogram of plasma osmolarity. Osmolality in blood tend to increase with the body loss of water. For a normal person the antidiuretic hormone will be under stimulation if there is increased rate of osmolality. The presence of antidiuretic hormone leads to reabsorption of water.

...plasma membrane are primary examples because they protect the contents of the cell from the external environment as well as harmful foreign bodies. A nucleus is the brain of a cell and so it tends to be located in the center of an animal cell. Similarly, the nucleoid region in the bacteria also tends to be located towards the center. In plant cells... Experiment Labeling   cilia Questions For each structure identified, do you think its location affects its ability to function? Why or why not?  (Hint: those buried deep in the cell probably do different things than those closer to the cell membrane)  Yes, for most of the structures identified, location does affect their ability to function.

...plasma membrane of the cells of every animal (Mary 23). Located strategically on the plasma membrane of a cell and just as the name of the enzyme suggests sodium potassium pump thrusts potassium into the cells of the animals while pumping out sodium out of the cells. While the enzymes perform the antiporter like function, they are not actual antiporter since the molecules it pumps in both directions flow against their gradient of concentration. In doing this, the enzyme performs fundamental functions... Sodium Potassium Pump Sodium-potassium pump, also known as sodium-potassium adenosine triphosphatase, Na+ /K+ -ATPaseor Na+/K+ pump is a type of enzyme known as antiporter-like enzyme situated in the...

...plasma glucose levels, whereas, others are delayed like prompting protein synthesis and lipogenesis which take place over a period of minutes to hours (Barrett et al 2010, p. 318). In the fed state, rise in glucose levels causes insulin levels to rise. Insulin, in turn, leads to utilisation or storage of glucose and storage of amino acids and fatty acids into proteins and fats, respectively (Harvey & Ferrier 2011).

...plasma levels of digoxin were increased (Celine et al., 2003). In another study, the effect of MDR1 inhibition was measured on the effect of drug interaction between digoxin and quinidine. Quinidine enhances plasma concentration of digoxin by inhibiting MDR1. The co-administration of quinidine and digoxin resulted in an elevated concentration of digoxin and reduced excretion in urine (Fromm et al., 1999). Another study on mice indicated that absence of MDR 1 resulted in reduced excretion of digoxin (Funakoshi et al., 2003), dexamethasone...
