The transformation of inanimate matter into living - not hopeless delusion medieval alchemists. Man came not from an animal. Homo Sapiens is not the crown of nature, as we used to think, but it is the same principle, as unicellular. Our planet since ancient times has been a kind of Noah's Ark, which is home to the "prototype" of all living things - "every creature." A flu can infect us space. And human civilization is able to colonize planets of distant stellar worlds in much the same as it once out of the universe was brought to Earth life. More? Please. Homunculus Read more [...]
In its structure, the simplest biological systems and hydrocarbon crystals are remarkably similar. If such a mineral supplement protein components, we get a real protoorganizm. That's what started to see the beginning of the crystallization concept of the origin of life.From what and how life originated? Modern science gathers more data, specifying the nature of the transition from non-living to the living forms of matter. It becomes clear that the geochemical evolution of the Earth led inevitably to biogenic processes, to the origin of life. We have a good idea, both from simple chemical Read more [...]
Mol. weight (MW) of proteins varies from a few thousand to several million (most proteins have mol. weight in the range of tens - hundreds of thousands). B. mostly soluble in water or saline solutions, creating solutions that have the properties of colloids (see). In living tissue proteins in varying degrees hydrated. In solution B. very unstable and easily precipitated by heating or other effects, often losing their native properties, including solubility in the original solvent (coagulation, denaturation).
As polymers of amino acids, proteins contain free acid (carboxyl) and basic (hydrated Read more [...]
Localization in tissues and physiological role of diagnostic value

Enzymes (Enzymes) - are specific proteins which act as biological catalysts are produced by living cells.
Enzymes are different from conventional catalysts of its greater specificity (see below), and the ability to accelerate the course of chemical reactions in the normal functioning of the body.
Enzymes are present in all living cells - animal, plant, bacterial. Most enzymes in various tissues in very small concentrations, but there are cases where the enzymatic activity of the protein has a big part of the cell plasma, such as myosin in muscle. The molecular weight of the enzyme varies widely, Read more [...]
Dry poison Cobra retains toxicity when irradiated with gamma rays 60Co at 60 mrad, and the action on solutions of 4 mrad venom (2 mg / ml) gives its antigenic and toxic properties (Lauhatirananda is a., 1970).
As can be seen, the effect of temperature and irradiation on the individual fractions snake venoms from different families are different. Ammonia and carbolic acid diluted 1: 20 and sublimate 1: 1000 or impair the activity of the poison, caustic alkali in a dilution of 1: 10 activity weakens and destroys poison for 10 minutes.

In molasses from any source contains large amounts of potassium and calcium. In sugar beet molasses found more than 100 mg / kg of iron, 34 mg / kg of zinc, 18 mg / kg of manganese are present in smaller amounts cobalt (0.59 mg / kg), boron, copper and molybdenum. In cane molasses found chrome, tin, nickel, barium, molybdenum, silver, zinc, titanium and cobalt - all in less than 1 mg / kg, and more - calcium, magnesium, silicon, iron, and manganese. Both molasses also present cations of lead, cadmium, mercury and arsenic and their accumulation observed during the process. For example, beets Read more [...]
Bread is included in the daily diet of the child. Bread rich in carbohydrates and vegetable proteins. Biological value of the proteins bread is relatively low due to the lack of essential amino acids such as lysine, threonine. Bread is rich in minerals, especially trace elements, and contains significant amounts of vitamin B.
In the nutrition of young children can be used as wheaten, and rye bread (wheaten digested and absorbed better). Digestibility of grain depends on grinding flour. The finer the grind, the higher digestibility. Rye bread contains a lot of fiber that promotes normal digestion. Read more [...]
Lack of protein has adverse effects on the central nervous system, as evidenced by the experimental data and extensive clinical and epidemiological observations. In children receiving little protein, slowing the formation of speech, are lagging behind in psychomotor and intellectual development.
Interesting are the details of that with low-protein diet in animals significantly reduced the ability of bone to capture phosphorus, calcium in the bone is reduced, inhibited its growth and development [Golikov K. K, 1974 Simakov PV, etc. 1974].

In the digestive tract B. digested into amino acids, in the form which is absorbed into the blood and undergo further transformations (see the nitrogen metabolism). Enzymes acting on B. (protease, proteolytic enzymes) are themselves proteins. Each of them specifically cleaves specific peptide bonds in the protein molecule. To proteolytic enzymes, digestive tract include gastric pepsin, trypsin, chymotrypsin and pancreatic Read more [...]
The weakening of the hormonal and sympathetic elements of this system has a negative effect on the trophic tissues, their blood supply primarily in the synovial membrane of the joint, and it is known to be the main source of supply of the cartilage.
Epiphyseal cartilage due to their structural features has no blood vessels or nerves, and it is powered by means of osmosis and diffusion of the shell as a joint (synovial fluid) and capillary epiphyseal bone (by serum).
As a result of the deterioration of blood supply is reduced synovial membrane transport energy to cells and plastic materials and Read more [...]
The blood and lymph young people contains a large number of proteases, sufficient to destroy almost all emerging mutant cells. However, with age, serum reduced proteolytic capacity and at the same time, the number of inhibitors increases, so that the mutant cells in a large part to survive and divide. As a result, they develop multiple pathological conditions that are considered characteristic of old age. On the basis of these facts can be explained, thus greatly increasing frequency in the elderly cancer.
Obviously, if for a long time - it is best for the rest of life, from a certain age, such Read more [...]
