  • Bioremediation: Introduction, Contaminates, Types, Microorganisms, Strategies, Advantages

    Introduction: Type of contaminants: Microorganisms in Bioremediation: Aerobic bacteria Many of these bacteria grow in the presence of oxygen that use the contaminant as the sole source of carbon and energy. It degrades pesticides and hydrocarbons, both alkanes and polyaromatic compounds. Examples: Pseudomonas, Alcaligenes, Sphingomonas, Rhodococcus, and Mycobacterium Methanotrophs/ Methylotrophs Bacteria that convert methane into…

  • Cytoskeleton (CSK): Introduction, Components, Filaments, Protein, Diseases

    Introduction: Cytoskeleton (CSK) is a complex, three-dimensional, dynamic network of interlinking protein filaments found in the cytoplasm of all cells which can be defined simply as “structural frame/ support of cells” (Cyto = Cell + Skeleton = structural support/ frame). It is a complex network of protein filaments or fibres along with motor proteins that…
