... that span the membrane. Class 5. Lipid Anchored--------- These proteins undergo substitution with the carbohydrate groups of glycolipids, therefore binding covalently with the lipid. This classification is not definitive in including all proteins, since there may well be other examples that span the membrane with different numbers of anchor chains. The structure of proteins varies greatly. The first factor affecting structure is the proteins function, but equally important is the proteins location, as shown above. Those proteins that span the membrane have regions of hydrophobic amino acids arranged in alpha-helices that act as anchors. The alpha-helix allows maximum Hydrogen bonding, an ...

Evolution Of The Central Bank - 1,187 words
An important idea that the revolutionary United States originated is the separation of powers. That idea applies not only to a nations government but also her central banking system. Like the government itself, a central bank requires autonomy from the government while exercising influences on each other. The complementary effect leads to a successful national economy. In analyzing the history and development of the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, and the United States Federal Reserve, one understands the necessary elements and their contributions to the evolution of central banks. The oldest central bank is the Bank of England. Founded in 1694, the Bank of Englands structure reflects it ...

History Of Rap Music - 3,600 words
Rap music is truly an American minority artist creation of which students need to be proud. Unfortunately, rap music is not perceived by many Americans as an art form, but as a fad which they hope will soon fade away. One of my intentions with my unit is to show that rap music is not a fad, but a musical art form that has been around for over 20 years in the United States. In fact, one can trace the history of rap back to the West African professional singers/storytellers known as Griots. However, it is not my intention to discuss in my unit the connection between the Griots and American rap music. Although, I will assign my students the task of doing a brief report on the African Griots pri ...

The air thermometer is an excellent demonstration of Charles' law because the atmosphere maintains a fixed downward pressure above a small mercury plug of constant mass. The volume of a trapped sample of air increases on heating until the pressure of the trapped air equals the pressure of the atmosphere plus the small pressure due to the plug. Nevertheless, Am ...

Ideologies Of The Democracy Movement In China - 1,695 words
After Deng Xiaoping gained power in 1978, a new political atmosphere was promised for the Chinese people. A promise of a free land with a modern economic state was made by Deng in order to gain public support. During Deng's reign, a series of economic reforms were made. These reforms had major impacts on both the economy and the society of China. Although it has been argued that Deng was leading a totalitarian regime, historians tend to overlook the idea that the Chinese have different ideologies and morals than people in the west. Chinese intellectuals who looked to the west as a model for democracy absorbed themselves into the western culture, and believed that everything that China stood ...

The Neuromuscular Junction As A Site Of Disease Process - 1,575 words
Proteins involved in formation of the neuromuscular junction The neuromuscular junction is a specialized junction, where a motor nerve forms its synaptic terminal with a muscle fibre, one of many fibres that make up a whole muscle. The mature neuromuscular junction is composed of three types of cells - a motor nerve terminal, a muscle fibre and a Schwann cell covering the junction. All three of these cells are highly differentiated and specialized for their functions (Kandel 2000, p. 1089). The events that occur during the formation of the neuromuscular junction have been extensively studied and are the most comprehensively understood of any nerve-to-target cell contact. Prior to formation o ...

Economic Indicators Used To Project Economic Policy - 1,930 words
When one speaks of the economy they should speak of it as if it were an animate object. An economy may healthy, productive or efficient. Likewise, an economy may be weak, slow or inefficient. The question is how do we know how to classify our economy? GNP -GROSS NATIONAL PRODUCT. Economists have devised numerous statistics designed to ascertain the overall health of our economy. Historically, the most quoted measure of economic activity is what is called Gross National Product (GNP). The Gross National Product (GNP) is a nation's total output of goods and services produced BY a country in one year. In obtaining the value of the GNP, only the final value of a product is counted (e.g. homes bu ...

The stock market crash of 1929 served a devastating blow to the national economy. Many people suddenly found themselves out of work as the nation spiraled into The Great Depression of the 1930's. Many Americans were forced to default on their mortgage loans. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA), a wholly owned government corporation, was established under the National Housing Act of 1934. Its primary goals were to provide an adequate home financing system through insurance of mortgages and to stabilize the mortgage market.
