Transduction

Transduction is a mechanism of genetic recombination that occurs in bacteria where the incorporation of host cell DNA and the bacteriophage genetic material, which results in the formation of recombinant DNA. Bacterial transduction occurs by the means of generalized and specialized transduction. In generalized type, any of the genes can be transduced of the host cell …

Difference between Paper and Thin layer chromatography

The differences between the paper and thin layer chromatography are due to the following properties which include: The principle for the particle separation Use of stationary phase The main principle behind the particle separation in the paper chromatography is “Partition type” whereas in thin layer chromatography it is “Adsorption type”. Paper chromatography makes the use …

Difference Between Humoral and Cellular Immunity

The difference between humoral and cell-mediated immunity are mainly due to two factors like the type of an immune response and the Regulation of immunity. Type of Immune response: Humoral immunity produces an antibody-mediated immune response whereas cellular immunity produces a cell-mediated immune response. Regulation of Immunity: B cell mainly regulates the humoral immunity whereas …

Anther Culture

Anther culture is a type of tissue culture technique, where a part of a plant, i.e. Anther gives rise to an androgenic haploid plant when cultured in a nutrient medium under optimal conditions that are required for the growth of the cell. The process of anther culture comes under the process of “Androgenesis” which merely …

Rhizopus

Rhizopus is a type of fungus which belongs to the class Zygomycetes because of the fact that it produces zygospore in its sexual reproductive phase. It also refers to bread, black or pin mould. These can reproduce by vegetative, asexual and sexual means followed by fragmentation, sporangiospores and zygospores. Rhizopus is cosmopolitan in distribution. It …

Aspergillus

Aspergillus is a common fungus, which is present everywhere, in the soil, air, water etc. or we can say it is present in a wide range of conditions. Therefore, these are ubiquitous in nature. It consists of several 100-500 species among which some are economically important and some are deleterious i.e. pathogenic. It was named …

Difference Between Endonuclease and Exonuclease

The difference between Endonuclease and Exonuclease is mainly due to the following two properties like mode of action and the site of cleavage. Mode of action: Endo-nuclease cuts the nucleotide bases from the middle by breaking the phosphodiester backbone of nucleotide. Exo-nuclease cuts the nucleotide bases at the ends by breaking the phosphodiester backbone of …

Difference Between Glycolysis and Kreb’s Cycle

The differences between glycolysis and Kreb’s cycle are mainly due to the following factors like: The occurrence of the process Type of respiration Net energy production i.e. ATP The occurrence of the Process: Glycolysis occurs in the cytoplasm whereas Kreb’s cycle occurs inside the mitochondria. Type of Respiration: Glycolysis can carry out both aerobic and …
