Biotechnology: Biological Fundamentals, Volume 1, Second

Each person taken with biotechnology will get pleasure from having this quantity at their fingertips. It includes the organic historical past fabric that is critical for the advance of biotechnological techniques and provides a different choice of present details at the simple biology (ecology, taxonomy, biochemistry, body structure, and genetics) of industrially very important organisms.
the 1st a part of the publication offers the organic features of mobilephone constitution, association, and metabolism to acquire a greater realizing of the overall functionality of cells. the second one half bargains with a wide assemblage of insustrially very important organisms. All of this knowledge might be an invaluable foundation in case you all at once locate themselves engaged on a brand new biotechnological project.

Example text

At the ultrastructural level, the contents of microbodies often turned out to be crystalline; cells grown under methanol-limited conditions contained a completely crystalline contents in their peroxisomes, due to crystallization of alcohol oxidase molecules. 1 General Plant-Specific Aspects Cells of plants, as those of animals, exhibit an enormous variety of specialization depending on their function within a tissue or an organism (GUNNING and STEER,1975). An obvious plant-specific aspect is their potential to perform photosynthesis (STAEHELINand ARNTZEN, 1986) (see Fig.

CY, protein crystal; F, strorna thylakoids; G, grana. Inset: Demonstration of catalase activity in a peroxi- some. and STEER(1986), reproduced by From GUNNING permission of Gustav Fischer Verlag 35). Glyoxisomes contain enzymes of the glyoxylic acid cycle; they use lipids stored in lipid droplets, and they are located close to these droplets. During the early stages of the development of plants, microbodies of the glyoxisome type originally present in the cells can be converted into peroxisomes when the stored lipids are used up and fully functioning chloroplasts are differentiated.

A well-known naturally occurring reaction involving lectins is the recognition of the host root cells by Rhizobium. The plant lectin is assumed to interact with the lipopolysaccharide and the fimbriae of the bacterium. The properties of lectin allow their application in fields such as the detection of sugarcontaining macromolecules in membranes, and they can be labeled with markers. This simplifies identification and localization experiments by microscopic and autoradiographic techniques. 3 Cell Wall Structures Typical plant cells are surrounded by a cell wall which contains polymerized sugars as the major constituent (FREY-WYSSLING, 1976).
