Antoine Lavoisier

...Revolution. As Lavoisier had been a tax collector, he earned the wrath of the revolutionaries, who executed him on 8 May 1794. SOURCE: http://humantouchofchemistry.com/antoinelaurent-de-lavoisier.htm Elements and Atoms: Chapter 3 Lavoisier's Elements of Chemistry Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier (1743-1794) has been called the founder of modern chemistry. (View a portrait of Mme. & M. Lavoisier by Jacque-Louis David at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.) Among his important contributions were the application of the balance and the principle of conservation of mass to chemistry, the explanation of combustion and respiration in terms of combination with oxygen rather than loss of phlogiston (See chapter 5.), and a reform of chemical nomenclature. His Traité Élementaire de Chimie (1789), from which the present extract is taken in a contemporary translation, was a tremendously influential synthesis of his work. Lavoisier was a public servant as well as a scientist. Under the French monarchy, he was a member of the tax-collecting agency, the Ferme Générale. His work for the government included advocating rational agricultural methods and improving the manufacture of gunpowder. His service to France continued during the Revolution. He was an alternate deputy of the reconvened Estates-General in 1789, and from 1790 served on a commission charged with making weights and measures uniform across France. A Parisian by birth, Lavoisier also died in Paris, guillotined with other......

What We Know About Wheat and How It Affects

...contained in wheat has been increasing year over year? (Davis MD, 2011) Gluten is used and is perhaps essential in creating many delicious foods. Unfortunately, gluten related illnesses are becoming more common and the only known treatment is to avoid the gluten containing foods altogether. Currently, experts know of at least three conditions that are related to consumption of gluten. These are: celiac disease (CD), wheat allergy (WA), and gluten sensitivity (GS) (which is also referred to as non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS)). In addition, recent research has found that a gluten free diet is linked to reversing various chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes. (Soares, 2013), (Spectrum of gluten-related disorders: consensus on new nomenclature and classification, 2012) Celiac disease is a genetic, autoimmune disease that damages the finger-like villi of the small intestines, disabling the body’s ability to absorb nutrients, leading to malnutrition. The only known treatment is to follow a gluten free diet. Further complications can develop when celiac disease is left untreated, including: neurological disorders, osteoporosis, infertility, thyroid disease, some cancers, and other autoimmune diseases. Notably, the prevalence of celiac disease effects an estimated 1% of the population. It has increased dramatically in both the United States and in Europe over the past fifty (50) years, and as populations in the Middle East and Asia move towards a more Western......

...orders of magnitude • High specificity - enzymes can catalyze a specific molecule, their function can be as specific to catalyze a specific stereo orientation of a molecule or as general as to catalyze the reactions of an organic functional group. • Ability to be regulated - cells can activate or deactivate the enzyme when the environment and situation are right. Nomenclature: The nomenclature for enzymes have undergone a change. Initially an enzyme was named with the suffix –in. Today the –ase suffix has replaced the –in ending. Trypsin and chymotrysin are examples of old nomenclature and sucrase is and example of the new nomenclature. Specific Enzymes: Trypsin, the enzyme which selectively cleaves a substrates peptide bonds following the basic amino amino acids arginine or lysine, is an example of the old nomenclature. Chymotrypsin is a variation of trypsin and cleaves peptide bonds on the C-terminus of the tryptophan, tyrosine, phenylalanine, and methionine amino acids. [pic] Sucrase, the enzyme used to break the substrate sucrose’s glycosidic bond, is an example of the new nomenclature. Classification: 1. Reductase a. redox reactions b. reduce ethanol to ethanal 2. Transferase a. moves functional groups from one molecule to another, intermolecular b. kinase transfers phosphate groups 3. Hydrolase a. hydrolysis reactions b. lipase breaks a triglyceride into glycerol and fatty acids ......

...differently, presumably owing to rapid rRNA evolution. The exact relationships of the three domains are still being debated. Main article: Systematics Multiple speciation events create a tree structured system of relationships between species. The role of systematics is to study these relationships and thus the differences and similarities between species and groups of species.[47] However, systematics was an active field of research long before evolutionary thinking was common.[48] The classification, taxonomy, and nomenclature of biological organisms is administered by the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, International Code of Botanical Nomenclature, and International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria for animals, plants, and bacteria, respectively. The classification of viruses, viroids, prions, and all other sub-viral agents that demonstrate biological characteristics is conducted by the International Code of Virus classification and nomenclature.[49][50][51][52] However, several other viral classification systems do exist. Traditionally, living things have been divided into five kingdoms: Monera; Protista; Fungi; Plantae; Animalia.[53] However, many scientists now consider this five-kingdom system outdated. Modern alternative classification systems generally begin with the three-domain system: Archaea (originally Archaebacteria); Bacteria (originally Eubacteria); Eukaryota (including protists, fungi, plants, and animals)[54] These domains reflect whether......

Blood

...death in the fetus or newborn. Sensitization can occur any time the fetus’s blood mixes with the mother’s blood. It can occur if an Rh-negative woman has had a spontaneous or undetected miscarriage of a Rh positive fetus. Rh factor An individual either has, or does not have, the "Rh factor" on the surface of their red blood cells. This term strictly refers only to the most immunogenic D antigen of the Rh blood group system, or the Rh− blood group system. The status is usually indicated by Rh positive (Rh+ does have the D antigen) or Rh negative (Rh− does not have the D antigen) suffix to the ABO blood type. However, other antigens of this blood group system are also clinically relevant. These antigens are listed separately (see below: Rh nomenclature). In contrast to the ABO blood group, immunization against Rh can generally only occur through blood transfusion or placental exposure during pregnancy in women. History of discoveries In 1939, Philip Levine and Rufus Stetson published in a first case report the clinical consequences of non-recognized Rh factor, hemolytic transfusion reaction and hemolytic disease of the newborn in its most severe form.[1] It was recognized that the serum of the reported woman agglutinated with red blood cells of about 80% of the people although the then known blood groups, in particular ABO were matched. No name was given to this agglutinin when described for the first time. In 1940, Karl Landsteiner and Alexander S. Wiener reported a serum......

...These recommendations document the von Baeyer system for naming polycyclic ring systems described in Rules A-31, A-32 and B-14 of the Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry, Sections A, B, C, D, E, F and H, 1979 and R-2.4.2 of A Guide to IUPAC Nomenclature of Organic Compounds, 1993 and extend the system to cover more complex cases. It provides guidance on the naming of ring systems which previously the rules did not cover. The method is to identify the main ring and main bridge which provide the basic bicyclic system and to number these atoms. Then all further bridges, whether or not they include additional atoms, are identified by indicating not only the number of atoms but also the two atoms to which the bridge is attached. The final name also indicates the number of rings and the total number of skeletal atoms in the ring system. Heteroatoms, unsaturation and substituents are indicated in the usual way. Preamble This system of naming polycyclic compounds was first developed for bicyclic compounds by von Baeyer (ref 1) and was extended to tricyclic systems by Buchner and Weigand (ref 2). Von Baeyer nomenclature was adopted by Patterson (ref 3) in his work for IUPAC on ring nomenclature which was used in the Ring Index (ref 4) and by the Chemical Abstracts Service Index Guide, Appendix IV, ¶ 155, 161, 184 (ref 5). IUPAC extended von Baeyer nomenclature in the current rules, see rules A-31, A-32 (hydrocarbons), B-14 (heterocyclic compounds) plus examples in B-6.1, C-514.4,......
