7.3 The eukaryotic chromosome
This unit helps you understand the properties of nucleotides and how they contribute to secondary and tertiary structures of nucleic acids at the molecular level. You will learn about the different composition and roles of nucleic acids in the cell, their interactions with each other and the use of ribozymes, aptamers, antisense and hybridization as tools in molecular research. The unit covers the function of DNA packaging within the cell, the interactions between the DNA double helix and the nu

Lesson #035, Friday

scrivere = to write

leggere = to read

credere = to believe

vedere = to see

Then to conjugate these infinitives, you will drop the 'ere' and add the following endings:

io = add 'o'

tu = add 'i'

Lei/lui/lei = add 'e'

noi = add 'iamo'

voi = add 'ete'

loro = add 'ono'

So to conjugate the verb 'scrivere':

io scrivo

tu scrivi

What causes pain and how do we stop it? This unit looks at how the human body responds to the release of certain chemicals and as a result feels pain. Pain can be reduced by inhibiting the formation of such chemicals and you will learn how the molecular structure of aspirin has been formulated to help in this process.
