6.6 Summary of Section 6

  1. The majority of proteins of known function are enzymes. Enzymes are biological catalysts, increasing the rates of reactions. Enzymes are not permanently altered by catalysis of a reaction.

  2. The transition state is an unstable intermediate enzyme–substrate complex in which the enzyme and the substrate are in highly strained conformations.

  3. There are a number of different catalytic mechanisms employed by enzymes including general

4.3 A commercial implementation

In order to conclude this section I shall describe a commercial implementation of an object bus. It has been developed by a company known as SoftWired Ltd and is known as iBus. It is based on TCP/IP rather than UDP. The facilities offered by the iBus API provide developers with the facilities to construct objects which can subscribe to channels and to transmit any Java object to a channel. The code for a transmitter is shown below; the import statements are not shown. In

1.3.2 Peat formation in raised mires

Mires can also form inland within low-lying depressions, provided the rate of precipitation exceeds the rate of evaporation (Figure 4a). Peat is impermeable and so its accumulation progressively impedes drainage. This attribute gives mires the ability to maintain a water table independent of the area surrounding them.

4 Exploring the explanations

At this point the emphasis of the discussion changes somewhat. We are going to use three case studies to illustrate some of the problems and difficulties that parents can face in their day-to-day lives. After reviewing the case studies you will be asked to reflect on some possible reasons and explanations for the situations outlined.

1.6.5 Folate (folic acid, vitamin B9)

Folate is a generic name for a group of related compounds. The name ‘folate’ was based on the word ‘foliage’, after it was identified in a crude extract from spinach, though it is also found in liver, other green vegetables, oranges and potatoes and it is often added to breakfast cereals (usually listed as folic acid). Folate is less sensitive to heat than many of the B vitamins, though it is destroyed if food is reheated or kept hot for long periods. Folate is involved in amino acid

1.7 The hadron era

Time: 10−5 s to 100 s

Temperature: 3 × 1012 K to 109 K

Energy: 1 GeV to 300 keV

From the time that the temperature fell to about 3 × 1012 K, at about 10−5 s after the Big Bang, stable baryons (protons and neutrons) began to form from the up and down quarks that remained after the annihilation of matter and antimatter.

1.4.1 Salicylic acid

The structural formula of salicylic acid, 2.1, looks quite complicated. However, it becomes less daunting if you unpack it a bit. One of the first things to do when confronted with an unfamiliar structure is to check that all the valencies are correct (four for carbon, two for oxygen and one for hydrogen). If any atoms have the wrong valency, it follows that there is a mistake somewhere and the molecule does not exist as drawn. It looks OK for the structure of salicylic acid. You proba

4.1.4 Summary

  • Identity is based on being the same as some people and different from others.

  • Identities are constructed in relation to place.

  • Difference is unequally weighted and can create categories of outsiders.

  • Individuals and groups have to negotiate both the uncertainties of social change and the constraints of inequality.

1.5.3 Desktop search tools

Finding your paperwork or electronic files can be a problem. You may find that even if you do have some sort of filing system, your structure soon gets quite large with files in multiple locations, which can be hard to navigate. You may find yourself making arbitrary decisions about which folder to place a document in. It may make sense now but in the future, when you look where you think it should be, it's not there.

At times like this you may resort to the search command from the Wind
