The loss of a DNA base causes an abasic site

Hydrolysis of the deoxyribose Cl'–base linkage results in the complete loss of a purine or pyrimidine base, resulting in what is called an abasic site, an event with obvious genetic consequences. This hydrolysis reaction is much more likely to occur at purine bases, resulting in depurination of the DNA (Table 3a<

3.5 Summary of Section 3

  1. Protein domains allow segregation of different functions in the same protein. They can have a binding function, a structural function or a catalytic function.

  2. Binding domains mediate interactions between proteins of related function (such as those in a signalling cascade) and often are important in regulation of activity. Interactions via these binding domains are often dependent on the phosphorylation state of one of the binding partners. Exa

1.3 MacLean's Celtic roots

MacLean was born in 1911 in Osgaig, a small township on the Isle of Raasay, adjacent to Skye, the larger island where he went to school. His childhood was dominated by a majestic landscape. The woods of Raasay and the peaks of the Cuillin Hills on Skye are as central to his poetic universe as the hills of Cumbria to Wordsworth's. His father and mother combined work on a small croft with a tailoring business. The latter was severely hit by the great depression of the 1930s, and the family's re

Find out what solid-state physics has brought to Electromagnetism in the last 20 years. This course surveys the physics and mathematics of nanophotonics—electromagnetic waves in media structured on the scale of the wavelength. Topics include computational methods combined with high-level algebraic techniques borrowed from solid-state quantum mechanics: linear algebra and eigensystems, group theory, Bloch's theorem and conservation laws, perturbation methods, and coupled-mode theories, to u

2.6 Evaluating behaviourism

As the previous section indicates, although ‘classic’ behaviourism is rare in contemporary explanations of child development, many of its guiding principles have been retained in some form or other in the field of learning difficulties. One of the advantages of behaviourism lies in its utility as a form of direct communication with children who are too young to speak, or who are otherwise difficult to communicate with about their behaviour. It resulted in decades of research, becoming the
