What is the function of the Cahill cycle?

It's the alanine cycle. Think of alan on escalator code in front of his yard. Series of reactions in which amino groups and carbons from muscle are transported to the liver.

2

3

Draw out structure of urea

FA 93

4

Site of action of alcohol dehydrogenase?

cytosol

5

Site of action of acetaldehyde dehydrogenase?

mitochondria

Southern blotting procedure

1. DNA sample enzymatically cleaved into smaller pieces, which are separated on a gel by electrophoresis, and then transferred to a filter.
2. Filter is exposed to radio labeled DNA probe that recognizes and anneals to its complementary strand.
3. Resulting doble-stranded, labeled piece of DNA is visualized when filter is exposed to the film.
