Ca(2+)-Transporting ATPase, Enzyme Commission 7.2.2.10

  The H(+)-Transporting ATP Synthase , Enzyme Commission 7.1.2.2 was the topic of an earlier blog post.  Here I present the Ca(2+)-Transporting ATPase, Enzyme Commission 7.2.2.10,  As shown in the above diagram, it is part of the “sarcoplasmic reticulum”, and a membrane protein of the plasma membrane as well.  On the  Roche Biochemical webpage it … Continue reading Ca(2+)-Transporting ATPase, Enzyme Commission 7.2.2.10

H(+)-Transporting ATP Synthase, Enzyme Commission 7.1.2.2

The Na-K ATPase [Enzyme Commission 7.2.2.13] was the topic of earlier blog post. Here I present the H(+)-Transporting ATP Synthase, Enzyme Commission 7.1.2.2.  As shown in the diagram above, it is part of “respiratory chain” and “oxidative phosphorylation”.  In the Roche Biochemical webpage  it is located at “P” (shown in the diagram above) , and … Continue reading H(+)-Transporting ATP Synthase, Enzyme Commission 7.1.2.2

"Element Electron Configuration & Periodicity".

Gold is element number 79 with symbol “Au”.  The observed electron configuration of “Au” gold is: {Xe core] 4f 14 5d 10 6s1.  Instead of classical physics: [Xe core] 4f 14 5d 9 6s 2.       The difference between the two formula is the “6s” orbital is 2 and “filled” in classical chemistry.  … Continue reading "Element Electron Configuration & Periodicity".

Element Electron Configuration Taste Traits.

Jean Brillat-Savarin, “The Physiology of Taste”, 1825 was the topic of an another blog post. Four basic human taste: 1. acidity, 2. salinity, 3. bitterness and 4. sweetness are given by Jean Brillat-Savarin. These four taste traits are usually explained in the language of chemistry.   In the table above, #1 H+ hydrogen cation is … Continue reading Element Electron Configuration Taste Traits.
