Use these Biology and Biochemistry videos entitled The Chemistry of Nucleic Acids, Buffers, Protein Synthesis and Enzymes to study Nucleic Acids and also buffers as conjugate acid-base systems and review the Henderson-Hasselbach equation.

Use these 4 online educational video titles to also examine the basic types of RNA; the structure and function of ribosomes; and the process of photosynthesis. Learn the basic principles of enzyme action, types of reactions, energetic mechanisms of enzyme action, and equilibrium.

Learning Objectives:

  • Examine the chemical structure of DNA and RNA molecules, and describe the unique roles of these two forms of nucleic acids in cellular processes.
  • Survey the properties of the amino, carbonyl, carboxyl, and hydroxyl functional groups.
  • Examine the function of conjugate bases and acids in buffer systems.
  • Describe what happens to the ratio of conjugate base to acid when a strong acid is added to a buffer, and explain how a buffer's ratio is affected by the addition of a strong base.
  • Discuss the function and chemical makeup of enzymes.
  • Identify seven features common to all enzymes Name four general classes of reactions governed by enzymes.
  • Explain the function of metabolism and discuss the role of light and the kinetic energy of moving molecules as two principal sources of activation energy for reactions Examine the complex process of protein synthesis, gaining insight to the cellular components and activities involved in the construction of proteins within the cell.
