Go to A Versatile, Inquiry-Based Enzyme Lab: The Inhibition of Acetylcholinesterase from Bean Beetles by an Organophosphate Insecticide and Factors that Modulate this Inhibition
A Versatile, Inquiry-Based Enzyme Lab: The Inhibition of Acetylcholinesterase from Bean Beetles by an Organophosphate Insecticide and Factors that Modulate this Inhibition
Here we expand on an enzyme lab that can lend itself to a multi-session investigative approach. We use a colorimetric enzyme assay to look at the inhibitory effect of the organophosphate insecticide ...

Go to Are You A Hidden Heterozygote? Use of PCR to Genotype Brown Vs. Blue Eye Color Alleles
Are You A Hidden Heterozygote? Use of PCR to Genotype Brown Vs. Blue Eye Color Alleles
Alleles that differ by a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) can be detected and genotyped by PCR. The difference between blue vs. brown eyes is one such SNP and we have designed PCR primers to deter...
