Basics of Biology III

Enzymes and Animal Cells

What is the importance and function of enzymes? The lock-and-key principle is explained and, based on amylase and katalase, the dependence of reaction speed and intensity of effect on temperature and pH-value can be seen. With microscopic pictures and graphs the structure of animal cells is explained. But their appearance is very different depending on their functions. Nerve cells differ from blood cells just like the latter from sperm cells. A tissue is a combination of many cells that perform specific functions in the body. Any kind of growth of an organism is only possible when new cells are created. The process of cell division is called mitosis. This is then differentiated from the multiplication of reproductive cells, as in them the number of chromosomes must be reduced to half. Impressive shots and graphs illustrate these processes. Together with the extensive accompanying material the DVD is ideally suited for use in the classroom.
