... , an amino alcohol formed from palmitate and serine . The amino terminal is acylated with a by a long-chain acyl CoA to yield ceramide . Subsequent substitution of the terminal hydroxyl group by phosphatidyl choline forms sphingomyelin. ...

Adenosine triphosphate

... fatty acids . Initially glucose is broken down into pyruvate in the cytosol . Two molecules of ATP are generated for each molecule of glucose. The terminal stages of ATP synthesis are carried out in the mitochondrion and can generate up to 36 ATP. ATP in the human body The total quantity of ATP ...

Alcohol

... more details see #Chemistry of alcohols Nomenclature Systematic names In the IUPAC system, the name of the alkane chain loses the terminal "e" and adds "ol", e.g. "methanol" and "ethanol". When necessary, the position of the hydroxyl group is indicated by a number between the alkane ...

Antibody

... composed of one constant and one variable domain of each the heavy and the light chain, which together shape the antigen binding site at the amino terminal end of the monomer. The two variable domains bind the antigens they are specific for and that elicited their production. The ability to bind a ...

Cilium

... per cell. The outer segment of the rod photoreceptor cell in the human eye is connected to its cell body with a specialized non-motile cilium. The terminal fiber of the olfactory neuron is also a non-motile cilium, where the odorant receptors locate. Almost all types of the mammalian cells have a ...
