Can you please describe to me the difference between a monosaccharide and polysaccharide?
Both monosaccharides and polysaccharides pertain to the molecular structure of carbohydrates. Whenever you see the term "--saccharide," think carbs! The difference between the two structures is that "Mono" or (1) refers to a single molecule. As an example, glucose is a monosaccharide. "Poly" refers to (Many) molecules or "more than one" molecule. A polysaccharide is made up of at least two monosaccharides. Examples of polysaccharides include starch and cellulose. If you need a greater description, please do not hesitate to respond. I hope this helps!
Can you please provide me a description of a "Reference" page?
A "Reference" page often pertains to APA (American Psychological Association) Format. Before reading any further, ensure that you want a "Reference" page because other forms of citing like MLA Format, refers to their list of sources as a "Works Cited" page. Check out the link I have provided below via the Owl Purdue Website. I use this site constantly for my papers because I find it very helpful. This site will answer 99% of your questions. https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/05/ A few notes to keep in mind when constructing your Works Cited page: 1. PAY ATTENTION to periods, commas or any type of punctuation. Your teacher/professor will be scrutinizing this. 2. Always list author's last name, then first initial. EX: Bombard, K. 3. Always list your citations in alphabetical order by last name. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I hope this helps!
Can you please describe the function and importance of Normal Flora?
Normal Flora is small microbes or tiny organisms that can be found on and within the body. Every human being or animal has normal flora that is specific to their body. Interestingly, if humans and animals did not have normal flora, they would grow very sick and have a difficult time surviving. Think of normal flora as microscopic "good" bugs that live on human's skin and in their gut. These microscopic bugs help to keep away "bad" bacteria and sometimes, even produce nutritional value for humans. For instance, normal flora found within the gut is a consistent source of Vitamin B (This is why yogurt... which contains normal flora... is good for you!). If normal flora were to remove from a human, the human would grow very ill. For instance, chemotherapy has the ability to harm normal flora. Chemotherapy patients and their doctors must ensure that their normal flora remain unharmed otherwise greater complications can take place as the absence of normal flora can relate to imbalances in the body's ratio of acid: base, hinder the body's ability for nutritional absorption and even, lead to the need of a fecal transplant.
