CSIR NET Life Science Mind Map: Molecules and Their Interaction Relevant to Biology, Download PDF!

By Renuka Miglani|Updated : November 26th, 2022

Aspirants preparing for the upcoming CSIR NET 2022 examination have to go through a lot of phases where it seems difficult to memorise and understand the concepts very well. While preparing for the CSIR NET Life Science 2022 Exam, the candidates might face problems in memorizing the function of a particular part of the cell. Mind maps are the answer to all your problems regarding memorising the concepts and information on a certain topic.

We at BYJU'S EXAM PREP have come up with the idea of providing the mind maps for all the units in the Life Science subject to make your preparation easy. These mind maps are developed by our subject experts considering the most important topics that the candidates need to prepare for the CSIR NET 2022 Exam. In this article, we have provided a detailed mind map for the topic of Molecules and Their Interaction Relevant to Biology which comes under Carbohydrate Catabolism and Carbon Skeleton for Amino Acid Biosynthesis in Life Science. 

Mind Map for Molecules and Their Interaction Relevant to Biology

Things to focus in this unit are -

  • The stabilizing bonds between macromolecules, e.g – proteins and DNA (Van der Waals forces, Hydrogen bonds, and hydrophobic interactions.
  • Amino acids structures and behaviour according to the different R groups, properties such as chirality and terms such as isoelectric point, pka values.
  • Protein conformations, dihedral bonds and Ramachandran plot, techniques to determine different conformations, and their sequencing.
  • Protein folding thermodynamics, denaturation and biological function
    Enzyme kinetics (Vmax, MM equation km) is a must to study, along with inhibition processes, graphical representations, and formulas.
  • Metabolic pathways of carbohydrates including glycolytic and TCA cycle steps, regulation (specially allosteric and feedback inhibition), enzymes cofactors involved and stoichiometry, ETC and ATP synthesis (along with inhibitors) (very important)
  • Numerical questions on molarity, pH buffer and thermodynamics (delta G calculation in various cellular processes).
  • Carbohydrate structure (concentrate on epimers, anomers, glycosidic bond formation and type of bond between di and polysaccharides, Glycosaminoglycan examples and function)
  • Lipid structure with special emphasis on membrane lipids and adaptation to temperature
    Nucleic acid topology (Twist, Writhe, Linking number) and structure and nucleotide biosynthesis
