Mitosis is the process of cell division for the purpose of cell regeneration. A parent cell duplicates its DNA and separates into two daughter cells which are identical to the parent and have two sets of chromosomes (2n).
Meiosis is the process of cell division for the purpose of gamete production. A single parent cell duplicates its DNA and undergoes two cycles of division in order to produce four daughter cells, which are all unlike the parent cell. The products of meiosis only have one set of chromosomes (n).see more
Saturated fatty acids do not have any carbon-carbon double bonds and are therefore linear molecules.
Monosaturated fatty acids have one carbon-carbon double bond, creating one kink in the otherwise linear molecule.
Polysaturated fatty acids have multiple carbon-carbon double bonds, creating multiple kinks in the molecule.
Saturated fatty acids have higher melting temperatures than unsaturated fatty acids, as they are able to pack together lengthwise, increasing the Van Der Waals forces between the molecules. The kinks in the unsaturated fatty acids prevent the molecules from packing together, meaning that they are liquid at room temperature.see more
