Polymer

Science / Biology / Polymer: Organic molecule composed of smaller units known as monomers. A large molecule composed of smaller subunits, for example starch is a polymer of glucose, proteins are polymers of amino acids.

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)

Science / Biology / Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR): A method of amplifying or copying DNA fragments that is faster than cloning. The fragments are combined with DNA polymerase, nucleotides, and other components to form a mixture in which the DNA is cyc MORE

Copolymer

Science / Chemistry / Copolymer: A polymer composed of two or more different monomers. The different monomers can be linked randomly, or in repeating sequences, or in blocks, or as side chains off the main chain. MORE

Polymer Tooth

Health / Dentistry / Polymer Tooth: 'Replica Tooth' Polyhydroxylethy1methacrylate (PMMA) alone or in combination with other polymers used to form an implant, shaped like a tooth root recently extracted and immediately placed into tooth' MORE

Polymerase (DNA Or RNA)

Science / Genetics / Polymerase (DNA Or RNA): Enzymes that catalyze the synthesis of nucleic acids on preexisting nucleic acid templates, assembling rna from ribonucleotides or dna from deoxyribonucleotides. MORE

Polymerase

Science / Genetics / Polymerase: Any enzyme that catalyzes the formation of dna or rna from deoxyribonucleotides or ribonucleotides. MORE

Polymerization

Science / Chemistry / Polymerization: A process that links smaller molecules together to form a larger molecule. MORE
