    Hey! Entomology is not very complicated but there is a lot to know. I hope you get the basic idea from these videos. If you need more help in specific area like Rigor Mortis and the factors that affect it, just ask.

    Ahh, thank you so much, I will surely have a look at them!!

    Just to confirm, Rigor Mortis occurs when there is no aerobic respiration going on, and then after time, anaerobic respiration stop occurring leading to stiffness and rigidity of muscles ?

    Rigor Mortis is basically affected by the amount of ATP in a body. After a person is dead, the amount of ATP synthesized decreases even though the muscle cells respire anaerobically for sometime. ATP is need to relax the muscles in a relaxed state (refer to actin and myosin movement), hence as ATP supply decreases, the muscles begin to stiffen more. Hope that helps.

    How and when does 'peptidyl transferase' helps in translation?
    Isn't in the book really but comes up in mark scheme so often!

    I looked it up on wiki : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peptidyl_transferase

    Could you please refer me to the specific papers that this comes across? I haven't really heard of this.

    I never actually got anything from wiki!
    Do you think it helps in formation of peptide bonds b/w adjacent amino acids? :3

    That really helped x :heart::hugs:
    And if you don't mind could you please explain me the process of phagocytosis ('cuz I just discovered that it involves b-cells and antibodies and now I'm dead!)

    Sure! Do you know how the humoral response works?
