Shell of molluscs is derived from
Molluscs are the soft bodied, unsegmented animals covered by a shell. Mantle is the dorsal body wall which covers the organs of digestion, reproduction and movement. In between the shell and body wall is a covering called mantle, which secretes the shell.
Action potential is generated by
Action potential refers to the electrical potential difference across an axon membrane, that is stimulated (action). Action potential is generated by Na+.
It occurs when the membrane potential of a specific axon location rapidly rises and falls. And this depolarisation leads to the adjacent locations to similary depolarize.
Ligament is mainly made up of
Ligament is a tough cord or fibrous band of dense regular connective tissue that contains numerous parallel arrangements of collagen fibres. It connects bones or cartilages and serves to strengthen joints.
Mitotic spindle have main protein
The mitotic spindle is a highly dynamic molecular machine composed of tubulin, motors and other molecules. It assembles around the chromosomes and distributes the duplicated genome to the daughter cells during mitosis.
Microtubules are unbranched, hollow, sub- microscopic tubules, which form the structural material of cilia, flagella, basal bodies, centrioles and spindle apparatus. They are built up protofilaments, formed of two related proteins, and - tubulins.

Crossing over occurs in
Crossing over, ie, exchange of segments between non- sister chromatids of homologous chromosome occurs in pachytene stage of Prophase- I of Meiosis- I.
Secretion of pancreatic juice is stimulated by
The secretion of Pancreatic juice is stimulated by secretin and cholecystokinin (CCK). Both the hormones are secreted in response to different stimuli and have different effects on the composition of pancreatic juice.
Connecting link between annelids and molluscs is
Neopilina (mollusc) is considered as a connecting link between Annelida and Mollusca.
A man of 'A' blood group marries a woman of 'AB' blood group. Which type of progeny would indicate that man is heterozygous?
In this case, progeny with blood group- B is produced only when man is heterozygous, ie, IAIO.
Aqueous and vitreous humour are divided by
Lens is a transparent, biconvex, elastic structure that bends light waves as they pass through its surface. The lens separates the aqueous and vitreous humours.
