Saliva contains enzymes that begin the digestive process. salt Sodium chloride (Na Cl); more broadly, any chemical compound composed of a positive ion other than hydrogen, and a negative ion, other than the hydroxyl group. A biologist who believes evolution is a saltatory process. Generally, satellite DNA appears as separate bands because each band contains many copies of a specific highly repetitive sequence with a specific density due to its particular GC-to-AT ratio. During spermatogenesis, spermatozoa form in huge quantities within the seminiferous tubules of the testes. It has an oval, flattened head containing a haploid nucleus.

Inflammation of, and resulting damage to, the vertebrae. A supposed process — that has never actually been observed — in which living things arise from nonliving matter.
