* A Receptor: Monitors a controlled condition, change in condition = stimulus change.
* Control Center: Determines next action
* Effector: Recieves directions from CC and produces a response that changes the controlled condition.
O (oxygen), C (carbon), H (hydrogen), N (nitrogen), S, P (phosphate), Ca (calcium), K (potassium), Na (sodium), Cl
What is a covalent bond?
Solutions: Homoegenous- gases, liquids or solids. Particles are tiny, don't settle or scatter light
Ex: Mineral water
Heterogenous - Don't settle, but do scatter light.
Heterogenous - Large solutes that settle.
Ex: Sand, blood.
1) Has a lot of heat absorption to change temperature
2) Takes heat absorption to change states
3) Polar Solvent - A lot of chemicals can be dissolved
4) Reactive - Is involved in chemical reactions
*contain carbon* Carbs, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids.
Monomers join to make polymers[chain like molecules made of similiar/repeating units (monomer)] by dehydration synthesis
Define protein denaturation
1-2% of cell mass. Used for energy and structural support.
Monomers: 1 sugar: Glucose+fructose
Polymers: + sugars: Chains of monosaccharides.
Golbular proteins act as biological catalytst [regulate/accelerate rate of biochemical reactions]
"Traffic cops" keep metabolic pathways open.
Store genetic info, CHNO+P
Monomer unit: Nucleotides: 5 carbon sugar, nitrogenous base, phosphate group.
Single strand, AUGC, ribose
DNA -> RNA -> translating to make proteins.
1) Basic structure of all living things
2) Activity of organisms depends on individual/group activities of cells
3) Structure/function are complementary
4) Continuity of life from each generation has a cellular basis
1) Simple diffusion: nonpolar/lipid soluble subs diffuse directly
2) Faciliated Diffusion: Sugars, AA transported passively, not through lipid bilayer. Binds to protein carrier/moves through water protein.
3) Ions and proteins pass through aqueous channels.
4) Osmosis: Diffusion of solvent passes through lipid bilayer.
Is a measure of a solutions ability to change the volume of cells by altering their water concentration.
Isotonic: Happy, normal
Hypotonic: Solution is dilute, plumps rapidly as water rushes in, can burst (lysis)
Hypertonic: Loses water, shrinks, crenation
Segment of DNA that carries information for creating one polypeptide chain.
A,T,G,C = letters that make up words
Triplets = Words
Sequence = Sentence
** Every cell has same genes but different proteins.
1) mRNA is synthesized in nucleus, leaves nucleus and attaches to a ribosome.
2) Translation begins as incoming tRNA recognizes complementary codon at a site on ribosome. Hbonds to codon by anitcodon
3) Ribosome moves along mRNA, each codon is read, new AA is added to protein chain, tRNA in A site is translocated to Psite.
4) AA is released from Psite tRNA is attached to Esite/released from cytoplasm. Polypeptide is released when STOP is read.
Words From Our Students
"StudyBlue is great for studying. I love the study guides, flashcards, and quizzes. So extremely helpful for all of my classes!"
Alice, Arizona State University
"I'm a student using StudyBlue, and I can 100% say that it helps me so much. Study materials for almost every subject in school are available in StudyBlue. It is so helpful for my education!"
Tim, University of Florida
"StudyBlue provides way more features than other studying apps, and thus allows me to learn very quickly! I actually feel much more comfortable taking my exams after I study with this app. It's amazing!"
Jennifer, Rutgers University
"I love flashcards but carrying around physical flashcards is cumbersome and simply outdated. StudyBlue is exactly what I was looking for!"
