  15. role of mRNA
    copies the genetic material and carries it to a ribosome for making a DNA copy on the backwards side
  16. how temperature affects enzyme function:
    enzymes have a preferred catalase temperature, where as if it gets too hot it'll get denatured for it shall not return to its former state again.
  17. some major functions of proteins:
    • enzyme
    • hormones
    • transport proteins such as hemoglobin
    • contractile proteins such as in muscle tissue
    • antibodies
    • membrane proteins
    • structural proteins like bones and muscles
  18. how enzymes work to break larger molecules into smaller ones
    • through digestion processes
    • ex. saliva, or stomach acids
  19. characteristics of diffusion
    • not limited to liquids
    • passive transport
    • requires no energy
    • from high-> low concentration
  20. Osmosis
    • Tries to get homeostasis
    • passive
    • requires no energy

  21. passive and active transport
    • Passive:

  26. 2 types of anaerobic respiration:
    alcohol and Lactic acid

    Alcohol applies to Bacteria and Lactic Acid applies to humans
  27. Image Upload 7what happens in Photosynthesis:
    • The Granum absorbs water and light and converts it into energy and oxygen 
    • The broken H+ is given to NADP and ADP making it into NADPH and ATP
    • then it goes to the Calvin Cycle (in the stroma) where it takes CO2 , NADPH and ATP and spins 6 times, to produce 1 molecule of sugar.
  28. Image Upload 8where is the Stroma, Granum, Thylakoid, and chlorophyll
    Image Upload 9 chlorophyll is inside the chloroplast
  29. Image Upload 10Image Upload 11Image Upload 12what happens during Cellular respiration:
    • Glycolysis:
    • glucose gets broken down into Pyruvic acids
    • 2 ATPs are formed

    • regenerates NAD+ so glycolysis can continue
    • Equation:
    • Lactic acid:
    • Pyruvic acid + NADH ----> Lactic acid + NAD+
    • Alcohol:
    • Pyruvic acid + NADH ---> alcohol+ CO2+NAD+
    • If Oxygen is Present:

    The Pyruvic Acids go to the Krebs Cycle where the carbon comes off, giving and H to an NAD and turning the C into CO2

    The 2 Carbon atoms are called Acetyl Co-A 

    Then the Acetyl-CoA joins a 4 carbon compound making it Citric Acid.

    The citric acid then loses one carbon, (again charging one NAD with an H) creating a 5 carbon atom

    Then the 5 carbon atom loses one carbon, again charging an NAD with H, creating more CO2 and forming an ATP, and a 4 carbon compound that repeats itself turning into citric acid when combined with Acetyl-CoA

    • 2 ATPs created
    • Electron Transport Chain:

    The NADH that has been charged comes and drops the H+ ions off where the ATP synthase shoots them out creating ATP

    • Total you have: 36 ATPs created
  30. DNA Polymerase
    joins individual nucleotides to produce a DNA molecule
  31. Cell cycle

    • G1- cell growth
    • S- cell DNA replicates
    • G2- Prepares for mitosis
    • M- Cell Division
  32. if the parent cell had 23 chomosomes, the 500 daughter cells will have ____ chromosomes
  33. main causes of cancer
    smoking, UV exposure, genetics
  34. Diploid and Haploid
    Haploid: Sperm and egg, contain 23 chromosomes each and they make a

    Diploid- which contains 46 chromosomes
  35. biological molecules:
    What is their molecules consistency
    what is an example:
    Nucleic Acids
    • Carb:
    • Sugar
    • CHO 1:2:1 ratio

    • Lipids:
    • Fats/ oils
    • (saturated- solid, Unsaturated- liquid)
    • the saturated is full out straight
    • and the unsaturated has a bend on the end of the fatty acid chain, because it has a double carbon bond.

    • Proteins: CHON
    • amino acids

    • Nucleic Acids: CHONP
    • DNA and RNA
