What is DAG?
Stabilizes microtubules, blocking cell division
Interacts with hormone; determines ligand specificity
Molecular motor that takes cargo to center of cell
Growth by the addition of monomers

An assay with actin over myosin
Monomer concentration [m] at which the rate of monomer addition equals the rate of monomer loss.
Makes branch points on actin filaments and nucleates new filament growth.
The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.
A temporary protrusion of the surface of an ameboid cell for movement and feeding
Dynein that is used for cilliary and flagellar motion
Any device that changes some measurable quantity into another measurable quantity
Protein changes its shape in a way to where it no longer functions
Notable example of MTOC
Allow specific solutes to cross membrane
A substance can be called this if you can put one wavelength in and get a different wavelength out
A large chunk of the microtubule disassembles rapidly
Actin filament stabilizer; leads to liver failure if ingested.
Basic subunit for filaments

Feeling of motion (spinning)
“Hump” to get over on its way to lower energy
Same enzyme doing basically the same reaction but in a different way
Oxidizes proteins in a more harmful and irreversible way
Incorrect tracking of the eye
Lend lateral strength to tissues, stable, they are not polar
Binds the relative cargo
