How to Play
The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.
Basic subunit for filaments
Cause unknown in terms of ALS
A system that’s based in cytoskeleton of neurons that is responsible for transporting materials such as organelles, vesicles… etc.
What enzymes act upon
Shut down mitosis
Exchanges three sodium ions OUT and two potassium ions IN utilizing one ATP (ATP releases a P, becomes ADP, causes pump to open)
Rate of using ATP
Accelerates the movement of a solute down it’s electrochemical gradient
What is IP3?
What is DAG?
Protein that forms filaments for muscle contraction
Protein changes its shape in a way to where it no longer functions
Something that binds to a receptor
New growth off of the main actin filament
Molecular motor that takes cargo to periphery of cell
An assay with actin over myosin
Speed of movement
Key activator of Arp2/3 that is itself activated by G protein coupled receptors.
Shuttle that promotes nucleotide exchange
Allow specific solutes to cross membrane
The filling in the mitochondria
Interacts with hormone; determines ligand specificity
Form the tonofilaments of epithelia, found in skin and hair
Any of various pathologic changes seen in living organisms in response to excessive levels of cytotoxic oxidants and free radicals in the environment.
Two different proteins stuck together
Allow very specific ions to cross membranes by creating a channel/tunnel through the cell membrane
Protein constituents know how to orient themselves to create the cytoskeleton via long filaments
A temporary protrusion of the surface of an ameboid cell for movement and feeding
Molecular sized apparatus that converts energy to work
Lend lateral strength to tissues, stable, they are not polar
Load bearing filaments
Oxidizes proteins in a more harmful and irreversible way
“Hump” to get over on its way to lower energy
Binds the relative cargo

What does cAMP activate?
What is cAMP?
Feeling of motion (spinning)
Soda straw tubes, made out of tubulins, used for intracellular transport. Very stiff, grow from the + end
Dynein that is used for cargo transport
Plus-end directed, toward the periphery
Actin filament stabilizer; leads to liver failure if ingested.
What is Ca2+?
Maximum amount of force a motor can generate
Incorrect tracking of the eye
Growth by the addition of monomers
Connecting a hormone to a very specific effector
Double membrane around the nucleus
Top of “hump” in energy diagram of reaction
Binds and hydrolyzes GTP
Other proteins or molecules that are necessary to keep the enzyme activated
Control where microtubules form and they bypass the time for nucleation.
Breaking apart water (hydrolysis) in the process of breaking protein chains
Turn things off
Faces inside world of body
Monomer concentration [m] at which the rate of monomer addition equals the rate of monomer loss.
Any device that changes some measurable quantity into another measurable quantity
Dynein that is used for cilliary and flagellar motion
An assay with kinesin or dynein and microtubules

Small molecules that convey the message from the receptor to the cell interior.
Made of actin and actin-binding proteins, responsible for cell shape, contraction, motility, and cellular transport
Faces outside world
A flattened extension of a cell, by which it moves over or adheres to a surface
Acts on ATP to strip off two phosphates turning it into cAMP
Proteins that transport solutes together
Makes branch points on actin filaments and nucleates new filament growth.
Causes disassembly of microtubules
Turn things on
Force x distance
Determines G protein specificity
Handles Oxidative stress in the body.
