One event makes tons of second messengers
Too many copies of genes
Handles Oxidative stress in the body.
Protein that forms filaments for muscle contraction
Energy bearing compound
Same enzyme doing basically the same reaction but in a different way
The folded bits in the mitochondria
What is cAMP?
Type of drugs that treat cancer
Break protein chains through hydrolysis (breaking apart water)
The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.

Something that binds to a receptor
Using RNA as a template for making protein
Dynein that is used for cilliary and flagellar motion

Shut down mitosis
What enzymes act upon
A flattened extension of a cell, by which it moves over or adheres to a surface
Oxidizes proteins in a more harmful and irreversible way
Stabilizes microtubules, blocking cell division

Portion that is connected to filament
Made of actin and actin-binding proteins, responsible for cell shape, contraction, motility, and cellular transport

Speed of movement
Altered vision and confusion
Incorrect tracking of the eye

Faces outside world
Any of various pathologic changes seen in living organisms in response to excessive levels of cytotoxic oxidants and free radicals in the environment.
Where a specific kind of RNA (ribosomal) is being made
Force x distance
Protein changes its shape in a way to where it no longer functions
Away from the middle
Elimination of toxins
Molecular motor that takes cargo to periphery of cell

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
Proteins that exchange solutes

Binds and hydrolyzes GTP
Lend lateral strength to tissues, stable, they are not polar
Small molecules that convey the message from the receptor to the cell interior.
Turn things on
