What is Ca2+?
The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.

Too many copies of genes
Load bearing filaments
Soda straw tubes, made out of tubulins, used for intracellular transport. Very stiff, grow from the + end
What enzymes act upon
Dynein that is used for cargo transport
Actin filament stabilizer; leads to liver failure if ingested.
Due to multiple copies of a gene the effect of a gene can be enhanced
Proteins that exchange solutes
Molecular motor that takes cargo to periphery of cell
Other proteins or molecules that are necessary to keep the enzyme activated
Turn things off
An assay with kinesin or dynein and microtubules
Turn things on
Cause unknown in terms of ALS
Microtubule based motors that are minus-end directed
Relates time to the mean squared distance traveled
Copying DNA into RNA
What is DAG?
Altered vision and confusion
Binds and hydrolyzes GTP
Energy bearing compound

Basic subunit for filaments
One event makes tons of second messengers
Faces inside world of body
Makes branch points on actin filaments and nucleates new filament growth.
Normal though harmful byproduct of oxidative metabolism
Something that binds to a receptor
Protein constituents know how to orient themselves to create the cytoskeleton via long filaments
What is cAMP?
Monomer buffer
Growth by the addition of monomers
Maximum amount of force a motor can generate
Stacking by alternating between alpha and beta tubulins
The folded bits in the mitochondria
