A substance can be called this if you can put one wavelength in and get a different wavelength out
What is DAG?
Key activator of Arp2/3 that is itself activated by G protein coupled receptors.
A temporary protrusion of the surface of an ameboid cell for movement and feeding
Speed of movement
Other proteins or molecules that are necessary to keep the enzyme activated
Microtubule based motors that are minus-end directed
The folded bits in the mitochondria
Any of various pathologic changes seen in living organisms in response to excessive levels of cytotoxic oxidants and free radicals in the environment.
Exchanges three sodium ions OUT and two potassium ions IN utilizing one ATP (ATP releases a P, becomes ADP, causes pump to open)
Actin filament stabilizer; leads to liver failure if ingested.
A system that’s based in cytoskeleton of neurons that is responsible for transporting materials such as organelles, vesicles… etc.
What is cAMP?
Dynein that is used for cargo transport
Interacts with hormone; determines ligand specificity
Allows a reaction to go faster
Altered vision and confusion
Determines G protein specificity
Where a specific kind of RNA (ribosomal) is being made
There is a limit as to how fast an enzyme can go; one substrate move in and products move out before the next substrate moves in

Proteins that exchange solutes
One event makes tons of second messengers
A flattened extension of a cell, by which it moves over or adheres to a surface
Dynein that is used for cilliary and flagellar motion
Load bearing filaments
Notable example of MTOC
Normal though harmful byproduct of oxidative metabolism

A motor is called this if it can walk continuously along a filament without falling off
What is Ca2+?
Causes disassembly of microtubules
Protein changes its shape in a way to where it no longer functions
Accelerates the movement of a solute down it’s electrochemical gradient
Molecular sized apparatus that converts energy to work
What is IP3?
Maximum amount of force a motor can generate
The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.
Due to multiple copies of a gene the effect of a gene can be enhanced
Molecular motor that takes cargo to center of cell
Turn things on
Handles Oxidative stress in the body.
Allow very specific ions to cross membranes by creating a channel/tunnel through the cell membrane
Allow specific solutes to cross membrane
An assay with actin over myosin
Monomer buffer
Proteins that transport solutes together
