How to Play
Protein constituents know how to orient themselves to create the cytoskeleton via long filaments
Any device that changes some measurable quantity into another measurable quantity
A motor is called this if it can walk continuously along a filament without falling off
Where a specific kind of RNA (ribosomal) is being made
An assay with actin over myosin
What is Ca2+?
Speed of movement
Due to multiple copies of a gene the effect of a gene can be enhanced
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
Maximum amount of force a motor can generate
Protein changes its shape in a way to where it no longer functions
A temporary protrusion of the surface of an ameboid cell for movement and feeding
Faces outside world
Plus-end directed, toward the periphery
Load bearing filaments
Monomer buffer
Stabilize nerve axons by maintaining girth
Feeling of motion (spinning)
What does cAMP activate?
Protein that forms filaments for muscle contraction
What enzymes act upon
Shuttle that promotes nucleotide exchange
Shut down mitosis
Portion that is connected to filament
What is cAMP?
Handles Oxidative stress in the body.
Type of drugs that treat cancer
Two different proteins stuck together
Acts on ATP to strip off two phosphates turning it into cAMP
Monomer concentration [m] at which the rate of monomer addition equals the rate of monomer loss.
Stacking by alternating between alpha and beta tubulins
Key activator of Arp2/3 that is itself activated by G protein coupled receptors.
Energy bearing compound
Oxidizes proteins in a more harmful and irreversible way
The filling in the mitochondria
Made of actin and actin-binding proteins, responsible for cell shape, contraction, motility, and cellular transport
Molecular motor that takes cargo to periphery of cell
Accelerates the movement of a solute down it’s electrochemical gradient
A large chunk of the microtubule disassembles rapidly
New growth off of the main actin filament
Rate of using ATP
Causes disassembly of microtubules
“Hump” to get over on its way to lower energy
The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.
Dynein that is used for cargo transport
An assay with kinesin or dynein and microtubules
Allows a reaction to go faster
Makes branch points on actin filaments and nucleates new filament growth.
Actin filament stabilizer; leads to liver failure if ingested.
Relates time to the mean squared distance traveled
A system that’s based in cytoskeleton of neurons that is responsible for transporting materials such as organelles, vesicles… etc.
Microtubule based motors that are mostly plus-end directed
Other proteins or molecules that are necessary to keep the enzyme activated
Force x distance
Turn things off
Notable example of MTOC
What is IP3?
Lend lateral strength to tissues, stable, they are not polar
Same enzyme doing basically the same reaction but in a different way
What SOD converts superoxide into
Break protein chains through hydrolysis (breaking apart water)
One event makes tons of second messengers
Binds and hydrolyzes GTP
Using RNA as a template for making protein
Control where microtubules form and they bypass the time for nucleation.
Growth by the addition of monomers
Microtubule based motors that are minus-end directed
Basic subunit for filaments
Turn things on
Double membrane around the nucleus
Molecular motor that takes cargo to center of cell
Allow specific solutes to cross membrane
Allow very specific ions to cross membranes by creating a channel/tunnel through the cell membrane
Soda straw tubes, made out of tubulins, used for intracellular transport. Very stiff, grow from the + end
The folded bits in the mitochondria
Molecular sized apparatus that converts energy to work

Proteins that transport solutes together
Incorrect tracking of the eye
A flattened extension of a cell, by which it moves over or adheres to a surface
A substance can be called this if you can put one wavelength in and get a different wavelength out
Dynein that is used for cilliary and flagellar motion
Elimination of toxins
Interacts with hormone; determines ligand specificity
Stabilizes microtubules, blocking cell division
Exchanges three sodium ions OUT and two potassium ions IN utilizing one ATP (ATP releases a P, becomes ADP, causes pump to open)
What is DAG?
Faces inside world of body
Cause unknown in terms of ALS
Something that binds to a receptor
Determines G protein specificity
Normal though harmful byproduct of oxidative metabolism
Proteins that exchange solutes
Any of various pathologic changes seen in living organisms in response to excessive levels of cytotoxic oxidants and free radicals in the environment.
Breaking apart water (hydrolysis) in the process of breaking protein chains
Copying DNA into RNA
Form the tonofilaments of epithelia, found in skin and hair
