Proteins that transport solutes together
Microtubule based motors that are minus-end directed
Load bearing filaments
What SOD converts superoxide into
Growth by the addition of monomers
Something that binds to a receptor
Top of “hump” in energy diagram of reaction

Stacking by alternating between alpha and beta tubulins
A system that’s based in cytoskeleton of neurons that is responsible for transporting materials such as organelles, vesicles… etc.
Binds the relative cargo
Soda straw tubes, made out of tubulins, used for intracellular transport. Very stiff, grow from the + end
Basic subunit for filaments
Plus-end directed, toward the periphery
Type of drugs that treat cancer
Double membrane around the nucleus
Elimination of toxins
Protein changes its shape in a way to where it no longer functions
Dynein that is used for cilliary and flagellar motion
Allow specific solutes to cross membrane
Accelerates the movement of a solute down it’s electrochemical gradient
Made of actin and actin-binding proteins, responsible for cell shape, contraction, motility, and cellular transport
Causes disassembly of microtubules

Protein constituents know how to orient themselves to create the cytoskeleton via long filaments
Breaking apart water (hydrolysis) in the process of breaking protein chains
Allow very specific ions to cross membranes by creating a channel/tunnel through the cell membrane
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
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
Notable example of MTOC
Other proteins or molecules that are necessary to keep the enzyme activated
What is cAMP?
Rate of using ATP

A flattened extension of a cell, by which it moves over or adheres to a surface
Small molecules that convey the message from the receptor to the cell interior.
Dynein that is used for cargo transport
Microtubule based motors that are mostly plus-end directed
A large chunk of the microtubule disassembles rapidly
Relates time to the mean squared distance traveled
Due to multiple copies of a gene the effect of a gene can be enhanced
Molecular motor that takes cargo to center of cell
