Copying DNA into RNA
Top of “hump” in energy diagram of reaction
Allows a reaction to go faster

Away from the middle
Notable example of MTOC
Interacts with hormone; determines ligand specificity
What is IP3?
Control where microtubules form and they bypass the time for nucleation.
Connecting a hormone to a very specific effector
A system that’s based in cytoskeleton of neurons that is responsible for transporting materials such as organelles, vesicles… etc.
Actin filament stabilizer; leads to liver failure if ingested.
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
Amount of time spent generating force
An assay with kinesin or dynein and microtubules
Plus-end directed, toward the periphery

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.

The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.
Feeling of motion (spinning)
Elimination of toxins
Stacking by alternating between alpha and beta tubulins
A flattened extension of a cell, by which it moves over or adheres to a surface
Microtubule based motors that are minus-end directed
Something that binds to a receptor

Form the tonofilaments of epithelia, found in skin and hair
Growth by the addition of monomers
Dynein that is used for cilliary and flagellar motion
Molecular motor that takes cargo to periphery of cell
Lend lateral strength to tissues, stable, they are not polar
Rate of using ATP
Faces inside world of body
Makes branch points on actin filaments and nucleates new filament growth.
What SOD converts superoxide into
Molecular sized apparatus that converts energy to work
Oxidizes proteins in a more harmful and irreversible way
Proteins that transport solutes together
Other proteins or molecules that are necessary to keep the enzyme activated
Breaking apart water (hydrolysis) in the process of breaking protein chains
Altered vision and confusion
Protein that forms filaments for muscle contraction
Maximum amount of force a motor can generate
Speed of movement
What is DAG?
Shuttle that promotes nucleotide exchange
What is Ca2+?
Protein constituents know how to orient themselves to create the cytoskeleton via long filaments
Force x distance
Load bearing filaments
Made of actin and actin-binding proteins, responsible for cell shape, contraction, motility, and cellular transport
Portion that is connected to filament
New growth off of the main actin filament
Allow very specific ions to cross membranes by creating a channel/tunnel through the cell membrane
Small molecules that convey the message from the receptor to the cell interior.
Handles Oxidative stress in the body.
An assay with actin over myosin
Shut down mitosis
Monomer concentration [m] at which the rate of monomer addition equals the rate of monomer loss.
What is cAMP?
Determines G protein specificity
Incorrect tracking of the eye
Accelerates the movement of a solute down it’s electrochemical gradient
