How to Play
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
Turn things on

Acts on ATP to strip off two phosphates turning it into cAMP

Force x distance
Interacts with hormone; determines ligand specificity
What is Ca2+?
Amount of time spent generating force
Made of actin and actin-binding proteins, responsible for cell shape, contraction, motility, and cellular transport
Form the tonofilaments of epithelia, found in skin and hair
Top of “hump” in energy diagram of reaction
Break protein chains through hydrolysis (breaking apart water)
Monomer concentration [m] at which the rate of monomer addition equals the rate of monomer loss.
Cause unknown in terms of ALS
The filling in the mitochondria
Speed of movement
Something that binds to a receptor
Rate of using ATP

Molecular motor that takes cargo to periphery of cell
Allow specific solutes to cross membrane
What is cAMP?
Causes disassembly of microtubules
Allow very specific ions to cross membranes by creating a channel/tunnel through the cell membrane
Basic subunit for filaments
Dynein that is used for cilliary and flagellar motion
Any of various pathologic changes seen in living organisms in response to excessive levels of cytotoxic oxidants and free radicals in the environment.
Connecting a hormone to a very specific effector
Protein constituents know how to orient themselves to create the cytoskeleton via long filaments
Length one step of a motor makes
Elimination of toxins
Molecular motor that takes cargo to center of cell

Monomer buffer
Same enzyme doing basically the same reaction but in a different way
The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.
One event makes tons of second messengers
Exchanges three sodium ions OUT and two potassium ions IN utilizing one ATP (ATP releases a P, becomes ADP, causes pump to open)
A motor is called this if it can walk continuously along a filament without falling off
Oxidizes proteins in a more harmful and irreversible way
Binds and hydrolyzes GTP
Protein that forms filaments for muscle contraction
Any device that changes some measurable quantity into another measurable quantity
An assay with actin over myosin
A substance can be called this if you can put one wavelength in and get a different wavelength out
What SOD converts superoxide into
Accelerates the movement of a solute down it’s electrochemical gradient
“Hump” to get over on its way to lower energy
Feeling of motion (spinning)
The folded bits in the mitochondria
Double membrane around the nucleus
Stacking by alternating between alpha and beta tubulins
Away from the middle
Handles Oxidative stress in the body.
What is DAG?
A temporary protrusion of the surface of an ameboid cell for movement and feeding

Plus-end directed, toward the periphery
Small molecules that convey the message from the receptor to the cell interior.
Shuttle that promotes nucleotide exchange
Portion that is connected to filament
