Something that binds to a receptor
What SOD converts superoxide into
Protein constituents know how to orient themselves to create the cytoskeleton via long filaments
Control where microtubules form and they bypass the time for nucleation.
Relates time to the mean squared distance traveled
The folded bits in the mitochondria

Where a specific kind of RNA (ribosomal) is being made
Makes branch points on actin filaments and nucleates new filament growth.
Interacts with hormone; determines ligand specificity
Binds and hydrolyzes GTP
The filling in the mitochondria
Oxidizes proteins in a more harmful and irreversible way
Turn things on
One event makes tons of second messengers
Molecular motor that takes cargo to periphery of cell
Turn things off
Due to multiple copies of a gene the effect of a gene can be enhanced

A motor is called this if it can walk continuously along a filament without falling off
Maximum amount of force a motor can generate
Away from the middle
Stabilizes microtubules, blocking cell division
Lend lateral strength to tissues, stable, they are not polar
The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.
Load bearing filaments
A system that’s based in cytoskeleton of neurons that is responsible for transporting materials such as organelles, vesicles… etc.
An assay with kinesin or dynein and microtubules
Any of various pathologic changes seen in living organisms in response to excessive levels of cytotoxic oxidants and free radicals in the environment.
Break protein chains through hydrolysis (breaking apart water)
Monomer concentration [m] at which the rate of monomer addition equals the rate of monomer loss.
Stacking by alternating between alpha and beta tubulins
Proteins that exchange solutes
What does cAMP activate?
Binds the relative cargo
Notable example of MTOC
Accelerates the movement of a solute down it’s electrochemical gradient
Dynein that is used for cilliary and flagellar motion
Feeling of motion (spinning)
Basic subunit for filaments
Monomer buffer
Key activator of Arp2/3 that is itself activated by G protein coupled receptors.
Breaking apart water (hydrolysis) in the process of breaking protein chains
Proteins that transport solutes together
A temporary protrusion of the surface of an ameboid cell for movement and feeding
Faces outside world
