Proteins that transport solutes together
Faces outside world
Proteins that exchange solutes
Allow specific solutes to cross membrane
Feeling of motion (spinning)
Other proteins or molecules that are necessary to keep the enzyme activated
An assay with actin over myosin
Protein constituents know how to orient themselves to create the cytoskeleton via long filaments
Maximum amount of force a motor can generate
Control where microtubules form and they bypass the time for nucleation.
Copying DNA into RNA
Allow very specific ions to cross membranes by creating a channel/tunnel through the cell membrane
Binds and hydrolyzes GTP
Shuttle that promotes nucleotide exchange

Basic subunit for filaments
Accelerates the movement of a solute down it’s electrochemical gradient
The folded bits in the mitochondria
Double membrane around the nucleus
Any of various pathologic changes seen in living organisms in response to excessive levels of cytotoxic oxidants and free radicals in the environment.
Microtubule based motors that are minus-end directed
Notable example of MTOC
Force x distance
Binds the relative cargo
Microtubule based motors that are mostly plus-end directed
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

Stabilizes microtubules, blocking cell division
Determines G protein specificity
Something that binds to a receptor
Plus-end directed, toward the periphery
Causes disassembly of microtubules
What is cAMP?
The filling in the mitochondria
Speed of movement
A motor is called this if it can walk continuously along a filament without falling off
Makes branch points on actin filaments and nucleates new filament growth.
Stabilize nerve axons by maintaining girth
Two different proteins stuck together
Turn things off
What SOD converts superoxide into
Oxidizes proteins in a more harmful and irreversible way
Breaking apart water (hydrolysis) in the process of breaking protein chains

An assay with kinesin or dynein and microtubules
Any device that changes some measurable quantity into another measurable quantity
“Hump” to get over on its way to lower energy
A large chunk of the microtubule disassembles rapidly
Exchanges three sodium ions OUT and two potassium ions IN utilizing one ATP (ATP releases a P, becomes ADP, causes pump to open)
