Made of actin and actin-binding proteins, responsible for cell shape, contraction, motility, and cellular transport
A substance can be called this if you can put one wavelength in and get a different wavelength out
Maximum amount of force a motor can generate
Amount of time spent generating force

Cause unknown in terms of ALS
Binds and hydrolyzes GTP
Stacking by alternating between alpha and beta tubulins

Rate of using ATP
The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.
Elimination of toxins
Shuttle that promotes nucleotide exchange
Molecular sized apparatus that converts energy to work
The folded bits in the mitochondria
One event makes tons of second messengers
Molecular motor that takes cargo to center of cell
Load bearing filaments
Exchanges three sodium ions OUT and two potassium ions IN utilizing one ATP (ATP releases a P, becomes ADP, causes pump to open)
Protein changes its shape in a way to where it no longer functions
Faces inside world of body
Dynein that is used for cilliary and flagellar motion

Copying DNA into RNA
Double membrane around the nucleus
Oxidizes proteins in a more harmful and irreversible way
Control where microtubules form and they bypass the time for nucleation.
A system that’s based in cytoskeleton of neurons that is responsible for transporting materials such as organelles, vesicles… etc.
Using RNA as a template for making protein
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
Dynein that is used for cargo transport
Protein that forms filaments for muscle contraction
Allow very specific ions to cross membranes by creating a channel/tunnel through the cell membrane

Same enzyme doing basically the same reaction but in a different way
Breaking apart water (hydrolysis) in the process of breaking protein chains
Connecting a hormone to a very specific effector
Speed of movement
Proteins that transport solutes together
Lend lateral strength to tissues, stable, they are not polar
Stabilize nerve axons by maintaining girth
What does cAMP activate?
Incorrect tracking of the eye
Break protein chains through hydrolysis (breaking apart water)
What SOD converts superoxide into
Notable example of MTOC
Microtubule based motors that are mostly plus-end directed
Normal though harmful byproduct of oxidative metabolism

Allows a reaction to go faster
Soda straw tubes, made out of tubulins, used for intracellular transport. Very stiff, grow from the + end
Basic subunit for filaments
Away from the middle
Top of “hump” in energy diagram of reaction
Faces outside world
