What does cAMP activate?
Growth by the addition of monomers

Altered vision and confusion
Monomer concentration [m] at which the rate of monomer addition equals the rate of monomer loss.
Oxidizes proteins in a more harmful and irreversible way
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
What is DAG?
Rate of using ATP
Relates time to the mean squared distance traveled
Away from the middle

Feeling of motion (spinning)
Connecting a hormone to a very specific effector
Microtubule based motors that are mostly plus-end directed
Molecular sized apparatus that converts energy to work
Protein changes its shape in a way to where it no longer functions
Dynein that is used for cilliary and flagellar motion
A flattened extension of a cell, by which it moves over or adheres to a surface
Soda straw tubes, made out of tubulins, used for intracellular transport. Very stiff, grow from the + end

What SOD converts superoxide into
Shuttle that promotes nucleotide exchange
Actin filament stabilizer; leads to liver failure if ingested.
Acts on ATP to strip off two phosphates turning it into cAMP
Any of various pathologic changes seen in living organisms in response to excessive levels of cytotoxic oxidants and free radicals in the environment.
What is cAMP?
A large chunk of the microtubule disassembles rapidly
The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.
