Determines G protein specificity
Maximum amount of force a motor can generate
A large chunk of the microtubule disassembles rapidly
Plus-end directed, toward the periphery
An assay with kinesin or dynein and microtubules
The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.
Relates time to the mean squared distance traveled
The filling in the mitochondria
Breaking apart water (hydrolysis) in the process of breaking protein chains
Made of actin and actin-binding proteins, responsible for cell shape, contraction, motility, and cellular transport
A flattened extension of a cell, by which it moves over or adheres to a surface
Notable example of MTOC
Molecular motor that takes cargo to center of cell
Type of drugs that treat cancer
A substance can be called this if you can put one wavelength in and get a different wavelength out
Makes branch points on actin filaments and nucleates new filament growth.
Handles Oxidative stress in the body.
Accelerates the movement of a solute down it’s electrochemical gradient
A motor is called this if it can walk continuously along a filament without falling off
Lend lateral strength to tissues, stable, they are not polar
Key activator of Arp2/3 that is itself activated by G protein coupled receptors.
Altered vision and confusion
The folded bits in the mitochondria
Microtubule based motors that are mostly plus-end directed
Amount of time spent generating force
Oxidizes proteins in a more harmful and irreversible way
Due to multiple copies of a gene the effect of a gene can be enhanced
Faces inside world of body
Speed of movement
Allows a reaction to go faster
Binds the relative cargo
Top of “hump” in energy diagram of reaction
A temporary protrusion of the surface of an ameboid cell for movement and feeding
Exchanges three sodium ions OUT and two potassium ions IN utilizing one ATP (ATP releases a P, becomes ADP, causes pump to open)
New growth off of the main actin filament
Normal though harmful byproduct of oxidative metabolism
Force x distance
Away from the middle
Too many copies of genes
“Hump” to get over on its way to lower energy
An assay with actin over myosin
Double membrane around the nucleus
Allow specific solutes to cross membrane
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 Ca2+?
Soda straw tubes, made out of tubulins, used for intracellular transport. Very stiff, grow from the + end
Microtubule based motors that are minus-end directed
Molecular motor that takes cargo to periphery of cell
Load bearing filaments
Dynein that is used for cargo transport
What is DAG?
Growth by the addition of monomers
Acts on ATP to strip off two phosphates turning it into cAMP
Connecting a hormone to a very specific effector
Actin filament stabilizer; leads to liver failure if ingested.
Monomer concentration [m] at which the rate of monomer addition equals the rate of monomer loss.
What SOD converts superoxide into
Protein that forms filaments for muscle contraction
Break protein chains through hydrolysis (breaking apart water)
Protein changes its shape in a way to where it no longer functions
Two different proteins stuck together
Interacts with hormone; determines ligand specificity
