Binds and hydrolyzes GTP
Maximum amount of force a motor can generate
Portion that is connected to filament
Form the tonofilaments of epithelia, found in skin and hair
Force x distance
Lend lateral strength to tissues, stable, they are not polar
What is IP3?
Soda straw tubes, made out of tubulins, used for intracellular transport. Very stiff, grow from the + end
What SOD converts superoxide into
A large chunk of the microtubule disassembles rapidly
Molecular sized apparatus that converts energy to work
Acts on ATP to strip off two phosphates turning it into cAMP
Breaking apart water (hydrolysis) in the process of breaking protein chains
Something that binds to a receptor
Interacts with hormone; determines ligand specificity
Small molecules that convey the message from the receptor to the cell interior.
A substance can be called this if you can put one wavelength in and get a different wavelength out
Handles Oxidative stress in the body.
Control where microtubules form and they bypass the time for nucleation.
Determines G protein specificity
The beginning of chemical or physical changes at discrete points in a system. Helps the actin filaments start growing.
What enzymes act upon
Energy bearing compound
Relates time to the mean squared distance traveled

Connecting a hormone to a very specific effector
Length one step of a motor makes
Shut down mitosis
Protein constituents know how to orient themselves to create the cytoskeleton via long filaments
Exchanges three sodium ions OUT and two potassium ions IN utilizing one ATP (ATP releases a P, becomes ADP, causes pump to open)
The folded bits in the mitochondria
A system that’s based in cytoskeleton of neurons that is responsible for transporting materials such as organelles, vesicles… etc.
Load bearing filaments
What does cAMP activate?
Dynein that is used for cargo transport
An assay with kinesin or dynein and microtubules
A flattened extension of a cell, by which it moves over or adheres to a surface
Normal though harmful byproduct of oxidative metabolism
Feeling of motion (spinning)
Turn things off
Copying DNA into RNA
What is Ca2+?
Type of drugs that treat cancer
A temporary protrusion of the surface of an ameboid cell for movement and feeding
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
Growth by the addition of monomers
Proteins that transport solutes together
Accelerates the movement of a solute down it’s electrochemical gradient
Other proteins or molecules that are necessary to keep the enzyme activated
Monomer buffer
Allow very specific ions to cross membranes by creating a channel/tunnel through the cell membrane
Away from the middle
