while acting as an antigen-presenting cell, it engulfs bacteria by phagycytosis and presents a fragment of the bacteria on the cell surface by an MHC II molecule
in flowering plants, these produce the ova
more than two allelic forms of a gene
a procedure that analyzes the size, number, and shape or chromosomes
a disc-shaped protein on the centromere that attaches the chromatid to the mitotic spindle during cell division
a measurable difference in electrical charge between the cytoplasm (negative ions) and the extracellular fluid (positive ions)
a sophisticated process in which the responses of the organism are modified as a result of experience
a type of learning that is responsible for the bonding between mother and offspring. common in birds, it occurs during a sensitive or critical period in early life

IAA. a naturally occurring auxin
hybrid vigor

substances that cause mutations
the development of an entirely new species

the part of the body of mollusks that contains specialized tissue that surrounds the visceral mass and secrets the shell
a long-lived form of a lymphocyte that bear receptors to a specific antigen and that remains circulating the the blood in small numbers for a lifetime
one of Mendel's laws. it states that when two organisms, each pure for two opposing traits, are crossed, the offspring will be hybrid but will exhibit only the dominant trait
organisms that maintain a consistent body temperature
refers to the changes in one gene pool of a population

in the living thing
a molecule closely related to ATP that provides the energy for translation
frequency-dependent selection
due to root pressure, droplets of water appear in the morning on the leaf tips of some herbaceous leaves
antibodies produced by a single B cell that produces a single antigen in huge quantities. they are important in research and in treating and diagnosing certain diseases
organisms possessing both male and female sex organs
a nucleotide that binds with cytosine. a purine.

changes in DNA
an enzyme that untwists the double helix at the replication fork
Blood-filled cavities within the body of arthropods and mollusks with open circulatory systems
one type of T lymphocyte that activates B cells and other T lymphocytes
also known as the citric acid cycle, it completes the breakdown of pyruvic acid into carbon dioxide, with the release of a small amount of ATP
this is the cross between two organisms that are each hybrid for one trait
two or more poisonous species resemble each other and gain an advantage from their combined numbers. predators learn more quickly to avoid any prey with that appearance
a subdivision of flowering plants whose members possess one embryonic see leaf or cotyledon
the type of inheritance that is characterized by blending traits. for instance, one gene for red plus one gene for white results in a pink four o'clock flower.
this theory states that the first cells on earth were heterotrophic prokaryotes
