Protein functions
how do amino acids differ?
polymers of amino acids
peptide bonds are catalyzed in cells by the:
major archaebacterial groups
contains DNA/genetic information for constructing proteins
major site of protein synthesis
site of ATP synthesis by cellular respiration
responsible for sorting/shipping of membrane vesicle containing proteins/other macromolecules
major site of lipid synthesis, also synthesis of some polysaccharides
selectively permeable barrier that regulates entry/exit of molecules
where RNA is made
the industrial park
cellular warehouses that store fats/sugars for later use
recycling centers that break down nutrients/old organelles
used in cell division
anchor cell to surface
hook cells together
channels in cell wall that allow cell-cell communication, transport of sugars & water
Animal cells only have
Pro/Eukaryotes both have
only eukaryotes
stored energy
energy of motion
amount of energy needed to raise temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 degree celsius
Laws of thermodynamics
energy released from exergonic chemical reactions is used to drive endergonic reactions
protein that increases the rate of a specific chemical reaction by reducing the activation energy associated with that reaction
where is the active site?
inhibitor binds in active site
inhibitor binds/changes affinity of enzyme for substrate
moves from higher to lower solute concentration
needs membrane protein
movement of water molecules across membrane based on concentration gradient
salt in = salt out
salt in > salt out
salt in < salt out
low to high, need protein pump and ATP

What goes into photosynthesis?
what comes out of photosynthesis?
reaction involving loss of electrons (H)
reaction involving gain of electrons (H)
removal of one H atom produces:
voupled reactions in which one molecule loses an electron while another molecule simultaneously accepts/gains that electron
pathway of cellular respiration (cytoplasm)
pathway of cellular respiration (matrix)
pathway of cellular respiration (cristae)
cellular respiration only occurs in presence of:
ATP synthesized by coupling potential energy associated with H+ gradient across membrane to the phosphorylation of ADP
sugar+ADP --> sugar + ATP
net yield of glycolysis per glucose
pyruvic acids oxidize to
max ATP per glucose from respiration
harvesting energy from sugars in absence of O2
