What amino acid is the start codon?
Reduced form of NADP
The process of creating an equivalent RNA copy of a sequence of DNA
Prevents the transcription of DNA. Coded by regulator genes.
Messenger RNA (mRNA) produced in transcription is decoded to produce a specific amino acid chain, or polypeptide, that will later fold into an active protein.

Proteins use hydrolysis of _____ as a 'timer' for the 'on' response.
Middle layer of tissue
Set of pathways that break down larger molecule into small units and release energy

A cell or an organism having half of the number of chromosomes of normal cells. (eg. sex cells, n)
Total entropy (disorder) in the universe is continually increasing
Provides mechanical support to the cell.
Biological process that causes an organism to develop its shape.
Moves materials with in the cell and form mitotic spindles.
A unit of heredity in a living organism. It is normally a stretch of DNA that codes for a type of protein or for an RNA chain that has a function in the organism.
On the inner membrane of mitochondria and is used to carry electrons down the ELC
Two of the same genes (eg. HH or hh)
the spread of cancer from one organ to another. Very inefficient.
Cells of early embryo can become any cell type or tissue
Cells have two homologous copies of each chromosome (non-sex cells, 2n)
Display self and nonself antigens within a cell to the rest of the organism.

Process of cellular replication that results in the formation of gametes.
Cleaves DNA at restriction sites. Leaves sticky ends.
Trap in sunlight.
Occurs in many cooked starchy foods

'Reads' an intact DNA strand as a template and uses it to synthesize the new strand.
A phase early in the development of most animal embryos, during which the morphology of the embryo is reorganized to form the three germ layers: ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm
What is another way to say lowest energy conformation or active conformation?
genes that determine which parts of the body form what body parts
Part of tissue that usually provides structural support to the cells in addition to performing various other important functions. Also regultes intercellualr communication.
Wraps up and packages DNA
Involves chromogenic reporters and substrates which produce some kind of observable color change to indicate the presence of antigen or protein.
