If you were to remove the ER retrieval signal (KDEL) from protein disulfide isomerase (PDI), which is normally a soluble resident of the ER lumen, where would you expect the modified PDI to be located?
Siganl tansducing tirmeric G proteins consist of three subunits designated as alpha, beta, gamma. Suppose you have isolated a mutant G alpha subunit that has an increased GTPase activity. What effect would this mutation have on the G protein and the effector protein? Why?
Download the image (attached) 1. Name the structure to which the arrow points. 2. Give an example of a specific organism which has the structure. 3. Briefly describe at least one function the structure performs (what it helps the organism do).
I'm having a diffucult time understanding free energy vs activation energy are they the same? I know free energy is the portion of a system's energy that is available for work but what is this compared to the activiation energy?
Often, prokaryotic cells exist as simple unicellular organisms, but in some species, prokaryotic cells can grow together in colonies or filaments. In addition, some species, such as Cynaobacteria or Myxobacteria, demonstrate intercellular communication, or might even produce specialized cells and structures. However, only euk
I need guideness on the physical and metabolic constraints limit cells size? And how an enormous cell encounter and adapations would help large cells survive?
Why is oxygen needed for cellular respiration?
I am trying to compare process osmosis and diffussion and how does the two process help a plant leaves remain firm? 2. How exactly does a cell membrane structure related to its function?
Of the pathways in respiration, which one produces the least energy? The Next least? The Most? How do you know this, and why is this important to the environement we live in (ie on Earth?)? Ideas are presented.

Please answer the attached questions on monera and protista. --- LAB 14- B 1- To what extent would filamentous cyanobacteria be considered multicellular? 2- Which of the following words or phrases describes the heterotrophic bacteria, the cyanobacteria, both or neither? a. lack of nuclear envelope b. photosynthesize si
Please answer the following questions (attached). --- LAB 4-A 1- What do you think is the function of the appendages extending from the nerve cells? 2- What three organelles (or structures) can you view in the elodea leaf cells, but not in the mammalian nerve cells? 3- Does Spirostomum have a cell wall? How do you kn
Please answer the following short questions (as brief as possible) This is for my study guide. --- 1A LAB 1- If an ocular lens has a magnifying power of 15X and the objective lens is 10X what is the total magnification? 2- Identify the part of the microscope with the following functions: a. Lens that further magnifi
How is programmed death of cells (apoptosis) used during embryonic development and in fighting cancer?
Name the protein-rich solution that fills the part of the plant in which food is made?
Give the term for the plasma membrane pulling away from the cell wall.
Why can only eukaryotic cells evolve into multicellular organisms? Why can't prokaryotic bacterial cells develop into multicellular organisms as well?
As multicellular organisms decelop from embryo to adults, gap junctions are made and broken in specific patterns, involving specific tissues. This suggests that these junctions play an important role in signalling between cells during embryonic development. A) With the understanding of Gap junctions, speculate on what sorts
What are the equations for the breakdown of glucose to i.CO2 and water ii.lactic acid iii.alcohol
Consider the signalling pathway that proceeds through three protein kinases that are sequentially activated by phosphorylation. IN one case the kinases are held in a signalling complex by a scaffolding protein; in the other, the kinases are freely diffusing (see figure attached). Discuss the properties of these two types of orga
Whats the difference between transport vesicles, secretory vesicles, and endocytotic vesicles? I know that Transport vesicles move molecules between locations inside the cell. For example they move proteins from the ER to the Golgi, from there to the outer membrane, where they are secreted
You prepare radioactivley labelled ribosomal subunits and you microinject them into cells that you are culturing in the laboratory. At different times after you inject the subunits, you take a small amount of cells and analyze them by electron microscopy. You find very soon after injection, the labelled subunits are assembled in
Consider the role of the coenzyme NAD in glucose oxidation. In the process of glycolysis the formation of pyruvate involves the reduction of the coenzyme NAD to NAD.2H. (a) Which other stages of glucose oxidation produce molecules of the reduced coenzyme, NAD.2H? (b) Explain what happens to NAD.2H produced during glycoly
1. What are the phases of the Cell Cycle? Describe each phase in some detail.
Please discuss the differences between the Nucleus and Nucleolus in the cell?
1. Which of the following organelles is most important in providing energy to the cell? (a) mitochondrion (b) centrosome (c) Nucleus (d) Peroxisome 2. Name the membrane valves that open and close for potassium efflux and sodium influx. (a)ion channels (b)Vacuoles (c)Capillaries 3. What technique can be used to measu
I have been assigned the cell wall, and cell membrane for a biology project. One aspect of the project is determining the chemical equations for the proceses which occur inside that organelle. i have done research on, and off of the internet and have yet to find any answers. Could someone point me in the right direction, or supp
Why does a muscle cell contain many mitochondria and a white blood cell contain many lysomes?
What is the difference between passive and active transport? This job gives the definitions of each, including the 3 types of passive transport.
Autoradiography depends upon particles emitted from radioactive atoms striking a photographic emulsion that lies on top of the tissue section. When the emulsion is developed, the site where the particle struck the emulsion is developed, the site where the particle struck the emulsion appears as a silver grain, as in figure 8.3a.
