Dive Biology Terms Lesson 32

IPSC – Induced pluripotent stem cells. Adult stem cells that have been reprogramed to act like blastocyst cells.
translation – Genetic code carried by mRNA is decoded to produce a protein (RNA —>protein)
Why is enzyme activity slower at lower temperatures? – Because the particles are moving more slowly and therefore less likely to collide
solute – A substance that is dissolved into a solvent to form a solute.
tolerance – Ability of an organism to survive and reproduce under circumstances that differ from their optimal conditions
Saturated fatty acids – Carbon atoms are bonded to as many hydrogen atoms as possible
If you were using a light microscope, how could you tell if you were looking at a prokaryotic or eukaryotic cell?
Polar (Polarity) – A molecule in which charges (positive and negative) are unevenly distributed.

Water is polar.

A monomer is what? – An individual unit
emergent properties – New properties that emerge with each step upward in the hierarchy of life, owing to the arrangement and interactions of parts as complexity increases.
notochord – a rod of tough, flexible material that runs the length of a creature's body, providing the majority of its support
tympanic membrane – Sometimes referred to as the eardrum, it is a membrane that transmits vibrations in the ear.
If yоu were using а light micrоscоpe, how could you tell if you were looking аt а prokaryotic or eukaryotic cell?
a) only living things can produce other living things –
Equilibrium – The state of both sides are balanced
Phosphorous – becomes available for erosion as undersea sedimentary rocks are up-thrust by volcanic activity, erosion releases it from rocks into streams where it combines with oxygen to form phosphates in lakes that are then absorbed by plants, it is recycled through the food chain as animals consume plants and other animals, it is returned to the ground by animal waste.
