Condensation Reaction – chemical reaction where molecules are linked together (water is a product)
2 Amino Acids —> 1 Protein + H2O
epigenetics – The study of chemical factors involved in gene expression, that produce both differences in cell types within an organism (somatic epigenetics), as well as heritable changes not caused by DNA mutations (germline epigenetics).
medulla oblongata – Located at the tip of the spinal cord, it is the lower part of the brainstem. It regulates functions such as heart rate, breathing, and blood pressure. It also transmits impulses to and from the spinal cord.

(2 ways) – 1. By producing toxins.
2. By damaging host tissues.
Visceral hump – A hump that contains a mollusk's heart, digestive, and excretory organs

metabolism – all of the chemical reactions that occur in an organism
41. Are most eggs metabolically inactive before fertilization? – Yes. Fertilization turns on the metabolism – called activation
endergonic – these reactions absorb energy
