Phospholipid – any of various compounds composed of fatty acids and phosphoric acid and a nitrogenous base
-Nucleus in the center of the cell.
-More irregular shape
-Have small vacuoles called vesicles – 3 Characteristics of animal cells
Peroxisome – a vesicle; its enzymes digest fatty acids and amino acids to hydrogen peroxide, which is then converted to harmless products
Gibb's Free Energy – Measure of the amount of energy available to determine if a reaction is energetically feasible.
limiting nutrient – Single essential nutrient that limits productivity in an ecosystem
chromosome – Located inside the nucleus of a cell, it consists of a long, thin section made up of thousands of genes.
Nematoda – the phyla of round worms.
Actin – One of the two protein filaments in a muscle cell that function in contraction
Phototropism – a change in the direction of growth in response to light
A 44-year-old patient with pulmonary tuberculosis (lung infection) is evaluated for SIADH. Which of the following assessment findings would be expected in this patient?
proteome – entire sets of proteins expressed by a given cell or group of cells
What are proteins? – These are produced inside and by cells, in order to carry out particular instructions, as they have been given by the genes.
Metabolic – Refers to any chemical process that happens within (or sometimes outside of) a living organism. Involves the synthesis of complex molecules from simpler building blocks as well as the breakdown of complex molecules into simpler molecules. Examples include respiration, photosynthesis, digestion, protein synthesis, and many, many more.
embryology – the study of the early development of living things
organ system – a group of organs that work together to achieve one function
Carcinogen – Cancer-causing substance.
A 44-yeаr-оld pаtient with pulmоnаry tuberculоsis (lung infection) is evaluated for SIADH. Which of the following assessment findings would be expected in this patient?
Nucleic acid – Macromolecule containing hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, carbon, and phosphorus; Examples: DNA & RNA; Monomers = nucleotides
organisms – individual living things
products – ending materials of a reaction
