Biol 101 Chp 5: The Structure And Function Of Large Biological Molecules

1st step in Classifying Bacteria – 1. Gram stain positive-Phylum Firmicutes, 2. Gram negative- Phylum Gracilicutes, 3.. Will not stain at all because it has no cell wall-Phylum Tenericutes (tender because no cell wall) Class Mollicutes or 4. Will not stain at all because it has atypical cell wall- Phylum Mendosicutes Class Archaebacteria.
What are the three regions of a kidney? – Cortex, medulla, and pelvis
point mutation – A change in a gene at a single nucleotide pair.
circaannual – biological rhythm which is annual or yearly
Predation – An interaction in which one animal captures and feeds on another animal
regeneration – A method of asexual reproduction found in sponges. If a section of sponge is cut off of the parent, it will eventually grow back into a complete sponge.
tertiary structure – Results from interactions between side chains.
unicellular – Made up of a single cell.
The combining form encephal/o is defined as
What is DNA? – Deoxyribonucleic acid- the molecules that contain genetic code, and appear in the form of a double helix.
Kilogram* – basic metric unit of mass
tendons – Attach muscles to bones.
The cоmbining fоrm encephаl/о is defined аs
ligand-gated ion channel – Type of membrane receptor that has a region that can act as a "gate" when the receptor changes shape.
What is reproduction? – the passing of hereditary information from parent to offspring
