Biology Section 23: Reactions

Aerial Hypha – A hypha that is not imbedded in the material upon which the fungus grows.
"With the concentration gradient" – Natural movement of a molecule from its higher concentration to its lower concentration
NAD+ – The electron carrier involved in glycolysis; it accepts a pair of high energy electrons in glycolysis and Krebs cycle.
ground tissue – One of the four basic plant tissues. It is the most common type of plant tissue. The cells that make up this tissue are involved in providing storage for starches and oils, metabolism (photosynthesis), and help to support the plant.
What is the formula for photosynthesis? – Carbon dioxide + Water => (light energy/chlorophyll) Glucose + Oxygen (6CO2 + 6H2O => (light energy/chlorophyll) C6H12O6 + 6O2).
Leucoplast – Organelles that store starches or oils in plants
Myoma of the uterus is also called
microfilament – a fiber found inside eukaryotic cells that is composed mainly of the protein actin and that has a role in cell structure and movement
Why is insulin dosage in type 1 diabetes dependant on amount of exercise? – Strenuous exercise requires high blood sugar level, so low insulin dosage.
protonema – A thread-like chain of cells that grows from a spore, which then develops into a gametophyte.
Myоmа оf the uterus is аlsо cаlled
Overestimated Risk – Involuntary (not under their control), not naturual, unfamiliar, dreaded, unfair, or if there is a very small risk.
Gametophyte – a haploid, multicellular phase of plants, with each cell containing only one set of chromosomes
Homozygous – Having two identical alleles of a gene
experimental group – identical to the control group except the independant variable
