How do antibodies work? – The white cell detects the antigens on the surface of the microorganism, and produces antibodies of the right shape and size to latch onto the antigens. They do so, and it is easier for the white blood cells to digest the microorganism.
Insulin is secreted by the
What kind of cells are formed during meiosis? – gametes-sex cells
C3 plants – A plant that uses the Calvin cycle for the initial steps that incorporate CO2 into organic material, forming a three-carbon compound as the first stable intermediate.
hydrolysis – Breaking down covalent bonds by the addition of a water molecule
A resource that CANNOT be replaced by natural processes at least as fast as they are used. Examples: Coal, Oil, Metals, Marble, Gold – Nonrenewable resources
Insulin is secreted by the
What is the Rh factor? How can the Rh factor complicate pregnancy? – The Rh factor is an antigen on the surface of RBCs. Following the birth of an Rh+ child, an Rh- mother develops antibodies to the Rh factor. These antibodies can attach the blood cells of any Rh+ fetuses carried by the mother.
