Active Site
The part of the enzyme which the reacting molecules fit into
1 of 17
Active Transport
The use of energy to move molecules in and out of a cell. This is faster than diffusion and can work from low to high concentration
2 of 17
Aerobic Respiration
Respiration using oxygen
3 of 17
Amino Acids
Small molecules that are from proteins when joined together in long chains.
4 of 17
Anaerobic Respiration
Respiration without oxygen
5 of 17
Catalyst
A substance that increases the rate of chemical reactions without being chemically changed itself
6 of 17
Cellulose
The molecule that makes up fibre. It can not be digested by the human digestive system.
7 of 17
Chlorophyll
A part of a plant cell that contains chlorophyll
8 of 17
Cytoplasm
The material within a cell (not including the nucleus)
9 of 17
Denatured
When enzymes are denatured the structure and shape of the active site has changed
10 of 17
Diffusion
Movement of molecules from a high concentration to a low concentration
11 of 17
Enzyme
Speeds up chemical reactions
12 of 17
Fermentation
The conversion of carbohydrates to alcohols and CO2 or organic acids using yeast or bacteria
13 of 17
Lock and Key
Molecules have a specific shape that fits the active site of an enzyme
14 of 17
Limiting Factor
The factor preventing the rate of photosynthesis from increasing in a particular situation.
15 of 17
Mitochrondria
The parts of a cell where respiration take place
16 of 17
Osmosis
The diffusion of water across a partially permeable membrane
