tissues
group of cells that all do the same job
1 of 50
organs
made up of groups of tissues
2 of 50
diffusion
movement of particles from a high concentrated to a low
3 of 50
enzymes
biological catalysts
4 of 50
enzyme; amylase
1. found in mouth 2. acts on insoluble starch 3. product: glucose
5 of 50
enzyme; protease
1. found in stomach, small intestine 2. acts on proteins 3. product; amino acids
6 of 50
enzyme; lipase
1. found in small intestine 2. acts on lipids 3. product: fatty acids
7 of 50
What happens to an enzyme when it hots up?
1. the enzyme becomes denatured 2. substrate can no longer fit and reaction can not take place
8 of 50
aerobic respiration equation
glucose + oxygen > co2 + water + energy
9 of 50
what happens energy is released during respiration?
1. build larger molecules 2. mammals,birds = constant body temp 3. plants = builds sugars and other nutrients into amino acids = proteins
10 of 50
what happens in digestive system?
1. hydrochloric acid is produced 2. liver produces bile, stored in gall bladder before passing down into small intestine 3. bile neutralises the acid added in stomach 4. bile is then emulsified
11 of 50
3 limiting factors that decrease rate of photosynthesis
1. shortage of sunlight 2. shortage of co2 3. low temperature
12 of 50
what can measure quantitative data by
1. random sampling using a quadrat 2. sampling along a transect
13 of 50
photosynthesis equation
co2 + water > glucose + oxygen
14 of 50
photosynthesis
process where plants make their own food
15 of 50
homozygous
both alleles are the same
16 of 50
heterozygous
different alleles
17 of 50
DNA
molecule containing coded information that determines inherited characteristics
18 of 50
gene
length of DNA that codes for protein, combining with amino acids
19 of 50
what are the two alleles
1. dominant 2. recessive
20 of 50
chromosomes
made of long proteins called DNA
21 of 50
how many chromosomes in an human body cell
46 chromosomes
22 of 50
cystic fibrosis
disorder of the cell membrane caused by recessive allele
23 of 50
HUntington's disease
disorder of the nervous system caused by dominant allele
24 of 50
what contains proteases and lipases to digest protein and fat stains
biological detergents
25 of 50
what pre-digest the protein in baby foods in industry
protease
26 of 50
what does carbohydrase do in the industry
convert starch into glucose
27 of 50
what converts glucose syrup into fructose?
isomerase
28 of 50
3 differences between animal & plants
1. no cell wall 2. small vacuoles 3. no chloroplasts
29 of 50
red blood cell
substance that carries oxygen
30 of 50
nucleus
controls everything in the cell
31 of 50
cytoplasm
chemical reactions take place
32 of 50
cell membrane
gives cell shape & controls substances that leave and enter cell
33 of 50
ribosomes
proteins are made
34 of 50
mitchondria
releases energy from respiration for the cell
35 of 50
cell wall
strengthens the cell
36 of 50
chloroplasts
found in cytoplasm. absorb light energy to make food by photosynthesis
37 of 50
vacuole
large sac in the centre of the cytoplasm
38 of 50
Leaf Structure
1. water and salt absorbed through xylem tubes 2. co2 enters the leaf by diffusions through stomata 3. glucose used through respiration to give plants their own energy 4. excess glucose stored in leaves as insoluble starch
39 of 50
3 characteristics of leaves
1. large surface area absorb light 2. thin shape, diffuse 3. chloroplasts, containing chlorphyll 4. veins carrying substance to and from
40 of 50
fertilisation
2 gametes fuse together
41 of 50
mitosis
cell division making all body cells except gametes
42 of 50
structure of mitosis
1. before cell divides, makes a second set 2. each chromosome makes a copy of itself 3. each new cell has same genetic information
43 of 50
meiosis
cell division involving gametes
44 of 50
structure of meiosis
1. cells in reproductive organs divide to form gametes 2. cells in ovaries divide by meiosis 3. copies of chromosome made 4. cell divides twice to form four gametes, each with single set
45 of 50
what do body cells divide by
mitosis
46 of 50
3 ways extinction could be caused
1. new disease kill all memebers of specie 2. environment changes over time 3. new competitor
47 of 50
extinction
species which once existed has died out
48 of 50
fossils
remains of organisms from years ago found in rocks
49 of 50
3 ways fossils are formed
1. from hard parts of organisms that have not decayed 2. parts of organisms replaced 3. preserved traces of organsims
