Alpha Helix
A protein secondary structure - a right-handed spiral held in place by hydrogen bonds between adjacent C=O and NH groups
1 of 8
Abundance
The frequency of occurrence of plants in a sampled area, such as a quadrat
2 of 8
Activation Energy
The level of energy required to enable a reaction to take place. Enzymes reduce the amount of energy required to allow a reaction to proceed
3 of 8
Active Immunity
Immunity that is acquired by activation of immune system
4 of 8
Active Site
The area on an enzyme molecule to which the substrate binds
5 of 8
Active Transport
Movement of substances across membranes against their concentration gradient, requiring the use of energy in the form of ATP. Active transport usually involves the use of transport proteins
6 of 8
Adaptation
A feature of a living organism that increases its chances of survival, for example thick fur on an animal that lives ina cold habitat
7 of 8
Adenine
A nitrogen-containing organic base found in nucleic acids. It pairs with thymime in DNA and with uracil in RNA
