Describe the structure of centrioles
Small tubes of protein fibres
1 of 56
Give an example of active transport (crossing membranes - active)
Calcium ion movement in muscles
2 of 56
What is the role of neutrophils?
Ingest invading microorganisms
3 of 56
What do the lungs produce and why?
Produce a surfactant so alveoli do not collapse due to cohesive forces between water.
4 of 56
Which are narrower, the bronchi or trachea?
The bronchi are narrower than the trachea.
5 of 56
What does pulmonary circulation do?
Picks up oxygen and carries it to the lungs.
6 of 56
What does systematic circulation do?
Carries oxygen around the body.
7 of 56
What causes the atrioventricular valves to open?
When the pressure in the ventricles drops below the pressure in the atria.
8 of 56
When do the semilunar valves open?
When pressure in the ventricles is higher than in the arteries.
9 of 56
What causes the semilunar valves to close?
When pressure in ventricles is lower than in arteries.
10 of 56
How would an eletrocardiogram show myocardial infarction?
Elevation of the ST section.
11 of 56
How would atrial fibrillation be distinguished on an electrocardiogram?
Small, unclear P waves.
12 of 56
How would an electrocardiogram should abnormal ventricular hypertrophy?
Deep S waves.
13 of 56
How does the heart pump blood to the head and what is this?
By peristalsis where muscular contractions of muscle layers of gut squeeze food along.
14 of 56
What do the veins contain and what do they do?
Contain valves which help blood to flow back to the heart. Prevent flow in opposite direction.
15 of 56
What is the role of the tissue fluid?
To transport oxygen and nutrients to the cells and carbon dioxide and wastes back to the blood.
16 of 56
What combined effect helps to move fluid back into the capillary?
Combined effect of hydrostatic pressure in tissue fluid and osmotic force of plasma proteins.
17 of 56
Where does some of the tissue fluid go?
Drained into lymphatic system
18 of 56
What is the role of lymph nodes?
To filter any bacteria or foreign material from the lymph fluid.
19 of 56
Where does haemoglobin take oxygen from?
The red blood cells
20 of 56
Why doesn't haemoglobin readily take up oxygen at low partial pressures?
Because haem groups are in the centre of haemoglobin, making it hard for oxygen to reach them.
21 of 56
What does conformational change allow?
Allows more oxygen to associate with other haem groups.
22 of 56
What is the Bohr effect?
More carbon dioxide, so more hydrogen which will make oxyhaemoglobin release more oxygen and the change in shape in oxyhaemoglobin dissociation curve.
23 of 56
How does the shape of the dissociation curve change when there is more CO2?
Shifts down and to the right.
24 of 56
What surrounds the vascular bundles?
Sheath of endodermis.
25 of 56
What happens when lignification is not complete?
Bordered pits are produced.
26 of 56
Where are the root hair cells found?
In the epidermis.
27 of 56
What is the endodermis?
Special cells with a waterproof strip in (Casparian strip).
28 of 56
What are present in the cell surface membranes to actively transport nitrate ions?
Transporter proteins.
29 of 56
Describe root pressure
Endodermis moves minerals into xylem which forces water into xylem.
30 of 56
Describe transpiration pull
Cohesion holds molecules in a long chain which creates the transpiration stream. Pull from above creates tension in column of water (cohesion-tension theory).
31 of 56
Describe capillary action
Adhesion attracts water molecules to sides of xylem vessel and pulls water up the sides.
32 of 56
Describe the process of transpiration
Osmosis from xylem to mesophyll cells. Evaporation from mesophyll cell surface to intercellular spaces. Diffusion of water vapour from intercellular spaces out through stomata.
33 of 56
Describe the effect of temperature on transpiration (3)
Increases evaporation, rate of diffusion and decreases water vapour potential gradient in air.
34 of 56
What is the effect of higher humidity on transpiration?
Less water lost as smaller water vapour potential gradient between air spaces in leaf and air outside.
35 of 56
What effect does wind have on transpiration?
More wind maintains high water vapour potential gradient.
36 of 56
How does spongy mesophyll on xerophytes help to reduce water loss?
Reduces surface area exposed to air in leaves.
37 of 56
How do pits reduce water loss in xerophytes?
Trap saturated air with water vapour which reduces potential gradient.
38 of 56
What effect does rolling leaves have on water loss in xerophytes?
Lower epidermis is not exposed to atmosphere which reduces potential gradient.
39 of 56
In translocation, what do cotransporter proteins allow?
Cotransporter proteins allow hydrogen ions to bring sucrose into companion cells.
40 of 56
Where does sucrose go once it is in the companion cells?
Diffuses into sieve tube elements.
41 of 56
What does this diffusion cause?
Sucrose reduces water potential in sieve tube elements.
42 of 56
After the water potential is reduced, what moves into the sieve tube elements and by what process?
Water moves in by osmosis
43 of 56
What does water moving in increase?
Increases hydrostatic pressure.
44 of 56
What can sucrose be converted into at the sink?
Can be converted into starch for storage or used in respiration.
45 of 56
What does this conversion cause?
Sucrose concentration to be reduced.
46 of 56
Where will the sucrose move to?
Move into the surrounding cells by diffusion/active transport.
47 of 56
What will this increase?
Increases water potential in sieve tube elements
48 of 56
What will an increase in this water potential cause?
Causes water to move into surrounding cells by osmosis.
49 of 56
What will this reduce at the sink?
Reduces hydrostatic pressure.
50 of 56
What is mass flow?
Water carries sucrose and assimilates (e.g. amino acids). These enter phloem at the source, move down hydrostatic pressure gradient and leave the phloem at the sink.
51 of 56
What can some of the fibres in the cytoskeleton do?
Can cause the movement in white blood cells. Move some organelles around in cells.
52 of 56
What are other fibres known as?
53 of 56
What is the role of microtubules?
To move an organism through a liquid or to waft a liquid past the cell.
54 of 56
Provide examples of things moved by proteins on microtubules?
How chromosomes are moved during mitosis. How vesicles move from ER to golgi apparatus.
55 of 56
What are these proteins known as and how do they function?
Microtubule motors. They use ATP to drive these movements.
