Unit 1 Revision Cards

What can ethanol do to the membrane?
denature the proteins in the membrane
1 of 41
What happens to the phospholipids in ethanol?
They dissolve
2 of 41
What happens to the vacuole membrane?
It can be disrupted so the betalain can leak out
3 of 41
What could affect the results of the experiment?
It might not have been rinsed properly, or the colorimeter might not have been calibrated.
4 of 41
What does diffusion involve?
small and or non polar lipid soluble molecules
5 of 41
for example?
oxygen and carbon dioxide
6 of 41
How do these molecules move?
directly through the phospholipid bilayer
7 of 41
How is this movement?
8 of 41
What is the net movement?
down a concentration gradient
9 of 41
What protein does facillitated diffusion involve?
a channel protein
10 of 41
What molecules move through the layer?
polar molecules
11 of 41
What does active transport need?
energy from the breakdown of ATP
12 of 41
*** does active transport travel?
up a concentration gradient
13 of 41
what protein is required?
14 of 41
What is meant by a template strand?
RNA nucleotides bind to this strand, mRNA is built along this strand
15 of 41
What happens to a cell membrane with heat?
increased kinetic energy which increases movement of moolecules
16 of 41
What moves?
17 of 41
what are denatured?
membrane proteins
18 of 41
When is there more denaturation?
at 40 degree celsius
19 of 41
What can escape from the cell?
Betalain when the membrane is disrupted
20 of 41
What is an ethical issue of prenatal scanning?
Chance of miscarriage, killing is wrong
21 of 41
What is a social issue of pre-natal scanning?
Confidentiality of parents/child, paternal dna might not match.
22 of 41
How is the dipolar nature of water essential for living organism?
Water is a solvent, water can allow cohesion - high surface tension, , hydrogen bonds holding water, high specific heat capacity and distribution of thermal energy around the body
23 of 41
What is one difference between mrna and trna?
mRNA contains a codon whereas tRNA has an anticodon
24 of 41
What is another difference between mRNA and tRNA?
tRNA has hydrogen bonds holding the structure together whereas mRNA does not
25 of 41
What is the definition of risk?
probability of the occurance of an unwanted event or outcome.
26 of 41
What are two things which could effect the perception of risk?
Peer pressure and own experience
27 of 41
What is a gene?
A sequence of bases on a DNA molecule that codes for a sequence of amino acids in a polypeptide chain
28 of 41
What is cytosine and Thymine known as?
29 of 41
What is guanine and adenine?
30 of 41
What happens during atrial systole?
the atrium contract and the ventricles are relaxed.
31 of 41
What valve opens?
atrioventricular valves
32 of 41
During ventricular systole what opens?
semi lunar valves
33 of 41
Where is oxygenated blood forced through?
the aorta to the body
34 of 41
and where does the deoxygenated blood go through?
pulmonary artery to the lungs
35 of 41
What is the first main structure of the aorta?
thick wall
36 of 41
Why does it need this?
avoid rupture/ withstand high pressure
37 of 41
What is elastic layers needed for?
control the flow of blood
38 of 41
What is the smooth endothelial wall needed for?
reducing friction
39 of 41
What valve is present in the base of the aorta?
Semi lunar valve
40 of 41
What does this prevent?
back flow
