Re: Note Taking in Biology

lol I must be the only one here who does not use the online powerpoints. The night before the test I'll do any questions posted online but I'm pretty old fashioned with my highlighters and notepaper. I like writing a rough draft in class, then writing an expounded version after class, stick a clip o...

Re: proteins found in the cell membrane.

I was always taught there are 6 fundamental membrane proteins. 1. Carrier proteins (Facilitative, active, aquaporins etc) 2. Enzyme proteins (Integral and peripheral) 3. Signal transduction proteins (hormone reception, coat proteins?) 4. Cell recognition (Here's your glycoproteins) 5. Intercellular ...

Check your school library's website, normally they have a database of academic journals. You just have to punch your query in and bam.. Bacteria galore.

Re: Enzymes and ATP

Hmm.. Not my expertise but I think I can help a bit. I believe the first reaction is a hydrolytic breakdown process, but the second looks characteristic of a peroxisome, which applies strong redox reactions to macromolecules, breaking them down to a specific product and hydrogen peroxide H2O2. I'm t...

Re: Yet another question on endergonic reactions

How about a sponge? Endergonic: The sponge absorbs the water (ie, energy) and now carries that energy, and can be expelled. Exergonic: *Squeeze sponge* energy leaves the system (ie, sponge) and the sponge is no longer any good for scrubbing. Also, the water would normally leave the sponge of its own...

These guys are spot on. Try to enjoy it, as crazy as it sounds! If you have the opportunity, become acquainted with your proff or the assistant proff. Sometimes they have office hours and can answer any questions you have. If your school has a bio resource center, study there. Biology majors love to...

Hey, the textbook definition does suck a little bit.. Quantitative traits which vary along a continuum, woo! Right.. here is an example of a continuum | || ||| |||| ||| || | Each "gradient" changes a little bit at a time. Just like skin tone. There are no "black people" or "...

Re: genetics problem about gametes, phenotype, genotype

Hey there omega, I remember when our lab prof asked us to write up all possible gametes and we had no idea how to! It was crazy.. Ok so always remember what you're doing with the punnet square. You are separating alleles during gamete formation and gametes are haploid. Thus, each gamete only has one...

Hey there, I'm going to assume this is based on citrus plants (mmmm) since many citrus plants produce both zygotic and polyembryonic offspring I would first figure out if the offspring was produced through fertilization (zygotic) or cloned from the nucellar tissue (polyembryonic). Nucellar embryony ...
