BIO 111 Exam 2 Study Guide Key Concepts  Adenosine usually binds to adenosine receptors in the brain, which tells your body that you need sleep. o How will coffee keep you from going to sleep or feeling tired? Caffeine blocks adenosine receptors in brain o Why is coffee able to do this? Caffeine has similar shape and can bind as the competitive inhibitor  Glycolysis produces 4 ATP total, but only 2 net ATP because 2 are used to start ATP.  Steps of aerobic cellular respiration: GLYCOLYSIS, PYRUVATE TRANSITION, KREB’S CYCLE, ELECTRON TRANSPORT CHAIN  Where do these processes occur? Cytosol and mitochondria  Oxygen will break up the lactic acid. Why might a runner have shorter, more frequent breaths after running a long distance? Oxygen is being used to break up lactic acid so you need more  2 types of phosphorylation: Substrate phosphorylation and Oxidative  What could cause the receptor to dysfunction?

Answers: #1.True #2.True #3.True #4.True #5.False #6.False Application Problems  Acetylcholine (Ach) is a neurotransmitter released from the axon terminals of neurons. Ach is stored in membrane-bound sacs called ______, which then fuse with membranes allowing Ach to leave via _______. The neurotransmitter binds to a _____protein on the next neuron, allowing for the message/signal to be communicated between neurons. The binding of Ach causes a change in conformation of the protein. The protein opens so sodium can move into the cells; therefore, this is also a _____-gated sodium ____. o Answers: vesicles, exocytosis, receptor, Ach ligand, channel  Acetylcholine-gated sodium channels allow for sodium to move into the membrane of a muscle cell. This influx of sodium eventually creates a muscle contraction. If the Ach-gated sodium channels are blocked by an antagonist, what will happen to the muscles? o Answer: the muscle would not contract  Dopamine is a neurotransmitter whose function can result in pleasure reward seeking behavior. If a drug is an antagonist of dopamine is in the body, what effect will this have on the mood? Why? o Answer: more feelings of pleasure because dopamine receptor recognizes the agonist as dopamine, thereby increasing effects of dopamine  If a drug that is an antagonist of dopamine is in the body what will the effect be? Why? o Answer: signs of depression because dopamine unable to bind the receptor, which prevents effects of dopamine  What hormone is produced in response to an increase in blood glucose levels? o Answer: Insulin Multiple Choice  Addition of transporters in the membrane will: o Require more ATP o Have no effect o This is not possible o Speed up the rate that a particular molecule is taken into the cell More Key Concepts  What is the basic unit of life?
