(lower the energy needed for a reaction.)  Substrate: reactants in anenzymatic reaction  Energy of Activation: energy that must be added for molecules to react with one another  Active site:location on the enzyme that complexes with the substrate  Factors affecting Enzymatic speed: o Substrate concentration: enzyme activity increases as substrateincreases.(There is a maximum rate of enzyme activity however). o Temperature and Ph: Rateof reactions goes up as Temp goes up (Unless too hot, canbecome denatured). Every enzyme has a preferred Ph. o Enzyme Activation: Not all enzymes are needed by the cell all the time. A cell can regulate which ones are active.Enzymes can be modified by adding or removing phosphates, this changes the shape. o Enzyme Inhibition: Competitive and non-competitive inhibitors keep the enzyme from working. Ex: cyanide and penicillin. o Enzyme Cofactors: bind to an enzyme to aid ina reaction. Inorganic ions are cofactors: zinc, iron, copper. Organic non-protein cofactors are calledcoenzymes  Reduction: gainof electrons OIL RIG  Oxidation: Loss ofElectrons Oxidation Is Lost Reduction Is Gain  Know the formulas for Photosynthesis and CellularRespiration  To know whether a molecule is oxidized or reduced, follow the reactants,and seeifH is added or lost  Ex: CO2 C H6 12 6 :Hydrogen was added, soCO was2reduced.  Anything ending in ASE is anenzyme Chapter 7: CellularRespiration:  CellularRespiration: alsoknown as Aerobic Respiration, Requires O ,releases CO ,itis 2 2 an aerobic process.Usuallyinvolves the complete breakdown of glucose: o C H O +6O  6CO +6H O 6 12 6 2 2 2 o ADP+P  36-38 ATP  Coenzymes: help an enzyme do its job and may even participate in the reaction o NAD : used as anelectron carrier, becomes NADH o FAD: alsoused as anelectron carrier, becomes FADH 2  3 Phases ofCellularRespiration: o Glycolysis o Citric Acid Cycle/Prep reaction o Electron Transport Chain  Glycolysis:the breakdown of glucoseto 2 molecules of pyruvate o Takes placeinthe cytoplasm o Does not require oxygen o Transforms one 6-carbon molecule, into two 3-carbon molecules Input Output 6C glucose 2 (3C)pyruvate 2 NAD + 2 NADH *Net gainof 2 ATP 2 ATP 2 ADP 4 ADP +P 4 ATP Total o 2 steps:  Energy Investment: 2 molecules of ATP activateglucose  Energy Harvesting: Oxidation ofG3P results inNADH synthesis,and formation of 4 ATP  Startwith 6-carbon glucose  2 ATP are addedto form ADPand attach two phosphatesto theglucose  G3P givesup twoelectronsto convertNAD to NADH and onePis added and thepyruvatesnowhave two phosphorousattached  One Phosphorousisgivenup to convertADPto ATP  Waterisremoved  SubstratelevelATPSynthesis occurs,givingupthefinalPhosphorous to give us ourpyruvates,now readyfor the Prep reaction. Net Gain of 2ATP!!!  Prep Reaction: o Pyruvate is converted to an acetyl group, attached to coenzyme A (CoA), 2nd CO is givenoff. o Hydrogen atoms are removed from pyruvate by NAD to form NADH + H + o This all happens TWICEPER GLUCOSEMOLECULE!!! o 2 pyruvate + 2CoA  2 acetyl CoA +2 CO (N2D +  NADH+H ) +  Citric Acid Cycle o Occurs in the matrix of the mitochondria o Each2 Carbon Acetyl group is oxidized to two CO mo2ecules o 3 NADH+ H & 1FADH 2 o 1 ATP by substrate level synthesis o cycleturns twice per glucose Inputs Outputs 2 Acetyl groups 4 CO2 + + 6 NAD 6 NADH+H 2 FAD 2 FADH 2 2 ADP+P 2 ATP *Figure 7.6 in the book  Mitochondria: “powerhouse” siteof cellularrespiration  Matrix: inner fluid-filledspaceof the Mitochondria  Electron Transport Chain: o In the cristaeof the Mitochondria o Electrons are passedbetween electron carriers o Highenergy electrons enter, low energy electrons leave o Eachcarrier is reduced, then oxidized o Energy is needed to create a hydrogen ion gradient o  This is a linkto the video we watched in class, you don’t need to know all the littlenames, justget a visual on how the hydrogen ion gradient is formed, and how the ATP synthasecomplex is powered.  ATP Synthesis: + o Usegradient of H ions o Energy is captured to form ADP +P o Process is calledchemiosmosis (FIGURE 7.9FOR VISUAL)  In Sum: o We are breaking bonds in glucose,creating bonds elsewhere to transfer potential energy to chemical energy o Energy is transferred to bonds in ATP molecules which areused all over the cell.  Fermentation: o Lactic Acid(Animals)and Alcohol (Plants)Fermentation occur when oxygen is limited. o This is calledanaerobic respiration becauseno oxygen is present inthe reaction. Inputs Outputs Glucose 2 lactateor 2 alcohol/ CO2 2 ATP 2 ADP * Net Gainof 2 ATP 4 ADP +2P 4 ATP Chapter 8: Photosynthesis:  Photosynthesis: conversion of solar energy to chemical energy  Autotroph: anorganism that cando photosynthesis  Heterotroph: cannot produce their own chemical energy through photosynthesis  Chlorophyll: a pigment, (The most important, reflects green light)  Carotenoid: important insome organisms atsome times, such as inthe fall when leaves begin to changecolors.  Stomata: small openings in leaves where CO e2ters the plant  Visiblelight:Lightthat canbe seenwith the human eye,contains different wavelengths of light  Photosynthesis has to sets ofreactions: o Lightreactions: occur in the thylakoid o CalvinCycle/Dark reactions: occur in the stroma of the chloroplast o NADP+ is a cofactor needed for Photosynthesis  6CO 2 6H O 2/solar energy in pigments  C H O 6 12 6 + 6O 2  The LightReactions o Energy is absorbed by chlorophyll o Happens inthe thylakoid o Lightenergy is converted to high energy molecules (ATP and NADPH) o Water is split(Oxygenis released) o Fill in all the boxes and circles!  Non- cyclic lightreactions: 2photosystems o Water can be traced to a molecule of NADPH  Cyclic Lightreactions: 1Photosystem o ATP is all that is formed, and electrons are recycled back to Photosystem I. o Energized electrons leavephotosystem I and return by an electron transport chain. o ATP from cyclic electron transport used in Calvincycleto make carbohydrates  Thylakoid Membrane Organization: o Photosystem II:  Pigment complex and electron acceptors  Water is splitto replace energized electrons  0xygen is released o Electron Transport Chain  Carries electrons from PS II to PS I  Uses energy to pump H ions from the stroma into the thylakoid space o Photosystem I:  Pigment complex and electron acceptors  Adjacent to enzymes that reduce NADP+ to NADPH o ATP Synthase Complex  Has a channel for H flow  Flow drives ATP synthaseto join ADP +P  Figure 8.8 in book CalvinCycle/Dark Reactions  CO 2ixation o Step 1: CO is attachedto RuBP 2 o We have a 6 carbon molecule, which divides into two 3 carbon molecules (3PG)  CO 2eduction o 3PG is reduced to G3P o Energy and electrons from the lightreactions  RuBP regeneration o After 3turns, One G3P (carbohydrate) canleavethe cycle o After 3turns, 5 G3P rearrange to 3 RuBP(5 Carbon molecule)  Reduction of Carbon Dioxide: ATP  ADP+P 3PG  BPG  G3P NADPH  NADP+  Both plants and animals do cellularrespiration  Plant cells photosynthesize, animals do not. Chapter 5: Mitosis and Meiosis:  Mitosis:occurs after interphase, is thedivision of the nucleus  Meiosis:cell divisionfor sexual reproduction. 1 diploid parent cell becomes 4 haploid cells.Divisionhappens twice  Chromatin: DNA +Proteins  Somatic Cells:Bodycells  Daughter cells:divided somatic cells thatcome from their parent  Chromatids: one molecule of DNA  Chromosomes: formed when chromatin coil up when the cell is preparing to divide  Centromere: region that holds together the two sisterchromatids  Apoptosis: programmed cell death, important part of cell development  Ploidy: n, humans are 2n (ploidy is thenumber of copies of a chromosome  Interphase: o G :1rowth (There is a checkpoint after this stage) o S: growth and DNA replication o G :2rowth and final preparations for division (Final checkpoint before mitosis)  Mitosis o Early Prophase: Chromosomes begin to condense, nuclear envelope breaks down o Prophase:  Chromosomes condense  Spindle is formed  Nuclear envelope is gone  Centrosomes beginto separate o Prometaphase  Chromosomes move  Polar spindle fibers stretch from eachpole and overlap o Metaphase: chromosomes lineup atthe center o Anaphase: sisterchromatids pull apart and become daughter chromosomes, eachpole receives anidentical set o Telophase:Cytokinesis begins,nuclear envelope and nucleoli reappear, chromosomes decondense  Cytokinesis: o Divisionof the cytoplasm o Usuallyresults in identical daughter cells (fewexceptions) o Happens differently for plants and animals  In plants: A cell plateis formed  In Animals: a cleavagefurrow is formed  Needs ofCell division: o Anchorage Dependence: most cells divideonly when attached to a surface o Densitydependence inhibition: cells divideuntil they touch each other and then stop.  2 types of genes control the cell cycleinCANCER: o Proto-oncogenes: encode proteins that promote the cell cycleand prevent apoptosis. Canbecome ONCOGENES(Cancercausing)ifmutated o Tumor Suppressor Genes: Encode proteins that stop cell cycleand promote apoptosis  Benigntumors: non-cancerous  Malignant tumors: cancerous  Metastasis:spreadof cancer cells  Carcinomas: cancers that start in lining,external or internal  Sarcomas: cancer in bone or muscle  Leukemias and Lymphomas: cancer in blood producing tissue  Treatments: Chemotherapy and Radiation  Meiosis I: homologous chromosome pairs separate  Meiosis II: sisterchromatids separate  Stages of Meiosis I: o Prophase I:  Homologous chromosomes pair during synapsis  DNA replication  Variations via crossing over o Metaphase I:  Homologous chromosome pairs alignatthe metaphase plate  Independent assortment o Anaphase I: Homologues separate likein Mitosis o TelophaseI: Daughter cells formas inMitosis o Interkinesis: stagebetween Meiosis I and II.At this point: CHROMOSOMES STILL CONSIST OFTWO CHROMATIDS.  Meiosis IIresults in 4 haploid daughter cells,primed for sexual reproduction.  Egg and Sperm cells:1N  Body cells:2N  Fertilized egg:2N I hope this study guide is helpful!!!
