Exam 2 Study Guide  Cells o Diffusion  Tendency of molecules to move from an area of high concentration to a  low concentration  Often goes with the concentration gradient  Transport proteins help in a process called facilitated diffusion o Passive transport  Along the concentration gradient  Requires no energy o Active Transport  Requires energy  Typically moves against the concentration gradient o Osmosis  The passive diffusion of water  Osmoregulation  The control of water balance o Exergonic Reaction  Releases energy in covalent bonds of reaction  A good example is cellular respiration  Uses released energy for ATP o Endergonic Reaction  Requires an input of energy  A good example is photosynthesis  Yields products rich in energy o Metabolism  Total of an organisms chemical reaction  Metabolic Pathway  Builds a complex molecule  Breaks down complex molecules to be simple  ATP o Adenosine Triphosphate o Nitrogenous Base  Adenine o Five Carbon Sugars  Ribose o Three Phosphate Groups o Enzymes  Lower activation energy  Engage at the active site  Can be aided by coenzymes o Feedback Inhibition  The product acts as an inhibitor of one of the enzymes in the path it  produced  Cellular Respiration o Glucose + Oxygen ­> Carbon Dioxide + Water + Heat  Glucose loses hydrogen atoms and oxidizes to Carbon Dioxide  Most organs prefer to run on glucose o Oxygen  Gains Hydrogen atoms  Reduces to water o The movement of elctrons from one molecule to another is called a redox  reaction  The loss of electrons fromone substance is oxidation (Gains charge)  The addition of electrons is reduction (Reduces charge) o NAD +  Important coenzyme in oxidizing glucose  Accepts electrons  Reduces to NADH  Autotrophs o Make their own food o Archaea; lithotrophs, chemotrophs can use sulfur and other inorganics as an  energy source o Do not consume organic molecules derived from other organisms o Photoautotrophs use energy from light to produce organic molecules  Heterotrophs o Consumers that feed on plants, animals, or decompose organic matter  Photosynthesis in plants o Occurs in chloroplasts, o Converts carbon dioxide and water into organic molecules o Releases oxygen o Chloroplasts are concentrated in the cells of the mesophyll, the green tissue of the  inner leaf o Stomata are tiny pores in the leaf that allow carbon dioxide to enter and oxygen to exit o Chlorophyll   Light absorbing pigment in chloroplast  Found in thylakoid membrane o Light reactions  Thylakoid membranes  Water is split, giving off oxygen as a byproduct  ATP is generated  Light energy is absorbed by the chlorophyll to drive the transfer of  electrons in water to the electron acceptor NADP o Calvin Cycle  Occurs in stroma  Called the dark reactions  Light independent  Assembles sugar molecules using carbon dioxide Carbon dioxide  incorporation into organic compounds is called carbon fixation o Light reactions  Visible light is only a small part of the electromagnetic spectrum (380nm­ 750nm)  The wavelength I the distance between the crests of the waves o Chloroplasts contain different pigments that absorb different light wavelengths o Cell division  Is reproduction at cellular level  Requires the duplication of chromosomes  Sorts new sets of chromosomes into resulting pair of daughter cells  Mitosis  For reproduction of singe celled organisms  Meiosis  Sperm and egg production  Asexual reproduction  Identical offspring to parent cell  All genes inherited  Sexual reproduction  Similar traits to parents but has variations  Inheritance of unique sets of genes from both parents  Binary Fission  Done by prokaryotes  Chromosome of prokaryotes are o Singular circle strand of DNA o Much smaller than that of a eukaryote o Occurs in three steps  Eukaryotic Chromosomes  Made of chromatin  Consist of o One long DNA molecule o Proteins help maintain structure and control the activity of  its genes  Eukaryote cells duplicate all their chromosomes before splitting o These are sister chromatids o Joined by a narrow part called the centromere  Cancer o A tumor is an abnormally growing mass of body cells  Benign tumors remain at original site  Malignant tumors spread to other locations called metastasis  Chromosomes o In humans somatic cells have  23 pairs of homologous chromosomes  One pair from each parent o The human sex chromosomes X and Y differ in size and genetic composition  Life cycle o Stages going from  Adults to the next generation  Adults to the next  Meiosis o Process that converts diploid nuclei to haploid nuclei  Diploid Cells  Two homologous sets of chromosomes  Haploid cells  `Have one set of chromosomes o Occurs in the sex organs, producing gametes, sperm and eggs o Fertilization is the union of sperm and egg o The zygote has a diploid chromosome number, one set from each parent o Meiosis is followed by two consecutive cell divisions o Mitosis is followed by one cell division  Meiosis by the phases o Prophase 1  Chromosomes coil and compact  Homologous chromosomes come together as a pairs by synapsis  Four chromatids called tetrad  Nonsister chromatids exchange genetic material by crossing over o Meiosis 1­ Metaphase 1  Tetrads align at the cell equator o Meiosis 1­ Anaphase 1  Homologous pairs separate and move apart o Meiosis 1­ Telophase 1  Duplicated chromosomes have reached the poles  A nuclear envelope re­forms around chromosomes in some species  Each nucleus has the haploid number of chromosomes o Meiosis II – Prophase II  Chromosomes coil and become compact (if uncoiled after telophase I).   Nuclear envelope, if re­formed, breaks up again.  o Meiosis II – Metaphase II – Duplicated chromosomes align at the cell equator. o Meiosis II – Anaphase II  Sister chromatids separate and  chromosomes move toward opposite poles o Meiosis II – Telophase II   Chromosomes have reached the poles of the cell.  A nuclear envelope forms around each set of chromosomes.  With cytokinesis, four haploid cells are produced
