Sunday, October 2, 2016 Biology I Test 2 Study Guide Chapter 6: Energy and Enzymes - Laws of Thermodynamics • 1st : Law of Conservation of Energy - Energy cannot be created or destroyed - Energy can be transformed from one type to another • 2nd: - Transfer or transformation of energy from one form to another increases entropy - Entropy: the degree of disorder in a system • Most commonly lost as heat • Sun can be seen as source for all energy - Energy in Chemical Reactions: • Exergonic: spontaneous reaction; the change in G is (-) • Endergonic: requires addition of free energy; the change in G is (+) - Overcoming activation energy: • Large amounts of heat • Using enzymes to lower activation energy - Inhibitors: molecules that prevent the substrate from binding to the enzyme • Competitive: molecule that binds to the active site; inhibits the substrate to bind; more substrate needed • Noncompetitive: inhibitor binds to allosteric site- not active site; inhibits ability of substrate to bind; conformation change - Catabolic Reactions: • breakdown of reactants used for recycling • Sunday, October 2, 2016 • obtain energy for endergonic reactions • energy stored in energy intermediates (ATP, NADH) - Anabolic Reactions: • biosynthetic reactions • Endergonic- must be coupled to exergonic reactions - Redox reactions: Oxidation: removal of electrons • • Reduction: addition of electrons - Regulation of metabolic pathways: • Gene regulation • Cellular regulation • Biochemical regulation - Allosteric site recognizes the final product once enough has been made and cuts off the process completely Chapter 7: Cellular Respiration and Fermentation - Cellular respiration is one of the main metabolic processes • Primary aim is to make ATP and NADH - Glucose Metabolism • C6H12O6 + 6 O2 --> 6 CO2 + 6 H2O • Four metabolic pathways: - Glycolysis: • breakdown of glucose into pyruvate • can occur with or without oxygen (anaerobic) • occurs in the cytosol Sunday, October 2, 2016 • 10 steps in 3 phases: - Energy Investment: steps 1-3 • 2 ATP hydrolyzed to create fructose -1, 6 diphosphate - Cleavage: steps 4-5 • 6 carbon molecule broken into two 3 carbon molecules of gylceraldehyde-3-phosphate (G3P) - Energy Liberation: Steps 6-10 • two G3P molecules broken down into two pyruvate molecules producing 2 NADH and 4 ATP (final products of glycolysis) - NET YIELD IN ATP AND NADH OF 2 - Breakdown of pyruvate to an acetyl group: • Pyruvate transported to mitochondrial matrix and broken down by pyruvate dehydrogenase • CO2 removed from each pyruvate • remaining acetyl group attached to CoA to make acetyl CoA • 1 NADH IS MADE FROM EACH PYRUVATE - Citric acid cycle • Acetyl CoA is attached to Oxaloacetate to form citric acid • TOTAL YEILD IS 4 CO2, 2 ATP, 6 NADH, AND 2 FADH2 (the cycle must run 2 times due to it being a molecule of Glucose) - Oxidative phosphorylation • High energy electrons removed rom NADH and FADH to make ATP • Phosphorylation occurs by ATP Synthase • Electron Transport Chain (ETC) - Occurs in the inter mitochondrial membrane - Generates a H+ electrochemical gradient in order to send H+ ions back to the other side to generate ATP through ATP Synthase (produces from 30-34 ATP molecules per glucose molecule) Sunday, October 2, 2016 - Anaerobic Metabolism • Uses substance other than O2 as final electron acceptor • Ex. Ecoli - Fermentation • Make ATP via glycolysis only • Need to regenerate NAD+ to keep glycolysis going Yeast make ethanol • • Produces far less ATP Chapter 8: Photosynthesis - 6CO2 + 6H2O ------> C6H12O6 + 6O2
 Sunlight energy - IS NOT A SPONTANEOUS REACTION - 2 stages of photosynthesis 1. Light Reactions (Light Dependent Reactions) - Uses light energy from the sun to produce ATP, NADPH, and O2 - Takes place in the thylakoid membranes - PSII (Photo System II)- Excited electrons travel to PSI (Photo System I) • Water is oxidized (split) and generates O2 and H+ • Releases electron into transport chain • Energy used to make H+ electrochemical gradient to generate ATP through ATP Synthase - PSI (Photo System I)- Primary role to make NADPH • Addition of H+ to NADP contributes to H+ electrochemical gradient SUMMARY OF LIGHT DEPENDENT REACTIONS: 1. O2 produced in thylakoid lumen by oxidation of H2O by PSII Sunday, October 2, 2016 2. Electron transported to ETC 3. NADPH produced in the stroma from high-energy electrons that start in PSII and boosted in PSI 4. NADP+ +2 electrons + H+ —> NADPH 5. ATP produced in stroma by H+ electrochemical gradient 2. Calvin Cycle (Light Independent Reactions) - Used to make carbohydrates - For every 6 CO2 incorporated, 18 ATP and 12 NADPH are used - G3P is formed as starting materials for the formation of sugars - 3 Phases of the Calvin Cycle: 1. Carbon Fixation • CO2 incorporated into RuBP (a five carbon sugar) to form a 6 Carbon intermediate - able to be attached by the enzyme Rubisco • 6 Carbon intermediates split into two 3PG (NOT G3P!!!!) 2. Reduction and Carbohydrate Production • ATP is used to convert 3PG into one, 3-BPG • NADPH electrons reduce it to G3P • 12 G3P produced in phase 2 - 2 for carbohydrates - 10 for regeneration of RuBP (5 G3P to regenerate 3 RuBP) 3. Regeneration of RuBP • 10 G3P converted into 6 RuBP using 6 ATP Cycle is able to continue • Sunday, October 2, 2016 - LIGHT, TEMPERATURE, AND WATER AVAILABILITY WILLAFFECT PHOTOSYNTHESIS - Look over C4 plants and CAM plants Chapter 9: Cell Communication - Types of cell-to-cell communication • Direct Intercellular Signaling • Contact-Dependent Signaling • Autocrine Signaling • Paracrine Signaling • Endocrine Signaling - 3 Stages of Cell Signaling • Receptor Activation - Signaling molecule binds to receptor - Causes conformation change of receptor - Activates function • Signal Transduction - Stimulates sequence of changes in intracellular proteins in signal transduction pathway - Produces intracellular signaling molecule • Cellular Response - Several different responses on target • Altering activity of one or more enzymes • Altering of structural protein function • Change gene expression- transcription factor Sunday, October 2, 2016 Chapter 11: DNA Replication and Chromosome Structure - Know basic DNA and RNA review information (structure, pairings, etc.) - RNA is single stranded - DNA is double stranded - Nucleotide Strands: • Directionally 5 prime to 3 prime • 3 prime- OH • 5 prime- Phosphate - DNA: A-T, C-G - RNA: A-U, C-G • 2 Hydrogen bonds between A-T • 3 Hydrogen bonds between C-G - 2 DNA strands are ANTIPARALLEL - Semi-Conservative Replication • 2 parental strands separate and act as template strands • Product: 2 new double helices with same base sequence as original - IMPORTANT ENZYMES: - Telomeres: Series of short nucleotide sequences repeated at the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes to compensate for DNA not being lost or cut into - Primase: RNA primase; lays the primer to begin the copying of DNA nucleotides - DNA Polymerase: builds the new strands of DNA - Helicase: unzips the DNA - Topoisomerase: keeps the DNA from supercoiling and getting tangled up - SSBPs (Single Stranded Binding Proteins): keep the two original strands from snapping back together during the copying process Sunday, October 2, 2016 You can only build off of a 3 prime end and must go in one direction towards the 5 prime end Scanned by CamScanner Scanned by CamScanner
