Bio Unit 2 Exam Study Guide Essay structures of a protein The primary structure of a protein is the linear sequence of amino acids The secondary structure of a protein is Alpha helical regions amp beta pleated sheets both of which are held together through hydrogen bonds The tertiary structure of a protein is the three dimensional shape formed by the interactions between R groups The quaternary structure of a protein is an association of multiple polypeptides Primary upon denaturation it stays intact linear sequence of amino acids Secondary backbone of a protein Alpha helixes brous proteins have more beta pleated sheets globular proteins held together by Hydrogen bonds Tertiary 3D shape that determines function of protein interactions of R groups are important and h bonds happen between them Di sul de bonds are covalent bonds that are very important and hold the whole structure together Quaternary 2 or more polypeptide chains make one macromolecule can be the same polypeptides or different ones Denaturation Salt and pH break up R groups which breaks tertiary structure and that creates function so it makes it all fall apart Salt Na Cl dissociate into ions and sodium and chlorine will compete for R groups bond This ill break apart R group39s interactions with one another pH OH and H will compete for R group bonds and will break up R groups interactions Temperature vibrates and breaks apart stuff Short answers Receptormediated endocytosis Very highly selective Receptors for certain solutes only works for certain thing receptors ill bind to solute and it will trigger clathrin coated pit that buds off and formed coated vesicle 3 steps Receptor binding formation of pit vesicle buds off and goes where it needs to go Example cholestrol Signal Transduction get

signals Can make transcription factor and make a new protein Hyperactive ras relay protein growth factor ordinarily proteins get secreted but ras relay protein takes over no growth factor no cell talk hyperactive sends its own signal growth shouldn39t be happening proteins made when no signal said it should in the rst place cancer P53 tumor suppressor gene growth inhibiting factor should stop growth but nonfunctional transcription factor doesn39t signal transcription of protein that should stop growth Osmosis Passive transport of water across a selectively permeable membrane Water molecules readily pass through the cell membrane even though they are polar because of protein channels caed 39 aquaporins Water diffuses until the solute to water concentration is equal on both sides Tonicity Hypertonic Inside LS HW and outsideHS LW and so water moves out shnvel Hypotonic Inside HS LW and outside HW LS and so water moves into cell burst Covalent bonds are the strongest two atoms chare one or more pairs of electrons Nonpolar atoms exert an equal pull on the electrons the electrons are shared equally Polar Unequal sharing of electrons negatively charged electrons get pulled

motion and they collide with each other and bounce off others and spread into open space If the membrane is permeable to a molecule the molecule can easily pass through membrane Equilibrium when the number of molecules moving in one direction is equal to the number of molecules moving in the opposite direction Concentration Gradient substances tend to move from areas of high concentration where a ton of molecules are to areas of less concentration where fewer are Passive Transport diffusion across a membrane that requires no energy 02 and C02 diffuse easily Facilitated Diffusion passage of a substance through a speci c transport protein across a biological membrane down its concentration gradient Transport proteins help substances that do not diffuse freely across membrane without them certain substances wouldn39t be able to cross membrane or would take too long amp wouldn39t be useful tproteins are speci c for the substance they help No energy is used because it is a type of passive transport and works with the concentration gradient Polar molecules and ions use facilitated diffusion Aquaporin the transport protein that helps move water across membrane bc water is polar Active Transport energy ATP must be expended to move a solute against its concentration gradient toward the side where the solute is more concentrated 1 Solute Binding solute on the cytoplasmic side of the plasma membrane attaches to a speci c binding site on the transport protein 2 Phosphate Attaching Phosporylation ATP transfers one of its phosphate groups to the transport protein 3 Transport Protein changes shape in such a way that the solute goes through and is released on the other side of the membrane 4 Protein reversion Phosphate group detaches and transport protein returns to its original shape Exocytosis export bulky materials ex Proteins and polysaccharides Transport vesicle lled with macromolecules buds from Golgi goes to plasma membrane then vesicles fuse with membrane and vesicle39s contents spill out of cell Tears are when salty solutions get exported through exocytosis Endocytosis cell takes in large molecules Depression in the plasma membrane pinches in and forms a vesicle enclosing material that had been outside the cell Three kinds Phagocytosis quotcellular eatingquot cell engulfs a particle by wrapping extensions called pseudopodia around it and packaging it

cells Rough makes phospholipids that help plasma membrane grow bc vesicles go off and add to them bound on rER or membrane or secreted by cell Golgi Comes to receiving end and adds to membrane of Golgi contents move through and then modi cation glycosylation or phosphorylation buds off and vesicles is made from membrane of Golgi Lysosome They digest everything They bind to vacuoles and digest it all and can recycle things to organic parts Plasma Membrane forms a exible boundary between the living cell and its surroundings Phospholipid hydrophilic heads face into the cell exposed to the

mainly globular act like train tracks for organelles to move along like lysosomes Extracellular Matrix forms tissues and helps protect cell main component is glycoprotein lntegrins transmit signals between ECM and cytoskeleton JuncUons Tight prevents leakage knit together by proteins Anchor strength and stability intermediate laments stretch or mechanical stress Gap communicating Plants cell wall made of cellulose and plasmodesmata that prevents isolation and keeps open channels of water nutrients and helps chemical signals go from one cell to another Plants do not have lysosomes they use contractile vacuoles to digest and to keep things that you don39t want in other parts of the cell like plant pigment and antiherbivore compounds like nicotine or caffeine The small size of cells relates to the need to exchange materials across the plasma membrane Cell must be large enough to house enough DNA protein molecules and structures to survive and reproduce Large cells have more surface area than small cells but much less surface area relative to their volume Bonus What level of protein structure determines function What level of protein structure is considered the backbone of a protein What is a polypeptide Tertiary Secondary A linear chain of amino acids What are transmembrane proteins Transmembrane proteins typically have regions of what two classi cations of amino acids Where are the different classi cations found within the protein What part of the amino acid determines its classi cation Chitin exoskeleton of insects and crustaceans Endosymbiotic theory mitochondria and chloroplast very close to prokaryotes Single circular chromosome ribosomes and reproduce by splitting Made their way into eukaryotic cells and stayed bc aerobic environment These
