C.) Eukaryotic organelles are enclosed by lipid membranes. There are those that have double-membrane compartments such as chloroplast and mitochondria among others. Single-membrane compartment organelles include endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus. However, Ribosomes do not have a membrane. The breakdown of the membranes of these structures, affect the function of his heart cells because lysosomal enzymes which are normally bound safely inside vesicles will digest the plasma membranes and the membranes of the organelles.
Voltage-gated sodium ion channels are made of amino acids and are necessary for the initiation and propagation of action potentials. 6. Why do sodium ions need channels in order to move into and out of cells? Sodium ions need channels in order to move in and out of the cell because to move in and out on the cell the ion has to pass through the plasma membrane. However the plasma membrane works as a barrier separation the cell from the extracellular fluid, and the interior of the plasma membrane contain hydrophobic tails, which blocks the movement of charged ions to move in and out.
Explain how this can lead to either a graded potential or a hyperpolarization. Depending on which ligand gated ion channel the neurotransmitter binds to will determine the kind of change that occurs on the postsynaptic membrane. Opening of channels such as sodium channels which will make the inner membrane surface more positive will depolarize the membrane. Whereas opening of channels such as potassium channels that will make the inner membrane surface less positive will hyperpolarize the membrane.
3. The role of the sarcoplasmic reticulum releases calcium ions that will cause the troponin/ tropomyosin complex to move. This will expose the binding sites on actin so that the cross-bridges of myosin can bind to it. *High calcium concentrations = concentration occurs (bind to troponin – moves tropomyosin out of the way to reveal the hidden receptor site) *Low calcium concentrations = concentration does not occur (troponin goes back – move the tropomyosin back in the way of the myosin = blocks). (Calcium ions) are stored in the Sarcoplasmic reticulum.
PROTEINS 6: A difference in the concentration of a chemical on both sides of a membrane leads to which of the following phenomena? DIFFUSION 7: Which of the following eukaryotic organelles is responsible for the production of ATP? MITOCHONDRION 8: Glucose is A MONOSACCHARIDE Glucose is a monosaccharide; it is both an important energy molecule by itself and a building block of more complex carbohydrate 9: Which of the following is considered a neutral pH? 7.2 10: Due to the semipermeable nature of a phospholipid membrane, all of the following types of substances will normally be kept on one side of the membrane EXCEPT NON-POLAR MOLECULES 11: A molecule that gains an electron from another molecule will experience A REDUCTION in its overall electrical charge. 12: Hydrolysis reactions ARE EXOTHERMIC 13: If a molecule is described as "organic," this means it CONTAINS CARBON AND HYDROGEN 14: Glucose is a sugar with six carbons.
* An electrogenic pump is a transport protein that generates voltage across a membrane * Animal- sodium/potassium * Plants- proton pump Understand how a co-transporter works. Where you likely find one? Understand how large molecules and particles are transported across membranes including the role of Vesicles. What is meant by endocytosis? There are several types – what are they and how do they differ?
Mineralocorticoids, mostly aldosterone, are essential to regulation of electrolyte concentrations of extracellular fluids. 2. Aldosterone secretion is regulated by the renin-angiotensin mechanism, fluctuating blood concentrations of sodium and potassium ions, and secretion of ACTH. 3. Glucocorticoids are released in response to stress through the action of ACTH.
Unit 13 P2 Describe how materials of different states pass into and out of cells. The cells plasma membrane is not only used for structural purposes. Its functions to allow certain substances in and out of the cell. It can allow other substances into the cell against the concentration gradient or allow other substances (for example waste) out of the cell. There are two ways that the cell can transport substances; passive transport processes and active transport processes.
The Effect of Diffusion and Osmosis on Hypertonic and Hypotonic Solutions. Introduction: In order to maintain homeostasis, a cell must be able to transport materials back and forth across the membrane due to the fact that cell membranes are selectively permeable. Selectively permeable means that some substances can pass through the membrane while others cannot, like glucose, proteins and carbohydrates. Both solutes and solvents may cross the cell membrane. Solutes meaning: the substance that is being dissolved, while solvents meaning: substance being dissolved into, much like diffusion.
Aim: To find out the effect of the temperature on the permeability of the cell membrane. Research Question: Effect of temperature on amount of pigment Background: Cell membranes contain many different types of molecules/substances that help maintain the overall structure, fluidity and functioning of the membrane. It is mainly consisted of a phospholipid bilayer, with a hydrophilic phosphate head and a hydrophobic lipid tail. The phospholipid bilayer is effective in stopping molecules from exiting or entering the call. Since the membrane has a non-polar layer in its centre and two polar layers on either side, it is difficult for both polar and non-polar molecules to pass through both layers.
