11 October 2006 Diffusion: Facilitated Diffusion Channel proteins- act as hydrated tunnels Aquaporins-special channel proteins Ion channel-also channel proteins Diffuses ions into and out of cells. Carrier proteins Binds to “substance in question” Glucose permease-protein in Red blood cells Once it enters the red blood cells, it is converted to “Glucose-Phosphate” Example is the thyroids: Contains a high concentration of iodine The iodine moves against the concentration gradient (from the bloodstream to the thyroids) This movement requires ATP energy Requires a carrier protein This is an example of active transport

Unformatted text preview: SEE PICTURE!! (LDL) Hypercholesterenia An inherited disease in which a bad receptor protein gene is copied Causes infected person to have fewer or no receptors because the receptors do not have a tail (see LDL picture to see function of tail) Cellular Respiration: How a cell breaks down food and captures and restores the released energy to make ATP. Catabolic reaction Redox reaction Exergonic reaction (notice the negative sign) **the brain ONLY breaks down glucose to make its energy breathing vs. respiration= not the same!! Respiration: Glycolysis Citric Acid Cycle aka Krebs Cycle discovered by Hans Krebs 11 October 2006 Oxidative Phosphorylation: Electron transport system chemiosmosis...
