c. The endomembrane system includes the nuclear envelope.
d. The endomembrane system is a system of interrelated membranes that are all physically
e. The endomembrane system divides the cell into compartments.

a. two cells were juxtaposed and one benefited from the other. b.
e. one cell was dependent on the other for survival.
a small cell lived inside a larger cell to the benefit of both cells.
a large cell engulfed and digested a smaller cell, exposing its enzymes for use by the
two cells merged into one cell, improving the enzyme function of the new cell. 8. Briefly describe the function of the following: (1pts)
a. Golgi Apparatus
b. Ribosome c. Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum d. Mitochondria e. Lysosome 9. Match the following
E) Golgi Apparatus F) Mitochondria

1. Describe the action of enzymes (how they work to catalyze a reaction). How do they
affect Ea? Be sure to include active site and induced fit (1). **Hint: drawing a picture is
sometimes easier 2. Define hypotonic, hypertonic and isotonic. What happens to an animal cell placed in a
hypertonic solution? A hypotonic solution? A plant cell in an isotonic solution? 3. A cell uses 3 types of inhibition. _______________ inhibition is when an inhibitor
blocks the active site of an enzyme, preventing it from binding. _________________
when an inhibitor binds to someplace on the enzyme other than the active site and
shape preventing it from functioning. _________________ inhibition is when the product
reaction builds up and acts as an inhibitor.
