How are membranes adjusted for different temperatures? Transport of materials across the membrane What types of molecules can move across the membrane? Simple diffusion Facilitated diffusion Active Transport Tonicity and aquatic organisms - from lecture Hyper-, hypo- and isotonic Osmosis and the direction of net water movement Figures 7.2, 7.3, 7.5, 7.11, 7.13 , 7.17 Function of enzymes How they work Coenzymes Inhibition (Figures 8.17, 8.19, 8.20 and 8.21) Competitive, Noncompetitive, Allosteric, Feedback Circe Effect Metabolic Pathway regulation Stability of biological molecules Effects of temperature on reaction rates Thermostability Upper temperature limit for life Cold- and warm-adapted homologs Figures 8.14 and 8.15 - know these figures well. Be sure you understand them and can explain them.
