Pyruvate is produced in the cytoplasm* Deductive reasoning: a type of logic in which specific results are predicated for a general premise - General to specific Detoxification: physical process of freeing the body of an addictive substance Diploid: cell containing teo sets of chromosomes (2 n ), one set inherited from each parent - Somatic cells* Disulfide bridge: strong covalent bond formed when the sulfur of one cysteine monomer bonds to the sulfur of another cysteine monomer DNA: a double stranded, helical nucleic acid molecule, consisting of nucleotide nitrogenous base adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G), and thymine (T)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
