STUDY GUIDE #1
a) Describe three differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
Prokaryotic cells are more simple than eukaryotic cells. They lack a nucleus and are
found in single celled organisms such as archea and bacteria. They do not perfor
a) Cells must regulate all protein functions. Overall, how can protein function be controlled
in cells (this is not about allosteric vs. phosphorylation yet, but more general)?
1. We can regulate the proteins synthesis. 2. We can regulate the act
a. Describe three differences b/t prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells
(I) Prokaryotes DNA is circular and flowing in the cytosol. Eukaryotes DNA is linear and
enclosed in nucleus.
(II) Prokaryotes dont have membrane-bounded organelles. Eukaryotes ha
56. 6 Carbon dioxide + 6 Water -> Glucose + 6 Oxygen
a) In photosynthesis overall, which atoms in which molecules are reduced, which are oxidized,
and why is energy required?
The carbons in carbon dioxide are reduced, the oxygen in water is ox
a) What process does the term "translation" refer to?
Using RNA copy of genetic info to synthesize protein (an amino acid sequence).
b) Name the activated monomers for translation.
c) In which of the pairs listed can at least
