14.1. Microtubule-based movement inside cells: kinesins and dyneins.
The mechanical work needed for movement depends on microtubule-associated motor
proteins that attach to vesicles or organelles and then move along the MT, using ATP to
provide the neede
a. A single molecule of palmitate is 2.08 nm (0.13 nm x 16 carbons).
A single molecule of Laurate is 1.56 nm (0.13 nm x 12 carbons).
A single molecule of Arachidate is 2.6 nm (0.13 nm x 20 carbons).

12.5 exocytosis and endocytosis: transporting material across the plasma membrane.
Exocytosis releases intracellular molecules outside the cell.
o Animal cells secrete peptide and protein hormones, mucus, and several digestive
enzymes during exocytosis.
13.1. Major structural elements of the cytoskeleton.
1. Table 13-1 and 13-3.
2. FtsZ protein is produced by certain eukaryotic organelles, such as the chloroplasts and
mitochondria, and localizes to sites where these organelles divide.
- All the enzymes and other proteins required for chromosome replication and transcription of
DNA in the nucleus must be imported from the cytosol.
- All the RNA molecules and partially assembled ribosomes needed for protein synthesis in
