Description and major functions of nervous system in humans
Description and major functions of the central nervous system and peripheral nervous
system. What makes up the
The LB+ plasmid and LB-plasmid both showed lawns.
The only difference between the two was that the + contained the plasmid with the gene for
The occurrence of lawns showed that bacteria grow normally in the absenc
Multiple alleles: trait or gene has 2 or more forms of alleles (blood types), but you
only possess 2 alleles
Polygenic traits: trait that is controlled by more than one gene (eye/hair color)
Carrier: heterozygous individuals who carries recessive allele,
Ions such as Na+ and K+ can only diffuse across the membrane through ion channels.
K+, which has been pumped into the cell, can only exit in small amounts through the few
K+ ion channels that are open.
Neurons can produce action potentials because they ha
Hydrogen bonds exist between complimentary nitrogen bases on the opposite strands
The two parts of the nucleotide that are the same for all nucleotides are the phosphate
group and deoxyribose sugar.
The nitrogen base is always attached to the deox
Allele - an alternate or variable form of a gene
Genotype the allele combinations an organism has for a given trait
Phenotype - the expression of a pair of alleles
Homozygous - having 2 of the same alleles for a given trait
Heterozygous - having
If it were administered orally, digestive enzymes such as pepsin would hydrolyze the
protein into inactive fragments.
Hormone 2, which is cholesterol-derived, can be administered orally because it
will be absorbed from the digestive track and into the blo
DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid.
DNA is found in all living organisms.
DNA is found in the cytoplasm of prokaryotic cells, and in the nucleus of eukaryotic
In eukaryotic cells, DNA is in two forms: chromatin and chromosome.
Chromatin and chrom
Major functions of digestive system
Diagram(s) that includes the major parts mouth/salivary glands/teeth, esophagus,
stomach, small intestine (include villi, microvilli), large intestine, liver/gall bladder,
pancreas, and large intestine/rectum/anus .
Major functions of circulatory system
Diagram(s) that includes the major parts - heart, arteries, arterioles, veins, venules,
capillaries - and describe the structure/function(s) of each.
Pulmonary vs. Systemic circulation
Distinguish between arteries and
