Types of Bonds and Interactions:
o Sharing of electrons between two atoms
o Ionic or electrostatic bonds (full charges).
Ionic bonds refers to a full positive/negative charge. (+/-)
o Hydrogen bonds (partial charges)
Summary (Pg. 275-285): There are five types of chemical reactions: Combustion, Synthesis,
Decomposition, Displacement, and Double-Displacement Reactions. Combustion reaction are
often used to generate energy. It is the reaction of a carbon based compound

Questions (1-7, 11-14 on pg. 285): 1. The formation of a ternary compound is also a synthesis
reaction, because two compounds are combined to form a new compound (def. of synthesis
2. When a binary compound is the only reactant, the products are

3. An atom that has high electronegativity will pull on the electrons more strongly than the other
9. Electron affinity is the energy change when a neutral atom attracts an electron to become more
negative, while electrone
Atoms often bond to one another to form a compound. Such bonding of atoms involves
the sharing of electrons, however not all atoms in a compound share electrons equally. Nonpolar
is when electrons are shared equally, whereas polar means electrons isnt sha
Summary (Pg. 230, 234-239): Molar mass is the mass in grams of one mole of a substance. It
plays a central part in chemical conversions and the usage its conversion factors are the same as
in Avogadros numbers. The average atomic mass is the weighted aver
There are lots of filaments in nuclear matrix and cytoskeleton
But there are probably some kind of difference.
o So to study the difference, you would just get a isolated nuclear matrix fraction.
How to get nuclear matrix:
Marching through the EM system, we went through the RER, went through the golgi, and after
coming out of the golgi, you can either go to the plasma membrane or you can go to lysosome.
Lysosomes: Acidic organelles for degradation and recycling.
Use of Centrifugation to Separate organelles, vesicles and other things.
Centrifugation can be used to separate organelles, and other things.
Spinning at different speeds
o Separation based primarily on size and weight.
Division of a single cell.
Two main considerations:
Nuclear Division: Mitosis.
When cell divides, first thing it has to do is divide the nuclear contain.
Take the DNA split it in half, and then go into cell division.
Three possibilities for DNA replication in bacteria.
Set up three rational possibility for DNA replication.
Experiment are done to test out the experiments.
o The data will help determine which hypothesis makes sense.
o When you have do
Oxidized Compound (wants electrons)
o Reducing agent needed, it donates electrons; Oxidized compound will accept
electrons and protons.
Once it accepts the electron, it becomes a reduced compound. (Gets the

o Triglycerides have 3 fatty acid side chains.
Phospholipids have 2 fatty acid side chinas.
o One of the fatty acid side chain is replaced with a head-group.

o Sugars/Saccharides . Usually polar, but not charged
Many are polar enough to be water soluble and not be fully charged
Some can be charged but many many are uncharged.

Sorting Proteins into Transition Vesicles:
How can you sort things to go into the right vesicle and know what is in the vesicle.
Take a transmembrane protein that have receptors on both sides.
Receptor on the lumen and the cytoplasm side.
