For each of the following microscopic specimens (except the first), name it and estimate its approximate size. State the type of microscope that was used to take the picture. Name at least one other type of microscope that could have been used to view that particular specimen. Explain whether the microscope that was used was the best choice or not. So you'll be completing a table that looks something like this:
Specimen A. Capsid protein
Size 10 nm
Microscope type CryoEM
Which is best? Why? AFM would give a higher resolution
image of the individual proteins
A. 100 A D: List the structural interactions that allow a capsid protein to fold into its 3-D shape.
B. Q: How are these structures used medically in some countries, and why don't we in the US use them for this purpose?
G. Q: What would happen if previous IEN this organism were placed in specimen k SC distilled water? What about if it were placed in a hypertonic salt solution?
E. previous specimen Q: How can this organism get so large? Describe the components of its physiology that allow it to carry out efficient internal transport.
D. previous specimen Q: This organism has two life forms. Which one is this? How do you know? How does it obtain nutrition?
C. previous specimen O: What is the unique system this organism uses to uptake sugars? List two advantages of this sustem, compared to the way other cells uptake sugars.
