Adaptations quiz

study stack for adaptations quiz

enzymes proteins that speed up chemical reactions by lowering the activation energy. controls the rate at which food is broken down in our body
lipids (fat) biomolecule used for energy and insulation
enzymes directly control the rate at which food is broken down
pseudopod structure in ameoba used for movement by cytoplasmic streaming
organic molecules such as carbohydrates, proteins and lipids contain carbon
negative chemotaxis moving away from a harmful chemical
activation site the part of the enzyme substrate complex where the enzyme binds with the substrate
passive immunity when an individual receives pre made antibodies. example mother passing immunity to baby through breast milk.
kidney used in complex animals to remove excess water and nitrogen
xylem and phloem transport structure in plants similar to the blood vessels in humans
contractile vacuole structure in protist used to excrete excess water, similar to the excretory system in humans.
lungs and moist skin allow for respiration on land
transpiration how plants move excess water and oxygen out of their leaves, similar to respiration in animals
guard cells cells that surround the stoma and prevent excess water loss by closing the stoma
endoskeleton skeleton that grows with the organism allows organism to reach a much larger size
exoskeleton protective outer structure that must be shed each time the organism grows
gills allow for respiration under water
nonvascular plants must use diffusion to get materials into and out of cells
cilia hair like structures that allow single cell organism to move
eyespot structurs in euglenas that allow them to detect light
small intestine Structure used for absorption of nutrients long in length, projections to increase surface area
diffusion what microorganism use for transport since there is no circulatory system present
salivary amalayse enzyme in the mouth that dissovles food so we can taste it
contractile vacuole allows unicellular organims to excrete excess water so they don't explode
antiviral medicine that slows down the rate at which a virus can replicate so decrease the length of the disease
active immunity immunty in which the organims must make their own antibodies, last a life time. examples are vaccines and getting sick
