hypotonic Low concentration of a solute in a solution
isotonic equal concentration of solute between Two solutions
3 components of ATP 3 phosphates, adenine, and ribose
sun Ultimate source of energy for all living organisms
reactants in photosynthesis radiant energy
two end products of photosynthesis oxygen and glucose
Thylakoid where the light reaction of photosynthesis occurs
ATP & NADPH two products made in the light reactions necessary to run the Calvin cycle
the oxygen in which organisms depend for cellular respiration comes from what process photosynthesis
thylakoid where light reaction and electron transport chain are
ATP is an important energy transfer molecule because it when the third phosphate of ATP is removed what is released Chemical energy
why are photosynthesis and cellular respiration considered the opposites of each other The products of them are the reactants of the other
Krebs cycle this cycle of cellular respiration produces high energy carriers that provide the electrons for the electron transport chain
36 ATP in cellular respiration
Stroma jelly like, in chloroplasts, where Calvin cycle takes place
light to chemical photosynthesis energy transfer
pyruvate three carbon end product of glycolysis
Matrix of the mitochondria Krebs cycle occurs here
CO2 gas released during krebs cycle
Violet blue and red light Colors of chlorophyll absorbs
Greenlight plants appear green because they reflect this color
pigment molecule that absorbs wave lengths of light and reflects other ones
fermentation process that occurs in the muscle cells of animals when oxygen is absent
why Krebs cycle occurs twice there are two pyruvates
role of oxygen in ETC H2O and final electronic acceptor
what is the equation for alcohol fermentation pyruvate + NADH --> CO2 + ethanol + NAD
sides of DNA strand phosphate and sugar
codon 3 base sequence of messenger RNA
Rosalind Franklin and Maurice Wilkins developed the x-ray crystallography that used it diffraction patterns to determine that DNA structure was a helix
rungs of DNA strand adenine, Thymine , guanine, and cytosine
template something you can copy
site of translation ( organelle ) ribosome
anti-codon TRA (3basesequence)
two enzymes in replication helicase and DNA polymerase

two differences between DNA and RNA DNA is double-stranded and DNA has thymine
Job of tRNA takes amino acids to the right side
hydrogen bond between bases
diploid refers to a cell that contains sets of Homologous chromosomes
telophase two this phase of meiosis results and four daughter cells each haploid
metaphase – mitosis chromosomes line up along the equator of the cell
unique pattern crossing over leads to this quality and the species
tetrad four
prophase one synapsis occurs; chromosomes are formed; crossing over
prophase mitosis nucleolus disappears it; spindle fibers form; chromosomes/centrioles move to opposite sides
female sex chromosomes XX
Crossing over during metaphase the mom and dad chromosomes get mixed up
interphase DNA replicates in the S phase of this phase
The stages of mitosis are? mitosis: prophase, metaphase, telephase, anaphase dinner phase: G, S, G two
telephase The nuclear envelope a nucleolus reform during this phase of mitosis
