Bio STAAR Cat#1

Reporting Category #1

Biomolecules organic molecules which combine to form living organisms; includes carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids
carbohydrates biomolecule of carbon,hydrogen and oxygen combined in 1:2:1 ratio; include simple and complex sugars; molecules which store energy, add structure, & provide sugars for DNA and RNA; monomer - monosaccharaide ; polymer - polysaccharide
lipids biomolecule composed of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen; includes fats,oils, waxes and sterols; important component of cell membranes
proteins biomolecule composed of nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen; made up of monomer amino acids; enzyme is an example
nucleic acids biomolecule made up of nucleotides; nucleotides contain a phosphate sugar and nitrogen base; examples include DNA and RNA
monomer single unit ; small piece of biomolecule
polymer multi piece unit; made up of smaller monomers
organic molecule An organic compound always contains carbon; Examples : carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids.
prokaryotic an organism whose cell generally lacks a true nucleus Examples: bacterial cells
eukaryotic organism possessing a membrane-bound nucleus and organelles; animals, plants, fungi, and protists
homeostasis The tendency of an organism or a cell to regulate its internal conditions, usually by a system of feedback controls or feedback loops, so as to stabilize health and functioning, regardless of the outside changing conditions ex: sweating when hot
deoxyribonucleic acid double-stranded nucleic acid found in the nucleus which provides instruction for making proteins; provides hereditary information; DNA
ribonucleic acid single stranded nucleic acid made during transcription to provide template for making proteins at ribosome during translation; RNA
cell cycle components include interphase, mitosis and cytokinesis
interphase part of the cell cycle; resting stage of cell and preparation for mitosis; includes G 1 (duplication of organelles) S phase(replication of DNA) and G 2 (checking of replication)
mitosis part of cell cycle; division of the nucleus; includes prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase
cytokinesis part of cell cycle; division of cytoplasm and organelles except nucleus
cell differentiation specialization of cells for a particular function
cancer uncontrolled cell division; creates tumors and interferes with normal cell function

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
