Compounds that always contain hydrogen and carbon, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids are organic compounds found in living things. Organic compound
A type of protein that regulates nearly all chemical reactions in cells; a type of proteinthat speeds up chemical reactions in the body without being changed or used up itself. enzyme
Compound, such as H^2 O, that is made from elements other than carbon and whose atoms usually can be arranged in only one structure. inorganic compound
Movement of substances through a cell membrane without the use of cellular energy; includes diffusion, osmosis, and facilitated diffusion. Passive Transport
A type of passive transport in cells in which molecules move from areas where there are fewer of them. Diffusion
Occurs when molecules of one substance are spread evenly throughout another substance. equilibrium
A type of passive transport that occurs when water diffuses through a cell membrane Osmosis
Energy requiring process in which transport proteins bind with particles and move them through a cell membrane. active transport
Process by which a cell takes in a substance by surrounding it with the cell membrane. endocytosis

Process by which plants and many other producers use light energy to produce simple sugar from carbon dioxide and water and give off oxygen. photosynthesis
Cell organelle that breaks down lipids and carbohydrates and releases energy. Mitochondrion
Process by which producers and consumers release stored energy from food molicules. Respiration
