Greenhouse gases include?
ozone, methane, CO2, chlorofluorohydrocarbons
Symbiosis between blue-green alga with a fungus. The alga supplies the food while the fungus protects the alga and absorbs water and minerals for both.

Disulfide bonds are seen where?
In many proteins (antibodies, hair, insulin). They restrict the way the protein can fold. It's a covalent bond.
Antibodies (immunoglobulins) consist of?
two heavy chains linked to two light chains by disulfide bonds.
Which part of flower will catch pollen?
Stigma: the sticky part
Fats yield more than ___ the energy than protein or carbohydrate.

electron transport chain
Electron transport chain pumps protons out of the mitochondrial matrix, creating a?
treeless frozen plain with permafrost.
Grassland with low rainfall, hooved, plant-eating mammals such as giraffes
group of organisms such as wasps, bees, and hornets all possessing yellow warning colors.
deceptive mimicry: family of flies that resemble the yellow bees and hornets but do not sting at all.
chemical in plants which imparts an unsatisfactory taste to leaves and twigs, discourage herbivores
Unpalatable prey is often highly ___ to warn predators
Smoking will damage cilia of respiratory cells, globet cell's mucous production will ?
increase. Causing unproductive cough because the lungs have decreased means of moving the mucous out.
ciliated pseudostratified columnar epithelial cells are found?
in trachea and upper respiratory sys
Pseudostratified columnar epithelia cells may contain?
Goblet cells that secrete mucous.
Smoking does what to the cilia of respiratory cells, allow what to remain in lungs?
Human oocytes can be most successfully fertilized how?
micro-injection: injecting sperm cell into an egg
bind RNA polymerase and determine where transcription begins. In prokaryotes, it's the Pribnow box. In Eukaryotes, its the TATA box.
consists of promoter gene, operator gene and structural genes: to provide regulation of transcription.
Rh+ fetus, Rh- mother
bead-like structures composed of histones wrapped by DNA
Small DNA binding proteins that allow DNA coiling
the point where two homologous non-sister chromatids exchange genetic material during chromosomal crossover during meiosis
pairing of homologous chromosomes during prophase 1 of meiosis. This is the key distinguishing feature between meiosis and mitosis.
Allopatric speciation vs. sympatric speciation?
Allopatric: species arise from geographical isolation.
Sympatric: species arise after ecological, genetic, or behavioral barries arise within the same geographical boundary of a single population.
Founder effects and bottlenecks occur when a population is?
rebuilt or originated from very few individuals. This illustrates a genetic drift. Amount of genetic variation is very limited.
disaster nearly wipes out a large population.
regulation of an enzyme or other protein by binding an effector molecule at the protein's allosteric site (that is, a site other than the protein's active site
When the first O2 binds to Hgb, salt bridges are broken and disturbed upon binding, causing conformational change, additional O2 binds more easily. This effect is called?
have more than one binding sites.
