Maintains basic life functions carried out by all living organisms.
Failure To maintain Homeostasis
Leads to disease and death.
Carried out by all plants. Process of absorbing light energy from the sun and converting it into the bonds of sugar molecules.
Formula For Photosynthesis
C6 H12 O6
C6 H12 O6 + 6O2
Diffusion of water in and out of the cell.
Need Carbon and Hydrogen
Determined by Shape.
The Four Jobs Of Proteins
1. Make Enzymes.
2. Make Receptor Molecules On The Cell Membrane.
3. Make Antibodies.
4. Make Hormones.
What Are Enzymes
Catalysts that affect the rates of chemical reactions.
1. All living things are made of cells.
2. Cells are the basic unit of structure and function.
3. All cells come from preexisting cells.
Fungi, Bacteria, Protists, Animals, and Plants.
Classified by an organisms Genus and Species.
Ex] Homo Sapiens
Occurs when only some genes are turned on.
Ex] Virus's, bacteria, and parasites.
Blood Type O
Blood Type AB
Filter waste from blood and reabsorb nutrients.
Filters toxins and dead red blood cells from the blood.
Makes insulin and glucagon, which control blood sugar levels.
Make adrenaline when the body's under stress.
How Many Chromosomes do humans have in their bodies?
(23 from each parent).
Changes that occur within DNA.
Genetic Engineering/Gene Splicing
Scientists use bacteria to do this. They use bacteria because it has no nucleus protecting its DNA.
Used to diagnose and treat genetic diseases.
Theory that states that change occurs slowly.
Theory that says evolution happens in quick spurts.
