reaction at the beginning of the cycle?

Three of each

That it synthesizes large quantities of lipids

The Electron Transport Chain takes place in

The stroma of the chloroplasts

In, or on, which organelle might proteins be translated?

Endoplasmic reticulum

Which of the following organelles have their own DNA?

Chloroplasts and mitochondria

Glycolysis takes place where in a cell?


What part of the cytoskeleton is a major component of a mitotic or meiotic
contractile ring?


If a cell has an equal solute concentration on both sides of the membrane, the
tonicity of the cell is considered


What is the major product of Photosystem I?


The pH in the mitochondrial matrix is lower than the pH in the intermembrane
space. True or False?


Rank the cytoskeletal components in order from smallest to largest in diameter.

Microfilaments to Intermediate to filaments Microtubules

In autumn, the leaves of many types of trees change colors. This is because the
chlorophyll is degraded, and _____.

the carotenoids and other pigments are still present in the leaves

Aerobic respiration, or cellular respiration, is a process that takes glucose and O2
and completely reduces them down into _________.

lactic acid

What is one reason an anaerobic organism is considered anaerobic?

It must use a molecule like NO3 as a final electron acceptor in the electron transport chain

How many molecules of glyceraldehyde 3-P (G3P) are transported out of the
chloroplast for sugar metabolism?


The Endosymbiotic Theory helps explain the existence of lysosomes and
peroxisomes. True or False

C) 15 % salt solution
D) 10 % salt solution
E) Both C and D are equally correct

B) 2 % salt solution

Following glycolysis and the TCA cycle, but before the electron transport chain,
glucose has been broken down to CO2 with some net gain of ATP. Most of the
energy from the original glucose molecule at that point in the process, however, is
in the form of _____.


How many membranes does a mitochondrion possess?


On the inner membrane of the mitochondria, ATP production is coupled to
the events in the electron-transport chain. What is accomplished in the
final electron transfer event in the electron-transport chain?

Oxygen, O2, is reduced and water, H2O, is produced

What molecule would be associated with movement from the + to - end of a


Ultimately, where could a majority of all living organisms get their energy?

The sun
