Adenosine triphospate (ATP)
Provides a form of chemical energy that all body cells can use. WIthout this, molecules cannot be made or broken down, cells cannot maintain boundaries, and all life processes stop.
Occurs when a molecule is broken down into smaller molecules, atoms or ions. AB->A+B
nucleic acid found in all living cells:carries the organism's hereditary information.
Unique substances that cannot be broken down into simpler substances by ordinary chemical methods.
functional proteins that act as biological catalysts. A catalyst is a substance that increases the rate of a chemical reaction without becoming part of the product or being changed itself.
Extremely weak bonds formed when a hydrogen atom binds to one electron hungry nitrogen or oxygen atom is attracted to another electron hungry atom and a bridge if formed between them.
A large group of organic compounds - contain carbon, hydrogen and oxygen with more carbon and hydrogens than oxygens.
Heavier isotopes of certain atoms are unstable and tend to decompose to become more stable.
Atoms with the same number of protons and electrons but vary in the number of neutrons they contain.
the nucleic acids that contains ribose acts in protein synthesis. Present in all living cells. Principal role is to aid as a messenger carrying instructions from DNA for controlling the synthesis of proteins.
Occur when two or more atoms or molecules combine to form a larger, more complex molecule. A+B->AB
