growth & development
Which of the following is the correct order of levels of organization from small to large?
To measure the activity of the human brain during certain thought processes, a short-lived radioactive sugar is injected in the carotid artery and is utilized by those cells that are most active. This shows up on a PET scan and demonstrates the detection of:
You can hold a water droplet between two fingertips held slightly apart. This is an example of what property of water?
cohesion of water molecules from hydrogen bonding
The water strider is an insect that skates across the water without sinking. The tips of its feet should be coated with molecules that are:

A genetic mutation can cause a change in the sequence of the 20 amino acids used to build proteins. Such a
change is a change to the protein's structure:
primary structure but will alter 2nd and 3rd
The _____ structure of a protein consists of the sequence of the amino acids joined by polypeptide bonds.
The proposed cause of mad-cow disease, scrapie in sheep, and kuru in cannibals from the New Guinea highlands is a change in a brain protein. Disease victims appear to have a normal protein that should contain primarily coiled alpha helix changed conformation into a protein mainly made of pleated beta sheets. This is a change in the:

the structure of DNA.
Regarding the duplication of DNA, we now know that each double helix:
splits down the middle into two single helices, and each one then acts as a template to build its complement.
