All of the following are considered to be part of the endomembrane system except
you would be stuck in the golgi
If you were a protein destined to reach the plasma membrane and you were making your way through the golgi when suddenly golgi trafficking was blocked at the trans face , what would happen to you?
The lipid layer that forms the foundation of cell membranes is primarily composed of molecules called
While water continually orients phospholipides into a lipid bilayer, it does not fix the lipids permanently into position. Thus, the bilayer is considered to be _____ in natu
Both active transport and facilitated transport utilize specific _____ proteins embedded in the cell membrane
are hydrophobic
Membrane proteins are not very soluble in water, because they prossess long stretches of non-polar amino acids that
If a cell has the same concentration of dissolved molecules as of its outside environment, the cells condition is called as being
What protein class is not found as a membrane protein?
The actual transport of protons by the proton pump is mediated by a transmembrane protein which undergoes a change in its _____
The process often thought of a "cell eating" is
3 sodium ions leave and 2 potassium ions enter
In a single sodium-potassium pump cycle, ATP is used up withe the result that
the cell membrane was composed of a phospholipid bilayer with globular proteins actually inserted into the bilayer
The fluid mosaic model proposed by singer and nicolson in 1972 included that
the carrier molecule must be specific to the molecule that is transported. the direction of movement is always with the concentration gradient, never against the gradient
Facilitated diffusion is an important method for cells in obtaining necessary molecules and removing other ones. Requirements for facilitated diffusion include what?
water moves into the cell
As a scientist you perform an experiment in which you create an artificial cell with a selectively permeable membrane through which only water can pass. You put a 5M solution of glucose into the cell and you place that into a beaker of water. What observations do you expect to see?
freeze-fracture allows a cell to be cleaved in between the lipid bilayer, splitting the plasma membrane into two layers
How can freeze-fracture be used to determine the orientation of a protein in a membrane?
the capacity to do work
Energy is defined as
Free energy is the amount of energy available for the cell to carry out its many chemical processes. It is the difference between the internal energy or enthalpy and ____ or disorder
activation energy
The process fo influencing the chemical bonds in a way that lowers the ___ needed to speed up a chimical reaction is call catalysis
Certain key molecules can regulate biochemical pathways by controlling the rates fo enzymatic reactions by binding at ____ sites

Under standard conditions, ATP can release fro every molecule converted to ADP
feedback inhibition
The regulation of simple biochemical pathways often involves the end-product binding to the allosteric site of the first enzyme in the sequence. This mode of regulation is called
energy cannot be created or destroyed, just changed from one form to another
The first law of thermodynamics simply states that
