  2. What do chitin and cellulose have in common?
    both are primarily composed of glucose
  3. In the electrophoresis lab, what was the independent variable?
    the pH of the buffer used to prepare the gels
  4. What is the isoelectric point of a protein?
    the pH at which the protein will not migrate in an electrical field.
  5. If the isoelectric point of a protein is higher than the pH, what happens?

    Stained some cell parts more intensely than others, creating contrast between the parts.
  9. In the permeability lab, what was the dependent variable?
  10. In the permeability lab, what were the independent variables?
    Size, charge, and lipid solubility
  11. In the electrophoresis lab, what was the dependent variable?
    the distance each protein migrated in an electric field
  12. What was the measure of permeability used in lab?
    the time required to reach one-half maximum transparency after injecting the solution
  13. What is magnification?
    making things appear larger
  14. What is resolution?
    being able to distinguish 2 objects
  15. What is contrast?
    different parts of an object absorb or transmit amounts of light
  16. What do you do to calibrate a spec 20?
    put a blank slide in turn the left knob so it reads 0. then turn the right knob so it reads 100.
  17. What distinguishes prokaryotes from eukaryotes?
    they don't have a nuclues, cytoskeleton, or membrane-bound organelles.
  18. What are the different shapes for the different Bacteria?
    • Spherical- cocci
    • Rod-shaped-Bacilli
    • Spiral-Spirilla
  19. What is the different between autotrophic and heterotrophic?
