  7. when the coenzymes NAD and FAD accept hydrogen they become
  8. Cellular respiration can be summarized in which 4 steps?
    Glycolysis, Formation of Acetyl CoA, Kreb's cycle, and the Electron Transport System
  9. Glycolyis is
    a series of about 10 systematically catalyzed reactions occuring in the cytoplasm of the cell. Glucose is converted in two molecules of pyruvate. and ATP and NADH are produced.
  10. Glucose is?
    a six carbon sugar
  11. Pyruvate is?
    a three carbon compound
  12. Formation of acetyl CoA happens when?
    pyruvate is transported into the mitochondrion and converted to a two carbon acetyl group. this acetyl group combines coenzyme A to form Acetyl CoA. Carbon dioxide and NADH are produced. This occurs twice for each glucose that is degraded
  13. Krebs Cycles is known alternatively as
    citric acid cycle and tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle
  14. Kreb's cycle
    the remaining carbons of the acetyl group of acetyl-CoA are degraded into carbon dioxide and several molecules of NADH, FADH 2 and ATP are produced. this occurs twice for every glucose that is degraded
  15. Electron transport system (ETS)
    Consists of a series of carrier proteins in a chain that transports hydrogen protons and electrons. these hydrogens come from the NADH and FADH 2 that was produced in the Kreb's cycle. The electrons travel along the chain to the final electron acceptor which is oxygen. The protons form a gradient between the inner and outer membranes of the mitochondrion and participate in ATP formation during Chemiosmosis. Eventually the protons rejoin the electrons and oxygen at the end of the ETS to form water.

  63. double stranded chromosome
  64. - no filamentous or rod-shaped chromosomes present. the chromosomes are uncoiled and very diffuse. - the nucleus may appear to contain small specks of chromsome material - a nucleus is obvious in each cell - one or more nucleoli are present in each nucleus as large darkly stained bodies
    characteristics to observe in a cell undergoing interphase
  65. - the chromosomes coil tightly and appear as filaments or rods

  80. the paird homologs next move to the center of the nucleus to a place called the metaphase plate. there one of the homologs will lie on one side of the plate while the other lies on the opposite side of the plate. the homologs will be held in place by kinetochore microtubules which are only attached to one side of the cetromere facing athe poles.
    Metaphase I
  81. the kinetochore microtubules attached to the centromere of each homolog will begin to shorten and pull the homologs toward the poles. this causes half of the homologs to go to one pole and the other half to the opposite pole
    anaphase I
  82. Cytokinesis, the division of the cytoplasm then takes place and 2 daughter cells, each with half of the original number of chromosomes are produced
    telophase I
  83. the second interphase does not involve any replication of chromosomes. it is only a transitory phase which may be missing some organisms
    Interphase II
  84. The second meiotic division has 4 phases just like meiosis I
    Meiosis II
  85. the chromosomes and spindle apparatus reappear as the nuclear envelope disappears. the chromosomes appear singly as dyads and there is no synapsis or crossing over observed at this time.
    Prophase II
  86. the chromosomes line up along the metaphase plate, and each chromosome is held there by the kinetochore microtubules that extend from each side of the centromere toward the opposite poles
    Metaphase II
  87. The kinetochore microtubules shorten and each sister chromatid is withdrawn toward the centromere at the poles. thsi process reduces the dyads and monads
    Anaphase II
  88. Cytokinesis is visible. in animal cells furrowing takes place, but in plant cells, new cell walls are formed between the four cells. The chromosomes are also no longer visible during this stage of the cycle and new nuclear envelopes are formed
