  2. Isozymes
    • play an important role in the dx of certain medical conditions
    • are enzymes that catalyze the same reaction
    • have complex structures with multiple protein chains
  3. a competitive inhibitor binds to...
    the active site
  4. an allosteric modulator binds to
    a region of the enzyme other than the active site
  5. changes in the pH or temperature of an enzyme, changes the activity of the enzyme due to...
    change of the three-dimensional structure of the enzyme
  6. the active sites of enzymes are
    regions of an enzyme that are involved in bringing reactants together
  7. all chemical reactions that take place within an organism
  8. reactions that require energy and result in the synthesis of large biomolecules
  9. grouping related enzymes into specific organelles
  10. requires O2 and produces more ATP per glucose than anaerobic pathways

    energy is neither created nor destroyed
  18. It takes energy tokeep order
    Law of entropy
  19. what is the biproduct of energy
  20. We don't create energy, we...
    convert energy
  21. The ultimate source of energy for life on the planet comes from
    the sun
  22. The capacity to do work
  23. Three types of cellular work
    • chemical work

  24. this type of cellular work promotes growth, repair, and replacement of cells:

    synthesizes proteins, lipids, nucleic acids
    breaks down carbohydrates
    chemical cork
  25. this type of cellular work moves molecules and ions across membranes via concentration gradients
    transport work
  26. this type of cellular work is related to movement (example: cilia)
    mechanical work
  27. energy of motion
    kinetic energy
  28. stored energy
    potential energy
  29. energy released (exit energy)

  33. Disorder in the universe is always increasing
    Law of entropy
    Second law of thermodynamics
  34. Where does ATP synthesis take place?
  35. enzymes are proteins made up of
    chains of amino acids in the order specified by our genes
  36. vitamins and minerals act with other enzymes and are called
    cofactors or coenzymes
  37. when enzymes transfer electrons from one molecule to another
    oxidation reaction
  38. addition or removal of H2O

    • catabolic metabolism
    • A+B<------A-B
  41. pathways that use energy to build macromolecules
    • anabolic metabolism
    • A+B------>A-B
  42. movement downhill until equilibrium is reached
    law of mass action
