  12. A reaction which builds from simple to complex may be
    • Anabolic
    • Endergonic

    • pH
    • Temperature
    • Cofactors
    • Inhibitors
  15. Enzymes lower the activation energy of a reaction, and so speed up the reaction. True or false?
  16. In an electrogenic pump, ATP is used to pump __ against its concentration gradient to the outside of the cell; in turn this builds potential energy known as the "proton motive force" that is used to transport another molecule ___ its concentration gradient
