Under normal cellular conditions, the primary structure of aProtein determines how it folds into its particular three-dimensional shape.
Physical and chemical conditions in the environment affect the structure of the molecule.
denaturation or denaturing is a phenomenon that occurs when adverse conditions alter the weak internal forces.
A change in structure can cause a change in function.
A basic idea of modern biology is that the shape of a molecule determines how it works.
Scientists don't know all the rules about how proteins fold.
There is a recent discovery that helps in folding other proteins.
There is a serious problem for a cell if a misfolded protein is present.
Learning more about folding is important.
Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and mad cow disease are all caused by prions in brain cells.
Three techniques are used to reveal a three-dimensional shape.
X-ray crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, and a new field are listed.
Bioinformatics uses computers and mathematical modeling to integrate huge volume of data generated from the analysis of an apical sequence to predict the three-dimensional structure of the resulting molecule.
The shape of more than 20,000 proteins has been determined.
The two nucleic acids are ribonucleic acid and deoxyribonucleic acid.
They store all hereditary information.
The information in the sequence of nucleotides in the DNA is used to make the amino acid sequence of the proteins.
The repeating units called nucleotides are found in nucleic acids.
There is a nitrogen base, adenine, a ribose, and a 5-carbon sugar in the nucleotide.
The carbon atoms are numbered.
There are two strands that run in opposite directions.
One strand runs from 3' to 5' while the other runs from 3' to 5'.
There are also nucleic acids discussed.
Functional groups are components of organic molecules that are involved in chemical reactions.
These groups are attached to the carbon skeleton and replace hydrogen atoms.
The functional group attached to the carbon skeleton is the difference between testosterone and estradiol.
Each functional group behaves in a consistent fashion.
Big ideas were supported by this chapter.
Life depends on the properties of water.
Function is related to the biological concept.
There are different functions for the same chemical formula.
The sequence of the amino acids in aProtein causes theProtein to fold in a particular way and 888-609- 888-609- 888-609- 888-609- 888-609-
A cell's activities are determined by the particular sequence of nucleotides.
Clothes washing detergent must be able to remove grease and oil stains from clothing while also dissolving and washing away in the rinse water.
A ribosome is formed when a particular sequence of amino acids are strung together.
There is a diagram of an experiment.
Newly formed polypeptide is released from the ribosome in both trials.
The newly formed polypeptide is in contact with a heat shock protein.
The newly formed polypeptide is not exposed to HSP in Experiment B.
The trials are the same except for the presence or absence of HSP.
The building blocks of polypeptides are depicted in this sketch.
Some atoms are removed when they are combined into a dipeptide.
One drop of water and ethyl alcohol is placed on a slide.
You can see the sketch.
In 1957 a pharmaceutical company in West Germany introduced a new drug to the market as a sleeping drug for pregnant women.
Thalidomide was very effective.
Millions of women were prescribed it by doctors in 46 countries.
Thousands of babies were born with missing or abnormal arms, hands, legs, or feet to mothers who took the drug while pregnant.
The product was removed from the market even though the pharmaceutical company proved that the drug contained pure thalidomide.
One version worked as expected, while the other caused birth defects.
A given element has the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons.
There are three isotopes of the carbon element.
Human blood has a normal pH of 7.4.
C 6 H 12 O 6 is the formula for glucose.
Specific heat is the amount of heat that must be absorbed or lost for 1 g of that substance to change its temperature.
Specific heat is a measure of how well a substance resists changing its temperature when it absorbs or releases heat.
The heat of water is very high.
The local climate is affected by a large body of water.
A molecule that is balanced and distributed equally is nonpolar.
A balanced arrangement of the 4Hs around the lone carbon makes the molecule non polar.
The bonds between oxygen atoms in O 2 are nonpolar, and the overall molecule is also balanced and nonpolar.
The CO 2 molecule has polar bonds between the carbon and oxygen atoms, but the arrangement of C and Os is balanced.
The molecule is balanced.
Water is a strongly polar molecule because oxygen attracts the hydrogen atoms and one side of the molecule is partially positive.
One end of the laundry detergent molecule is non-polar and will break the stain.
The polar end of the molecule will be in the rinse water.
The folding of the heat shock protein is what enabled it to function.
The person is acting like a chaperone.
In both cases, the ribosome produces something.
There is nothing wrong with the ribosome.
In this experiment, HSP does not come in contact with the DNA.
No heat is applied in this experiment.
One strand runs from 3' to 5' and the other runs from 3' to 3'.
The bases are identical in the two strands, so eliminate choice B. U is only found in RNA, not DNA, so eliminate choice C. The two strands are 5' to 3' long.
The molecule of water is attracted to each other by hydrogen bonding and also because the water molecule is polar and the negative side of one water molecule attracts the positive side of another water molecule.
Water has strong cohesion tension because of these strong intermolecular attractions.
Molecules of alcohol have different attractions for each other.
Choice D is wrong because attraction is not within them.
The terrible outcome did not take a long time to surface.
There were no contaminants in the drug according to the stem of the question.
Out of millions of babies, a small percentage were born with birth defects.
C is probably not reasonable.
Some of the carbon's radioactive elements are C-14).
There is only one number of neutrons.
The fact that it doesn't change is an example of being in balance.
A pH of 7.4 is either basic or alkaline.
That means it has more OH than H.
Choice B is not correct because it is an empirical formula.
The empirical formula for any monosaccharide is choice B.
It is produced and used up all the time.
Swelling and fatiguing acids make up lipids.
Glucagon is a hormone that breaks down glycogen into sugar.
Glycine is the most basic of acids.
