Example text

The oxygen atom is slightly negatively charged (designated d−), and the hydrogen atoms are correspondingly slightly positively charged (d+). This polarity has important chemical ramifications. The partially positively charged hydrogen atoms of one molecule of water can interact with the partially negatively charged oxygen atoms of another molecule of water. 1). As we will see, hydrogen bonds are not unique to water molecules and in fact are common weak bonds in biomolecules. 4 neighboring molecules.

Define replication, transcription, and translation in regard to the central dogma. ✓ 2 (f) Secretory granules ___________ 6. Hurry it up. What is an enzyme? ✓ 1 7. Complex and less so. Differentiate between eukaryotic cells and prokaryotic cells. ✓ 3 8. A diminutive organ? What is an organelle? ✓ 3 9. Double bounded. Which organelles are surrounded by two membranes? 10. Perforated. How does the nuclear membrane differ from other membranes? 11. An exit strategy. Trace the pathway of the formation of a secretory protein from its gene to its exocytosis from the cell.

The answer to the second question is that weak bonds allow transient interactions. A substrate can bind to an enzyme, and the product can leave the enzyme. A hormone can bind to its receptor and then dissociate from the receptor after the signal has been received. Weak bonds allow for dynamic interactions and permit 17 18 2 Water, Weak Bonds, and the Generation of Order Out of Chaos energy and information to move about the cell and organism. Transient chemical interactions form the basis of biochemistry and life itself.
