7 Characteristics of Life M: Movement R: Respiration S: Sensitive to the environment G: Growth R: Reproduction E: Excretion N: Nutrition A LIVING OBJECT
Is the object below a living or nonliving object?
What are the 2 main differences between plant and animal cells?
Plant cells have a cell wall and chloroplast
Which cell organelle is the outer boundary of the cell?
http://apbio82007.blogspot.com/2007/11/cell-membrane.html The cell membrane
What organelle produces energy for the cell? It is also known as the powerhouse of the cell.
The ribosomes in the cell are responsible for making ____________.
WHAT TYPE OF SYMBIOTIC RELATIONSHIP IS DESCRIBED BELOW: BARNACLES ATTACH TO WHALES FOR STABILITY AND ALSO GET FOOD FROM THE FILTERED WATER AROUND THE WHALE
Commensalism because the barnacles gain but the whales didn’t benefit nor were they harmed. Image from http://www.alaska-in-pictures.com/humpback-whale-skin-barnacles-6432-pictures.htm
Look at the food chain above. Label the producer, the primary consumer and the secondary consumer.
** Grass – producer ** Rabbit – primary consumer; eats the grass ** Fox – secondary consumer; eats the rabbit
Look at this food chain. What would happen if a drought hit the area and the grass died?
If the grass were to die, the rabbits would not have food so they would eventually die. Then the foxes would not have food when the rabbits die so they would die as well.
What are the two types of passive transport?
Passive transport is when particles move from areas of high concentration to areas of low concentration. It requires no energy. Two examples of passive transport is diffusion and osmosis.
When a dog pants, it is trying to maintain a level body temperature. This is an example of what process?
HOMEOSTASIS The balance that all living things have to maintain, is called HOMEOSTASIS.
Particles are always moving around. They move from areas that more crowded to areas that are less crowded. This process is called ______________________.
DIFFUSION crowdedless crowded
Diffusion occurs in cells too. What organelle allows diffusion to take place by allowing things to enter and exit the cell?
Osmosis is the diffusion of _______
Like Passive Transport (diffusion/osmosis), Active Transport moves particles in and out of the cell, but this time it moves them from less crowded to MORE crowded. When moving particles against the crowd, it requires ____________.
In what type of organisms does photosynthesis occur?
In photosynthesis, plants take in water, sunlight and carbon dioxide to make what?
carbon dioxide + water + energy glucose + oxygen light energy 6CO2 6H2O 6O2 + + + C6H12O6 Glucose (Sugar) and Oxygen
In what cellular organelle does photosynthesis take place?
What process breaks down glucose and oxygen to produce water, carbon dioxide and ENERGY (ATP)?
In what cellular organelle does cellular respiration take place?
Mitochondria – the powerhouse of the cell
In order for your computer to work, it needs electricity. Electricity is a type of energy. Cellular respiration produces energy called ATP. Why is this important?
Cells need energy, ATP, to carry out all chemical functions to make our bodies run properly.
carbon dioxide + water + energy glucose + oxygen light energy 6CO2 6H2O 6O2 + + + C6H12O6 The equation below is for what process?
This cellular organelle is often called the “brain” of the cell. It contains the DNA.
A DNA molecule is in the shape of double helix. It looks like a _______ ______________.
What are the 4 main organic compounds?
Lipids (fats), carbohydrates, proteins, and nucleic acids
________________ are substances that help speed up a chemical reaction without being used.
A DNA molecule is made up of nucleotides. The three parts of a nucleotide is : Nitrogen base Phosphate group _______________
The third part of the nucleotide in a DNA molecule is the DEOXYRIBOSE (which is a sugar)
In a DNA molecule there are can be 4 different nitrogen bases. Name those bases and which bases pair together.
The 4 Nitrogen bases are Adenine (A), Thymine (T), Guanine (G), and Cytosine (C) A pairs with T G pairs with C
A DNA molecule makes a copy of itself through a process called DNA Replication. There are three steps to replication. The DNA molecule untwists & unzips _________________________________ The molecules re-twist and there is now a new DNA molecule

Take this DNA sequence and go through DNA replication and form a new DNA section. AACGCGTACGTATC
Original DNA: AATCGCGTACGTATC New DNA sequence: TTAGCGCATGCATAG
Now take that same original DNA sequence and form a RNA sequence: AATCGCGTACGTATC
Original DNA sequence: AATCGCGTACGTATC RNA sequence: UUAGCGCAUGCAUAG
Now take that original DNA sequence and form the protein sequence AATCGCGTACGTATC
Original DNA sequence: AATCGCGTACGTATC RNA sequence: UUAGCGCAUGCAUAG By looking at the amino acid chart this RNA sequence would give us this protein sequence: Leucine – Alanine – Histidine – Alanine - Stop
For BROWN eyes, you can have a genotype of BB or Bb Of those two genotypes, which one is a homozygous genotype?
Homozygous means the two alleles are the same. So BB is a homozygous genotype
Tom has blue eyes and his wife, Janelle, has blue eyes. What are the genotypes of both Tom and Janelle? Perform a Punnett Square, to determine the probability that their children will have brown eyes.
The Blue allele for eyes is a RECESSIVE trait. Therefore, in order to have BLUE eyes, both alleles must be recessive. So the genotype for both Tom and Janelle is bb Tom and Janelle’s children have a ZERO chance of having Brown eyes b b b b
Why does our DNA need to replicate?
So that every cell will have the same DNA
Adenine (A) only combines with __________ Cytosine (C) only combines with __________ In a DNA molecule, the nitrogen bases make up the “steps of the ladder.” The bases can only combine in certain ways.
Adenine (A) only combines with Thymine (T) Cytosine (C) only combines with Guanine (G)
Who is the Father of Genetics?
Genes are passed from the parents to their children. The child gets _______ of their genes from their mom and _______ of their genes from their dad.
Tall (T) is a dominant trait in Pea Plants. Short (t)is a recessive trait. If you cross a heterozygous Tall plant with a short plant, what is the probability that you will get a short plant?
A Tall heterozgyous plant would have a genotype of Tt A short plant would have a genotype of tt t T t t There is a 50% chance that you will get a short plant
