not all hormones are, testosterone is a hormone but not a protein
(Original post by James A)
Not all are.

Adrenaline isn't a protein. It's a carbohydrate.

I'm a bit confused with gel electrophoreisis, I understand the further the fragments move, the smaller they but i'm a but confused about the terminator base thing, is is related to this or completely different?

I suspect it will be on ATP, however it is hard to know as there has been sop few papers /: But i've found the best way to revise for the essay at this stage is to learn the synoptic cycles from unit 4 etc as they tend to be applicable to most questions in some way or another

Can anyone tell me how the oestrous cycle could be an example of both negative and positive feedback?

Complementary T cells bind to antigen expressed on phagocyte
Stimulates the division of T cells by mitosis. Develope to form memory cells and cytotoxic T cells that produce a toxin that make holes in membrane of pathogen.
Also divide into T helper cells.

B cells then take up antigen of pathogen and express it on surface
T helper cell binds to it activating the B cells which now divide by mitosis to form memory B cells and plasma B cells.
Plasma cells produce Y shaped antibodies and complementary to antigen and form antigen antibody complexes.

I struggle with gel electrophoresis too, what i find difficult is understanding the difference in restriction mapping and DNA sequencing. I assume the terminator base is the base that stops the DNA sequence, similarly to a stop code?

negative feedback: when small amounts of oestrogen is beiung released by fsh, the uterus lining begins to build up and so inhibits the release of fsh (and lh) from glands

positive feedback: oestrogen stimulates gland to release LH and FSH which further stimulates the ovaries to release oestrogen

negative feedback: LH stimulates the corpus luteum to develop which produces progesterone. progesterone inhibits further release of LH

FSH stimulates the creation of new follicle, new follicle secretes oestrogen, low levels of oestrogen then inhibit FSH and LH (negative feedback)

As the follicle grows more, by around day 10 higher levels of oestrogen is produced, this causes the inhibition to be reversed, so now oestrogen stimulates FSH and LH (positive feedback)

Later on, after ovulation the corpus leutum (formed by LH) secretes progesterone, progesterone inhibits FSH and LH (negative feedback)

If it was that it would probably be variation in living organisms. Or maybe consequences of mutation??
