So far i've done...

- How structure of cells relate to their function
- Control of/within living organisms
- Negative feedback and its importance
- Different ways organisms use ATP
- Inorganic ions
- Movement of substances within organisms
- Enzymes and their importance in plants and animals

They cover a wide range so
daym lets just hope garnzzzzzz is right and atp comes up!

Also I was chatting with friends last night and one of them suggested reading the essay plans before you start the exam paper, then if you come up with any ideas relevant to the essay while you are going through your paper, you can add them into your plan

What do people think to this method?

Is the control essay just referring to homeostasis (positive and negative feedbacks)?
Pretty much, along with tropisms, muscle contractions, and biological/chemical control of populations

I've done over 20 plans hahaha! But that's only because I'm so **** at essays. Don't go over essays that have came up before; its pointless. Do new ones eg how living organisms use ATP, importance of membranes in biological processes, ways in which organisms use inorganic ions etc. give yourself a paragraph title in your plan then bullet point points for it. Then move onto the next paragraph.
i might just risk it and stick with my atp essay plan hahaha

My ESSAY hunch
* Biological importance of water
* Homoeostasis
* ATP (production and uses)
* Variation & importance
* Ions
* Interdependence of organisms
* Carbohydrates
DISCLAIMER : I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE IF NONE OF THESE ESSAYS COME UP!
What do you mean by 'interdependence of organisms'? what would this essay include?

Please could you summarise the points that you put for the Ions essay please?

I think that's a good method, going through the questions something might pop up in your mind for you to mention which would lead to another topic and so on.. definitely will give it a go

Plan for a lipid essay

Triglycerides synthesis from fatty acids (carboxylic) and glycerol. Beta oxidation to acetylcoa in anaerobic e.g. Germination in seeds. Stored in adipose cells - mobilised by glucagon. Unsaturated or saturated

Membranes phospholipids, heads or tails fluid mosaic allows regulation of entry and exit. Cholesterol as stability regulator and influence on atheroma formation

Steroids transcription factor - oestrogen

Sphingolipids - myelin sheath, salutary propagation

Waxes - hydrophobic, exoskeletons, cuticles, sebum

Buoyancy - swim bladders in teleosts etc. Omega 3 fatty concept of essential fatty acids


Anything missing?

If you don't like the essay questions, then it will put you off throughout the rest of the exam duration. Besides, I'll be fully focussed on trying to score as many marks from the questions and the essay plan will be the last thing I'll have in mind.

Hey Mocking, I just wondered, what have you done for structure of cells, currently doing a plan on that

I've got:
- Flagella in Sperm + Cholera
- Lots of mitochondria in Sperm and Slow twitch fibres.
- Phagocytes and T-cells have specific antigen presenting sites on them.
- Neurones are myelinated, have dendrites/axons too.
- Microvilli in epithelial cells for absorption
- Prokaryotic cells are able to conjugate (antibiotic resistance)
- (Not sure about this one) Dead cells line the xylem?

Could you give some examples of this?
All I can think of is agricultural control of pests which I don't think that relevant...

can sum1 please explain translation to me. thanks
Translation is where an mRNA strand that codes for a polypeptide chain (protein) is translated. The mRNA strand moves into a ribosome and as it moves along, tRNA molecules with an anticodon complimentary to the codon on the mRNA bind togeather. tRNA have an amino acid attached to the top of them, and when two tRNA molecules are next to each other in the ribosome their amino acids are joined by a peptide bond. The first tRNA leaves the ribosome and let's go of the mRNA's codon and leaves its amino acid behind. Another tRNA then binds to the mRNA and enters the ribosome and it's amino acid is joined to the first two acids, and so on. When the mRNA reaches a stop codon, translation is complete and the polypeptide chain of amino acids (the protein) moves away

Mixture of these in four test tubes: (PCR used to amplify DNA strand to be sequenced)

- Single-stranded DNA template (to be sequenced)

- DNA Polymerase (Joins ADJACENT nucleotides)

- Lots of DNA Primer (short pieces of DNA)

- Free normal nucleotides (ATCG)

- Fluorescently-labelled terminator nucleotides (A*T*C*G*)

The DNA primers attach the start of the DNA strand to be sequenced to allow more nucleotides to be added, and then normal nucleotides bond to their complementary bases on the DNA strand, until a terminator nucleotides bond to their complementary nucleotide (A* to T, C* to G, T* to A, G* to C). This happens at every possible point producing all the possible different fragments.

Then, gel electrophoresis is used and the smaller (fewer bases) travel further after a current is applied. So, once this has been done for all of the test tubes (1 type of terminator nucleotide in each), you can read upwards from the DNA fragments at the bottom of the gel to find the COMPLEMENTARY SEQUENCE TO THE DNA STRAND BEING SEQUENCED. If you read TTCAGGTA, then the DNA sequence that you're trying to determine is AAGTCCAT

Wait a min i dont get it so whats the point in DNA sequencing and do all the test tubes contain the exact same orig single DNA strand and primer if so they would all be terminated at same time wouldnt they :s soz struggled with this more then anything else would really help if someone could explain !

This question has been asked for the 100th time [srs] but why does the mark scheme say that the tumor suppressor gene is altered? Why not the proto-oncogene?

http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...W-QP-JUN10.PDF

6c)ii
because even if you get oncagens the tumour supressor gene still work slowing down cell division preventing the cancer.
Basically bro you can only get cancer if your tumor supressor genes mutate.

True, but also if you don't like the essay questions you know you've gotta do your very best to grab every little mark you can, plus it would give you more thinking time which might make them feel less intimidating!
