    I hate this exam

    When a question is given judging on the markscheme, you literally write everything you know about the topic even if it wasn't the Question

    So stupid,

    It joins the sugar-phosphate backbone

    Hopefully not!
    It seems like a question that will trip up many and they'll start to assume what he observed and concluded...
    So, in 'conclusion'!

    I think it is somewhat needed!

    When two monosaccharides join together to form a disaccharide, for example a 2 glucose monosaccharides joining together, can you also have like glucose and fructose joining together or does it have to be the same type of monosaccharide joining together? If you get what I mean?

    Conclusions:
    - There is a struggle to survive
    - Better adapted organisms survive and pass on these characteristics
    - Overtime these changes may cause a new species to evolve

    is this correct?

    As correct as his theory gets!
    LOL.

    Yes, totally correct.
    I have to connect with Biodiversity a little more than the other elements; being a Chemist just makes everything else make total sense, but Biodiversity needs a little more depth of revision than others for me.

    What's your pain topic?

    They can be different

    i assume so ... the biodiversity and evolution parts of f212 are killing me

    Extremely time consuming with certain areas, yes!
    I am grateful I had studied Biodiversity and Evolution at the end of the year, as I still remember it!
    Give it two months... GONE.

    Are you. Ready for Monday?

    Here it goes...
    MODE OF ACTION:
    They re a fundamental part of our immune defence mechanism against foreign particles with our bodies.
    They obviously engulf these foreign particles once detected and the cells are initiated after antibody production.
    Powerful enzymes in which can break down the particles for suitable engulfment.
    Receptors are present on their membranes which can detect any foreign material beforehand.

    STRUCTURES:
    (Neutrophil)
    - Multi lobed nucleus.
    - High level of flexibility for specialised fitting around the pathogenic material.
    - Shortly lived - they last up to twelve hours high the blood; a few days within the human tissue.
    - Lysosomes - overlapped with above.
    - Granular cytoplasm within its cell membrane.

    (Monocytes)
    - Oblong nuclear shaping.
    - Larger than Neutrophils.
    - They behave as Neutrophils when leaving the blood jut before differentiation into Macrophages in certain contexts.
    - They last a very long time within the body.

    I do A2 geography as i completed gcse geography in year 10 so we started AS in year 11, so i really quite like biodiversity!
    food and health i really hate - there is a lot of content, lots of possibilities for suggest questions and my teacher for that topic was terrible

    Phagocytes attack and Engulf Pathogens
    When a Pathogen enters the body its antigens indicate that it is a foreign cell
    Antibodies in the blood attach to the Antigen on the pathogen.
    Phagocytes have protein molecules on their membrane which act as receptors and bind to the antibody which is currently attached to the pathogen.
    Phagocyte then engulfs the pathogen which is place inside a phagosome (Like a vesicle)
    Intracellular lysosomes release enzymes into the phagosome which then kill the pathogen

    AHA!
    Lucky you... I am guessing you aced Geography one time!?
    Well done!

    can someone help? In the immune response does differentiation into plasma cells and memory cells of B/T lymphocytes occur before or after clonal expansion?

    I am pretty sure that is happens after Clonal Selection and Expansion.

    Clonal Expansion differentiates into different T-lymphocytes in which T-helper comes under.
    T-helper cells help activate the B-lymphocytes in order for them to proceed into forming plasma.
