    Can anyone clear this up for me please, I'm confused!

    So the kingdom Prokaryotae was divided into two groups: Bacteria and Archaebacteria. But the textbook says that the three domains are Bacteria, Archaea and Eukaryotae??

    I don't understand.. someone explain??

    Whats biological catalyst again? It was a 2 marker, I need ms answer
    A protein with a specific tertiary structure that speeds up a metabolic reaction in an organism ?

    Also in classification was it traditionally archaea eukaryotes and bacteria then modified to 5 - prokaryotes protoctists plants fungi and animals? This stuff confuses me loads

    Yeh the prokaryotoes were divided into two groups but all the other four kingdoms were put into the Eukaryotaes as they all have a nucleas ?

    Yepp that's correct

    Antibodies have a hinge region that is flexible so it can bind to many antigens
    A constant region that allows it to attach to phagocytes
    A variable region that binds to complementary shaped antigens (to undergo neutralisation)
    I think I'm missing a point...

    What are coenzymes, and their function?
    What you said is right... might be worth mentioning the heavy and light polypeptide chains and the disulphide bridges that hold the structure together...

    A coenzyme is an organic non protein molecule that binds to the active site of an enzyme at just about the same time as the substrate molecule...
    In many cases a coenzyme is essential for the reaction to take place...
    Thats all i've got:confused:

    What are the disadvantages of Ex Situ conservation?

    The other way around. First the 5 kindgdoms then the 3 domain system came

    Domains came after the formation of the 5 kingdoms: These were Eukaryotes and Prokaryotes but prokaryotes were later differentiated and became Archeabacteria and Eubacteria due to the 16s ribosomal RNA structure...

    Yeah but, I don't get how a the kingdom was divided into those two groups but two of those groups are domains...?

    Figures don't need to be memorised they will usually give you a graph in the question to state figures from.

    Domain and kingdom
    Domain: 3 groups, archaebacteria, bacteria and eukaryotes
    Kingdom, 5 groups, phylum, class, order, family, genus, species
    Domain: Based on RNA and DNA, reflects on the origins of prokaryotes and eukaryotes, reflects on the similarity between eukaryotic kingdoms, eukaryotes split into different kingdoms
