    My prediction on what will come up:
    Photosynthesis experiment (either leaf disks or photsynthometer)
    Adrenaline
    Diabetes
    Thermoregulation
    Heart
    Respiration ( 1 markers)
    Role of Synapse
    Possibly kidneys and regulation of blood glucose conc...
    Didn't role of synapse come up in June 2014 though?

    what could come up in thermoregulation/heart and adrenaline?

    I'd like to add action potentials, synapses, properties of ATP, respiration experiments, and diagram of mitochondria, some suggest questions on disruption of synaptic transmission

    What respiration experiments are there, do we need to know them?

    Primary: location of the reaction centre, this is where light energy is absorbed to excite electrons so that they can pass into the electron transport chain.
    It's found in the centre of photosystems.
    Contains Chlorophyll A, P680,P700

    Accessory: absorbs light energy of a wide range of wavelengths, absorbs any light energy that the primary pigment can't. Then transfers this light energy to the primary pigment.
    Surrounds the primary pigment in the photosystem.
    Contains chlorophyll B, Xanthophyll and Carotenoid.

    Hope that helps!

    Thank you so much! That's brilliant!

    where in the Kidney is PH lowest??!!?!?
    The medulla, hence why water moves out of the descending limb by osmosis.

    When GP is converted to TP in the calvin cycle, are two molecules of ATP and two molecules of NADPH used or is it just one molecule of each, as my two text books have different numbers, thanks
    two since there are two gp molecules

    Ph?????? why ph isnt it about water potential?

    take a syringe half full of hydrogenate carbonate.... put leaf discs into them. Put your finger on the end of the syringe and pull the plunger. This causes them to sink as spongy mesophyll air is replaced by the hydrogente carbonate solution. Shine a white light on it and it should rise up again ( as co2 from the hydrogen carbonate is used up and oxygen is produced). Measure the time as the time it takes to rise is proportional to photosynthesis rate..then you change the factor you want to investigate.

    Leaf disk experiment:
    Get leaf disks from a plant ( same size and same part of plant)
    Place in a syringe filled with dilute NaHCo3.
    Hold upright and pull on the plunger... This increases density of disks as air is removed.
    Transfer contents in a beaker illuminates with light.
    Time how long it takes to float to the surface.

    Why does it float?
    Because as it photosynthesises it releases O2 therefore density decreases.

    Can someone please summarise what we need to know about Endotherms and Ectotherms?
    including how they regulate body temperature

    LIR was a main part in the JUne 2014 paper, dont think it will come up again this year
    Hopefully they will go for Non cyclic photophosphorylation this time! But Calvin cycle has a wider range of questions to ask tbh

    I agree. The question about endotherms and ectotherms is explained in the book

    Thanks for this, but last year there was a 3 marker on roles of synapse, a QWC on regulation of blood glucose concentration (5 marker?) and q's some on diabetes ain't it?

    But i agree with the thermoreg., adrenaline, heart and repiration
