    Hey, yeah I'm glad it's in the afternoon! How's your revision going?
    I'm doing zoology in uni too!
    I was going to put Reading as my insurance too but the offer was higher than my firm ahah
    Ooh where is your firm/insurance? And what is your offer?

    Yeah I think I just need BCC, and so a C in this exam to get a B overall in Biology
    I'm so nervous about these exams, can't wait for them to end.

    My brain is refusing to take in any more info.

    I've gotten to a stage where if I constantly force information into my brain it just replaces the others that I've just looked over, especially when I panic and think about how much time I've got left. I think I'm just going to take my time and revise little bits at a time. Can't do much about it now lol.

    I have a question:

    Can someone please help me with homeobox genes and apoptosis. I am clueless as I don't understand these at all so I hope somebody could help me. Thank you!

    "Compare and contrast synapses and neuromuscular junctions" - This could be a synoptic question. What would the differences be?!
    Synapse
    Neurotransimtter : Noradrenaline/Various
    Smooth presynaptic membrane
    More postsynaptic receptors
    Action potential is not always amplified. I.e. if the stimulus is weak it will not excite the postsynaptic membrane to the threshold level

    Neuromucular Junction
    Neurotransmitter : Acetylcholine
    Has clefts on the presynaptic membrane
    Fewer postsynaptic receptors
    The muscle will always contract

    I've firmed Queen Mary and my offer's 300 points with a C in Biology, but I do welsh bac which counts for 120 so really it's like BC or CDE
    I don't have an insurance, which is kind of scary! Because half my other offers were higher and the other half I just didn't want to go to

    Ahh BCC's good I'm sure you'll get it! I know, same. Especially with this module, there's just so much content. I'm resitting f214 aswell which I'm not looking forward too

    I keep getting asked what "Homobox" genes do by mine? :curious:

    It was funny the first time. Habituation has led to me not finding it remotely funny.:indiff:

    Was Browsing through and seeing what everyone is up for tomorrow in the exam.

    Until I saw a whole list of posts on the Menstrual Cycle, I screamed like a Little Girl...

    Until I realised it was the AQA thread.... THANK GOD FOR THAT!

    Meiosis II has half the number of chromosomes because it's the haploid daughter cells from Meiosis I that are dividing, rather than a diploid cell.
    In Anaphase II, the sister chromatids are separated so each new daughter cell inherits one chromatid from each chromosome.

    Apoptosis is programmed cell death which causes separation of the digits (fingers/toes etc)
    1. Enzymes break down the cell cytoskeleton
    2. The cytoplasm becomes dense and the organelles become closely packed
    3. The cell surface membrane changes and blebs form
    4. The chromatin condenses, nuclear envelope breaks down and DNA is broken into fragments
    5. The cell is broken down and packaged into vesicles, then the debris is removed

    Too much apoptosis leads to loss and degeneration of cells, but not enough can lead to the formation of tumours.

    Hope that helped a bit

    i thought it was a copy of the DNA?
    Googled it....wikipedia says its complementary DNA which is basically a copy, well a complementary copy, right?

    The power stroke allows for the muscle contraction. It slides thin filament along thick so shortening the I band and H-zones.

    Power stroke-myosin head bends causing thin filament to be pulled along and overlap with the thick filament. ADP and Pi released.
