    Is it just me or are the grade boundaries really low for last june's paper? 65% odd for an A what's with that? not complaining though if you can drop a third of the marks on every question and still ace it!

    What do we need to know about muscle bar the sarcomere/sliding filament model
    ----------------------Description-----------------------Function
    Smooth Muscle ---------------------------------- Involuntary, in arterioles constricting
    Cardiac------------------------------------- --- Heart muscle, described as myogenic
    Skeletal------------Striated-------------------------Voluntary/conscious

    Can someone fill the rest of that table in adding/taking out incorrect stuff and tell me what other things we need to know on muscle apart from the sliding filament

    Free RNA nucleotides are activated, two extra phosphoryl groups are added to make ATP, GTP,
    CTP and UTP.

    ....Do we need to know that?? :/

    Morning guys and gals!

    For those of you who have just got up and are feeling a little nervous, go and lock yourself in the bathroom, get in the shower and sing, ignoring all protests from parents, siblings and pets. You'll feel a lot better

    EDIT: And get washed if you like. It's up to you :dontknow:

    Grade boundaries in Jun10 and Jan11 were 65/100 and 60/100 raw marks respectively for an A.

    That just tells you how bloody annoying this exam is.

    Anyone care to sum up the different types of genetic crosses, and the resulting phenotypes?

    Do we need to know in detail what epistasis and stuff does to the ratios? And what does it mean when they are working in 'complementary fashion'?

    I actually don't know how I feel :dontknow: .. I don't have {much} pressure on this exam, I just want to do really really well (considering how much work I've put in for it)

    I guess I just want to get it out of the way like you :rofl: .. How are you feeling?

    Haha! :awesome: .. Singing is so therapeutic, regardless of ability :dance:

    And I'll wish you good luck too, though I'm likely to be around for the next 2-3 hours, so I'm likely to say it again closer to the time

    what do i need to know for homeobox genes?
    just went through this and all we need to know is that homeobox genes(arranged in clusters known as hox clusters) control the development of the body plan of organisms and that this is similar in many, if not all, eukaryotes e.g. plants, animals and fungi. This body plan includes the polarity e.g. posterior and anterior and positioning of the organs(segmentation). This all happens in stages and can last upto months.

    key words:

    1) segmentation
    2) polarity
    3 ) anterior
    4) posterior

    Homeotic genes are similar in plants, animals and fungi. These genes control the
    development of body plans and are expressed in specific patterns and in particular stages
    of development depending on when they are activated.
    The homeobox is a sequence of DNA that codes for a region of 60 amino acids, and the
    resulting protein is found in most, if not all, eukaryotes. The region binds to DNA so that
    they can regulate transcription. In animals the homeobox is common in genes concerned
    with the control of developmental events, such as segmentation, the establishment of the
    anterior-posterior axis and the activation of genes coding for body parts such as limbs
