    Yeah I managed to revise most of it and reviewed Humans and Galapagos and then crashed hard because I started hallucinating lol :eek:
    I've heard a lot of people say they think Galapagos will come up :yep:
    Ahh that's scary! :eek:

    can someone please explain the sliding filament model? I really don't understand it... Thanks


    MYOSIN PROTEIN (thick filament)
    ACTIN PROTEIN (thin filament)
    Z lines

    H Zone is the part that has only MYOSIN
    I Band is the part that has only ACTIN
    A Band is the length of the MYOSIN also contains overlapping ACTIN

    When the muscle contracts, the H zone decreases, and the I band decreases but the A band stays the same length..requires ATP which is hydrolysed to ADP + Pi

    DNA is made out of monomers of nucleotides
    Protein is made out of monomers of amino acids

    DNA consists of two polynucleotide strands
    Protein consists of a primary structure, which can coil and fold in any way

    DNA has hydrogen bonds between the bases
    Protein has peptide bonds between amino acids

    DNA is in the nucleus off the cell
    Proteins are found outside the cell generally, e.g outside ribosomes, packaged at vesicles.

    a long ethics question on the lac operon? :eek:
    No, on gene therapy, genetic screening, xenotransplanation or somethinh. Don't stress!

    so..what kind of grades do people need to got to get onto their course ?
    I only need a C in Biology to get into mine
    Although the way f214 went and the way revision's going for this module...
    I'm aiming for a B though. How about you?

    No, for the fight or flight response you'd need to probably know.

    - The sensory input comes in the form of audio/visual stimuli which alert the hypothalamus

    - The hypothalamus responds, by further activating the sympathethic nervous system > which is able to release the neurotransmitter Noradrenaline > which can travel in the blood and bind to specific target receptors on the adrenal medulla

    - The adrenal medulla secretes Adrenaline, effects include: Increased heart rate, increased ventillation rate, increase in blood volume to skeletal muscle, increase in mental awareness, due to dillation of pupils. Decrease in peristasis(digestion) so more blood flow avaliable to skeletal muscle. Release of endophorins which are natural pain killers..etcetcetc

    I think:

    Species richness - the amount of species in a specific habitat

    Species eveness - the relative abundance of each species in a specific habitat, e.g 40 dogs 5 cats would be a low species eveness

    It was going okay, till about 4minutes ago...I stumbled across the thread about Sarfaraz Shah being shot dead by police officers.. and the video has made me feel so shocked/sick I'm put off revision. Some people are so heartless it makes me really sad

    I hope it's going well for you?

    Aww I'm sure you'll have got anA this time round
    Can I be cheeky and ask what topics she's predicted? My teachers have been pretty useless haha
    You too!!

    Meiosis and Variation
    - diagrams of the stages
    -hardy weinberg
    -variation

    Biotechnology
    -growth curves
    -immobilised enzymes

    Genomes
    -golden rice
    -gene therapy
    -ethical concerns

    Ecosystems
    -succession

    Population and sustainability
    -predator/prey
    -conservation

    Plant responses
    -Auxin - light and apical dominance

    Animal response
    -sliding filament model

    Behaviour
    -innate behaviour

    This is what he has predicted based on the papers so far..

    Module 1 is quite big as is Module 2...so we can expect q uite a few questions

    But Module 3 and 4 are much shorter and it is quite easy to see which topics have and have not been examined yet

    Would'nt you expect Sequencing PCR to come up? There was a 9 mark question on DNA replication?:confused: in F212 hmm
