    were we supposed to know that?
    Are you pissing me? You didn't know enzymes are proteins? So you are telling me that you didn't know how proteins are made either? :p: I'm not trying to be haughty here, but this should be elementary.

    I think the question wasn't worded well! I only realised in the last minute it was about protein synthesis - and yes, I know that was stupid of me not to realise it instantly - I didn't get time to write it though At first I put something about transcription-initiation complex and promoter region! :eek3:

    That paper REALLY DID NOT test our knowledge of the spec!!

    It took the mick!

    Here I was, sitting in the exam for the first few pages, thinking, oh - wow, this is alright, not as bad as we thought - and then the soda lime stuff and eptopic stuff etc.. come up and I just die!

    About the Bradykinins - is it something to do with the inflammatory response?


    They BEST lower the boundaries - VERY VERY low! Or else...

    Enzymes are globular proteins, so the question was related to protein synthesis. I wasted 2 minutes figuring this out in the exam. :/
    i was not sure whether to write about protein synthesis, or the reason why more enzymes should be made... as in, those neurones were over-stimulated, thus needed more neurotransmitters etc.... At the end, in really small writting (Cos there wasn't enough flipping space) i quickly wrote, the enzymes are created on the ribosome via translation of the genetic material... would have written more, but no space... sigh

    Thats 4 points down the drain

    Etopic (or whatever) and the soda lime question! How did people find that?!


    Oh i tink i managed to figure it out.
    Here were my points on ectopic heartbeat:
    - QRS inversion noted on ECG trace
    - QRS bit is involved in depolarization in the ventricles allowing it to contract
    - Hence QRS inversion means there was hyperpolarization of the ventricular myocaridal muscle
    - Since there was no bp reading, it is fair to deduce that the heart skiped a beat
    - This could be caused by ischaemia - lack of oxygen supply to the heart - in this case its not a serious lack of 02 just a temporary one.
    - Could result in ineffective circulation for a few brief moments..

    Haha, don't lie The question specifically said explain why "more enzyme molecules" are made. Or explain the process. Something like that. :p:

    I talked about size and number of organisms...thats all I could think of
    Yea that ques left me angry abit 2..heres what i put:
    - The age/stage of maturity of the insects were not specified so germinating seeds' respiration rates may have been compared to those of adult insects, young insects or a mixture. A valid comparison may be gained by comparing organisms of about the same developmental maturiy such as insect eggs abt to hatch against germinating seeds.
    - Insects were not subjected to the same nitrogen-gas control apparatus as they germinating seeds. They shud be subjected to the same controls.:yes:
