    thats its own predictive work - what id recommend is using the set of model answers ive given you and reading over key topics (carbohydrate digestion, test for carbohydrates, enzymes, cell fractionation, indirect AT of glucose, cholera, lung + lung diseases, heart + heart disease, immunity)

    i know it seems like everything but i can quickly summarise the most important parts + use the model answers attachment

    carbohydrate digestion:

    1. STARCH, by salivary amylase in the mouth and pancreatic amylase in the small intestine into Maltose. Maltose by Maltase on lining of SI into glucose

    2. SUCROSE, by sucrase on lining of SI

    3. LACTOSE, by lactase on lining of SI. lactose intolerance = lack lactase enzyme, therefore have diarrhoea and flatulence. diarhoeaa = undigested lactose lowers WP of lumen of SI, water enters lumen by osmosis - water faeces. flatulence = undigested lactose enters LI - brokendown by microorganisms, releasing gas

    When they ask about antibody/enzymes being specific, what sort of question would you need to mention the primary structure?
    I usually talk about tertiary structure determining shape etc etc but then some mark schemes talk about the primary structure as well so I'm not really sure when to mention it :/

    you can use both (the mark scheme give more answers then required) - its safe to talk about a specific tertiary structure leading to a specific 3d shape, either giving a specific active site shape or specific antigen binding site

    Thank you!
    Also how would you explain protein digestion?

    Test for Carbohydrates:

    1. STARCH, add iodine - turns blue/black

    2. REDUCING SUGAR, heat with benedicts - turns brick red

    3. NON-REDUCING SUGAR, heat with benedicts - no change (stays blue), add dilute hydrochloric acid then add sodium hydrogencarbonate, heat with benedicts - turns brick red

    not much to do with this: protease in stomach and small intestine (this version made in pancreas) - hydrolysis, adding water, breaks peptide bonds, producing many AAs

    quick summary on b/t cells / immunity?

    - phagocytes stimulate t cells
    - t cells form t helper and t memory cells
    - t helper cells stimulate b cells
    - b cells form plasma and b memory cells
    - plasma cells make antibodies
