    On paper 1:
    Lipids and proteins.
    Enzyme action and affecting factors(inhibitors).
    DNA/mRNA.
    ATP.
    Inorganic Ions.
    Mitosis.
    Diffusion/osmosis/active transport.
    Cell membrane.
    Immune system and vaccines.
    Antibodies in medicine.
    HIV/viruses.
    I think that was it, and the application question was about enzymes and inhibitors effecting Alzheimer's I think

    Do you mean the question that said 'describe how a vaccine causes the production of antibodies?'

    I just put that vaccines contain antigens, which stimulate helper T cells which stimulate B cells to divide by clonal selection into plasma cells. Plasma cells produce many antibodies rapidly

    Yeah I know, but if paper 2's easier then paper 1's boundaries will be higher - like we can't tell whether this paper was easy or hard in comparison, if you get me? Haha
