Aerobic cellular respiration requires that oxygen be present.
Krebs cycle is located in the matrix of the mitochondria.
Chargaff's rules state that in DNA the totalled proportions of adenine and thymine always equal the totalled proportions of guanine and cytosine.
False; totalled proportions of adenine and guanine always equal those of thymine and cytosine.
Ribosomes move along mRNA in a 5'-->3' direction
If an X-ray technician suffered genetic damage, it would most likely be due to chemical mutagenic agents.
False; physical mutagenic agents
Kidney's remove waste, balance blood pH, and maintain water balance.
Insulin is produced in a healthy person when blood sugar is low.
False; when blood sugar is high
Insulin secretion must be decreased during times of stress to keep blood glucose level high.
Information from your brain is moved to your leg muscles by motor neurons.
Electrochemical messages are carried by the movement of ions through the nerve membrane.
In living organisms, buffers do which of the following?
Maintain pH in the cells within a narrow range, allowing the enzymes to function.
When atoms from two different elements are brought together under conditions that will favour a reaction and they have similar electronegativities, which type of chemical bond is most likely to form?
Non-polar covalent bonds
Structurally, a sulfhydryl group is most similar to which of the following?
A nitrogen atom would be found bonded to a hydrogen atom in which of the following functional groups?
Which of the following functional groups would be found in a monosaccharide?
carbonyl and hydroxyl
When digested, which of the following substances would yield a mixture of amino acids?

When two organic molecules are joined together and a water molecule is removed, the reaction is called which of the following?
dehydration synthesis (condensation)
The extremely large diversity of structure seen in proteins is mainly due to...
different numbers, kinds, and sequences of amino acids.
During the process of glycolysis, some hydrogen atoms are essentially removed from glucose. This is an example of...
The key point about oxidation is that it is a process in which
there is a loss of electrons
When free energy is released during a chemical reaction it is called
an exergonic reaction
The activity of an enzyme can be altered by changing the pH of its surroundings slightly. This change in pH works by
altering its three-dimensional shape

acetylhyde is converted into ethanol
During DNA replication, the function of RNA primers is to
serve as starting points for DNA strand elongation by DNA polymerase III in prokaryotes.
