AQA Additional Biology part 2 use this in conjunction with your revision guide Enzymes

Substances in plants and animals that speed biochemical reactions are called enzymes. Enzymes can build up or break down other molecules. The molecules they act on are called substrates. Enzymes are catalystschemicals that hasten a chemical reaction without undergoing any change themselves.

Fermentation Fermentation Fermentation is when a cell uses sugar for energy without using oxygen at the

same time. Yeast is an organism that ferments. When yeast ferments sugar, the yeast eats sugar and makes alcohol. Other cells make vinegar or lactic acid when they ferment sugar. When yeast ferments, it breaks down the glucose (C6H12O6) into ethanol

(CH3CH2OH) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Ethanol fermentation always produces ethanol and carbon dioxide. It is important in bread-making, brewing, and wine-making. Lactic acid fermentation produces lactic acid. It happens in muscles of animals when they need lots of energy fast.

Homeostasis Homeostasis (homeo meaning "same" and stasis meaning "condition") is when an organism keeps its bodily conditions (pH, temperature, amount of oxygen or carbon dioxide in the blood, for example) in a stable condition. It does so by regulating its inner equilibrium. In

living things, the study of how they keep in a stable condition if called physiology. Examples of homeostasis: The regulation of water and minerals in the body. The regulation of body temperature. This is done by sweating to cool off and shivering to warm up.

In mammals, the main organs involved with homeostasis are: The hypothalamus and pituitary gland the lungs the skin the muscles

the kidneys the liver and pancreas Homeostasis

Huntingtons disease is a disorder of the nervous system caused by a dominant allele of a gene and can therefore be passed on by only one parent who has the disorder Cystic fibrosis must be inherited from both parents. The parents may be carriers of the disorder without having

the disorder themselves. It is caused by a recessive allele of a gene and can therefore be passed on by parents that do not have the disorder Embryos can be screened for alleles of these and other disorders

Genetic family trees Consult your partner and assess the probability of these genetic

disorders being passed on to the children In Books Work out the probability of genetic disorders being passed on

Produce a report for the family of William has huntingtons disease what is the probability of Kristi getting huntingtons Show David and Jessica how you came to that conclusion Both Mary and Peter are carriers of the CF gene advise

them of the probability of their children getting cystic fibrosis Explain to them how you calculated the probability Anne has CF and is thinking about getting married and starting a family what advice would you give her?
