You have now created your individual project page.

--Mark Hill 09:58, 20 April 2009 (EST)You have not yet selected your individual project protein/method topic and still missing some homework items. 2009_Student#Individual_Projects Individual Projects

--Mark Hill 18:31, 19 March 2009 (EST)You still need to provide feedback for Lecture 4 - Nucleus.

--Mark Hill 22:55, 22 March 2009 (EST) Thank you for your Lecture 4 feedback I am glad you have understood the difference between a nuclear envelope and a cell membrane and teh dynamics of this envelope.

Lecture 4 - Nucleus - What did you find interesting and did not know about the nucleus?

From the nucleus lecture, I have learnt that the nucleus consists of two concentric membranes, which form the nuclear envelope. It was interesting to know that they break down during mitosis and also contain nuclear pores that make them permeable.

Lecture 5 - Exocytosis - What concept about exocytosis did you find difficult to understand?

Lecture 7 - Mitochondria - What types of cellular processes require lots of energy from the mitochondria?

The mitochondria produce energy (ATP) using energy that is stored in food by aerobic respiration. After glycolysis, pyruvate enters the mitochondrion to enter the Krebs cycle in order to complete the oxidation of organic fuel and finally produce ATP. Cellular processes such as signaling of cells, transportation of cells across cell membranes, cell differentiation, biosynthesis and locomotion require large amounts of the energy produced from the mitochondria.

Lecture 8 - Adhesion - What do the different "CAM" acronyms stand for?

CAM - cell adhesion molecules Ng-CAM stands for Neuroglia Cell Adhesion Molecule I-CAM stands for Intercellular Cellular Adhesion Molecule L-CAM stands for Liver Cell Adhesion Molecule

Lecture 10 - What is the name of the epidermal layer between the basal and granulosa layer and how does it relate to intermediate filaments?

The name of the epidermal layer between the basal and granulosa layer is called the stratum spinosum.

Lecture 14 - Confocal Microscopy - What are the 2 main forms of generating confocal microscopy?

Lecture 15 - Cell Cycle - What does "S" stand for in the S phase?

The S phase stands for the synthesis phase. It occurs during interphase between G1 phase and the G2 phase.
