Within the final ten years there was a substantial bring up of curiosity at the idea of the minimum mobilephone. With this time period we frequently suggest a cell-like constitution containing the minimum and enough variety of parts to be outlined as alive, or no less than in a position to exhibiting a number of the basic services of a dwelling phone.

Anus triglycerides and phospholipids, into glycerol and fatty acids; ● endopeptidases, which hydrolyse peptide bonds in the middle of protein molecules; ● exopeptidases, which hydrolyse peptide bonds at the ends of protein molecules (carboxypeptidases at the carboxyl end of the molecule, aminopeptidases at the amino end); ● dipeptidase, which hydrolyses dipeptides into amino acids. 56 D IGESTION IN A NIMALS (2) Region of gut Secretion Enzyme(s) & other contents Digestive action Buccal cavity (mouth) Stomach Amylase Mucus Pepsin (an endopeptidase) Hydrochloric acid Starch → maltose None – gives lubrication Protein → short chain peptides Saliva from salivary glands Gastric juice from gastric glands in stomach wall Lumen of small Bile intestine (duodenum and ileum) Bile salts Sodium hydrogen -carbonate Pancreatic juice Amylase Lipase Trypsin (an endopeptidase) Exopeptidases Cells in wall of ileum Maltase Dipeptidase None – provides optimum pH for pepsin and kills bacteria None – emulsify fats, giving larger area for enzyme action Raises pH: inactivates pepsin, gives optimum pH for other enzymes Starch → maltose Lipids → fatty acids and glycerol Proteins → short chain peptides Short chain peptides → dipeptides Maltose → α-glucose Dipeptides → amino acids Pepsin and trypsin are both secreted in an inactive form (pepsinogen and trypsinogen, respectively).

Most photosynthesis occurs in the palisade mesophyll. These cells have most chloroplasts. Air spaces in the spongy mesophyll allow movement of gases and water vapour through the leaf. Xylem in the vein (vascular bundle) transports water to the leaf. g. sugars and amino Cuticle Upper acids, to and from the leaf. epidermis The main function of the leaf is photosynthesis. For this the plant needs CO2 and H2O as ‘raw materials’. H2O is always supplied by the xylem. CO2 comes from respiration and from outside the leaf.

This results in the formation of normal (non-viscous) mucus instead of the viscous mucus made in CF sufferers. 37 Check yourself 1 The flow chart shows the main DNA Plasmids containing antibiotic resistance gene stages in genetic production of a Cut by enzyme A transgenic bacterium.
