    Cell Respiration Lab Research Question What is the optimal temperature for germinating pea-seeds where the rate of respiration is the greatest? Background Information Cell Respiration refers to the biochemical process conducted by the cells of an organism that combines glucose and oxygen to produce energy in the form of ATP, along with two by-products, water and carbon dioxide. The equation representing this chemical reaction is shown below. C6H12O6 + 6 O2 6 CO2 + 6 H2O + ATP Although plants and

    plants, and are considered a process of evolution as they have evolved in order to adapt to the change in the environment. In this investigation we will be observing the results of both types of plants under harsh conditions. It is preferable that the Polyploidy plant will survive harsher conditions as they have actually developed due to the change in their biosphere therefore making it more likely that they will survive unfavourable conditions. In this experiment we will be taking a look at which

    the mitochondrion or the primary plastid. Most proteins targeted to mitochondria and primary plastids carry N-terminal transit peptides that are later removed in the organelle matrix. Mitochondria and primary plastids are surrounded by two membranes. Consequently, their import machineries are composed of two translocons: one for the outer membrane and the other for the inner

    sunlight to synthesise nutrients from water and carbon dioxide. (source 1) Photosynthesis includes a significant scientific background behind it. The process takes place in chloroplasts, which is a type of plant cell organelle frequently referred to a plastid. They are recognised to be eukaryotic cell structures. The chloroplast a green pigment known as the chlorophyll. The function of the chlorophyll is to absorb light for photosynthesis. Here is what a chloroplast looks from the inside just as well

    Biology Semester 1 Research Project Cellular Process Meagan Baggett 4th Period The endosymbiotic theory explains how eukaryotic cells may have evolved from prokaryotic cells. Symbiosis is a close relationship between two different organisms. The discovery of the endosymbiotic theory took hundreds of years to be considered as real and was eventually it was finalized. The endosymbiotic theory is believed to be first introduced and described by Andreas Schimper in 1883. Schimper was a

    2003). The formation of these crystals is specific where they have a defined shape and specific site. It usually takes place inside the vacuole of specialized cells called crystal idioblasts. The specialized cell has enlarged nucleus, specialized plastids, increased endoplasmic reticulum, elevated levels of rRNA, and unique vacuolar components. The abundant Golgi complexes in these idioblasts have also been found to be involved in transporting a calcium binding crystal idioblast specific protein,
