Example text

See the clinical box on page 28. What is the relationship among matter, elements, and atoms? What is the basic structure of an atom? Molecules and Compounds Atoms combine chemically in specific ways to form molecules (mol′-e-k¯ulz). For example, two atoms of oxygen may combine to form a molecule of gaseous oxygen (O2), and an atom of sodium may combine with an atom of chlorine to form a molecule of sodium chloride (NaCl). Sodium chloride is a chemical compound because it is composed of two elements chemically combined in a fixed ratio.

Functional proteins include enzymes and antibodies. 17. Enzymes catalyze chemical reactions. 18. Nucleic acids are very large molecules formed of many nucleotides. 19. A nucleotide consists of a five-carbon sugar (ribose in RNA and deoxyribose in DNA), a phosphate group, and an organic base. qxd 10/23/08 5:49 PM Page 39 Part 1 20. There are two types of nucleic acids: deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA). DNA determines hereditary traits and controls cellular functions. RNA works with DNA in the synthesis of proteins.

Cellular respiration Breakdown of organic nutrients, which releases energy to form ATP. Centrioles (centr ϭ center) Paired cylindrical organelles adjacent to the nucleus that form the spindle during cell division. Chromosome (chrom ϭ color; soma ϭ body) A threadlike or rodlike structure in cell nuclei that is composed of DNA and protein. Cytoplasm (cyt ϭ cell; plasma ϭ molded) The semifluid substance located between the cell nucleus and the plasma membrane. Diffusion Passive movement of molecules from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration.
