Modeling Protein Structure
Students examine amino acids and discuss the properties of side chains. In this proteins lesson students demonstrate the foldings of peptides.
7.012 Section Problem - Enzymes/Protein Structure
It says that it is for a general biology course, but it seems to be more specific to biochemistry. Enzyme action and amino acid structure are the topics of this college level worksheet. Takers match protease enzymes to their specificities. They answer questions and analyze graphs of enzyme activity.
Endocrine System Review
In this biology worksheet, students review the functions of the endocrine system and focus upon fourteen distinct parts of the activity.
Young scholars conduct a variety of experiments to explore protein. In this biology lesson, students solve a mystery by testing for the presence of glucose, protein starch and triglycerides. They explain how DNA transcription and translation happen.
Biochemistry, Secretion, and Transport of Hormones
For this biology worksheet, students look at various steps involved in the biochemistry involved in the use of hormones on the human body.
The Role of Amyloid in Alzheimer's Disease
Students explore amyloid proteins through a series of experiments. In this biology lesson, students explain the causes of Alzheimer's disease. They identify common symptoms related to this condition.
Amino Acids, Proteins, and Enzymes
Eighteen bright blue slides with bold fonts exhibit types of proteins, amino acids, and peptides. Chemistry learners are able to identify polar and nonpolar amino acids, amino acid structures, and various types of peptides when they finish viewing this collection of slides. Present this as part of your organic chemistry unit.
Review of Molecular Biology
In this molecular biology learning exercise, students complete 50 multiple choice questions on DNA and RNA replication, translation and transcription.
Vocabulary that is essential to this topic is introduced and defined at the start of this slide show. The following slides help students understand proteins and their use and involvement in everyday substances. Great diagrams help your class understand the overall appearance and behavior of proteins, and the broad topic will help activate prior knowledge.
Actions of Hormones on Target Cells
This resource outlines and summarizes 8 pages of a text on actions of hormones on target cells. The handout portion includes vocabulary clarifications, color diagrams, and important information; however, there are also references to online quiz questions, which are not included. The resource ends with 17 study questions that refer to the given information. You could use this as a study guide for a test.
In this DNA worksheet, students describe how the cell stores all of the data needed to produce the required proteins for the body. Then they describe the ribosomes division and how is attaches itself to RNA and makes protein by forming peptide bonds between amino acids.
Chemistry Worksheet 14
In this chemistry worksheet, students sketch several diagrams of different peptide chains. Students sketch diagrams of galactose and fructose.
Mother Nature's Marvelous Menu 3
Twelfth graders describe the relationship between amino acids and proteins with reference to the peptide bond. They discuss enzymes. They recognize the value of proteins by using examples from the human body.
The Four Groups of Biologically Important Compounds
This is not they typical set of teacher instructions. It is an organized chart of the important organic compounds. For each, the involved elements, the name of the building block monomers, the names of polymers, extra information, and a class demonstration is listed. Use this as a guide for preparing your lecture and demonstrations when introducing biology or biochemistry pupils to the biologically significant materials. You could even have your class do the demonstrations as a lab activity.
Final Exam Practice - General Biology
A 17-page practice final exam for a college-level introductory biology course is contained in this resource. Matching and short answer questions cover every topic that you would expect to teach during an advanced biology course including DNA and general genetics, enzyme activity, protein structure, nerve impulses, metabolic pathways, and more. Since it is a practice exam, the answers follow.
7.012 F’04 Problem Set 1 ~ Biology
Course identification information is included in the upper left corner as well as within the title of this worksheet. If you overlook or remove that information, you are left with a tremendous college biology assignment. There are only four problems to address, but each occupies at least an entire page. The first deals with ions, amino acids, and cell organelles. The second encompasses enzyme action. The third questions the structure of the cell wall in relation to enzymes. The fourth is an analysis of macromolecule structure.
7.012 F'04 Problem Set 1 - Cellular Structure
College-level biologists describe ions and van der Waals forces. They identify parts of amino acid chains on diagrams and describe the chains in a checklist. In a second section, learners compare prokaryotic to eukaryotic cells and then match organelles with their functions or characteristics. Finally, they mark portions of a sequence of amino acids that are expected to be transmembrane regions. This is an ideal assignment to give as a unit review.
Protein Synthesis Worksheet
Future geneticists use base pairing rules to build DNA and RNA polypeptide strands, and then explain both transcription and translation. Although the chains themselves are a little blurry, there is plenty of room in them for learners to fill in the missing complimentary base. This exercise provides essential practice when your class is studying molecular biology.
The Clark Family Story: Tracing the Cause of Hemophilia
Ms. Strohfeldt did not omit anything when she designed this comprehensive lesson plan on DNA mutation and sex-linked traits. Begin with a pretest as an anticipatory set. Read a case history of the Clark family and the occurrence of hemophilia in the family. Biologists perform a simulation of a gel electrophoresis for each member of the family and explore DNA sequences. You will find detailed teacher's notes, worksheets with answer keys, and resource links to help you teach this lesson.
Lesson #2 ~ Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
You might love this instructional activity, or you might not. Basically, high school scientists read through a script in which someone interviews a physicist, a biologist, and a chemist in regard to their use of nanotechnology. The names of the involved characters are clever, and the material is fascinating. It is quite long, however. The pictures that are discussed will need to be enlarged and displayed as they represent posters on the walls of the interviewees. This can be used in any science course as an enrichment activity.
