Example text

The trans-Golgi network is the exit site of the Golgi apparatus. It sorts proteins for delivery to their next destination [11]. Proteins (polypeptides) destined for the Golgi apparatus form within the RER. Once they are transferred to the Golgi apparatus, additional molecules (such as carbohydrates or lipids) can be added to them there. The Golgi apparatus is the site for membrane differentiation and the development of surface specificity. For example, the polysaccharide moieties of mucopolysaccharides and of the membrane glycoproteins are synthesized and attached to the polypeptide during its passage through the Golgi apparatus.

In the inactive form of the kinase, the Nucleus ❶ Ligand binds with its receptor on the cell membrane. ❷ Ligand and receptor move into a clathrin-coated pit. ❸ Pit closes off and forms a clathrin-coated vesicle. ❹ The vesicle forms an endosome. ❺ Ligand can be used by the cell or undergo lysosomal degradation. ❻ Receptor is recycled to the surface of the cell membrane. 11 Internalization of a stimulus into a cell via its receptor.

Enzyme classification, therefore, is based on the type of reaction catalyzed by the various enzymes. Enzymes fall within six general classifications: ●● ●● ●● ●● ●● Oxidoreductases (dehydrogenases, reductases, oxidases, peroxidases, hydroxylases, and oxygenases) are enzymes that catalyze all reactions in which one compound is oxidized and another is reduced. Examples of oxidoreductases are the enzymes found in the electron transport chain located on the inner membrane of the mitochondria. Other examples are the cytochrome P450 enzymes located on the ER of liver cells.
