Ok. Thank you

Could you say the light dependent reaction takes place in the grana or would that be incorrect and do you have to say thylakoid membranes

It is not incorrect. You can say the light-dependent stage occurs in the thylakoid membranes of the grana if you want to be specific, however I doubt they would mark you down if you just said 'grana'.

Also is co2 involved with the Photolysis of water or it it just used in the light independent stage?

Is the difference between cytosol and cytoplasm that cytoplasm is the fluid and organelles  surrounding except the nucleus whereas cytosol is just the fluid without the organelles

Hello!

Hope you all are doing well. I have a question on apoptosis.

 List two examples of situations that could trigger the mitochondrial pathway of apoptosis and List three examples of situations that could trigger the external death receptor pathway of apoptosis.

The first one I can answer with things like 'the viral infection of a cell can cause it to perform apoptosis to prevent any further spread' and 'When a cell's genome is damaged'. However, I cannot think of enough answers for the second question. I'm not even sure if the questions were asking for these answers.  :'(

Any help would be appreciated :)
Just someone who likes to learn a lot of questions.

Unit 1 exams are run by your own school - so they set the rules. However, generally speaking, theory books aren't allowed for any science exams with with the exception of a formula sheet in physics.

Hello

For the question of leaves are removed transpiration stops. Explain why this is so

Would this be a sufficient answer:
Transpiration is the evaporation of water from the leaves of a plant through the stomata. The stomata are present on the underside of the leaf therefore if leaves are removed there will be no stomata and transpiration will not be able to occur

would it be correct if for ribosomes relating structure to function you said
RNA bind to mRNA to produce protein via the process of translation. translate an mRNA sequence into a polypeptide.

Also for vacuoles relating structure to function would it be correct if you said they are involved in intracellular digestion and release of cellular waste products. maintain water balance in cells.

Thanks!

What is a good definition for exocrine signalling and neurotransmitters? And what points should I make when describing what a second messenger is? Thanks
