Investigation 10- Energy Dynamics What did we do?
Investigation 10- Energy Dynamics Concepts Energy flow through an ecosystem Gross Primary Productivity Net Primary Productivity Energy Audit of an Ecosystem Energy is neither created or destroyed so it must all be accounted for in an energy audit study Light energy that is not lost as heat or waste by plant forms biomass which is consumed by larvae and that which is not lost as heat or waste forms biomass of the growing insect
Investigation 10- Energy Dynamics Procedure Grow Fast Plants from seeds; 6 per container Remove 10 plants on day 7, wash roots, dry them in incubator, and weigh them. What is Net Primary Productivity? Calculate NPP per plant by (18.27kcal/7 days)/10 plants Continue growing through day 14, and again remove 10 plants, wash, dry, and weigh
Day 14 \ Calculate NPP per plant by (40.46kcal/14 days)/10 plants Weigh one large Brussel sprout, cut in half, and place into Brassica Barn Weigh th instar white butterfly larvae and place into Brassica Barn Collect, dry, and mass the frass over the next 3 days Frass energy =4.76 kcal/g After 3 days, mass the larvae and the remaining portion of the Brussel sprout Larvae energy=.40 Wet mass of Larvae * 5.5 kcal/g Brussel sprout=.24 Wet mass of B.S. * 4.35 kcal/g

Investigation 4: Diffusion & Osmosis What did we do?
Diffusion & Osmosis Description Surface area to cell size dialysis tubing filled with starch- glucose solution in beaker filled with KI solution Effects of different concentrations of solutions on Elodea leaf potato cores in sucrose solutions Design an experiment to determine solute concentration of different colored unknown solutions
Size vs. Surface Area A cell that is actively metabolizing must stay small by continuously dividing so that it can efficiently move metabolites into and out of the cell Also, remember that there is only one copy of DNA! And… you may need to do this with spheres as well
Diffusion & Osmosis Conclusions water moves from high concentration of water (hypotonic=low solute) to low concentration of water (hypertonic=high solute) or you can say that water moves toward the area of more dissolved solute solute concentration & size of molecule affect movement through semi-permeable membrane
Investigation 4: Diffusion and Osmosis In animal cells, the direction of osmosis, in or out of a cell, depends on the concentration of solutes inside and outside of the plasma membrane… How is it different in plants? Water Potential= Pressure Potential + Solute Potential Water moves from higher potential to lower potential Solute potential is zero or negative and pressure potential is zero or positive Solute potential can be calculated using Ψs=-iCRT where i is ionization constant, C is molar concentration, R= (pressure constant), and T is temperature in Kelvin (273 + C)
Conducting the lab:
Diffusion & Osmosis A laboratory assistant prepared solutions of 0.8 M, 0.6 M, 0.4 M, and 0.2 M sucrose, but forgot to label them. After realizing the error, the assistant randomly labeled the flasks containing these four unknown solutions as flask A, flask B, flask C, and flask D. Design an experiment using a potato given that the molarity of a potato is 0.28.
No Distance Cell to cell contact (APC to Helper T) Short Distance Local regulator (Neurotransmitter between two neurons Long Distance Hormone (Thyroid gland releases T3 and T4)
Investigation 13: Enzyme Catalysis What did we do?
Lab 13: Enzyme Catalysis Description measured factors affecting enzyme activity H 2 O 2 H 2 O + O 2 measured rate of O 2 production catalase

Investigation 7: Mitosis & Meiosis -What are the similarities and differences?
Investigation 7: Mitosis I PMAT
Lab 7: Mitosis Description Examine onion root tip slides of group treated with lectins (mitogens) vs. control group Grow onion root tips in water with lectin vs. water without lectin exam slides of onion root tips count number of cells in each stage to determine relative time spent in each stage in contol group vs. experimental group
Run chi-square test by first getting expected by finding percentages of Interphase cells and mitosis cells in the control and then multiply those percentages by total number of cells in the treated group. TipNumber of Cells-Control MitosisInterphaseTotal TipNumber of Cells-Treated MitosisInterphaseTotal How many degrees of freedom? If X 2 value is greater than critical value we reject the null hypothesis and conclude lectins do effect the cell cycle
Lab 7: Cancer Concepts Hela Cells- Taken from Henrietta Lacks cervical tumors in the An immortal cell line that provided cells for many types of research for many decades. These cells were taken without permission of Henrietta or the family Philadelphia Chromosome- a segment of chromosome 9 exchanged with a segment of chromosome 22. This translocation resulted in a gene that codes for a protein that greatly accelerates the cell cycle.
Control of the Cell Cycle Protein kinases (enzymes that activate other proteins by phosphorylation), Cdks in this case, remain at a constant level Cyclins build up The two combine to form MPF, maturation promoting factor, which pushes the cell into the M phase
Stop and Go-Internal and External Signals Nutrient factors in medium Growth factors- local regulators,proteins, that initiate the cell communication that results in cyclins being produced. Cell communication from nearby cells is termed paracrine signaling Density dependent inhibition Anchorage dependence
Lab 7: Meiosis meiosis meiosis 1 separate homologous pairs meiosis 2 separate sister chromatids crossing over in prophase 1 further genes are from each other the greater number of crossovers
Lab 7: Meiosis Description crossing over in meiosis farther gene is from centromere the greater number of crossovers observed crossing over in fungus, Sordaria arrangement of ascospores

Conducting the lab:
Lab 5: Photosynthesis A controlled experiment was conducted to analyze the effects of darkness and boiling on the photosynthetic rate of incubated chloroplast suspensions. The dye reduction technique was used. Each chloroplast suspension was mixed with DPIP, an electron acceptor that changes from blue to clear when it is reduced. Each sample was placed individually in a spectrophotometer and the percent transmittance was recorded. The three samples used were prepared as follows. Sample 1 —chloroplast suspension + DPIP Sample 2 —chloroplast suspension surrounded by foil wrap to provide a dark environment + DPIP Sample 3 —chloroplast suspension that has been boiled + DPIP Data are given in the table on the next page. a.Construct and label a graph showing the results for the three samples. b.Identify and explain the control or controls for this experiment. c.The differences in the curves of the graphed data indicate that there were differences in the number of electrons produced in the three samples during the experiment. Discuss how electrons are generated in photosynthesis and why the three samples gave different transmittance results.

Lab 11: Transpiration
Description test the effects of environmental factors on rate of transpiration temperature humidity air flow (wind) light intensity
Lab 11: Transpiration A group of students designed an experiment to measure transpiration rates in a particular species of herbaceous plant. Plants were divided into four groups and were exposed to the following conditions. Group I:Room conditions (light, low humidity, 20°C, little air movement.) Group II:Room conditions with increased humidity. Group III:Room conditions with increased air movement (fan) Group IV:Room conditions with additional light The cumulative water loss due to transpiration of water from each plant was measured at 10-minute intervals for 30 minutes. Water loss was expressed as milliliters of water per square centimeter of leaf surface area. The data for all plants in Group I (room conditions) were averaged. The average cumulative water loss by the plants in Group I is presented in the table below. 1.Construct and label a graph using the data for Group I.
