What is an important part of the structure of a cell membrane? a phospholipid layer a phospholipid bilayer a protein layer a protein bilayer Endocytosis is: the process by which the cell takes up a substance by surrounding it with membrane the process by which the cell takes up a substance by osmosis the process by which the cell takes up a substance by diffusion a disease of single celled animals In the cell cycle, the interphase is: a passive phase between two active phases an active phase during which DNA replication and many other processes occur a period when mitosis occurs a period when cytokinesis occurs. Replicated DNA molecules (chromosomes) are moved to opposite ends of the cell by: diffusion osmosis the nucleus spindle fibres

It will form two phospholipid monolayers. B. It will become electrically charged. C. It will partially dissolve. D. It will form vesicles.

Paper 2: Section A: Short Structured (19 marks) Instructions Number each question clearly. Leave at least two lines between each question. Short concise bullet point answers are best. 1. According to cell theory all cells arise from pre-existing cells. The following diagram shows the cell cycle of a eukaryotic (body) cell of a diploid organism.


Define the term diploid. (1) two sets of chromosomes / each chromosome represented twice; pairs of homologous chromosomes; Do not accept haploid number, having 46 chromosomes, 2n Identify the parts of the cell cycle labelled A and B. (1)


Both A and B must be correctly identified for [1]. A: interphase / G1, S, G2; B: mitosis / phases of mitosis;
(c) State three activities that occur during part A of the cell cycle. (3)

Any three of the following [1] each. protein synthesis / translation DNA replication / chromosome replication; cell growth / increase in cell volume; organelle doubling; microtubule formation; respiration / glycolysis; increase energy stores; transcription / mRNA production; Accept first three answers only.
(d) Outline the differences in cytokinesis in animal and plant cells. (2) *OLD question, has been removed from syllabus animal cells: pinching of cell membrane / form cleavage furrow; centrioles; plant cells: cell plate formation;

cell wall built (during cytokinesis); (e) Explain the significance of complementary base pairing in relation to the cell cycle (3) "A" part of cycle / interphase involves DNA synthesis replication of DNA requires complementary base pairing / A-T, G-C; produces two identical copies of DNA / sister chromatids; sister chromatids split at anaphase; each new cell gets a copy of each DNA molecule / genetically identical wrong base pairing causes mutations; mutations can lead to cancer (by uncontrolled cell division) (a) Distinguish between diffusion and osmosis. (1) Must have both for [1]. diffusion is the movement of molecules from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration; osmosis is the diffusion of water across a partially permeable membrane; (b) Explain how the properties of phospholipids help to maintain the structure of the cell surface membrane. (2) hydrophillic head groups point outward; hydrophobic tails form a lipid bilayer; forms a (phospholipid) bilayer; ions and polar molecules cannot pass through hydrophobic barrier; helps the cell maintain internal concentration and exclude other molecules; (a) List the functions of membrane proteins. (4) h hormone binding sites; e enzymes; e electron carriers; c channels for (passive) transport; ( (pumps) for active transport; c cell to cell recognition; receptors for neurotransmitters; (b) Potassium can move across the membrane by passive or active transport. Distinguish between active transport and facilitated diffusion of ions. (2) active transport requires energy, facilitated diffusion does not; a active transport moves substances against a concentration gradient,facilitated diffusion cannot; Paper 2: Section B: Extended Questions (10 marks) Instructions Number each question clearly. Leave at least five lines between each question. 1. Draw diagrams to show the four stages of mitosis in an animal cell with four chromosomes.(5) prophase showing spindle fibres; prophase showing condensed chromatin;
