What should we know for the final?

Postby Jessica Dharmawan 1G » Fri Dec 07, 2018 10:53 pm

Are there any specific biological examples that we need to know for the final? In terms of structure, function, etc.

I definitely think we should know cisplatin! It is the well known chemotherapy drug that forms coordination compounds with DNA to stop cell division. The two chlorides are on one side and can bond with the guanines in two separate locations to effectively stop uncontrolled division.

I agree with knowing about cisplatin especially because it was an example on the churro practice exam.

Knowing about myoglobin/hemoglobin and the heme complex is probably a good idea as it was also on the Churro practice exam.

Without myoglobin, is hemoglobin square planer about Fe?

I think it is important to know about cisplatin, myoglobin, and hemoglobin for the final.

Isn't hemoglobin just 4 myoglobin-like molecules joined together? It should have the same shape I believe?

Yea! Myoglobin is a cytoplasmic protein that binds oxygen on a heme group. It harbors only one heme group, whereas hemoglobin has four.
