False. As temperature decreases, the cell produces more of the unsaturated. The double bonds in the hydrophobic tails create bends/kinks in the tails, preventing compact storage at lower temperatures. This maintains membrane fluidity and membrane fracture. A good example: fish that live in cold water have a higher concentration of unsaturated lipids per cell than fish that live in warmer climates.
Yes!

Go, son.

I'll revive this thread.


How do the different kinds of amino acid side chains affect the 3D shape of the protein?

The sequence of amino acid side chains affects the secondary and tertiary structure by forming hydrogen bonds in different locations of the polypeptide chain, affecting where alpha helices and beta sheets will be formed and where the alpha helices and beta sheets will be attracted to each other

A group of spheres (It's hard to explain its shape) parallel to the Endoplasmic Reticulum, used to bring large pieces of matter in and out of the cell.

Mad Cow Disease is a disease in cows caused by prions. Describe a prion, and how it spreads to other cells in the body.

Sorry if that's not in the rules, I didn't check. :(

A self-replicating protein; all known mammalian-based prions infect mainly the brain and the nervous system and spread to peripheral sites through them.
