For each of the following definitions, give the appropriate term and spell it correctly
- Protein catalysts that speed the rate of chemical reactions.
- The material(s) acted upon and changed by the catalyst in question 1.
- The phenomenon in which a specific genotype(s) at one locus can prevent the phenotypic manifestation of a genotype (s) at one or more other loci.
- Adjective describing a locus whose phenotypic manifestation is suppressed by the phenomenon in question 3.
- A phenomenon wherein a single gene has more than one phenotypic effect.
- A collection of phenotypic effects that collectively defines a disease, genetic or otherwise.
