Answers:

12-LETTER WORDS
By mystcmage.

2: This breed of horse used for racing was derived from Arabian stallions
THOROUGHBRED was the intended correct answer, but several players answered quarterhorse. It fits the description, and although the dictionary shows it to be two words, the OED attests quarterhorse appearing in print as a single word. So QUARTERHORSE is good, too.

4: Appropriately, this name for a Platonic solid with 12 pentagonal faces is 12 letters long.
DODECAHEDRON

6: It's the "colorful" state bird of Alabama
YELLOWHAMMER

8: This type of professional would give you a bikini wax, manicure, or pedicure
AESTHETICIAN

10: A word which is used to describe a proud, haughty person, it is derived from the Latin for "eyebrow"
SUPERCILIOUS

"A" IN BIOLOGY
By cmp146. Each correct response will begin with "A".

3: The side chain R group attached to the central carbon differentiates these building blocks of proteins.
AMINO ACIDS

6: Commonly known by a 3-letter abbreviation, this energy currency of the cell is produced through oxidative phosphorylation in the mitochondria.
ATP (ADENOSINE TRIPHOSPHATE)

9: The opposite of catabolism, this process is the combining of small molecules to form complex ones, like sugars into carbohydrates.
ANABOLISM

12: This programmed cell death is named from the Greek for the process of falling leaves.
APOPTOSIS

15: In this phase of mitosis preceding telophase, the chromosomes separate to poles on opposite sides of the cell.
ANAPHASE
