  7. If you reduce the activity of golgi bodies in a cell, what would you predict to be the outcome? 1) extra proteins will be added to the cell membrane 2) more vesicles will form for transport 3) there will be fewer proteins targeted for transport to the cell membrane 4) fewer ribosomes will be present in the cytoplasm
    Answer: 3
  8. What energetic role do protons play in both mitochondria and chloroplasts? 1) they are used to produce NAD+ 2) they are used to establish an electrochemical gradient 3) they are used to split water 4) they are used to transport electrons
    Answer: 2 ( they produce NADH-- not NAD+)

  11. ribosomes are responsible for mRNA ____________
  12. a cell is broken down into a mass of cell organelles; this is termed a _____
  13. 50 microns is equal to ... 1) 0.5 mm 2) 0.05 mm 3) 0.005 mm 4) 0.0005 mm
    Answer: 2
  14. ________ is the ability to tell two points apart
  15. an example of reflected light in science is the ________ microscope
  16. Why does SEM microscopy have improved resolution?
    they emit short electron wavelengths
  17. SEM microscopes show ______ detail, while transmission electron microscopes show ______
    surface; inside
  18. for _________ electron microscopes, the sample must be thin and the light wavelengths must pass through the sample
  19. You want to view surface details in a cell that is 10 microns in diameter. Which technique would give you the most detail? 1) dissecting microscopy 2) SEM 3) transmission electron microscopy 4) They can be seen with the naked eye
    Answer: SEM (you want to see surface detail)
  20. in ________ microscopy, the specimen itself IS the light source.
  21. in epifluoresence microscopy, GFP is hooked onto a gene of interest. It is then spread through _________ to allow observation
    transduction > translation > and then expression!
  22. Why is DNA considered antiparallel?
    each strand runs in oppsite directions
  23. Why are the ends of DNA named 3' or 5'?
    carbon functional groups are connected to the phosphate backbone. Each end has separate # of Carbon linked (either 3 or 5)
  24. A:T interactions have ____ H bonds while G:C interactions require ____ H bonds
    2; 3
  25. during gel electrophoresis, to which electrode does DNA migrate (+ or -)? Why?
    DNA migrates to the + electrode... because DNA is negatively charged (opposites attract)
  26. electron scanning and transmission microscopy have ______ resolution because accelerated electrons have a _____ wavelength compared to visible light.
    HIGH; shorter
  27. Light used to excite a fluorescent protein has ___ energy compared to the emitted light.
  28. _______ is a polymer of nucleotides
  29. ____________ consist of a nucleobase, a sugar, and a phosphate group
  30. The two types of nucleobases are _______________ and _______________
    purines and pyrimidines
  31. _______ nucleobase consists of Adenine and Guanine (AG). They have two carbon-ring structures as opposed to one.
  32. __________ nucleobases consist of Cytosine, Uracil, and Thymine (CUT). They have one carbon-ring structures as opposed to two
  33. During correct DNA base pairing, nucleobases base-pair in a specific pattern: __________:_________
    always pyrimidine: purine
  34. which strand is held most tightly to its complimentary strand? 1) AAATTT 2) AAACCC 3) GGAAAA 4) GGGCCC
    Answer: 4 (GGGCCC has more H bonds than AAATTT)
  35. the most common DNA in nature is the right handed __ -DNA
  36. DNA is a double helix because........
    each strand is twisting itself, while it also twists around its complimentary strand
  37. the ______ groove is the site for protein association
    major (it has room for more access)
  38. _-DNA is a left-handed double helix
  39. (enzymes) nucleases cut DNA... endonucleases cut DNA ___________, separating sticky and blunt
    within the strand
  40. Which is an example of a possible restriction site? 1) GGTACC 2) GATTAG 3) TTTCCC 4) AATGG
    Answer: 1 (it is the SAME forwards AS IT IS BACKWARDS)

  42. (enzyme) ___________ have both endonuclease and ligase activity-- they cut one strand to release tension and then rejoin the strand
  43. (enzyme) uses ATP to break hydrogen bonds between nucleobases... _____ essentially unwinds the DNA down the middle
