    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  3. What is the structure of rRNA?
    a. double helix
    b. linear
    c. clover leafed shaped
    d. globular
    globular
  4. During DNA replication, _____________ attach to each strand of the uncoiled DNA to keep them separate.
    single strand binding proteins
  5. Topoisomerases are what type of enzymes?
    isomerases
  6. DNA polymerase synthesizes in the ____________ direction.
    5' --- 3'

    *leading strand
  7. During mRNA processing, a 5' cap is added to the 5' end of the mRNA.
    What does this capping provide?
    • Capping provides stability to the mRNA
    • * made up of guanine nucleotide with 2 phosphate
  8. The Poly-A tail is attached the ______ end of the mRNA.
    3' end
  9. What does the poly-A tail mainly composed of?
    Adenine bases -- approx. 200
  10. What does the Poly-A tail do ?
    provides stability to the mRNA and also appears to control the movement of the mRNA across the nuclear envelope.
  11. __________ are sequences that express a code for a polypeptide.
    A. extrons
    b. introns
    extrons
  12. Before the mRNA moves to the cytoplasm, _________________ delete the introns and splice the exons.
    small nuclear ribonucleoproteins or snRNP's
