Show Answers:

  1. proteolytic cleavage
    done by proteases, example: removal of methionine after translation
  2. Zymogens
    inactive precursors that are activated by proteolytic cleavage, ex. clotting cascade (serine proteases cleave inactive zymogens)
  3. Clotting cascade (main point)
    To stimulate a thrombin burst-->convert fibrinogen to fibrin-->fibrin cross linkages create clot
  4. Acylation
    When a methionine is removed it is replaced by an acetyl group at the N-terminus (donated by acetyl CoA)
  5. Mryristylation
    Lipid anchors. Myristyl anchors embed themselves in the lipid bilayer; allows a protein that would normally not associate with the lipid bilayer to be attracted to that area
