In certain kinds of muscle cells, calcium ions are stored in the ________.
enzymes involved in cell metabolism
Caveolae are closely associated with all of the following except . . .
enzymes involved in cell metabolism
enzymes involved in cell regulation
lipid rafts
receptors for hormones
The nucleotide sequence in a tRNA anticodon is an exact copy of the DNA triplet that coded for it except that uracil is substituted for thymine.
Which statement is the most correct regarding transcription/translation?
The nucleotide sequence in a tRNA anticodon is an exact copy of the DNA triplet that coded for it.
The nucleotide sequence in a tRNA anticodon is an exact copy of the DNA triplet that coded for it except that uracil is substituted for thymine.
The nucleotide sequence in a mRNA codon is an exact copy of the DNA triplet that coded for it except that uracil is substituted for thymine.
The nucleotide sequence in a mRNA codon is an exact copy of the DNA triplet that coded for it.
proteins
Phosphates are abundant in the intracellular fluid. What is the other major intracellular anion?
Na+ is pumped out of the cell, creating a lower Na+ concentration inside the cell.
The Na+-K+ ATPase pump is important for secondary active transport of other solutes. How does this pump work to bring in other solutes?
Water will move to the right side of the beaker because the right side is hypertonic compared to the left side.
If more solute particles are added to the right side of a beaker with a selectively permeable membrane (thus the particles cannot move to the left side), which way will the water in the beaker move, and why will it move in that direction?
repressor genes
Which of the following does not serve as a signal for cell division?
loss of contact inhibition
repressor genes
shrinking surface-to-volume ratio
joining of cyclins and Cdks
In primary active transport, the transport protein gets phosphorylated; in secondary active transport, the transport protein is not phosphorylated.
What is the difference between primary and secondary active transport?
Glucose is a hydrophilic molecule.
Why are protein channels and carriers required for the movement of glucose into or out of the cell?
G1
centrioles begin to replicate in G1, S, or G2?
G1
cellular growth and biosynthesis of organelles and proteins for various functions occurs in G1, S, or G2?
S
Chromosome replication occurs in G1, S, or G2?
S
Centrosome replication occurs in G1, S, or G2?
G2
Growth and biosynthesis of products to be used in mitosis occurs in G1, S, or G2?
Cytokinesis usually begins in anaphase.
Which is true regarding cytokinesis?
Cytokinesis usually begins in anaphase.
Cytokinesis always begins and ends in telophase.
The pinching in of the cytoplasm and cleavage furrow begins and ends after telophase is totally finished.
The cytokinesis cleavage furrow is made by the mitosis spindle.
junctions among epithelial cells lining the digestive tract
Which of the following describes tight junctions?
cell junctions in areas that are subjected to great mechanical stress, such as the skin and heart muscles
junctions where cells are held together by cadherins
junctions within electrically excitable tissues, such as the heart and smooth muscle
junctions among epithelial cells lining the digestive tract
DNA polymerase
what builds new strands of DNA?
The leading strand is built continuously, and the lagging strand is built in pieces.
Which statement best describes strand characteristics as it relates to DNA replication?
The leading and lagging strands are both built continuously.
The lagging strand is built continuously, and the leading strand is built in pieces.
The leading and lagging strands are both built in fragments.
The leading strand is built continuously, and the lagging strand is built in pieces.
DNA ligase
Which protein joins together the Okazaki fragments of DNA in the lagging strand?
DNA ligase adds nucleotides to the lagging strand
Which statement about DNA replication is FALSE?
The two strands of original or parental DNA are separated during DNA replication.
The lagging strand is made of a series of fragments that must be joined together to make a continuous strand.
DNA polymerase III builds a new strand by adding DNA nucleotides one at a time.
DNA ligase adds nucleotides to the lagging strand.
Because the two strands of original or parental DNA run in opposite directions, the new strands must be made in different ways.
tRNA
The RNA responsible for bringing the amino acids to the ribosome for protein formation is ________.
receptor-mediated endocytosis
What process allows cells to concentrate material that is present only in very small amounts in the extracellular fluid?
0.45% saline
