Which event occurs in the fluid portion of the cytoplasm of a cell undergoing glucose metabolism?
an agent that closely mimics the structure of glucose but is not capable of being metabolized
Which kind of metabolic poison would interfere with glycolysis?
During glycolysis, two ATP molecules are "spent" in order to convert glucose to the highly reactive molecule:
increase the rate of glycolysis-based reactions
For bacteria to continue growing rapidly when they shift from an aerobic environment to an anaerobic environment, they must:
matrix and inner membrane
Which parts of the mitochondria are directly involved in the synthesis of ATP during chemiosmosis?
the G1 phase of interphase
During which phase of the eukaryotic cell cycle do growth and nutrient acquisition occur?
Which of the following is the correct sequence of stages in mitotic cell division?
When the two gametes that fuse to form a zygote contain different alleles of a given gene, the offspring is:
75% yellow:25% green
If we cross two pea plants, each heterozygous for yellow seed colour genes, the expected ratio of yellow:green among the offspring will be:
Round pea shape is dominant over wrinkled pea shape. If a round pea has a wrinkled parent, the round pea is:
members of a pair of alleles move away from each other during gamete formation
Mendel's law of segregation states that:
all the offspring had purple flowers
When Mendel used true-breeding white flowers and true-breeding purple flowers as the parental generation, what were the results?
true-breeding green-seeded plants
Yellow-seeded pea plants may be homozygous or heterozygous. To find out which, we can cross plants with:
Crossing spherical-seeded pea plants with dented-seeded pea plants resulted in progeny that all had spherical seeds. This indicates that the dented seed trait is:
In garden peas, the allele for tall plants is dominant over the allele for short plants. Imagine that a true-breeding tall plant is crossed with a short plant. Then one of their offspring is test crossed. Out of 20 offspring resulting from the test cross, about how many should be tall?
In crossing a homozygous recessive with a heterozygote, what is the chance of getting a homozygous recessive phenotype in the F1 generation?
The sequence of subunits in the DNA "backbone" is:
deoxyribose linked to phosphate
In the comparison of a DNA molecule to a twisted ladder, the uprights of the ladder are:
A + G = T + C in amount
Which of the following is NOT true according to Chargaff's base pairing rule?
sequence of bases
It became apparent to Watson and Crick after completing their model that a DNA molecule could carry a vast amount of hereditary information in its:
Regarding the structure of DNA, which joins adenine and thymine and also guanine and cytosine?
In sequence of bases in a section of DNA is TAGGCTAA, what is the corresponding sequence of bases in mRNA?
