they are imported into the nucleus after synthesis, and are exported from the nucleus after assembly with ribosomal RNA.trueMany nuclear import and export receptors are members of the same protein family.trueMost nuclear import receptors contain unstructured domains with FG-repeats.falseAdaptor proteins that simultaneously bind to nuclear localization signals and to importins are required for the import of some nuclear cargo proteins.trueRan is mostly found in its GTP-bound form in the nucleus.trueMitochondrial proteins should fold natively twice: once in the cytosol and once inside the organelle.falseβ-barrel proteins that are abundant in the mitochondrial outer membrane are imported from the cytosol independently of the TOM complex.falseSignal sequences that target precursor proteins to the mitochondrial matrix form an α- helix in which positively charged residues cluster near its N-terminus, while uncharged or hydrophobic residues cluster near the other side.falseAt least two signal sequences are required to direct proteins to the mitochondrial matrix.falseIncorporation of new Tom40 in the outer membrane requires preexisting Tom40 in that membrane.trueFormation of new TOM complexes is dependent on the SAM complex.trueTom40 is partially translocated through the outer membrane and is then transferred in the plane of the membrane to fold into its native conformation.falseTom40 is translocated through the inner membrane as a precursor.falseATP and GTP hydrolysis drive translocation into the organelle.chloroplastsThe organelle has an extra compartment that requires extra signal sequences for protein targeting.chloroplastsTransport through the double membrane is driven in part by an H+ gradient across the inner membrane.mitochondriaImported precursor proteins have amphiphilic N-terminal signal sequences that are usually removed after use.bothHsp70 family chaperones inside the organelle assist in protein translocation during import.bothAll peroxisomal proteins are encoded in the nucleus.trueSome peroxisomal proteins are synthesized by ribosomestrueAll peroxisomal proteins reach the organelle after their synthesis is completed.truePeroxisomal proteins have to be unfolded before import.falseIt mostly has a tubular appearance.smooth ERIt contains the transitional ER.smooth ERIt is coated by ribosomes.rough ERIt can be specialized for functions such as detoxification and lipid metabolism.smooth ERSarcoplasmic reticulum in muscle cells is one of its specialized forms.smooth ERA single-pass transmembrane protein that has one N-terminal signal sequence and one internal stop-transfer signalc-terminusA single-pass transmembrane protein that has one internal signal sequence that is preceded by a patch of positively charged residuesn-terminusAn ER tail-anchored proteinn-terminusN-linked glycosylation can be carried out co-translationally, possibly at multiple asparagine residues on the same protein molecule.trueN-linked glycosylation is a gradual process, with step-by-step addition and trimming events that commence with the addition of N-acetylglucosamine to an asparagine side chain.falseMost proteins synthesized in the rough ER are N-glycosylated, and some of them require this modification for their correct folding.trueOnce a protein is properly folded in the ER, its attached oligosaccharides are quickly removed by an N-glycanase, although it may be glycosylated again later.falseAssembly of GlcNAc oligosaccharides on dolichol phosphatecystolic sideSynthesis of phosphatidylcholinecystolic sideSynthesis of sphingomyelingolgiUbiquitylation of misfolded ER proteincystolic sideSynthesis of phosphatidic acidcystolic side
