5 Matching questions

  1. What is the limit dextran?
  2. What does alpha 1,6 glucosidase do?
  3. What enzymes are involved in Glycogen degradation?
  4. What is glycogen?
  5. What is Uridine Diphosphate?
  1. a Alpha 1,6 glucosiase hydrolyzes the alpha 1,6 glucosidic bond to release a free glucose molecule
  2. b The 4th glucose residue from the branch glucose
  3. c Glycogen phosphorylase, Transferase, alpha 1,6 glucosidase, phosphoglucomutase
  4. d A very large, branched polymer of glucose residues. Most of the glucose residues are linked by alpha 1,4 glycosidic bonds. branches about every 10th residue are linked by alpha 1,6 glycosidic bonds
  5. e Uridine diphosphate is a nucleotide composed of uracil, ribose and pyrophosphate

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. PPi+ H2O=> 2Pi
  2. When glucose residues are removed to the "limit dextran" which is the 4th glucose residue from the branch glucose
  3. Glycogen synthesis involves transfer of glucose from UDP-glucose to a growing chain
  4. Glucose-1-phosphate +UTP =>UDP-glucose + PPi
  5. Must be at least 4 residues away from other branches. Links are alpha 1,6 glycosidic bond

5 True/False questions

  1. What are the properties of Glycogen synthase?A glycosyl unit from UDP glucose is transferred to the hydroxyl group at the C4 of the terminal glucose residue forming a alpha 1,4 glycosidic bond. Requires a glycogen molecule that is a minimum of 4 residues to which a glycosyl will be added

          

  2. How is UDP-glucose formed?UDP-glucose is synthesized from Uridine triphosphate and glucose-1-phosphate via the enzyme UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase

          

  3. What is phosphoglucomutase?Phosphoglucomutase is a phospho enzyme and converts Glucose 1 phosphate to glucose 6 phosphate for further metabolism

          

  4. What is glycogenin?A very large, branched polymer of glucose residues. Most of the glucose residues are linked by alpha 1,4 glycosidic bonds. branches about every 10th residue are linked by alpha 1,6 glycosidic bonds

          

  5. What enzyme catalyzes the transfer of glucose from UDP-glucose to a growing chain?Glycogen synthase catalyzes transfer of glucose from UDP-glucose to a growing chain
