Of the following, choose those that are accurate concerning the general concepts of chapters 5 and 6
A) quality studying daily is the best method to have accurate recall on the exams
B) it is a great idea to study all of the questions in the PPTs, the study questions in the textbook, and any questions prompted in the textbook readings
C) sharing questions, answers and ideas in the study lounge is a bad idea
D) since the exams are cumulative it is pointless to continue to study previous chapter study questions and ppt review questions
E) it is a great idea to study the homework reviews thoroughly, knowing why a correct answer is correct, and why an incorrect answer is incorrect
Points Earned:
1.0/1.0

2.
Of the following options choose those that are accurate concerning the topic of antigens and antibodies
A) they are unimportant factors concerning blood transfusions
B) in gene therapy for cancer, the new gene spliced in will generate a protein (tumor antigen) which the immune system will use to identify/target the cancerous cells in the patient's body
C) antibodies of the donor are what cause coagulation in the case of a botched (incorrect) blood transfusion
D) antigens are surface protein markers on all cells (including bacteria) which allow the immune cells to determine self from non-self
E) antibodies locate foreign (bad) antigens, tagging them for destruction
Points Earned:
0.7/1.0

3.
Of the following options choose those that are accurate concerning the topic of protein synthesis
A) protein synthesis is not a metabolic process
B) protein synthesis is one of the processes comprising the metabolic rate of the body
C) transcription and translation are 2 processes of protein synthesis
D) helicase, RNA polymerase, and ligase are involved in protein synthesis
E) if pH and, or temperature was out of the homeostatic threshold, protein synthesis would not be effected
Points Earned:
1.0/1.0

4.
Of the following options mark those that are accurate concerning the topic of cancer
A) G2 checkpoint of interphase is the most crucial cancer checkpoint of the cell cycle
B) benign means bad
C) metastasizing = moving; metastasis = moved
D) the p53 gene would increase apoptosis and increase mitosis
E) the suffix -oma means tumor
Points Earned:
0.5/1.0

5.
Of the following options mark those that are accurate concerning the topic of meiosis
A) the gonads only undergo meiosis not mitosis
B) S phase doesn't have to take place before meiosis
C) meiosis takes place in the gonads
D) cancer is due to mistakes in meiosis
E) nondisjunction is an issue that can take place during meiosis causing an aneuploidy
Points Earned:
0.5/1.0

6.
Of the following options mark those that are accurate concerning the topic of DNA replication
A) ligase unzips the double helix so that it can be copied/replicated
B) DNA polymerase adds nucleotides to the parent DNA strand (building the daughter copied strand of DNA)
C) A goes with T, and G goes with C
D) helicase links the double helix back together
E) DNA replication takes place in the nucleus where the DNA resides

Feedback: Remember to look up and study why the correct options are correct and the incorrect options are incorrect

7.
Of the following options mark those that are accurate concerning the topic of mitosis
A) the copy of a chromosome that is synthesized during S phase, is called a chromatid
B) during metaphase the centriole spindle attaches at the centromere to pull apart the chromosome from its chromatid
C) healthy humans have 23 chromosomes
D) telophase is when the chromosomes are at the end - furthest point, in each of their potentially new cells (not yet divided)
E) in mitosis it is expected that the division will lead to…
