Lipid bilayers made up of phospholipids with unsaturated hydrocarbon tails (i.e., tails with cis -double bonds) are more fluid than lipid bilayers made up of phospholipids with saturated hydrocarbon tails. ( ) 2. The ribosome is made up of both RNA and protein, but RNA is used to catalyze peptide bond formation. ( ) 3. The protein translocation channel (also called Sec61) is located on the smooth ER. ( ) 4. Channels that carry out passive transport must couple to an energetically favorable reaction such as Na + transport or ATP hydrolysis. ( ) 5. The amplitude of an action potential depends on the strength of the depolarizing stimulus: the stronger the stimulus, the larger the action potential. ( ) 6. Voltage-gated Na + channels and K + leak channels both contribute to the amplitude of the action potential. ( ) 7. Microtubule polymerization depends on both the concentration of unpolymerized α-β tubulin heterodimer and the concentration of microtubule polymer. ( ) 8. During mitosis, kinesins (which are plus end motor proteins) as well as dyneins (which are minus end motor proteins) are important for the function of the mitotic spindle. ( ) 9.
