Name: ID#: 1 TRUE OR FALSE (10 points) 1. MAGUKs comprise a family of tyrosine kinases involved in cell surface signaling events. 2. Stimulation of fat cells by insulin leads to the endocytosis of glucose transporters. 3. In eukaryotic organisms the plasma membrane is 5-10 um thick. 4. The inhibitory G protein (Gi) inhibits adenylyl cyclase by regulating ion channels. 5. The positive charge of proteoglycans is due to the presence of glycosaminoglycan chains and allows for binding to growth factors. 6. The structure of both Cadherins and Integrins is calcium-dependent. 7. Integrins can bind to members of the immunoglobulin superfamily, cadherins and extracellular matrix proteins. 8. Selectins are required for recruitment of leukocytes to sites of infection. 9. Type II collagen is present in all cartilages. 10.
