BIOG 001 Practice Exam II for BioG 101 28 October 2007 Most of the questions on this exam are drawn from prelims given in BioG 101 in previous years, but it is unlikely that any of these exact questions will appear on this year’s exam. Use this practice test as a way of determining what subject areas you need to review further as you prepare for the exam, and as a rough guide to the types of questions and level of difficulty that you can expect. – LG 1. In the digestion of proteins, the enzyme elastase cuts the polypeptide on the carboxyl side of the amino acid alanine, while the enzyme trypsin cuts on the carboxyl side of either lysine or arginine. Why? a. The shape of the active site for the two enzymes is different. b. Trypsin is a protein but elastase is not. c. One reaction is endergonic but the other is exergonic. d. Only the hydrolysis of the peptide bond of lysine or arginine requires water e. The delta G for the two reactions is different. 2. For the metabolic reaction A + B  C + D, Δ G = -1. You can conclude that: 3. Which of the following is NOT a characteristic of a typical metabolic pathway in a cell? 4. Of the first four answer choices, which, if any, does not depend on protein conformational changes? 5. In considering the coupling of energy derived from ATP hydrolysis to an endergonic enzymatic reaction, which of the following is the most likely mechanistic description of this coupling? a. ATP binds at a regulatory (allosteric site) on the enzyme and puts the enzyme in a more active conformation. b. ATP binds at one active site on the enzyme and the substrates bind at another. Hydrolysis of ATP induces a conformational change in the enzyme that provides the energy for the endergonic reaction at the active site where the substrate is bound. c. ADP and inorganic phosphate bind to the enzyme at one site and the substrate at another. The hydrolysis of ADP and inorganic phosphate to form ATP provides the energy for the endergonic reaction of the substrate. d. All of the above are possible mechanisms that can account for the coupling of the exergonic hydrolysis of ATP to the endergonic reaction of the substrate.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
