Biol110-2007-Final Exam Name ____________ ______________ Exam #____ Question #1: Cyclin dependent kinases and the cell cycle CDKs modify different target proteins at different times of the cell cycle, yet at least in yeast, one CDK can be used for the entire cell cycle. How does CDK modify targets with specificity at each of the different stages of the cell cycle? (4 pts) How is the irreversible inactivation of CDK activity accomplished precipitously at key steps of the cell cycle? What are the molecular events in this mechanism? (5 pts) In the wee1 yeast mutant, cells divide prematurely and the resulting cells are small. What regulatory aspect of the cell cycle machinery is not balanced in this mutant? (4 pts)
