Therefore, this practice exam may contain a limited number of questions that you would not be expected to answer in the actual final. This exam has a total of 160 points READ THE QUESTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU ANSWER. SHOW ALL WORK TO GET FULL CREDIT. 1.

TAQ DNA Polymerase 21. spoofreading repair 2. We discussed two major classes of cancer mutations that are being studied. What are these two classes and how do they fit into the idea of Mendelian idea of dominant and recessive? Make sure to state what the dominant or recessive nature of the mutation suggests about the genes original function. Give one example of each and state which of the three cancer preventing biological processes that your example affects (16 points). Mutation Class 1 – One type of cancer mutation is the tumor suppressor mutation. This mutation is typically recessive suggesting that the wildtype copy functions to suppress cancerous cells . Examples would include Rb or p53, both of which block the cell cycle. In addition, p53 can trigger apoptosis. 1 Name: ______________________________ ID: _______________________________ Mutation Class 2 – The second major class of cancer mutation is the oncogenic mutation . This is a dominant gain-of-function mutation that leads to cancerous growth. Because it is dominant, it is not possible to deduce the wildtype function of these genes. Examples would be the growth factor receptor or BCR2 that function to block apoptosis....
