Which of the following is key to mRNA degradation? a. mRNA length b. miRNA c. general transcription factors d. specific transcription factors e. repressible enzymes True (a)/ False (b) 8. Histones bind tightly to DNA because DNA has an overall positive charge and the lysines of histones have a negative charge. 9. The most common form of gene expression control in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes is transcriptional control . 10. Coordinate regulation means that genes with the same control elements are activated by the same signals. QUIZ 12 [11-30-07] KEY: 1a, 2d, 3a, 4b, 5c, 6c, 7b, 8b, 9a, 10a...
