Unformatted text preview: depends on how well they explain it. (3pts) The lifespan of the mRNA is short so translation of the subunit occurs but the mRNA starts degrading before enough can be made (2pts) The difference can be explained because the toxin is in a 1:5 ratio so the function of is much more necessary than the function of (2pts) The ratio of the subunits is 1:5 because it takes 5 subunits and 1 to create the toxin (2pts) A combination of mentioning that has more active binding sites and this somehow relates to the secondary strucure of mRNA and more/less activity. They fail to mention if they are talking about transcription/translation and if they mean ribosome binding sites. (0pt) Focusing primarily on trancription of the lac operon and how it relates to cholera in a way I cant understand. . Some also say that the subunit IS lacI and the IS lacy. I dont know what they are getting at...
