Cell Biology (BIO 320), Fall 2009, Dr. Bushart Supplemental Homework for Midterm #4 Topic short-list : Since it’s the last midterm, these are the topics that are being covered by actual questions on the exam. Platelets Muscle contraction General motor protein properties Kinesins and dyneins Cytokinesis and RhoA Apoptosis Caspases Extrinsic/intrinsic pathways Pro and anti-apoptotic factors Junctions Cadherins Integrins Gap junctions ECM Cell-surface binding proteins Protein components General signaling Practice activities : 1. Review homework questions. a. Homework #7: 4 b. Homework #8: 4a, 4d, c. Homework #9: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 Extra questions 1.
