MIDTERM II 114A Name: KEY ID: Section Number: 1. Fill in the blanks. 10X5=50 pts a. When a 60kDa and a 40kDa protein are subjected to SDS-PAGE electrophoresis, the protein with the highest mobility would be 40 kDa protein. b. Repeated cycles of the technique known as Edman degradation can reveal the complete sequence of a polypeptide containing fewer than about 100 residues. c. The amino acid glycine/proline is rarely found in an α helix. d. The term glycoprotein refers to proteins that have carbohydrate as a part of their structure. e. Oligosaccharides linked to proteins via a nitrogen atom are called N-linked oligosaccharides and are covalently bonded to the amino acid Asn . f. An example of a supersecondary structure is β barrel . g. A structurally independent unit of a protein, that forms a globular cluster and often possesses a specific function, is called a domain . h. An example of an intramolecular interaction that is important in stabilizing protein structure is H-bond/Van der Waal/hydrophobic interaction . i. An example of a disease that results from improper protein folding is Alzheimer’s disease/amyloid disease/prion disease etc. j. The subunit interface in a multisubunit protein largely consists of hydrophobic amino acids.

2. 10 X 5=50 pts Use the following to answer 1-10 below: A) proteoglycan B) hydrophobic C) enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay D) three-dimensional shape E) N-terminal amino acid F) negative charge G) amylopectin H) cation exchange I) glyceraldehyde J) peptidoglycan K) 2-mercaptoethanol L) positive charge M) C-terminus N) anion exchange 1. One of the reasons primary structure is important for a protein is that this determines the D the molecule adopts in aqueous solution. 2. The main component of a bacterial cell wall is a J . 3. The smallest aldose is I. 4. In order for CM to act as a cation exchanger, it must have a F . 5. If antibodies to the protein being assayed are available, a(n) C can be developed. 6. Both α (1 4) and α (1 6) bonds can be found in the plant product G. 7. In order for DEAE to act as an anion exchanger, it must have a L . 8. In H chromatography, a protein mixture must be applied to the column at a low pH so that the proteins will have a net positive charge and bind to the column. 9. In SDS-PAGE electrophoresis, disulfide-linked protein subunits are separated by first reacting them with K . 10. Dansyl chloride can be used to identify the E of a protein.
