Biochemistry 441 1st Hour Exam Feb. 7, 2007 Name_______________________________ Student #________________ The exam has five pages, each worth 20 points. [The numbers in square brackets are the points for the individual questions.] 1. Fill in the blanks: (A) Leptin inhibits fatty acid biosynthesis by triggering a process that promotes phosphorylation of acetylCoA carboxylase (or biotin carboxylase-transacetylase ) [1]. (B) Aspirin inhibits both isozymes of cyclooxygenase [1]. (C) Glucagon inhibits synthesis of cholesterol by promoting phosphorylation of HMGCoA reductase [1], which catalyzes the following reaction [draw the structures of the metabolite reactant(s) and product(s) and give the names and stoichiometry of any coenzyme reactant(s) and product(s)]: _________________________________ [4] _____________________________________ [4] Cholesterol also controls this reaction by decreasing expression (or transcription ) of the gene for HMGCoA reductase [1] and by promoting proteolysis of the enzyme [1]. (D) Homocysteinemia can result from a dietary deficiency of either vitamin B12 [1] or folic acid (or folate ) [1]. (E) The fatty acyl chain is attached to the ACP (or acylcarrier protein ) [1] domain in most of the steps catalyzed by the mammalian fatty-acid synthase. It transfers to a cysteine [1] residue in the β -ketoacylsynthase [1] domain for the chain-elongation step. (F) In E. coli , glutamine synthetase is regulated partly by covalent attachment of a/an adenylyl [1] group to a tyrosine [1] residue. p. 1 p. 2 p. 3 p. 4 p. 5 Total CO-SCoA CH 2 CH 3 CO 2 - CH 2 HO C CH 2 OH CH 2 CH 3 HO C CO 2 - CH 2 + 2 NADPH + 2H + + 2 NADP + + CoASH
