Given only the information shown here, which of the following statements is true? i) ethyl acetate + H 2 O ethanol + acetic acid Δ G ° = -19.7 kJ/mol ii) glucose + P i glucose-6-phosphate + H 2 O Δ G ° = 13.8 kJ/mol a) Reaction i) is faster than reaction ii). b) Reaction ii) is faster than reaction i). c) Neither reaction is spontaneous. d) At equilibrium, reaction i) will have more products than reaction ii). e) At equilibrium, reaction ii) will have more products than reaction i). 2. Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to acidosis. Which component of the blood buffering system could be administered as treatment for acidosis? a) HCO 3 - b) CO 2 c) H 2 CO 3 d) OH - e) Tris buffer 3. Sequencing of a novel peptide reveals the following: Ala-Cys a -Gly-Phe-Ser-Cys b -Met-Thr-Cys c -Gln The peptide contains one disulfide bond and one free Cys residue. Treatment of the intact peptide (containing its disulfide bond) by either cyanogen bromide or chymotrypsin does not break the peptide into two fragments. Where is the disulfide linkage? a) between Cys a and Cys b b) between Cys a and Cys c c) between Cys b and Cys c d) Between Cys a and Met e) It is impossible to tell from this information
