BIS103-001 (Spring 2007) May 15, 2007 Midterm #2 Student Name _______________________ Instructor: Oliver Fiehn Student ID #__________________ A- group 1. 3 points Mark the incorrect answer on the function of glycogen debranching enzyme in glycogenolysis. A) The debranching enzyme transfers an α (1 4) linked trisaccharide unit from an α (1 6) branch point to the nonreducing end of another branch B) The debranching enzyme produces more α (1 4) linked glucose residues, which are available for phosphorolysis C) The debranching enzyme has a separate active site to hydrolyze the single remaining α (1 6) linked glucose D) The debranching enzyme works as rapid as phosphorylase, thus facilitating seamless release of glucose from glycogen during heavy exercise E) all of the above is correct 2. 3 points Glycogen storage diseases are inherited disorders of glycogen metabolism. For example, von Gierke's Disease is caused by a deficiency of liver glucose-6-phosphatase and results in an enlarged liver and low blood sugar. Mark the correct biochemical explanation for this disease. A) Glucose-6-phosphatase is an important step in UTP-glucose formation. Without that activation of glucose, glycogen balancing is disturbed and the liver increases. B) Glucose-6-phosphatase works in liver mitochondria. Without that enzyme, glucose cannot
