BIS2A. Study questions 9 1. A pathogen of bees produces a protein that enters the cell of the host, migrates further into mitochondria and lodges itself in the inner membrane of the mitochondrion. The protein forms a channel that allows H+ to move across the membrane according to the proton gradi- ent. Using your knowledge of cellular processes predict the effects caused by this protein in the short and longer range. 2. Suppose that a bee is flying in a anaerobic mode when this protein is made and exerts its ef- fects. What will happen in the very short range? 3. A pathogen of cabbage produces a protein that enters the cell of the host, migrates further

The protein forms a channel that allows H+ to move across the membrane according to the proton gradi-ent. Using your knowledge of cellular processes predict the effects caused by this protein in the shrot and longer range. 4. Mistletoe is a parasitic plant growing on trees. It is very common in Davis. Mistletoe biology resembles that of any plant. In addition, its roots enter the vascular systems of the host (the plant "arteries" and "veins") from which they extract sugar, nutrients and water. Predict the effect of the pathogen in Q. 3 on the mistletoe....
