Unformatted text preview: 1. A small molecule that DECREASES the activity of an enzyme by binding to the enzyme and altering the three dimensional structure thereby decreasing substrate binding to the active site is termed a(n): A) alternative activator B) competitive inhibitor C) allosteric inhibitor D) competitive activator E) transition‐state analog 2. Which of the following agents and/or procedures would interfere with or disrupt the primary structure of a protein in solution at pH 7.0? A) Addition of a strong detergent causing protein unfolding B) A large increase in ionic strength of the solution C) Addition of an enzyme which hydrolyzes peptide bonds D) A and B E) A, B and C 3. The graph below describes the reaction coordinates for the conversion of a particular substrate to product. This reaction proceeds very slowly unless the proper enzyme is added to the reaction. The addition of enzyme to this reaction will speed up the reaction by: A) B) C) D) E) increasing the ground state free energy of the substrate decreasing the ground state free energy of the product decreasing the energy difference between the substrate and the product (∆G’o) changing the equilibrium constant lowering the activation energy (∆Gact) 4. An allosteric interaction between a ligand and a protein is one in which: A) two different ligands can bind to the same binding site B) the binding of the ligand to the protein is covalent C) multiple molecules of the same ligand can bind to the same binding site D) the binding of a molecule to its binding site affects the binding of an additional molecule to the same site E) the binding of a molecule to a binding site affects the binding properties of another site on the protein 5. From the following titration curve of aspartic acid 9.82 3.86 2.10 The isoelectric point is: A) 2.10 B) 2.98 C) 3.86 D) 6.84 E) 9.82 At what pH is the following reaction occurring? NH3‐ + OH‐ → NH2‐ + H2O A) 2.10 B) 2.98 C) 3.86 D) 6.84 E) 9.82 ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
