BSC 2085 Exam 2 Name_____________________________________________ Date______________ 1. In the cell, there are free and attached ribosomes. In reference to protein synthesis, what would be the consequences of not having any free ribosomes and all the ribosomes in the cell were attached? A. Free ribosomes produce enzymes to be used in the cell, which are used to carry out protein synthesis. If they are not available then the mRNA will travel to the attached ribosomes for the synthesis of the enzymes needed for protein synthesis. B. Free ribosomes synthesize proteins to be used in the cell, which are used throughout the cell. Ribosomes produce enzymes that will conduct the process of protein synthesis. If all the ribosomes were attached then all protein produced by those ribosomes would be transported out of the cell. Therefore, the enzymes needed to carry out protein synthesis will not be available. C. Free ribosomes synthesize proteins to be transported out of the cell, which are used throughout the body. These ribosomes produce enzymes that conduct processes throughout the body and these processes will not occur without the presence of free ribosomes.
2. The patient has been diagnosed with no Golgi apparatus in the cells. Does this present a problem with the diffusion of glucose across the plasma membrane?
