BioSci 1000 exam II – Schwacha page 2 Name__________________________ Multiple choice - Circle the best answer 1. For the following reaction, Δ G' ° = 29.7 kJ/mol. L-Malate + NAD + -> oxaloacetate + NADH + H + The reaction as written (2 pts): A) can never occur in a cell. B) can only occur in a cell if it is coupled to another reaction for which Δ G' ° is positive. C) can only occur in a cell in which NADH is converted to NAD + by electron transport. D) may occur in cells at certain concentrations of substrate and product. E) would always proceed at a very slow rate 2. The standard reduction potentials ( E' °) for the following half reactions are given. α -ketoglutarate + CO 2 + H+ + 2e- + 2H + + 2e -> isocitrate E' ° = -0.38 V NAD + + H + + 2e -> NADH E' ° = –0.32 V If you mixed a-ketoglutarate, isocitrate, NAD + , and NADH 2 together, all at l M concentrations and in the presence of isocitrate dehydrogenase, which of the following would happen initially (2 pts)? A) α -ketoglutarate and isocitrate would become oxidized; NAD + and NADH would become reduced. B) Isocitrate would become oxidized, NAD + would become reduced. C) No reaction would occur because all reactants and products are already at their standard concentrations. D)
