I, (Name) _________________________________________ have neither received nor given help 5. How many high-energy phosphate-bond equivalents are utilized in the process of activation of amino acids for protein synthesis? A. Zero B. One C. Two D. Three E. Four 6. The removal of introns and subsequent self-splicing of adjacent exons occurs in some portions of primary ribosomal RNA transcripts. The splicing of introns in messenger RNA precursors is: A. RNA-catalyzed in the absence of protein B. Self-splicing C. Carried out by spliceosomes D. Controlled by RNA polymerase E. Regulated by RNA helicase 7. Which of the following statements correctly describes the recombinant DNA tool known as plasmids? A. They are found more commonly in viruses than in bacteria B. They are single-stranded circles C. They sometimes enhance bacterial susceptibility to antibiotics D. They sometimes enhance bacterial resistance to antibiotics E. They are too small to be useful as vectors for the cloning of mammalian DNA segments 8. The process that occurs at the 5 amino position of cytidine and often correlates with gene inactivation is: A. Gene conversion B. Sister chromatid exchange C. Pseudogene D. Gene rearrangement E. DNA methylation 9. A sample of human DNA is subjected to increasing temperature until the major fraction exhibits optical density changes due to disruption of its helix (melting or denaturation). A smaller fraction is atypical in that it requires a much higher temperature for melting. The
