Question 2. (5 marks) Unlike mitochondria, chloroplasts do not have a transporter that allows them to export ATP to the cytosol. How then does the rest of the plant get the ATP it needs? Chloroplasts use photosynthesis to capture light energy and produce ATP, which is then used inside the chloroplast to produce carbohydrates (sugars) for export to the cytosol (2 marks). Those carbohydrates, e.g. pyruvate, are oxidized in the mitochondria and ATP is made in the mitochondria by oxidative phosphorylation (3 marks). Question 3. (6 marks) Imagine that you have engineered genes, encoding one protein with multiple targeting sequences. State where the protein would be located after targeting if the protein was produced by a cell. Briefly, explain your reasoning. a) (2 marks) One signal for import to the nucleus and one for import to the ER. The ER (1 mark) Proteins are inserted into the ER by co-translational insertion. Nuclear proteins are imported to the nucleus only once they are completely translated and folded (1 marks). b) (2 marks) One signal for import into the ER, one for transfer to a lysosome, one for retention in the ER lumen. The ER signal is required to import the protein into the ER.
