In eukaryotic cells, n early all cell membrane is initially formed in the [A. Endoplasmic Reticulum/B. Golgi]. 2. [A. Yes/B. No] Is the plasma membrane of a cell with hundreds of transmembrane proteins anchored to the cytoskeleton still fluid? 3. The deletion of a single base in the protein coding region of a gene [A. is more /B. is less] likely to alter the structure of the gene's protein than the substitution of one base for another. 4. Of the two kinds of ce ll death, [A. necrosis/B. apoptosis] is an important part of normal developmental processes. 5. New plasma membrane re aches the cell surface by the [A. regulated/B. constitutive] exocytotic pathway. 6.

G1/B. G2]. 8. In the plasma membrane, phospholipid molecules are organized into a bilayer such that the [A. polar/B. nonpolar) regions are at the membrane surface. 9. During mitosis [A. kin etochore/B. aster] microtubules establish contact with and help separate chromosomes. 10. In double-stranded DNA helix, a (A. thymine/B. guanine) nucleotide always base-pairs with adenine. 11. [A. True/ B. False] When read in the 5' to 3' direction, the sequence of nucleotides in a newly synthesized DNA strand is the same as in the parental template strand. 12. The characteristic feature of Receptor tyrosine kinases is the presence of [A. a kinase domain/B. a kinase binding domain] in the cytoplasmic region of the receptor. 13. An incoming aminoacyl- tRNA carrying the next amino acid in the chain will bind to the [A. P-site /B. A-site] by forming base pairs with the exposed codon in the mRNA. 14. The resting membrane p otential of any cell depends on the presence of [A. passive/B. voltage- gated] channels for selected ions (usually K+ or Na+). 15. [A. Covalent/B. Non-covalent] bonds are formed between the codon and anti-codon. Page 1, v1

    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.

    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.
