Chapter 9 DNA-Based Information Technologies Multiple Choice Questions 1. DNA cloning: the basics Pages: 304-305 Difficulty: 1 Ans: C Restriction enzymes: A) act at the membrane to restrict the passage of certain molecules into the cell. B) are highly specialized ribonucleases that degrade mRNA soon after its synthesis. C) are sequence-specific DNA endonucleases. D) are very specific proteases that cleave peptides at only certain sequences. E) catalyze the addition of a certain amino acid to a specific tRNA. 2.

Chapter 9 Recombinant DNA Technology 5. DNA cloning: the basics Page: 305 Difficulty: 2 Ans: C Certain restriction enzymes produce cohesive (sticky) ends. This means that they: A) cut both DNA strands at the same base pair. B) cut in regions of high GC content, leaving ends that can form more hydrogen bonds than ends of high AT content. C) make a staggered double-strand cut, leaving ends with a few nucleotides of single-stranded DNA protruding . D) make ends that can anneal to cohesive ends generated by any other restriction enzyme. E) stick tightly to the ends of the DNA they have cut. 6. DNA cloning: the basics Page: 307 Difficulty: 3 In the laboratory, recombinant plasmids are commonly introduced into bacterial cells by: 7. DNA cloning: the basics Pages: 307-308 Difficulty: 2 Ans: B The E. coli recombinant plasmid pBR322 has been widely utilized in genetic engineering experiments. pBR322 has all of the following features except : A) a number of conveniently located recognition sites for restriction enzymes.
