NAME:___________________________________ Page 2 of 5 1. (8 pts.) You have two confluent plates of epithelial cells growing in medium - Plate X is untreated while Plate Y is treated with EGTA, a Ca 2+ chelator. When both plates of cells are wounded by dragging a needle twenty times across each plate, you observe that after 6 hours the number of surviving cells in Plate X is higher than in Plate Y. Explain the difference in survival highlighting what you know about the Patch Repair hypothesis. 2. (17 pts.) You are interested in the process of mitochondrial movement in neuronal cells. The graph below indicates the results of experiments you carried out in cells using the drugs colchicine (disrupts microtubules) and cytochalasin D (disrupts actin microfilaments). The graph shows the effects of these drugs on the relative anterograde mobility of mitochondria towards the axon terminus. Values are relative to the movement observed in the absence of either drug
