You should notice from the graph and photograph that PDG reduces cholera symptoms. On the next page you will be presented with evidence as to the mechanism of action by which PDG reduces cholera symptoms. You will need to use the figure on this page to answer the question on the next page.

A key tool in the process of cholera drug discovery is forskolin (FSK), a product of the endangered plant Coleus forskohlii . This second figure presents results from experiments in which brush border cell cAMP levels are measured after treatment with PDG, treatment with FSK, and treatment with both substances. Note: The “NS.” In the graph tells us that T-tests confirm that the differences between control and PDG results are not significant, nor are the differences between FSK and FSK+PDG treatments significant. The two sets of data ARE significanty different from one another. This is a nice example of T-test use. c. What symptoms would you expect to be caused in the small intestine from FSK treatment alone? d. From the evidence provided in the two figures which of the following is the most likely explanation of these experimental results? The Cholera toxin is not used in this experiment. a. PDG is an inhibitor of the CFTR channel b. PDG is an activator of the CFTR channel c. PDG is an allosteric inhibitor of the enzyme that produces cAMP d. PDG is a competitive inhibitor of the enzyme that produces cAMP e. PDG is an inhibitor of the enzyme that produces cAMP, but we can’t tell from the data whether it is competitive or allosteric inhibition Because we often don’t get to it in time this HW has no nutrient homeostasis questions. If they will be on the quiz, please start HW 4 early, for the blood sugar questions

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
