Name: ______________________________________ UID: _________________________________ 6 4. Imagine a protein exists in 3 conformations where the energies are each separated by 1RT (you can assume here ∆U = ∆H). When crystallized the protein moves completely to the lowest energy state, calculate the ∆G of crystallization for one hypothetical protein at equilibrium.

If the dimensions of the plate are L x L x d, what is the activity coefficient in the worst case scenario (shown below) where the second plate is perpendicular to the first (remember that activity coefficient = V Tot /(V Tot -V Excl )?

Name: ______________________________________ UID: _________________________________ 8 Problem 1. ( 30 pts ) A. A cell uses ATP hydrolysis (∆G˚ = -30 kJ/mol) to pump 2 sodium ions from inside the cell to outside the cell. Given an ATP to ADP ratio of 100, and [Pi] = 10mM, and perfect coupling between the two reactions, what will the [Na + ] out /[Na + ] in be (membrane is uncharged)? B. Now imagine the cell’s membrane has a charge of Em = -70mV. What is new the ATP- driven ratio of [Na + ] out /[Na + ] in going to be?

Given the extracellular concentration of glucose is 1nM, what is the intracellular concentration of glucose going to be?

A transcription factor binds only one target binding site on the genome with a K D of 10 -5 M, which is a thousand times stronger than it binds all other DNA sequences. The genome size is 10 8 bp. If the fractional occupancy must be 0.9,

    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.
