1) Myc is an oncogenic transcription factor that regulates cell growth and division. When
myc is over-expressed in cells, they are transformed (i.e. they grow uncontrollably).
During a cloning experiment you unexpectedly fused myc to the estrogen receptor
1) A) CAK, Cdc25, Wee1, and M-Cyclin regulate CDK activity. Diagram how each of these
proteins activate and/or repress CDK activity. Make sure each protein is labeled with its role
(activating/repressing), its biochemical function, and include any positiv
Secretory Pathway II
Vesicular trac, Secre/on and Endocytosis
ER (endoplasmic re?culum) func?ons:
- Protein synthesis
- Protein folding
- Lipid synthesis
- Ca2+ storage and signaling
Endocytosis and Secretory Pathway I (ER)
Endocytosis= endo (inside) +cytosis (cell)
Endocytosis is the transport into the cell from the plasma
What is transported?
Membrane Structure and
Transmembrane Transport of Ions and
Membranes are crucial to cell structure and func2on.
