Amino acids/Quiz

From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Catabolism of proteinogenic amino acids. Amino acids can be classified according to the properties of their main products as either of the following:[1]
* Glucogenic, with the products having the ability to form glucose by gluconeogenesis
* Ketogenic, with the products not having the ability to form glucose. These products may still be used for ketogenesis or lipid synthesis.
* Amino acids catabolized into both glucogenic and ketogenic products.

Amino acids is a lecture, part of the gene transcription series.

You are free to take this quiz based on amino acids at any time.

To improve your score, read and study the lecture, the links contained within, listed under See also, External links, and in the {{gene project}} template.

This should give you adequate background to get 100 %.

As a "learning by doing" resource, this quiz helps you to assess your knowledge and understanding of the information, and it is a quiz you may take over and over as a learning resource to improve your knowledge, understanding, test-taking skills, and your score.

Suggestion: Have the lecture available in a separate window.

To master the information and use only your memory while taking the quiz, try rewriting the information from more familiar points of view, or be creative with association.

Enjoy learning by doing!

Quiz[edit]







  

1

Yes or No, A protein is one or more polypeptides held together by peptide bonds.

Yes
No

2

True or False, The purpose of a treatment group with respect to proteins is to describe natural processes or phenomena for the first time relative to a control group.

TRUE
FALSE

3

Several promoter elements have been previously identified in eukaryotes, but those cannot account for transcription from most RNA polymerase II-transcribed

4

Yes or No, Any naturally occurring complex combination of amino acids that contains at least the elements: carbon (C), hydrogen (H), nitrogen (N), and oxygen (O) are called proteins.

Yes
No

5

True or False, Any protein is located in the proximal promoter.

TRUE
FALSE

6

Which of the following is not a transcriptional characteristic of a protein?

located between nucleotides -8 and +2 relative to the transcriptional start site (+1)
G/A/T-G/C+1-G-T/C-G-G-G/A-A-G/C
in eukaryotes
TATA-less genes

7

True or False, A difference between a protein and a polypeptide is that a protein may contain nitrogen.

TRUE
FALSE

8

Which of the following are phenomena associated with any protein?

transcription of A1BG

A short or

realization of a certain

or idea to

a treatment's feasibility for proteins is called a proof of

Hypotheses[edit]

  1. Proteins differ from polypeptides by having additional elements such as nitrogen, phosphorus, zinc, and others.
