Transcription of A1BG is a lecture as part of the gene transcription series.

You are free to take this quiz based on the transcription of A1BG 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!


1 Yes or No, A stable preinitiation complex can form in vitro on TATA-dependent core promoters by association of the basal factors in the following order: TFIID/TFIIA, TFIIB, RNA polymerase II/TFIIF, TFIIE, and then TFIIH.


2 The portion of a promoter in which the transcription of A1BG takes place is likely to be found in which of the following?

dispersed promoter
proximal promoter
downstream promoter
distal promoter
focused promoter
core promoter

3 Yes or No, The two complementary strands of double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) are usually differentiated as the "sense" strand and the "antisense" strand.


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

5 True or False, Some transcriptions of A1BG are located in the dispersed promoter.


6 Which of the following is not a transcriptional characteristic of the transcription of A1BG?

located between nucleotides -8 and +2 relative to the transcriptional start site (+1)
in eukaryotes
TATA-less genes
a consensus sequence

7 Complete the text:

A1BG is a

glycoprotein of

function. The protein shows

similarity to the variable

of some

supergene family member proteins.

8 Complete the text:

Match up the type of promoter or promoter element with each of the possibilities below:
TATA box - A
initiator element - B
enhancers and inhibitors - C
downstream elements - D
General transcription factor II D - E
ATA box - F
downstream core promoter

includes the transcription start site

proximal promoter

distal promoter

core promoter

usually 25 nucleotides upstream


9 Which of the following are phenomena associated with the transcription of A1BG?

isoforms of A1BG
directs activator-dependent but TFIID-independent transcription
TATA box-less promoters
initiator element
mediator dependence
core promoter

10 True or False, The transcription of A1BG is found in the promoter regions of at least 1% of human genes.
