Boxes is a lecture and an article as part of the gene transcription series.

You are free to take this quiz based on the boxes 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, The human α-satellite consensus sequence contains only three CpG sequences within its 171 base-pair sequence.

Yes
No

2

The portion of the promoter in which a box is likely to be found is which of the following?

core promoter
proximal promoter
downstream promoter
distal promoter
enhancer

3

Yes or No, The C and D box elements are essential for snoRNA production transcription and for snoRNA-directed modification of rRNA nucleotides.

Yes
No

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 boxes are located in the distal promoter.

TRUE
FALSE

6

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

11

Yes or No, The AGC box, GCC element, or AGCCGCC sequence, is an ethylene-responsive element found in the promoters of a large number of pathogenesis related (PR) genes.

Yes
No

12

Which of the following are phenomena associated with boxes?

transcription of A1BG

TRUE
FALSE


Hypotheses[edit]

  1. A1BG is not transcribed by a box.
