Angiotensinogen core promoter element is a lecture and an article as part of the gene transcription series.

You are free to take this quiz based on the angiotensinogen core promoter element 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 | edit source]


1 The portion of the promoter in which an angiotensinogen core promoter element is likely to be found is which of the following?

core promoter
proximal promoter
downstream promoter
distal promoter

2 Yes or No, AGCE1 can occur upstream from -25 to -1 base pairs (bp)s of the transcription start site.


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, Some angiotensinogen core promoter elements are located in the distal promoter.


5 Which of the following is not a transcriptional characteristic of angiotensinogen core promoter elements?

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

6 Yes or No, The consensus sequence 3'-A/C-T-C/T-5', by convention, is 5'-MTY-3'.


7 Complete the text:

The angiotensinogen core promoter element is an

of a core promoter element found in the

of only

gene (the human

gene angiotensin).

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
angiotensinogen core promoter element - G
core promoter of only one gene

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 angiotensinogen core promoter elements?

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

10 True or False, Angiotensinogen core promoter elements are found in the promoter regions of at least 1% of human genes.


Hypotheses[edit | edit source]

  1. A1BG is not transcribed by any angiotensinogen core promoter element.
