Gene transcription is the keynote lecture and article of the gene transcription series.

You are free to take this quiz based on Gene transcription at any time.

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

A suggestion is to 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!


Point added for a correct answer:   
Points for a wrong answer:
Ignore the questions' coefficients:

1 True or False, The purpose of a treatment group in gene transcription is to describe natural processes or phenomena for the first time relative to a control group.


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

3 True or False, Pure gene transcription involves no doing apart from itself.


4 Evidence that demonstrates that a model or idea versus a control group is feasible in gene transcrption is called a


5 True or False, The gene transcription protein is located in the distal promoter.


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

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

7 True or False, A control group may be used in gene transcription to demonstrate no effect or a standard effect versus a novel effort applied to a treatment group.


8 Which of the following are phenomena associated with gene transcription?

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

9 True or False, Gene transcription is found in the promoter regions of about 1% of human genes.

A short or realization of a certain or idea to a treament's feasibility is called a proof of .

11 True or False, A dominant group associated with gene transcription differs from a control group in that it rules the treatment of the control group.
