TATA binding proteins is a lecture and an article as part of the gene transcription series.

You are free to take this quiz based on TATA binding proteins 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}} 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!

Quiz[edit]

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

1. Yes or No, The TATA-binding protein (TBP) is a general transcription factor that binds specifically to a DNA sequence called the TATA box.

Yes
No

2. True or False, A dominant group associated with TATA binding proteins differs from a control group in that it rules the treatment of the 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, TBP, along with a variety of TBP-associated factors, make up the TFIID, a general transcription factor.

Yes
No

5. True or False, The TATA binding protein is located in the distal promoter.

TRUE
FALSE

6. Which of the following is not a transcriptional characteristic of the TATA binding 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
a consensus sequence

7. Yes or No, As one of the few proteins in the preinitiation complex that binds DNA in a sequence-specific manner, TBP helps position RNA polymerase II over the transcription start site of the gene.

Yes
No

8. Which of the following are phenomena associated with the TATA binding protein?

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

9. Yes or No, As one of the few proteins in the preinitiation complex that binds DNA in a sequence-specific manner, TBP helps position RNA polymerase II over the transcription start site of the gene.

Yes
No

10. True or False, TATA binding protein is found in the promoter regions of about 1% of human genes.

TRUE
FALSE

Your score is 0 / 0
