B) the random combinations of eggs and sperm during fertilization
C) the random distribution of the sister chromatids to the two daughter cells during anaphase II
D) the relatively small degree of homology shared by the X and Y chromosomes
E) the diverse combination of alleles that may be found within any given chromosome

At a certain location in a gene, the template strand of DNA has the sequence GAAG. A mutation results in an
insertion making the sequence GAAAG. This type of mutation is likely to cause a __________ mutation
a. silent.
b. missense.
c. nonsense.
d. frame-shift.
e. translocation.

B. Nucleosomes consist of DNA and several histone molecules.
c. During mitosis and meiosis, chromatin becomes highly coiled and condensed.

One of the daughter cells. A) TTG-CTA-CAG-TAG B) AAC-GAC-GUC-AUA C) AUG-CTG-CAG-TAT D) AAA-AAT-ATA-ACA E) AAA-GAA-TAA-CAA 12 Suppose you are provided with an actively dividing culture of E. the rate of DNA repair is equal to the rate of DNA mutation. e. DNA in both daughter cells would be radioactive. and the children typically do not live through their teenage years. they found the DNA had shorter ________ than those of healthy individuals. and fragile bone structure typically begin during infancy. C) The cell will become embryonic. B) RNA may be used instead of DNA as inheritance material. what is a possible fate of the cell? A) The cell can be transformed to a cancerous cell. When scientists looked at the DNA of these individuals. D) DNA synthesis will continue by a new mechanism. coli bacteria to which radioactive thymine has been added. A) telomeres B) ribosomes C) introns D) primers 10 In a healthy cell. . Radioactive thymine would pair with nonradioactive guanine. What would happen if a cell replicates once in the presence of this radioactive base? a. Balding. All four bases of the DNA would be radioactive. Neither of the two daughter cells would be radioactive. d. what is the function of DNA polymerase III? A) to unwind the DNA helix during replication B) to seal together the broken ends of DNA strands C) to add nucleotides to the end of a growing DNA strand D) to degrade damaged DNA molecules E) to rejoin the two DNA strands (one new and one old) after replication 8 Which of the following sequences would result from replication of this DNA template strand? 3′-AAGTCAGT-5′ A) 3′-AAGTCAGT-5′ B) 5′-AAGTCAGT-3′ C) 5’TGACTGAA3’ D) 3’’TGACTGAA5’ E) 5′-TTCAGTCA-3′ 9 Hutchinson-Gilford progeria is a syndrome that results in the accelerated aging of infants and children. circulatory trouble. would have radioactive DNA c. but not the other. coli. 11 A possible sequence of nucleotides in the template strand of DNA that would code for the polypeptide sequence phe-leu-ile-val would be _____. When the rate of repair lags behind the rate of mutation. b.7 In E.

17 Death cap mushrooms produce a substance called alpha-amanitin. c. A+B=D 15 A man has extra digits (six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot). B=D+E D. b. Reactions 1 and 2 contain only a single enzyme. but not RNA polymerase I and II C) the action of one or more basic transcription factors D) the action of RNA polymerase II. C=A+B B. but not RNA polymerase I or III . This is possible because alpha-amanitin efficiently interferes with _____. Wells #1 and #2 receive the reactions with single enzymes while well #3 gets the reaction with both enzymes.13 How can DNA. The figure here shows the results of the electrophoresis run. DNA molecules form codons of three bases that code for amino acids. A) the action of RNA polymerase I. Exons are cut out before mRNA leaves the nucleus. The couple's second child has extra digits. which is made up of only four different bases. but not RNA polymerase II or III B) RNA polymerase III. DNA molecules are extremely long. D) A primary transcript is often much shorter than the final RNA molecule that leaves the nucleus. C) RNA splicing can be catalyzed by tRNA. C=A+D E. but not of tRNA or rRNA in eukaryotic organisms. the third reaction receives both enzymes. Alpha-amanitin efficiently blocks synthesis of mRNA. The reactions are loaded into wells of an electrophoresis gel. Having extra digits is a dominant trait. e. Which of the following choices correctly describes the relationship between the fragment size of DNA in the bands (A-E)? A. All of the above 14 Suppose a piece of DNA is digested with two different restriction enzymes in three reactions. encode the information necessary to specify the workings of an entire organism? a. DNA can be replicated with low error rates. His wife and their daughter have a normal number of digits. B=D+A C. d. What is the probability that their next (third) child will have extra digits? A) 1/2 B) 1/16 C) 1/8 D) 3/4 E) 9/16 16 Which one of the following statements about RNA processing is true? A) Ribozymes may function in RNA splicing B). The genetic code is redundant but not ambiguous.
