Q. A gene is composed of

a promoter
regulatory binding sequences
all of the above
Q. Production of an mRNA in eukaryotes is complicated by

regulators sometimes located thousands of base pairs away
all of the above
Q. Transcription and processing of rRNA in eukaryotes occurs in

the nucleolus
the cytoplasm
the smooth endoplasmic reticulum
the nucleus, but not the nucleolus
the rough endoplasmic reticulum
Q. A scenario where a protein must bind to the promoter of a gene to stimulate its transcription is a form of which type of regulation?

Feedback inhibition
Post-translational silencing
Positive regulation
Negative regulation
RNA interference
Q. Which of the following statements is incorrect?

Transcription begins at the promoter.
The start of translation occurs at the corresponding spot of the RNA that was the beginning of transcription.
RNA polymerase binding to the promoter can be assisted by accessory factors.
A transcriptional repressor can bind to the promoter.
Initiation of translation involves ribosome binding.
Q. Which of the following is not a regulator of transcription?

TATA-binding protein
RNA polymerases
Transcription factors
Q. Which of the following is the best evidence to support the idea that it is the sequence of the tRNA anticodon that is responsible for bringing the correct amino acid to the site of translation?

A mutation in the anticodon makes the tRNA recognize a different codon.
A mutation outside of the anticodon makes the tRNA recognize a different codon.
A mutation in the anticodon has no effect.
A mutation outside of the anticodon changes the structure of the tRNA.
All of the above are good pieces of evidence.
Q. The best analogy for translation is

making a copy of a document
editing a document
converting a document into another language
placing a document in storage
cutting and pasting a document
