all of the above
Q. Transcription and processing of rRNA in eukaryotes occurs in
the smooth endoplasmic reticulum
the nucleus, but not the nucleolus

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?
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?
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.
