What are you likely to observe if you expressed this chimeric GR gene in an otherwise normal cell?;A. Chimeric GR protein would undergo Mannose-6P modification in the cis-golgi and accumulate in the lysosome bound to intracellular cholesterol.;B. Chimeric GR protein would be a type I integral membrane protein capable of endocytosing LDL particles.;C. Chimeric GR protein would accumulate in the ER, increase the ratio of GSSG:GSH thereby promoting disulfide bond formation & enhancing protein folding.;D. Chimeric GR protein would accumulate in the ER, increase the ratio of GSH:GSSG thereby inhibiting disulfide bond formation & enhancing protein misfolding.;E. Chimeric GR protein would be secreted with no physiological effects.;Question 1 of 5;You observe that a particular protein is modified by Glucosidase II and UDP-glucose-glycoprotein glucosyl transferase, but not Mannosidase I if otherwise normal mammalian cells are incubated at 40?C. However, this same protein is modified by Glucosidase II, Mannosidase I and N-Acetylglucosamine phosphotransferase if these cells are incubated at 32?C. Identify the protein.;A. The protein is the allele of Mdr1 present in drug-resistant tumor cells.;B. The protein is an allele of BiP in which KDEL has been replaced with REDV.;C. The protein is the M6P receptor.;D. The protein is the?F508 allele of CFTR.;E. The protein is an allele of a lysosomal enzyme with a missense mutation.;Question 2 of 5;The lysosomes in cells from individuals with Tay-Sachs (T-S) disease are deficient in hexosaminidase A (HEXA). However, cells from some individuals with T-S exhibit normal lysosomes containing functional HEXA if they are incubated with a small molecule that resembles N-Acetylgalactosamine. Based on this observation, which of the following is the most likely cause of the HEXA deficiency in these particular T-S individuals?;A. T-S cells lack the M6P receptor.;B. T-S HEXA misfolds in the ER and is ERADicated.;C. T-S HEXA lacks recognition sites for NAGPT.;D. T-S cells lack NAGPT.;E.

Macrophage within blood vessels, differentiate into foam cells in response to inflammation.;B. Macrophage within the intima, accumulate excess HDL particles and become foam cells.;C. Macrophage within the intima import LDL particles, accumulate lipid droplets & differentiate into foam cells.;D. Undifferentiated monocytes within the intima import LDL particles, accumulate lipid droplets & differentiate into macrophage which are also called foam cells.;E. Undifferentiated monocytes within the bloodstream import LDL particles, accumulate lipid droplets & differentiate into macrophage which are also called foam cells.;Question 4 of 5;Why is the majority of cholesterol in the LDL particle esterified to linoleic acid?;A. To increase the fluidity of the LDL particle so it?s less prone to clog an artery.;B. To increase the amount of cholesterol packaged inside the LDL particle.;C. To reduce the concentration of linoleic acid in the bloodstream.;D. To reduce the amount of cholesterol packaged inside in the LDL particle.;E. To reduce fluidity of the LDL particle so it?s more compact.;Question 5 of 5;Which of the following describes the relationship between the level of a cell surface endocytic receptor (e.g., the LDL receptor) and the concentration of its corresponding ligand (e.g., the LDL particle)?;A. Receptor level is proportional to intracellular ligand concentration.;B. Receptor level is proportional to extracellular ligand concentration.;C. Receptor level is inversely proportional to intracellular ligand concentration.;D. Receptor level is inversely proportional to extracellular ligand concentration.;E. There is no relationship between receptor level and its ligand concentration.
