Question 7 of 20

Medal-premium 1

  • Thr14 has been phosphorylated

Question 8 of 20

Medal-premium 1

What difference does phosphorylating Glycogen phosphorylase make?

Select one of the following:

  • Makes the relaxed form much more likely

  • Makes the taut form much more likely

  • Deactivates it entirely

Question 9 of 20

Medal-premium 1

How does phosphorylase B Kinase connect Glycogen Phosphorylase levels to the level of stimulation?

Select one of the following:

  • It is activated by Ca2+- when the muscle is stimulated, glucose is needed and so glycogen is broken down

  • It is deactivated by Ca2+- when the muscle is stimulated, glucose is not needed and so glycogen isn't broken down

Select one of the following:

  • Calmodulin

  • Calsequestrin

  • Troponin C

  • Gamma and beta

Question 12 of 20

Medal-premium 1

Which part of phosphorylase B kinase is catalytic?

Select one of the following:

  • Gamma

  • Delta

  • Beta

  • A hydrophillic tunnel

  • A lipophobic tunnel

Question 19 of 20

Medal-premium 1

Why is glycogen phosphorylase's site in a deep groove?

Select one of the following:

  • To prevent AMP from entering

  • To prevent ATP from entering
