  • IP3

  • Diacylglycerol

Question 5 of 15

Medal-premium 1

What role(s) does the released Ca perform?

Select one or more of the following:

  • Activates protein kinase C

  • Activates protein kinase B

  • Activates various Ca dependent protein kinases

Question 6 of 15

Medal-premium 1

What residues are phosphorylated by the protein kinases activated by this pathway?

Select one or more of the following:

  • Serine

  • Threonine

  • Tyrosine

Question 7 of 15

Medal-premium 1

Which subunit of Protein Kinase C contains the pseudosubstrate domain?

Select one of the following:

  • PS

  • C1A

  • C4

Question 8 of 15

Medal-premium 1

What is the function of subunut C1A

Select one of the following:

  • DAG binding site

  • Calcium binding site

  • Phosphatidyl serine binding site

Question 9 of 15

Medal-premium 1

Do Ca 2+ and phosphatidyl serine bind to subunit C2?

Select one of the following:

  • Yes

  • No

Question 10 of 15

Medal-premium 1

Which subunits are part of the catalytic domain?

Select one or more of the following:

  • C1A

  • C3

  • C4

  • PS

  • C5

Question 11 of 15

Medal-premium 1

ATP binds to C2, True or False?

Select one of the following:

  • True

  • False

Question 12 of 15

Medal-premium 1

When IP3 causes the increase in cytosolic calcium, what happens to protein kinase C?

Select one of the following:

  • It moves to the membrane and binds with DAG

  • It remains in the cytoplasm and binds with DAG

Question 13 of 15

Medal-premium 1

Once protein kinase C has bound to DAG in the membrane, what does it then bind to to release the pseudosubstrate from its active site?

Select one of the following:

  • Phosphatidylserine

  • Phosphatidylglycine

  • Phosphatidylglutamate

Question 14 of 15

Medal-premium 1

Which of the following is a tumor promoting agent?

Select one of the following:

  • Phorbol ester

  • Orphol ester

  • Phenyl ester

Question 15 of 15

Medal-premium 1

How do tumor promoting agents effect Phospholipase CBeta?

Select one of the following:

  • They bind without being degraded, so it becomes hyperactive

  • They stop the alpha subunit binding, so it becomes unreactive

  • They cause the multiplication of the number of PCbeta enzymes in the cell, causing hyperactivity
