Question 2 of 18

Medal-premium 1

Select one of the following:

  • codon

  • anti-codon

  • triplet

Question 3 of 18

Medal-premium 1

there is two stages of protein synthesis; translation and transcription

Select one of the following:

  • True
  • False

Question 4 of 18

Medal-premium 1

Translation happens before transcription

Select one of the following:

  • True
  • False

Question 5 of 18

Medal-premium 1

where does transcription occur?

Select one of the following:

  • nucleus

  • cytoplasm

  • ribosome

Question 6 of 18

Medal-premium 1

what happens in translation?

Select one or more of the following:

  • the ribosome reads the mRNA

  • the mRNA is coded for

  • the tRNA brings the coded for amino acid to the mRNA

  • the polypeptide chain is released and folds into a functional protein

  • the mRNA leaves the nucleus

Question 7 of 18

Medal-premium 1

more than one codon, can code for an amino acid

Select one of the following:

  • True
  • False

Question 8 of 18

Medal-premium 1

what is the purpose of transcription?

Select one of the following:

  • the purpose is for mRNA to transcribe the code for a protein so the original DNA doesnt get damaged

  • the purpose is to use mRNA to make a protein that can be used for cellular functions

Question 9 of 18

Medal-premium 1

what are the types of mutations that cause frameshift?

Select one or more of the following:

  • deletion

  • insertion

  • substitution

Question 10 of 18

Medal-premium 1

what type of substitution mutation changes the coded for amino acid?

Select one of the following:

  • silent

  • nonsense

  • missense

Question 11 of 18

Medal-premium 1

what type of mutation can be inherited?

Select one of the following:

  • somatic

  • gametic

Question 12 of 18

Medal-premium 1

what type of substitution mutation codes for a stop codon?

Select one of the following:

  • silent

  • nonsense

  • missense

Question 13 of 18

Medal-premium 1

silent mutation is the result of redundancy due to degeneracy

Select one of the following:

  • True
  • False

Question 14 of 18

Medal-premium 1

what is frameshift?

Select one of the following:

  • when one base is inserted or deleted and the bases are moved over one resulting in different amino acids

  • when a base is swapped for another base

  • when the stop codon is coded for and results in the polypeptide chain not being completed and an unfunctional protein made

Select one of the following:

  • True
  • False
