Medal-premium 1

Question 4 of 15

Medal-premium 1

What is required for caspase activation?

Question 5 of 15

Medal-premium 1

What are the roles of the 2 main caspases?

Select one of the following:

  • 3 is the initation
    8 does most damage

  • 8 is the initiator
    3 does most damage

Question 6 of 15

Medal-premium 1

Which of the following are survival/protector proteins that inhibit caspase activation?

Select one of the following:

  • BAX, BAD, PUMA

  • Bci-2, Mcl1, A1

Question 7 of 15

Medal-premium 1

What is required for ligand acitvated apoptosis?

Select one of the following:

  • For the receptors to contain DED domains

  • For the receptors to be bound to caspases

  • For the receptors to be expressed only in certain areas of the cell membrane

Question 8 of 15

Medal-premium 1

What protein inhibits the activation of apoptic receptors?

Select one of the following:

  • Flp

  • Flr

  • Fld

Medal-premium 1

Name an apoptic receptor

Select one of the following:

  • Fas

  • Far

  • Fam

Question 10 of 15

Medal-premium 1

How does the receptor activate caspase 8?

Select one of the following:

  • By recruiting it and cleaving off the DED domain

  • By recruiting it and adding a DED domain

Question 11 of 15

Medal-premium 1

Name the two methods caspase 8 uses to destroy the cell

Select one or more of the following:

  • Activation of Caspase 3

Question 12 of 15

Medal-premium 1

What does mitochondrial damage do to Casp 9?

Select one of the following:

  • Activates it

  • Deactivates it

Question 13 of 15

Medal-premium 1

What happens when essential growth factors are withdrawn from the cell?

Select one or more of the following:

Question 14 of 15

Medal-premium 1

How does PKB inhibit apoptosis?

Select one of the following:
