Study Guide # 1: The Cell

Quiz # 1: The Cell Study Guide


This is not an all-inclusive list. However a thorough understanding of the following material will greatly improve your chances of success on Quiz #1: The Cell

If you guys want any further clarification on any of the material below, or would like me to explain anything in detail, just leave a comment! I will reply with my explanation as soon as I can.

1.) Where do various processes take place within the cell? (For example, where are ribosomes produced, where does protein transcription/translation take place, where is plasma membrane produced)

2.) The various events that occur during mitosis (when do the sister chromatids align along the cell’s equator, when does the nuclear envelop dissolve, when does cytokinesis begin/end, etc)

3.) Roles of each organelle (ribosome, rough/smooth ER, lysosomes, peroxisomes.

4.) Resting membrane Potential (which ions are primarily involved,  what are the concentration gradients (sodium is of 10 times concentration in extracellular fluid etc) where is this charge difference located?)

5.) What is the start codon?

6.) Introns vs. extrons

7.) Components of the mitotic spindle

8.) Locations of the various protein synthesis events within the cell

9.) How are different compounds moved through the cell membrane (polar vs. non polar molecules, ions, lipids, sugars, etc)

10.) Structure of the anticodon

11.) The template strand, coding strand, and their relationship with mRNA

12.) How do the number of bases of an mRNA relate to the size of the amino acid chain it codes for?

13.) Proteins leaving the ER in vesicles move to which organelle?

14.) Hypertonic, hypotonic, isotonic, osmosis, concentration gradients, plasma membrane transport processes

    Hi Professor,

    I am having a bit of trouble understanding question #10 – in class you mentioned the structure of the anticodon as being tRNA, 3 nucleotide bases, and an amino acid. From the text, however, the way I am understanding it is that tRNA is made up of the anticodon at one end, and the amino acid on the other. I know this is technically a quiz question, but any help would be appreciated!

      Chris you are absolutely right! That was my mistake. The anticodon is the triplet sequence of complementary bases that pairs with the codon. An oversight on my part in my haste to get the quiz posted. Any answer will be accepted. Also sorry everyone that my replies are slow. I moved to irvine today and only my phone has internet. Good work Chris!
