Review session for exam-III
Q1. Which of these is able to cross the inner mitochondrial membrane? A. fatty acyl-CoA B. malonyl-CoA C. acetyl-CoA D. fatty acyl-carnitine E. none of the above can cross
Q2. The normal sequence of action of these components of the hormonal hierarchy is: adrenal cortex hypothalamus anterior pituitary anterior pituitary adrenal cortex hypothalamus anterior pituitary hypothalamus adrenal cortex hypothalamus adrenal cortex anterior pituitary hypothalamus anterior pituitary adrenal cortex
Q3. Describe five possible fates for glucose 6-phosphate in the liver.
Q3 answer (1) conversion to liver glycogen; (2) dephosphorylation and release of glucose into bloodstream; (3) oxidation via the pentose phosphate pathway; (4) oxidation via glycolysis and the citric acid cycle; (5) oxidation to acetyl- CoA, which then serves as precursor for synthesis of triacylglycerols, phospholipids, and cholesterol.
Q4. What is leptin? How does it function in the long-term maintenance of body mass?
Q4 Answer Leptin is a small polypeptide that is produced in adipocytes and is carried by the blood to the brain. It is produced when there are adequate stores of lipid in the adipocytes and interacts with a receptor in the hypothalamus. This interaction produces a cascade of effects that tend to suppress appetite and increase energy expenditure.
Q5. Which of the following cannot be used as an energy source by the brain? a. glucose b. ketone bodies c. fatty acids d. acetoacetate
Q6.. Which of the following is a major effect of insulin binding to its receptor? a. autophosphorylation of tyrosine b. dephosphorylation of substrates such as IRS-1 c. binding of phosphatidylinositol-3- kinase to the receptor
Q7. What hormone(s) is (are) a signal of the "fed state"? a. Insulin b. Glucagon c. both insulin and glucagon d. aldosteron
Q8. Which of the following is NOT true of acetoacetate and β-hydroxybutyrate? A. They can provide energy for brain cells. B. They allosterically modify other enzymes. C. They are produced from the acetyl CoA of fats. D. They cannot be used in liver.
Q9. During prolonged starvation, what is the last cellular material to be utilized? a. Glycogen b. Fats c. Proteins d. Cholesterol
Q10. Which of these can be synthesized by plants but not by humans? A. palmitate (18:0) B. stearate (20:0) C. linolenate [ )] D. Arachidonic acid E. phosphatidylcholine
Q11. Type 2 Diabetes is a disease characterized by overproduction of glucose by the liver and its underutilization by other organs. Which of the following is NOT a cause of diabetes? a.inability to produce insulin b.loss of ability to respond to insulin when it is produced c.the generation of enzymes in the blood that rapidly degrade insulin after release from the pancreas
Q12. What are plasma lipoproteins? What is their general role in mammalian metabolism?
Q13. The synthetic compound mevinolinic acid, also called lovastatin, is a potent competitive inhibitor of HMG-CoA reducdase (hydroxymethylglutaryl-CoA reductase). Predict and explain the effect of this drug on serum cholesterol levels in humans.
