Hi, Q3 seems fine. Although just to nitpick, a gene carries the information required to manufacture a single protein (in eukaryotes). This will not neccessarily function unless other proteins are also manufactured. In the case of enxymes, co-factors etc. Your answer to Q6 is a tad wrong. Proteins ar...

DNA is produced by replication of two existing strands when they are unwound, NOT transcription.

Re: How many H+ are necessary to drive the synthesis on ONE ATP?


The current evidence suggests 3 H+ are require to synthesise 1 ATP molecule.

One H+ moves the ATP sythase one conformation between open, loose, tight etc. So therefore 3 H+ are requireed for one full cyle and thus production of 1 ATP.

Hope this makes sense,
Harvey :wink:

Golgi Body

Hi there, Just a quick question on the Golgi Body (assuming maturation model)... My text book says vesicles fuse with each other and then the cis-cisternae after budding from the rough ER. But what exactly is the cis-cisternae? Purely a collection of vesicles early in the maturation process?...or ra...
