31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 1

Protein synthesis in an animal cell takes place

[1997] 

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 1

Ribosomes are the robust organelles, present in the cytoplasm, composed of rRNA and a set of specific proteins. They are present free in cytosol or on the surface of the endoplasmic reticulum. The spatial separation depends on the presence of ER-targeting signal sequence on the protein being synthesized, thus, a particular ribosome might be ER-bound while synthesizing one protein and free in the cytosol when translating another protein

So, the correct answer is 'On ribosomes present in cytoplasm as well as in mitochondria'

[1997]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 3

mRNA or messenger RNA brings coded information  from DNA to form polypeptides. rRNA or ribosomal RNA occurs inside ribosomes and is involved in protein synthesis. 

31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 4

Radioactive thymidine when added to the medium surrounding living mammalian cells gets incorporated into the newly synthesized DNA. Which of the following types of chromatin is expected to become radioactive if cells are exposed to radioactive thymidine as soon as they enter the S-phase ?

[1998]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 4

Heterochromatin is a specialized chromosome material which remains tightly coiled and stains darkly in interphase. Euchromatin is that portion of the chromosome that stains with low intensity and uncoils during interphase. In the beginning of S-sphase, DNA replication occurs. DNA replication can occur in diffuse/ less tightly coiled euchromatin.

31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 14

Feedback inhibition of an enzymatic reaction is caused by

[2000]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 14

Feedback inhibition is the process by where the end product terminates the reaction. The accumulation of the end product interferes with the enzymatic activity by changing the shape of its active site. On changing the shape of the active site, the substrate does not attach to the active site and thus the reaction terminates. During glycolysis, the glucose changes to glucose 6 phosphates in presence of hexokinase. When the amount of glucose 6 phosphate exceeds it deactivate hexokinase.
So, the correct answer is option A.

31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 15

Enzymes enhance the rate of reaction by

[2000]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 15

Activation energy is the energy required to over come energy barrier of the reactants and make them reactive to start a chemical reaction. Enzymes lower the requirement of activation energy.

Erucic acid is a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid, denoted 22 : 1 w-9. It is prevalent in rapeseed, wallflower seed, and mustard seed, making up 40 to 50 percent of their oils. Erucic acid is also known as cis-13-docosenoic acid and the trans isomer is known as brassidic acid.

31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 21

Lipids are insoluble in water because lipid molecules are

[2002]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 21

Water attracting molecules are called hydrophilic. Water repelling molecules are called hydrophobic. Amino acids carry simultaneously positive and negative charges. Such substances are called zwitter ions.  Lipids are compounds of C, H, O but the ratio of H and O is more than 2 : 1 that is the ratio of oxygen is lesser than  carbohydrates. Lipids are insoluble in  water but soluble in non-polar solvents such as benzene, chloroform etc. Commonest lipid found in a cell is phospholipid. It contains a hydrophilic (polar) head and a hydrophobic (non- polar tail). 

31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 22

Which of the following is a reducing sugar?

[2002]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 22

Reducing sugar is any sugar that has an aldehyde group or is capable  of forming one in solution through isomerisation. Reducing monosaccharides include glucose, fructose, glyceraldehyde  and galactose. Many disaccharides,  like lactose and maltose also have a reducing form, as one of the two units may have an open- chain form with an aldehyde group.
However, sucrose and trehalose in which the anomeric carbons of the two units are linked together, are non reducing disaccharides since neither of the rings is capable of opening.

[2004]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 24

Malignant cancer is caused by loss of control over cell’s reproduction capacity. The cells undergo rapid division. Therefore, they are more easily damaged by radiations than normal cells.

31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Biomolecules - 3 - Question 25
