31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Cell: The Unit of Life - 3 - Question 2

Which of the following occurs more than one and less than five in a chromosome?

[2002] 

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Cell: The Unit of Life - 3 - Question 2

A chromatid is one of two identical halves of a chromosome. Sister chromatids are 2 identical halves which are joined by the centromere in a chromosome. A chromomere is serially arranged beads of a chromosome that have resulted from the supercoiling of a continuous DNA thread. It is more distinct during prophase. Telomere is a cap-like structure present at the end of each strand of DNA. It protects the chromosome from sticking to another chromosome. It also protects the genetic material during cell division. It occurs 4 times in a chromosome.

Thus, the correct answer is 'Telomere.'

[2003]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Cell: The Unit of Life - 3 - Question 5

Raphides are needle-shaped crystals of calcium carbonate or calcium oxalate found in specialized plant cells called idioblasts. It is believed that the raphides are a defense mechanism against plant predators, as they are likely to tear the soft tissues of the throat or esophagus of a plant predator chewing on the plant’s leaves. They are non-nitrogenous substances.

Which one of the following is not a constituent of cell membrane?

[2007]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Cell: The Unit of Life - 3 - Question 16

The biological membranes are made up of lipids and proteins. The various lipids present in the membrane are phospholipids, cerebrosides, gangliosides, cholesterol, glycolipids etc. Proline is an amino acid which is generally known as chain breaker because of its structure. Proline is generally absent in membrane proteins. Proline usually occurs in regions where protein chain makes sharp turns. 
So, the correct answer is 'Proline'

31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Cell: The Unit of Life - 3 - Question 17

Keeping in view the fluid mosaic model for the structure of cell membrane, which one of the following statements is correct with respect to the movement of lipids and proteins from one lipid monolayer to the other (described as flipflop movement)?

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Cell: The Unit of Life - 3 - Question 17

Keeping in view the ‘Fluid mosaic model” for the structure of cell membrane, the movement of lipids and proteins from one lipid monolayer to the other, lipid can rarely flip-flop, protein can not. The fluid mosaic model is the most important and widely accepted latest model for plasma membrane was given by Singer and Nicolson in 1972. According the them it is “ protein iceberg in a sea of lipids”.

[2008]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Cell: The Unit of Life - 3 - Question 19

Cellulose is a major component of cell wall of Pythium. Pythium is a genus of parasitic Oomycete. Because this group of organisms were once classified as fungi, they are sometimes still treated as such. Pythium, like others in the family Pythiaceae, are usually characterized by their production of coenocytic hyphae, hyphae without separations. Oogonia generally contain a   single Oospore. Antheridia contain an elongated and club shaped antheridium.

Vacuole in a plant cell

[2008]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Cell: The Unit of Life - 3 - Question 21

Vacuole in a plant cell is membrane bound and contains water and excretory substance. Vacuole is a space within the cytoplasm of living cell that is filled with air, water or other liquid, cell sap or food particles. In plant cells, there is usually one large vacuole bounded by a single layered membrane (tonoplast or vacuole membrane); animal cells usually have several small vacuoles.

Plasmodesmata are:

[2009]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Cell: The Unit of Life - 3 - Question 22

Plasmodesmata are connections between adjacent cells. Plasmodesmata are narrow channels that act as intercellular cytoplasmic bridges to facilitate communication and transport of materials between plant cells. Plasmodesmata are formed during cell division, when traces of the endoplasmic reticulum become caught in the new wall that divides the parent cell.

Middle lamella is composed mainly of:

[2009]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Cell: The Unit of Life - 3 - Question 25

Middle lamella is mainly composed of calcium pectate. Calcium is deposited in plants cell walls during their formation - it is required for the stability and function of cell membranes and acts as a type of ‘cementing agent’ in the cell walls in the form of calcium pectate’. Calcium pectate is like a glue binding adjacent cells together so if inadequate calcium is not transported during cell formation, tissues become less stable and prone to disintegration.
