Your Performance  

1.

A RNA transcript (whose base sequence is complementary to that of the mRNA of a gene) that can inhibit the expression of a gene by forming a duplex with the mRNA strand is called :

  antisense RNA

  tRNA

  dsRNA

  rRNA

  Half-n-half Clue
 

2.

A segment of DNA that includes regions preceding and following the coding DNA ( introns as well as exons ) is called :

  retroposon

  transposon

  operon

  cistron

  Half-n-half Clue
 

3.

The base sequence of the RNA strand transcribed from a DNA strand of the sequence T-G-C-A-G-C-A-C-A is :

  A-C-G-U-C-G-U-G-U

  A-C-G-U-C-G-U-G-U

  U-G-C-A-G-C-A-C-A

  G-U-A-C-U-A-C-A-C

  Half-n-half Clue
 

4.

A base sequence that is part of the DNA of an organism and appears to have once coded a gene product, such as a protein or transcription factor but no longer does so is called :

  An Oncogene

  A jumping gene

  A pseudogene

  A selfish gene

  Half-n-half Clue
 

5.

An RNA molecule that can catalyze either its own cleavage (self-splicing) or the cleavage of other RNA molecules is :

  A chaperone enzyme.

  Half-n-half Clue
 

6.

A gene that encodes RNA that functions without being translated into a protein is called :

  An RNA gene

  AN Oncogene

  A quiet gene

  A pseudogene

  Half-n-half Clue
 

7.

Genes that are expressed at all times and under all conditions of growth are called :

  constitutive genes

  antibody genes

  chimeric genes

  regulatable genes

  Half-n-half Clue
