Homework Help: Biochem practice exam help - Test tomorrow

  1. Apr 1, 2008 #1
    Hi all. I have a biochem test tomorrow, and would like some help. I went through the practice exam that was given to us, and from past experience the real test and practice test tend to be very similar. Also, from past experience, I tend to get a couple of them wrong because I believe that I have the right answer, but apparently not. So, I was wondering if someone could look over my work for me?

    I scanned in the exam, so to save room, I'll just link to the pictures.

    10 matching questions, there are a couple that I just sort of guessed at.
    For #8, I just assumed that since glucose ultimately begins glycolysis that an excess amount of it would cause glycolysis to speed up (which would possibly positively regulate PFK)
    For #3, the last chemical that was left on the list (aside from ATP and friends) was Dinitrophenol, so I thought it was the only one that could irreversibly inhibit citrate synthase.

    7 multiple choice questions which, again, I'm not sure on 2.

    7 Fill in the blank. There's one question that asks for the 5 vitamins of the alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase enzyme complex, and the only one that I could find for sure was Thiamine.

    2 math problems. One dealing with calculating required kcal/day. I'm pretty sure I did this right. One is asking to calculate the deltaG' for ATP hydrolysis with concentrations. Here I'm not sure what I should use for T and what all the different reactions are.

    Calculating deltaG'º, I'm positive I got this right since it closely matches the value in the book.

    Diagram for going from 2-phosphogylcerate to pyruvate in glycolysis and any differences for gluconeogenesis. Again, I'm positive this is correct since i just checked it with the figures in the book.

    Krebb's cycle fun. I got the conversion correct, but I want to double check that I kept the right carbon "radiolabled"

    Thank you! I know this is a lot to ask.
