- Homework Statement:
- Relevant Equations:
A) As in RTK signalling in which Raf-MEK-ERK are bound to KSR, they are close enough and in proper orientations to transduce the signal faster than when they are not in a complex. So A is correct.
B) Correct. Because to cross-link with other signalling pathways the kinases have to dissociate first, which is not happening in this case.
C) I don't understand how being associated or not associated with a scaffolding protein might influence signal amplification.
D) This statement is the opposite of B and is correct, and in this case, the kinases are free to interact with other signalling proteins.
The correct answer is C.
