Quiz zum Vortrag

  1. It requires ribonucleotide reductase.
  2. It starts with ribonucleoside monophosphates.
  3. It produces dTTP from dCTP.
  4. Ribonucleotide reductase requires one water molecule to convert from its reduced form to an oxidized form.
  5. It requires the enzyme ribonucleotide hydroxylase.
  1. It has allosteric sites on the large subunit.
  2. It has a small subunit called R1.
  3. The small subunit has three allosteric sites.
  4. The large subunit has three allosteric sites.
  5. The large subunit has a tyrosine which is important in the reaction mechanism.
  1. It involves the transfer of electrons through sulfhydryls.
  2. It requires a phenylalanine radical.
  3. It involves the donation of electrons to the enzyme from the ribonucleotide.
  4. The reduced form of RNR has a hydroxyl radical that is important for the reaction mechanism.
  5. The reduction of sulfhydryl is necessary to generate the oxidized form of RNR.
  1. Reduced thioredoxin
  2. Oxidized thioredoxin
  3. Radicalized tyrosine
  4. Oxidized tyrosyl radicals
  5. Reduced tyrosyl radicals
