The reason that there are Okazaki fragments during DNA replication is ultimately because:A) Some parts of the chromosome are made of RNA and different polymerases have to be used
B) Polymerases can only synthesize in the 5' to 3' direction
C) There are only enough dNTP's to support quick replication on one strand, so the other strand lags behind it
D) It is necessary to "slow down" one of the strands so that replication does not occur before cells have a chance to grow

Answers

Answer 1
Answer:

Answer:

B) Polymerases can only synthesize in the 5' to 3' direction

Explanation:

The leading strand's directionality is 3' to 5', so polymerase has no problem with replicating this one. But the lagging strand has the opposite directionality, so the polymerase must work in the opposite direction of the replication fork.In consequence, the replication process undergoes periodic breaks, and the enzymes have to stop and start again while helicase separates both strands, resulting in the polymerization of okazaki fragments.

When natural waters become overloaded with plant nutrients, such as nitrates and phosphates, they become _______________.

Answers

Answer:

Eutrophic.

Explanation:

Eutrophication is defined as the when natural water becomes overly enriched with nitrates and phosphates containing fertilizers, and detergents which induced excessive amount of algae in water. The process of eutrophication may result in water body oxygen depletion.

Example of eutrophication are algal bloom, and great increase of phytoplankton population which increased levels of nutrients in water body.

Polyester will absorb KOH True False

Answers

Answer: false

Explanation: Polyester is hydrophobic. For this reason, polyester fabrics don't absorb perspiration, or other fluids, leaving the wearer with a moist, clammy feel. Polyester fibers typically have a low level of wicking. Relative to cotton, polyester is stronger, with a greater ability to stretch

Steve has had a stroke and comes to you for follow-up today. On examination you find that he has increased muscle tone, some involuntary movements, an abnormal gait, and a slowness of response in movements. He most likely has involvement of which of the following? A) The corticospinal tract
B) The cerebellum
C) The cerebrum
D) The basal ganglia

Answers

Answer:

D) The basal ganglia

Explanation:

Basal ganglia is located at the base of forebrain and the top of midbrain. It is involved in many functions because it is connected to many parts of the brain like thalamus and cerebral cortex. One of the functions of basal ganglia is to control the voluntary movements of the skeletal muscles.

Damage to basal ganglia can disturb the muscles causing involuntary movements, abnormal gait and increased muscle tone. For example, muscle tone is the tension in skeletal muscles caused due to minor involuntary contractions. Substantia nigra part of basal ganglia is responsible for controlling it. If it is damaged, muscle tone can increase which will cause unnecessary tension in skeletal muscles leading to uncontrolled movements.
