    Which of the following is the best explanation for the fact that most transduction pathways have multiple steps?

    A) Most of the steps were already in place because they are steps in other pathways.

    B) Multiple steps in a pathway require the least amount of ATP.

    C) Multiple steps provide for greater possible amplification of a signal.

    D) Each individual step can remove excess phosphate groups from the cytoplasm.

    E) Each step can be activated by several G proteins simultaneously.

    C) Multiple steps provide for greater possible amplification of a signal

    Why is apoptosis potentially threatening to the healthy "neighbors" of a dying cell?

    A) Cell death would usually spread from one cell to the next via paracrine signals.

    B) Lysosomal enzymes exiting the dying cell would damage surrounding cells.

    C) Released cellular energy would interfere with the neighbors' energy budget.

    D) Bits of membrane from the dying cell could merge with neighbors and bring in foreign receptors.

    E) Neighboring cells would activate immunological responses.

    B) Lysosomal enzymes exiting the dying call would damage surrounding cells

    Why has C. elegans proven to be a useful model for understanding apoptosis?

    A) The animal has as many genes as complex organisms, but finding those responsible is easier than in a more complex organism.

    B) The nematode undergoes a fixed and easy-to-visualize number of apoptotic events during its normal development.

    C) This plant has a long-studied aging mechanism that has made understanding its death just a last stage.

    D) While the organism ages, its cells die progressively until the whole organism is dead.

    E) All of its genes are constantly being expressed so all of its proteins are available from each cell.



    B) The nematode undergoes a fixed and easy-to-visualize number of apoptotic events during its normal development
