    A mutation results in a cell that no longer produces a

    normal protein kinase for the M phase checkpoint. Which of thefollowing would likely be the immediate result of this mutation?

    A) The cell would prematurely enter anaphase.

    B) The cell would never leave metaphase.

    C) The cell would never enter metaphase.

    D) The cell would never enter prophase.

    E) The cell would undergo normal mitosis, but fail to enter thenext G1 phase.



    E) The cell would undergo normal mitosis, but fail to enter the next G1 phase.


    The correct answer should be B) The cell would never leave metaphase.
    The M-Phase checkpoint, when passed, triggers the start of anaphase. If the checkpoint fails then there can be no anaphase, meaning that E is incorrect.

    D) The amount of Cdk 2 is greatest during G1.

    E) The activity of the cyclin E/Cdk 2 complex is highest duringG.



    C) The amount of cyclin E is highest during G1.
