1 Possible Wrong Answer in Text Book on Tue Jan 19, 2010 6:36 pm

Hi all,

I came across a possible wrong answer in our hematology text. Maybe others can check it out a verify it?

In the Review Questions for Chapter 6, The correct answer given for question #9 is D (page 736). But I think the correct answer is actually C.

Anyways check it out if you're interested, I could be wrong.

2 ribosome question on Tue Jan 19, 2010 6:56 pm


Yes, I think you are right; however, the golgi complex does modify and control ribosome synthesis by giving the free ribosomes function,usually by adding glycoproteins. I would say both?

Hey, Justin,

You are absolutely correct, Justin. On page 53, under Nucleoli, it states very clearly that it is the site of ribosome synthesis. I cross checked this against our histo text and my old anatomy text, and both agree almost word for word, so that 's good enough for me!

The answer should be C nucleolus. cheers
The golgi complex is basically a processing plant. Newly synthesized membrane proteins as well as secretory and lysosomal proteins, leave the ER and enter the golgi complex at the cis...pass through the stack to the trans. As they progress along, proteins that were originally synthesized in the RER are modified. The most common method is glycosylation.

Unfortunately Rolling Eyes there are other errors in the text book review questions in other chapters. Please keep that in mind.
