NASC 210 Quiz: Manipulation of Life and Transhumanism

  1. A transgenic organism can be an organism which contains human genes to make human proteins which can be extracted for drug use for patients.
  2. Gene therapy is a technique which involves;
  3. Many gene therapy vectors under current use are disarmed viruses.
  4. Recombinant DNA technology has been used to make insulin. Insulin operates by;
  5. Liposomes can also be used as vectors for gene therapy. They are;
  6. Which of the following is true about EPO?
  7. Pigs cannot extract phosphorus from cereal so phosphorus is put into their diets. However this leads to excess phosphorus in their manure. This is a problem because;
  8. The CRISPR mechanism was first discovered in bacteria which use the method as host defense against viruses.
  9. EPO is a hormone which naturally increases the number of red blood cells in the blood.
  10. Which of the following living organisms have a GMO counterpart?
  11. To prepare genes which will be inserted into a patient for gene therapy which of the following steps must be done using current technology?
  12. Which of the following anatomical sites being tested or are targets for future gene therapies?
  13. Many of the early set-backs and deaths in the use of gene therapy involved;
  14. There are now GMO versions of lettuce, apples, potatoes and grapes.
  15. Which of the following is true about restriction enzymes, molecular scissors which make gene therapy possible?
  16. GMO salmon are salmon which have been genetically altered to grow faster and are grown in special aquatic enclosures to prevent them from getting in natural waterways. What are some problems which could arise from this technology?
  17. Gene silencing has been used to;
  18. cDNA is DNA which is complementary to the opposite strand of DNA from a double helix.
  19. DNA analysis and genetics testing can be done after death.
  20. Gene therapy can involve insertion of a gene into a patient to correct a defective gene.
  21. Microarray’s are used by DNA sequencing companies like 23 and Me to provide the customer with information about a predetermined set of genes or DNA sequences which they may possess because they bind to corresponding genes on the microarray.
  22. Genetic engineering is used to make a health product like insulin
  23. Which of the following is true regarding microarray structure, function and their use to relay genetic information.
  24. Gene silencing involves antisense molecules, ribozymes and RNA interference to block translation of mRNAs.
  25. CRISPR genome editing could be used to bring back extinct species.
