Gene transcriptions/Boxes/TATAs/Quiz

TATA box is a lecture of the gene transcription series.

TATA box structural elements are shown, where the TATA box consensus sequence is TATAWAW, where W is either A or T. Credit: Luttysar.

You are free to take this quiz based on the TATA box at any time.

2 Yes or No, The purpose of a treatment group for TATA boxes is to describe natural processes or phenomena for the first time relative to a control group.


3 Several promoter elements have been previously identified in eukaryotes, but those cannot account for transcription from most RNA polymerase II-transcribed

6 True or False, Some TATA boxes are located in the distal promoter.


7 Which of the following is not a transcriptional characteristic of TATA boxes?

located between nucleotides -8 and +2 relative to the transcriptional start site (+1)
in eukaryotes
TATA-less genes
a consensus sequence

8 True or False, A control group may be used for TATA boxes to demonstrate no effect or a standard effect versus a novel effort applied to a treatment group.


9 Which of the following are phenomena associated with TATA boxes?

transcription of A1BG
directs activator-dependent but TFIID-independent transcription
TATA box-less promoters
initiator element
mediator dependence
core promoter

10 True or False, TATA boxes are found in the promoter regions of at least 1% of human genes.


11 Evidence that demonstrates that a model or idea versus a control group is feasible for TATA boxes is called a


12 True or False, A dominant group associated with TATA boxes differs from a control group in that it rules the treatment of the control group.


Hypotheses edit

  1. A TATA box is not used to transcribe A1BG.
