You are free to take this quiz based on X core promoter element 1 at any time.

To improve your score, read and study the lecture, the links contained within, listed under See also, External links, and in the {{gene project}} template. This should give you adequate background to get 100 %.

As a "learning by doing" resource, this quiz helps you to assess your knowledge and understanding of the information, and it is a quiz you may take over and over as a learning resource to improve your knowledge, understanding, test-taking skills, and your score.

A suggestion is to have the lecture available in a separate window.

To master the information and use only your memory while taking the quiz, try rewriting the information from more familiar points of view, or be creative with association.

Enjoy learning by doing!

A proof-of-concept structure, including a control group, consists of

, procedures, findings, and


2 True or False, A dominant group regarding the X core promoter element 1 differs from a control group in that it rules the treatment of the control group.


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

4 True or False, The X core promoter element 1 (XCPE1) is located in the distal promoter.


5 Which of the following is not a transcriptional characteristic of the XCPE1?

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

6 True or False, A control group may be used for XCPE1 to demonstrate no effect or a standard effect versus a novel effort applied to a treatment group.


7 Which of the following are phenomena associated with the XCPE1?

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

8 True or False, XCPE1 is found in the promoter regions of about 1% of human genes.


9 Evidence that demonstrates that a model or idea with respect to XCPE1 versus a control group is feasible is called a


10 True or False, Pure XCPE1 involves no doing apart from itself.


11 Complete the text:

A short or

realization of a certain

or idea to

a treament's feasibility with respect to XCPE1 is called a proof of


12 True or False, The purpose of a treatment group for XCPE1 is to describe natural processes or phenomena for the first time relative to a control group.


Hypotheses edit

  1. A1BG is not transcribed using the X core promoter element 1.
