Medical Interventions – Lesson 1.1 Study Guide 1. Which organelle is the site of protein synthesis? 2. Where is DNA located in a eukaryotic cell? 3. What is the correct bond-pairing of the bases in a DNA molecule? 4. What is the correct bond-pairing of the bases in a RNA molecule? 5. Define Translation. 6. Define Transcription. 7. Define bioinformatics. 8. Define a medical intervention. 9. List 5 examples of medical interventions you learned in this unit. 10. Define pathogen. 11. What are 3 categories of pathogens? 12. Define antigen. 13. Define antibody. 14. Describe the relationship between antigens (pathogens) and antibodies. 15. Describe the process of protein synthesis – beginning with the DNA template strand and ending with the production of a completed protein.

16. Define primer. 17. What does ELISA stand for? 18. What is the qualitative data that an ELISA test can provide? (be more specific than a color change. What does a color change indicate?) 19. What is the quantitative data that an ELISA test can provide? 20. What does the quantitative data help to determine during an outbreak? 21. What is the secondary antibody used in an ELISA test conjugated with? 22. What is the reaction that occurs when the enzyme – substrate bond is formed during an ELISA? (do not say color change – what causes the color change) 23. What is the purpose of the detergent wash buffer in an ELISA test? 24. What is the function of B cells? a. Are they the cell mediated or fluid mediated response? 25. What is the function of T cells? a. Are they the cell mediated or fluid mediated response? 26. Give an example of an over-the-counter ELISA test. 27. What, specifically, does the disease meningitis infect? 28. How is Neisseria Meningitidis spread? 29. During an outbreak, a sample of the patient’s lymph fluid was extracted and processed to identify the DNA sequence. What was the next step we took to identify the pathogen?
