    • C.

      Cells have lost some proteins

    • D.

      Changes occur in the cell membrane

    Correct Answer
    B. Interactions with other cell types and 3D interactions are lost
    Explanation
    in vitro studies are performed with microorganisms, cells, or biological molecules outside their normal biological context.

  • 3. 

    For adherent cells, adhesion provides a signal for cells to do which of the following?

    • A.

      Grow and divide

    • B.

      Transduce differentiation signals

    • C.

      Enhance survival

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Cell adhesion is the process cells interact and attach to a surface, substrate or another cell, mediated by interactions between molecules of the cell surface.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Lentiviruses are a subclass of which virus strain?

    • A.

      Retroviruses

    • B.

      Adenoviruses

    • C.

      Adeno-associated Viruses

    • D.

      Herpes Viruses

    Correct Answer
    A. Retroviruses
    Explanation
    Lentivirus is a genus of viruses of the Retroviridae family, characterized by a long incubation period.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What cell types can lentiviral vectors infect? (Check all that apply)

    • A.

      Non-dividing cells only

    • B.

      Actively dividing cells

    • C.

      Quiescent cells

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Non-dividing cells only
    B. Actively dividing cells
    Explanation
    Lentiviruses can infect non-dividing and actively dividing cells. They are one of the most efficient methods of a gene delivery vector. The only cells lentiviruses cannot gain access to are quiescent cells (in the G0 state) because this blocks the reverse transcription step.

  • 8. 

    TrueORF Gold ORF clones are the only expression validated cDNA clones.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    TrueORF Gold is OriGene’s collection of premium cDNA clones that have passed the ultimate tests: sequence verification and protein expression validation.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What genes control transgene packaging during lentiviral transduction?

    • A.

      Vif, vpr, and vpu

    • B.

      Env, nef, and pol

    • C.

      Rev, gag, and pol

    Correct Answer
    C. Rev, gag, and pol
    Explanation
    Lentiviral vectors are derived from HIV. 3rd generation lentiviral systems have reduced the number of HIV genes required for transgene delivery to 3, rev, gag, and pol, improving the biosafety of the system.
