Biochem p. 13

Post by megan10 » Thu Jun 21, 2018 7:47 pm

Hi,
I am a little confused with question 5 in the Chapter 1 passage practice for the Biochem book (on page 13).

If the protein is farthest from the cytoplasm, wouldn't that be the protein closest to the surface/ outside of the cell? So then wouldn't we use figure 3 to find the protein with the lowest % buried?

Thanks,
Megan

Hi megan10,

You have great inductive reasoning skills; however, your understanding of the concept introduced isn't quite spot on. Furthest from the cytoplasm would actually imply the most % buried.

I hope that helps! If you're still confused after reviewing the question, answer and explanation for this question, feel free to reach out!
