It is not an FDA-approved test for quality control of platelets? Gram Stain
Prestorage pooled platelets can be stored for: 5 days
What is most common cause of bacterial contamination of platelet products? Entry of skin plugs into the collection bag
What best describes mitosis? Genetic material is duplicated, equally divided between two daughter cells
When a recessive trait is expressed, it means that: Two genes carrying the trait were present.
In a pedigree, the "index case" is another name for: Propositus
What are the four nitrogenous bases of DNA? Adenine Cytosine Guanine Thymine
What phenotype(s) could not result from the mating of a Jk(a+b+) female and a Jk(a-b+) male? Jk(a-b-)
Exon refers to: The coding region of a gene.
PCR technology can be used to: Amplify small amounts of DNA
Transcription can be defined as: Synthesis of RNA using DNA as template.
When a male possesses a phenotypic trait that he passes to all his daughters and none of his sons, the trait is said to be: X-linked dominant
When a female possesses a phenotypic trait that she passes to all of her sons and none of her daughters, the trait is said to be: X-linked recessive
DNA is replicated to: Semiconservatively from DNA
RNA is processed: after RNA is copied from protein on ribosomes
Translation of proteins from RNA takes place: On the ribosomes in the cytoplasm of the cell
Meiosis is necessary to: Generate new DNA sequences in daughter cells
Proteins and peptides are composed of: Linear arrangements of amino acids
Patient cells with Anti-A 4+ Anti-B 4+ A1 cells NEGATIVE B cells NEGATIVE What is the patient's blood type? AB
The major immunoglobulin class of anti-B in a group A individual is: IgM
What are the possible ABO phenotypes of the offspring from the mating of a group A to group B individual? O,A,B
What ABH substance(s) would be found in the saliva of group B secretor? H and A
What ABO blood group contains the least amount of H substance? A1B
An example of a technical error that can result in an ABO discrepancy is: Cell suspension is too heavy
What best describes Lewis antibodies? IgM, naturally occuring, do not cause HDFN
The Le gene codes for a specific glycosyltransferase that transfers a fucose to the N-acetylglucosamine on: Type 1 precursor chain
What substances would be found in the saliva of a group B secretor who also has Lele genes? H,B,LeB
Transformation to Lewis B phenotype after birth may be as follows: Le(a-b-) to Le(a+b-) to Le(a+b+) to Le(a-b+)
In what way do the Lewis antigens change during pregnancy? Lewis A and B decreases
A type 1 chain has: The terminal galactose in a 1-3 linkage to subterminal N-acetylglucosamine
