Lymphocytes that activate B cells and T cells are

T helper cell (TH cells) assist other white blood cells in immunologic processes, including maturation of B cells into plasma cells and memory B cells, and activation of cytotoxic T cells and macrophages, among other functions. Activator B cells Macrophages Helper T cells Cytotoxic T cells

Which of the following cannot be formed from acetyl CoA in a single step?

acetyl-CoA + oxaloacetate + H2O ------------------------→ citrate + CoA-SH Oxaloacetate is the first substrate to bind to the enzyme. This induces the enzyme to change its conformation, and creates a binding site for the acetyl-CoA. aceto acetyl CoA Malonyl CoA citrate pyruvate

Km is equal to

The Michaelis constant Km is the substrate concentration at which the reaction rate is half of Vmax. [Vm/V= 1] [s] when V = Vm [s] when V= 0 [s] when V = I/2 Vm

Actinomycin D is an inhibitor of
