Q12:
there is no real treatment of Smallpox. The only thing you can do is quarantine the infected.....and as for the exposed, give them the vaccine and quarantine them as well. The only way of preventing further spread is by immunizing all possible people that could spread the infection.


Q29:
In the ER proteins undergo posttranslational modifications that prepare them for whatever role they are chosen for. If you look under the section of protein synthesis in FA there is a small section right below it called postranslational modifications. Trimming is one of the key components which is why these proteins are a shorter length. There is removal of N- or C-terminal propeptides from zymogens to generate mature proteins. So the best answer that fits is A.

Qs 20 even without troubling the diagram we know that it is not D as all children are not affected ...
not A as trinucleotide repeat not involved ..

now looking at the diagram we now that the defect arise from the B,d pair from the father becoz its the common one in both the affected children ...
its not AR as had B, d alone from the father cannot cause the disease in AR could have been AD but its not in our options so now we are basically left with C ..

now even if one pair of alleles are defective the other two can manage the function without the defect, but if random inactivation of the pairs from the mother occur it leads to defects as the pair from the fathers side are defective . both the pairs from the mother are not defective otherwise the mother would also have the disease ... its seen that the third child ( one that is not affected ) also has b, f but has no defect as it is managed by a,a ... so its genomic imprinting

Qs 22 ... the incidence of diseases is 1/2500 so q2 ( means q * q that is q square ) is = 1/2500 so q is 1/50 ... now the formulae for carrier is 2pq .. kaplan says take p as 1 for theses cases for calculation ... so 2q = carriers = 2* 1/50 which is 1/25 ....

Qs 35 benzene causes aplastic anaemia so Adipocytes the ans
