#48
lateral group of neurons supply the limb musculature
medial group supplies the axial muscles.

#33
external validity means the ability to generalize the results of a study. As the researchers are recommending to use the registry method(based on their study results) so the study must have external validity to do so!

The online and offline has the same questions even the block number is the same. The only difference is the order of the questions. You have to find the answers of the offline and you will be able to find out the answers of the online.

Number 37 : Fc Receptor because actually mothers IgG is transfered to the placenta. Other options do not make any sense.

Number 41: How I came to the conclusion. Well through exclusion of the other options to be very frank. It is definitely a lesion of the cerebellur fibers coming from the Hemisphere. So, it cant be the vermis option C as it controls the axial skeleton and it cant be E which I think is the flocculonodular lobe(I think so). Can anyone else help us with this question?!

Default NBME 12 Block 2 #33

#33.

- I know B is wrong.
- It looks like ans. A. Budding is right.

#43.

- ans: D. Phosphorylation of the enzyme
- b/c serine is usually the phosphorylation site for lots of signaling pathway. like MAPK. INSULINE().- the question is testing u on phosphorylation de phosphorylation of serine residues in cytoplasmic enzymes (EX: Glycogen phosphorylase) so here mutation has replaced serine with alanine so no serine no phosphorylation no activation of that enzyme

hey so i have a question about block 1: 29...i thought since both of them are isoenzymes their km values can't change....since km is the substrate affinity and vmax represents how fast the enzymes can catalyze the reaction...so i picked E and was wondering if there is something i missing

thanks in advance for the replies

Default Km and Vmax are totally independent variables

NBME 12 Block 1 #29

- ans. A. The Km cannot be predicted based solely on the value of Vmax.

- Km and Vmax are totally independent variables.

- The Km should not be dependent on the Vmax:

Vo = (Vmax*[S])/(Km + [S])
1/2 Vmax = (Vmax*[S])/(Km + [S])
Km + [S] = 2[S]
Km = [S]

- Both of the Vmax variables get crossed out when you solve the Michaelis-Menten equation, so it shouldn't matter what the Vmax is.

I wish you guys had discussed only Block 1 here, that would have been way easier to follow

anyway, somebody please explain these things to me.

BLOCK 1
18- does that mean he has CO poisoning???? but how?? from where?? and how come other people at his house dont have it????

38- the child is autistic isnt he?? so how can we say he's normal?

48- ok so its supposed to be anterior horn cells but what's F then?? F and G both seem to be in the anterior horn!

somebody please explain. Thanx

external validity means the ability to generalize the results of a study. As the researchers are recommending to use the registry method(based on their study results) so the study must have external validity to do so!

Looking at the image you are trying to count the number of prevailing cases. The last vertical line has 4 horizontal lines that did not end with a bullet point, this indicates a prevailing case.

The answer is Choice (C) 4.

Looking at the Cross Section. Choice (F) indicates the trunk muscles, the medial motor neurons. As we head out laterally we are going to Choice (G), which involves the Hands, intrinsic muscles.

Remember PAS detects glycolipids, glycoproteins, polysaccharides.
The image and history of a kid, points to Minimal Change, which involves oval fat bodies called lipoid nephrosis which happens to stain PAS. Choice (F)

She has diverticulitis and was treated promptly wit iv antibiotics. Now you should suggest a diet rich in fibers to relieve the constipation that most likely caused her to have diverticulosis in the first place.

The answer is B
I'm not sure of the real explanation but a friend told me it's because the mutation in choice B would form ATT which corresponds to UAA (a stop codon on mRNA). I would love to hear a definite explanation though.
