In an experiment on the regulation of the cell cycle, it was found that S phase cells produce a substance that, when diffused in G1 nuclei, activated DNA replication. Radioactive labeling was then used to determine which nuclei were synthesizing DNA. The results are shown in the table below. Based on this data, which radioisotope was most likely used, and in what form? Hint: Think about the structure of the molecule where synthesis is being monitored. (Table was on quiz)
A. 35S; 35S-cysteine
B. 32P; 32P-phospholipid
C. 35S; 35S-sulfate
D. 14C; 14C-carbon dioxide
E. 32P; 32P-phosphate
In meiosis, as opposed to mitosis,

D. there is no cytokinesis.
E. only two daughter cells are formed.


A. occurs only in animals.
B. is the same process as necrosis.
C. is triggered solely by signals external to the cell.
D. occurs only during development.
E. is controlled by signal transduction pathways.
