Reuptake: Quiz


Question 1: Later experiments indicated that a ________ amino acid is highly conserved across transport proteins, and was shown to be essential for substrate binding and transport[3].

Question 2: Astrocytes use GLT-1 to remove ________ from the synapse.
Glutamic acidGlutamineDizocilpineNitrous oxide

Question 3: ________ and Chloride ion dependence will be discussed later in the mechanism of action.

Question 4: Reuptake, or re-uptake, is the reabsorption of a neurotransmitter by a neurotransmitter transporter of a pre-synaptic ________ after it has performed its function of transmitting a neural impulse.
Nervous systemGlial cellPhotoreceptor cellNeuron

Question 5: Other important features include function specific positions in the transmembrane section 1, where an aspartate differentiates between monoamine substrates and a glycine differentiates between ________ substrates[3].
Amino acid synthesisL-DOPAAmino acidMetabolism

Question 6: Reuptake is necessary for normal synaptic physiology because it allows for the recycling of ________ and regulates the level of neurotransmitter present in the synapse and controls how long a signal resulting from neurotransmitter release lasts.

Question 7: After separate investigations had sequenced the DNA that coded for both GABA transporter and ________ transporter, it could be seen that there were many similarities between the two DNA sequences.

Question 8: [2] examined how ________ act upon a reuptake protein in order to inhibit reuptake of the appropriate neurotransmitters.
Tetracyclic antidepressantAmitriptylineTricyclic antidepressantTrimipramine

Question 9: The main objective of a ________ is to substantially decrease the rate by which neurotransmitters are reabsorbed into the presynaptic neuron, leaving a net gain in the concentration of neurotransmitter in the synapse.
Dopamine reuptake inhibitorNorepinephrine reuptake inhibitorNorepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitorReuptake inhibitor

Question 10: The members of this new family include ________, norepinephrine, serotonin, and GABA.
