Myostatin Mutations : Muscle wasting and weakness are among the most common inherited and acquired disorders and include the muscular dystrophies, cachexia, and age-related wasting. Since there is no generally accepted treatment to improve muscle bulk and strength, these conditions pose a substantial burden to patients as well as to public health. Consequently, there has been considerable interest in a recently described inhibitor of muscle growth, myostatin, or growth/differentiation factor 8 (GDF-8), which belongs to the transforming growth factor beta-superfamily of secreted proteins that control the growth and differentiation of tissues throughout the body. The myostatin gene is expressed almost exclusively in cells . . .

Beware of Friday the Thirteenth. 

Those who know about these things, inform us that 
   
Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden on a Friday, 
    Noah's flood started on a Friday, and 
    Christ was crucified on a Friday. 

    Christians also noted that twelve witches plus one devil 
            are present at Satanic ceremonies,

    so Friday and 13 make a deadly combination.

   41)    The lumen of the endoplasmic reticulum at any point in time contains (I) proteins destined to be secreted and others (II) to be
RETAINED  released in the endoplasmic reticulum.  For these two groups (I and II) you expect ?
    a) The proteins in Group I to have a signal sequence recognized by SRP, but not those in Group II
    b) Both proteins to have a signal sequence recognized by SRP

    c) The proteins in Group II but not Group I to have a sequence that bonds to a receptor specifying retention in the
              endoplasmic reticulum.
    d) a  and  c  apply                                e) b  and c apply
