    The only thing I'm sure of is that the primary structure will be altered, so it cannot be D for sure.

    Where is this question from? :0

    Just found the answer. It's C.
    But that implies the quarternary structure isn't altered (if primary is altered, wont't quarternary also be altered?)

    Its a Cambridge AS paper
    (I had many doubts in it)

    Yea, if the primary structure is altered, pretty much every other structure will also get altered. Wonder why quaternary structure is unchanged :confused:

    Not really sure. Have you tried the Jan 2013 paper yet?
    They probably may not repeat any big topics already covered in that paper.

    I think the reason the quaternary structure isn't altered is because many proteins only have a quaternary structure if they have more than one polypeptide chain. On this question they only talk about one so you assume that the protein doesn't have a quaternary structure. As a result only the primary, secondary and tertiary structure is altered. I'm not entirely sure if this is correct tho

    A plaque is a hardened atheroma

    Oh, so basically an atheroma is just fatty deposits before they harden, and once they harden, they are referred to as plaque?

    Yup, an atheroma is a fatty deposit. Eventually calcium salts and fibrous tissue builds up around the atheroma causing it to harden. This hardened atheroma is a plaque.

    Hey guys hows everyone feeling about this exam?
    Can someone answer the following questions for me, struggling a bit on the topic of tissue fluid.

    Explain how the structure of a capillary is related to the formation of tissue fluid? (3)

    Suggest why proteins are present in the plasma but are not normally present in tissue fluid (2)

    Tissue fluid is reabsorbed back into capillaries as a result of the osmotic effect of the plasma proteins. Suggest why this reabsorption is reduced in a person on a protein deficient diet.(2)
