    Is used to detect the presence of maltose
  38. Sequence of steps in an ELISA
    Antigen, serum, antibody-linked enzyme, substrate
  39. Purpose of the enzyme linked to the antibody
    It catalyzes the conversion of a colorless substrate to a colored product
  40. Spatial summation
    increases the number of motor units in muscle contractions
  41. Temporal Summation
    increases the rate of stimulus in muscle contractions
  42. Tentanization
    A steady state of contraction when muscles are stimulated at high frequencies
  43. Four events of a muscle twitch
  44. Stimulus
    • Latent period
    • Contraction
    • Relaxation
  45. How is the release of thyroxine controlled
  46. It is controlled by the pituitary gland which secretes TSH.  This is carried by the blood to the thyroid gland and causes the thyroid to produce more thyroxine.
  47. Catabolism
  48. Breaking up coumpounds
  49. Anabolisim
    generating complex compounds amino acids
  50. Function of estrogen and where it’s produced
  51. Produced in the ovariesEstrogen enables the endometrium of the uterus to grow and develop so that the uterus may receive fertilized eggs for implantation
  52. Function of insulin
  53. It is vital to the regulation of blood glucose levels because it enables the body’s cells to absorb glucose from the bloodstream
  54. Type I Diabetes Mellitus
    body does not make insulin.

    Autoimmune-mediated destruction of insulin producing beta cells in the pancreas resulting in absolute insulin deficiency.
  55. Type II Diabetes Mellitus
    body makes insulin but does not respond to it. it is unable to be absorbed through the cells.
  56. Systolic
    120 mm Hg
  57. diastolic
    80 mm Hg

    The lowest pressure of the larger arteries during ventricular relaxation
  58. hypertension
    When the diastolic pressure remains elevated, above 90 to 100 mm Hg
  59. Cardiac output
  60. Cardiac output is not divided evenly among the areas of the body
  61. Blood typing
    • Type A: has A antigens, creates Anti-B antibody, agglutinate with A antiserum.
    • Type B: has B antigents, creates Anti-A antibody, agglutinate with B antiserum.
    • Type AB: has A & B antigens, Crates no antibodyagglutinate with a & b antiserum.
    • Type O:  has no antigens, Creates both A & B antibodies, agglutinates with neither.

  72. H+ ions readily combine non-enzymatically with bicarbonate ions that are available in the blood to form
    carbonic acid
  73. carbonic anhydrase is produced in the ____ & _____ and triggers_________to convert ______________________________________
    carbonic anhydrase is produced in the RBC and the kidney tubule cells.  It triggers Carbonic Acid  to convert to water by binding the H+ ions into a molecule with a pH of 7 and CO2 that is eliminated during expiration from the lungs.
  74. Bicarbonate reaction.
    •                               Carbonic anhydrase 
    • H+(+)HCO3-<-->H2CO3<-->H2O+CO2
