  1. Anatomy
    The study of what things look like
  2. Physiology
    The study of the fuctions of body parts
  3. Define homeostasis
    A condition in which your body tends to stay at certain preset conditions. Your body has a set point where your body would ideally like to be and a normal range which is a range that your body will be okay within
  4. What are the three different parts of the feedback loop?
    • receptor-reads whether our body is in the normal range and gives that information to the control center
    • Control center-The brain reads the information given by the receptor and then tells the effector how to fix the problem
    • Effector-Plays out the game plan and actually fixes the problem
  5. In a positive feedback system, the response of the effector does what?
    a. enhances the original stimulus
    b. eliminates the original stimulus
    c. reverses the original stimulus
    d. does not change the original stimulus
    e. does not change the original stimulus
    Enhances the original stimulus
  6. Negative feedback
    Your body is going to correct the problem (something goes out of normal range but goes back to normal)
  7. Positive feedback
    This system only makes things worse (child birth, blood clots)
  8. Ion
    Something that has a charge
  9. Hydrophillic
    A substance that is capable of dissolving freely in water
  10. Explain how your body would heal a fracture.
    • -hematoma-your bone would begin to bleed
    • -callus formation-cartilage takes ends of broken bone and connects them with internal cartilage and then around that with external cartilage.
    • -callus ossification-cartilage turns to bone
    • -remodeling of bone-osteoclasts will get rid of external bumps on sides of the bone which takes a long time to do
  11. Explain what kind of bond a water molecule will form and its characteristics.
    The molecule will form a polar covalent bond and will share the electrons unequally. The hydrogens are losing an electron by allowing the oxygen's valence shell to use their electron, and because of this, the side that the hydrogens are on have a slightly positive charge and the other end has a slightly negative charge.
  12. How will water molecules bond together?
    Water molecules would form opposite of each other. This happens because the hydrogens lose electrons so they become slightly positive and the oxygen is then slightly negative. They turn side by side because opposites attract.
  13. Explain glycolysis. (First step of carbohydrate metabolism)
    Starts with glycolysis which occurs in the cytoplasm. We start with 6 carbon. We then go through pphosphorylation where you add phosphate to carbon. You then go through sugar cleavage where you divide it in two. Each half is called pyruvic acid. This produces 2 ATP, 2 pyruvic acid, and some NADH (its really 4 ATP but it takes two to get it started)
  14. Explain what happens after glycolysis.
    The pyruvic acid moves to the mitochondria where the citric acid cycle occurs. As the pyruvic acid travels it goes through a series of reactions where it turns into Acetyl CoA. (This is the only thing that can go through the citric acid cycle) Through this process we creat 2 more ATP, 8 NADH, and 2 FADH2.
  15. Explain what happens after the citric acid cycle
    We then take the hydrogen off of the NADH and are left with a very high energy electron. The electron goes through a series of doors where the mitochondria slowly steals away its energy in the electron transport chain. We are left with a very sluggish electron where oxygen is the final electron acceptor.

  78. Describe the process of protein synthesis. (Essay)
    There are two parts of protein synthesis, transcription (making of mRNA) and translation (making of a protein). Thranscription has RNA polymerase come into the nucleus, find the specific gene that we are looking for and make a copy of it and create mRNA. In translation, the mRNA leaves the nucleus and moves to the active portion of the ribosome. The ribosome must read the start codon (AUG) in order to start protein synthesis. tRNA then has to come down and is the anticodon or pair for that codon (tRNA comes from the food we eat, so if we are not eating all of our amino acids, we won't have tRNA). After tRNA pairs with the codon it becomes a true amino acid where it moves to the passive site. The next codon comes in and does the same thing, along with the next. Protein synthesis stops when the active site of the ribosome reads the stop codon, which does not have an anticodon, or tRNA pair. The true amino acids then leave the ribosome from the passive site and goes to whatever part of the body needs that protein.
  79. Explain deep wound healing
    First a scab or blood clot would form. Then basophils will come in and release hystemine in order to start the inflammation process (make the blood vessels bigger and walls of capillaries more permeable so more blood and more white blood cells can come in) Then the neutrophils will come in and eat any bacteria in the wound and they die as they eat the bacteria. Macrofages then come in and get rid of anything else that should not be in the wound, including the dead neutrophils. Then fibroblasts come in and fill the remainder of the dermis to the epidermis. Then the stratum basale will break free and begin to move toward the middle until they touch and have contact inhibition. The contact inhibition will trigger the cells to go through mitosis and all the rest of the epidermis

All of the other gates will then open in succession, which is action potential, which is the electrical message. The electrical message will then travel down the muscle fiber to the t-tubule which will then tell the sarcoplasmic reticulum to release its stored calcium. The calcium then binds to the troponin which triggers the active sites to show. The myosin heads will then bind to the active sites on the actin causing our muscles to contract
