I will NOT limit questions on the test to the content of this guide.Any information discussed in class relevant to these chapters may appear on the exam. Other resources to help you prepare for exam 3 include: quizzes 3 and 4, connect questions, questions at the ends of chapters, questions in the free online learning center (see syllabus) and the TILT study group. CHAPTER 16 1. Describe functions of the urinary system. 
 Excretion of metabolic waste, maintain water- salt balance, maintain acid-base balance (pH of around 7.4) , activate vitamin D to promote calcium absorption, Renin (enzyme) that leads to the secretion of aldosterone, Erythropoietin which stimulates red blood cell production 2. Define or describe: kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, afferent arteriole, efferent arteriole, glomerulus, Bowman’s capsule, proximal convoluted tubule, loop of the nephron, distal convoluted tubule, collecting duct, filtration, tubular reabsorption, tubular secretion, erythropoietin, diuretic, pyelonephritis, kidney stones, bladder stones, bladder infection, lithotripsy, ammonia, urea, uric acid, creatinine. 
 Kidneys- produce urine Uterers- transports urine Urinary Bladder-stores urine Urethra- passes urine to the outside Afferent arteriole- leads into the the glomerulus Efferent arteriole- How blood leaves the glomerulus Glomerulus- Another name for Bowman’s capsule (below) Bowman’s capsule- Cuplike structure that contains cells called podocytes that form pores for passage of small molecules Proximal convoluted tubule- Cuboidal epithelial cells with microvilli for reabsorption. Glucose should be returned to the blood stream not passed through urine Loop of the nephron- (Loop of Henle) is a U shaped tube made of simple squamous epithelium Distal convoluted tubule- designed for tubular secretion with numerous mitochondria because of the need forATP and lacks microvilli Collecting duct- last portion of the kidney Filtration- The first process of urine. Results in glomerular filtrate Tubular reabsorption- nutrient and salt molecules are activley reabsorbed from the convoluted tubules into the peritubular capillary network, and water flows passively Tubular secretion- Certain molecules (H+ and penicillin) are actively secreted from the peritubular capillary network into the convoluted tubules. Erythropoietin- stimulates red blood cell production Diuretic- Increases flow of urine Pyelonephritis- Infections of the kidney.Associated with Hemolytic uremic syndrome which is e. coli & is more common in children than adults. Kidney stones- “stones” composed of substances such as calcium, phosphate, uric acid, and protein that can be caused by excess animal protein diet, imbalanced urinary pH, or urinary tract infections. Can be treated with Lithotripsy. Bladder stones- Occur as a result of bladder infections or phosphate enlargement (males only). Could be kidney stones that were carried to the bladder. Can be treated with Lithotripsy. Bladder infection- Bladder of the infection. Females are at increased risk because of the shorter urethra. Lithotripsy- breaking up of the stone (bladder or kidney) so it is small enough to pass Ammonia- toxic to cells. Somce ammonia is excreted as ammonium Urea- primary nitrogenous end product of metabolism Uric acid- an accumulation that can crystalize and collect in the joints that cause gout Creatinine- creatine phosphate 3. How do antidiuretic hormone and aldosterone help to maintain water-salt balance in the human body? 
 Antidiuretic hormone- secreted by the pituitary gland and increases reabsorption of water so less water is lost in urine Aldosterone- secreted by the adrenal glands and promotes excretion of potassium ions and reabsorption of sodium ions. Reabsorption of water is based on the reabsorption of sodium 4. The excretion of hypertonic urine is dependent on: 1) 2) 3) see p 302. 
 1. Reabsorption of salt 2. Establishment of a solute gradient dependent on salt and urea before 3. Water is reabsorbed 5. What happens if there are elevated levels of H+ ions in the blood? 
 Stimulation of the respiratory system— increased breathing rate, the kidneys may excrete more hydrogen ions 6. Beginning with blood entering the nephron by way of the afferent arteriole, describe processes leading to urine formation. 
 1. Water, salts, nutrient molecules, and waste move from the glomerulus to the inside of the glomerular capsule. These small molecules are called the glomerular filtrate. 2. Tubular Reabsorption— Nutrient and salt molecules are activley reabsorbed from the convoluted tubules into the peritubular capillary network and water flows passively. 3. Tubular Secretion— certain molecules (H+ and penicillin) are actively secreted from the peritubular capillary network into the convoluted tubules 7. Beverages containing alcohol and caffeine will cause an increase in urine output. This urine is more dilute, why? 
 Because it inhibits the secretion ofADH 8. How can diuretics lower blood pressure? 
 Inhibit active transport of sodium at the loop of nephron or the distal convoluted tube 9. When might glucose spill into the urine? Why does glucose not normally spill into the urine? 
 10. How does the excretory system contribute to homeostasis? 
 Excretion of ions help maintain the water salt balance and keep the acid base balance in the blood CHAPTER 17 11. Define or describe: central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, neurons, neuroglia, cell body, dendrites, axon, myelin, gray matter, white matter, neurotransmitters, acetylcholine, synaptic cleft, reflex, somatic nervous system, autonomic nervous system, sympathetic nervous system, parasympathetic nervous system, fight or flight, rest and digest,Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, MS, ALS, prions, mad cow disease, kuru, meningitis. Central nervous system (CNS)- Brain and spinal cord Peripheral nervous system (PNS)- consists of nerves that carry sensory messages to the CNS and motor commands from the CNS to muscles and glands Neurons- transmit nerve impulses Neuroglia- support and nourish neurons Cell body- compact areas that contains nucleus and surrounding cytoplasm not the axons or dendrites Dendrite- receive information from other neurons Axon- path that the signal travels on the terminals from the detrites Myelin- covers some axons to speed up the communications Gray matter- contains cell bodies and short, non-myelinated fibers (axons). Found on the surface layer of the brain and central part of the spinal cord White matter- contains myelinated axons that run in tracts. Found deep in the brain and surrounds grey matter in spinal cord Neurotransmitters- Excitatory- increase the probability of an action potential. Inhibitory- stop action potential Acetylcholine- Aneurotransmitter that is excitatory Synaptic cleft- The tiny space between two neurons Reflex- Autonomic responses to a stimulus Somatic nervous system- skin, skeletal muscles, and tendons Autonomic nervous system- Controls involuntary movements Sympathetic nervous system- Especially required during emergency situations. Inhibits the digestive tract. Parasympathetic nervous system- Promotes all internal responses Fight or flight- Associated with the sympathetic nervous system. Hormones in the sympathetic system result in increased heart rate, increased urine production, dilation of pupils and lungs, and increased glucose. Rest or digest- Associated with the parasympathetic nervous system. Includes the formation of urine. Alzheimer’s disease- Most common form of dementia. Brain cells have a formation of plaque around the axons. First symptom is short term memory loss. Parkinson disease- Gradual loss of motor control. Caused by a degeneration of dopamine producing neurons. First symptom is shaking. MS- Autoimmune disease. White blood cells attack myelin found in the brain and eventually neurons in the CNS. ALS- Affects the motor nerves of the spinal cord.Also called Lou Gehrig’s disease, there is not treatment or cure. The brain is still fully functioning but the body is not.An example of this is Dr. Steven Hawking. Prions- infectious proteins. Causes holes in the brain tissue. They replicate and accumulate in the brain tissue. No treatment. Mad cow disease- fatal disease caused by prions that alter and destroy nervous systme tissue in the brain and spinal cord. Kuru- caused by prions binding together and forming lumps in the brain. Contracted by eating an infected brain (practicing cannibalism) Meningitis- An infection of the meninges that surround the brain and spinal cord. Caused by bacteria and viruses. Diagnoses confirmed by a spinal tap. College students are at the highest risk for being infected. 12. Describe the maintenance of the resting potential. What happens during a resting potential? 
 When the axon is not conducting and impulse. Inside the axon is negative compared to the outside. Due to the unequal distribution of ion (sodium and potassium) across the membrane. 13. What is an action potential? What changes in the plasma membrane cause an action potential? See fig 17.4 
 Rapid change in polarity across the membrane as an impulse occurs. Depolarization occurs when the Na+ gates open and Na+ being to move inside the axon. 14. Describe the transmission of a nervous impulse across a synapse, including the ++ role of Ca ions, neurotransmitter vesicles, synaptic cleft, and neurotransmitter receptors 
 Ca++ ions enters and synaptic vesicles fuse with the presynaptic membrane. Neurotransmitter vesicles carry the neurotransmitter to where it can be connected with a receptor. Synaptic cleft is the tiny space between neurons because they don’t ever physically touch. Depending on the receptor and neurotransmitter the can be excitatory and inhibitory toward action potential. 15. How might prescription or illegal drugs affect neurotransmitters? see figure 17.18 
 Stimulants increase neuron excitation, depressants decrease neuron excitation. 1. Cause the release of a neurotransmitter (NT) from a synaptic vesicle into the axon terminal 2. Prevent the release of a NT 3. Promote the release of a NT 4. Prevent the re-uptake of a NT (dopamine) 5. Block enzymatic breakdown of a NT 6. Mimic the action of a NT by binding to a receptor 16. List and describe the 3 types of neurons. 
 Sensory neurons- sensory receptors Motor neurons- skeletal muscles Other motor neurons- smooth muscle, cardiac muscle, glands 17. In what direction does an action potential proceed? Which direction is a nerve impulse conducted..........towards or away from the cell body? 
 18. Figs 17. 7 and 17.17 (In 17.17, don’t need to know effects on specific organs, just, in general, the overall effects of each system). 
 Sympathetic- speeds up heart rate, inhibits salivation, dilates pupils, inhibits tears, dilates air passages, stimulates glucose release, decreases intestinal activity, inhibits urination, causes orgasmic contractions Parasympathetic- stimulates tears, constricts pupils, stimulates salivation, constricts bronchioles, increases activity in stomach and pancreas, increases intestinal activity, stimulates urination, causes erection of genitals 19. How does myelin in the PNS differ from myelin in the CNS? What disease affects the CNS myelin? PNS- acts as an insulator, important for nerve regeratoin, formed by Schwann cells (neuroglia) CNS- Myelin is formed by oligodendroglial cells (oligodendrocytes), little nerve regeneration in the CNS Multiple Sclerosis (MS) CHAPTER 20 20.

Exocrine gland- Secrete their products through ducts ex. Salivary glands Target cell- cells with receptors that bind to specific hormone Peptide hormone- receptor is found on the surface of the cell Steroid hormone- receptor is inside the cell either in the nucleus or the cytoplasm Negative feedback- keeps homeostasis close to a set point Positive feedback- change brings about greater change in the same direction rather than returning to homeostasis Pituitary gigantism- excess growth hormone is produced during childhood Acromegaly- excess growth hormone during adulthood. Long bones can no longer grow so the effect is noticeable in features like hands, feet, and facial bones. Cushing syndrome- excess production ofACTH (usually by a tumor). Fat is mainly deposited to the midsection. Hypothyroidism- Not enough secretion of thyroid hormones. Children can suffer neurological, intellectual, and motor impairment.Adults can suffer lethargy, weight gain, hair loss, puffy skin, and slowed heart rate. Cretinism- condition of stunted physical and mental growth. Usually due to maternal hypothyroidism that goes untreated in the child.

Oviducts (fallopian tubes)-have fingerlike fimbriae to conduct the ova Uterus- also known as the womb, it houses the developing fetus Cervix- contains opening to uterus Zygote- first cell after the sperm and egg are together. Continue to divide until it is a multi- cellular embryo Implantation- When the blastocyst (multicellular ) connect to the wall of the uterus Endometrium- mucus membrane that lines the inside of the uterus (womb) Vagina- receives penis during sexual intercourse, serves as birth canal and as the exit for menstrual flow Pap smear- screening that detects cervical cancer and other precancerous changes in the cervix. 28. Compare and contrast spermatogenesis and oogenesis? 
 They both are the maturation of the sex cell. Spermatogenesis matures the sperm cell and oogenesis is the production of the egg cell. 29. List the site of production, target and function of the following hormones: GnRH, FSH, LH, testosterone, estrogen and progesterone.

 Follicular phase- FSH and LH levels are low and the follicle is developing into a mature follicle. Ovulation- FSH and LH levels are peaking (day 14) Luteal Phase- FSH and LH levels return to lower levels and there is an early corpus luteum and regressing corpus luteum toward the end. Menstruation- arteries that supply the endometrium (uterine lining) constrict thereby weakening the capillaries. Shedding of the uterine lining. Proliferative phase- Progesterone levels are lower than estrogen. Ovulation occurs at the end of this phase. Secretory phase- Estrogen and progesterone levels are higher and the endometrium is filled with blood 33. Define or describe: follicle, primary oocyte, secondary oocyte, corpus luteum, ovulation, HCG.
