Date Created: 09/16/16 Week 4 September 12-16 th Ch 39 Gas Exchange - Animals take in oxygen and expel carbon dioxide - This is for cellular reparation that makes ATP - Oxygen and other nutrients are transported by circulation Diffusion *gas exchange over short distances under 100um Flatworms are a great example Fick’s Law of Diffusion: ???????????????? ???????? ???????????????????????????????????? − ????×????× (▯▯▯▯▯) ▯ Greatest reate of diffusion if: • Has a large surface area (A) • Surface is thin (D) • Partial pressure gradient is large Partial Pressure- the pressure of a particular gas in a mixture of gasses Bulk Flow *The physical movement of fluid and gasses over a distance; uses pumps (heart) Uses 2 steps: 1. Ventilation- movement of the animal’s respiratory medium (water or air) 2. Circulation- movement of the specialized body fluid that caries oxygen and carbon dioxide; hemolymph (invertebrates) and blood (vertebrates) VENTELATION ▯ GAS EXCHANGE ▯ CIRULATION ▯ CELLULAR REPARATION Organs for Gas Exchange Gills *outgrowths on the body surface or throat Two types: • External o Easily damaged • Internal o Made of gill arches formed by gill filaments composed of gill lamellae covered by operculum o Water must be driven over them o Ventilation by opening closing the mouth o Movement is unidirectional o Use a countercurrent exchange system Why do fish have it tough? - Oxygen is not very soluble in water - Oxygen diffuses 8000x faster in air Insect Tracheal System Tracheae- extensive system of tubes located within the insect body Spiracles- tracheae use these to connect to the exterior; can be closed to minimize water loss - Transports air close enough for diffusion so they do not require circulation Terrestrial Vertebrates - use of lungs Tidal Ventilation- when diaphragm and rib cage contract expanding the volume of the chest cavity creating a vacuum pulling air in Intercostal Muscles- assist the diaphragm by elevating the ribs on inhalation creating a larger change in volume, during exercising Tidal Volume- amount we inhale and exhale every cycle; .5 liters Lungs - Large surface area and a short diffusion distance Anatomy primary mouth larynx bronchioles alveoli bronchi Larynx- where the vocal cords are Trachea- the central airway leading to the lungs Primary Bronchi- trachea divides into two and makes one for each lung Bronchioles- can have a diameter of less than 1mm Alveoli- thin walled sacs where gas exchange by diffusion takes place Pulmonary Capillaries- small blood vessels that supple the alveolar wall Surfactant- reduces the surface tension of the fluid film made by mucus Birds - Use unidirectional airflow - Consists of two sets of air sacs - When posterior air sacs expand air from the mouth is drawn into the sacs and then pumped though the lungs - Use crosscurrent - Have a continuous supply of fresh air in the lungs during both inhalation and exhalation Carotid Body- sense oxygen concentration in the blood going to the brain Aortic Body monitor oxygen in the blood moving to the body * the brain stem monitors carbon dioxide in the blood and will stimulate motor neurons to active respiration if it is too high Oxygen Transport by Hemoglobin - Oxygen is transported by blood; hemolymph fro invertebrates - Oxygen is 30x less soluble than carbon dioxide Hemoglobin- specialized iron-containing (hem) molecule for transport - Carbon dioxide is converted to carbonic acid - Exists in large concentrations within red blood cells Hemoglobin and Myoglobin - Hemoglobin consist of four polypeptide chains; binds with heme Heme- contains iron that binds to oxygen; each hemoglobin can bind to 4 oxygen molecules - 98.5% of oxygen is bound to hemoglobin Myoglobin- found in muscle cells; binds and stores 1 oxygen - a partial-pressure difference drives oxygen from hemoglibin to tissues Oxygen Dissociation Curve- graph that plots the % saturation hemoglobin in red blood cells versus Po2 in blood with n tissues Cooperative Binding the binding of oxygen to on e subunit induces a conformation change making others do the same Bohr Shift - decreases in pH and tem helps oxygen bind - This happens usually during exercising The Circulatory System - Carries blood/hemolymph into close contact with every cell for diffusion - Made of a pump (heart), and vessels Open Circulatory System - Found in insects - Have multiple hearts How it works: 1. Hearts contract 2. Goes through the arteries 3. Dumped into the body cavity 4. Heart relaxes and creates a vacuum - Hemolyph comes in direct contact with every cell Closed Circulatory System - Continues flow through vessels - Moves by pressure created by the heart Why is this a good system: - Has a high flow rate - Can be directed to specific areas of the body - Small vessels (capillaries) creates slow flow rate to allow time for diffusion
