Bio 129 Study Guide #1 Things to remember: -Oil and water DON’T mix -Need to maintain balance; if you stop eating your breathing you’ll be unbalanced which will cause lots of issues -Antibiotic resistance= bacteria infections -Infection that happens within a hospital is difficult to treat b/c the population of the bacteria have grown up and developed there -The MOST abused drugs are antibiotics -If you stop taking an antibiotic prescribed to you before it is finished you’ll set yourself up for antibiotic resistance (you won’t get better) -Stem cells reproduce constantly -Liver makes sugar and fat (liver turns sugar into fat) -If you eat a lot of salt your body has to save a lot of water, which increases volume, which makes your blood pressure go up -When you eat something with sugar in it the liver takes it and turns it into glycogen so it’s no longer a concentration sugar molecule -Synthesis is the process of making big molecules -Degradation is the process of breaking down big molecules -Insulin is soluble in water -Glucocotorides are not soluble in water, which is why they go through the liver -Humans have to push blood against gravity to get to the head -Know the difference between parasympathetic and sympathetic -Blushing is blood going to the surface of the body -Bacteria has no internal organs and it’s genetic material is distributed through the cytoplasm -Bacteria can make proteins by themselves -Carbon forms stable covalent bonds -Iodine steals electrons to become a negative ion -Nerve cells DON’T divide -Sympathetic system responds to change (sitting to standing) -When looking at blood pressure the top number refers to the pressure from heart contraction and the bottom number represents the resistance to flow in blood in vessels -Stem cells divide to repair damage -Every cell has the same DNA -There is only one form of ATP -Liver stores and releases sugar -Your chest cavity gets larger when you breath in
