ANEQ305 Functional Large Animal Physiology Dr. Hyungchul Han 1st week notes 8-24-16 Chapter 1 – Homeostasis and Integration: The Foundations of Physiology Physiology – the study of the normal mechanical, physical, and biochemical processes of animals and plants – what maintains homeostasis in a living organism? Characteristics of living Things - Organize themselves using energy and raw materials from their metabolism o Use them in metabolism - Maintain integrity in the face of disturbances – aka homeostasis o Sweating – the evaporation of water from skin cooling down skin temp o In winter when you pee, you shiver – the heat from the liquid, pee, leaves your body so your body has to warm back up o Produce CO2, mechanical energy, heat and water from food - The ability to reproduce Physiology is an integrative discipline - Related with anatomy, physics, chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, and genetics Physiology is a comparative discipline - Comparing physiological features in different organisms Basic Functions essential for survival of the cell - Self-organization - Self- regulation - Self-support and movement - Self-replication o Exceptions  Nerve cells  Skeletal cells Examples of specialized functions of some cells - Gland cells – secrete digestive enzymes - Neurons – generate and transmit electrical impulses o Brain transmits electrical impulses while you’re reading this o 78,000,000,000 cells in the brain – Brazilian scientist counted - Kidney cells – selectively retain needed substances while eliminating unwanted substances in the urine o Keep valuable stuff like sugar and sodium – get rid of urea - Muscle cells – produce movement Levels of organizations - Chemical level - Cellular level – smallest unit capable of carrying out the processes associated with life - Tissue level – group of cells with similar structures and functions - Organ level – two or more tissues organized to perform a particular function - Body/organ system level – collection of organs that interact to accomplish a common activity - Organism level 4 types of Tissue - Epithelial tissue o Exchange of materials  Line body cavity and surface - Connective Tissue o Connects, supports and anchors different body parts  Tendons, blood, lymph - Muscular Tissue o Contraction and generation of force – causes movement - Nervous tissue o Initiation and transmission of electrical impulses  Excitatory and paralytic (relaxation) abilities  Transmits signals  Connected to muscles – causes contraction and movement 3 Basic Germ Layers - Ectoderm – outer – skin (includes neural tissue and various glands) - Mesoderm – middle – muscle, connective and plural tissues - Endoderm – inner – lungs, visceral organs, gut and liver Size and Scale among organisms - Organisms range in size from unicellular prokaryotes to large multicellular eukaryotes over a scale of 10^20 - Scaling = study of the effects of size on anatomy and physiology - All about volume to surface ratio – less surface area to volume means warmer and vice versa – larger surface area to volume means colder – o Bigger animal stays warmer easier than smaller animals o Small animals lose heat easier  Hamsters have heart beat of 450 bpm to maintain heat o Slower metabolic rate = longer life Homeostasis: Basic Mechanisms and Enhancements - Claude Bernard documented the ability of mammals to maintain homeostasis - Walter B. Cannon coined the term “homeostasis” - Homeostasis is not a fixed/standard state – dynamic steady state - Majority of cells in a multicellular organism are not in direct contact with the external environment o The internal environment consists of the extracellular fluid  Plasma  Interstitial fluid - Cells pick up nutrients, oxygen, sugar, fatty acids, amino acids from extracellular fluid o Excrete waste product, CO2, into extracellular fluid  Picked up by blood to be excreted  Blood is one of the dirtiest things in the body – picks up all the waste and garbage - 60-65% of body is water in average adult o % depends on body fat percentage, age, other factors - Homeostasis is essential for proper cell function, and most cells, as a part of an organized system, contribute to homeostasis - Factors regulated by internal environment o Concentration of energy rich-molecules o Concentration of O2 and CO2 o Concentration of waste products o pH o Concentration of water, salt, and other electrolytes o Volume and pressure o Temperature o Social parameters - Animals vary in their homeostatic abilities o Regulators  Sweat or shake to maintain constant temp – humans o Conformers  Snakes – change body temp according to outside temp o Avoiders  Move when temps change – geese - Negative Feedback o Main regulatory mechanism for homeostasis  Occurs when a change in a controlled variable triggers a response that opposes the change  Not always used – not used in pregnancy – if it was then the birth would never happen 8-26-16 Components of a negative feedback system - Sensor – measures the variable being regulated – ex. Senses hot or cold - Integrator – compared sensed information with a standard point – ex. Compares skin temp to standard body temp - Effector – responds to maintain equilibrium in system – ex. If too cold, causes us to shiver Some internal processes are not always homeostatic – ie not under negative feedback systems - Dormancy - Locomotion - Growth and development - Neural signaling - On-demand regulation (digestion) - Reset systems: change set point - Positive feedback systems Positive feedback systems - Output is continually enhanced so that the controlled variable continues to move in the direction of the initial change - Create rapid change - Ex – oxytocin release and uterine contractions during mammalian birth Disruptions in regulation can lead to illness and death - Pathophysiology – altered physiology of organisms associated with disease - Ex – diabetes, hypertension, congestive heart failure (positive feedback cycle that can cause death) Homeostasis and other regulation is hierarchically distributed - Regulation at the cellular level – water volume, pH, etc - Intrinsic controls o Regulation by a tissue or organ for its own benefit - Extrinsic controls o Regulatory mechanisms initiated outside an organ to alter its activity o Coordinated regulation of several organs toward a common goal Organ systems can be grouped according to their contributions to organism - Whole-body control systems – control all other systems o Nervous system – controls ALL movement, including heartbeat, digestion – fast acting o Endocrine system – hormones released from endocrine glands to effect body – only affect cells with correct receptors in the blood – slow acting - Support and movement systems o Skeletal system o Muscular system - Maintenance systems o Circulatory system – blood, heart o Immune system o Respiratory system - lungs o Excretory system – kidneys, urine o Digestive system – intestines o Integumentary system - Reproductive system CHAPTER 2 – CELLULAR AND MOLECULAR PHYSIOLOGY To be a cell they must have cell membrane Skeletal muscles and neurons cannot regrow Mitochondria – produce energy in cell Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum produce protein Red blood cell – no nucleus – carry oxygen Calcium, Potassium, Sodium *** Sarcoplasmic reticulum – stores calcium Categories of Organic Molecules - Carbohydrates o Made of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen o Monosaccharides (glucose, fructose, galactose) – single/simple sugar o Polysaccharides (glycogen, cellulose, chitin) - - Lipids o Made of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen – different arrangement o Fatty acids o Triglycerides o Phospholipids o Cholesterol - Proteins o Made of Carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen o Amino acids o Highly complex 3-D structures o Peptides are small chains of amino acids - Nucleic Acids o Made of slightly different arrangement of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen o Composed of nucleotides o DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) o RNA (ribonucleic acid) Find protein, carbs, vitamins, minerals, waters, fats in our food Organic – any molecule that contains carbon Cellulose is the most abundant organic molecule on earth 9 calories per gram of fat 4 calories per protein 7 calories per alcohol Highlighted = pre or post lecture information Underlined = important info Bold= slide header Bold and underlined = chapter title
