Ch 40 notes Homeostasis  Homeostasis: cells trying to maintain a constant environment o Includes eating, gas exchange, temperature, salinity, tonicity,and water o Animals have different ways to maintain homeostasis  Conformers: maintain the levels of their environment  Regulators: go against the environment (requires more energy)  Can be osmoregulators or thermoregulators  Control systems work similar to a thermostat  Can be positive feedback : accelerates a process (rare)  Can be negative feedback loop: end product modifies the process/ usually be allosteric regulation  Can be feed forward regulation: preparing for a change before it happens o Relies on communication between multiple systems  Nervous system: sends immediate signals  Endocrine: sends hormones, more of a long term signal  Hormones: chemical messages that act on specific distant cells  Paracrine signaling: sends messages to immediate nearby cells o Glucose homeostasis  Regulates blood sugar levels/ maintain a constant sugar level  The mechanisms restore glucose levels back to the set point  Food causes these changes no matter how healthy they are  Low levels can occur when the animal hasn’t eaten in a while  Integraters: compare signals from sensors to the set point  An effector: compensates between the set point and the actual level  When sugar levels are too high  The pancreas secretes insulin which signals to the liver to turn glucose into glycogen by dehydration reaction  When sugar levels are too low  The pancreas secretes glucagon which signals to the liver to break by glycogen to glucose by hydrolysis  This process uses a negative feedback loop  Not integrated by the brain  The sensors are the pancreas  The effectors is the liver  Type one diabetics don’t make insulin
