Metabolism Metabolismall chemical reactions necessary to maintain life Anabolism building of molecules 0quotquot 39 quot of 39 39 Cellular Respiration purpose is to efficiently harness energy from glucose ATP yielding reactions are redox reactions Oxidation 7 reduction reactions energy yielding reactions within cells are oxidation reactions Oxidation occurs Via the gain of oxygen or the loss of hydrogen Oxidized substance always loses an electron Reduced substances always gains an electron Enzymes that remove hydrogens are called dehydrogenases Need a coenzyme to hold on to electron Two important coenzymes l Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide NAD based on niacin 2 FlaVin adenine dinucleotide FAD based on ribo avin Sites of ATP formation during cellular respiration l Glycolysis in cytoplasm 2 Kreb s Cycle in mitochondria 3 Oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria Mechanisms of ATP Synthesis 1 substratelevel phosphorylation high energy phosphate groups are transferred directly from phosphorylated substrates to ADP 2 oxidative phosphorylation the use of oxygen molecules to attract electrons and add inorganic phosphate to ADP I Carbohydrate metabolism Oxidation of Glucose glucose enters cells by facilitated diffusion aided by insulin converted to glucose6phosphate in cytoplasm Three pathways 1 Glycolysis in cytoplasm cleaved into 2 molecules of pyruvic acid forms net 2 ATP and 2 NADH If Formation of NADH H two electrons and a proton are removed from the substrate and added to NAD the other proton H is released into solution 2 Krebs cycle occurs in the mitochondria Pyruvic acid is converted to 2 molecules of acetyl CoA series of redox reactions produces C02 NADHH FADHz and 2 ATP per glucose can also be used to produce fatty acids and nonessential amino acids 3 Electron Transport Chain and OXidative Phosphorylation occurs across the inner mitochondrial membrane electrons are taken from NADHH and FADHZ electrons travel toward 0 H reenter through ATP Synthase Proton motive force NET RESULT FROM GLYCOLYSISKREBS CYCLEOXIDATIVE PHOSPHORYLATION 36 ATP Glycolysis is turned off by high levels of ATP extra glucose is stored as glycogen process is called glycogenesis when blood glucose is low glycogen is split and converted to glucose process called glycogenolysis II Lipid Metabolism Betaoxidation 7 Fatty acids are converted to acetyl CoA Glycerol is converted to glyceraldehyde phosphate and enters glycolysis Lipogenesis 7 occurs when cellular ATP and glucose levels are high Acetyl CoA molecules are combined to form fatty acid chains Glyceraldehyde phosphate is converted to glycerol Thus excessive carbohydrate intake provides necessary materials for neutral fat production Lipolysis 7 breakdown of stored fats into glycerol and fatty acids Essentially the reverse of lipogenesis Both glycerol and fatty acids enter lipid oxidation When glucose is low molecules in the Krebs cycle are converted to glucose This prevents acetyl CoA from entering the cycle and it accumulates The liver then converts the acetyl CoA to ketones or ketone bodies Ketosis results when ketones accumulate faster than they can be used Ketones are excreted in urine Ketosis is a common consequence of starvation unwise dieting and diabetes mellitus Ketosis can also cause metabolic acidosis Blood pH drops and produces hyperventilation and sometimes coma 111 Protein metabolism Oxidation of amino acids for energy steps 1 Transamination transfer of amine NHz group to alphaketoglutaric acid amino acid now becomes a keto acid 2 Oxidative deamination amine group of glutamic acid is removed as ammonia NH3 and thus aketoglutaric acid is regenerated ammonia molecules combine with CO to form urea and water 3 Keto acid modi cation keto acid produced by transamination is converted to pyruvic acid or another metabolite that can be plugged into the Krebs cycle process is reversible therefore deaminated amino acids that have been converted to pyruvic acid can be reconverted to glucose Body maintains a catabolicanabolic steady state refers to the constant breakdown and buildup of molecules Blood contains nutrient pools nutrient pools amino acid pool and carbohydratefat pool quot quot controls act to equalize concentrations of nutrients between two states 1 Absorptive nutrients rushing in from GI tract anabolic processes exceed catabolic excess metabolites are converted to fat 2 Postabsorptive state period between meals primary goal is to maintain blood glucose levels Sources of blood glucose during postabsorptive state 1 Glycogenolysis in liver 2 Glycogenolysis in skeletal muscle 3 Lipolysis in adipose tissue and liver 4 Catabolism of cellular protein Role of Liver in metabolism 1 Packages fatty acids into forms that can be stored and transported 2 Synthesizes plasma proteins 3 Forms nonessential amino acids converts ammonia to urea 4 Stores glucose as glycogen 5 Store certain vitamins 6 Conserve iron 7 Degrade hormones 8 Detoxify alcohol and drugs Cholesterol Metabolism Cholesterol serves as structural basis for bile salts steroid hormones and vitamin D about 15 of blood cholesterol comes from diet 85 is produced from Acetyl CoA in the liver Lipoproteins lipids and cholesterol need to be bound to proteins in order to be soluble in water the higher the of lipid the lower the density the lipoprotein the higher the of protein the higher the density Three types of lipoproteins 1 High density lipoproteins HDLs transports cholesterol to liver from tissues good 2 Low density lipoproteins LDLs when fat is unloaded residues become LDLs bad transport cholesterol 3 Very low density lipoproteins VLDLs transfer triglycerides to adipose tissue HDL pulls cholesterol from body tissues including blood vessel walls LDL takes cholesterol to tissues for plasma membrane structure and hormone production High HDL levels are good means that cholesterol is being taken to liver for degradation Factors regulating plasma 39 39 39 high levels slow liver from producing cholesterol however liver still makes a certain base amount therefore diet only slightly affects serum cholesterol saturated fatty acids stimulate cholesterol production unsaturated fatty acids stimulate excretion of cholesterol smoking coffee are linked to high LDL levels Metabolic rate and body heat metabolic rate rate of body to expend energy measured as heat produced by calorimeter by respirometer 1 L 02 48 kcal of heat basal metabolic rate BMR heat produced to support basic body functions measured under controlled conditions BMR measured as kcal per square meter of surface area per hour kcalmzh Factors that affect BMR 1 Surface area 7 as the ratio of surface area to body volume increases so does BMR 2 Age 7 younger higher 3 Sex gender

Thermoregulation is controlled by hypothalamus Thermoregulatory centers Heatloss center Heatpromoting center Input received from 1 Peripheral thermoreceptors in skin 2 Central thermoreceptors in brain initiates a response via autonomic effector pathways Heatpromoting responses 1 Vasoconstriction 2 Increased BMR 3 Shivering 4 Enhanced thyroxine production 5 Behavior Heatloss responses Meiosis cell division the produces haploid sex cells two nuclear divisions occur and therefore are referred to as Meiosis l and II Meiosis l 1 Prophase 1 tetrads are formed by synapsis of homologous chromosomes sections of DNA are exchanged between chromatids 2 Metaphase 1 tetrads are arranged along the equator ofthe cell Anaphase telophase and cytokinesis 1 take place like mitosis Meiosis 2 occurs just like mitosis except there is no second replication of DNA Genetics diploid the normal number of chromosomes haploid halfthe number of chromosomes Character heritable feature such as flower color Trait each variable for a character such as white pink etc Karyotype complete set of chromosomes displayed in homologous pairs Alleles similar genes at the same locus from different parents Homozygous when the alleles are the same Heterozygous when the alleles are different Dominant one allele that masks or suppresses the expression of another Recessive the allele that is masked Genotype the genetic makeup of an individual Phenotype the physical characteristics that are expressed Phenotype Genes Environment Sexual sources of genetic variation 1Law of Segregation f blending was correct F1 hybrids from a purpleflowered and a whiteflowered would all have palepurple flowers However Mendel showed that all F1 offspring had purple flowers What happened to the white flowered plants genetic contribution If it were lost then F1 plants could only produce purple flowers in the F2 generation Mende allowed F1 plants to selfpollinate this resulted in white owered plants appearing in the F2 generation There was a ratio of 3 purple flowered plants for every 1 white flowered plant Mendel reasoned that the purple ower was the dominant trait and that the heritable factor causing the white flower was not diluted Four related ideas summarize Mendel s explanation 1Alternative versions of genes account for variations in inherited characters the purple flowered allele and the white flowered allele are examples of two variations for a given gene 2For each character an organism inherits two alleles one from the mother and one from the father 3 If two alleles differ then one the dominant allele is fully expressed in the organisms appearance the other the recessive allele has no noticeable effect on the organism39s appearance 4The two alleles for each character segregate during gamete production thus an ovum and sperm receive only one of the alleles lf contrasting alleles are present 50 of the gametes receive the dominant while 50 receive the recessive this is Mendel s Law of Segregation The Testcross if we have a purple owered plant we cannot know the genotype for sure If we cross this plant with one that has white owers the we can determine the genotype based on the offspring Ifthe genotype is PP then the offspring will be all purple Ifthe genotype is Pp then 12 will be purple and 12 will be white The breeding of a recessive homozygote with an organism dominant phenotype but unknown genotype is called a testcross can be illustrated using a Punnett Square based the Law of Segregation 2Law of independent assortment what would happen if Mendel crossed pea plants that differed in two characters This is called a dihybrid cross Two ofthe seven characters Mendel studied were pea color and shape From monohybrid crosses Mendel learned that the allele for yellow was dominant and the allele for green was recessive Likewise the allele for smooth shape was dominant and wrinkled was recessive yellowround YYRR and greenwrinkled yyrr were crossed Are these two characters transmitted from parents to offspring as one package If so we should nd a 31 ratio of Yellowround to greenwrinkled in the F2 generation Mendel found the offspring of the F2 generation to have a phenotypic ratio of 9131311 this indicated that each pair of alleles is distributed independently this is because chance determines how the tetrads align on the metaphase 1 spindle therefore maternal and paternal chromosomes are randomly distributed to the daughter cells 2quot calculates the number of gamete types from independent assortment n the number of homologous pairs lf n3 then 2quot 8 different gametes or combinations In a human male s testes there are 223 or 85 million possibilities Mendelian inheritance reflects rules of probability the probability scale ranges from 1 t0 0 An event that is certain to occur has a probability of 1 An event that is certain NOT to occur has a probability of 0 For a twoheaded coin the probability of tossing heads is 1 while the probability of tossing tails is 0 With a normal coin the chance of tossing heads is 12 and the chance of tossing tails is 12 Each coin toss is an independent event and is unaffected by previous events The rule of multiplication How do we determine the chance of two independent events happening at the same time like tossing two coins and both of them coming up heads First compute the probability of each single event In this case tossing a heads 12 Then multiply the individual probabilities to calculate the overall probability X With flower color as the character the genotype of a given F1 plant is Pp What is the probability that a particular F2 plant will have white flowers For this to happen both the ovum and sperm must carry the p allele The probability that an ovum will carry the p allele is 12 which is the same for the sperm Therefore using the rule of multiplication the probability that both will come together at fertilization is 12 X 12 1 Rule of addition What is the probability that an F2 plant from a monohybrid cross will be heterozygous According to the rule of addition the probability that an event can occur in two or more different ways is the sum of the separate probabilities of those ways So from a monohybrid cross the chance of Pp is 1A and the chance opris Aso 12 Using rules of probability to solve genetics problems What do we do with trihybrid crosses For example Mendel crossed purple owered plants that have yellow round seeds with purpleflowered plants that have green wrinkled seeds PprRr X Ppyyrr What is the chance that the offspring will have at least two recessive traits all genotypes that ful ll this condition ppnyr pprrr Ppyyrr PPyyrr and ppyyrr next use the rule of multiplication to calculate the individual probabilities of each of these genotypes PPYYRF probability of pp X 12yy x 12 Rr 116 pprrr X12X12 2116 Ppyyrr 12x12xy2 2216 F Pyyrr wxizxyz 2116 ppyyrr wxizxyz 2116 nally use the rule of addition to pool the probabilities for ful lling the condition of at least two recessive traits Chance of two recessive traits 616 or 38 Crossover of homologous and genetic recombination the exchange of segments of DNA produces genetic combinations not seen in parents A Random fertilization fertilization of an egg by any sperm 85 million X 85 million 72 trillion possible zygotes The relationship between genotype and phenotype is rarely simple Incomplete dominance for some traits the F1 hybrids have an appearance somewhere in between the the phenotypes of the parents for example when red snapdragon plants are crossed with white all the F1 hybrids have pink flowers Is this evidence for blending No if blending had occurred then all offspring in the F2 generation would be pink What is a dominant allele in complete dominance we see that the phenotypes of the heterozygote and dominant homozygote are indistinguishable in codominace both alleles are separately manifest in the phenotype For example ABO blood groups The genotype for A blood is AA for B blood is BB and for AB blood is AB For any character dominancerecessive relationship depends on the level we examine the phenotype for example TaySachs disease Brain cells are unable to metabolize a particular lipid which Accumulates in the brain and the cells then die Only individuals with both TaySachs alleles have the disease Theref0re at the organismal level TaySachs quali es as recessive At the biochemical level it is classi ed as incomplete dominance The enzyme de ciency can be detected in heterozygotes who have an activity level ofthe enzyme that is intermediate between normal and diseased individuals Heterozygotes lack symptoms of the disease because half the normal amount ofthe enzyme is sufficient Thus at the molecular level the normal allele and the TaySachs allele are codominant Multiple alleles refers to genes that exist in more than two allelic forms Such as ABO blood groups l leiotropy the ability of a gene to affect an organism in many ways Alleles that are responsible for hereditary diseases often exhibit this characteristic The amino acid substitution in sicklecell anemia leads to a breakdown of RBCs clumping of cells and clogging of small vessels and accumulation of sickled cells in the spleen Epistasis In some cases a gene at one locus alters the phenotypic expression of a gene at a second locus In mice black coat color is dominant to brown B for black and b for brown A second gene locus determines whether or not pigment is deposited Deposition of pigment is dominant The rst locus determines coat color but the second determines if the pigment is produced What happens if black mice who are heterozygous for both genes Bch Polygenic inheritance quantitative characters exist in graduations in human populations and are produced by more than one gene when polygenic traits are plotted on a graph they produce a bellshaped curve Environmental in uences on phenotype UV radiation Drugs Nutrition Hormonal deficits eg influence from other genes Nontraditional inheritance l Genomic imprinting genes marked as paternal or maternal during gametogenesis some genes have different effects ifthey came from the mother or father 2Extrachromosomal inheritance mitochondrial genes Genetic Screening carrier recognition pedigree blood test feta testing used when there is a known risk of a genetic disorder most common is amniocentesis normally reserved for after week 14 tests performed on sloughed off fetal cells in amniotic fluid chorionic villi sampling faster than amniocentesis Discovery of a sexlinked gene Thomas Morgan bred fruit flies to study genes and chromosomes He eventually found a mutant for white eye color He then mated the whiteeyed male with aredeyed normal eye color female His F1 generation all had red eyes suggesting that the allele for red color was dominant His F2 generation produced the expected 31 phenotypic ratio however the whiteeyed trait only showed up in males All females had red eyes while half of the males had red and the other half white Linked genes tend to be inherited together because they are located on the same chromosome Morgan also studied body color and wing size in flies Normal ies have gray bodies and normal wings Mutant ies have black bodies and vestigial wings Morgan crossed female dihybrids with males that had both mutant Phenotypes According to Mendel s law of independent assortment this should produce four phenotypic classes of offspring Morgan found a different ratio than 11 1 1 He found many more of the parental phenotypes and fewer recombinant types Recombination data can be used to map a chromosome s loci the recombination frequency between body color and wing size is about 17 crossingover results in 17 of offspring having a combination of body color and wing size different from the parents different recombination frequencies might be explained by the distance between the loci on the chromosome carried on the same chromosome is a gene for eye color called cinnabar The frequency of cinnabar eyes and black bodies is about 9 Therefore crossovers between body color and wing size are about twice as frequent as crossovers between body color and eye color 17 v 9 The distance between genes is measured by how many map units separate them the loci for black color and the locus for cinnabar are 9 map units apart the distance between wing size and black color is 17 units What is the sequence of the genes We can eliminate the sequence blackwing sizecinnabar since we know cinnabar is closer to black color that wing size is this leaves two possible sequences cinnabarblackwing size and blackcinnabarwing size the frequency of recombination between cinnabar and wing size should reveal the correct sequence the first possible sequence predicts that cinnabar and wing size are about 26 map units apart 179 while the second predicts a separation of about 8 studies found the frequency of recombination between wing size and cinnabar was 95 this suggested the sequence is black colorcinnabarwing size Sometimes genes are so far apart that they cross over all the time Such is the case with Mendel s seed color and pea ower color which are known to be on chromosome 1 they are so far apart that linkage is not observed Sex linked disorders in humans if a sexlinked trait is due to a recessive allele a female will express the phenotype only if she is a homozygote hemizygous is the term reserved for males since they have only one locus Any male receiving the recessive allele Will express the trait lDuchenne Muscular dystrophy present l in

trait and half won t this is seen in ChristSiemensTouraine syndrome Alterations of Chromosome Number sometimes members of a homologous pair of chromosomes do not move apart during meiosis l or sister chromatids do not separate during meiosis II this leads to an abnormal number of chromosomes called aneuploidy If a cell contains an extra it is called trisomic for that chromosome if a cell lacks a chromosome it is called monosomic for that chromosome Alterations of chromosome structure breakage can lead to fourtypes of changes 1Deletion a chromosomal fragment is lost during division

Colloid osmotic pressures Hydrostatic pressures force exerted by a uid pressing against a wall Capillary hydrostatic pressure pressure that forces uid through capillary walls Interstitial uid hydrostatic pressure pressure produced by LP and opposes cap HP Pressure of IF is usually zero because it is absorbed into lymphatic vessels Therefore net effective hydrostatic pressure is equal to the capillary pressure at each end of the bed Colloid osmotic pressures created by the presence of large nondiffusible molecules These encourage osmosis when concentration of water is lower than on the opposite side of the capillary membrane Called oncotic pressure Oncotic pressure is usually lower in IF Net osmotic pressure pulls water into vessels Net filtration pressure determined net gain or

is then actively pumped into interstitial fluid it can then bind with H in blood thus making blood that is leaving stomach more alkaline than blood arriving This is called the alkaline tide 3

corpuscles located close to medulla loop of Henle extends deep into medulla Capillary Beds of Nephrons l Glomerulus afferent arteriole efferent arteriole diameter of efferent is smaller than afferent

found in arteriole walls smooth muscle cells that contain renin cells are mechanoreceptors that detect blood pressure macula densa tubule cells are chemoreceptors that detect solute content Filtration Membrane porous allows free passage of water and small solutes has three layers 1 Fenestrated capillary walls 2 Visceral membrane of capsule pedicles of podocytes 3 Middle basement membrane prevents large solutes from passing Mechanisms of Urine Formation Filtrate everything in blood plasma except proteins Urine remaining fluid after the tubules have removed most of the water nutrients and essential ions Involves three major processes l Glomerular filtration passive process uids and solutes are forced through membrane by hydrostatic pressure Net filtration pressure approximately 10 mm Hg Glomerular filtration rate GFR total amount of filtrate formed per minute in kidneys Factors 1 Total surface area available 2 Filtration membrane permeability 3 Net filtration pressure normal GFR in both kidneys of an adult 180L per day GFR is directly proportional to net filtration pressure an increase in arterial blood pressure increased GFR dehydration decrease in GFR because of increase in glomerular osmotic pressure Regulation of Glomerular Filtration important to control because it is related to reabsorption in tubules too much filtrate makes it difficult to reabsorb important substances too little facilitates reabsorption of too much including wastes 1 Renal autoregulation intrinsic mechanism Two types of controls 1 Myogenic mechanism smooth muscle cells constrict when pressure is too high helps to restrict blood flow and lower downstream pressure cells will relax when systemic pressure is too low thus allowing maximum flow 2 Tubuloglomerular feedback mechanism directed by macula densa slow moving low osmotic pressure stimulates cells to secrete chemical that dilates afferent arterioles fast moving high osmotic pressure produces vasoconstriction 2 Sympathetic nervous system controls during times of stress sympathetic fibers stimulate release of epinephrine causes strong constriction of afferent arterioles 3 ReninAngiotensin mechanism begins as release of renin by juxtaglomerular JG cells activates smooth muscle of arterioles throughout body also stimulates adrenal cortex to produce aldosterone Aldosterone stimulates reclamation of Na this increases osmotic pressure more angiotensin receptors on efferent arteriole causes more intense constriction than afferent arteriole Renin release is dependent on 1 Reduced stretch of JG cells 2 Stimulation of JG cells activated by macula densa 3 Direct stimulation of JG cells by sympathetic neurons main purpose of reninangiotensin mechanism is to stabilize systemic blood pressure and extracellular blood volume H Tubular reabsorption begins as soon as filtrate enters proximal convoluted tubule transport is transepithelial K and Na sometimes follow paracellular pathway most all glucose and amino acids are reabsorbed 1 Sodium reabsorption always active process requires protein carrier to absorb into cell facilitated diffusion NaK pump moves Na into interstitial uid then moves passively into peritubular capillaries 2 Reabsorption of water ions and nutrients movement of Na establishes electrochemical gradient this favors passive reabsorption of anions negatively charged ions water follows osmotic gradient established by sodium as water leaves concentration of solutes increases these solutes then diffuse out following their concentration gradients this process is called solvent drag 3 Secondary active transport moves glucose vitamins and most cations when carrier molecule transports sodium other molecules quothitch a ridequot all transport molecules have a maximum they can move 4 Nonreabsorbed solutes 1 Some molecules lack carriers 2 Some are not lipid soluble 3 Some are too large to pass through plasma membrane Most important urea creatinine uric acid Absorption in regions of the renal tubule l proximal convoluted tubule all glucose lactate and amino acids 6570 of Na and water bulk of actively transported substances 2 loop of Henle water reabsorption is not coupled with solute reabsorption plays vital role in producing dilute or concentrated urine 3 Distal convoluted tubule and collecting duct finetuning of Na and water reabsorption into blood controlled by aldosterone and atrial natriurectic hormone HI Tubular secretion substances such as H K creatinine and ammonium ions move from blood to tubules therefore urine consists of filtered and secreted substances Tubular secretion important for l Disposing of substances not in filtrate such as some drugs 2 Eliminating undesirable substances that have been reabsorbed 3 Ridding body of excess K ions 4 Controlling blood pH Regulation of urine 39 and volume Osmolality number of solute particles dissolved in lL of water crucial function of kidney is to keep body fluids at 300 mosm similar to plasma Countercurrent mechanism flow of filtrate through loop of Henle flow of blood through vasa recta Loop of Henle countercurrent multiplier l Descending limb is impermeable to solutes and permeable to water osmolality of filtrate increases to 1200 at bottom of loop 2 Ascending limb is impermeable to water and actively transports NaCl to interstitial uid Na and C1 are extruded by ascending limb filtrate becomes increasingly dilute as water moves from descending limb filtrate becomes more quotsaltyquot this salt is removed from the ascending limb and put into interstitial uid the added salt increases the osmolality of the interstitial uid which in turn draws water from the descending limb this process is a positive feedback mechanism that produces high osmolality of filtrate and interstitial uid the opposite ow of filtrate in each limb countercurrent the process of increasing osmolality multiplier 3 Collecting ducts in deep medullary regions are permeable to urea this adds to high osmolality of interstitial uid 4 Vasa recta acts as countercurrent exchanger blood ow is very slow freely permeable to both water and salt blood entering and leaving medulla has same concentration helps to maintain gradient and perform cell exchange at same time Ollt but so what The mechanism of the Loop has two benefits 1 Establishes a vertical osmotic gradient in the medulla gradient is used to concentrate urine therefore it is more concentrated than body uids 2 Because filtrate is hypotonic when it enters ascending limb this allows the kidney to secrete urine that is more dilute than body uids Immunity l Nonspeci c A Tissues integument stomach mucosa saliva mucus B Cells 1 Leukocytes a Monocytes capable of leaving the blood to become

from fatty acid molecules in plasma membrane 4 Complement refers to a group of 20 plasma proteins in blood U all cause the dilation of local vessels hyperemia or redness some signals also increase the permeability of vessels release of exudate produces edema swelling swelling presses against nerve endings and causes pain pain also produced by sensitizing effects of prostaglandins and kinins edema helps to dilute toxins brings oxygen and nutrients and clotting proteins Phagocyte mobilization during inflammation leukocytosis inducing factors stimulate the increased production of neutrophils characteristic sign of inflammation find damaged area by binding to cell adhesion molecules CAMs called margination continued signaling prompts neutrophils to pass through wall called diapedesis

Reactivity ability to react with products of immunogenicity 1 Haptens molecules that are too small to be noticed M when they combine with the body s own proteins the combination is recognized as foreign 2 Selfantigens MHC major histocompatibility complex proteins molecules on the external surfaces of the body s own cells only immunogenic to other people B Cells of specific immunity immature cells are nearly identical maturity into B or T depends on where they become immunocompetent 1 TCells mature in the thymus lmmunocompetence depends in removing cells that attack MHC proteins process is called negative selection those that interact weakly are allowed to mature into T cells combination of immunocompetence and selftolerance is needed for proper function 2 B cells mature in bone marrow when T and B cells become immunocompetent they display a unique receptor on cell surface these receptors will bind only with a speci c antigen lymphocytes become competent before they meet with antigen this is determined genetically 3 Antigen presenting cells purpose is to engulf foreign particles and display fragments on their own cell surface these fragments are then recognized by T cells major types ofAPCs are interstitial cells Langerhans cells macrophages and activated B lymphocytes these cells also produce signals that activate T cells activated T cells in turn stimulate the production ofAPCs C Processes 1 Humoral Immune Response produced by contact with BLymphocytes binding stimulates endocytosis clonal selection produces many identical Bcells most clones become plasma cells to produce antibodies some remain dormant and serve as memory cells primary response takes 36 days to start serum antibody concentration usually peaks within 10 days a Active humoral immunity occurs when B cells encounter antigen and produce antibodies active immunity can be naturally or artificially acquired vaccines contain attenuated pathogens or pathogen fragments one drawback is that vaccines do not stimulate T cells that generate a strong cellular response many antibodies are produces but cell memory is poor b Passive humoral immunity antibodies are acquired from another human or resistant animal can be from motherto infant or from an injected serum c Antibodies aka immunoglobulins secreted by activated Bcells or plasma cells have variable antigen binding sites have constant regions on which they are classi ed ve groups providing a binding site for macrophages B cells can create diversity by shuf ing order of gene segments during their development can inactivate and tag for destruction form antigenantibody complexes Defensive mechanisms of antibodies Neutralization antibody blocks speci c sites on viruses Agglutination cellbound antibodies become cross linked and cause clumping Precipitation soluble molecules are linked and then settle out Complement fixation 2 Cellmediated response CD4 TH cells primary helper cells CD8 Tc cells cytotoxic and suppressor cells these cells activate through simultaneous recognition of self and antiself proteins a Antigen recognition two types of MHC proteins are useful Class and Class II MHC Class l are constructed from a base protein and a protein fragment The fragments are either bits of self proteins or foreign products synthesized within the cell such as a viral protein MHC Class proteins are displayed by almost all body cells except blood and are recognized by CD8 cells MHC Class II proteins are typically found on mature B cells CD4 cells and APCs Class II proteins are constructed from a self base and a protein fragment from a foreign body that has been phagocytosed Class and II proteins are important because they alert other cells that the body s cells have been infected b Tcell activation Steps 1 Tcell antigen receptors bind to antigenMHC complex TH CD4 bind to MHC Class II proteins and will mobilize B cells and Tc CD8 cells Tc CD8 bind to MCH Class proteins At this point bound T cells are switched on but are not totally functional These cells are called naive T cells 2 Costimulation Prior to cloning Tcell must recognize other factors Examples include other surface receptors on the APC or cytokines released by macrophages or other T cells Cell will not become functional without costimulation this may help to prevent destruction of own cells that may present a foreign protein due to mutation Once activated T cell divides to produce clones After infection has passed some remain as memory cells c Cytokines proteins secreted by activated T cells and macrophages that act like hormones Some stimulate more rapid cell division Activated T cells also release cytokines Some are toxins others enhance inflammation d Specific Tcell roles Helper CD4 primed by APC presentation of MHC Class II protein stimulate proliferation and cloning of T and B cells that have already become bound to an antigen stimulate activated B cells to divide and produce antibodies Can interact directly with B cells to stimulate them Cytotoxic CD8 inserts perforin into plasma membrane of target Suppressor suppress activity of T and B cells I Diseases A HIV destroys helper CD4 cells over time number ofantibodies declines and CD8 cells do not respond to viral cues long asymptomatic period is not dormancy symptoms occur after lymph node has been destroyed B Autoimmune diseases lymphocytes lose ability to distinguish self from nonself CD8 cells destroy own body cells 1 Multiple sclerosis MS destroys white matter of so and brain 2 Type juvenile diabetes mellitus destroys pancreatic beta cells therefore insulin deficient 3 Rheumatoid arthritis destroys capsule of synovial joint C How does the normal state break down Possibilities 1 Inef cientineffective lymphocyte programming self reactive cells are not selected out in thymus 2 Appearance of new self proteins 3 Crossreaction ofantibodies produced against antigens and self antigens antibody produced binds to similar selfantigens D Hypersensitivity vigorous immune response can be acute subacute or delayed 1 Acute most common is anaphylaXis Steps 1 Contact with allergen stimulates antibody production 2 Many antibodies are produced 3 Antibodies attach to mast cells and basophils 4 Later encounter with allergen 5 Allergen binds and stimulates ood of histamine 6 Result is leaky blood vessels mucus production causes smooth muscles to contract aLocak Cells basic structural and functional unit of living organisms most cells have a nucleus cytoplasm and plasma membrane Plasma membrane defines borders and acts as barrier Fluid mosaic model phospholipid bilayer has hydrophilic heads and hydrophobic tails most membrane proteins have phobic and philic ends integral acts with both sides of membrane involved in transport peripheral attached to integral on inside and outside of cell some are enzymes Plasma membrane functions extract substances from interstitial uid when needed and in right amounts PM is selectively permeable Passive substances that can pass without cell energy Active substances that pass only with help of cell energy Passive processes 1 Diffusion molecules move along or down a concentration

shape of cell by altering internal H20 volume 1 lsotonic solution whose concentrations of non permeating solutes is equal to what is found in cells 2 Hypertonic solutions with higher concentration than cells these dehydrate 3 Hypotonic solutions with lower concentration than cells these hydrate Facilitated diffusion process where carrier molecules combine with non penetrating molecules then release them into cytoplasm does not need ATP Active Processes 1 active transport solute pumps move particles m concentration gradient uses ATP 2 Vesicular transport used for large particles or macromolecules need ATP Exocytosis substances moved to outside of cell kept in membranous sac that fuses with PM Endocytosis enters cells as membrane surrounds membrane pinches off to form vesicle phagocytosis cytoplasm expands and flows around sac formed is called phagosome bulkphase endocytosis minute droplets of intersitial fluid are taken in receptormediated endocytosis cell binds to specific molecule Cytoplasm material inside PM contains cytosol organelles inclusions Organelles Mitochondria Ribosomes Endoplasmic Reticulum Golgi Apparatus Lysosome Peroxisomes Nucleus Nucleus contains DNA controls cells largest organelle nucleoplasm jellylike substance holds chromatin and nucleoli Nuclear membrane two bilayer phospholipid membranes outer membrane is continuous with rough ER membranes may fuse causing pores selectively permeable but less so than the plasma membrane Nucleoli made ofribosomal RNA rRNA not bound by membrane produce ribosomes rRNA is combined with proteins to form ribosome subunits that pass out pores Chromatin network of DNA fibers throughout nucleus periodically wind around histone proteins to form nucleosomes changes in the shape of histones in a nondividing cell exposes genes that will determine which proteins will be produced When cell prepares to divide chromatin coils to form chromosomes this avoids entanglement and breakage of DNA Cell life cycle 2 major periods 1 lnterphase cell grows and carries out usual functions 2 Mitotic 7 when the cell divides into two cells lnterphase metabolic Subphases 1 G1 metabolically active rapid protein synthesis centrioles begin to appear at the end 2 S synthetic DNA replicates histones are made and assembled into chromatin 3 G2 enzymes and proteins for division are synthesized and move to cell parts centrioles are complete cells that have stopped dividing G0 subphase DNA replication 1 DNA helices uncoil from the nucleosome 2 A helicase enzyme untwists the helix breaks H bonds and separates DNA into two complimentary strands this occurs at multiple locations along the DNA at sites called replication bubbles Y shaped regions at the end of the bubble is called a replication fork 3 Each freed nucleotide serves as a template for building a new complimentary strand Always Adenine bonds with Thymine Guanine bonds with Cytosine 4 Short segments of DNA are joined by DNA ligase ea new DNA molecule has 1 old strand and one new strand semiconservative replication 5 When replication ends histones associate with DNA and the chromatin condenses to form chromatids that are united by a centromere Control of Cell Division poorly understood but surfacevolume relationships are important Amount of nutrients needed is directly related to its volume Ce volume can increase significantly with only relatively minor changes in surface area therefore PM inadequate for nutrient exchange when cell reaches critical size could also be related to contact inhibition cells stop dividing when they touch other cells Cell cycle control at the G2 checkpoint a class of proteins called cyclins accumulate in the cell during interphase Enzymes called Cdk proteins are activated by binding to cyclins to form a substance called maturation promoting factor MPF MPF allows the cell to pass the checkpoint and enter mitosis MPF also begins the breakdown of its own cyclin by the end of mitosis M or Mitotic stage Consists oftwo events 1 mitosis or meiosis 2 cytokinesis Mitosis Early prophase chromatin condenses to form chromatids chromosome is formed through joining two sister chromatids nucleoli disappear mitotic spindle begins to form Late prophase nuclear membrane fragments centrioles move to poles mitotic spindle forms microtubules attach to the centromere Metaphase chromosomes line up at equator to form the metaphase plate Anaphase chromosomes split each chromatid now becomes a chromosome microtubules not attached to chromatids push against each other to push the poles apart and elongate the cell process is assisted by the fact that the chromatin is condensed Telophase and cytokinesis chromosomes uncoil nuclear membrane forms from rough ER nucleoli reappear during cytokinesis microfilaments at the periphery contract to form a cleavage furrow Protein synthesis sole function of DNA is to determine structure of proteins only gene a section of DNA that carries instructions for one polypeptide chain ea sequence of three nucleotide bases is called a triplet can be thought of as a quotwordquot for a specific amino acid eg triplet AAA calls for phenylalanine CCT calls for glycine exon portion of DNA used in coding protein intron portion of DNA not used in coding RNA all RNA types are formed by DNA and assist by decoding DNA and serving as a messenger for protein construction RNA differs from DNA Single stranded 1 2 Ribose sugar 3 Uracil U replaces thymine T as a base RNA types Transfer RNA tRNA carries amino acids Ribosomal RNA rRNA forms the structure of ribosomes Messenger RNA mRNA encodes the information in DNA and provides a template for protein construction Transcription the transfer of information from a DNA gene s base sequence to the complementary base sequence of an mRNA molecule Making mRNA 1 A transcription factor binds to a DNA site near the start sequence 2 The transcription factor assists the binding of RNA polymerase 3 RNA polymerase opens the DNA helix and separates the strands The DNA strand that is the template for mRNA is called the sense strand 4 For each triplet on the DNA strand a corresponding triplet on mRNA is called a codon each amino acid is coded for by multiple codons Translation afterthe mRNA is constructed is leaves the nucleus and enters the rough endoplasmic reticulum 1 A small ribosomal subunit binds to mRNA 2 tRNA attached to the amino acid methionine bindsto mRNA and stimulates the binding ofa large ribosomal subunit this completes the construction of a functional ribosome the functional ribosome has an A site forthe incoming tRNA a P site for the tRNA holding the growing polypeptide protein and an E site forthe exiting tRNA 3 The ribosome holds the tRNA and the mRNA tightly togetherto insure the proper positioning of amino acids 4 The ribosome slides along the mRNA one codon at a time bringing the next codon into the A site to be read by tRNA 5 The chain of amino acids on the tRNA in the P is transferred to the amino acid on the tRNA in the A site by the formation ofa peptide bond 6 At this time the ribosome moves along the mRNA to the next codon at the same time the tRNA in the A site is moved into the P site and the tRNA that was previously in the P site is now moved to the E site and ejected from the ribosome several ribosomes will attach to the mRNA and each will begin to construct a protein This is referred to as a polyribosome mRNA strand is continuously read until it reaches a stop codon such as UGA or UAA and the nished structural or functional protein is released from the ribosome KINS 2532 Learning Outcomes Test 2 Topic 4 The blood Gross 8 microscopic anatomy of the blood 1a Three major functions of the blood 0 Distribution 0

will stimulate erythropoiesis Stimuli are high altitude loss of blood increased trainingexercise blood doping 2a Structure and function of hemoglobin A molecule Hemoglobin A HbA is adult hemoglobin It contains four globin chains 2 alpha chains and two beta chains Each chain is chain has a nonprotein moietypart called the heme group which binds oxygen to Fe2 at its center Each heme can carry one molecule of 02 this means up to 402 for one molecule of Hb Some C02 in bloodstream is also transported by hemoglobin but by the globin moiety instead o Oxyhemoglobin when one or more molecules of 02 are bound to heme group of hemoglobin o Deoxyhemoglobinwhen hemoglobin loses some of the oxygen bound to it 0 Carbaminohemoglobin when carbon dioxide binds to amino groups of Hb 2b Breakdown of hemoglobin Hemoglobin is broken down into its globin and heme parts moieties The globin is hydrolyzed into its free amino acids which are reused The heme is broken down into its Fe2 and organic components The Fe2 is recycled or stored transferin and gastroferitin are transport proteins ferritin is a storage ironprotein complex The heme group is released and is broken down into biliverdin THEN bilirubin bile pigments which are excreted 3 Differences between hematocrit polycthemia and anemia o Hematocrit percent of formed elements in blood but mostly RBC normal is 45 depending on gender 0 Polycthemia excess of RBC Can be caused by cancer of erythropoietic cell line in the red bone marrow dehydration emphysema high altitude or physical conditioning or by blood doping 0 Anemia low oxygencarrying ability of the blood Can be caused by insufficient number of cells low hemoglobin content or abnormal hemoglobin Symptoms include fatigue paleness and shortness of breath Leucocytes

leucocytes 0 Organelles retain organelles throughout life Are TRUE complete cells 0 Life spanvaries depending on type hoursyears o Functionsdefense against infectious microorganisms and other pathogens 1c Factors that stimulate leucopoiesis production of white blood cells Leucopoiesis begins with pluripotent stem cell hemocytoblast which then can differentiate into all types of WBC The production of WBC is stimulated by CSF and IL produced by macrophages and T cells 1d Five types of leucocytes o Granulocyte HAS granules in cytoplasm o Neutrophils 60 to 70increase in bacterial

cells of immune system 0 Order ofabundance most to least Never Let lVlonkeys Eat Bananas 1e Differential count of leucocytes is important because looking at the concentration of each type of leucocytes can tell what kind of infection the patient has For instance if there is an increased amount of Eosinophils in the bloodstream then it is likely that there is a parasitic infection 2 Leucocytosis leukemia leucopenia o Leucocytosishigh WBC count for fighting infections allergies and parasites 0 Leukemiahigh WBC count caused by cancer of hemopoietic tissuebone marrow o Leucopenialow WBC count caused by either poisoning infectious diseases or drugs Thrombocytes Platelets 1a Site of formation is red bone marrow from hemocytoblast which multiplies continuously to produce ALL formed elements of blood including platelets 1b 130000 to 400000 thrombocytes in bloodstream 1c Physical characteristics 0 Life span10 days 0 Organellesno it was never a true cell 0 Functionclotting secrete chemicals to promote vascular spasm and clotting attract other thrombocytes to site of injury and initiate the intrinsic pathway of blood clotting 1d Factors that stimulate thrombopoiesis production of platelets Under the influence of thrombopoietin from the liver or kidney hemocytoblasts turn into megakaryoblasts DNA is duplicated until it becomes a megakaryocyte which gives off fragmentsthrombocytes They never were true cells Hemostasis 1a Three phases 0 Vascular spasmblood vessels constrict to reduce bleeding Can be caused by injury to vascular smooth muscle Chemicals such as serotonin are released by platelets and endothelial cells Platelet plug formation platelets adhere to exposed collagen fibers of the vessel wall to reduce or stop minor bleeding 0 Blood clotting coagulation blood clot forms as platelets become enmeshed in fibrin threads 1b Importance of first two phases 0 Vascular spasm allows time for platelet plug formation and blood clotting Platelet plug formationAs platelets aggregate they undergo degranulation the exocytosis of their cytoplasmic granules and release of factors that promote hemostasis They release serotonin a vasoconstrictor ADPwhich attracts other platelets to the area and stimulates their 39 g 39 39 and 39 39 39 Ithat promotes aggregation degranulation and vasoconstriction This is important because it activates a positive feedback mechanism that can quickly seal a small break in a blood vessel A2 an 1c Coagulation Coagulation multistep process that transforms blood from liquid to gel and is dependent on factors of coagulation Final product is fibrin Extrinsic pathway outside blood itself initiated by factors released by tissuestissue thromboplastin Involved in damaged vessels Takes seconds Intrinsic pathway found inside blood initiated by plateletsplatelet releasing factor Involves platelet degranulation Takes minutes Both use Ca2 Both pathways happen together Intrinsic pathway takes longer than extrinsic pathway due to having more steps before factor Xthrombokinase Two pathways are different till formation of factor Xthrombokinase but then both pathways have same final steps see 1 d 1d Final steps of coagulation Once factor X is activated it combines with other factors to produce prothrombin activator enzyme Prothrombin activator converts prothrombin plasma protein into thrombine an enzyme Thrombin converts fibrinogen a soluble plasma protein into fibrin the insoluble protein Fibrin is used to create the framework of a clot Fibrinolysisbreaking down and removing unneeded clot Plasminogen plasmin dissolves the fibrin 1e Clotting Can be accelerated inappropriate clotting see 1f immobility burns atherosclerosis Can be slowed down 0 In thrombocytopenia In hemophilia genetic lack of certain clotting factors Liver disorders insufficient vit K and other factors of coagulation Anticoagulants factors that inhibit clotting I Heparin a natural anticoagulant which prevents clot formation by inhibiting thrombin formation I Sodium citrate an agent used on glassware and instruments to prevent coagulation by tying up calcium OOO 1f Thrombus and embolus thromboembolytic disorders Thrombus clot developed in an unbroken blood vessel Embolus an abnormal object moving though a blood vessel such as a clot air bubble or lipid droplet ABO Blood typing and Rh factor 1 ABO blood types 0 A has type A antigen agglutinogen and AntiB antibodies agglutinins 0 B has type B antigen and AntiA antibodies 0 AB has both A amp B antigens but no antibodies 0 0 no antigens but both AntiA amp AntiB antibodies Rh Factor is determined by whether or not Rh antigens are present on the cell membranes llRh llmeans there are NO Rh antigens and llRh quot means there are antigens 8 genes can help determine ifa person is Rh positive The most common are CD and E genes Normally Rhquot and Rh blood do not have antiRh antibodies in plasma however Rh can develop these antibodies after the first exposure to Rh antigens 2 Agglutinins are antibodies against red blood cell agglutinogensantigens If someone were to receive the wrong type of blood agglutination would occur due to antigenantibody reactions For example if a RBC has A antigen and AntiB antibodies in plasma Type A blood it will cause agglutination clumping of cells when B antigens in type B and type AB blood come in contact with the antibodies in blood plasma This is why Type 0 blood is the universal donor since it does not have A nor B antigens to react with antibodies in receipients plasma In turn Type AB blood is the universal recipient because it has no anti A and antiB antibodies so it can accept all types of bloodantigens Topic 5 The Endocrine System Organization of the endocrine system 1 General function internal communication and control by means of hormones 2 Hormone chemical messengers that are transported by the bloodstream and stimulate physiological responses in cells of another tissue or organ 0 Free hormone not attached to proteins can have biological effects 0 Carrierbound hormonecannot have biological effects unless drops protein and becomes a free hormone Serve as a reserve and increases half life of hormone 3 target cellorgan the cellorgan acted upon by a hormone or other chemical messenger Hormones can have specificity which means a receptor for one hormone will not bind to other hormones Hormones can also exhibit saturation a condition in which all receptor molecules are occupied by hormone molecules 4 Nervous vs Endocrine system I Nervous system I Endocrine system I Communication through neurotransmitters NT I Communication through hormones NT at synapses distribution Sometimes Reacts to 110 msec Reacts more continue to continuous 5 Negative feedback mechanism importance in regulation of hormone level Reminder negative feedback is a selfcorrective mechanism in which a bodily change is detected and responses are activated that reverse the change and restore stability homeostasisand preserve normal body function In terms of hormone levels negative feedback mechanisms insure homeostasis When the level of hormone is too high negative feedback works to decreases it When the level of hormone is too low negative feedback works to increase it 6 Types of stimuli 0 Humoral stimulihormones secreted in response to blood levels of ions and nutrients 0 PT

Ca ions in intestine 9 Eicosanoids family of paracrine secretions They have 20carbon backbones derivedformed from a polyunsaturated fatty acid called arachidonic acid in the plasma membrane Cyclooxygenase converts arachidonic acid to three other types of eicosanoids Prostacyclin produced by the walls of the blood vessels where it inhibits blood clotting and vasoconstriction Thromboxanes produced by blood platelets During injury they override prostacyclin and stimulate vasoconstriction and clotting Prostaglandins PGs most diverse with multiple effects Produced in most organs Promote

Endocrine glands respond to maintain homeostasis in the body 0 Pineal glandsecretes melatonin which helps us fall asleep Sleep is needed for biological maintenance 0 Thymus secretes hormones for the development of Tlymphocytes We need these T lymphocytes to help with immunity for fighting infections 0 Pancreas secretes insulin and glucagon so help stabilize our blood glucose levels 2 Endocrine system works with other systems to maintain homeostasis mainly through producing hormones These hormones in turn affect target organs that are involved in other body systems see pg 678 in textbook Application of homeostatic mechanisms 1 Factor that could disrupt homeostasis o Tumors can form when there are no controls to stop a cell from dividing The cells can then metastasize and spread throughout the body This can negatively affect tissues and organs of the body preventing them from working correctly Autoimmune diseases when the immune system attacks the body Can destroy cells tissues and eventually organs of the entire body 2 If the endocrine system does not maintain homeostasis diseases and conditions can occur including 0 Hypothyroidism insufficiency of thyroid hormone Has symptoms that are seen in slow metabolism low metabolic rate depression of CNS lethargy weight gain etc Hyperthyroidism Grave s disease It is an autoimmune disease where antibodies activate TSH

cells are resistant to insulin Requires oral antidiabetic drugs Pregnancy and Human Development pregnancy events from fertilization to birth gestation period from last menstrual period to birth approximately 280 days from conception to two weeks after preembryo from third to eighth week embryo from ninth week to birth fetus at birth infant Fertilization oocyte is viable for 12 to 24 hours after ovulation most sperm are viable for 24 to 72 hours for fertilization coitus must occur between 5 days before ovulation and 24 hours after only a few hundred sperm may reach the oocyte sperm must be capacitated before they can fertilize acrosome secretions breakdown corona radiata and zona pellucida secretions of many sperm necessary for one to penetrate membrane of sperm merges with oocyte membrane when spermatic membrane contacts membrane of oocyte sodium channels open and depolarize this is the fast block to polyspermy Ca is released into oocyte cytoplasm which activates the oocyte to prepare for cell division Ca in ux also causes the cortical reaction granules just deep to PM empty contents into extracellular space material from granules bind to water and cause cell to swell this causes detachment of any remaining sperm this is called the slow block to polyspermy Ca in ux stimulates oocyte to undergo meiosis H and eject second polar body almost immediately chromosomes merge and replicate Preembgonic development from fertilization to implantation at about 36 hours after fertilization the first cleavage division produced 2 identical cells by 72 hours it has become a mass of cells called a morula mass becomes hollow and fluidfilled and is called a blastocyst zona pellucida breaks down and releases the blastocyst blastocyst cells differentiate into trophoblast an outer flattened layer of cells which will become the placenta inner cell mass an inner cluster of rounded cells that will become the embryonic disc and later the embryo Implantation blastocyst binds to endometrium begins to secrete digestive enzymes cytokines control in ammatory response and growth factors endometrium quickly thickens in that area cells of trophoblast divide and form two layers one layer becomes a multinucleated mass and destroys cells of uterine wall blastocyst becomes further embedded in the uterine wall proliferation of endometrial cells completes this process implantation finished by the fourteenth day after ovulation trophoblast cells secrete human chorionic gonadotropin hCG prompts corpus luteum to continue to produce hormones Placentation originates from both embryonic and endometrial tissues cells from trophoblast form extraembryonic mesoderm on the inner surface this layer of cells becomes the chorion from chorion extend projections called chorionic villi chorionic villi contain blood vessels endometrial blood vessels become leaky and fill intervillus spaces with blood chorionic villi and the decidua basalis together form the placenta embryonic barriers prevent free diffusion of substances from embryonic to maternal blood barriers consist of chorionic villi and endothelium of embryonic blood vessels by second or third month placenta begins to secrete estrogen and progesterone Embryonic development embryonic membranes also form during this time 1 Amnion develops from cells of the embryonic disc becomes filled with amniotic uid provides protection and constant temperature 2 Yolk sac from cells on opposite side of disc forms part of the digestive tube early producer of blood cells and source of primordial germ cells for gonads 3 Allantois forms base of umbilical cord 4 Chorion Gastrulation shortly after implantation blastocyst differentiates into gastrula gastrula contains three primary germ layers of cells by second week postfertilization l Ectoderm 2 Mesoderm mesenchyme 3 Endoderm embryonic disc elongates and develops a ridge down the center called the primitive streak mesoderm cells beneath the streak aggregate to form a rod called the notochord serves as first axial support of embryo embryo is about 2mm long Organogenesis By week 8 all adult organ systems are recognizable first major event is neurulation formation of spinal cord from cells of the ectoderm ectoderm on top of notochord thickens to form neural plate plate begins to fold inward producing the neural groove and neural folds by day 23 neural folds fuse and form neural tube by end of first month three primary brain vesicles are observable by end of second month cerebral hemispheres are present and brain waves can be detected embryo continues to fold to assume a cylindrical shape folds partially surround yolk sac part of sac that is enclosed becomes the primitive gut cells of primitive gut eventually become endoderm of digestive tract mesoderm forms the remainder of digestive organ layers clusters of mesoderm form on either side of the notochord the largest of the clusters are called somites each somite gives rise to a segment in the body wall segment vertebra rib muscle and skin folding of embryo produces the coelom or ventral body cavity Development of fetal circulation the first blood cells arise from the yolk sac during the first two weeks of development spaces appear in mesoderm spaces are lined with endothelial cells covered with mesenchyme and linked together two vessels forming the heart have fused and bent into an S shape by the end of the third week by 35 weeks heart is beating Unigue vascular modifications umbilical arteries and veins vascular shunts umbilical vein carries oxygenated blood from the placenta blood enters liver some blood travels to liver sinusoids and then out through hepatic veins most blood enters ductus venosus bypasses liver entirely to enter the inferior vena cava placental blood mixes with deoxygenated blood from lower extremities and organs blood flows from right atrium to right ventricle or through foramen ovale into left atrium blood from right ventricle enters pulmonary trunk blood in pulmonary trunk is diverted to the aorta through the ductus arteriosus this bypasses the pulmonary circuit blood though aorta eventually reaches umbilical arteries from branches of the external iliac arteries blood does not completely mix blood from inferior vena cava is preferentially diverted to foramen ovale blood from superior vena cava diverts to right ventricle Events of fetal development weeks 9 through 40 period of rapid growth cells continue to differentiate into specific tissue types and structures rapid cranial growth development of limbs lags behind Effects of pregnancy on mother Anatomical changes reproductive organs become increasingly vascularized breasts become engorged with blood some experience increased pigmentation of the skin uterus size increases dramatically placental production of relaxin loosens pubic and sacroiliac ligaments weight gain of approximately 30 pounds usually occurs only require 300 additional calories daily Metabolic changes placenta secretes human placental lactogen hPL to stimulate maturation of breasts for lactation maternal cells metabolize more fatty acids than glucose glucose is spared for fetus placenta also secretes human chorionic thyrotropin which raises blood calcium level Physiological changes acid reflux constipation nausea increased urine production vital capacity and respiratory rate increase residual volume declines as pregnancy continues blood volume increases 2540 cardiac output increases 2040 blood return is impaired Parturition usually occurs Within 15 days of due date 280 days from last menstrual period Fluid and Electrol e balance Electrolytes dissociate into ions in water because they are charged they can conduct an electrical current inorganic salts inorganic acids and bases some proteins electrolytes have ability to cause water shifts Water electrolvte and Acidbase balance Cell function is dependent on a carefully controlled uid medium Life threatening disorders can come from an imbalance in osmolarity electrolyte concentration or pH Three types of homeostatic balance are maintained 1 Water balance 7 ave daily intake and los are equal 2 Electrolye balance 7 amount absorbed in the small intestine equals what is lost 3 Acidbase balance 7 removal of H that equals what is created through metabolism Water balance Body water is distributed among uid compartments 65 as intracellular uid or ICF cytosol 35 as extracellular uid ECF 25 of this as interstitial uid 8 blood plasma and lymph 2 transcellular cerebrospinal bile humors of eye Water moves easily through plasma membranes Osmotic gradients between ICF and ECF don t last long and are driven by relative concentrations of solutes Water gains come from two sources 7 1 metabolic water 2 preformed from ingestion and drinking Water is lost from 7 urination in feces expired breath sweat cutaneous transpiration Regulation of intake Dehydration reduces blood volume and pressure and raises osmolarity The thirst center in the anterior hypothalamus that responds to Angiotensin produced in response to low pressure Antidiuretic hormone released in response to rising osmolarity Signals from osmoreceptors in the hypothalamus Regulation of output Kidneys can only slow effect of dehydration Kidneys cannot replace lost water or electrolytes Water output is primarily controlled by sodium ADH provides a mechanism independent of sodium Stimulated by decline in blood volume and increase in sodium concentration Hypothalamus responds by releasing ADH ADH stimulates cells in the collecting duct to synthesize aquaporins Aquaporins increase permeability to water Volume depletion results when water and sodium are lost in equal amounts Caused by trauma diarrhea Dehydration results when more water than sodium is lost Simplest cause is a lack of drinking water This can be a serous problem for elderly who need someone to bring water to them especially for those who can t express their need or have caretakers who are insensitive to it Infants are at increased risk because Increased metabolic rate requires rapid elimination in kidney Kidneys are not fully developed Greater body surface to volume ratio than adults causes them to lose more water from evaporation From sweating uid is extracted from the blood by secretory cells of sweat glands Blood then removes water from the interstitial uid to balance loss of pressure Fluid excess Volume excess does not effect ratio of water to sodium Caused by renal failure or aldosterone hypersecretion Hypotonic hydration due to more water than sodium is retained or ingested ADH hypersecretion can also cause through excessive water retention Electrol e balance Sodium Adult needs about 5 g per day ave diet provides 3 to 7g per day Fluctuations in sodium concentration directly stimulate the adrenal cortex to secrete aldosterone and renin stimulates release due to hypotension Only cells in DCT and ascending limb have receptors for aldosterone Aldosterone binds to nuclear receptors and activates the transcription of a gene for the NaK Pump In 10 to 30 minutes enough sodium is reabsorbed that it sodium concentration in the urine begins to fall and potassium concentration rises Water and Cl passively follow Na So urine will contain less NaCl and more K and have a lower pH However sodium concentration does not change because a proportionate amount of water is absorbed at the same time Hypertension inhibits the r 39 39 39 J 39 39 so the urine may contain up to 30mg of sodium a day ADH can lower the concentration of sodium by permitting water retention and stimulating thirst A drop in sodium concentration inhibits a release of ADH which leads to water loss Atrial naturetic peptide inhibits sodium and water reabsorption and the release of renin and Thus the kidneys eliminate more sodium and water Estrogen copies aldosterone so during the menstrual cycle increased estrogen leads to sodium reabsorption and then water retention Potassium Regulated by aldosterone along with sodium A rise in K concentration stimulates a release of aldosterone that stimulates renal secretion of K Acids bases and buffers Strong acid 7 ionizes freely giving up most of its hydrogen ions Weak acid 7 ionizes only slightly and retains most of its hydrogen Strong base 7 has a strong tendency to bind to H Weak base 7 binds to less of the available H Buffer 7 resists changes in pH by a strong acid or base into a weak one Physiological buffer 7 a system that stabilizes pH by controlling the body s output of acids bases or C02 Chemical buffer 7 a part of a physiological buffer that uses bicarbonate phosphate or protein Bicarbonate buffer CO2 H20 lt gt HzCO3 lt gt HC0339 H Carbonic acid act as a weak acid to the right Bicarbonate ions act as a weak base to the left Lungs help by removing C02 and keeping the reaction moving to the left Kidneys help by removing HCOg39to lower pH Phosphate buffer H2P0439 lt gt HPO4239 H Most important in the renal tubule and ICF Protein buffers COOH gt COO39 Hl Side groups like carboxyl can release H as pH rises Others have amino NHZ which bind to H NH2 H gt NH3 Respiratog control of pH Addition of C02 to body uids lowers pH Removal of CO2 raises pH Increased ventilation will raise pH Renal control of pH Hydrogen ions are transported from the blood to the ltrate contained within water or carbonic acid yes I know several steps have been omitted below See lecture for explanation 2 C02 and H20 enter the cell 4 Carbonic anhydrase catalyzes formation of HZCO3 5 H2C03 dissociates into HC03 7 and H 6 NalHl antiport transports H to ltrate If pH in ltrate is lower than 45 this reaction will not occur due to equal concentrations of H on either side of cell membrane Bicarbonate ions are ltered by the glomerulus gradually disappear from the ltrate due to process in gure 249 and appear in the peritubular capillary blood Bicarbonate ions are not reabsorbed only C02 is reabsorbed Bicarbonate ions come from step 5 Disorders of acidbase balance Respiratory acidosis 7 buildup of CO2 from poor ventilation Respiratory alkalosis 7 from hyperventilation Metabolic acidosis 7 increased production of organic acids such as lactic acid from anaerobic respiration or ketone bodies from alcoholism or diabetes mellitus KINS 2532 Learning Outcomes FINAL Topic 11

first intercourse Hymen has 1 opening to allow menstrual flow to pass through but it must be ruptured for intercourse to take place Physiology of the female reproductive system 1 Terms Puberty the development of the reproductive system starting with the secretion of hormones by the hypothalamus GnRH Menarchethe first menstrual period at puberty usually occurs around age 12 Pubarchethe development of pubic and axillary hair also the apocrine and sebaceous glands Amenorrhealack of menstruation Menopause the midlife change in hormone secretion in women is accompanied with menopause which is the cessation of menstruation o Hormone replacement therapylow doses of estrogen and progesterone used to replace the hormones NOT produced after menopause 2 28day ovarian and uterine cycle Happen in parallel Events in uterus not possible without events in ovaries 2a Phases OVARIAN Follicular phase from menstruation to ovulation characterized by development of follicles and oocytes Most variable part of the cycle hard to predict date of ovulation s divided into menstrual phase and preovulatory phase The 25 primary oocytes that were formed on day 25 of the previous cycle are transformed into secondary follicles GnRH levels high FSH and LH levels high Follicles and oocytes are developing but only one usually will achieve a mature Graafian stageOvaries secrete mostly estrogen UTERINE A series of changes in uterus under the influence of ovarian hormones Also called the menstrual cycle Involves the endometrium First halfof cycle is divided into menstrual phase and proliferative phase 0 Menstrual phase Blood serous fluid endometrial tissuefunctional layer and fibrinolysin are discarded About 40 ml of unclotted blood and 35 ml of serous fluid 0 Proliferative phase growth of the endometrium of the basal layer by mitosis due to estrogen Development of progesterone receptors on the endometrial cells OVULATIONtriggered by LH midcycle short process in which secondary oocyte is expelled from Graafian follicle into pelvic cavity to be picked up by fimbriae The spike in LH is due to an increase in estrogen from the follicles An increase in blood flow to the follicles causes them to swell rapidly collagenase weakens the walls of the ovary and fluid flows out of the Graafian follicle with the secondary oocyte which is swept up by the fimbriae into the uterine tube OVARIAN Postovulatary phase second half mostly regulated by corpus luteum secreting high levels of progesterone s divided into luteal and premenstrual phases 0 Luteal phase corpus luteum is formed at site of ovulation from the ruptured follicle under the direction of LH INCREASE in progesterone stimulates the secretory phase of the menstrual cycle 0 Premenstrual phases if pregnancy does not occur the corpus luteum becomes the corpus albicans which causes a DECREASE in progesterone leading to menstruation Spiral arteries constrict causing endometrial ischemia and necrosis as discussed in section 3e of internal reproductive organs UTERINEMENSTRUAL Second half of cycle is divided into secretory and premenstrual phases and is mostly regulated by corpus luteum o Secretory phase o thickening of the 39 39 due to r C that 39 39 glands to secrete glycogen Functional layer is thickening because ofaccumulation of fluid NOT DUE TO MITOSIS 0 Premenstrual phase o If pregnancy does not occur the corpus luteum in ovaries becomes the corpus albicans by the beginning of the next ovarian cycle which causes a DECREASE in progesterone leading to menstruation Pools of blood accumulate on the stratum functionalis which is shed during menstrual phase of next cycle 2b Hormonal control of the ovarian cycle Hypothalamus pituitary ovaries9 uterus 0 Step 1 Gonadotropin releasing hormone GnRH from hypothalamus 0 Step 2 GnRH stimulates the anterior pituitary lobe to produce FSH and LH 0 Step 3 FSH and LH directly stimulate the ovarian cycle 0 FSH leads to the development of follicles and release of estrogen o LH stimulates ovulation and leads to the development of the corpus luteum and release of progesterone o Estrogen and progesterone directly stimulate the menstrual cycle 3 28day menstrual uterine cycle 3a Events that occur during uterine cycle See 2a 3b Hormonal control of the menstrual uterine cycle the follicles produce estrogen which stimulates the uterus to replace its endometrium through MITOSIS The corpus luteum produces progesterone which stimulates the uterus to replace its endometrium by secretions and fluid accumulation First half of cycle ovaries produce mostly estrogen high levels second halfmostly progesterone high levels 4 Physiological effects of estrogen and progesterone SEE TABLE ON HORMONES Overview and general

testosterone and sperm 1b location and blood supply Testes are located in the scrotum The scrotum is a pouch of skin or superficial fascia that holds the testes It is separated into two compartments by the median septum The spermatic cord arises from the scrotum and enters the abdominal wall through the inguinal canal The spermatic cord holds the testicular arteries veins nerves and lymphatic vessels 1c Thermoregulation of testes o Pampiniform plexus formed by a network of testicular veins surrounded by testicular arteries and is important for thermoregulation of testes The testicular veins ascend near the testicular arteries which are branches of the abdominal aorta o This countercurrent exchange cools the arterial blood as it descends into the testes The arterial blood cools as it descends because the venous blood takes the heat from it while it rises o Dartos muscle smooth muscle that wrinkles the skin to decrease the surface area of the scrotum 0 Cremaster muscle segments of the internal oblique that pulls the testes toward the body to warm them 1d Histology of the testes 0 Tunica vaginalis outer tunic of the testes descended into the scrotum with the testes 0 Tunica

mitosis until death 0 Type B spermatogonia are the cells that will become the sperm and travel across the BTB inward toward the lumen tight junctions are formed behind them 0 Will undergo meiosis to become a primary spermatocyte a secondary spermatocyte and then a spermatid 0 Spermiogenesis is the final cellular changestransformation that turn spermatids into spermatozoa This is when excessive cytoplasm is discarded and it grows a tail 1f importance of spermatozoa The acrosome contains enzymes that are later used to penetrate the egg if the sperm is successful The mitochondria produce ATP needed for the beating of the tail when the sperm migrates up the female reproductive tract 1g BTB Bloodtestesbarrier Components made out of sustentacular cells with tight junction Function prevents

reproductive system 1 Physiological effects of testosterone SEE TABLE 2 Male reproductive function 2a Hormonal regulation of the male reproductive system 0 As hypothalamus matures it begins producing GnRH o Triggers male reproductive function at puberty and stimulates the anterior pituitary to produce FSH and LH o LH stimulates the interstitial cells of the testes to secrete testosterone o FSH stimulates the sustentacular cells to a protein called androgen bindin protein ABP into the lumen of the seminiferous tubules o ABP raises the testosterone level in the tubules and the epididymis by binding and accumulating the hormone 0 The body can modulate FSH secretion and sperm production without having to reduce LH and testosterone secretion 0 The mechanism for this is a hormone called inhibin secreted by the sustentacular cells if the seminiferous tubules o nhibin selectively suppresses FSH output from the pituitary N U Male sexual response 0 Erection Parasympathetic reflex PS refelex with nitric oxide NO release in response to thoughts visual or auditory signals direct sensory stimulation of penis or both When NO is present it stimulates the production of cGMP that dilates the arteries in the penis The deep artery of the penis dilates erectile tissue becomes engorged and the penis becomes erect Then the bulbourethral gland secretes bulbourethral fluid 0 Ejaculation Sympathetic reflex 0 Emission Seminal vesicles and the prostate gland secrete their components of the seminal fluid the ductus vas deferens goes through peristalsis which moves the sperm into the ampulla The ampulla contracts and moves sperm into the urethra point opf no return Ejaculation will happen and should not be stopped Internal urethra orrifice closes to prevent passage of urine into urethra o Expulsion ejaculation of semen The prostate gland and seminal vesicles secrete any additional components they have then the bulbocavernosus and ischialvacernosis contract the root and bulb

substances secreted by cells into the extracellular fluids that regulate the metabolic function of other cells almost all can be classified as amino acidbased or steroids Paracrine Messengers secreted from a source other than an endocrine gland local hormones that do not typically in uence distant target cells ortravel in blood Eicosanoids One family of paracrine secretions 4 types 1Leukotrines mediate inflammation 2Prostacyclin Inhibits blood clotting and vasoconstriction 3Prostaglandins multiple effects eg raise blood pressure increase uterine contractions local controllers of metabolic activity 4Thromboxanes override prostacyclin to stimulate vasoconstriction and clotting Mechanisms of hormone action hormones increase or decrease rates of normal cellular processes precise response is dictated by target cell hormones typically produce 1 Changes on plasma membrane permeability andor electrical state 2 Synthesis of proteins or certain regulatory molecules 3 Enzyme activation or deactivation 4 Induction of secretory activity 5 Stimulation of mitosis Cell activation amino acidbased hormones cannot enter target cell must use second messengers cyclic AMP cAMP is the best understood second messenger three plasma membrane components determine intracellular levels of cAMP 1 Hormone receptor 2 Signal transducer 3 Effector enzyme Steps 11 ligand hormone binds with receptor the rst messenger G protein dissociates from effector by converting GTP to GDP Pi 2 The G protein travels to activate adenylate cyclase 3 Adenylate cyclase produces cAMP second messenger from ATP 4 7 6 cAMP stimulates a cascade of protein kinase enzyme production within the cell a single kinase enzyme may trigger hundreds of reactions some cells have G proteins that inhibit cAMP production cell reaction to CAMP production depends on specific protein kinases it contains a single cell may have different types of protein kinases that each have a distinct substrate PIPCalcium mechanism Some hormones act through third messengers such as calcium Steps 1 and 2 same as cAMP 3 Activated phospholipase splits PP2 now have diacylglycerol DAG and P3 Both act as second messengers 4 DAG activates specific protein kinases 5 and 6 P3 binds to gated calcium channels or it triggers the release of calcium from the smooth ER 79 Ca in turn become thirdmessengers opens other ion channels functions as a cofactor to activate enzymes binds to calmodulin which in turn activates protein kinases Steroids and Direct Gene Activation steroid hormones are lipid soluble therefore they can easily enter the cell and bind to intracellular receptor this activates receptor so it can bind to speci c protein on the surface of DNA thus speci c genes can be turned on Hormonetarget cell specificity cell must have specific protein receptors to respond to a particular protein Target cell activation is dependent on 1 Blood levels of hormone 2 Relative number ofreceptors 3 Af nity strength of bond between hormone and receptor often target cells will produce more receptors in response to rising blood levels process is called upregulation in other cases prolonged exposure to hormone will desensitize cells process is called downregulation some hormones are rapidly degraded by enzymes in target cells most are removed by enzymes in kidneys and liver Control of hormone release most hormones are regulated by some form of a negativefeedback system 1 Humoral stimuli secretion based on response to changing blood levels of ions and nutrients cells of parathyroid glands monitor Ca levels when too low PTH is released 2 Neural stimuli stimulation of adrenal medulla by sympathetic neurons causes release of norepinephrine and epinephrine 3 Hormonal stimuli anterior pituitary is stimulated to release hormones by the presence of hormones from the hypothalamus hypothalamus pituitary neuroendocrine axis in some cases nervous system can override normal endocrine controls blood sugar levels rise in response to activation of the sympathetic nervous system Major endocrine organs 1 Pituitary gland often called the hypophysis located in sella turcica connects to the hypothalamus by the infundibulum posterior lobe produces oxytocin and antidiuretic hormone both are released directly into the blood from neurons that originate in hypothalamus no direct neural connection between posterior and anterior lobes there is a vascular connection between posterior lobe and anterior lobe Hormones produced by anterior pituitary adenohypophysis 4 hormones are called tropins they regulate the secretory action of other endocrine glands adrenocorticotropic hormone ACTH thyroid stimulating hormone TSH follicle stimulating hormone FSH luteinizing hormone LH 2 hormones are somatotropes somatotropes exert their effects on nonendocrine targets growth hormone GH prolactin PRL all but growth hormone and prolactin act through cAMP secondmessenger systems Functions 1 Adrenocorticotropic hormone ACTH stimulates cells of adrenal cortex helps body to resist stressors 2 Thyroid stimulating hormone TSH stimulates normal development and secretory activity ofthyroid gland thyroid hormones increase metabolic rate 3 Follicle stimulating hormone FSH stimulates gamete production 4 Luteinizing hormone LH jointly with FSH to cause maturation of ovarian follicle stimulates production of testosterone production in males 5 Prolactin stimulate milk production is inhibited in males Posterior pituitary and hypothalamic hormones two hormones are produced in hypothalamus and stored in posterior pituitary 1 Oxytocin strong stimulator of uterine contraction may play a role in sexual arousal of nonlactating females and males 2 Antidiuretic hormone ADH inhibits or prevents urine formation Other endocrine glands Thyroid Thyroid hormone increases metabolic rate Calcitonin lowers blood calcium levels largest pure endocrine gland in the body gland is composed of hollow follicles surrounded by follicle cells between follicles are clusters of cells called parafollicular cells Parathyroid parathyroid hormone PTH raises calcium level in the blood Adrenal su rarenal Corticosteroids from cortex of gland regulate electrolyte concentrations and stimulate glucose production Three types 1 Minleralocorticoids regulate electrolyte concentrations in extracellular fluids particularly potassium and sodium most abundant is aldosterone aldosterone reduces excretion of sodium from the body its primary target are special cells in the kidneys that are stimulated to absorb sodium from the forming urine it also enhances reabsorption from perspiration saliva and gastric juice because water will follow sodium aldosterone plays a role in blood pressure management secretion of aldosterone is stimulated by rising blood levels of potassium low blood levels of sodium decreasing blood volume and pressure 2 Glucocorticoids cortisol is most abundant cortisol release is promoted by ACTH triggered by the hypothalamus cortisol is released in bursts that occur in a patter throughout a 24 hour period levels peak in the morning and are lowest around the beginning of sleep
