reduction is the ____________ from a molecule
addition of electrolns and H+ ions
pyruvic back to lactic acid
example of reduction reaction with the addition of H+ ions to turn back to lactic
Redox reactions
are always coupled. Examples are digestive reactions with carbs, fats and protein metabolism

satiety center is
hunger center is
in hypothalamus

inhibits hunger center
constantly turned on
food intake mostly regulated by
blood glucose levels
blood glucose levels act upon what center
hunger or satiety centers
fatty acids act upon
satiety center to inhibit eating
body temp
affects metabolism and eating habits
stretching of GI tract
decreases eating
CCK decreases
phychological factos: anorexia etc
decrease eating
chemical substances by which we derive energy and help form body components
glycogen stored in 2 places
skeletal muscle(80%) and liver (20%)
part of enzyme systems which catalyze metabolic reactions
minerals and vitamins
coenzymes needed in order to utilize nutrients
acts as a solvent, in hydrolytic reactions, coolant, lube and maintain body temp
oxidation of glucose is also called
cell respiration
electron transport chain is in the
mitochondria of cells
oxidation of glucose is the
chief source of energy
2 ATP in glycolysis
2 ATP in Krebs
34 in electron transport chain
what 1 M glucose yields
during digestion process, glycogen is stored
in the liver
many glucose come to form glycogen is called_________ and stim'd by_______
glycogenesis; insulin
breakdown of glycogen in liver to put more sugar in blood is called_______ and stim'd by__________
glycogenolysis; glucagon
making of glucose from sources other than carbs. Making new glucose
largest reserve of energy
produce 131M apt
digestion into amino acids to make new body proteins for growth and repair
protein metabolism
amino acids are deaminated in liver to ketoacids,glucose and fatty acids
They then enter Kreb's with CO enz. A
Metabolism regulated and controlled by
controlled by enzymes and regulated by hormones
rate at which heat is produced
exercise, nervous system, ingestion of proteins, age, gender, climate, sleep or malnourised, surface area to vol. ratio
factors affecting BMR
bowmans capsule and glomerulus
make up renal corpuscle
afferent arteriole,
bowman's capsule,
prox. conv. tub,
des loop of henle,
asc. loop of henle,
dist. conv. tub that drains into collecting duct
flow of urine through nephron
blood vessels in order through kidney
1)Renal artery
2)segmental artery
3) interlobar artery
4) arcuate artery
5) interlobular artery
5) afferent arteriole
6) glomerular capillary
7) efferent arteriole
8) peritubular capillary
9) interlobular veins
10) arcuate veins
11) interlobar veins
12)renal veins
Main fx of kidney is to_________
filter blood of toxic wastes
control blood conc and vol by removing selective amounts of water and solutes
regulates pH of blood
kidneys unit of structure is
epithelium in nephron
is simple cuboidal except for bowman's capsule(simple squamous) and loop of henle (low cuboidal)
aff. art is larger than eff. art. Why?
larger due to larger vol with higher pressure. Eff. is smaller due to less pressure and maintainance of pressure inside nephron
Glo filt contains
water and dissolved blood components in plasma
hydrostatic pressure in ________and is highest and promotes GFR due to it's high pressure
afferent arteriole
myogenic ass. with
smooth muscle stim'd by symp. nervous sys response
myogenic causes smooth muscle to
vasoconstrict afferent and efferant art. which decrease b/p and GFR
Function of JGA is to
regulate diameter of afferent arteriole and hence, renal blood pressure by detecting low Cl levels when b/p decreases
What uptake of fluid from kidney tubules is called
water reabsorption
hydrostatic pressure- capsular pressure- colloidal pressure =
net filtration pressure
In nephron, most reabsorption of substances take place in what part of nephron?
proximal conv. tubule by active transport
Facilitative reabsorption in collecting duct and distal conv.tubule affected by
principal cells in distal conv. tubule respond to
ADH and aldosterone for Na reabsorption for nerve and muscle action potential
permeability of collecting ducts regulated by
Normal daily vol of urine
direction of H20 movement of fluid compartments determined by
various osmotic pressures exerted by various ions and proteins
what area stim's desire to drink
thirst center in the hypothalamus
how ADH saves water?
by making dist. conv. tubule and collecting ducts more permeable so that the movement of H20 is reabsorbed back to blood. This keeps more H20 in the system
cation necessary for conduction of action potential and maintaining osmotic pressure
are positive
are negative
Primary intracellular ions are
K, phosphate and protein
In tissues, CO2 goes out and HCO3 goes out of RBC
and Cl goes in
In lungs, CO2 goes out of RBC and HCO3 goes in RBC
and Cl goes out

How H+ ions are eliminated by body?
through urine
Levels of Na in extracellular fluid regulated by what hormone
testosterone produce where?
in testes, near seminiferous tubules are the Leydig cells that produce it.
Why testes are in scrotum outside the body?
because spermatogenesis needs to take place in lower than body temp.
spermatogonium located
in the seminiferous tubules inside the testes
spermatogonium divides by mitosis with
4 stages and diploid # chromosomes
