AIR REMAINING IN THE LUNGS AFTER A FORCED EXPIRATION
RESIDUAL VOLUME
ANIMAL WITH A FOUR-CHAMBERED STOMACH; ANIMAL THAT COMMONLY CHEWS ITS CUD
RUMINANT
OVULATION OCCURS NATURALLY WITHIN THE CYCLE
SPONTANEOUS OVULATOR
VOLUME OF AIR EXCHANGED DURING EUPNEA
TIDAL VOLUME
ABDUCTION
THE JOINT MOVEMENT WHEREBY AN EXTREMITY IS MOVED AWAY FROM THE MEDIAN PLANE
ABOMASUM
THE TRUE STOMACH OF THE RUMINANT; SECRETES ACIDS, MIXES AND CONTRACTS INGESTA, AND MOVES LIQUID CHYME INTO THE SMALL INTESTINE
ABORAL DIRECTION
AWAY FROM THE MOUTH
ABSORPTIVE CELL
A CELL COMMONLY FOUND IN THE SMALL INTESTINE THAT CAN ABSORB NUTRIENTS FROM THE LUMINAL SURFACE VIA PHAGOCYTOSIS AND PINOCYTOSIS
ACCOMMODATION
THE FOCUSING OF THE LENS OF THE EYE TO ALLOW CLOSE-UP AND FARAWAY VISION. IT IS ACCOMPLISHED BY THE CILIARY BODY THAT APPLY OR RELIEVE TENSION ON THE SUSPENSORY LIGAMENTS THAT ATTACH TO THE LENS.
ACETABULUM
THE SOCKET PORTION OF THE BALL-AND-SOCKET HIP JOINT. IT IS FORMED AT THE JUNCTION OF THE ILIUM, ISCHIUM AND PUBIS BONES OF THE PELVIS
ACETYLCHOLINE
NEUROTRANSMITTER; ASSOCIATED WITH PARASYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM EFFECTS EVEN THOUGH IT IS THE NEUROTRANSMITTER USED IN THE PREGANGLIONIC NEURON IN BOTHE THE SYMPATHETIC AND PARASYMPATHETIC NERIOUS SYSTEMS; HAS A STIMULATORY EFFECT ON THE GI TRACT; INCREASES SECRETIONS AND MUSCLES CONTRACTIONS IN THE ESOPHAGUS, STOMACH, RUMINANT FORESTOMACHS, INTESTINE AND COLON

ACROMEGALY
A FORM OF GIANTISM THAT RESULTS FROM AN EXCESS OF GROWTH HORMONE
ACROSOME
THE CAPLIKE STRUCTURE THAT PARTIALLY COVERS THE HEADS OF SPERMATOZOA. IT CONTAINS DIGESTIVE ENZYMES THAT ARE ACTIVATED WHEN THE CELLS ENTER THE FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE TRACT. THEY HELP THE CELL PENETRATE THROUGH THE LAYERS AROUND THE OVUM TO FERTILIZE IT.
ACTH
ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE
ACTIN
A PROTEIN THAT COMPOSES MICROFILAMENTS. IT IS FOUND IN THE CYTOSKELETON, IN MYOFIBRILS OF MUSCLE FIBERS, AND IN SPINDLE FIBERS DURING CELL DIVISION
ACTIN FILAMENTS
ONE OF THE TWO CONTRACTILE PROTEINS OF MUSCLE (MYOSIN IS THE OTHER ONE) THAT SLIDE OVER EACH OTHER TO PRODUCE THE SHORTENING OF THE MUSCLE CELL THAT WE REFER TO A MUSCLE CONTRACTION
ACTION POTENTIAL
THE CHANGE IN ELECTRICAL CHARGES THAT OCCURS DURING NERVE DEPOLARIZATION; ALSO CALLED THE NERVE IMPULSE; THE CHANGE IN CELLULAR POLARITY THAT DEFINE THE ELECTRICAL ACTIVITY OF CARDIAC TISSUE
ACTIVE IMMUNITY
ACTIVATION OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM BY EITHER ADMINISTRATION OF A VACCINE THAT CONTAINS A MODIFIED ANTIGEN OR EXPOSURE TO THE ANTIGEN
ACTIVE SITE
THE SPECIFIC AREA ON AN ENZYME THAT CONNECTS WITH A SUBSTRATE TO CAUSE A CHEMICAL REACTION
ACTIVE TRANSPORT
THE PROCESS THAT MOVES IONS OR MOLECULES ACROSS THE CELL MEMBRANE AND AGAINST THE CONCENTRATION GRADIENT, REQUIRING ENERGY OR ATP TO BE ACCOMPLISHED
ADDUCTION
THE JOINT MOVEMENT WHEREBY A EXTREMITY IS MOVED TOWARD THE MEDIAN PLANE
ADENINE
ONE OF THE NUCLEOTIDES PRESENT IN BOTH DNA AND RNA. IT IS A PURINE BASE THAT CORRESPONDS TO RNA'S URACIL AND DNA'S THYMINE.
