    Introduction of Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors LeMone & Burke (2011) stated that in other to accurately discuss angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, it is very important to first of all briefly discuss about the three forms of angiotensin. Angiotensin I is produced by the action of renin on a protein called angiotensinogen, which is formed by the liver. Angiotensin I is then transformed into angiotensin II in the blood by the action of angiotensin-converting enzyme ACE. Angiotensin II therefore causes contraction of the muscle surrounding the blood vessels that leads to the narrowing of the vessels. When this process occurred (narrowing of the vessels) it causes the pressure within the vessels to increase which leads to hypertension, elevation of blood pressure.…

    Renin secretion is stimulated by decreased blood volume, decreased renal perfusion, sodium and water depletion. Subsequently, renin promotes the conversion of angiotensinogen to angiotensin I. Angiotensin I is then converted to angiotensin II through the angiotensin converting enzyme. Due to angiotensin II being a potent vasoconstrictor, it also stimulates aldosterone secretion leading to sodium and water retention. The subsequent renal retention of sodium and water, coupled with an increase in…

    creatinine clearance. So, control resulted in decrease in creatinine clearance. Urine Sodium Clearance 99.5% of sodium in filtrate is typically reabsorbed by the renal tubules (Sherwood, 2015, pp. 505). Sodium is reabsorbed in the proximal tubule and loop of Henle regardless of sodium load. Aldosterone is the main factor when kidneys determine the rate of sodium reabsorption. Aldosterone causes an increase in sodium reabsorption. Aldosterone is usually secreted by the adrenal cortex when…

    well. Hypertension is often nicknamed the silent killer because there are usually no symptoms associated with it. Generally speaking it does not have symptoms however when blood pressure is very high it can cause headaches, dizziness, ringing in the ears, shortness of breath and nausea. One of the causes on systematic level is renal artery stenosis. This is the narrowing of the arteries that transport blood to the kidney. Since the arteries are narrowed they bring in less blood to the…

    Sarah Gourgues BIO LAB 1130.036 December 1, 2016 They call me DJ Enzyme because I 'm always breaking it down Abstract: Although protein function is thought to depend on the dynamics of the molecule and its environment contribute to catalytic mechanisms. The increase and decrease of temperatures affected the rate of reaction. In nature, organisms adjust the conditions of their enzymes to produce an optimum rate of reaction, where necessary, may have enzymes which are adapted to function well…

    rhizospheric diazotrophs. Previous studies have investigated that soil microbial diversity, soil enzyme activities and crop yield could be affected by land management practices and all these soil properties were increased under intercropping systems than monoculture (Yang et al. 2013; Li et al. 2015b; Wang et al. 2014; Zou et al. 2011). Moreover, our previous study also discussed that soil biochemical and enzymes have direct effect by intercropping system…

    Enzymes are known as catalysts that cause reactions to occur more rapidly by lowering the reaction’s activation energy. A reaction’s activation energy is known as the minimum amount of energy required to get a chemical reaction started1. In order for cells to efficiently manage thousands of different chemical reactions, they make use of biological catalysts. Without these catalysts, biological reactions would not be able to proceed at a proper rate necessary to maintain life. Most, but not all,…

    Group Members Zoe Ching, Juliet Contreras, Ailly Lam, Aleksi Ska. Background information Enzymes are biological catalysts, which speed up the rate of chemical reactions. The pancreas produces a concentrated solution containing a mixture of enzymes – amylase, lipase and protease. In this experiment you will examine the effect of protease on casein, the protein found in milk. When the protease breaks down the casein, the opaque solution will become transparent. Theoretically, Enzyme activity…
