  • Endochondral Ossification Research Paper

    Endochondral Ossification All osteogenic tissue from the neck down is made by endochondral ossification, with the exception of the clavicles. The model that bone will eventually replace is composed of hyaline cartilage, the most common cartilage, this process tends to be more difficult than intramembranous ossification since all hyaline cartilage most be decomposed as bone tissue is created. Everything begins at the primary ossification center, which is located in the center of diaphysis of the…

  • Causes Of Osteoporosis

    everyday activities. Our bones specifically are unique in nature; they reconstruct themselves in a process where cells called osteoblasts regulate bone formation while another pair of cells called osteoclasts regulate resorption of minerals such as calcium and vitamin D. Deterioration of the skeleton is due to enlarged bone weakening by osteoclasts and decreased bone development by osteoblasts, resulting as the diseases known as Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis affects millions of people and causes…

  • Hot Packs Lab

    Introduction: Hot packs work by dissolving a salt, such as calcium chloride, in water to create an exothermic reaction. When salts are dissolved in water it requires energy to break their bonds apart, but energy is also released when the ions are surrounded by the water molecules. If more energy is released than is required to break the bonds, the reaction will be exothermic and will produce heat. In hot packs the water is kept separate from the salt, and when it needs to be activated, they are…

  • Unknown Salt Lab Report

    indicates the possible identities. When salt #287 was exposed to flame, the color that was noted was a bright opaque orange, whereas the flame color for Sodium Chloride was a yellow color. Due to this, based on this test only, salt #287 could be Calcium Chloride dihydrate, which is the only salt to produce an orange flame. This lab test shows that the unknown salt is not Sodium Chloride as their flame colors are…

  • Sex Differences

    parafibromin protein which is a tumor suppressor as well. A mutation here causes a decrease of the parafibromin protein. The CASR gene is involved in the production of the calcium-sensing receptor protein (CaSR). CaSR helps to regulate the amount of calcium in the body, by controlling the production of the parathyroid hormone. The calcium molecules bind to the CaSR and this activates the receptor. The activated receptor sends signals to block the production and release of the parathyroid…
