  • Chicago Fire Department Incident Analysis

    handled by the Chicago Fire Department. The incident involved a gasoline tanker that struck a dumpster and started to lose product, which then ignited. This paper will also discuss gasoline, as it was the primary fuel involved with this scene. Time will be spent looking at gasoline to understand its characteristics and determine if the fire department used the correct suppressant and tactics for this call. The Chicago Fire Department used water and foam on this fire, so this paper will analyze which type of foam was most likely used and how it was applied. Lastly, this paper will discuss if the foam used for this type of fire was appropriate and effective. On May 29th of 1989 the Chicago Fire Department was dispatched to an incident involving a fully loaded gasoline tanker that struck a dumpster and sustained damage to the tanker. This damage occurred about midway up the tanker and was spilling gasoline onto the street which then ignited. When the first…

  • Los Angeles Fire Department Research Paper

    Los Angeles Fire Department For my research I chose the Los Angeles Fire Department. Their Mission statement is “to preserve life and property, promote public safety and foster economic growth through leadership, management and actions, as an all risk life safety response provider.” I found it important to note that LA city is the biggest in size and second most populated city in the United States, so they have a very big and important mission. History- The city of Los Angeles was founded in…

  • The Role Of Macromolecules In Eukaryotic Cells

    Eukaryotic cells are cells whose nucleus is bound by a membrane; these cells contain organelles, which are structures each enclosed within its own membrane found only in eukaryotic cells, each organelle has a specific function inside a cell. One type of organelle is a lysosome, which are the organelles that dispose of waste and toxins. Lysosomes are fluid filled sacks which range in size from 0.1 to 1.2 micrometres and contain around fifty degradative enzymes that enable it to effectively…

  • Animal Cell Process Lab Report

    proteins and play a vital role in protein synthesis. Its long and far-reaching structure allows it to perform its function more efficiently; helping transport substances around the cell, also increasing its surface area to volume ratio allowing more ribosome’s to be situated on it, speeding up protein production. As the protein enters the Rough ER, our craft follows closely behind. The protein is being further processed by enzymes, adding polysaccharides to form complex protein sugars known as…

  • The Cell Membrane: The Most Important Parts Of The Cell

    The Cell Membrane is one of the most important parts of the cell. If not for the cell membrane it would be extremely easy for things to invade the cell; this is because on of the cell membranes job is to control what come in and out of the cell (i.e. ions, viruses, etc). Also the cell membrane is what helps hold the cell and all of its organelles Endoplasmic Reticulum (AKA the ER), smooth and rough whats the difference? The smooth ER does not have any ribosomes while the rough ER is covered in…

  • Organelles Of Animal Cells Essay

    covers the organelle and contain its skin as the inner membrane folds over many times and create layered structures. The energy made is called ATP. ATP stands for adenosine triphosphate. It’s a single nucleotide with two extra energy storing phosphate groups. When food molecules are broken down inside cells, some of the energy in the molecules is stored temporarily in ATP. Cells need a steady supply of ATP to function. The Golgi apparatus helps the cell maintain homeostasis by modifying,…

  • Organelles Essay

    When liver cells are exposed to a drug, the amount of smooth ER and its detoxifying enzymes increase. The body’s tolerance of a drug can strengthen which means that more of the drug will be needed in order to achieve the desired effect. This is how addiction can occur because a person will need more and more of a drug in order for the drug to work. An organelle named the Golgi apparatus works closely with the ER; it refines, stores, receives, and distributes chemical products of the cell.…

  • Animal Cell Structure

    specialized cell I have chosen to focus on is a nerve cell within the brain. “The bulk of the brain is made up of structural cells termed glial cells and astrocytes. Lying in amongst these cells are neurons, specialized cells that conduct electrical impulses along their processes. It has been estimated that the average human brain contains about 100 billion neurons and, on average, each neuron is connected to 1000 other neurons. This results in the generation of vast and complex neural networks…

  • Lens Fiber Differentiation Experiment

    Lens Fiber Differentiation and its effects on certain organelles. This writing exercise analyzes two separate but related scientific articles, “The fate of the Golgi Apparatus and the Endoplasmic reticulum During Lens Fiber Cell Differentiation” and “Coincident Loss of Mitochondria and Nuclei During Lens Fiber Cell Differentiation” both which analyze and study Lens Fiber Differentiation. The writing assignment will be based on four sections:(1) Background of the research (2) Methods used…

  • Impact On TRMPLIV

    TRPML1’s Impact on MLIV In the article, “Fusion of lysosomes with secretory organelles leads to uncontrolled exocytosis in the lysosomal storage disease mucolipidosis type IV” discussed the impacts of TRMPL1 on MLIV. Lysosomes are important in maintaining healthy cells, however, with the absence of lysosomal TRP channel TRPML1 then the lysosomal pH becomes more acidic because of the calcium leakage; hence, this makes lysosomes more sensitive to fusing, and due to being near exocytosis regulating…
