    Excerpt: ... ncy, eventually decreasing ventilation Peripheral and central chemoreceptors will increase firing frequency, eventually increasing ventilation. There will be no change in respiration. Peripheral chemoreceptors will increase firing frequency, which will lead to an increase in ventilation. All above answers are incorrect. Correct answers: 1. b. 2. d. Central chemoreceptors are sensitive to pH in the brain extracellular fluid due to diffusion of CO2 (not the hydrogen ions) through blood brain barrier. ...

BIPN 100 Hand-Out #7 FIBER TYPE White Glycolytic POWER/INTENSITY TYPE OF TRAINING TWITCH DURATION High Anaerobic Fast Short (therefore fatigues rapidly) Red (because of Myoglobin) Oxidative Low Aerobic Slow Long (therefore fatigues slowly) *See Table on Lecture 22, p.6 of Outline TONICITY VS. OSMOLARITY *See Problem Set #8:5 WHAT HAPPENS TO VOLUME & OSMOLARITY WHEN YOU: Add ions: Volume of extracellular fluid increases at the expense of the intracellular fluid (because ions cannot traverse across the plasma membrane) Osmolarity of all three compartments becomes increased (the extracellular compartment's osmolarity increases because solute was added; the intracellular compartment's osmolarity increases because water was lost) Add water: Volumes of all three compartments increase Osmolarity of all three compartments reduced EQUATIONS TO KNOW: Concentration = Quantity / Volume Interstitial Fluid Volume = Total Extracellular Fluid Volume Plasma Volume Intracellular Volume = Total Body Water Total Extrac ...

    Excerpt: ... Lecture 5b Cell membranes Osmosis is the diffusion of water down its "free molecule" concentration gradient Solutions are made of solutes disolved in a solvent -Water is the main solvent in biology Osmotic concentration is the concentration of all solutes in a solution If two solutions have equal osmotic conentrations If they differ, hypertonic means more solutes and hypotonic means less solutes Water diffuses from hypotonic fluids to hypertonic ones If the ctyoplasm is hyperosmotic, water fom the outside will flow into the cell This causes swelling and the cytoplasm pushes out against the membrane (hydrostatic pressure) Osmotic pressure is the pressure that works against hydrostatic pressure Endocytosis is the process of "engulfing" material from the extracellular space Two different types: -Phagocytosis: "Cell eating" particulate matter -Pinocytosis: "Cell drinking" extracellular fluid s Exocytosis is the opposite of endocytosis It releases material from the cell ...

Unless otherwise noted, assume that the neuron is being bathed in a solution that is identical in composition from normal human extracellular fluid . A. Sodium B. Calcium C. Potassium D. Iodine E. Chloride 1. _ Adding high concentrations of this ion to the extracellular fluid would strongly depolarize the neuron. 2. _ Removing this from the extracellular fluid would make it impossible to generate an action potential 3. _ If you depolarized the neuron with an electrode, this ion would flow out of the cell 4. _ Removing this ion from the extracellular fluid would make it impossible for the neurotransmitter GABA to generate an IPSP. 5. _ The absence of this ion from the extracellular fluid would not alter the normal electrical properties of the neuron. 6, _ Removing this ion from the extracellular fluid would make it prevent the neurotransmitter ACh from efficiently generating ...

    Excerpt: ... e with the environment occurs as substances dissolved in the aqueous medium of cells diffuse and are transported across the cells plasma membrane. This organization only works if all the cells of the animal have access to a suitable aqueous environment. The animals body plan must reflect the need the animal has for a suitable aqueous environment. (Page 822) Most animals are more complex and made up of compact masses of cells; their outer surfaces are relatively small compared with their volumes. Extensively folded or branched internal surfaces facilitate the necessary exchanges with the environment in these animals. Complex body forms do have distinct benefits, they: a. Protect against predators b. Enable rapid movement c. Break down food to control the release of stored energy (Page 943) Biology 110b Chapter 40.4, 45.1-45.2 Book notes An animal hormone is a chemical signal that is secreted into the extracellular fluid , is carried by the circulatory system and communicates regulatory messages within t ...

    Excerpt: ... Cell membrane structure and Function The cell membrane is usually the outermost barrier of the cell. An exception to this is found in cells which have a cell wall plants - cellulose Chitin- fungi The cell wall is mainly for structural support and protection. It usually doesnt act as a barrier to molecules. The Plasma Membrane The plasma membrane contains the cell but still allows the cell to interact with the environment. (See figs 4-1) extracellular fluid (outside) glycoprotein binding site phospholipid bilayer carbohydrate cholesterol phospholipid receptor protein transport protein protein filaments recognition protein cytoplasm (inside) The plasma membrane functions: 1. Isolate the cell environment 2. Regulate exchange between inside and outside 3. Communicate with other cells 4. Identify the cell type -Plasma membrane is the membrane at the boundary of every cell that acts as a selective barrier, thereby regulating the cells chemical environment. 1.
