Tough but flexible tissue that covers the ends of bones at joints. Also provides structure for some parts of the body including ears, windpipe, and nose.
Fibrous tissue that connects bones to bones - they form a joint. Tearing a ligament causes instability in the joint.
Nerve sends an impulse, causes the release of calcium, this exposes myosin binding sites (This requires ATP, allows myosin to bind actin). Muscles always work in pairs
Charged with recovering plasma from tissues, transporting fatty acids and white blood cells, and activating immune responses.
Includes skin and all related tissues, such as hair and nails. Main functions of skin: sensation, protection, thermoregulation, secretion.
Layer below the epidermis. Contains hair follicles, oil and sweat glands, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels.
Regulates mood, growth, development, tissue function, metabolism, and sexual function. Sometimes works with the nervous system for short-term effects but mostly controls long-term processes. Made up of glands.
Class of enzymes that add oxygen to non-polar compounds to make them more soluble so they can enter and exit the cell (part of the Endocrine system). About 75% of the metabolism of compounds is performed by P450s.
Gas that was denser than air in the Bhopal Disaster, stayed low to the ground increasing exposure
Oxygen-poor blood floods into the right atrium from the body, then flows into the right ventricle, then the right ventricle pumps the blood to the lungs, where the blood releases waste gases and picks up oxygen. Newly oxygen-rich blood then enters the left atrium, then flows into the left ventricle and goes to all parts of the body. Lymph system is really a part of the circulatory system. Circulatory system is important for maintaining homeostasis.
Produces skeletal movement, maintains posture, supports soft tissues, guard entrances and exits to the body cavity, maintains body temperature, stores protein.
Provides a framework for the body, protects organs, acts as a site for muscle attachment, produces blood cells; stores phosphorous, calcium, some fat.
The neuronal system uses electrical impulses and chemical signals to transmit information between different areas of the brain and between the brain and the rest of the nervous system.
Have long axons and carry information from the central nervous system to the muscles and glands for the body
Affects the integumentary system. ABCDE system is used to recognize symptoms of melanoma. Can treat it with surgery; chemotherapy; immunotherapy; radiation therapy. 1/55 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
Caused by growth hormone deficiency. Growth hormones come from the pituitary gland. Symptoms - disadvantaged height, often not on the same rate of growth as other children/people in general. Treatment involves both injections with growth hormones as well as psychological treatment for self-esteem issues.
Evolutionary branching and diversification. Ecological differentation and reproductive isolation. Isolation of members of a species in different environments may result in formation of several subspecies.
similar traits in different organisms that stem from a common ancestor. Shows divergent evolution
Remnants of structures that have great importance in an ancestral species, but no current use
The resistance that an organism builds up to an antibiotic the more it is exposed to it.
