- RBC formation
- Antigens (agglutinogens)
- Blood Types
- Hemoglobin Breakdown
- a platelets & plasma
- b 1. RBC life span - 105 to 120 days
2. Damaged RBCs removed by spleen & liver
3. Broken down into heme & globin
4. Globin - amino acids
5. Heme - (iron mostly)
a. Biliverdin (green) by product, breaks down bilirubin
b. Bilirubin (yellow) by product of iron
Bruise - break down hemoglobin
spleen - remove any damaged RBCs, WBCs & platelets
- c 1. Erythropoiesis - formation of RBC
2. Erythropoietin - make RBC by releasing this hormone, released by another tissue.
stem cell: divides, one stays stem cell, one becomes WBC, RBC or platelets
- d 1. Based on genetics
2. Four types: A, B, AB & O
3. Agglutination: clumping of red blood cells in response to a reaction between an antibody and an antigen
- e 1. Molecule that stimulates cells to produce antibodies
2. on the cell - determine what blood type you are
Note: antigens is what on test, not agglutinogens
5 Multiple choice questions
- 1. Leave circulation (blood) and enter tissues during inflammatory response. (get of stuff after allergic response)
2. Prevalent in allergic reactions.
3. Destroy inflammatory chemicals like histamine.
4. Numerous in lining of respiratory and digestive tracts
5. Account for 2-4% of the WBC.
6. go after parasitic worms
- Type A
Antigen A on RBC
Anti-B antibody in serum
- 1. Smooth endothelium
- 1. too many RBCs
5 True/False questions
Monocytes → 1. Migrate to lymphatic tissues & proliferate.
2. Responsible for antibody production.
3. Immunity - specific
4. Account for 20-25% of the WBC.
5. 2nd most common
T & B lymphocytes
Thrombocytopenia → too many platelets (too much clotting)
Leukocytosis → 1. Arrest of bleeding
2. Events preventing excessive blood loss
a. Vascular spasm: Vasoconstriction of damaged blood vessels.
b. Platelet plug formation
c. Coagulation or blood clotting
Coagulation (Clotting) → 1. Goal: (1) stop bleeding (2) prevent blood loss
2. Requires platelets and plasma proteins
3. Require calcium ions as cofactors
Plasma: Proteins → Proteins:
1. Albumins: viscosity, osmotic pressure, buffer, transports fatty acids, free bilirubin, thyroid hormones
2. Globulins: transports lipids, carbohydrates, hormones, ions, antibodies, and complement
3. Fibrinogen: blood clotting
4. Most plasma proteins synthesized by liver
5. Gamma globulins synthesized by plasma cells (B cells)
