5 Multiple choice questions
- percentage of each of the five kinds of white blood cells in the WBC.
- 58% of the plasma proteins. Important in regulation of water movement between tissues and blood. Maintains water balance.
- 4% Responsible for formation of blood clots. (also platelets)
- type AB+
- rhesus monkeys first studied, people are positive with the Rh antigen, negative without it. People that are positive have D antigens on their red blood cells. Antibodies against the Rh-antigen do not develop unless Rh-negative person is exposed to Rh-positive blood.
5 True/False questions
Erythropoiesis → Production of red blood cells. Stem cells form proerythroblasts which become early (basophilic erythroblasts), then intermediate (polychromatics), then late erythroblasts, extrusion of nucleus becomes reticulocytes, normally 1-3%
Erythrocytes → Red Blood Cells. Biconcave, anucleate. Made up of Hemoglobin, lipids, ATP, and carbonic anhydrase. Transport oxygen from lungs to tissues and carbon dioxide from tissues to lungs
Monoblasts → Develop into monocytes
Neutrophils → Reduce inflammation, most likely to respond to a PARASITIC infection, increased due to ALLERGIES or inflammation
Platelets → thrombocytes, minute fragments of cells consisting of a small amount of cytoplasm surrounded by plasma membrane. Derived from megakaryocytes. Form platelet plugs, promote formation and contraction of clots. Have proteins and glycoproteins allowing them to attach to other molecules. Contain actin and myosin
