alterations in cell

is alterations in cell

exhibit manifest or deliberately display
extracellular fluid one of the major fluid compartment. Usually denotes all body fluid outside the cells
metabolism is the set of life-sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of organisms. the three main purposes of metabolism are the conversion of food/fuel to energy to run cellular processes
intracellular fluid the remainder and one of the major fluid compartment.
lethal are alleles that cause the death of the organism that carry them. They are usually a result of mutations in genes that are essential to growth or development
stimulus a thing or event that evokes a specific functional reaction in an organ or tissue:
accumulate gradually gather or acquire (resulting a whole)
delineated describe or portray (something) precisely
noxious harmful poisonous or very unpleasant
atmospheric pressure gradients the pressure gradient (typically of air, more generally of any fluid) is a physical quantity that describes which direction and at what rate the pressure changes the most rapidly around a particular location
microcirculation circulation of the blood in the smallest blood vessels, present in the vasculature embedded within organ tissues. This contrasts with macrocirculation, which is the circulation of blood to and from the organs.
hypoxia the causes decreased perfusion of blood to the tissues, inadequate oxygen in blood. effect is disturbance of cellular metabolism.
toxic metabolite foreign substance enter the body, blood stream, and the liver. However, when some substances are metabolized, the resulting metabolites are toxic to the body and can cause the fatal results.
secrete of a cell, gland, or organ. Produce or discharge a substance
perfusion in physiologic perfusion is the process of body delivering blood to the capillary bed in biologic tissue.The word is derived from the French verb "perfuser" meaning to "pour over or through."
somatic death is the complete and irreversible stoppage in circulation, respiration, and brain functions
metabolite acidosis is a condition that occurs when the body produces excessive quantities of acid or when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body
excessive more than is necessary, normal, or desirable; immoderate
immoderate not sensible or restrained
histamine is involved in the inflammatory response and has a central role as a mediator of itching. As part of an immune response to foreign pathogens, histamine is produced by basophils and by mast cells found in nearby connective tissues.
radical (especially of change or action) relating to or affecting the fundamental nature of something; far-reaching or thorough
excretion Excretion is the process by which waste products of metabolism and other non-useful materials are eliminated from an organism
proximal situated nearer to the center of the body or the point of attachment
susceptible likely or liable to be influenced or harmed by a particular thing
deterioration the process of becoming progressively worse
speculated form a theory or conjecture about a subject without firm evidence
convoluted extremely complex and difficult to follow. And intricately folded, twisted, or coiled
exogenous caused by an agent or organism outside the body. common to get by inhalation of organic carbon particles that are generated by burning fossil fuels
atrophied waste away, typically due to the degeneration of cells, or become vestigial during evolution
interstitial fatty infliltration a condition that occurs with obesity. Fat cells accumulate between the parenchymal cells of an organ, probably as a result of the transformation of interstitial consecutive tissue cells into fat cells.
lipid peroxidation produce this which are unstable and break down to produce aldehydes and organic free radicals. This becomes a self-propagating interaction that can cause widespread membrane damage.
Reperfusion injury has been increasingly noted and studied in ischemic tissue that has been reperfused with activated oxygen.
antioxidants an antioxidant is a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules. Antioxidants such as thiols or ascorbic acid terminate these chain reactions
glycogenoses disorder; results from specific enzyme deficiencies.
endogenous (produced whithin the body) probably like exogenous
anthracosis these particles accumulate in the macrophages and lymph nodes of the lung tissue, producing blackened appearance of the lungs
lipofuscin pigmentation of the skin is common in the aging person. It is made up of golden brown granules
melanin is a black-brown pigment that is formed by the melanocytes of the skin. Protect against sun rays. The amount of melanin imparts the degree of color to the skin
