Anatomy 1

What is function of Rafts from membrane molecules? Organize components of plasma membrane. Play important role in the pinching of a parent cell into two daughter cells. Sometimes allow the cell to form depressions that form a means of carrying substances into the cell.
Main cell structure include all of the following except: Interstitial Fluid
The structure in cells that is associated with enzymatic breakdown of foreign material is: Lyosome
List the cell fibers from largest to smallest. Microfilaments, intermediate filaments, microtubules.
Organelles that allow for recycling of amino acids in the cell. Proteasomes
Membranous structure containing substances that protect the cell from harm. Lysosomes and peroxisomes
Three types of cell connections Desmosome-interlock Gap Junctions-adhere to each other Tight Junctions-joined by collars of tightly fused material.
Cytoskeleton Cells internal framework. Provides support for cell shape, can move the cell and detects changes inside and outside the cell.
Microfilaments Smallest cell fibers, serve as cellular muscles. Made of thin twisted strands of protein molecules . Can slide past each other and cause shortening of the cell.
Intermediate Filaments Twisted protein strands slightly thicker than microfilaments. Form much of the supporting framework in many cells.
Microtubules Tiny hallow tubes that are the thickest of the cell fibers. Made of protein arranged in a spiral shape. Function is to move things into and out of a cell.
Physiology 1
Compounds Cab be broken down or decomposed into the elements that are contained within . Example, H2O can be broken down into hydrogen and oxygen.
Elements Are pure, cannot be broken down or decomposed into two or more different substances. Example Carbon
Hypogastric Below the stomach. Contains loops of sm intestine, urinary bladder, part of lg intestine and appendix.
Iliac Ileum, lowest part of sm intestine.
Epigastric upon the stomach.
Abdominopelvic region Low region, Right iliac/inguinal, Hypogastric, Pubic region, Left Iliac inguinal region
Hypochondriac Under cartilage
Middle Region Right Lumbar or Flank Umbilical region Left lumbar or flank region.
Abdominopelvic Region, Upper Right hypochondriac region, epigastric region. Left hypochondriac region.
Cortical Outer region of an organ
Medullary Inner region or core of an organ.
Ipsilateral Same side
Contralateral Opposite side
Four tissue types Epithelial, Connective, Muscle, Nervous
Golgi Apparatus Sacs that provide a packaging service, stores material for future use.
Endoplasmic Reticulum( ER) Network of channels within cells that act as highways for movement of chemicals.
