Anatomy and Physiology with Integrated Study Guide by Stanley Gunstream

By Stanley Gunstream

Designed for an introductory, one-semester path, the scope, association, writing type, intensity of presentation, and pedagogical facets of this article were adapted to satisfy the wishes of scholars getting ready for a occupation in allied future health. this article doesn't think any earlier technology wisdom at the a part of the scholar and successfully offers scholars with the basics of anatomy and body structure.

It's the one one-semester textual content to be had with a integrated research guide/workbook.

A hallmark characteristic of this article is the author’s presentation of A&P ideas which are exact, yet awarded at a degree that's acceptable for virtually all students. the hot writer workforce highlights the relationships among constitution and serve as of physique elements and the mechanisms of homeostasis. additionally, interrelationships of the organ structures are famous the place applicable and helpful. with out the over the top aspect of a few of the longer A & P texts, scholars can larger understand key serious strategies in every one vital region of analysis.

Plant Adaptation to Environmental Change: Significance of Amino Acids and their Derivatives

Crops consistently deal with negative environment stipulations, which regularly hinder them achieving their complete genetic power when it comes to progress, improvement and productiveness. This e-book covers crops' responses to those environmental alterations, specifically, the modulation of amino acids, peptides and amines to strive against either biotic and abiotic rigidity elements.

Example text

4 that, after transferring an electron from sodium to chlorine, sodium now has 11 protons (+) and 10 electrons (−), while chlorine has 17 protons (+) and 18 electrons (−). Thus, the transfer of an electron from sodium to chlorine causes the sodium atom to have a net electrical charge of +1 and the chlorine atom to have a net electrical charge of −1. Atoms with a net electrical charge, either positive or negative, are called ions. Thus, the transfer of an electron from sodium to chlorine has (1) resulted in the valence shell of each atom being filled with electrons and (2) produced a sodium ion (Na+) and a chloride ion (Cl-).

Both are formed of many glucose units. Glycogen is the storage form of carbohydrates in animals, including humans. Some of the excess glucose in blood is converted into glycogen and stored primarily in the liver, but small amounts are stored in muscle cells. Glycogen serves as a reserve energy supply that can be quickly converted into glucose. For example, whenever the level of blood glucose declines, the liver converts glycogen into glucose via catabolic (hydrolysis) reactions to increase the blood glucose level.

In this way, it is possible to obtain an image of various organs or parts of organs where the radioisotopes accumulate. Positron emission tomography (PET) uses certain radioisotopes that emit positrons (positively charged electrons), and it enables precise imaging similar to computerized tomography (CT) scans. PET can be used to measure processes, such as blood flow, rate of metabolism of selected substances, and effects of drugs on body functions. It is a promising technique for both the diagnosis of disease and the study of normal physiological processes.
