In most tissues innervated by the autonomic nervous system, the sympathetic & parasympathetic braches have opposing effects.
Major inhibitors of stomach motility:
NaCl and water are absorbed
Fecal matter is stored 18-24 hours
Amino acids, fatty acids, and sugars are aborbed.
Circulate bound to a carrier protein
All change the rate of transciption of specific messenger RNAs.
Plasma glucose is derived from glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis.
Lipolysis in adipose tissue is stimulated.
Equal to the alveolar pressure (Palv) minus the intrapleural (Pip) pressure.
When transpulmonary pressure exceeds atomospheric pressure air leaves the lungs.
During temporal summation the Ca2+ concentration inside muscle cells is much higher than during quantal summation.
Ca2+ binds to a protein assoiated with the thin filaments.
Proteins udergo shape changes to uncover myosin binding sites.
Parasympathetic nervous system would stop working.
Sympathetic nerovus system would stop working.
They empty into an arteriole rather than into a venule.
Their structure is specialized to maximized filtration along their whole length.
Low level of ADH will produce a large volume of dilute urine.
High concentrations of ADH increase blood pressure by constricting blood vessels.
Theca cells (outer layer)
Stimulates growth of uterine smooth muscle
Stimulates production of thin, watery mucus to aid in sperm transport.
Simulates 2ndary sex characteristics. Aids bone growth and affects behavior.
Words From Our Students
"StudyBlue is great for studying. I love the study guides, flashcards, and quizzes. So extremely helpful for all of my classes!"
Alice, Arizona State University
"I'm a student using StudyBlue, and I can 100% say that it helps me so much. Study materials for almost every subject in school are available in StudyBlue. It is so helpful for my education!"
Tim, University of Florida
"StudyBlue provides way more features than other studying apps, and thus allows me to learn very quickly! I actually feel much more comfortable taking my exams after I study with this app. It's amazing!"
Jennifer, Rutgers University
"I love flashcards but carrying around physical flashcards is cumbersome and simply outdated. StudyBlue is exactly what I was looking for!"
