To begin with, cells are the basic unit of life. There are millions of these cells inside the human body, and each has a different type of responsibility, or function. There are an infinite amount of cell types, and a few examples of these types are: 1) muscle cells, 2) nerve
That structure is called a double helix. DNA is located in the nucleus of a cell. The nucleus is generally in the center of a cell. A typical cell nucleus is so small that ten thousand could fit on the tip of a needle. One strand of DNA is around 6 feet long.
Chemical level – this is the simplest level where it involves the building blocks of matter called atoms. Atoms link together in different patterns to build molecules that perform important functions of life. Molecules are combined to build cellular organelles which are called the inner organ of a cell. 2. Cellular level – which is the smallest unit of living matter (combined of cells).
The adult human skeletal system consists of 206 bones, as well as a network of tendons, ligaments and cartilage that connects them. The skeletal system performs vital functions; support, movement, protection, blood cell production, calcium storage and endocrine regulation that enable us to survive. Below are more details on the exact role the skeletal system has on; protection, shape, support, movement and blood production:
Bonnie Bassler, a molecular biologist talks about her discoveries about the possibilities of communication between bacteria, and demonstrates the depths of bacterial quorum sensing, the method in which bacteria “talk” to each other. Bassler states “you think of yourselves as human beings, but I think of you as 99 percent bacterial” (Bassler, 2009). She then talks about how human bodies are made up of cells but in reality, the body is made up of fewer cells and mostly bacteria. Bassler thinks of humans at 90-99% bacteria for two reasons. First, humans have about 1 trillion human cells in them at all time, while at the same time we have 10 trillion bacterial cells in us as well, meaning we are 10 times more bacterial than human relative to the cells we exhibit.
DISCUSSION: The most commonly used cells in regenerative therapy via stem cells are the mesenchymal stem cells, these cells are non hematopoietic, multipotent cells in nature that possess the ability to proliferate rapidly and can be differentiated into a range of types of cells that comprise various tissues. These cells were first discovered 48 years ago, by Dr Friedenstein and his team; they identified and demonstrated specific properties in these cells such as: their morphology is like fibroblastic cell, they posses the ability to grow on tissue-culture surfaces, and are Osteogenic dominance in nature. These cells are multipotent in nature and can be differentiated to neuroblasts, osteoblasts, cartilage, and muscle, endothelial and adipose cells. The availability and the source of Mesenchymal stem cells are commonly found in dental pulp tissue, periodontal
In the migratory phase, the new and live cells called epithelial move towards skin injury to replace dead cells. The proliferation stage consists of the complete coverage of wound by epithelium. At this stage, new stomas usually known as granulating tissues are formed after about 4 days. Microphages, fibroblasts, and blood vessels move toward the wound environment and form a single unit. The completion of this stage
Human body consists of several types of body systems that perform in collaboration with one another in sustaining a person’s health and life. Body system is defined as a complete framework that forms by multiple organs which work together in maintaining body function (Chiras, 2013). The main system in our body is categorized into three important systems namely respiratory system, cardiovascular system and urinary system (refer to Figure 1 in Appendix 1). One of the main body systems is the respiratory system. Respiratory system consists of two tracts which are the upper respiratory tract comprising only the conducting portion which transports air to and from lungs and the lower respiratory tract that includes both the conducting portion
Stem cells are cells that are unspecialized cells and they divide into specialized cells. The there are many types of stem cells, the three main types are: Embryonic stem cells, non-embryonic stem cells or adult stem cells, and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Through years of research scientists
DIY - What Is Life? How can you determine whether something is alive, dead, or non-living? Whenever we speak of life, we must think in terms of cells. Even though we cannot see cells without a microscope, they are the basic unit of life and they exhibit all of the characteristics of living organisms. They can exist individually, as do bacteria, or they may work together, taking on specialized tasks to create a more complex organism.
If signs or symptoms suggest that a person might have non-Hodgkin lymphoma, exams and tests will be done to find out for certain if they do and, if so, to determine the exact type of lymphoma. Lymphoma can come in three ways, unifocal, multifocal, or diffuse, and affect isolated lymph nodes or any organ in the body, and demonstrate a range of imaging appearances at almost every site. The unaffected lymph nodes often have an elongated shape and a fatty hilum(1)
The orthopedic pathologies which can be diagnosed with ultrasound are numerous. Ultrasound has a wide variety of uses in orthopedics that extend beyond routine diagnosis of bone irregularities. Ultrasound plays a role in orthopedic trauma, orthopedic surgery, and even bone densitometry. The following three article summaries demonstrate the versatility of ultrasound in its orthopedic
Human Pathology is the study of the origin, nature, and course of diseases. There are around 78 organs in the body that all have their own functions. Organs are collections of millions of cells that are grouped together to perform various tasks in the human body. With that being said there are many conditions, disorders, and diseases that can affect these organs. I researched the following systems: Lymphatic, Endorcine, Digestive, and Respiratory which all contain important organs (Merriam-Webster dictionary).
