Glycogen is then stored in the liver, lowering the blood glucose levels. This results in the blood glucose levels to peak (2) and then fall (3) as the insulin feedback mechanisms work to restore the blood glucose levels to the fasting blood glucose level
Describe in detail how these hormones regulate blood glucose levels. After eating a meal, the level of glucose in the body increases and it promotes to secrete insulin from the beta cells of the pancreas. Then insulin triggers the uptake of glucose from the blood to the cells by decreasing the level of blood glucose. Or insulin can stimulate the formation of glycogen from the glucose which also reduces the concentration of glucose in the blood (Reece et al., 910). If the concentration of glucose in the blood is low / below the normal range, it leads to the secretion of glycogen from the alpha cells.
1 “substrate” and another “ enzyme.” Instead of using the distilled water, this time you are going to use different pH buffer in the enzyme test tube. In the substrate tube, add 7 mL of distilled water, 0.3 mL of hydrogen peroxide, and 0.2 mL of guaiacol for a total volume of 7.5 mL. For the enzyme tube, instead of distilled water add the pH solution (3) and 1.5 mL of peroxidase which equals a total volume of 7.5 mL. Use the dH2O syringe for our pH solution. To clean the syringe, flush it by drawing 6 mL of distilled water.
Next, a basic stock solution was used to prepare various concentrations ranging from 1.0 x 10-8M to 1.0 x 10-1M by serial dilution. The tissue was washed by overflow with reservoir’s solution for 5 seconds to obtain baseline before adding 0.1ml, 0.3ml and 0.5ml for each concentration respectively into the tissue bath.The tissue’s peak response for each final bath concentration(FBC) was measured and recorded. Rmax and EC50 of histamine were recorded. Later, 5ml of 1 x 10-6 M of mepyramine was added into the reservoir containing 1000ml of Krebs-Henssleit solution to produce a FBC of 5.0 x 10-9M. It was equilibrated with tissue for 10 minutes by flushing into the organ bath.
You must first check if all the equipment and materials are present and ready to use. Including a lab coat and safety goggles, which you must wear before beginning with the experiment. b. You may use this table to record your data, or create another table similar to this i. Test tube Time taken to change color/sec Color change 1 2 3 4 5 c. Separate the test tubes into 2 groups (there should be 2 groups of 5 now) d. Label 5 test tubes A1-A5 (A for amylase solution) e. Label the other 5 test tubes S1-S5 (S for starch solution) f. Place all the test tubes in a test tube rack g. Label one beaker “cold water” and fill it with cold water from the water dispenser h. Label another beaker “normal water” and fill it with the normal water from the dispenser i. Label another beaker “ warm water and fill it with hot water from the water dispenser j. Label another beaker “ very warm water and fill it with hot water from the water dispenser, then place it on magnetic stirrer (hot plate stirrer) while measuring its temperature k. Label another beaker “ hot water and fill it with hot water from the water dispenser, then place it on magnetic stirrer (hot plate stirrer) while measuring its
Another 5-mL test tube, labelled as B, was filled with 1 mL of distilled water. A drop of methyl red was added. Also, a 0.01M hydrochloric acid (HCl) was added in a dropwise manner from a syringe until the color of the solution matches that of the first test tube setup. The volume of the HCl used was recorded for the determination of the ionization constant of
What stimulates the production of this hormone? What effect does it have on the kidneys? (3 marks) The atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) hormone is produced in specialized myocardial cells primarily n the atria of the heart (Silverthorn et al., 2013). Natriuretic peptides are released by the heart when increased blood volume causes increased atrial stretch (Silverthorn et al., 2013). At the systemic level, ANP enhances sodium and water excretion to decrease blood volume.
Extra care was taken to not touch the plate with bare skin. Five spots were labeled on the line and each amino acid standard was spotted on the plate using a capillary tube. The standards included leucine, alanine, phenylalanine, and lysine. The final spot was an unknown mixture of three amino acids. After allowing the spots to dry, the plate was placed in the developing jar and allowed to develop.
For Mr. Tripson’s urine test, the physician wants to examine his dissolved particle-to-water levels, or osmolarity. Polyuria is a condition in which you lose a lot of water in your urine; the osmolarity test will determine how much water and what concentration of particles are in it. The two particles the physician is specifically interested in observing are glucose and ketones, both of which are indicators of diabetes mellitus. A presence of ketones in your urine could mean your body is burning fat instead of glucose for energy, which is common in diabetic patients, and could potentially lead to diabetic ketoacidosis, a complication of diabetes that can be fatal. In this case, the urine result
The formation of a dye-iodine complex will occur in the cytoplasm. Then, it was flooded with ethanol and washed immediately. It is where the process of decolorization occurs. It should not be prolonged as it can over decolorized and immediate washing would sometimes cause under decolorized smear and. Finally safranins were flooded on slide for 30 seconds and rinse it with tap water and the slide must be dried using a blotting paper before viewing and examine in the
