Pheromone Degradation

The biochemical process of pheromone component degradation from body and antenna is cardinal for olfaction by permeating sensitivity to incoming pheromones. Substrate-specific enzymes synthesized by moths are responsible for degradation of pheromone components in the body. Studies conducted using pheromone analogues and 3H-labeled pheromones coupled with the application of radioactive...

What Happens at the Synapse

Neurons transmit signals to neurons and to other cells (muscles or glands) at the synapse (CNS Clinic, 2007). The outer membranes of the transmitting neuron and the receiving cell are separated by a fluid-filled synaptic gap, typically 20 nm wide. So in order for the transmitting neuron to affect the...

Blood Circulation Analysis

Deoxygenated blood begins the cycle through the entire human body in the superior vena cava. From there it enters the right atrium of the heart then through the right atrioventricular valve into the right ventricle. The contraction of the right ventricle forces the blood through the pulmonary semilunar valve leading...

The Use of Human Tissue in Medical Research

The cancerous cells divide rapidly and uncontrollably leading to emergence of tumor. These cells’ growth cannot be controlled by the body system as opposed to the healthy cells. On the other hand, the growth of body cells is density dependent and cannot surpass the required number. Cancerous cells rapidly reproduce...
