  37. What is the Fluid mosaic model?
    the proteins on the membrane are moving around
  38. Phospholipid bilayer
    a double layer of phospholipid molecules whose " hydrophilic" heads are facing outwards, and it's "hydrophobic" tails face inwards. 
  39. phospholipid
    • head is a glycerol, hydrophilic,
    • tails are fatty acids, hydrophobic
  40. what does selectively permeable mean?
    that some things are allowed to croos the membrane, while others cannot
  41. What is diffusion?
    •  It's random
    •  It's Passive (no energy requited)
    •  Moves from Hi to Low concentration
    •  Eventually reaches equilibrium
    •  With or W/o a membrane
  42. Facilitated Diffusion?
    •  Movement through the membrane via protein passages
    •  passive
    •  moves from Hi to Low
    •  reaches equilibrium
    •  With a membrane
  43. What is Osmosis?
    • movement of water down its concentration gradient across a membrane. 
    •  high to low
    •  with a membrane
    •  passive
    •  with or w/o protein passages
    •  reaches equilibrium
  44. Isotonic solution?
    solutes are the smae inside as they are outside the cell. 

  45. Hypertonic solution?
  46. concentration of solutes is greater outside V. inside, water leaves the cell and the cell shrinks.
    •  W/ Cell wall: called plasmolysis
    •  W/O cell wall: called crenation
    • "cells placed in hypertonic solution lose water"
  47. Hypotonic Solution?
    • If solutes are greater inside V. Outside
    • H20 enters the cell, could cause it to burst (if no cell wall)
    • Has a cell membrance could increase turger pressure
  48. ACtive transport?
    • Movement of molecules against their concentration gradient (low to Hi)
    • With a membrane
    • Requires energy
    • use of proteins called gated channels or ports
  49. Bulk transport?
    • Delivery of fluid or larger particles inside the cell
    • Requires energy and membrane
    • 2 different types
    • Exocytosis, endocytosis
  50. Endocytosis
    • move stuff into the cell
    • 3 different types
    • a. Phagocytosis: large particles
    • b. Pinocytosis: liquids
    • c. Receptor mediated endocytosis: specific things brought in via receptors in membrane
  51. Exocytosis
    Moves stuff out of cell
  52. Metabolic Rate
    • Measures a persons energy use
    • different times or day require different amounts of energy
    • for example: sleeping requires less than exercising
  53. Basal metabolic rate

    Increase calories and still exercise
  57. How much body fat?
    • Women: 12-32% (22% avg)
    • Men: 3-29% (24% avg)
  58. BMI
    • Body mass index
    • calculating using height and weight
    • determines body fat and its associated health risks
    • Healthy range (20-25)
    • If not in range might have halth problems.
  59. Problems with BMI
    • Desnt account for age, gender and body frame
    • 1/4 misclassified
    • can't tell difference between body fat and lean muscle mass
  60. Obesity
    • BMI > 30
    • Health risks: diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, joint problems and cancers.
  61. Diabetes:
    • Disorder of carbohydrate metabolism
    • either not enough insulin, or body not responding to it properly
    • level of glucose in blood rises
  62. Insulin
    Secreted by pancreas; to trigger cells to use glucose for energy
  63. Type II diabetes
    • Body doesn't produce enough insulin or body resistant to insulin
    • adult onset diabetes (no longer true)
    • Obesity--> lack exercise
    • often fixed w/ diet and exercise
    • sometimes injections
  64. Diabetes statistics
    • 25.8M people in US w/ Diabetes (8.3%)
    • 80% ppl with Type II are obese
    • #7 leading cause of death
    • accounts for 11% of health care costs
    • $174 billion total cost
  65. Hypertension
    • Fat cells require O2 + other nutrients
    • as fat cells increase, so does the need for O2
    • Increased blood necessary to be pumped to fat cells
    • heart must work harder to keep blood volume high
    • puts more pressure on the blood pressure walls
    • Obesity leads to high HR, which increases BP
    • obesity puts stress on heart to work too hard, 6X more likely to have a MI
  66. Heart attack
    • high BP damages lining of vessels
    • Cholesterol gets deposited
    • a. leads to artheriosclerosis
    • b. artery walls get narrow
    • Reduced blood flow leads to chest pain and a possible heart attack
    • Heart is a muscle, no oxyen and it can die
  67. Stroke
    • fat deposits cause artery walls in brain to narrow
    • Reduced blood flow causes a stroke
    • brain w/o O2 can die
  68. CVD statistics
    • #1 killer in US
    • 25% ppl in Us die from CVD each year
    • 36% ppl have CVD
    • overweight individuals at higher risk, 1.5-2.4% more likely, due to lack of exercise
