  19. Buffering has no affect on enzyme activity
  20. Iodine test
    Is used to detect the presence of starch
  21. Benedict’s test
    Is used to detect the presence of maltose
  22. Sequence of steps in an ELISA
    • Antigen, serum, antibody-linked enzyme, substrate.
    •                 E_______L_______ImmunoSorbent Assay FILL IN THE BLANK: Enzyme Linked

  28. How is the release of thyroxine controlled
    Found in thyroid gland. It is controlled by the pituitary gland which secretes TSH.  This is carried by the blood to the thyroid gland and causes the thyroid to produce more thyroxine.

  31. Function of estrogen and where it’s produced
    • Produced in the ovaries
    • Estrogen enables the endometrium of the uterus to grow and develop so that the uterus may receive fertilized eggs for implantation.
  32. Function of insulin
    It is vital to the regulation of blood glucose levels because it enables the body’s cells to absorb glucose from the bloodstream
  33. Type I
    body does not make insulin.  Autoimmune-mediated destruction of insulin producing beta cells in the pancreas resulting in absolute insulin deficiency.
  34. Type II
    body makes insulin but does not respond to it. it is unable to be absorbed through the cells. Multifactoral syndrome with combined influence of genetic susceptibility and influence of environmental factors, the best known being obesity, age, and physical inactivity, resulting in insulin resistance in cells requiring insulin for glucose absorption. This form of diabetes is strongly inherited
