Estrone is required for proper development of female secondary sexual characteristics. D. Estrone affects only the reproductive organs. Biology What is the function of hemoglobin? A. Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that is responsible for carrying oxygen to the cells of the body. B. Hemoglobin is a lipid in red blood cells that is responsible for carrying oxygen to the cells of the body. C. Hemoglobin is a protein in white blood cells that is responsible for carrying oxygen to the cells of the body. D. Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells that is not responsible for carrying carbon dioxide to the cells of the body. Biology Why is heat an effective means of sterilization? A. Heat is an effective means of sterilization because it destroys the proteins of microbial life forms, including fungi, bacteria, and viruses. B. Heat is an effective means of sterilization because it destroys the proteins of anaerobic microbial life forms, including fungi, bacteria, and viruses. C. Heat is an effective means of sterilization because it destroys the lipids of microbial life forms, including fungi, bacteria, and viruses. D. Both (B) and (C). Chemistry: List the enzymes whose levels are elevated in the blood serum following an MI. A. CPK, LDH, AST, and SGOT B. LDH, AST, and SGOT C. CRE, AST, and ALT D. None of the above Chemistry What is the physiological function of gluconeogenesis? A. Gluconeogenesis is production of glucose from noncarbohydrate molecules in times when blood glucose levels are low. This ensures proper function of brain and red blood cells, which only use glucose as fuel. B. Gluconeogenesis is production of glucose from noncarbohydrate molecules in times when blood glucose levels are high. This ensures proper function of brain and white blood cells, which only use glucose as fuel. C. Gluconeogenesis is production of glucose from carbohydrate molecules in times when blood glucose levels are low. This ensures proper function of brain and red blood cells, which only use glucose as fuel. D. None of the above Chemistry What effect does glycogen metabolism have on glucose levels? A. Glycogen metabolism traps glucose within liver cells and increases storage of glucose in the form of glycogen. These processes decrease blood glucose levels. B. Glycogen metabolism traps glucose within liver cells and increases storage of glucose in the form of glycogen. These processes increase blood glucose levels. C. Glycogen metabolism releases glucose within liver cells and increases storage of glucose in the form of glycogen. These processes decrease blood glucose levels. D. None of the above Chemistry Carbon monoxide binds tightly to the heme groups of hemoglobin and myoglobin. How does this affinity reflect the toxicity of carbon monoxide? A. Since carbon monoxide binds the heme groups of hemoglobin, it is easily removed or replaced by oxygen. As a result, the effects of oxygen enhancement result in what divers call the “bends.” B. Because carbon monoxide binds the heme groups of hemoglobin, it is easily removed or replaced by oxygen. As a result, the effects of oxygen deprivation result in suffocation. C. Because carbon monoxide binds tightly to the heme groups of hemoglobin, it is not easily removed or replaced by oxygen. As a result, the effects of oxygen deprivation result in suffocation. D. None of the above Pathophysiology Which of the following may be a reason to order an ABG on a patient? A. The patient suddenly develops shortness of breath B. An asthmatic is starting to show signs of tiring C. A diabetic has developed Kussmaul’s respirations D. All of the above Pharmacology How do sulfa drugs selectively kill bacteria while causing no harm to humans? A. Folic acid is a vitamin required for the synthesis of a coenzyme needed to make the amino acid methionine and the purine and pyrimidine nitrogenious bases for DNA and RNA and folic acid is produced by humans. B. Sulfa drug binds to the enzyme, no product is formed, folic acid is made and the biosynthesis of methionine and nitrogenous bases increases. C. Humans are not harmed because they do not synthesize their own folic acid. It is obtained in the diet. D. None of the above Pharmacology What occurs when glycogen metabolism is stimulated by insulin? A. Insulin stimulates glycogen synthase, the first enzyme in glycogen synthesis. B. Insulin stimulates glycogen synthase, the first enzyme in glycogen synthesis. It also stimulates removal of glucose from the bloodstream into cells and phosphorylation of glucose by the enzyme glucokinase. C. Insulin stimulates glycogen synthase, the first enzyme in glycogen synthesis. It also stimulates uptake of glucose from the bloodstream into cells and phosphorylation of glucose by the enzyme glucokinase. D. All of the above Pharmacology What is the medical application of cortisone? Cortisone is used to treat: A. Rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, gastrointestinal disorders, and a variety of skin conditions.
