Course description
The general goal of the anatomy and physiology sequence (Bio 201-202) is to provide pre-health professionals with the
necessary foundation in human anatomy and physiology to succeed in subsequent health science courses. I am interested
in students learning to apply the principals they learn, rather than in strictly memorizing information.
Exams test your understanding of the material more than your memory recall.

                                                                                                              Cochise College

Course requirements
   1. Online participation and completion of electronic assignments. Since you will only attend BIO 201 once per
       week, the rest of your learning time will be when it’s most convenient for you.
            You will need to have access to a computer and the internet and are expected to login within 48 hours after
            your class meets face-to-face each week to check announcements and assignments.
                     You must also complete all online assignments and listen to all ilinc lectures each week (no waiting
             until end of semester—each assignment/lecture has an absolute, posted due date).
                     Remember, the time you spend doing this is the time you would have otherwise spent in lecture.
             The only difference is, you get to decide when you want to do online assignments and you can be wearing
             your pajamas while you do them! 

    2. Distribution of points. Your final grade will be based on the following weighting of scores you earn:
    Lectures exams:              45%
    Assignments  a               15%
    Lab practicals               35%
    Participationb                5%
    Total                        100%
        Assignments include your portfolios, online assignments and online weekly quizzes.
        Participation includes in-class activities, clicker quizzes in-class, etc.

    3.   Five lecture examinations, 100 points each (final exam 150 pts). The exam includes a multiple-choice section with
         somewhere between 25 and 35 multiple choice questions, as well as a short answer section (consisting of short
         essay, fill-in-the-blank, labeling illustrations, etc.). You must answer all essay questions with complete sentences
         or you will lose points. Exam 5 (final exam) is cumulative.
               I usually include about 10 points worth of bonus, short answer questions. Correct bonus answers will be
               added to your score, with the exception that you cannot earn more than 100 points on exams.
               You are allowed only ONE make-up lecture exam only if you have a legitimate, verifiable excuse. You
               must contact Kerry within 24 hours to see if you can schedule a makeup exam. If you fail to contact Kerry
               with 24 hours of the scheduled exam time, you will NOT be allowed to make up the exam.

    4.   Lecture exam test corrections. You may correct lecture exams one through four to add up to 10% of the total
         value of the exam to your original score.
               Students have until the next class after receiving their graded exam to make corrections.
               Short answer portion: A student may earn a maximum of 5 pts. if s/he correctly re-answer all missed parts
               of his/her short answer portion. If a student correctly re-answers 80% of the questions she missed, I will
               add 0.80 X 5 pts = 4 points to her grade. If another student only correctly re-answers 30% of the questions he
               missed, I will add 1.5 points (5 pts X 0.30 = 1.5) to his grade. A student may not improve his/her grade in
               excess of 100%.
               Multiple choice portion: A student may earn a maximum of 5 pts. if s/he correctly re-answer all parts of
               his/her multiple choice portion. For example, if you correctly answer 95% of the multiple choice questions
               on the take-home portion, I will multiple 5 by 0.95 to determine that you will have 4.75 added to your exam
               See the “Correcting Tests” handout in this lecture packet (p. 9) for detailed instructions.

    5.   Six mini lab practicals. Completely closed-book, though you will be allowed to check your spelling at the end of
         the bone and muscle practicals. One-half point off for each misspelling. Setting up lab practicals takes hours and
         required reserving models, slides, etc. This prevents students in other classes from accessing these items.
         Therefore, there are absolutely NO MAKE-UPS for lab practicals. Please don’t miss them!
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                                                        Kerry Henrickson
                                                                                                               Cochise College

    6.   Portfolio. Students will keep a three-prong, pocket portfolio of their BIO 201 assignments and labs. All papers
         must be inserted into the prongs (Do NOT put assignments in the pockets. The pockets are reserved for note
         cards only.). The portfolio will be due on exam days and each will usually be worth between 20 and 35 points. I
         will grade you on the quality of your work (e.g. thoroughness of responses, proper grammar, correct spelling,
         complete sentences, etc.).

    7.   Initials. Some portfolio items must be initialed for full credit. You must be present in class (or give your
         completed assignment to a classmate to be initialed) on the day it is due. You cannot obtain initials after the due
         date. Also, the assignment must be COMPLETELY finished with no missing answers. The point of initials is to
         ensure you completely finished the assignment in a timely fashion.

    8.   Study guides. The study guides at the beginning of each unit (which will be posted on Blackboard throughout
         the semester) cover about 85%-90% of the exam material. The remaining questions come from material in the
         textbook not covered in the study guide.

    9.   Plagiarism. Passing of another’s words (including your textbook author’s) as your own is not only dishonest and
         a violation of copyright law, it is plagiarism! If you wish to use information from your textbook to answer
         questions on assignments or exams, you must PUT THE INFORMATION IN YOUR OWN WORDS. You will
         be deducted points if you plagiarize.

    10. Clickers. We will use clickers in class on a daily basis—even on test days. You will frequently need them to take
        quizzes, as well as respond to in-class questions and surveys I pose for you. You will also take the multiple choice
        portion of your exams using clickers. Therefore, you must remember to bring your clicker to class everyday.

    11. I forgot my clicker! If you forget your clicker on the day of a quiz or test, you will be allowed, on one occasion
        only, to turn in handwritten answers sheets which Kerry will manually correct.
              If you forget your clicker on a day when we are just using them for class participation, you will not be
              allowed to submit handwritten sheets.
              You will receive points for class participation with your clicker throughout the semester and will receive a
              total number of points at semester’s end for participation.

    12. Prep quizzes. At the beginning of each class when there is not a test scheduled, you will be quizzed over the
        material to be covered that day to ensure that you read about it before coming to class. There’s a second benefit to
        frequent quizzing: the more you spread out your learning and review of material, the more likely you are to
        remember the information and retain it over time (Kerry will talk about this in class when she discusses the
        benefits of distributed practice). Consult the lecture schedule (p. 6 of this syllabus) to anticipate what chapters
        you will need to read for the coming class.
                 Prep quizzes will be multiple choice and you will take them with your clicker. Each prep quiz will be
               worth 10 points.
                 Prep quizzes will be given at the beginning of class, therefore you must be to class on time in order to
               take the quiz. There are no makeups for quizzes, even if you’re just late to class.
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                                                        Kerry Henrickson
                                                                                                               Cochise College

                   At the end of the semester, I will drop your lowest prep quiz score.

    13. Contacting Kerry. There’s no excuse for not getting in touch with Kerry when you need to. You can email her
       ( or call her (515-5494) or drop her a note under her office door (room 220), in her faculty
       mailbox, or with the science department secretary (room 212). If you do email Kerry or any other learner
       (something you can do by logging onto Blackboard and going to the “email someone” feature on the left side), you
       should always sign your name, so that everyone knows who sent the email.

Grade policy
       Grades are assigned as follows: 100-90% A; 89-80% B; 79-70% C; 69-60% D; < 59% F.

Accessing grades online
       You can also access your FINAL grades for courses online. To get your grades: 1. Go to 2. Click
       on INFOnline. 3. Click on Student Information System and log into the secure area using your student ID (SSN)
       and pin number (mmddyy). (If your ID is invalid, contact advising at 515-5493 or Records and Registration at 515-
       5415 to reset your pin.) 4. Click on Student Services and Financial Aid; then on Student Records, and finally click
       on Final Grade. Select the proper term from the drop-down window and Display Grades. To print your grades,
       click on Print Screen.

Attendance policies
    1. Regular attendance in lecture and lab is expected. Students who miss three or more lectures, and/or labs may
       be dropped without notice. If you miss a lecture, it is your responsibility to arrange to complete laboratory
       exercises (when possible) and to obtain notes and/or supplemental material by visiting the Blackboard website,
       contacting other students or speaking to Kerry. Remember: you are part of a learning community—contact fellow
       students for help and information. Exchange phone numbers and get to know your classmates!

    2.   Students receiving VA benefits will be held to federal VA attendance requirements.

    3.   Students are allowed only one make-up lecture exam during the semester. If you know in advance you will be
         missing a test you may take it early with no penalty and it will not be considered a make-up exam. If you take an
         exam late for any reason, you must take it within one week of the scheduled time with a 10% penalty. Absolutely
         no make-ups for the lab practicals.

    4.   If you miss a lecture exam you must contact me within 24 hours of the test to request a make-up.

    5.   Portfolios and other assignments. Late work is accepted with a 10 percent penalty per class day it is late. I do not
         accept assignments more than five days late.

   1. I vigorously avoid giving incompletes. Please be present for all lab practicals and lecture exams.

    2.   If you cheat on an exam or quiz, you get a zero on the quiz/exam and you will be sent to the dean of students for
         a meeting before being allowed back into class.

    3.   No extra credit. I‘d rather have you use the time learning the material, not learning something else.

    4.   See me for extra help outside class. Please contact me; I am here to help you. If you are having problems inside or
         outside class let me know and I will try to help wherever possible.

    5.   Please be quiet and considerate of others during lecture. Making comments to others and asking them questions
         is distracting, as are cell phones. Turn off your cell phone before entering class! If your phone accidentally rings
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                                                                      Kerry Henrickson
                                                                                                                             Cochise College

           during class, turn it off! Do NOT answer the phone, or leave class to answer it. This is extremely disruptive to
           other students. You can check your phone for calls/messages during breaks.
    6.     Please be on time. Students late on test days will not receive additional time to complete their exams.

      If you are a student with a disability and require auxiliary aids, services or other accommodations, please
      contact the college‘s ADA coordinator approximately three weeks in advance of registration to discuss your
      accommodation needs. Call 515-5337 for an appointment, or email the ADA Coordinator at:

                                              Correcting tests
1.   Your corrected test is due the next class after you receive it. No late papers will be accepted. No exceptions.

2.   You must follow all instructions on this page exactly. If you fail to follow instructions you will not receive additional
     points. You will not be allowed a second chance to turn in your corrected test for extra points.

3.   You must fully correct both the short answer and scantron portions to receive any additional points.

4. Refer your syllabus if you can’t remember how I determine how many points to add to your exam.

5.   You can only earn a maximum of 10% of the total value for the short answer part ( = 5 pts) by correcting your short
     answer portion, with the following exceptions.
        a. You can NOT correct bonus questions nor can you receive greater than 100 pts. on your corrected test.
        b. Remember that you also will help raise your grade by retaking the scantron portion.

       a. Re-answer your multiple choice portion.
       b. On the day you turn in your written portion of your test corrections, be ready with your clicker to
       resubmit your multiple choice answers into the computer at the beginning of class
       c. We will calculate what percentage you earn on your multiple choice corrections and multiply that by 5 pts. For
           example, if you correctly answer 85% of the multiple choice questions on your retake, we will add 0.85 X 5 =
           4.25 pts to your test score.

       a. You must TYPE all corrected answers to questions you         Sally Gomez
          missed on a separate sheet of paper.                         Exam 1 corrections

                                               Exam 1 Study Guide
    1.    Don‘t forget to look at the sample questions at the end of the syllabus. They‘ll give you an idea of what caliber of
          questions will be on the test.
    2.    Consider the following organs: heart, stomach, spinal cord. Describe their position in the body using ―planes‖ of
          section, body cavity and position terms such as ―lateral.‖ Be sure you are familiar with the different body cavities.
    3.    What are the different organ systems of the body? What are the basic function(s) of each one?
    4.    The materials of the body are organized into successively more complex structures. In each case, start with a term
          on the left and compose a reasonable hierarchy that ends with the term on the right.
                 o Organelle… organ
                 o Amino acid… mitotic spindle
                 o Adenine (base)… genetic material
    5.    How can a negative feedback system maintain homeostasis? Your answer should discuss the concept of homeostasis
          and what negative feedback means.
    6.    Review on your own (see ―Pre-requisites knowledge in the Bio 201 Blackboard Website for helpful review
          materials, if needed):
               o Define ionic bond, ion, polar molecule, covalent bond. What happens when you put NaCl in water?
                   Relate this to what happens in your body.
               o What are hydrogen bonds and how do they affect the structure of water?
               o What accounts for the shape of a protein and what are the levels of organization for a protein? How does
                   the shape of a protein related to its function and what are some of the functions of proteins?
               o What is pH? Is a low pH acidic or basic? What value reflects a neutral pH? What is the pH of human
               o Distinguish between dehydration synthesis and hydrolysis. Which process would your body use to
                   manufacture glycogen (long, branched chains of glucose), proteins (strings of amino acids) and DNA
                   (strings of nucleotides)? Which process would your body use to digest food or break down glycogen to
                   release sugar into the bloodstream?
               o What is a lipid and how does it differ from other classes of organic molecules? What function(s) do lipids
                   have in the body?
               o What are the defining characteristics of: carbohydrates, nucleic acids, proteins and lipids? What is the
                   generalized formula for each type of organic molecule? You don’t need to draw them, just recognize them if
                   you saw drawings of them on an upcoming exam… hint, hint!
               o Distinguish between hydrophobic and hydrophilic.
               o What is an enzyme? Explain the relationship between enzymes and catalysis. How do enzymes ―help‖
               o What is ATP and why is it so important?
    7.    What happens when a protein is denatured? What conditions can cause denaturation?
    8.    How does the structure/composition of the plasma membrane relate to its functions? Include the lipid and the
          protein components. What types of functions do different proteins perform?
    9.    Describe the fluid mosaic model.
    10.   Define osmosis. What happens to a cell when it is exposed to a hypotonic solution? A hypertonic solution? An
          isotonic solution? Practice drawing pictures to determine outcomes. Your instructor uses pictures to determine direction of
          osmosis, and you should, too. It really does help!
    11.   Distinguish between functional (globular) and structural (fibrous) proteins.
    12.   The Na+/K+ pump is very important for all cells. Explain the job of this protein and why that function is so
    13.   What are the organelles found within a typical cell and what are their functions? How do they all work together
          to allow cells to produce proteins?

    14. Cell A specializes in the synthesis of a protein hormone that exit the cell via exocytosis and Cell B produces lots of
        a steroid (cholesterol-based) hormone. How would you expect the relative levels of the various cellular structures
        (consider free ribosomes, rough ER, smooth ER, etc.) to differ, if at all, between Cell A and B?
    15. What are the fundamental differences between active and passive transport? Why does a cell require both types
        of transport?
    16. Both active and passive transport can be subdivided further. Distinguish between the different pairs of terms
               o Simple diffusion vs. facilitated diffusion
               o Channel or pore vs. carrier or transport protein
               o Primary vs. secondary active transport
               o Simple diffusion vs. osmosis

    Also, quiz yourself using your textbook
     Testing your recall, Ch., 1 (all questions), Ch. 3 (questions 1-10; 13-20).
     Testing your comprehension, Ch. 1 (question 5 only); Ch. 3 (1, 4, 5)
        You can find the answers to these questions in the comprehension tests for each chapter at the class website or at the back of
         the textbook.
        I may include some of these questions on your exam.

                                       Good luck and don’t panic!

Initials due on cards on ______________________________                                                Place cards in portfolio #2.

Size                3” by 5” OR     4” X 6”

  These cards will be your study tools for the histology practical. If you aren‘t able to complete your drawings
        during class, use the websites listed in your lecture notes or at the pictures in your lab manual.

You should still look at all tissues under the microscope since this is how you will identify tissues
                                         on the lab practical.
On the front
        Draw a circle on the card, then, using colored pencils, draw the tissue type inside the circle. Put the appropriate
        information where indicated on the card. You are required to label all useful landmarks (e.g. collagen fiber,
        lacuna, elastin fiber, apical side, basal side, etc.) which are listed on the next page.

On the back
                     Identify the tissue type, its function and at least three (where applicable) places in the body where it is

                               Tissue Type:

     – Function of genes: recipe for creating proteins via RNA intermediate
        • genes direct making of RNA
     – RNA directs the formation of proteins
        • 3 types of RNA: mRNA (messenger), rRNA (ribosomal) and tRNA (transfer)

What are genes for?
• Which genes used in cell determines:
    –   What proteins are made which determines:
         • Cell function

What is the structure of DNA?
•   Nucleotide: building block of DNA

         • Phosphate
    – Four bases found in DNA: adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine (A, C, T, G)
    – Nucloetides form nucleic acids

What is the structure of DNA?
•   DNA is double-stranded helix
•   Phosphate-sugar backbone

Protein Synthesis
A Review
Online lecture

How is protein synthesized?

•   Central Dogma:
•   DNA                  mRNA                  protein
       transcription                 translation
        in nucleus                  in cytoplasm

What is the first step?
• Stage one: Transcription
    –   Helicase unwinds DNA and RNA polymerase reads one gene’s worth
    –   Makes single-stranded RNA
         • Pairs A to U (not T)
    –   Alterations to mRNA
         • 5’ cap; 3’ poly-A tail; introns removed, exons glued together
    –   mRNA leaves nucleus

What is the second step?
• Stage two: Translation
    –   Read (translate) message into sequence of amino acids = proteins
    –   mRNA is translated on the “ribosome”
    –   Ribosome is protein and rRNA

                                                            Cochise College

What specifically happens during translation?
•   mRNA binds to ribosome
•   Translation starts at start codon AUG (= methionine)
•   tRNA molecule with correct aa has matching anticodon
     – Anticodon pairs with codon
•   Peptide bonds formed
•   Stops at stop codon
     – Note: stop codon does not code for an aa
•   Secondary and tertiary protein structure forms

Can you recap that?
• Give it a try with a study partner!
• DNA (sense or coding strand)
• mRNA
• tRNA anticodons
• Amino acids
• Polypeptide

What happens if there’s a copying mistake?
• Mutations!
  – An error in copying DNA from DNA
      • Or in making RNA from DNA (see coming slides)

• Original:

• Point mutation:

• Frame shift mutation:
•     Addition:
•        Deletion of G in BIG:

                                                                                             Cochise College

• Which is more dangerous?
•   mutations movie

Why do some proteins leave the cell and some stay?
• If made on free ribosome: stay in cell
• If made on rough ER
    –   Exported out of cell
    –   Signal sequence (~19 aa’s long) at beginning of mRNA directs ribosome to rough ER
    –   Golgi apparatus packages for final export

Cell Cycle and Mitosis
A Review
Online lecture

Why divide?
•   For growth/replacement
     – Asexual reproduction = mitosis
         • Occurs in somatic cells
         • Produces two identical daughter cells
•   For reproduction
     – Sexual reproduction = meiosis
         • Occurs in gametes
         • Produces four unique daughter cells
             – Each with half of the total genetic complement
             – Fusion of sperm and egg restores full genetic makeup

What is the cell cycle?
•   Life history of a cell
     – Repeating (usually) cycle of 3 major phases:
•   Interphase
     – G1, S, G2
•   Mitosis
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                                        Kerry Henrickson
                                                                                               Cochise College

•   Cytokinesis
•   Not all cells continue through cycle
    – Cycle time varies depending on environment and cell type
    – Skin/blood rapidly, connective tissue on demand; liver yearly, neurons never!

What happens during interphase?
•   G1 or gap 1
     – Cells grow
     – Organelles/cell components increase
•   S
    – DNA synthesis: chromatin duplicated
    – Sister chromatids attached at centromere
•   G2 or gap 2
     – Prepare for mitosis
     – Centrioles replicate

What happens during cell division?
•   Stage one: mitosis
     – Nuclear division
     – Must first duplicate DNA (during what phase __________________?) then divide it up between two cells
        • Separation of sister chromatids
            – Duplicated vs. unduplicated chromosomes
•   Stage two: cytokinesis
     – Equal division of cytoplasmic contents (cytoplasmic division)

What are the four stages of mitosis?
•   Prophase
     – Chromatin condenses to chromosomes
        • Now visible
     – Nuclear envelope disappears
     – Spindle fibers appear, elongate and attach to sister chromatids at kinetochores
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                         Kerry Henrickson

    – Nucleolus disappears
    – Centrosomes begin migrating to opposite poles

What are the four stages of mitosis?
•   Metaphase
    – Spindle fibers lengthen/shorten to pull chromosomes to midline of cell
    – Chromosomes aligned at metaphase plate

What are the four stages of mitosis?
•   Anaphase
     – Separation of sister chromatids
     – Sister chromatids move to opposite poles
        • Once separated they are chromosomes again
     – Spindle fibers shorten to cause the move
        • By removing tubulin

What are the four stages of mitosis?
•   Telophase
     – Reverse of prophase
     – Chromosomes relax to chromatin
     – Nuclear envelope reforms
     – Nucleolus reappears
     – Spindle fibers disappear
     – Centrosomes disappear
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                                        Kerry Henrickson

What is cytokinesis?
•   Immediately after telophase
•   Contractile ring forms at cell midline
•   “pinching” closes off daughter cells from each other

Human Genetics
F2F Lecture

What are alleles?
•   Alternative forms of a gene
     – Eye color, height, freckles, widow’s peak
•   Dominant: when paired with a recessive, dominant allele is the one expressed physically
     – Note: dominant does NOT mean most common!
        • Huntington Disease is a dominant disease, but only 1 in 20,000 get it
     – Use capital letter (recessive: use lower case)
•   Recessive: not expressed when paired w/ dom.
     – Only way to express is if two recessives paired together
•   Multiple alleles: more than two

What is a diploid cell?
•   Contains paired chromosomes
     – One set from Mom (23 chromosomes)
     – One set from Dad (23 chromosomes)
     – All somatic cells are diploid
•   Haploid: set of unpaired chromosomes
    – One set of 23 from mom (or dad)
    – Ovum and sperm are haploid

What’s the difference between genotype and phenotype?
•   Genotype: paired alleles which create genetic makeup of individual
     – Can also refer to combination of all genes for an individual
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                              Kerry Henrickson
                                                                                     Cochise College

    – RR = homozygote dominant
    – Ww = heterozygote (also called a carrier)
    – ss = homozygote recessive
•   Phenotype: the physical appearance of an individual
     – phenotype is dependent on the underlying genotype

How many genes influence a phenotype?
•   Recall: central dogma
•   Exceptions:
     – Polygenic inheritance
        • Eye, skin color
     – Pleiotropy
        • Sickle cell trait
        • Marfan syndrome

What types of dominance are there?
•   Complete
•   Incomplete
     – Heterozygote is intermediate between two homozygous conditions
        • dominant allele can not completely mask recessive allele
        • Straight, wavy or curly hair in humans
        • Familial hypercholesterolemia
        • Sickle cell anemia
•   Codominance
     – Heterozygote displays phenotype of both alleles equally
        • Human blood types

What is a Punnett square?
•   And who the heck was Punnett?!
•   Use to determine what genotype offspring will have based on parental genotype
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                                        Kerry Henrickson
                                                                                               Cochise College

How do I solve a genetics problem?
•     Code the alleles and identify which is dominant/recessive
•     Determine parental (or given) genotypes
•     Determine parental (or given) gametes
•     Draw Punnett square
•     Re-read problem to be sure you are answering the question correctly.

Practice problem
•     In humans, having a widow’s peak (W) is dominant to having a continuous hairline (w)
•     First: class survey for widow’s peaks
•     If a man who is heterozygous for a widow’s peak marries a woman with a continuous hairline, what are
      the chances their child will have a continuous hairline?

Practice problem
•   Show what kind of offspring would result by crossing a parent homozygous for widow’s peak (W) and
    freckles (F) with a parent who is homozygous for continuous hairline (w) and no freckles (f)
•   Remember to follow the steps for solving a genetics problem!

What about sex-linked disorders?
• Genes located on sex chromosomes
• Traced via pedigrees
• Often passed grandfather to grandson

How do I code sex-linked traits?
•   X-linked (most)
     – Y-linked diseases less common
•   To indicate sex linkage we use this system:
                                                   Color blindness
                                                  XB = normal vision
                                                  Xb = color blindness
•   Males with color-blindness are much more common. Why?

Practice problem
• If a man with normal vision marries a woman who is a carrier for color-blindness.
• What are the chances the couple will have a color-blind CHILD?
• What are the chances the couple will have a color-blind DAUGHTER?
• What are the chances the couple will have a daughter who is a carrier (define and discuss)?

How do we test for genetic conditions?
• Adult screening
• Prenatal screening
    –   Amniocentesis: 15-17 weeks
         • Tests can take as long as four weeks to culture
            – 40 tests available

How do we test for genetic conditions?
    –   Chorionic villus sampling:
         • 5 to 12 weeks
         • Immediate testing
         • Greater risk of miscarriage

Stem Cells
Online Lecture

What are stem cells?
• First, compare with somatic cells:
   – ~50 divisions, then senescence or sometimes apoptosis
   – Why?

So what are stem cells?
• Stem cells: endless division
    –   Ability to differentiate
    –   give rise to two different cell types

How do they divide endlessly?
  – Telomeres: TTAGG repeat >1,000 times
     • Recall: somatic cells divide only ~50 times
     • Stem cells have telomerase to repair telomeres

What types of stem cells exist?
    –   Totipotent
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                                      Kerry Henrickson

    –   Pluripotent

    –   Multipotent

What types of stem cells exist?
    –   Unipotent: not a stem cell!
         • Also known as a somatic cell

What is cancer?
• Cancer primer
• Uncontrolled or unusual cell growth
   – Anaplasia, hyperplasia, metastasis
   – Called a tumor or neoplasm
   – Usually involves angiogenesis
• Benign
• Malignant
   – Metastasis

How do genetics cause cancer?
• Loss of regulation of cell cycle:
    –   Telomeres: TTAGG repeat >1,000 times
         • Recall: somatic cells divide only ~50 times
         • Cancer cells have telomerase to repair telomeres

How do genetics cause cancer?
•   Loss of regulation of cell cycle:
     – Cell cycle normally controlled by proteins
        • Regulatory genes produce regulatory proteins
             – These control expression of structural proteins
        • Some regulatory genes influence nearby cells
             – Secrete growth factors or growth inhibitors

What are the two types of regulatory genes?
• Proto-oncogenes: promote cell growth
   – Oncogenes: mutated proto-oncogenes
      • Some make cell growth/division faster
      • Others damage proteins which inhibit growth
   – Cancer: only if several oncogenes (4-6) present!

• Tumor-suppressor genes: repress cell growth
    – Contribute to cancer if they become damaged
    – p53 gene prevents damaged cells from dividing
       • If damaged: cancer of cervix, colon, lung, skin, bladder, breast

How are cancers classified?
• By embryonic tissue origin

• Carcinomas: endo/ectodermic origin
    – Colon, breast, prostate, lung, skin

Initials due on cards ______________________________                                                      Place cards in portfolio #3.

Size:              4” by 6” OR      5” X 8”

 These cards will be your study tools for the bone practical. If you aren‘t able to complete your cards during class, look at
        the websites listed in your lecture notes or at the pictures in your lab manual in order to finish your cards.

     You should physically handle all bones during lab time since
       hands-on testing will be the format of the lab practical.
On the front
        Paste a photocopy of a bone or draw a picture of the bone. If there are labels already on the photocopy, white
        them out and label them with your own letters (A, B, C, etc.). You should label all parts you are expected to
        know. Refer to the “Bones to Know” list in this lecture packet.

                                         B                                                    C

On the back
                     Identify the parts of the bone you labeled. Note: In this example, not all parts of scapula were labeled. You
                     should label all parts you are expected to know.

Did you know?
• A fingernail takes about 6 months to grow from base to tip.
• A human being loses an average of 40 to 100 strands of hair a day.
• Each square inch of human skin consists of 20 feet of blood vessels.
• Every square inch of the human body has an average of 32 million bacteria on it.
• Humans shed about 600,000 particles of skin every hour - about 1.5 pounds a year. By 70 years of age, an
  average person will have lost 105 pounds of skin.

What is the integumentary system?
•   Largest organ in the body
•   Integumentary = “covering”
•   Why is skin called an organ?
•   Components:
     – Skin (cutaneous membrane) and epidermal derivatives (glands, hairs, hair follicles, nails)

What are the regions of the skin?
•   Epidermis and dermis
     – Epidermis: keratinized squamous epithelium
     – Dermis: areolar and dense irregular CT
•   Hypodermis (subcutaneous layer): loose CT (areolar and adipose)
    – Not technically skin

What does the skin do?
•   Communication: sensory receptors
•   Site of waste secretion: sweat
•   Protection: serves as physical barrier against
     – Abrasion, water loss, microorganisms, UV damage
     – Anti-microbial soaps (acid mantle, CDC study)

What does the skin do?
• Body temperature regulation
   – Hot: vasodilation, sweat
   – Cold: vasoconstriction, goose bumps

• Metabolic function:
    – vitamin D synthesis
       • Made from cholesterol
       • Important for Ca2+ absorption in small intestine
    – Prevents folate destruction (reproductive fitness protection)

What does the hypodermis do?
• Allows skin to move freely, shock absorber, insulates against heat loss
• Not present everywhere
    –   E.g. none on shin

What types of cells are in the epidermis?
• Keratinocytes: make keratin
   – Structural protein, type of intermediate filament (tough)
      • Hydrophobic!
   – Desmosomes hold keratinocytes together, attach them to basement membrane
      • Connections required for skin integrity
      • What happens without them?

What types of cells are in the epidermis?
• Melanocytes
  – Spider-like pigment cells, make/secrete melanin
  – Keratinocytes endocytose pigment and concentrate on sunny side
  – Melanin absorbs UV, protects basale layer from damage
      • Sunlight increases melanin production
  – If cancerous: melanoma

What are some common skin-related conditions?
•   Erythema
•   Jaundice
•   Bronzing
•   Pallor
•   Albinism
•   Hematoma
•   Hemangiomas—if you have them, you’ve had them your entire life!

How does the skin repair itself?
•   Two repair processes (see Ch. 5)
     – Fibrosis: production of fibrous CT (scar)
     – Regeneration: replacement of damaged tissue with same tissue type
     – Both repair processes occur in skin
     – Scars = fibroblasts

Skin cancer: carcinomas
•   Basal cell c. vs. squamous cell vs. malignant melanoma

• Osteoblasts: bone-forming cells
   – Synthesize matrix; mineralize bone
   – Non-mitotic
   – Found in endosteum, inner layer periosteum
   – Secrete collagen which becomes encrusted w/ calcium phosphate

What are the four types of bone cells?
• Osteocytes: former osteoblasts
   – Trapped in matrix (lacunae)
   – Canaliculi connect cells
      • Communicate, feed, etc. via gap junctions
      • Send info to osteoblasts about mechanical stress

What are the four types of bone cells?
• Osteoclasts: bone-dissolving cells

Bone development
Online lecture

How do bones form and develop?
•   Ossification: bone formation
     – Also called osteogenesis

•   Two types of osteogenesis
     – Intramembranous ossification
        • Bones form according to CT membrane template
     – Endochondral ossification
        • Bone appears within cartilage and replaces it
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                              Kerry Henrickson

What is intramembranous ossification?
•   Formation of flat bones: ~ week 8 of development
•   Three stages
     – 1: ossification centers form
        • Develop inside a membrane template of bone which mesenchymal cells made
        • Mesenchymal cells in center condense, differentiate into osteoblasts

What is intramembranous ossification?
    –   2: osteoblasts create trabeculae
         • Secrete soft, collagenous matrix: osteoid tissue
         • Calcium phosphate deposited and bone hardens
         • Forming trabeculae become spongy bone (diploe)
         • Osteoblasts trapped in lacunae: osteocytes

What is intramembranous ossification?
    –   3: formation of compact bone
         • Outermost trabeculae continue to calcify, filling in spaces
         • Compact bone and periosteum form

How does the skull change after birth?
• Flat bones in skull fuse
• Via sutures:
    –   a fibrous CT joint between skull bones
• Joints incomplete at birth: fontanels
         • “soft spots”
         • Why?

Fall 2006                                             Cochise College

When do fontanels disappear?
• Frontal (anterior) fontanel: 18-24 mos.
• Others close within first year
    –   Sphenoidal (anterior lateral): ~ 3 mos.
    –   Mastoidal (posterior lateral): ~ 2-12 mos.
    –   Occipital (posterior): 2 mos.

How does spine shape change?
•   Newborn: C-shaped
•   Primary curvature: formed in fetus
•   Secondary curvature: formed after birth
     – Cervical: when crawling
     – Lumbar: when walking

What is endochondral ossification?
•   Most bones formed this way
    – Vertebrae, axillary, pelvis, etc.
    – AKA: cartilage replacement

•   Overview:
    – Mesenchyme becomes hyaline cartilage
       • ~ week 6 of development
    – Hyaline serves as template for ossification
       • Cartilage broken down
       • Calcified to make bone

What are the steps for endochondral ossification?
•   Step 1: bone collar forms
     – Late in 2nd month of development

    – Blood vessels invading perichondrium and forming a periosteum triggers event
    – Osteoblasts differentiate in periosteum
         • Form layer of compact bone: bone collar

What are the steps for endochondral ossification?
•   Step 2: chondrocytes swell (hypertrophy)
     – Signals mineralization of matrix
        • Switch from collagen II to X
     – Collar cuts off circulation to chondrocytes = death
        • Matrix deteriorates (cavitation)
        • Serves as splint/support
     – Cavity forms (primary marrow site)
        • Vacated lacunae and calcified cartilage matrix (temporary)

What are the steps for endochondral ossification?
•   Step 3: periosteal bud forms
     – Month 3 of development
     – Cavity invaded by blood vessels, hematopoietic cells, nerves, osteoblasts, osteoclasts = periosteal bud
     – osteoblasts form primary ossification center
        • Deposit osteoid matrix over calcified cartilage
        • Forms spongy bone: ossification spreads towards epiphysis

What are the steps for endochondral ossification?
•   Step 4: Medullary cavity forms
     – Osteoclasts degrade spongy bone
     – Secondary ossification centers: at heads, ~ at birth

•   Step 5: spongy bone develops at heads
     – Blood vessels invade head
     – Development proceeds similar to process in bone shaft

Bone Remodeling
F2f lecture

How do bones grow after birth?
•   Elongation at epiphyseal plate
     – Called interstitial growth
     – Cartilage organizes in zones
        • On epiphyseal side: new cartilage added
        • On diaphysis side: osteoblasts invade and produce bone

•   Also some appositional growth
     – Increase in diameter on outside of bone

How does interstitial growth happen?
•    Histological studies reveal steps
–            Five zones of cartilagenous/osseous cells
•    Cartilage moves from diaphysis to epiphysis
•    Bone follows

How do endochondral ossification and interstitial growth differ?
• Make a table of similarities and differences:
                   Endo.                 Interst.

How does appositional growth happen?
•   Balance between growth on outside and reabsorption on inside
     – Helps maintain proper bone shape during elongation
     – Without it: bones long, thin, but unable to withstand weight
     – Osteoclasts in endosteum dissolve bone
        • Expand medullary cavity toward epiphyses
        • This keeps proportions correct
     – Osteoblasts in periosteum produce new bone on outside
     – appositional growth animation

What controls epiphyseal plate?
• Hormones in childhood
  – Growth hormone stimulates protein synthesis and cell growth
  – Thyroid hormone stimulates osteoblasts and cell metabolism

• Sex hormones at puberty
    – Estrogen/testosterone stimulate mitosis of chondroblasts = growth spurt
         • make bone formation outpace cartilage growth
         • Epiphyseal line forms (women = 18; men = 21)

Bone Repair
F2F lecture

How does the body repair fractures?
• Takes two to three months
   – Similar to steps of skin repair
   – Hematoma, inflammation appear
   – Fibrocartilagenous callus forms: splints the bone
      • Similar to granulation step

What kinds of fractures are there?
• Closed (simple): clean break, within skin
• Compound (open): protrudes through skin
• Impacted: broken bones forced together
• Spiral: twisted (sports)
• Greenstick: children, twist but don’t break
• Comminuted: shatters into fragments
   – Often in elderly

How do you treat fractures?
• Closed reduction
    –   Manipulation into place without surgery
    –   Open reduction: surgical exposure, use of screws, pins, etc.
• Immobilize
    –   Cast or traction

Why do bones remodel?
Online lecture

Are bones static in adults?
•   No! Even as adults bone is constantly remodeled
    – Response to stresses, maintains bone integrity
        • Wolf’s Law
    – Osteoclasts and osteoblasts in balance = healthy bone
        • Out of balance = disease
           – Can you think of an example?

How is bone homeostasis maintained?
• Recall: bone remodeling always occurring
    –   5-7% of bone mass recycled weekly

         • Head of femur turns over every 5-6 mos.
              – Shaft takes longer
         • Use determines rate of replacement
         • At both endosteal and periosteal surfaces

What happens during remodeling?
• Bone dissolved, followed by deposition
• Osteoclasts secrete?
    –   Excavate a tunnel, releasing calcium
• Osteoblasts enter tunnel and secrete matrix
    –   Matrix mineralizes

Why remodel?
• Allows body to respond to changes in stress/use
    –   New bone deposition where stress strongest
         • Muscles pulling on bone can cause stress
         • Weight-bearing exercise also can
• Repairs microscopic fracture lines

What controls remodeling?
•   Calcium levels in blood monitored
     – Calcium needed for nerve impulses, muscle contraction, blood clotting, exocytosis

What controls remodeling?
•   Thyroid and parathyroid hormones
     – Thyroid: calcitonin if blood calcium high
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                                 Kerry Henrickson

         • Stimulates osteoblasts, inhibits osteoclasts

    – Parathyroid: PTH (parathyroid hormone) if blood calcium low
         • Stimulates osteoclasts, inhibits osteoblasts, reduce urinary Ca loss
         • Stimulates calcitriol synthesis (encourages intestines to absorb calcium)

What if calcium is out of balance?
•   Hypocalcemia: too little
    – Vit. D deficiency, diarrhea, thyroid tumor, underactive parathyroid
    – Excessive excitation of nerves
    – Tetanus (esp. carpopedal spasm)
    – Laryngospasm: leads to suffocation

•   Hypercalcemia: too much (rare)
    – Less excitable nerves, muscles
    – Muscle weakness, sluggish reflexes
    – Cardiac arrest possible

What is osteoporosis?
• Loss of bone mass
   – Bones become brittle, high fracture risk
       • Hip, wrist, vertebrae
   – Involves cancellous bone

Who gets it and why?
  – Anyone can get it
  – Most common in elderly women (esp. Caucasian)
      • Why?
      • Bone loss begins around age 35

    – Onset: menopause
         • Or andropause
         • HRT?

How is it prevented and treated?
• Prevention:
   – build maximal bone mass in childhood/teen years!
      • Consume calcium
      • Avoid soda pops with phosphoric acid!
   – maintain bone mass between 25 and 40
• Drugs: fosomax encourages osteoblasts

The Zahourek Maniken™ models are designed for you to develop a 3-dimensional understanding of
the muscles and related anatomical structures. During the course of this lab, you and your lab
partner will be creating the muscles listed below. As all these muscles could not be fashioned during
a 2-hour period, you will be offered times outside of lab to come in and work on your model. The
instructor will set deadlines for when the muscles need to be completed. You will show your model
to the instructor, being prepared to explain each muscle (its name, attachments, and action).

Be mindful of the tools available to you. The first is your own body. Do not hesitate to compare the
model and atlas images to your own body. As you perform the movement of the intended muscle on
your own body, the muscle will hopefully become more ‗real‘ to you and assist you to better
understand this system. There are also Maniken™ atlases, listing all the muscles in the body, their
attachments, and their actions. You also have your textbook. Use whatever resources you need.


1. Maniken™ model. Each 2-person team will be assigned a skeletal model. It is composed of six
   parts: torso and head (left and right halves), upper extremities, and lower extremities. Take some
   time to become familiar with the skeletal components of each part. Study the bony protrusions
   that will be important for muscle attachment. Each model also comes with a base for it to stand
   upon. There will be a place in the lab for you to keep your model during the semester.
2. Tools. There are some clay-working tools that will be available to you. All of the tools will be kept
   in one central location for you to retrieve from while you work.
3. Clay. There will be terra cotta-colored clay available for you to create your muscles. This clay will
   not dry out, but it may need to be kneaded somewhat to soften it before building the muscles.
   There will be some bone-colored clay available, for when you need to create fascias and fat pads
   underneath or around certain muscles. You may wish to wear a smock or laboratory coat during
   lab, as the terra cotta color may stain certain fabrics.
4. Atlases. There is a 5-volume atlas available in the lab for you to use. Other references may also be


1. Receive a Maniken™ model for your 2-person team. Obtain clay-working tools (wire tool and
   wood tool), as well as some terra cotta clay. Retrieve one of the atlases (it doesn‘t matter which at
   this time). Take a few moments to become familiar with the skeletal model; the bones and their
   processes. Compare the structures to your own body. Look through the atlas and learn how it is
   laid out. There is an index of muscles in the front of each atlas. For each muscle, the points of
   attachment and action are represented. With a marker and a piece of masking tape, name your
   model (place the label on the base).

2. The instructor will take a few minutes to review some of the skeletal anatomy of the models with
   you, as well as certain directional terms (i.e. anterior/posterior).

3. The instructor will demonstrate how to build the first four muscles on your list. Follow along as
   these are shown to you. Use the steps involved when building all the muscles on your list. Some
   of the muscles will be assembled on the right side and some on the left side. You will choose one
   side as ―Side 1‖ and the other as ―Side 2‖ (which is up to you).

4. Steps to building muscles.
   a. Find the muscle in the atlas. Determine where the muscle is on your own body.
   b. Determine the attachments of the muscle on the skeleton. You may use a pencil (NO pens!)
      to mark the attachments.
   c. Shape the clay into the appropriate muscle and attach it.
   d. Create striations in the muscle, using the wire tool. This will show the action of the muscle.

5. When instructed to do so, continue building the next muscles on your list. Since you will not be
   able to complete all the muscles during the lab period, make a note of where you leave off, then
   come back during assigned times to complete the list. The instructor will inform you as to how
   you will be tested on the construction of the muscles on your model.

6. You will need to identify the structures that you build to the instructor. There are checkpoints
   located throughout this list; you must correctly assemble and identify these structures before

7. At the end of each session, clean and return your tools. Clean your hands and your work area.
   Place your model in the appropriate location for storage. The models must NEVER leave the lab.

8. After final grading of models, you will be instructed on the steps involved in dismantling and
   cleaning your models (try to keep different colors of clay separate). Pictures will be taken of the
   students with their completed models.

   – always diarthrotic
       • Shoulder, knee, elbow, hip

More about synovial joints
What are the features of a synovial joint?
• Basic features
   – Joint (articular) cavity: contains slippery fluid
      • Articular capsule and cartilage bind cavity
   – Two capsule layers
      • Outer fibrous CT capsule, continuous w/periosteum
      • Inner synovial membrane: areolar CT which secretes fluid

What are some other features of synovial joints?
• Meniscus: pad of cartilage
   – Continuous with synovial membrane: Shock absorber
• Tendon: dense, regular CT
   – Attaches muscle to bone
• Ligament: dense, regular CT

What are some other features of synovial joints?
• Bursa: fibrous sac with synovial fluid
   – Between adjacent muscles
   – or where tendon passes over bone
   – Tendon sheaths: elongated bursa wrapped around tendon
   – hands and feet

What types of synovial joints are there?

Joint Stability
How stable are joints?
• Depends on type
   – Monoaxial: most stable
   – Multiaxial: least stable
   – Synarthrotic: strongest
   – Diarthrotic and synovial: weakest

What is the relationship between mobility and strength?
• Inverse!
• Strength det’d by:
       • # of ligaments,
       • tendon tension (via skeletal muscle),
       • presence of menisci

What about ball-and-socket joints?
• Hip and shoulder joints
  – Which is more stable and why?

Hip vs. Shoulder
•   Hip: deep socket, many ligaments, less mobility

Hip vs. Shoulder
• Shoulder: shallow socket, fewer ligaments, tendons of rotator cuff are primary stabilizers
   – Most mobile joint in body, most frequent dislocation

What about hinge joints?
• Elbow and knee
   – Which is more stable?

Elbow vs. Knee
• Elbow: humerus w/ulna (deep trochlear notch)
   – Many ligaments

Elbow vs. Knee
• Knee: complex joint
   – Three joints in one (including patella)
   – Femur fits loosely w/tibia, fibula
   – Menisci and ligaments/tendons stabilize

Joint Disorders
What are some joint problems?
• Strain: overstretching tendon/muscle

•   Sprain: tearing tendon/ligament
     – Partial tear: will heal slowly

    – Complete tear: surgery (arthroscopy)

•   Dislocation: displacement of bone
     – Sprain usually accompanies
     – Reduce (set) same as bones

What are some joint problems?
• Bursitis/tendinitis: inflammation of bursa or tendon sheath
   – Repetitive motion triggers; pain, swelling

•   Cartilage injury: knee is common
     – Tear meniscus; need surgery to avoid arthritis

What is arthritis?
•   Inflammation of joints

•   Two types
     – Osteoarthritis is most common
        • Articular cartilage wears away
        • Progressive, degenerative
        • Common in elderly:
            – morning stiffness,
            – grating joints (crepitus),
            – restricted movement

    – Rheumatoid arthritis
         •   Autoimmune disease
         •   Inflammation of synovial membranes degrades articular cartilage
         •   Degenerated joint ossifies (ankylosis): no mobility
         •   Surgery to replace

The muscular system:
An introduction
What is it?
•   Collection of ~600 skeletal muscles
     – Also many smooth muscles and heart tissue
•   Myology: study of muscle
•   Myo-, mys-, sarco- all refer to muscle

What do muscles do for me?
• Move you and your internal organs
• Provide stability
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                              Kerry Henrickson

• Maintain posture
• Control body openings/passages
• Produce body heat (~85% of it)

What are the parts of a muscle?
• Watch animation on your CD
•   Muscle cell = muscle fiber
    – long (up to 30 cm)
•   Epimysium:
•   Perimysium and fascicles
     – Fascicle = group of muscle fibers
        • Deep vs. superficial
• Endomysium
• CT sheaths = for blood vessels and nerves

What are the characteristics of muscle tissue?
• Excitability: ability to receive/respond to stimuli
   – Receive neurotransmitter (e.g. acetylcholine)
   – Response: contract
• Contractility: ability to shorten
• Extensibility: ability to be stretched/extended
• Elasticity: ability to recoil

Where do muscles attach to bone?
• Attached in a minimum of two places
   – Insertion: point which moves toward immovable bone
   – Origin: point of insertion at immovable bone
      • Limbs: usually origin is proximal to insertion
   – Also it (or its tendon) MUST cross a joint between the origin and insertion!
      • If a muscle (or its tendon) didn’t, what would happen?

How do muscles attach to bone?
•   Direct (fleshy) attachment
     – epimysium fused to periosteum or perichondrium

How do muscles attach to bone?
• Indirect attachment
   – Collagen fibers of epimysium become tendon
   – Tendon merges with periosteum
   – Much more common
   – Aponeurosis: sheetlike tendon connection
       • Scalp, abdomen, lumbar, hand, foot

How do muscles move together?
•   Agonist (prime mover)
     – Synergist helps
•   Antagonist: Opposes prime mover
•   Antagonistic pair: act on opposite side of joint
•   Fixator: e.g. to scapula so biceps move radius and not scapula

The muscular system: cellular anatomy
What special features are found in muscle fibers?
•   Multiple nuclei: fusion of many myoblasts
    – Satellite cells nearby
•   Sarcolemma
•   Sarcoplasm
     – Many glycosomes (with glycogen)
     – Lots of myoglobin
        • Stores oxygen like hemoglobin

What special features are found in muscle fibers?
•   Sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR): releases calcium
•   Myofibrils: many in each myocyte
    – long, contractile elements, parallel to myocyte length
        • Contains many myofilaments

How do muscles contract?
• First, look at anatomy of myofilaments
• Appears as a striation pattern
•   Sliding filament animation

What creates the striations?
• Alternating A (dark) and I (light) bands
• A band
   – H zone: light zone in middle
   – M line
   – Only visible when muscle relaxed
• I band
   – Z disc: dark line in middle
• Sarcomere = distance between two Z disks

What three myofilaments are found in myofibrils?
• Thick filaments: myosin
    –   Extends the length of A band
    –   Looks like golf club with two heads (cross bridges)

What three myofilaments are found in myofibrils?
•   Thin filaments: actin
        • Extend across I band, partially into A band
             – Anchored to Z disk

    – Tropomysin lines actin grooves
         • Troponin bound to tropomysin; binds calcium

What three myofilaments are found in myofibrils?
• Elastic filaments: titin (AKA connectin)
    –   Strong recoil, found in center of thick filament
         • Anchor thick filament to Z disc

What do all these proteins do?
• Contractile proteins
    –   Myosin and actin
    –   Workhorses

• Regulatory proteins
    –   Tropomysin and troponin
    –   Control when contraction happens
    –   Based on calcium availability

What determines calcium availability?
•   Sarcoplasmic reticulum
     – Smooth ER, forming parallel tubules
        • Tubules surround each myofibril
        • Stores calcium, releases it when NERVE demands it
•   Terminial cisternae: perpendicular ER tubules

What determines calcium availability?
• T tubules: at A band-I band junction
   – Extension of sarcolemma
   – Extends as tubule through paired terminal cisternae
      • Forms triad
   – Transmits nerve signal deep into myocyte
      • Stimulates calcium release from sarcoplasmic ret.

So how do all these parts make muscles contract?
• Sliding filament theory
    –   Time for that CD!
• Result: thin filaments slide along thick filaments causing contraction

The muscular system: The neuromuscular junction
How do nerves “tell” muscles to contract?
• Via action potentials
   – Changes in electrical charge across sarcoplasm
   – Stimulates calcium release

• Called Excitation-Contraction Coupling
    – First, we need to know more about neuromuscular junctions and action potentials

Where do nerve and muscle touch?
•   Neuromuscular junction
    – Motor neuron stimulates skeletal muscle
    – Axon divides to form numerous neuromuscular junctions
       • One neuromuscular junction per muscle fiber
       • Motor unit = all myocytes innervated by one nerve (20-1,000)
          – More motor units = finer control
       • Muscles have > 1 motor unit to prevent fatigue

Where do nerve and muscle touch?
•   Synaptic cleft separates muscle fiber from nerve
     – 60-100 nm space
     – Synaptic knob (end of axon)
     – Motor end plate (depression in muscle fiber)

If nerve and muscle don’t touch, how do they communicate?
• Nerve impulse reaches axon
    – Voltage-regulated calcium gates open, cause
    – Synaptic vesicles to be exocytosized
       • Release acetylcholine (ACh)
       • ACh traverses synaptic cleft
• ACh receptors on myocyte bind Ach
    – Stimulates opening of calcium gates
    – Action potential propagates down T tubules
       • Calcium released to stimulate contraction

What is a polarized cell?
• All cells are polarized (resting potential)
   – Differential charge across PM
   – High K+ inside, high Na+ outside
   – Also DNA, RNA high negative charge
• Overall, inside of cell is neg., outside pos.

What are action potentials?
1. Depolarization
    – When ACh binds to ACh receptors, Na+ sensitive gates open
       • Inflow of Na+ changes charge (voltage) difference across membrane

What are action potentials?
2. Propagation
    –   action potential spreads across sarcolemma
    –   Opens voltage-sensitive Ca2+ gates

What are action potentials?
3. Repolarization
    – K+ gates open to reestablish charge
    – Refractory period: time its takes to reestablish charge

How does a cell return to its resting state?
•   After several rounds of depolarization, too much Na+ on inside
•   Na+/K+ pumps
    – Export 3 Na+ and import 2 K+

Meanwhile, back at the synaptic cleft…
• Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) destroys
    –   any ACh still in synaptic cleft
    –   Prevents continual stimulation

What happens during excitation-contraction coupling?
•    Action potential travels along sarcolemma and down T tubules
•    Action potential reaches triad
   –    causes terminal cisternae to release calcium into sarcoplasm
•    Calcium bind to troponin, moves tropomyosin out of the way

What happens during excitation-contraction coupling?
•     Contraction
•    Myosin heads attach to actin and pull thin filaments toward H line
    • Attachment, power stroke, reattachment, cocking
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                                     Kerry Henrickson

•       Relaxation
•    Within 30 ms, calcium removed
    •   via ATP-driven calcium pump
•    At same time AChE degrades ACh
•    Tropomyosin blockage reestablished
    • cross bridge activity ceases

The muscular system:
dynamics and energy requirements
What makes a contraction strong?
•   Length-tension relationship
     – Too little = ___________ contraction
     – Too much overlap = contraction ___________
•   Optimal overlap allows for greatest contraction
     – CNS maintains constant, partial contraction: tonus (muscle tone)

How do whole muscles work?
• Threshold: minimum voltage for contraction
• Stimulate a nerve or a myocyte:
   – Latent-period: delay before contraction (for excitation, etc.)
   – Higher voltage does not produce stronger contraction

So how do muscles contract at varying strengths?
• Recruitment
   – Multiple motor unit summation
• Temporal summation
   – Produces treppe (staircase phenomenon)
   – If enough stimuli fast enough, produces incomplete tetanus
   – Why?
       • Stimuli too rapid to clear calcium between contractions?
       • Heat released causes enzymes to work more efficiently (e.g. warm-up exercises)?

What happens if muscle stimulated too much?
• Individual contractions fuse to smooth contraction
    –   Complete tetanus
    –   Different than the disease tetanus
         • This blocks glycine (an inhibitor) release

Where do muscles get the ATP needed to contract?
• Anaerobic fermentation
   – Pro: don’t need oxygen to make ATP
   – Cons: only makes a little ATP and produces lactic acid
• Aerobic respiration
   – Pro: much greater ATP yield
   – Con: requires oxygen

How much ATP do muscles need?
•   Yes, if you only want to shorten your muscle by about 1%
•   Cycle repeated until desired shortening reached
     – Usually this is about 30 to 35%
     – Note: always some myosin heads attached
        • Prevents thin filament from sliding back
•   Cycle stops if SR pumps calcium back out of sarcoplasm
     – Also stops if no more ATP

What if there’s no ATP?
• Rigor mortis
   – Starts at 3 to 4 hrs after death
   – Peaks at 12 hours
   – Dissipates over next 48 to 60 hrs
• Calcium no longer pumped out
   – Myosin stays stuck to actin
   – ATP runs out shortly after person stops breathing

    – No ATP means myosin heads can’t detach
    – Rigor mortis disappears as muscle proteins break down
    – Related to liver mortis

When do muscles use each ATP-generating path?
•   Immediate demand (e.g. quick sprint, ~10 secs)
     – Myoglobin supplies oxygen
     – Phosphate groups donated to ADP from:
        • Another ADP (myokinase orchestrates this)
        • Creatinine phosphate (creatinine kinase directs)

When do muscles use each ATP-generating path?
•   Short-term (as phosphate borrowing runs out)
     – Shift to anaerobic while awaiting oxygen
     – Glycogen-lactic acid system
     – 30-40 seconds of energy

What happens after 40 secs?
•   Long-term energy
     – Oxygen delivery catches up with demands
     – Aerobic respiration supported

Why do muscles fatigue?
• Different from psychological fatigue!
   – Run out of glucose and glycogen
   – ATP shortage slows Na/K pumps
       • Resting potential not maintained
   – Release of K+ to interstitial fluid lowers membrane potential and excitability
   – Motor nerves use up acetylcholine

Why do I keep breathing heavy after I stop running?
• Oxygen debt
   – Convert lactic acid to pyruvic acid
      • Most converted back to glucose
   – Replacing oxygen reserves (myoglobin, hemoglobin, etc.)
   – Replenish creatinine phosphate and AMP to ATPs

What are slow- and fast-twitch muscle fibers?
•   Slow twitch
     – Small, AKA red fibers, long twitches
     – More mitochondria, myoglobin, capillaries
        • Why? More oxygen consumption and aerobic respiration
     – Postural muscles of back, soleus

What are slow- and fast-twitch muscle fibers?
• Fast twitch
    –   Large, AKA white fibers, short twitches
         • Many creatinine, glycogen-lactic acid pathways
    –   Gastrocnemius

Adapting to exercise
•   Muscle fibers add filaments, not more myocytes (hypertrophy)
•   Red muscle adds more mitochondria, myoglobin
•   Heart hypertrophies

Smooth and cardiac muscle
What’s so special about cardiac muscle?
• Recall characteristics
• Does not require nerve stimulus for contraction

    –   Pacemaker
    –   Autrorhythmic
• Aerobic respiration

What makes smooth muscle so smooth?
•   Lack striation, Z discs, T tubules
     – Calcium comes from interstitial fluid
•   Fusiform shape
     – Actin filaments anchored to dense body
     – Myosin filaments in between actin filaments
•   Can undergo mitosis

What kinds of smooth muscles are there?
•   Multi-unit
    – Muscle fibers structurally independent of one another
    – Arrector pili, larger arteries, pulmonary airways, iris
•   Single-unit (visceral muscle)
     – All cells contract as a unit, joined by gap junctions
     – Contract like a single cell
     – Most smooth muscle in body

How are smooth muscles stimulated?
• Can contract without nerve stimulus
   – Hormones, carbon dioxide levels, low pH, lack of oxygen, stretch reflex
• Also has ANS innervation
   – Varicosities: synaptic vesicles secreted
   – Nerve fiber passes among several myocytes = diffuse junctions

How do smooth muscles contract?
• Calcium gates on PM
   – Voltage-regulated
   – Ligand-regulated (hormones)
   – mechanically-regulated (stretch): peristalsis

• No troponin; calmodulin instead
    – Calcium binds to calmodulin
    – Long latent period, slow contraction and slow relaxation
         • Latch-bridge mechanism keeps myosin heads bound, prolongs contraction
         • E.g. vasomotor tone

         • Usually entirely in CNS; 99% of all your neurons

Nerve physiology:
Action potentials
What does it mean when a neuron “fires”?
• Firing = excitability = action potential = nerve impulse
• Recall resting potential of all cells
   – High K+ in; high Na+ out
   – Cell is polarized
   – Cell overall neg. charge inside due to molecules like proteins, RNA, DNA
       • Charge measured in millivolts
       • Potential = difference in charge across PM
       • Current = flow of charge (ions) from one point to another

What lets ions move across the PM?
•   Membrane ion channels (proteins)
    – Passive (leakage): always open
    – Active (gated): usually either opened or closed depending on type of gate
       • Chemically-gated: ligand-gated
           – E.g. ACh ion gate
       • Voltage-gated: open/close in response to change in potential

What causes resting potential in the first place?
•   Membrane permeability
    – K+ permeable, but not Na+ permeable
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                      Kerry Henrickson

         • Creates membrane potential
         • K+ leave cell but Na+ can’t enter
            Result: overall neg. charge inside cell
    – Na+/K+ pump maintains but does not create resting potential
       • Always a lot of K+ leaking out and a little Na+ leaking in

What is depolarization?
• Reduction in membrane potential
   – Less difference between in- and outside of cell
   – i.e cells becomes less negative (-70 mV to -50 mV)
   – Cell can also temporarily become positive
   – Excitatory event

• Hyperpolarization
    – Cell becomes more negative than normal
    – e.g. -70 mV to -90 mV
    – Inhibitory event

What are local potentials?
• Short-lived, local changes in membrane potential
• Can depolarize or hyperpolarize cell
• Ligand-regulated
• Graded = magnitude varies w/strength of stimulus
   – Stronger stimulus = greater voltage change, longer travel of current
   – Caused when ion gates open due to stimulus

What happens during an action potential?
•     Follow on graph
•     Sodium ions arrive at axon hillock
    •     Depolarizes membrane
•     Threshold reached (-55 mV)

What happens during an action potential?

•  Voltage-regulated Na+ (fast) gates open
  • Slow voltage-regulated K+ gates also open
  •  Depolarization begins
• Propagation of signal

What happens during an action potential?
5. Na+ gates close (inactivate) above 0 mV
       - voltage peaks around 35 mV
       - fully depolarized
6. At voltage peak, K+ gates are finally fully open
       - repolarization begins at K+ flows out
   – How is this different from resting potential?

What happens during an action potential?
7. K+ gates closer more slowly than Na+ gates
        - result: more K+ out than Na+ in
        - overshoot = hyperpolarization

What happens after an action potential?
•   Refractory period: few millisecs
     – Time during which can’t stimulate neuron a second time
     – Happens until recovery of resting potential

•   Two stages
     – Absolute refractory period
        • No new action potential possible

    – Relative refractory period
         • Can trigger new action potential if stimulus is very strong
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                                   Kerry Henrickson

Nerve physiology: graded vs. action potential
F2F Lecture
What causes changes in membrane potential?
•   Any change in membrane permeability to an ion
•   Any change in ion concentrations on the two sides of the membrane
•   Either causes one of two types of signals
     – Graded potentials
        • Short-distance signals
     – Action potentials
        • Long-distance signals

What are local potentials?
•   Short-lived, local changes in membrane potential
•   Can depolarize or hyperpolarize cell
•   Ligand-regulated
•   Graded = magnitude varies w/strength of stimulus
     – Stronger stimulus = greater voltage change, longer travel of current
     – Caused when ion gates open due to stimulus

What are local potentials?
• Examples
   – Energy (heat, light) open ion gates: generator potential (more in later chapters)
   – Neurotransmitter opens gates: postsynaptic potential
• Dissipate rapidly (decremental)
   – Due to leaky PM, Na+ in immediately balanced by K+ out
   – Most charge is quickly lost through membranes

What are action potentials?
•   Only occur where high concentration of voltage-regulated gates
     – e.g. axon hillock (trigger zone)
     – If not enough gates for large voltage change, then potential is local only
•   A local potential can cause an action potential
     – Must be strong enough when it hits trigger zone
     – Proximity to axon hillock matters
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                          Kerry Henrickson

What are the characteristics of an action potential?
•   All-or-none response
     – Stronger stimulus doesn’t produce stronger action potential
     – If not enough charge change at hillock, nothing happens
         • Local potential dies out
•   Nondecremental
•   Irreversible: can’t stop it once it starts
     – By comparison, local potentials are reversible

What happens after an action potential?
• Refractory period: few millisecs
   – Time during which can’t stimulate neuron a second time
   – Happens until recovery of resting potential
• Two stages
   – Absolute refractory period
      • No new action potential possible
   – Relative refractory period
      • Can trigger new action potential if stimulus is very strong

How do action potentials travel down the axon?
•   Nerve signal = traveling wave of excitation produced by action potentials
•   Unmyelinated sheaths
     – Slower transmission
     – Action potential must open all gates between hillock and synaptic knob
        • Called continuous conduction

How do action potentials travel down the axon?
• Myelinated sheaths
    –   Many times faster transmission
    –   Action potential skips from one node of Ranvier to the next
         • Called saltatory conduction
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                                Kerry Henrickson

What else influences speed of action potential?
•   Axon diameter
     – The larger the diameter, the faster the speed of transmission
     – Less resistance to current flow with larger diameter

What happens if myelination is lost?
•   Multiple sclerosis
    – Autoimmune disease
    – Usually young adults
    – Blindness, problems controlling muscles
        • Ultimately paralysis
    – Immune system attacks myelin sheaths and nerve fibers
        • Scar tissue (scleroses) replaces some damaged cells
        • Other now unmyelinated axons sprout Na+ channels
            – Accounts for sporadic nature of disease?

What happens when the nerve signal reaches the synaptic knob?
•   First some terminology
     – Synapse: junction between two neurons
         • Use neurotransmitters
             – Allows for integration/evaluation of information
     – Presynaptic neuron
         • Can synapse with next neurons dendrites, soma or axon
     – Postsynaptic neuron
     – Synaptic cleft

What are neurotransmitters?
•   Chemicals which cross synaptic cleft
     – Communicate with postsynaptic neuron
•   Over 100 known neurotransmitters
     – ACh, serotonin, glutamate, aspartate, glycine, GABA, NE, dopamine, histamine
•   Excitatory or inhibitory
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                                        Kerry Henrickson

How do other neurotransmitters work?
•   ACh and some others are ionotropic
     – Alters membrane potential
•   Rest are metabotropic
     – Use secondary messenger (e.g. cyclic AMP) to alter postsynaptic cell metabolism
     – Neurotransmitter activates cAMP production
     – For example<

How does a nerve signal stop?
•   Neurotransmitters usually bind for only about 1 msec
    – Then detaches, then reattaches, then detaches<
•   If no new neurotransmitter available, stimulus stops
     – This can happen one of three ways
         • Diffusion
         • Destruction (e.g. AChE)

         • Reuptake
            – Cocaine

            – SSRIs

How do SSRIs work?

How do neurons integrate multiple signals?
• Like a democracy: count the votes!
• Mechanisms neurons use to process, store and retrieve information
• Postsynaptic potentials
   – Excitatory postsynaptic potential (EPSP)
      • Na+ flows in an cancels some of neg. charge
      • Glutamate, aspartate
   – Inhibitory postsynaptic potential (IPSP)
      • Increases neg. charge
      • Neurotransmitter opens Cl- gates into cell
      • Glycine, GABA
   – ACh, NE can be either EPSPs or IPSPs

How do neurons integrate multiple signals?
• Summation: adding up postsynaptic potentials
   – Sum determines if fire or not
   – Need about 30 EPSPs to reach threshold
• Temporal summation: new EPSPs arrive before decay of previous EPSP
   – Summation exceeds threshold
• Spatial summation: several different synapses all emit EPSPs
   – Enough Na+ enters to reach threshold

What are neuronal circuits?
• Pathways among neurons
• Diverging circuits
   – Large scale muscle contraction
• Converging circuits
   – Good for incoming sensory information to converge in one part of brain
• Reverberating circuit
   – Promotes inhalation (when reverberation stops, you exhale)
• Parallel after-charge circuit
   – Seeing light bulb image after closing eyes

What parts make up the PNS?
• PNS nerves arise from brain and sacral regions of spinal cord
   – Often called the craniosacral division
   – Leave brainstem by four cranial nerves
      • Oculomotor (III), glossopharyngeal (IX), facial (VII) and vagus (X)

What is the enteric nervous system?
• Plexus (net) of about 100 M neurons in wall of digestive tract
   – Regulates motility, secretion
• Both SNS and PNS help regulate
• Still fairly independent, however

What are adrenergic receptors?
• Two types of receptor cells
   – Alpha- () adrenergic receptors
      • Usually NE excites
   – Beta- () adrenergic receptors
      • Usually NE inhibits
      • Beta-blockers such as propranolol<

What’s an example of the difference between  and ?
• NE binds to
  – -adrenergic receptors in blood vessels --> vasoconstriction and thus _____________
  – -adrenergic receptors in heart and skeletal muscle --> dilate these blood vessels and thus
      • Also relaxes bronchioles, which thus _____________

What is dual innervation?
• Viscera have both SNS and PNS
   – Can be antagonistic or cooperative

•   Antagonistic effects
     – E.g. SNS speeds heart, but PNS slows it
     – SNS dilates pupil, PNS constricts it
Bio 201 Lecture Packet                                                          Kerry Henrickson

•   Cooperative effects
     – Both act on different effectors for common goal
        • PNS stimulates serous cells to make watery secretion
        • SNS stimulates mucous cells to make mucus
        • Need both for proper saliva

Is dual innervation always necessary?
• No!
• One part of ANS can have opposite effects all by itself
• Many cells only have SNS fibers
    – Arector pilli, suderiferous glands, many blood vessels, adrenal medulla
    – Blood vessels: vasomotor tone
        • Partial contraction all the time
        • Drop in firing frequency --> dilation
        • Increase --> constriction

• Cerebral cortex
   – Limbic system connects conscious thoughts with hypothalamus
• Hypothalamus
   – Major controller of visceral motor system
      • Hunger, thirst, temp reg., emotions, etc.

What controls the ANS?

   – House cranial nerve nuclei so controls
      • Pupil constriction (oculomotor nerve)
      • Lacrimal, salivary, nasal secretion (facial nerve)
      • Salivation, bp (glossopharyngeal nerve)
      • Thoracic and abdominal viscera (vagus nerve)
• Spinal cord
   – Defecation and micturition
   – Can also consciously inhibit

•This creates receptor potential
         –May cause release of neurotransmitter
         –Creates sensation if this cell is a neuron and it fires to CNS
•Sensation: conscious awareness of stimulus

What kinds of information do receptors transmit?
•Intensity: encoded three ways
       –Firing frequency
       –More nerve fibers recruited to fire
       –Weak stimuli activate only most sensitive fibers

                   •Except opsin has slightly different AA sequence
         –Three types: red, blue, green

How do visual pigments help me see?
•Photochemical reaction of rhodopsin
         –Cis-retinal: in the dark
•Purple color
         –Trans-retinal: after absorbs photon
•Bleaching: changing to trans-retinal form
•Loses purple color and dissociates from opsin
•Transported to pigment epithelium then restored to cis-retinal
         –Takesabout 5 minutes to regenerate 50%
         –Why you “go blind” walking out of the movie theater after a matinee!

How is bleaching converted to a neuronal signal?
•Dark current: resting rod cells send constant signal
       –Via open Na+ gates
•These kept open as long as rhodopsin inactive (cis-retinal)
•Glutamate (inhibitor) secretion to bipolar neuron continues and bipolar not allowed to fire
       –In light: rhodopsin activated by loss of trans-retinal

•Produces cGMP molecules which close Na+ gates
•Glutamate secretion ceases, thus causing bipolar neuron to fire to brain
•About 600 rods converge on one bipolar neuron!

Why do I have both rods and cones?
•Duplicity theory
         –One cell can’t have both high sensitivity and high resolution
         –Many rods converge on one bipolar neuron
                   •Great for detecting tiniest amount of light
                   •Terrible at details because too large an area covered by one bipolar neuron

Why do I have both rods and cones?
     –Fovea centralis: 4,000 cones, no rods
     •Why best focus is in middle of field of vision
     •Cones very small so good resolution
     •Each cone synapses with only one bipolar neuron which synapses with only one ganglion cell

How do cones detect different colors?
•Each cone type detects one wavelength better than others
         –E.g. red cones detect large spectrum of light
                   •But only cones to respond to red light
         –Red-green (lacking red or green cones)

What is stereopsis?
•Depth perception
       –Two eyes see slightly different images
       –Overlap allows for depth perception
•Compare with panoramic vision

How does optical information reach the brain?
•Bipolar cells to ganglion cells

•Axons form optic nerve
         –Exit at optic foramen
         –Part of axons cross at optic chiasm
                   •Called hemidecussation
                   •Objects in left visual field
                               on right half of each retina (medial side of left eye, lateral side of right eye) are
                           picked up by right cerebral hemisphere
                   •Allows right brain to “see” what’s happening on opposite side of body where it has motor
