With respect to chemical communication and signal transduction, A. Describe three ways in which cells communicate with one another; give an example of each. 1. protein channels (gap junctions) coordinate activity with adjacent cells 2. PM-bound signaling molecules (receptors) affect itself and others in direct contact 3. secrete chemical signals (ligands) b. five forms of signaling mediated by secreted molecules; give an example of each. Intracrine ligands are produced by the target cell itself and bind to a receptor within. Autocrine ligands are finely distinct in that although they are also made by the target cell, they are first secreted and then later bind to the cell as well as neighboring cells (ex. Immune cells). Juxtacrine ligands target adjacent cells (often called “contact-dependent” signaling). Paracrine ligands target cells in the vicinity of the original emitting cell (ex. Neurotransmitters like Acetylcholine). Endocrine cells produce hormones that have the important task of targeting distant cells and often travel through our circulatory system. 2. Describe an example of a molecule(s) transported by active mediated transport (facilitated diffusion); describe active transport and the sodium-potassium pump. An example of facilitated diffusion is the movement of glucose into the cell, where it is used to make ATP. Their diffusion is facilitated by membrane proteins that form sodium channels (or “pores”) so that Na+ ions can move down their concentration gradient from outside the cells to inside the cells. 3. Describe the steps of the cAMP second messenger pathway and identify several cell responses to common neurotransmitters and steroids, which are first messenger molecules to cAMP second messenger pathway. -Second messengers are intracellular signaling molecules released by the cell in response to exposure to extracellular signaling molecules—the first messengers. First messengers are extracellular factors, often hormones or neurotransmitters, such as epinephrine, growth hormone, and serotonin. -AC Pathway. The AC pathway begins with an outside signal, such as a hormone, that binds to a receptor on a cell surface. The receptor then activates a G-protein by causing a change from GDP to GTP. The alpha piece of Gs, when activated, tells the AC to begin changing ATP to Cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP, cyclic AMP, or 3',5'-cyclic adenosine monophosphate) . -cAMP is a second messenger important in many biological processes. cAMP is a derivative of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and used for intracellular signal transduction in many different organisms, conveying the cAMP-dependent pathway for the activation of specific proteins.   Chapter 2: Altered Cellular & Tissue Study Guide Multiple Choice Identify the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question. 1.

Discuss the pathophysiologic processes of cellular injury from hypoxia. In hypoxic states, the lack of oxygen causes a decrease in mitochondrial phosphorylation. To maintain ATP production, the cell switches to anaerobic (glycolytic) metabolism. This results in rapid depletion of glycogen stores, and an accumulation of lactic acid (byproduct of anaerobic metabolism), which decreases the pH of the nucleus, and results in chromatin clumping. The reduction in ATP levels causes the ATP-reliant ion transport pumps in the plasma membrane to fail: Failure of the sodium-calcium exchanger results in intracellular calcium accumulation, while failure of the sodium-potassium pump results in sodium accumulation within the cell, cellular swelling, and diffusion of potassium out of the cell. The damage to the cell membrane changes its permeability, allowing rapid diffusion of even more calcium and water from the extracellular fluid into the cell. The influx of water causes dilation of the endoplasmic reticulum, subsequent ribosomal detachment, and reduced protein synthesis. As this cascade continues, the entire cell becomes swollen with increased concentrations of water, sodium, and chloride, and decreased concentrations of potassium. If oxygen is restored, these changes can be reversed, however with continued hypoxia, vacuolation occurs (formation of vacuoles: small cytoplasmic cavities) within the cytoplasm, there is swelling of the lysosomes and mitochondria, and calcium continues to accumulate. These processes ultimately result in the death of the cell: Digestive enzymes that leak from the swollen lysosomes cause autodigestion of intracellular contents, lysis of the plasma membrane, and cellular death. Alternatively, increased calcium levels activate multiple enzyme systems (proteases, nitric oxide synthase, phospholipases, endonuclease) that result in damage to the cytoskeleton, cellular membrane damage, inflammation, ATP depletion, and DNA and chromatin degradation, leading to cell death. 2. Briefly describe the differences between the various forms of cellular adaptations to disease (atrophy, hypertrophy, hyperplasia, dysplasia, metaplasia). Cellular adaptation is a reversible, structural, or functional response both to normal or physiologic conditions & to adverse or pathologic conditions 1.) Atrophy: decrease or shrinkage in cell size. Most common in skeletal, heart, secondary sex organs & brain. (Physiologic-occurs with early development such as when thymus gland undergoes atrophy during childhood. Pathologic-occurs as a result of decreases in workload, pressure, use, nerve stimulation) 2.) Hypertrophy: increase in size of cells and size of infected organ. Cells of the heart and kidneys are prone to enlargement. Increased size in associated with an increase in accumulation of protein in cellular components (plasma membrane, ER, mitochondria) and NOT with an increase in cellular fluid. can be physiologic or pathologic- caused by specific hormone stimulation or increased functional demand. Two types of signals- a. mechanical signals- stretch b. trophic signals- growth factors, hormones, and vasoactive agents. Ex. Kidney is removed, other kidney is larger. Physiologic- NORMAL, Pathologic- BAD. Pathologic example- hypertension. 3.) Hyperplasia: increase in number of cells resulting from an increased rate of cellular division. As a response to injury, occurs when injury has been severe and prolonged long enough to cause cell death. Hyperplasia and hypertrophy go hand in hand If cells can synthesize DNA. Two types of physiologic- compensatory (adaptative mechanism that causes cells to regenerate) Ex. Compensatory hyperplasia is the callus (thickening) of the skin as a result of hyperplasia of epidermal cells in response to a mechanical stimulus. Removing part of liver leads remaining cells to regenerate for loss and hormonal (in estrogen dependent organs such as uterus and breast. Pregnancy occurs- uterus enlarges. Pathological- abnormal proliferation of normal cells, usually in response to excessive hormonal stimulation or growth. Ex. Hyperplasia of endometrium= excessive menstrual bleeding. 4.) Dysplasia: abnormal changes in size, shape, and organization of mature cells. Not a true adaptive process but related to hyperplasia- called atypical hyperplasia. Does not indicate cancer and may not progress to cancer. 5.) Metaplasia: reversible replacement of 1 mature cell type by another, sometimes less differentiated cell type. Develop from a reprogramming of stem cells that exist on most epithelia or of undifferentiated mesenchymal cells present in connective tissue. EX cigarette smoke replaces cells. Bronchial tubes are normal ciliated epithelial cells replaced with stratified squamous epithelial cells. Bronchial metaplasia can be reversed if the inducing stimulus, usually cigarettes, is removed.

Briefly compare and contrast the four different types of hypersensitivity reactions. Be able to discuss the mediators and responses to the mediators; provide an example of each reaction. Type 1: IgE-Mediated Mediated by antigen-specific IgE and the products of tissue mast Cells -Histamine (most potent mediator) acts on H1 and H2 receptors - acts on H1 receptors 1. Contracts bronchial smooth muscles à bronchial constriction 2. Increases vascular permeability à edema 3. Vasodilation à increases blood flow into affected areas -acts on H2 receptors 1. increases gatic acid secretion and a decrease of histamine released from mast cells and basophils -Mast cells initiate synthesis of bioactive lipid-derived mediators such as leukotrienes, platelet-activating factor (PAF), and prostaglandins à each released much more slowly than histamine and can mediate, yet more prolonged, clinical symptoms such as recruiting inflammatory cells (eg. Neutrophils, eosinophils), promoting vascular permeability and edema, inducing bronchoconstriction or rhinitis, and inducing further release of histamine form mast cells Example: seasonal allergic rhinitis Type 2: Tissue Specific Antibody binds to antigen on cell surface Mediator – antibody binding to tissue-specific antigens or antigens that have attached to particular tissues 1. Cell can be destroyed by antibody (IgG or IgM) and activation of complement cascade through classical pathways 2. Antibody cause cell destruction through phagocytosis by macrophages. IG and also C3b of the complement system are opsonins that bind to receptors on the macrophage. 3. Antibody may attract neutrophils. Neutrophils bond to tissues through receptors for the Fc potion of the antibody (Fc receptor) or for C3b and attempt to phagocytose the tissue. Neutrophils release their granules onto healthy tissue to cause damage b/c the tissue is so large, phagocytosis cannot be completed 4. Antibody-dependent cell-memdiated cytotoxicity (ADCC) involves subpopulation of cytotoxic cells that are not antigen specific (natural killer [NK] cells). Antibody on the target cell is recognized by Fc receptors on the NK cells, which release toxic substances that destroy target cell 5. Does not destroy target cell, but rather causes malfunction. The antibody reacts with receptors on target cell surface and modulates the function of the receptor by preventing interactions with their normal ligands, replacing the ligand and inappropriately stimulating the receptor, or destroying the receptor. Example: Graves disease (Hyperthyroidism) Type 3: Immune Complex Antibody binds to soluble antigen that was released into blood or body fluids, and the complex is deposited in the tissues (therefore, not organ specific and symptoms have little to do with particular antigenic target of antibody) Mediator – neutrophils and lysosomal enzymes 1. Harmful effects of immune complex deposition are cused by complement activation, through generation of chemotactic factors for neutrophil 2. Neutrophils bind to antibody and C3b contained in the complexes and attempt to ingest immune complexes (unsuccessful) 3. During attempted phagocytosis, large quantities of lysosomal enzymes released into inflammatory site 4. Attraction of neutrophils and subsequent release of lysosomal enzymes cause most of the resulting tissue damage 5. Large immune complexes are cleared rapidly from circulation by tissue macrophages 6. Small complexes are filtered out from blood through kidneys 7. Intermediate complexes are deposited in target tissues with pathologic consequences à inflammation of kidneys (glomerulonephritis), vessels (vasculitis), or joints (arthritis or degenerative joint disease) Example: Systemic lupus erythematosus Type 4: Cell-Mediated Mediator: T lymphocytes 1. Type IV occur through cytotoxic T lymphocytes (Tc cells) or lymphokine-producing Th1 and Th17 cells 2. Tc cells attack and destroy cellular targets directly 3. Th1 and Th17 cells produce cytokines that recuit and activate phagocytic cells, especially macrophages 4. Destruction of tissue is usually caused by direct killing by toxins from Tc cells or by released of soluble factors, such as lysosomal enzymes and toxic reaction oxygen species (ROS), from activated macrophages Example: Hashimoto disease (Hypothyroidism) 1. Briefly describe the pathophysiologic mechanism of the autoimmune disorders SLE and transfusion reactions. Systemic Lupus Erytheamtosus -Deposition of circulating immune complexes containing antibody against DNA produces tissue damage in individuals -Removal of DNA is slowed in the presence of immune complexes à ↑ potential for deposition in the kidney -Deposition of immune complexes composed of DNA and antibody causes inflammatory lesions in the renal tubular basement membranes, brain (choroid plexus), heart, spleen, lung, gastrointestinal tract, skin, and peritoneum. Blood Transfusion Reaction -A severe transfusion reaction occurs and the transfused erythrocytes are destroyed by agglutination or complement-mediated lysis 1. What are the pathophysiologic principles on which gamma-globulin therapies are based? -Individuals with B cell deficiencies that cause hypogammaglobulinemia or agammaglobinemia are usually treated by administration of immune gamma-globulin by IM or IV or SubQ -Administration of gamma-globulin replaces the individual’s antibodies temporarily; these antibodies have a half-life of 3-4 weeks Chapter 10: Infection ____ 1.

Vascular permeability is increased, allowing blood borne substances involved in the destruction to enter the infected site. Endotoxins increase the permeability of the vasculature which causes leakage of large volumes of plasma. This action of will cause hypotension and possible sepsis as well as cardiogenic shock. In addition, the endotoxins released can create a cascade effect of coagulation and cause dissemented intravascular coagulation (DIC) 1. Candida is the most common fungal infection in people with cancer, transplantation, and HIV/AIDs. Briefly describe the ways in which candida contributes to tissue destruction. Initial step consists of the adhesion of single fungal yeast cells to the substrate forming a foundation of a basal yeast cell layer. This is followed by a phase of cell proliferation across the surface and filamentation where cells form elongated projections that continue to grow into the filamentous hyphal forms (initiation step). The production of hyphae is a hallmark of the initiation of biofilm formation followed by the accumulation of an extracellular polysaccharide matrix as the biofilm matures. Non-adherent yeast cells are released from the biofilm into the surroundings where they can colonize other surfaces (dispersal step). Dispersion of biofilm-associated cells carries great clinical significance as released cells can initiate formation of new biofilms or disseminate into host tissues and therefore, they are associated with candidemia and disseminated invasive disease Chapter 11: Stress & Disease Study Guide Multiple Choice: Identify the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question. ____ 1.

A highly educated patient with known cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) asks you to describe the pathophysiologic mechanism of why stress is “bad” for them. You have no more than 15 minutes to spend with the patient. Focusing on the two diseases this patient has (CVD and T2D), how would you succinctly, and in a scholarly way, answer this patient? When someone is experiencing stress, the body releases hormones that trigger the “fight or flight” response. While these effects can sometimes be helpful, such as when a mother experiencing the hormonal surge can muster the strength to lift a car off of her child, over the long term, they can wreak havoc on the body. Some of the main stress hormones are epinephrine, or adrenaline, norepinephrine, and cortisol. Cortisol puts gas in the body’s tank: It is released in times of stress to help supply the body with as much energy as possible in response to immediate threats by directing a series of actions that increase the energy available in the body for muscles to burn. Cortisol tells the body to increase blood glucose by breaking down glycogen stores in the body, directs cells to resist insulin’s signals to absorb and store glucose in the blood, and prompts cravings for high-calorie foods. At the same time, epinephrine works to increase the concentration of glucose in the blood by stimulating glucose production in the liver. When cortisol and epinephrine levels are consistently high, it results in higher blood sugar and higher insulin resistance, forcing the pancreas to produce more and more insulin to get a response. With ongoing insulin resistance and high blood sugars, the insulin-producing beta cells wear out, causing or worsening type 2 diabetes. Epinephrine, along with norepinephrine, also impacts the cardiovascular system to make sure the body’s muscles have enough oxygen. Epinephrine causes the heart to beat harder and faster, while norepinephrine increases blood pressure by constricting the smaller blood vessels in the body. This increases the work that your heart has to do, and over time, can cause hypertension, heart dysrhythmias, and heart attack from the increased cardiac workload.

Tumor (biologic) markers are substances produced by both benign and malignant cells that are found either in or on the tumor cells or in the blood, spinal fluid, or urine. Tumor markers may include hormones, enzymes, genes, antigens, and antibodies. The function of tumor cell markers is to help screen individuals at high risk for cancer. 2. Is the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) an ideal tumor cell marker? Why or why not? No because there are cancer-prostate patients with normal PSA concentrations in serum and patients with BPH with elevated PSA concentrations. 3. Are there breast cancer tumor markers? There are three tumor markers: cancer antigen 15-3 (CA15-3), cancer antigen 27.29 (CA27.29), and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) used to help monitor metastatic breast cancer (advanced breast CA) but they have not been found to be useful to find a breast cancer recurrence or to help lengthen lives in patients who had early stage breast cancer and who are now disease free. 4. What do you think is an ideal tumor cell marker? An ideal tumor cell marker would be highly sensitive, specific, reliable with high prognostic value, organ specificity and should correlate with tumor stages.

Aplastic anemia A Thought Questions 1. A physician informs a 48-year-old male smoker that he consistently has a hematocrit of 56%. Why might his hematocrit always 4% to 5% higher than normal values? The patient has secondary absolute polycythemia. Given the choice, hemoglobin prefers carbon monoxide over oxygen. As the patient smokes, the binding sites for oxygen are taken up by carbon monoxide. Because of the decreased oxygen-carrying capacity, the patient becomes hypoxic. The hypoxia is detected by the kidneys, erythropoietin is released, and more red cells are made to compensate for the lack of oxygen. The patient is now at risk for thrombus and embolus formation, heart failure, coronary artery disease, etc. 2. What are the pathophysiologic mechanisms in drug-induced hemolytic anemia? The causes of drug-induced hemolytic anemia can be divided into two categories, immune or metabolic. Those in the first category may operate much like the process that leads to immune-mediated agranulocytosis, or they can suppress regulator cells, which can lead to the production of autoantibodies. The second category involves the induction of hemolysis by metabolic abnormalities in the RBCs. Patients with drug-induced hemolytic anemia can present with signs of intravascular or extravascular hemolysis 3. Compare and contrast microcytic-hypochromic anemias with macrocytic-normochromic anemias. Microcytic anemia, the erythrocytes are smaller than normal. In a macrocytic anemia, the larger red cells are always associated with insufficient numbers of cells and often also insufficient hemoglobin content per cell Chapter 30 Alterations of Leukocyte, Lymphoid, and Hemostatic Function Multiple Choice Identify the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question. 1.

Example of hypercoagulation state: Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is the development of a low platelet count due to the administration of various forms of heparin. HIT predisposes to thrombosis because platelets release microparticles that activate thrombin, thereby leading to thrombosis. When thrombosis is identified the condition is called heparin-induced. HIT is a clotting disorder. After heparin is administered to a patient, an immune complex can form between heparin and a specific blood factor, known as platelet factor 4, or “PF4”, that is released by platelets. The body views this “heparin-PF4” complex as a foreign substance, and forms an antibody against the heparin-PF4 complex. The antibody binds to the complex and the platelets are destroyed. This disruption of platelets can lead to the formation of new blood clots in patients with immune-mediated HIT. The results can be DVT, PE, or even a heart attack or stroke. Example of hypcoagulation state: Hemophilia A is a rare disorder in which the blood does not clot normally. It is usually inherited. People with hemophilia have insufficient amounts or a defective factor VIII-clotting factor. Clotting factor is a protein needed for normal blood clotting. Provide an example of an hypercoagulation state and an hypocoagulation state, and identify what portion (or portions) of the coagulation cascade is/are affected in each state you provide.

Should she be concerned? If so, explain why. The first Rh-incompatible pregnancy usually presents no difficulties because very few fetal erythrocytes cross the placental barrier during gestation. If blood does mix from a Rh-negative mother and Rh-positive baby, the mother produces anti-Rh antibodies. The antibody stays in the mothers bloodstream for a very long time and if she was pregnant from another Rh-positive baby, the antibodies can enter the fetus’s bloodstream and destroy the erythrocytes.
