Advances in Physiology


1. Gastroileal reflex

The gastroileal reflex increase in the opening and in ileal motility of the ileocecal orifice when the food gets into the empty stomach. When the food gets into the stomach gastric hormone and the chyme reaches the valve. Gastric enables the valve to relax. Each intake of a meal makes it possible for the gastroileal reflex to open the valve for let chyme pass through it.


Law of the intestine

The law of the intestine according to Baylis and Starling (1899, 1900) is the presence of polarized reflexes in the gastrointestinal tract. The small canine intestines enabled a relaxation in the smooth muscles   found at the anal to the stimulate site. But this contraction is evoked orally. This law is the basis of understanding peristaltic reflex.


Conversion of trypsinogen to trypsin

Trypsinogen in human’s juices only requires the addition of calcium in small amounts which will assist in the conversion of Trypsinogen into trypsin. This conversion depends upon the digestion of the trypsin consequent and moiety.


Response of the internal and external sphincters to rectal filling.

The internal and external anal sphincters respond to rectal distention when patients and subjects in normal condition suffer from idiopathic feacal inconsistence


Cephalic phase of pancreatic secretion

Not much is known about the Cephalic phase of pancreatic secretion in human beings this is because in man the pancreatic fistula is not justine-basancon or villare nor is its Siclair because these are the aspects which stimulate the secretion of pancreatic juice when a persons sees an appetizing food.



What is the controlled or output variable?

The study is performed to demonstrate the relationship between the production of   the process of fermentation and on structured amino acid while feeding. The control measure in this experiment is the avoidance of feeding in order to measure the Green Florescent protein titer


What is the sensor?

The senor is the level of GFP which will show a percentage yield while feeing in relation to the amino acid and series carried out in the same culture condition.


What is the perturbation?

There is improved yield of the required product when the bioreactors of the strategic controlled feeding are done by the uses of intelligent logarithms and real time feedback. The level of increase by approximately 33% through the feeding on an amino acid Known as the serine which is an essential part of   the e.coli strain.


3. Diffusion

The cell membranes are usually traversed by certain molecules in higher rates from the simple. An example is the glucose which cannot the lipid bilayers in a rapid manner but it crosses the red blood cells in a very fast or rapid manner. The erythrocytes which are starved take up glucose in a very rapid manner. The presence of other sugars reduces the intake of glucose into the cell. Facilitated   transportation mechanism is presents in all the cell membranes. the main characteristics of the facilitated transport mechanism are the substrate specificity, the integral membranes protening which are spanning, the   substrate analogues inhabitation, rate of saturation transport and an alternate re-orientation which is side topside of the substrate and to associate with the binding site. The important feature of the facilitated diffusion is that during the mechanism, the carrier protein is not altered in the process of transportation. Thermal energy is only required. This is seen in the diagram where the Na+ assists the glucose in diffusions across the cell.


The active transporters are meant to be immediately carried in the transportation proves which involves the consumption of chemical energy such as the ATP hydrolysis which enables the immediate translocation of substrates via the membranes. Active diffusion also refers to the transfer of charged substrates against the combination of chemical and electrical driving forces this means the concentration difference. Active diffusions are work which requires the use of energy from the ion and ATP concentration gradation.

Active diffusions can easily be inhibited through compounding or any process which hinders metabolism. The primary active diffusion involves the use of ATP to move substrates against the high concentration gradient, secondary active transportation on the other hand is the type of transport which does not directly move against concentration gradient to the ATP hydrolysis but instead only requires free energy of the Na+ ion or any other whose gradient of electrochemical had already been established by the active transport.


Simple diffusion is worked against by active transportation. Simple diffusion is downhill and requires no energy. It is characterized by a non –saturating rate of transport in a linear way seen in the figure below.


The saturate kinetics indicates that there is certain number of molecules of transportation which helps in carrying substrates across the cells membranes.Cystic fibrosis and the wide-ranging and serious complications


People who suffer from cystic fibrosis, a condition which thicken the body mucus  and make it stick suffer from a wide range of serious complications affecting most body organs especially the pancreas and the lungs. Such individuals suffer from lung disease and have breathing problems. Other problems include digestion problems, nutritional problems   and development and growth problems. Because cystic fibrosis has no cure the condition grows to become worse over time.


The main cause of cystic fibrosis is the inheritance of a gene by both parents called the cystic fibrosis transmembrane gene and codes with cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator (CFTR) protein. The cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator (CFTR) causes a major problem in the movement of salt and water in the body i.e. in and out of the body cells thus leading to the thickening of the mucus. The sticky and thick mucus makes it hard   for most of the body parts like the lungs and to be healthy and clean.


Lung function

The upper or lower part of the lung contribute more oxygen to the blood                                    while in rest, the central part of the respiratory sends the action which travels along nerves known as phrenic nerves to the external intercostals muscles and the diagram all located within the rib cage causing one to inhale relaxed exhalation takes place between the impulses when there is a relaxation of the muscles.
