Sickle Cell Disease Sickle Cell Anemia
1,272 wordsSickle Cell anemia is a group of inherited red blood cell disorders, or a collection of recessive genetic disorders characterized by a hemoglobin variant called Hb S. Normal red blood cells are round like doughnuts, and they move through small blood tubes in the body to deliver oxygen. Sickle red blood cells become hard, sticky and shaped like sickles used to cut wheat. When these hard and pointed red cells go through the small blood tube, they clog the flow and break apart. This can cause pain,...

895 wordsCarbohydrate loading The glycemic index compares equal quantities of a carbohydrate containing food; the glycemic load quantifies the overall glycemic effect of a typical portion of food. This represents the product of the amount of available carbohydrate in that serving and glycemic index of the food. A high glycemic load reflects a greater expected elevation in blood glucose and a greater insulin release. An increased risk for type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease coincides with the chron...

1,301 wordsDeoxyribonucleic Acid the fingerprint of life also know as DNA was first mapped out in the early 1950 s by British biophysicist, Francis Harry Compton Crick and American biochemist James Dewey Watson. They determined the three-dimensional structure of DNA, the substance that passes on the genetic characteristics from one generation to the next. DNA is found in the chromosomes in the nucleus of a cell. Every family line has it s own unique pattern of restriction-enzyme DNA fragments. This variati...

634 wordsMitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell. Their sole responsibility is to provide energy for the cell. They do this by synthesizing a molecule known as ATP, which the cell uses as energy. Mitochondria are different from the rest of the cell organelles because they contain their own DNA outside the nucleus. Mutations in this DNA have been found to be linked to Alzheimer s and other neurodegenerative diseases. Mutations in the DNA cause the mitochondria to function in other ways than it usually...
