Current Research On Muscular Dystrophy
576 wordsDuchenne's muscular dystrophy is the result of a defective gene on the X chromosome. This gene is responsible for production of the muscle protein dystrophic. Dystrophin is an integral part of the dystrophic-glycoprotein complex which bears the brunt of the force generated during muscular contraction. When dystrophic is not produced, the dystrophic-glycoprotein complex (DCG) is not present. Absence of the DCG leads to tears in the muscle membrane because the muscle membrane bears the force of mu...

Coronary Artery Disease Beats Per Minute
2,046 wordsThe Normal Cardiac Cycle During each heartbeat, the two upper chambers (right and left atria) contract, followed by contraction of the two lower pumping chambers (right and left ventricles). This action is coordinated by the hearts electrical system. Normal electrical activation of the heart occurs in an orderly fashion. With each beat, the electrical impulse starts in the sinus (or sino atrial) node (in the right atrium). The impulse spreads through the atria, stimulating the atria to contract....
