Draw a neat labeled diagram of T.S. of Dicot leaf.
Define the following:
a) Differentiation – the cells derived from meristems and cambium differentiated to perform specific functions is known as differentiation.
b) De-differentiation – regaining the meristematic property in certain conditions by differentiated living tissue.
c) Re-differentiation – dedifferentiated tissue once again loose capacity to divide but mature to perform specific functions is known as Redifferentiation.
Give a brief account on respiratory disorders.
Asthma – it is characterized by difficulty in breathing, causing wheezing due to inflammation of bronchi and bronchioles.
Emphysema- is a chronic disorder in which alveolar walls are damaged due to which respiratory surface is decreased.
Occupation respiratory disorders – long exposure to dust working in grinding or stone-breaking industries give rise to inflammation leading to fibrosis results in serious lung damage.
Explain the mechanism of blood clotting.
- A clot or coagulation formed mainly of a network of threads called fibrins in which dead and damaged formed elements of blood are trapped.
- Fibrins are formed by the conversion of inactive fibrinogens in the plasma by the enzyme thrombin.
- Thrombin, in turn is formed from another inactive substance present in the plasma called prothrombin.
- An injury or a trauma stimulates the platelets in the blood to release certain factors which activate the mechanism of coagulation.
- Certain factors released by the tissues at the site of injury also can initiate coagulation.
- Calcium ions play a very important role in clotting.
Explain the process of ultra filtration.
- The first step in urine formation is the filtration of blood, which is carried out by the glomerulus and is called glomerular filtration.
- On an average, 1100 – 1200 ml of blood is filtered by the kidneys per minute.
- The glomerular capillary blood pressure causes filtration of blood through 3 layers.
- The epithelial cells of Bowman’s capsule called podocytes are arranged in an intricate manner so as to leave some minute spaces called filtration slits.
- Blood is filtered so finely through these membranes onto the lumen of the Bowman’s capsule. Therefore, it is considered as a process of ultra filtration.
Mention three types of cellular movements in human body with an example.
- Amoeboid movement: Macrophages, leucocytes and Cytoskeletal elements.
- Ciliary movement: Inner wall of trachea, female reproductive tract.
- Muscular movement: Limbs, jaws, tongue.
