10

Q 5. In what disease can calcitonin elevated?

medullary thyroid cancer

11

Q 5. In what circumstance can myeloperoxidase elevated?

MPO is in neutrophil (this enzyme is used during respiratory burst). Thus infection or inflammation

12

Q 6. Describe how degranulation of mast cell occurs

antigen bound IgE attached on mast cell surface

-> antigen-IgE AGGREGATES, grouped together and cross-links

13

Q 7. Naloxone has antagonistic effect on which opioid receptor?

u (mu),
this receptor is the target for majority of opioid

14

Q 7. Describe effect of opioid binding in each receptor
- u
- k
- delta:

- u (mu): CNS, respiratory depression, constipation

- k (kappa): miosis

- d (delta): anti-depressent effect

15

Q 8. Three stop codon sequences?

우아, 우악, 우가
UAA, UAC, UGA

16

Q 8. What is nature of mutation in Duchenne? Which gene? What kind of mutation? What about Becker?

- Duchenne: frameshift or nonsense mutation on dystrophin -> truncated

- Becker: non-frameshifting insertion on dystrophin -> partial function impairment

17

Q 8. non-sense mutation vs. missense mutation

- non-sense: STOP codon

- missense: different amino acid

18

Q 11. What is narcolepsy? What is molecular marker for narcolepsy? how its level changed in CSF analysis? where is it produced?

- excessive drowsiness during day, suddenly falling into sleep

- Hypocretin-1

- lateral hypothalamus

19

Q 11. What molecular marker can be used for diagnosis of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease?

14-3-3 protein in CSF

20

Q 14. Function of ANP (atrial natriuretic peptide) in
- renal vasculature
- systemic vasculature
- adrenal gland

- renal vasculature: afferent arteriole dilation-> increase GFR

- systemic vasculature: vasodilation

- adrenal gland: inhibit aldo synthesis

21

Q 15. Where is enteropeptidase located? what is its function?

- intestinal brush border

convert chymotrypsin -> trypsin
Trypsin then cuts other zymogens

22

Q 16. Eye opening vs. Eye closing
- which muscle?
- what cranial nerve?

- eye opening
: CN3, levator palpebrae

-eye closing
: CN7, orbicularis oculi

23

Q 16. Inward deviation of eye is due to defect in what cranial nerve?

CN6 (abducens)
lateral rectus is impaired

24

Q 16. List four phenotypes of CN3 palsy. mechanism of each abnormality?

- ptosis (eye drooping): levator palpebrae

- down-out eye: ocular muscles except SO, LR

- impaired accomodation: parasympathetic- ciliary muscle

- mydriasis: parasympathetic- sphincter

25

Q 17. Describe failure in what embryological stage leads to cleft lip

failure of fusion of medial nasal process (which will become intermaxillary segment) with maxillary process

26

Q 18. What is foam cells in development of artherosclerosis? What is gross appearance?

lipid laiden macrophages
raised yellow spots within artery wall

27

Q 20. What is the most common case for sudden cardiac death from MI?

V fib

28

Q 21. Anatomy: which arteries supply ureter
- proximal ureter (1)
- distal ureter (3)

- proximal: renal artery

- distal: external iliac, internal iliac, vescial artery

29

Q 22. Which bacteria synthesizes dextrans from sucrose? How is this related to pathogenesis?

Strep virdians

Dextrans attach to fibrin-platelet aggregate, housing on valve and cause valvular disease
