What proteins make up tight junctions?
claudins and occludins
What is another name for tight junction?
What is the function of the tight junction?
prevents paracellular movement of solutes
Are tight junctions located near the apical or BL surface of the epithelial cell junction?
What is another name for adherents junction?
What kind of junction is just below the tight junction in the epithelial junction?
What is the function of the adherents junction?
forms a "belt" connecting actin cytoskeletons of adjacent cells with CADherens (Ca2+ dependent adhesion proteins)
Loss of which proteins in the inter epithelial junction promotes metastasis?
What is another name for a desmosome?
What is the function of desmosomes?
structural support via keratin interactions.
What disease is caused by autoantibodies against desmosomes?
What proteins make up gap junctions?
What do gap junctions do?
permit electrical and chemical communication b/w cells
What connects keratin in basal cells to underlying basement membrane?
What condition is caused by autoantibodies against hemidesmosomes?
"hemidesmosomes are down "bullow"
What are membrane proteins that maintain the integrity of the BL membrane by binding to collagen and laminin in the BM?
What test is used to assess ACL injury?
anterior drawer sign
What test is used to assess PCL injury?
posterior drawer sign
Would you apply valgus stress or varus stress to assess an MCL injury?
Would you apply valgus stress or varus stress to assess an LCL injury?
What is the McMurray test?
rotation of the knee to assess meniscal tears
Pain on external rotation of the knee indicates injury to which meniscus?
Pain on internal rotation of the knee indicates injury to which meniscus?
What is the unhappy triad?
a common injury in contact sports due to the lateral force applied to a planted leg; classically damage to ACL, MCL, and medial meniscus (attached to MCL); note that lateral meniscus injury is more common
Do "anterior" and "posterior" in ACL and PCL refer to sites of tibial or femur attachment?
Is the fibula medial or lateral at the knee joint?
What is an important bony landmark for pudendal nerve block (e.g. to relieve pain of delivery)?
