Breakdown of cell transport mckenna h

  1. 1. Breakdown of Cell Transport<br />MckennaHotopp<br />
  2. 2. What is Cell Transport?<br />Two Types: Active or Passive<br />Active: The movement of molecules from a crowded to less crowded area to maintain homeostasis with the use of energy. <br />Passive: Movement of molecules from crowed to less crowded without using energy. Two types- diffusion and osmosis. <br />
  3. 3. Cell Transport<br />
  4. 4. Two Diseases caused by breakdown of Cell Transport.<br />1.) Alzheimer’s Disease: Disease that destroys brain cells and causes memory loss.<br />2.) Anemia's(or anemia's) are diseases characterized by low oxygen transport capacity of the blood, because of low red cell count or some abnormality of the red blood cells or the hemoglobin. <br />
  5. 5. Why Alzheimer’s?<br />Several proteins are involved in trafficking cargo in the nerve cell.<br />When something goes wrong with the transport, the cell sends out a distress signal indicating cell death.<br />APP maybe involved signaling process that leads to cell death when nerve cells are damaged.<br />The damaging of cells or death of cells is why this disease causes memory loss.<br />
  6. 6. Anemias<br />Is a decreased normal number of red blood cells or less than the normal quantity of hemoglobin.<br />Can include decreased oxygen-binding ability of each hemoglobin molecule.<br />The lack of hemoglobin causes hypoxia in the body because not enough oxygen is transported through the body.<br />Symptoms of this disease : weakness, fatigue, general malaise, poor concentration, and dyspnea.<br />
