    1. 1. Mechanisms of Cell Injury

There are two Patterns Of Cell death Features Necrosis ApoptosisCell Size (Enlarged(swelling (Reduced(shrinkageNucleus Pyknotic  Karyorrhexis Fragmentation into nucleosome size  Karyolysis fragmentsPlasma Disrupted Intact; altered structure, especiallyMembrane orientation of lipidsCellular Enzymatic digestion; may Intact; may be released in apoptoticContent leak out of cell bodiesAdjacent Frequent NoinflammationPhysiologic Often physiologic, means ofand Pathologic eliminating unwanted cells; may berole Invariably pathologic pathologic after some forms of cell injury, especially DNA damage

Most common cause of hypoxiaEx: Atherosclerosis in coronary arteries due to. deposition of lipid in intima of blood vesselsHypoxemia: decrease in the amount of oxygen dissolved in: plasma.

Causes of cellular injuryPhysical agents: mechanical trauma, burns, frostbite,( 2sudden changes in pressure, radiations, electric shockChemical agents: poisons (toxins), insecticides, CO,( 3asbestos, alcohol, tobacco, glucose, salt, oxygenInfectious agents: Viruses , rickettsiae, bacteria, fungi,( 4parasitesImmunologic reactions: anaphylaxis, autoimmune( 5.diseaseNutritional imbalances: protein calorie deficiency, vitamin( 6(deficiencies, excess food intake (obesity, atherosclerosisGenetic derangements: congenital malformations,( 7abnormal proteins (hemoglobinopathies), abnormal or absent(.enzymes (storage disorders
    6. 6. :By Depletion of ATP( 1Mechanisms of Cell Injurya( The activity of the plasma membrane energy- dependent sodium pump (Na+,K+-ATPase( is reduced. diminished ATP concentration and enhanced ATPase activity, causes sodium to accumulate intracellular and potassium to diffuse out of the cell. isosmotic gain of water, cause cell swelling, & dilation of the endoplasmic reticulum b( oxidative phosphorylation ceases and cells rely on glycolysis for energy glycogen stores are rapidly depleted. accumulation of lactic acid and inorganic phosphates from the hydrolysis of phosphate esters.

INFLUX OF INTRACELLULAR CALCIUM( 3 AND LOSS OF CALCIUM HOMEOSTASIS The enzymes known to be activated by calcium include a) ATPases (thereby hastening ATP (, depletion b) phospholipases (which cause membrane (, damage c) proteases (which break down both membrane and cytoskeletal proteins(, and d) endonucleases (which are responsible for DNA and chromatin (fragmentation

During normal respiration, molecular oxygen is sequentially.reduced by the addition of four electrons to generate waterReactive Oxygen Species : toxic intermediates are produced; these include**superoxide anion radical (O2-(, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2(, and hydroxyl ions.

    12. 12. Mitochondrial dysfunction*Loss of membrane phospholipids *Plasma membrane damage results in loss ofosmotic balance and influx of fluids and ions,as well as loss of proteins, enzymes,coenzymes, and ribonucleic acids. The cellsmay also leak metabolites, which are vital forthe reconstitution of ATP, thus furtherdepleting net intracellular high-energy. phosphatesInjury to lysosomal membranes results in*leakage of their enzymes into the cytoplasmand activation of these enzymes. Lysosomescontain RNases, DNases, proteases,phosphatases, glucosidases, andcathepsins. Activation of these enzymesleads to enzymatic digestion of cellcomponents, resulting in loss ofribonucleoprotein, deoxyribonucleoprotein,, and glycogen.and the cells die by necrosisCytoskeletal abnormalities*
