MSN570 Week 1 Case Studies
A 72 year old male presents with a reduced ejection fraction, D/T left ventricular hypertrophy.
What is the most likely cause of left ventricular hypertrophy?
How does this type of cellular adaptation relate to the inability of heart muscle cells to undergo division?
Briefly explain how cellular adaptation provides an “advantage” to the heart muscle; and, explain how cellular adaptation may ultimately contribute to heart “failure” if the underlying stress is not reversed.
Describe cellular adaptations that occur during atrophy, hypertrophy, hyperplasia, dysplasia and metaplasia and identify conditions when each can occur.
A 2 two year old male presents with a retinal tumor and ultimately Retinoblastoma.
What is retinoblastoma, and what is the pattern of inheritance for this type of cancer?
What type of gene is the retinoblastoma gene, and how does mutation in this gene give rise to cancer? Be sure to indicate the consequences of mutating one or both of the alleles for this gene.
What is the difference between a germline and a somatic mutation?
What is the normal function of the pRB protein with regard to cell cycle regulation?
An 18 year old male presents with ADHD, small testes and learning disabilities. After a workup it is determined that he has a kerotype 47 XXY.
Discuss meiosis and mitosis.
Are the concepts of diffusion, active transport or osmosis implicated in various genetic conditions? If so, how? If not, explain.
Can genetics conditions be reversed, why ore why not?
A 15 year old male presents after ingesting windshield wiper fluid to get high. Explain what will happen to the following:
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
