The primary agent of contact metamorphism is ?

800px Dinitrogen trioxide 2D geometry

A. flowing water
B. heat
C. extreme pressure
D. weathering

Answer :

(B) Heat. Pressure is the one that affects regional metamorphism. Water and weathering have nothing to do with either one.

Rocks that are in contact with hot magma or lava can and often do become metamorphosed through contact metamorphism — direct contact with the magma or lava.
It can either happen deep underground or on the surface. Underground, hot magma fills areas within the crust. These are called batholiths. The hot magma alters the surrounding rocks. The amount of rock that is changed depends on how much magma there is available to produce heat. The zone of altered rock around a batholith is called an “aureole.” The aureole can cover more than 100 square kilometers of land. On the surface, lava erupting from a volcano alters the rock that it erupts onto. This is obviously a much, much smaller contact metamorphism, but it is still contact metamorphism.

Sickle cell turbidity test ?

Answer :

SCREENING for >6 months of age
Sickle Cell Anemia: Labs/Diagnostics – Sicklidex

Sickledex is a test for the abnormal hemoglobin which causes sickle cell anemia. The test is performed to detect both sickle cell disease and sickle cell trait. Sickle cell anemia results from the hereditary presence of abnormal Hgb S in place of Hgb A. When Hgb S becomes deoxygenated (loses oxygen), it tends to form polymers that deform the red blood cells (RBCs) into a sickle shape. Sickled RBCs cannot pass freely through capillaries and cause blockage of small vessels. This can compromise the blood supply to various organs. Hgb S trait is found in 8 to 10% of the black population. The routine peripheral blood smear does not contain sickled red blood cells unless hypoxemia (inadequate levels of oxygen in the blood) or a precipitating factor (such as a red blood cell poison or drug) is present. In the Sickledex test a deoxygenating agent is added; if 25% or more of the Hgb is Hgb S, the cells will sickle. Another test that can be performed is hemoglobin electrophoresis. This test separates different types of hemoglobin based on electrical charge. Hgb S can be differentiated from Hgb A and other types of Hgb.

In performing the sickledex test among adults or children, blood is drawn from a vein usually from the inside of the elbow or the back of the hand. The puncture site is cleaned with antiseptic, and a tourniquet (an elastic band) or blood pressure cuff is placed around the upper arm to apply pressure and restrict blood flow through the vein. This causes veins below the tourniquet to distend (fill with blood). A needle is inserted into the vein, and the blood is collected in an air-tight vial or a syringe. During the procedure, the tourniquet is removed to restore circulation. Once the blood has been collected, the needle is removed, and the puncture site is covered to stop any bleeding. In performing the sickledex test among infants or young children, the area is cleansed with antiseptic and punctured with a sharp needle or a lancet. The blood may be collected in a pipette (small glass tube), on a slide, onto a test strip, or into a small container. Cotton or a bandage may be applied to the puncture site if there is any continued bleeding.

D) Ptolemy.

Multifactorial transmission definition ?

Answer :
A polygene, multiple factor, multiple gene inheritance or quantitative gene is a member of a group of non-epistatic genes that interact additively to influence a phenotypic trait. The term “polygene” is usually used to refer to a hypothetical gene as it is often difficult to characterise the effect of an individual gene from the effects of other genes and the environment on a particular phenotype. Advances in statistical methodology and high throughput sequencing are, however, allowing researchers to locate candidate genes for the trait. In the case that such a gene is identified, it is referred to as a quantitative trait locus (QTL). These genes are generally pleiotropic as well. The genes that contribute to type 2 diabetes are thought to be mostly polygenes. In July 2016, scientists reported identifying a set of 355 genes from the last universal common ancestor (LUCA) of all organisms living on Earth.
Traits with polygenic determinism correspond to the classical quantitative characters, as opposed to the qualitative characters with monogenic or oligogenic determinism. In essence instead of two options, such as freckles or no freckles, there are many variations. Like the color of skin, hair, or even eyes.

Difference between neuron and nephron ?

Answer :

(i) Nephron is the unit of excretory system (kidneys) whereas neuron is the functional unit of nervous system.
(ii) The neuron is only a single cell whereas the nephron a made up of many many cells of different types.

What type of ion might sodium form ?

Answer :

Type of ion sodium form is a cation. Sodium is a chemical element with symbol Na (from Latin natrium) and atomic number 11. It is a soft, silvery-white, highly reactive metal. Sodium is an alkali metal, being in group 1 of the periodic table, because it has a single electron in its outer shell that it readily donates, creating a positively charged atom—the Na+ cation. Its only stable isotope is 23Na.

Sodium atoms have 11 electrons, one more than the extremely stable configuration of the noble gas neon. Because of this and its low first ionization energy of 495.8 kJ/mol, the sodium atom is much more likely to lose the last electron and acquire a positive charge than to gain one and acquire a negative charge. This process requires so little energy that sodium is readily oxidized by giving up its 11th electron. In contrast, the second ionization energy is very high (4562 kJ/mol), because the 10th electron is closer to the nucleus than the 11th electron. As a result, sodium usually forms ionic compounds involving the Na+ cation.

The most common oxidation state for sodium is +1. It is generally less reactive than potassium and more reactive than lithium. Sodium metal is highly reducing, with the standard reduction potential for the Na+/Na couple being −2.71 volts, though potassium and lithium have even more negative potentials.

Attaches the heart to the body cavity ?

Answer :

The answer is pericardium.

Pericardium

The pericardium is a double-walled sac containing the heart and the roots of the great vessels. The pericardial sac has two layers, a serous layer and a fibrous layer. It encloses the pericardial cavity which contains pericardial fluid.

The pericardium fixes the heart to the mediastinum, gives protection against infection, and provides the lubrication for the heart.
Anatomical relationships
Surrounds heart and bases of pulmonary artery and aorta.
Deep to sternum and anterior chest wall.
The right phrenic nerve passes to the right of the pericardium.
The left phrenic nerve passes over the pericardium of the left ventricle.
Pericardial arteries supply blood to the dorsal portion of the pericardium.

Serous membrane

In anatomy, serous membrane (or serosa) is a smooth tissue membrane consisting of two layers of mesothelium, which secrete serous fluid. The inner layer that covers organs (viscera) in body cavities is called the visceral membrane. A second layer of epithelial cells of the serous membrane, called the parietal layer, lines the body wall. Between the two layers is a potential space, mostly empty except for a few milliliters of lubricating serous fluid that is secreted by the two serous membranes.

The Latin anatomical name is tunica serosa. Serous membranes line and enclose several body cavities, known as serous cavities, where they secrete a lubricating fluid which reduces friction from muscle movement. Serosa is entirely different from the adventitia, a connective tissue layer which binds together structures rather than reducing friction between them. The serous membrane covering the heart and lining the mediastinum is referred to as the pericardium, the serous membrane lining the thoracic cavity and surrounding the lungs is referred to as the pleura, and that lining the abdominopelvic cavity and the viscera is referred to as the peritoneum.
