particulate matter (frequently of foreign origin) by a cell. Phagocytosis usually involves cell-surface receptors. It is characteristic of cells—particularly macrophages—that degrade proteins and cellular debris and involves the following sequence of events: (1) A macrophage binds, via its Fc receptors, to an antibody-coated [immunoglobulin G (IgG)-coated] bacterium, or via its C3b receptors to a complement-coated bacterium. (2) Binding progresses until the plasma membrane completely envelops the

times, leading to extensive overlay of thick and thin filaments, which shortens the sarcomere and consequently the entire skeletal muscle fiber. ADP = adenosine diphosphate; ATP = adenosine triphosphate. (Adapted with permission from Alberts B, Bray D, Lewis J, et al: Molecular Biology of the Cell, 3rd ed. New York, Garland Publishing, 1994, p 852.) b. T tubules convey the wave of depolarization to the myofibrils. Voltage-sensitive dihydropyridine (DHP) receptors alter their conformation as a

pathway of coagulation. a. Most cases are mild and do not involve bleeding into the joints. b. Severe cases are characterized by excessive and/or spontaneous bleeding from mucous membranes and wounds. Review Test Directions: Each of the numbered items or incomplete statements in this section is followed by answers or by completions of the statement. Select the ONE lettered answer or completion that is BEST in each case. 1. Which of the following proteins associated with the erythrocyte plasma

consists of dense irregular collagenous connective tissue, which sends trabeculae into the substance of the spleen to form a supportive framework. The spleen possesses a hilum. b. The spleen differs from the thymus and lymph nodes in that it lacks a cortex and medulla. It additionally differs from lymph nodes by the absence of afferent lymphatics. c. It is divided into red pulp and white pulp; the latter contains lymphoid elements. These two regions are separated from each other by the marginal

Figure 13.1) a. The primary capillary plexus consists of fenestrated capillaries coming off the superior hypophyseal arteries. (1) This plexus is located in the median eminence where stored hypothalamic neurosecretory hormones enter the blood. (2) It is drained by hypophyseal portal veins, which descend through the infundibulum into the adenohypophysis. b. The secondary capillary plexus consists of fenestrated capillaries coming off the hypophyseal portal veins. This plexus is located in the pars
