Presentation Transcript

  1. Blood Glucose • You have one minute to write down everything you can know about glucose and it’s uses

  2. Blood glucose • Glucose test

  3. Blood glucose control • Blood glucose is controlled by hormones. • Hormones are: • Always produced by glands and secreted directly into the blood • Carried in the blood plasma to the cells on which they act which have receptors complementary to the hormone • Have widespread and long lasting effects

  4. Blood Glucose Control • Pancreas is a large pale coloured gland • It produces enzymes (protease, lipase and amylase) • And Hormones (insulin and glucagon)

  5. Blood Glucose Control • Most of the pancreas makes enzymes for digestion but scattered throughout these cells are hormone producing cells – islets of Langerhans

  6. Blood glucose control • You DON’T need to know about DELTA cells (somatostatin, growth-hormone-inhibiting hormone)

  7. Blood Glucose Control • Normal blood glucose is 90mg per 100cm3 of blood • Where does blood glucose come from?

  8. Blood Glucose control • Directly from the diet • Break down of glycogen – GLYCOGENOLYSIS • GLUCONEOGENESIS – making glucose from sources other than carbohydrates, the liver can make glucose from glycerol and amino acids

  9. Blood glucose control • To do…BLIND SEQUENCING • Tallest person is dealer • When you get your cards write your initials on the back of your card – don’t show them to anyone else! • In your groups of three number yourselves 1,2 or 3 • Number…go first. • Read what is on your card then put it face down on the table • Move clockwise around the group • Your task is to produce a feedback loop for blood glucose regulation WITHOUT looking at anyones cards but your own.

  10. Blood Glucose Control • β cells detect a rise in blood glucose • β cells secrete insulin directly into the blood plasma • Insulin is a globular protein made up of 51 amino acids • Almost all body cells have glycoprotein receptors on their cell surface membrane that bind with insulin molecules

  11. Blood glucose control • When insulin combines with the receptors, insulin brings about: • A change in the tertiary structure of glucose transport protein channels, causing them to change shape and open, allowing more glucose into the cells • An increase in the number of carrier molecules in the cell surface membrane • Activation of the enzymes that convert glucose to glycogen and fat

  12. Blood Glucose Control • α cells of the islets of Langerhans detect a fall in blood glucose concentration • Α cells secrete glucagon directly into the blood plasma • Glucagon travels in the blood to receptors in the liver cells

  13. Blood glucose control • Glucagon causes liver cells to: • Activate an enzyme that converts glycogen to glucose • Increases the conversion of amino acids and glycerol to glucose (gluconeogensis) • The amount of glucose in the blood returns to normal

  14. Blood Glucose Control • Glucagon is not the only hormone that stimulates the break down of glycogen in the liver • Adrenaline also has an affect and it does this using the second messenger system (glucagon also uses this system!)

  15. Second messenger model • Hormone (Adrenaline) is the 1st messenger – it binds to receptors on the cell-surface membrane of target cells (Liver) to form a hormone-receptor complex • The hormone receptor complex activates an enzyme inside of the plasma membrane • This enzyme acts on ATP • The enzyme produces cyclic AMP (removing two of the phosphate groups) cAMP • cAMP is the second messenger and activates other enzymes that carry out the breakdown of glycogen to glucose • Draw a series of diagrams to summarise this

  16. Summary time • Draw a cartoon (with characters and everything) to show how blood glucose levels are regulated

  17. Blood Glucose control • What can you remember from yesterdays lesson? • Draw a five minute poster to summarise it!

  18. Diabetes • What can you remember about diabetes – write it on your post it note and stick it on the board. • Diabetes

  19. diabetes • Diabetes is a condition where the homeostatic control of blood glucose breaks down • 2 million people in the UK suffer from diabetes and the numbers are growing – why?

  20. diabetes • Home and Away • In your pair you have been given either TYPE I or TYPE II diabetes • Your job is to read through the information and SUMMARISE it for your partner.

  21. Type I vs II diabetes • Draw a venn diagram to compare the different types of diabetes.

  22. Diabetes • Blood glucose tests – lets test some different samples and see if you can spot: • The normal person • The person with Diabetes • The person with kidney disease • The person who is dehydrated.
