Chemistry Comes Alive; Part 1: Basic Chemistry.
2.1. Matter is the Stuff of the Universe and Energy Moves Matter2.2. The Properties of an Element Depend on the Structure of its Atoms; 2.3. Atoms Bound Together Form Molecules; Different Molecules can make Mixtures; 2.4. The Three Types of Chemical Bonds are Ionic, Covalent, and Hydrogen; 2.5. Chemical Reactions Occur when Electrons are Shared, Gained, or Lost; Part 2: Biochemistry; 2.6. Inorganic Compounds Include Water, Salts, and Many Acids and Bases; 2.7. Organic Compounds are made by Dehydration Synthesis and Broken Down by Hydrolysis.
2.8. Carbohydrates Provide an Easily used Energy Source for the Body2.9. Lipids Insulate Body Organs, Build Cell Membranes, and Provide Stored Energy; 2.10. Proteins are the Body's Basic Structural Material and have Many Vital Functions; 2.11. DNA and RNA Store, Transmit, and Help Express Genetic Information; 2.12. ATP Transfers Energy to Other Compounds; 3. Cells: The Living Units; 3.1. Cells are the Smallest Unit of Life; Part 1: Plasma Membrane; 3.2. The Fluid Mosaic Model Depicts the Plasma Membrane as a Double Layer of Phospholipids with Embedded Proteins.
3.3. Passive Membrane Transport is Diffusion of Molecules Down their Concentration Gradient 3.4. Active Membrane Transport Directly or Indirectly Uses ATP; Focus Figure 3.1: Primary Active Transport: The Na+-K+ Pump; 3.5. Selective Diffusion Establishes the Membrane Potential; 3.6. Cell Adhesion Molecules and Membrane Receptors Allow the Cell to Interact with its Environment; Focus Figure 3.2: G Proteins; Part 2: The Cytoplasm; 3.7. Cytoplasmic Organelles Each Perform a Specialized Task; 3.8. Cilia and Microvilli are Two Main Types of Cellular Extensions; Part 3: Nucleus.
3.9. The Nucleus includes the Nuclear Envelope, the Nucleolus, and Chromatin3.10. The Cell Cycle Consists of Interphase and a Mitotic Phase; 3.11. Messenger RNA Carries Instructions from DNA for Building Proteins; Focus Figure 3.3: Mitosis; Focus Figure 3.4: Translation; 3.12. Apoptosis Disposes of Unneeded Cells; Autophagy and Proteasomes Dispose of Unneeded Organelles and Proteins; Developmental Aspects of Cells; 4. Tissue: The Living Fabric ; 4.1. Tissue Samples are Fixed, Sliced, and Stained for Microscopy; 4.2. Epithelial Tissue Covers Body Surfaces, Lines Cavities, and Forms Glands.
Summary: Setting the Standard for Innovation in A & P Human Anatomy & Physiology has launched the careers of more than three million healthcare professionals. With the newly revised Tenth Edition, Marieb and Hoehn introduce a clear pathway through A & P that helps students and instructors focus on key concepts and make meaningful connections. Each chapter opens with a visual "Chapter Roadmap" that guides students through the material and shows how concepts are related within and across chapters. The new modular organization makes key concepts more readily apparent and understandable to students, and new.
