Leonardo da Vinci on the Human Body

"It is a miracle that anybody guy must have saw, learn, and written down lots in one lifetime. " — Kenneth Clark
Painter, sculptor, musician, scientist, architect, engineer, inventor . . . maybe no different determine so totally embodies the Western perfect of "Renaissance man" as Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo used to be no longer content material, despite the fact that, to grasp an inventive method or checklist the mechanics of a tool; he used to be pushed through an insatiable interest to appreciate why. His writings, pursuits, and musings are uniformly characterised through an incisive, probing, wondering brain. It was once with this piercing highbrow scrutiny and exact medical thoroughness that Leonardo undertook the learn of the human body.
This extraordinary quantity reproduces greater than 1,200 of Leonardo's anatomical drawings on 215 in actual fact published black-and-white plates. The drawings were prepared in chronological series to demonstrate Leonardo's improvement and progress as an anatomist. Leonardo's textual content, which accompanies the drawings — occasionally explanatory, occasionally autobiographical and anecdotal — has been translated into English via the prestigious clinical professors Drs. O'Malley and Saunders. of their interesting biographical creation, the authors evaluation Leonardo's place within the old improvement of anatomy and anatomical representation. each one plate is observed via explanatory notes and an review of the person plate and a sign of its dating to the paintings as a whole.
While impressive for his or her impressive attractiveness and precision, Leonardo's anatomical drawings have been additionally a ways just before all modern paintings and scientifically the equivalent of whatever that seemed good into the 17th century. in contrast to such a lot of his predecessors and contemporaries, Leonardo took not anything on belief and had religion basically in his personal observations and experiments. In anatomy, as in his different investigations, Leonardo's nice contrast is the actually clinical nature of his equipment. Herein then are over 1,200 of Leonardo's anatomical illustrations prepared into 8 significant components of research: Osteological procedure, Myological process, Comparative Anatomy, anxious process, respiration procedure, Alimentary procedure, Genito-Urinary approach, and Embryology.
Artists, illustrators, physicians, scholars, academics, scientists, and appreciators of Leonardo's awesome genius will locate in those 1,200 drawings the suitable union of artwork and technology. conscientiously precise and actual of their info, appealing and colourful of their method, they continue to be this day — approximately 5 centuries later — the best anatomical drawings ever made.

Plant Development

A subgroup of homeobox genes, which play a major function within the developmental tactics of a number of multicellular organisms, Hox genes were proven to play a severe position in vertebrate trend formation. Hox genes could be regarded as basic objective keep watch over genes-that is, they're related in lots of organisms and direct an analogous approaches in numerous organisms, from mouse, to fly, to human.

Fungi: Experimental Methods In Biology, Second Edition

Fungi are actually on the leading edge of analysis on mechanisms in gene silencing, organic rhythm, mating methods, biogenesis of intracellular organelles, diversifications to adverse habitats, constitution of traditional populations, and speciation. due to their small genomes, fungi are getting used in "systems biology" to appreciate the connections among genes, proteins, and metabolic and signaling pathways.

The glycerol and fatty acids derived from the breakdown of triglycerides are all sources of energy. Glycerol can serve as a substrate for the glycolytic pathway in the cytosol. Fatty acids enter the mitochondria, where they are broken down into two carbon units, which become acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl CoA). The metabolism of acetyl CoA within the mitochondria ultimately results in the production of the high-energy compound adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Details about the role of the mitochondria in the production of ATP are described in the section on organelles later in this chapter.

The hematoxylin tends to stain acidic portions of a cell dark blue or purple (these basophilic areas include the cell nucleus, which contains nucleic acids), and the eosin tends to stain the basic portions of a cell pink to red (these acidophilic areas include much of the more basic protein within the cell). Wright’s stain, used to stain blood cells (Plates I and II), stains basophilic areas blue with methylene blue and acidophilic areas red with eosin. Sections can also be treated with a variety of chemical solutions to demonstrate the presence of certain types of chemicals or the activity of enzymes in the tissue or cell, a technique called histochemistry (Fig.

The peptide linkages between amino acids in a protein are somewhat flexible, and this permits the chain to bend into various threedimensional shapes (Fig. 2-2B). These configurations may become relatively stable, because chemical attractions, or bonds, form between amino acids at various points in the chain. The three-dimensional shape of a protein is an important determinant of its biologic function, because the shape can determine what segments ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY OF THE CELL / 21 of the protein chain are exposed and available to interact with other molecules.
