Biology is designed for multi-semester biology courses for science majors. It is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand. To meet the needs of today’s instructors and students, some content has been strategically condensed while maintaining the overall scope and coverage of traditional texts for this course. Instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom. Biology also includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand—and apply—key concepts.

Diabetes - A Global Challenge - Physiological Regulation of Blood Glucose Part 2 (16:52)
Rating

This presentation provides an introduction to the islet hormones effects on various target tissues. Insulin is such a hormone, and in continuation of this, we’ll talk about the insulin receptor signaling. Furthermore we’ll talk about liver cells, fat cells, Lipogenesis, Insulin dose-response curves, C-peptide, Glucagon and glucagon producing tumor.

Diabetes - A Global Challenge - Physiological Regulation of Blood Glucose Part 3 (09:47)
Rating

This presentation focus' on glucose and insulin, and how these are integrated in the intact organism, in continuation of this we’ll talk about, insulin and glucagon secretion, hepatic glucose production and plasma glucose concentrations. The purpose of this is to get an understanding of what happens in the body when you have type 2 diabetes. Furthermore we’ll talk about the possibility of developing an glucagon receptor antagonist, regarding the therapy of diabetes.

This presentation discusses the possibility of finding a cure for type 1 diabetes, and hereby developing a product, that maintains a normal blood glucose level without insulin treatment. In continuation of this, we’ll provide an introduction to beta cell replacement therapy based on The Edmonton Protocol, however we’ll be focusing on relying on stem cell technology rather than that of organ donor islets. Furthermore we’ll discuss how we can combine an encapsulation strategy, so we can avoid the use of immuno-suppression.

Diabetes - The Essential Facts - What Role Does Exercise Play ? (24:17)
Rating

This presentation talks about which role exercise plays in developing diabetes. We will describe what happens in the body when we exercise, and why these changes help us prevent and treat diabetes. In continuation of this we’ll talk about the interaction between insulin, glucose and muscle cells and how we through exercise, can change our health. Furthermore we’ll discuss how lifestyle can affect one’s future children in terms of developing diabetes later on.

Diabetes - The Essential Facts - What is Diabetes ? (13:45)
Rating

This presentation provides an introduction to Diabetes.What is diabetes and what happens in the body? You will learn how diabetes is a term used to describe the body’s inability to produce sufficient amounts of insulin and how insulin as a pancreatic hormone functions as a main glucose regulator, that makes sure our glucose levels are balanced. Both high and low blood glucose levels are dangerous. When you have diabetes, the lack of insulin will cause high blood glucose levels, which affects several parts of your body.
