Osmoregulation and Glucose Concentration (COMMUNICATION)

What is a definition of Osmoregulation?
The process to maintain correct water potentials in the body for homeostatis (controlled by Hypothalmus)
1 of 6
What happens with lack of water in tissues?
Water moves out of cells by OSMOSIS causing CREDATION. Collecting duct becomes more permeable with LESS ADH released. Metabolic reactions decrease
2 of 6
What happens with excess water in tissues?
Water moves into cells by OSMOSIS causing LYSIS. Collecting duct becomes less permeable with MORE ADH released
3 of 6
What is glucose concentration and what controls it?
The control of the amount of glucose in the bloodstream and cells, controlled by the liver with either insulin or glucagon hormones
4 of 6
What happens if glocose concentration low?
respiration slows down so not enough energy. Glycogen released and turned into glucose by glucagon
5 of 6
What happens if glucose concentration high?
water moves out of cells by osmosis as water potential is low. Respiration holds again so no energy. Glucose turned into glycogen by insulin
