4. Important in the regulation of body temp.
BLOOD Plasma Solutes Proteins Albumins
Water Nutrients Globulins
Formed Elements Erythrocytes
(WBC) Agranulocytes Lymphocytes
-Originate in hemocytoblasts, found in marrow and lymphatic system
-Increase in blood during infection.
Grandular – Basophil-Secretes heparin and histamine. (Anticoagulant and inflammatory response)
– Eosinophil-Cellular defence, phagocytosis of lg. Pathogenic microorganisms and releases antinflamatory substances in allergic reaction.
– Neutrophils-Cellular defence-phagocytosis of sm. Pathogenic microorganism.
Agranulocytes – Lymphocytes-Hormonal defence-secretes antibodies involved in immune system response and regulation.
– Monocytes-Can migrate out of blood into tissue as a macrophage capable of eating bacteria cellular debris and cancerous cells.
-no nucleus, very sm. Biocave disks allow them to squeeze thought tiny areas.
-Primary component Hemoglobin.
-Transports oxygen and carbon dioxide.
-Produced in bone marrow (Erythropoiesis)
-Short life, no DNA so they cannot divide and replenish.
-They are broken down and recycled.
-Blood Clotting (When blood is removes they join together.
-They have no nucleus and are formed in the Red Bone Marrow. By fragments of very lg. Cel…
