The cell is the building block of all living structures in the human body, so learning the basic principles of cell function will serve you well in understanding tissue pathology. Because there are so many functions that a cell can perform, there is opportunity for error every second of every day. Our cells have evolved to detect these threats and correct them, but sometimes germline or somatic mutations lead to irreversible pathology. For example, a cell membrane defect might lead to paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria or hereditary spherocytosis, while defects in ion transporters may lead to cystic fibrosis. Each pathway of the cell and its organelles is subject to dysregulation and disease, but it is important to understand each of thee core “housekeeping” functions of the cell before diving into the pathology. In this course, you will learn both.
Extremely clear. In few minuts teaches many concepts. Is interesting to listen his lecture.
Beautiful explanation plus integration between the subjects so it becomes easy for answering any clinical based MCQ
Greatings from Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil. Great lecture, profesor. I like very much of your classes, this particularly, it is helping me a lot within a presentation that i have to make at my medical school.
The Professor does an excellent job explaining the topics very well.
