Oxygen Transport: the Regulation of our Bodily Fluids

Oxygen is the final electron acceptor in the body. It binds with the electrons at the end of the electron transport chain in respiration. Therefore the transport of oxygen across the body is a crucial procedure as oxygen must be able to travel to all the respiring cells in the body to collect the electronsContinue reading “Oxygen Transport: the Regulation of our Bodily Fluids”

The life of a cell: cell cycle

Our cells are the building blocks of our bodies. They operate and function, provide the structure for our bodies, take in nutrients and do their specifed roles for our body, but they aren’t immortal. These cells must continually be replicated and be able to divide, to ensure our body can fully operate. That’s why cellContinue reading “The life of a cell: cell cycle”

The Mechanism of Cells

The journey into the human body is one of many surprises. The deeper we delve, the more intricate and complex the mechanisms start to look. It’s easy to get lost in these intricate details: either through being in awe of their beautiful perfection, or their complexity. In this blog we will look at the fundamentalsContinue reading “The Mechanism of Cells”
