Coagulation

Coagulation

1. (Science: haematology) The process of clot formation.

2. (Science: chemistry) The solidification of a sol into a gelatinous mass, an alteration of a disperse phase or of a dissolved solid which causes the separation of the system into a liquid phase and an insoluble mass called the clot or curd. Coagulation is usually irreversible.

3. (Science: surgery) The disruption of tissue by physical means to form an amorphous residuum, as in electrocoagulation and photocoagulation.

Origin: L. Coagulatio

... and various conditions can cause them. One of the more common ones in thrombocytopenia or lack of some clotting factors, which may slow down blood coagulation times and thus result in minor bleeding beneath the skin that causes the petechiae. I do not know where you are based in, but in most countries ...

Connection between opioid receptors and fatty acid receptors

... vessels lowering blood pressure and angiotensin has opposite effects to bradykinin. Thrombin and platelet activating factor receptor cause blood coagulation. Possible that during some ancient era these receptors were more similar to FFAR and they all are probably able to lose sensitivity if something ...

enzyme activity laboration

I do not know how you measure your coagulation level, but if it is not very strict, the difference might be explained that way. I cannot comment on the inhibition by copper, as I have no clue what concentration would be sufficient. However ...

enzyme activity laboration

yes but tube 1 was in a 37 degree celcius environment as well. so the expected reaction from tube six would be a similar coagulation level as tube 1 when it was placed in 37 degree celcius after beeing in the fridge. the concentration of the copper sulphate was 1mol/dm^3. Thanks alot ...

enzyme activity laboration

... for the enzyme, its acidic and good temperature and it did actually coagulate, but there will be a conflict in my theory on test tube nr 6. coagulation lvl 8/10. so here im saying that the pH is good, temp is good and there are ca2+ ions present. 3: milk + chymosin + NaOH 2mol/dm^3: result ...
