Tubes

tubes, fallopian

The fallopian tubes normally transport the egg of the female from the egg sac, or ovary, to the womb, or uterus. Normal tubes have small hair like projections on the lining cells called cilia. These cilia are important to movement of the egg through the fallopian tube and into the uterus. If the tubal cilia are damaged by infection, the egg may not get 'pushed along' normally and can settle in the tube. Likewise, if infection causes partial blockage of the tube with scar tissue, this can also act to prevent the egg from getting to the uterus. Any process that narrows the tube and thus decrease the caliber of the passage way can increase the chance of an ectopic pregnancy. Examples of these would be endometriosis, tumours, or scar tissue in the pelvis (pelvic adhesions) that cause twisting or chinking of the tube.

Re: blank and substrate control give OD reads

Here's another approach. Set up a pair of tubes identically, containing everything but the xylanase. Check their OD. Add xylanase to one of the tubes and mix. Check the OD again. That way you control for other potential errors, such as a difference ...

Re: water problem work sheet

... workers omitted the Presumptive test and performed the Confirmed test first? 4. A student observed gas formation in all 5 of the lactose broth tubes in the Presumptive test but the EMB plates in the Confirmed test showed no growth. What could the student conclude about the organisms present ...
