Tissues that are metabolically active and utilize large amounts of energy would be rich in?
Asked in Capillaries
What is the capillaries job?
A capillary is an extremely small blood vessel located within the tissues of the body, that transports blood from arteries to veins. Capillaries are most abundant in tissues and organs that are metabolically active. For example, muscle tissues and the kidneys have a greater amount of capillary networks than do connective tissues. ...
What is metabolically active retroperitonial iliac lymph nodes?
Retroperitoneal iliac nodes are lymph nodes that are located in the back of the pelvis. Being metabolically active suggests the possibility of cancer or infection. ...
Asked in Genetics
Why are metabolically active cells limited to very small sizes?
They are more metabolically acitve then larger cells because they have a smaller surface area to volume ratio then the larger cells which means the enzymes and proteins can move around faster and this makes the cell metabolically active. ...
What is the relation between nissl's bodies and ribosomes?
The prominence of the Nissl substance can be explained by the fact that nerve cells are metabolically very active, and hence are involved in large amounts of protein synthesis. ...
Asked in Cell Biology (cytology)
What is the characteristic property of metabolically active cell?
Metabolically active cells have many characteristic properties. A healthy growth of cell number and cell activity is one property. Low numbers of decaying cells and active cell proliferation are other characteristics of metabolic activity. ...
Asked in Particle Physics
What is involved in positron emission tomography?
radioactive glucose, a sugar, is injected into the body. The glucose travels to metabolically active sites, including cancerous regions that require large amounts of glucose. The PET scan detects the radioactivity ...
Why do the abdominal region brain and active muscles produce more heat?
The brain, active muscles, and abdominal region produce more heat because they are more metabolically active. ...
Asked in Exercise
What body tissue is most metabolically active?
It's my understanding that collectively, your organs (particularly liver, heart, spleen, kidneys, and brain) are the most metabolically active tissues in your body, then muscle. Since we can't control the size of our organs, building up your muscles through strengthening exercises is the best way to raise one's resting metabolic rate. Regular aerobic exercise also temporarily raises your metabolism each time you do it, and overall burns calories. ...
Asked in Genetics
What organelle are there great amounts in cells that use a lot of energy?
In eukaryotic cells that are very metabolically active (such as liver or muscle cells) you will find a lot of mitochondria. These will produce ATP via the electron transfer chain to be used as cellular energy. ...
Asked in Cell Biology (cytology), Mitochondria
Why does muscles have the most mitochondria in it?
Muscles are metabolically active. Contractions of muscles cost ATP. So there are many mitochondria ...
