Studying for exams and this came up in one of my practice exams..
Opioid receptors are G-protein coupled transmembrane receptors, activation of which inhibits adenylate cyclase and reduces cAMP levels. G-protein also promotes opening of potassium channels and inhibits opening of calcium channels, which reduces neuronal excitability and inhibits release of pain transmitters.
I want to be a nurse, not a pharmacist. What the fuck is this shit?
The hormone aldosterone is released in response to falling Na+ (sodium) ions in the body. This, in turn, increases the sensitivity of the salt receptors on your tongue which may increase your interest in salty foods. Hangovers are primarily caused by an imbalance in our electrolytes and body fluids (including sodium, as mentioned above). This is why we crave fast food and foods high in sodium (salt) when we are hung-over.
Every morning I get up and I fight that feeling deep inside me. That feeling that has seeped into every cell and is in every breath I take. I fight it all day long as I work, study, love and chase my dreams. And every night, I fall into bed, completely exhausted and every day I get up and I fight again.
But every night I also think about what I accomplished that day, and I go to bed knowing that I am bigger than those monsters inside me. I am stronger.
I am so sick of people posting texts that degrade or belittle others and then stand behind the “I’m entitled to my opinion” remark. Hitler had a fucking opinion. I’m tired of people abusing their entitlements. There is a difference between having an honest opinion and blatantly degrading another person or group.
