i swear i've done the same question before on uworld/ one of the previous NBMEs and the answer to that was intracellular Ca accumulation.
I think it's the nucleus affected in lateral medullary syndrome (instead of the nerve axons)
Synaptobrevin is a SNARE protein. Why they couldn’t just give us SNARE I’ll never know.
Cause they're dicks, and they watched sketchy to make sure our buzzwords were removed from the exam
Oh and they read FA and did UW to make sure its not in there either
This toxin binds to the presynaptic membrane of the neuromuscular junction and is internalized and transported retroaxonally to the spinal cord. Enzymatically, tetanus toxin is a zinc metalloprotease that cleaves the protein synaptobrevin, an integral neurovesicle protein involved in membrane fusion. Without membrane fusion, the release of inhibitory neurotransmitters glycine and GABA is blocked. -rx questions!
So out of curiosity I checked out B) N-Acetylneuraminic acid
It's sialic acid
thanks for this explanation!
can any one explain to me why not lens ?
@macrophage95 Lens are an interal part of the refractive power of the eye. Without the lens the image would not be formed on the retina, thus leading to visual loss
Do anyone know why not choroid?
@qfever, no choroid would also be more detrimental to vision since it supplies blood to the retina
But isn't statin associated with hepatotoxicity too? FA 2019 page 320
Author rationale: "What is grammar?"
Did anyone read like 50 times and still get it wrong? (LOL, me)
Actually never understand what the author saying at any time. LOL
how are we supposed to know that dipalmitoyl lecithin is the same thing as dipalmitorylphosphatidylcholine
FA 2019 page 647
Pulmonary surfactant is a complex mix of lecithins, the most important of which is dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC).
Also: Screening tests for fetal lung maturity: lecithin- sphingomyelin (L/S) ratio in amniotic fluid
(≥ 2 is healthy; < 1.5 predictive of NRDS)
