# The nurse discusses the recommended weight gain during pregnancy with a newly pregnant client who is 5 ft 3 in (160 centimeters) tall and weighs 130 lb (57 kilograms). the nurse explains that with the recommended weight gain, at term the client should weigh how much?

Answer: At term she should weight between 155 to 165 pounds. The recommended weight gain during pregnancy is determined by the body mass index (BMI) of the women prior to pregnancy. The formula for BMI in imperial units is weight / height^2 * 703 where weight is in pounds height is in inches Substituting known values gives 703 * 130/63^2 = 91390/3969 = 23 So the client's BMI is 23. The recommendations for total weight gain is BMI < 18.5, 28 to 40 pounds 18.5

During fasting or starvation, the brain: A) Converts endogenous fatty acids into β-hydroxybutyrate.
B) Utilizes β-hydroxybutyrate from the blood stream.
C) Utilizes amino acids for fuel from degradation of brain protein.
D) Utilizes its glycogen stores as a first responding source of fuel.
E) All of the above.

Answer: Utilizes its glycogen stores as a first responding source of fuel.

Explanation: The brain only uses glucose as source of energy. When there is too much blood glucose, insulin is activated and anabolically starts the proces of gluconeogenesis, where glucose is stored in branches. During starvation these glucose molecules are broken down catabolically to provide the brain fuel or energy.

Based on this information, do you still think lions and tigers are separate species? (all responses will be marked correct.)

The cat species are extremely hard to tell apart as they all have pretty much the same anatomical structure, with the size usually being what differs them most easily. The lion and the tiger are no exceptions. Both species share pretty much the same anatomy, their size is similar, their genetics are almost identical, their behavior is largely the same. This can be very confusing as it seems like it is one species we are talking about, not two separate ones. The only obvious difference between the tiger and the lion is their fur. The tigers have orange base with vertical black stripes, while the lions are dark yellowish, with the males having a mane as well. The easiest way to check if its two different species in question is to see if they can produce healthy offspring. This is where we can see that it is different species we are talking about. While the lion and the tiger are able to produce offspring, the offspring is abnormally marge, much more than any of the parents. But what is more important is that the offspring is sterile, and very often comes with serious deficiencies, thus providing us with proof that it is two separate species.

Roan coat color in cattle develops through incomplete dominance of the gene for red color and its allele for white. what crossing combination will yield a herd of true-breeding, roan-colored cattle?

Roan is a combination of white hairs with red hairs. When we see cattle like this, they look pink because it resulted from a mix of white and red.

Red allele: A
White allele: a

A heterozygotic animal has this genotype: Aa
Like i said previously this is the mixture of colors so the animal would be pink.

A red coat color has this genotype: AA
A white coat color has this genotype: aa

To get all the herd to be roan-colored cattle the combination of parents should be: AA x aa. -> 100% roan
Another possible way to obtain would beroan-colored cattle: Aa x Aa or aa x Aa (in this case there would be less probabable to obtain road).

What is a producer in biology?

A producer (also known as an autotrophic plant) serve as a food source for other organisms within an ecosystem. They have the capability to produce their own food using photosynthesis.

Which of the following describes the tundra biome? A. characterized by frost-molded landscapes

B. characterized by short growing seasons

C. characterized by little precipitation
D. all of the above​

All of these.

Explanation:

The ground in a tundra biome is in Permafrost, or in a complete, unending freeze. The growing seasons are very short so most animals have to be able to migrate or hibernate during the non-growing season. Also, the tundra biomes get about as much precipitation as your average desert, and this small amount is all snow.

D. All of the above.

The tundra has an extremely cold climate. a simple vegetation structure, & short seasons of growth & reproduction.

Layers of epithelial tissue that serve as barriers to pathogens is called

The correct answer is: Mucus membrane.

Explanation:

• The lining of the epithelial tissue forming the mucus membrane contains some specialised cells which are called the Goblet cells.
• These cells secrete a slippery substance called the Mucus.
• The Mucus is a dense, aqueous and slippery substance that is composed of anti-microbial enzymes like lysosyme, immunoglobulins (antibodies) and glycoproteins like mucins.
• The mucus secreting cells line the internal tracts of the body that come into contact with outside environment, like the respiratory tract, alimentary canal, urino-genital tract.
• If any microbial pathogen gain access into any of these tracts the lysosyme in the mucus causes the microbial cells to undergo lysis, hence killed.
• The immunoglobulins, on recognising a pathogen, activate the immune cells of the body to fight against the intruding pathogen.
