Mitochondrial Health


In the Review of Cytology; Part 3 Professor Fink explains the intra-cellular manufacture, storage and secretion of Insulin by Pancreatic Islet Cells. Professor Fink then describes Food Vacuoles, Lysosomes (“Suicide Bags”), Mitochondria, and 3 microtubule-based structures (Centrioles, Flagella & Cilia). Reference is made to apoptosis (autolysis) and 4 examples are given (including formation of embryonic fingers & toes, atrophy of the womb at menopause, atrophy of a tadpole’s tail during metamorphosis & autolysis of viral-infected human cells). In this video, Professor Fink also describes mitochondrial DNA and the role of cilia in the respiratory tract and Fallopian Tubes.

  1. Professor, my dog is giving you weird looks whenever you say "VESICLES!!" Seriously though, you are a wonderful teacher, explaining everything in a very clear and interesting way, and your lectures are helping me a lot. Thank you so much!

  2. Should I use Loperamide to decrease the frequency of defecation in diarrhea instead of using antibiotics?? I've asked this question to you instead of asking to a physician. Because I believe you have answers to every question.
