My notes on enzyme

Biology Review: Proteins and Enzymes

One of the simplest cells seen on earth can be an obligate parasite known as the pleuro

When examining the outcomes from the liver function tests, the entire protein and albumin levels won't be altered until there's severe problems for the liver. Severe damage means after dark a higher level fatty liver disease and progression to liver cirrhosis. At the point of cirrhosis, the liver can be so damaged by fibrosis and keloid that the ability in the liver to function being an organ is seriously compromised. Thus, the liver will never be able to create the proteins/albumin, thus this is demonstrated for the laboratory test being a decreased blood level of them. The reduction in the volume of proteins/albumin being produced is why cirrhotic patients get ascites (swelling in the abdomen), but that will should be explained in a different time.

Often it shows no symptoms and is mistaken for the stomach bug or another type. Some in the symptoms are stomach cramps, constipation, diarrhea, sore stomach when touched, fever, nausea, bloating and wind that happen to be common symptoms for the lot of health issues in order that it may go unnoticed for a while.

These naturally exist in your body, as well as their function inside digestive system would be to help breakdown food which means that your bodies can absorb the nutrients that foods contains. Enzymes also help remove toxins from your blood so they may be very beneficial.

Since all disease starts within the colon, as well as important then there is a outcomes of prebiotics and exactly how they are able to help prevent colon cancer. Soluble fiber also binds the cholesterol and fat inside our diet and helps move them through the digestive system.

  WANTED: MALE D. leucomelas
Posted by: christina.stefano - 09-10-2020, 12:30 AM - Forum: Dart Frog Classifieds - No Replies

Hello all,



I have a male D. leucomelas whose cage mate died about 2 months ago. He just started calling, so I estimate him to be around 6-8 months old. He has been interacting with me a lot more, and I feel that that has started since the other passed away. I feel bad for him  Sad

I'm specifically looking for a male around the same age as he is, however any adult will do.

Show me what you have! I'm not particular on patterns, but I do want it to be at least a little distinguishable from him. See attached picture.

Thank you in advance!

  Frog room construction
Posted by: pet_tree_gnat - 07-30-2020, 01:43 AM - Forum: Enclosures, Setup and Construction - Replies (11)

I am redoing my basement to be my frog room and have to move all of my tanks downstairs.  Really just ran out of room and it takes up too much space and we have an empty basement so I figured let's really do this right.  for now I'm going to have one wall of tanks and then several other tanks on other walls.  I might move my snake rack down in the basement as well but they have different temperature requirements and do pretty well upstairs where most the heat goes so I might let my kids keep them.  Here are some of the construction pictures if you are interested I can share how I made the joints it was pretty easy to build and everything comes out square.  All constructed with 2x4s minor sanding and planning and krylon black acrylic paint.  The valence at the top which is very difficult to see in these pictures I'll post more when the frog room is done was done with spray paint.

  elitech data loggers
Posted by: joneill809 - 07-19-2020, 12:29 PM - Forum: Lighting, Misting Systems, Tweaks, Modifications - Replies (1)

I've grown tired of my old lascar data loggers - the company stubbornly remains windows only for their support software, and we're Mac/Linux only. I found these $35 temperature and humidity loggers on amazon - build quality is kind of cheap, but for what I'm using them for, they turned out to be pretty cool. 

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01H3669T4
   

I bought two of these for my tree monitor project as a test run to see how well they work. I ended up drilling access ports behind a basking area and in a dark hide on the other end of the PVC viv. This may be trickier with my existing glass boxes since i have all the access ports in the zoomeds and exoterras covered with my top glass, but I can drill a port in my top glass at some point. 

Using the single probe for temp and humidity was a bit glitchy for me so I wired both. I set them to 1 minute samples with circular logging (11 day duration, 16,000 datapoint buffer) and ran it for about a day then checked the data through their MacOS (!) app.
   

I'll be working with them longer term tuning misting cycles and temperatures, but this is an interesting and cheap device that could be pretty useful. This viv is running at a gradient of 90% RH to 60% RH, and 72F to 93F which is pretty close to where I want to be. I have been spot checking other areas with my temperature gun, but I really like having the data logged to see continuous Temp & RH at least during my viv tuning cycles. This big viv is going to have permanent loggers though.

This company has even cheaper temperature only loggers that are similar to the Lascar design where you can just drop a USB logger directly in the viv. I didn't find a similar model with RH support, so I ended up going the probe route. I'm also not interested in more expensive models - I think have a higher number of cheaper loggers is more useful for really understanding the behavior of a viv.

EDIT: I went back and noticed they do have a USB RH/Temp logger that you can drop in the viv - these may be better for spot checking random vivs here and there:

  Background adhesives
Posted by: joneill809 - 07-11-2020, 11:35 PM - Forum: Enclosures, Setup and Construction - Replies (15)

What’s everyone using these days? My go to for years has just been siliconed cork to glass without additional treatment. I blackout the background with shelf paper for a pretty clean look. I’m building out a large V prasinus enclosure and I want the entire background and sides climbable. I’ve lined the entire enclosure with cork panels and I’m attaching cork flats and rounds to that for a more natural look. Additionally I want to treat it with peat and glue to soften the look and make it more natural looking. 

So is the go to still gorilla glue? If so which one? Any other adhesives that look promising?
