Update Signature Preferences

--Mark Hill 08:48, 3 August 2011 (EST) Before you add today's lab attendance to your student page you will first need to update your preferences.

This update will now identify you only by student number in your online signature.

  1. Log in
  2. Open Preferences
  3. Under the section "Signature" change "New signature:" to your student number (Z..........).
  4. At the bottom of the page click save.

Now when you sign lab attendance only your student number will appear. You may now delete your first lab attendance signature as I have a roll taken for this class.

Lab 2 Online Assessment

  1. Identify the ZP protein that spermatozoa binds and how is this changed (altered) after fertilisation.

ZP3 is a zona pellucida protein that spermatozoa binds to. Enzymes digest the zona pellucida after fertilisation which alters ZP3 so it will no longer bind sperm plasma membrane.

  1. Identify a review and a research article related to your group topic. (Paste on both group discussion page with signature and on your own page)

Group topic: cystic fibrosis

Review article: H.A. Tiddens, Detecting early structural lung damage in cystic fibrosis, Pediatr Pulmonol 34 (3) (2002), pp. 228–231.

Research article: Wang SS, FitzSimmons SC, O'Leary LA, Rock MJ, Gwinn ML, Khoury MJ, Early diagnosis of cystic fibrosis in the newborn period and risk of Pseudomonas aeruginosa acquisition in the first 10 years of life: A registry-based longitudinal study, Pediatrics, 2001 Feb, 107(2):274-9.
