039 - Effects of Changes in Pathways
Paul Andersen explains how changes in the signal transduction pathway can affect organisms. He begins with a brief discussion of the tetrodotoxin produced by the California Newt and then explains how anthrax affects adenylate cyclase and thereby shuts down the signal transduction pathway. He also explains how diabetes mellitus is caused by the blood glucose pathway. A brief discussion of zombie powder is also included.
