Science quiz?

hey every one im claire and im home schooled im fairly enjoying it i hold been home school for less than a year im really struggling next to this one question on my science assignment so please could race try and help me the ask is that if a marathon runner eat a large amount of starchy carbohydrate the hours of darkness before a see. describe the roles of insulin and glucagon within the runners body up to that time and during the race hope some one will know how to help me because this is my finishing resort im struggling with it so much and cant find any give support to any where appreciation for reading

Those may give a hand.
Glycogen synthesis is also stimulated by the insulin receptor via IRS-1. In this case, it is the SH2 domain of PI-3 kinase (PI-3K) that binds the P-Tyr of IRS-1. Now activate, PI-3K can convert the membrane lipid phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) to phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-triphosphate (PIP3). This indirectly activates a protein kinase, PKB, via phosphorylation. PKB consequently phosphorylates several target proteins, including glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK-3). GSK-3 is responsible for phosphorylating (and thus deactivating) glycogen synthase. When GSK-3 is phosphorylated, it is deactivated, and prevented from deactivating glycogen synthase. In this roundabout manner, insulin increases glycogen synthesis.

Actions of insulin on neurons

Insulin act on all cell of the body. Although other cells can live on other fuels for a while, neurons are totally dependent on glucose as a source of vim. Thus, a lack of glucose first and most dramatically manifest itself in the functioning of the federal nervous system. The phenomenon be once known as insulin shock, and is presently called hypoglycemia or hypoglycemic coma. Because internal cause of insulin excess are extremly rare (insulinoma), the overwhelming majority of hypoglycemia cases are iatrogenic (caused by medical intervention). Two nonspecific classes of medication can cause hypoglycemia :

* oral hypoglycemic agents
* insulin within form of injection (subcutaneous, rarely intramuscular or intravenous)

Regulatory arrangements of insulin on blood glucose levels

Despite long intervals between meal and the occasional consumption of meals next to substantial carbohydrate load (e.g partly a birthday cake), blood glucose levels typically remain within unquestionable boundaries. This homeostatic process involves many activities but hormone regulation is the most important. There are two groups of antagonistic (contradictory) hormones :

* hyperglycemic hormones (such as glucagon, growth hormone, and adrenaline), which increase blood sugar,
* and one and only one hypoglycemic hormone (insulin), which decreases blood sugar.

This is because, at lowest in the short possession, it is less adverse to have too much glucose contained by the blood than too little.

Beta cells surrounded by the islets of Langerhans have receptors that are sensitive to variation in blood glucose. If the even increases, more insulin from the stores is released and production intensified. When the level comes down to the physiologic importance, the release stops. If the level of glucose drops worryingly low, hyperglycemic hormones come into play.

Actions of insulin on neurons

Insulin acts on adjectives cells of the body. Although other cell can live on other fuels for a while, neurons are totally dependent on glucose as a source of energy. Thus, a insufficiency of glucose first and most dramatically manifests itself contained by the functioning of the central frightened system. The phenomenon was once certain as insulin shock, and is now call hypoglycemia or hypoglycemic coma. Because internal causes of insulin excess are extremly in danger of extinction (insulinoma), the overwhelming majority of hypoglycemia cases are iatrogenic (caused by medical intervention). Two general classes of medication can do hypoglycemia :

* oral hypoglycemic agents
* insulin in form of injection (subcutaneous, seldom intramuscular or intravenous)
It is a pretty intense interaction that was discovered smaller number then 150 years ago.
From waht I know if it, most starchy carbs draw from stored as a percentage of fat, sometimes as much as 50% and the rest is used as instant sugar.

Sugar feed the body cells, it it also burns them up so it must be coated, so to speak, next to insulin to prevent burning body cells.

The avaerage personage burns 2,000 calories a day at rest and a darkness meal and sleep can equal 10 or 12 hours which can equal 1,000 calories of instant sugar burn bad and even call on reserves (fat).

Most runners surrounded by good shape don't enjoy that much fat.

I'm chitchat, of course, olympic types. They repeatedly have 9-11% flab (BMI) or about 1/3 of what a typical individual in common body size has.

Carbing up is collectively a regime used by body builders.

I tend to think a nighttime carbing will a moment ago get the runner through to mid-morning.

They will have need of to infuse some instant sugar.

They will also need to infuse some Phosphates to aid in the restorationg of ATP production.

ATP production is required to do work, such as running.

Read up on ATP production.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adenosine_t...

The liver and pancrease work within tandement to send a stream of sugar and insulin into the body to nurture the cells. But to produce ATP more effectively some types of phosphates must also be included within the body chemistry.

This sugar is usually draw from the stomach and liver in the form of instant sugars (drinking, for example, red juice nearer in the year or having cerial near fruit, your carbs which get stored to a degree as reserve sugar) and reserve sugars from fats.

That is how you lose substance by burning off fat, but most runners in correct shape starve themselve (or purge themselves) of fats and normally need to infuse fat in the form of olive grease on a daily starting place.

Now you don't want to have food within your stomach before you run. But after 8 hours most of the food you ate as burned rotten or been converted to some reserve sugar.

You don't specify abundantly of mitigating factors here, approaching how many calories of starches be consumed, the BMI ratio of the runner and their cardio system.

Someone who runs a lot have a more efficent cardio system and burns sugars and fats more efficently.

From where on earth I stand the best way to look at this is approaching a car.

You put gas within a car at dark (carb up) but the car is not here running in fester all darkness long so it burns up some of that gas or most of it. In the morning that car is going to requirement more gas to get you to work.

That is, at smallest, the practical aspect.

You also don't specify when the marathon take place time wise.

If it's precipitate, I'd have the runner achieve up very untimely and eat a carby breakfast beside some isntant sugars several hours before the event so the roughage is purged from the system by evacuation but not the sugars.

I'd also include some phosphates.

YOu want to nurture the muscles with available sugar and provide some phosphates to help out restore ATP production quickly.

There are quasi iffy substances (at least surrounded by a competition) that do this, such as Creatine, which is probably banned or frowned upon.

But here are other drinks with phosphates that not a soul takes an issue near.

You might want to also look up Creatine to see how it works in ATP production.

Creatine, it should be noted, doesn't do much for racers. It's mostly for body builders. But it IS an ATP hyper upper.

Now the process of consuming sugars and starches ruin up in the stomach and direct sugars such as Fructose can grasp absorbed almsot direclty into the body, other sugars such as table sugar requirement preocessing to turn it into glucose.

Once sugars go into the body insulin have to be released to keep the sugar from buring cell.

Insulin has a refusal effect on calcification and as such introducing insuling in great proportions (which happens) decalcifies bones and teeth. Bone become prone to breaking and teeth become prone to oxidization.

It is the insulin in the body.

Now when a entity like this wake up they have a more regulated insulin and sugar flow later when they ate their dinner.

When you eat, especially sugar-carbs, you get hold of a sugar spike (glucose spike or gylcermic spike) that rasiese your body system way too illustrious from a cardio vascular point of view.

The insulin go in and attemps to level-headed this down.

It attempst to keep the sugar within the body under control and slim down it to a safe flow horizontal to feed the body cell.

So by morning your runner has a on the brink flow of sugar and insulin, but has used up a equal portion of the instant sugar and some reserves just producing ATP to hang on to their lungs moving during sleep.

The diaphragm and heart have be burning this sugar to keep ATP production going to pump the blood and circulate the atmosphere.

It is hard to say aloud how much reserves were stored up from the carbs and how several were call upon by the body during the night. A lot of this have to do with the amount of body corpulent the runner has intially. Their BMI can play a significant factor, for a LOW BMI make it very, especially hard for the body to phone up upon the remaning fat cell for reserve sugar.

Now if the person have a modest BMI of 15 or 20% those reserve fats from the starches may provide some extra power for the year.
