Answer to Question #26154 in Biochemistry for fauz ismail
Describe the path taken by a molecule of glucose from the time it enters the heart until when it reaches the small toe ?
Blood with glucose from the digestive system flows out of the rightventricle through the pulmonary arteries into the lungs.The freshly oxygenated blood withglucose then returns to the heart, go out the left ventricle through the aorta to the rest of the body. In our case, glucose is transported by blood through the legs to the toe via the corresponding arteries. At the pelvic brim, the abdominal aorta divides to form the common iliac arteries that supply by the way the lower limbs. The common iliac arteries divide into internal and external iliac arteries. Exactly external iliac arteries lead into the legs, where they become femoral, popliteal, anterior tibial, and posterior tibial arteries (in the calf). At the end, blood with glucose is moved to the digital artery (in the toes), down through the dorsal metatarsal artery in the foot, from the anteriar tibial artery and the small saphenous arteries.
