Acromegaly is due to hypersecretion of
None of these
Growth hormone (GH) is secreted by anterior pituitary gland. It works with thyroid hormone and controls the normal growth. Hypersecretion (over production) of growth hormones in children causes the bones to grow unusually long. This results in a condition known as gigantism. But in adults, hypersecretion of growth hormone causes the bones of hands and face to thicken. This results in a condition called as acromegaly.
If frog's brain is crushed, even then its leg moves on pinpointing. It is called

Sexual reproduction involves viable male and female gametes.
Development of egg into an adult without fertilization is called parthenogenesis. It is common in honey bees.

Which of the following is made up of a single bone in mammals?
All of these
Dentary is a tooth bearing membrane bone. In mammals, it is the lower jaw, consisting of single membrane bone on each side fused together in front.
Spindle fibres of mitotic cell are made up of
Spindle fibres are formed during cell division. These are made up of tubulin. Each tubulin molecule is made up of a. and B sub-units. Tubulin molecules are attached heat to tail and form a strand and 13 strands aggregate to form a microtubule. These microtubules are attached to kinetochores of. metaphase chromosomes and play an important role in the movement of chromosomes during subsequent stages of cell division.
Fifth cranial nerve of frog is called
Trigeminal nerve is fifth cranial nerve of frog. It arises from lateral sides of medulla oblongata.
Vagus is a large mixed and tenth cranial nerve. It regulates the respiration rate, heart rate and digestive activities.
Optic is the second sensory cranial nerve, which brings in sight messages from eyes.
Olfactory is the first sensory nerve, which brings in smell messages from nose.
Brunner's glands are present in
Brunner's gland is found in submucosa of duodenum. It secrete an alkaline fluid composed of mucin, which exerts a physiologic anti-acid function by coating the duodenal epithelium, therefore protecting it from the acid chyme of the stomach.
