They’ll make a chemist out of you
About 10% of the words making up this list are chemistry-related terms, most of which are categorized under biochemistry. Let’s get familiar with some of them in the following:
Actin. One of the proteins that form the contractile filaments is actin. With the help of another protein called myosin, actin makes muscle movement and contractions possible.
Cutin. This transparent waxy substance is among the components that make certain leaves and fruits waterproof. Apples and cherries are coated in cutin.
Kinin. When you sustain an injury, this substance is produced. Kinins cause inflammation, which initiates the healing process. They also help reduce blood pressure.
Mucin. Produced by the goblet cells, which are secreted by the stomach and salivary glands, gel-forming mucins help clear out pathogens, allergens, and debris. They serve as the gastrointestinal tract’s first line of defense.
Renin. Secreted by the kidneys (and stored in them, too), the enzyme renin helps keep sodium and potassium at healthy levels. It also aids in controlling blood pressure.
