My exact thinking also!
My thought as well but the answer says: "Binding of ligand to Nuclear transcription factor" and I thought to myself: "Estrogen Receptors aren't transcription factors.. they are receptors with Transcription Factor function that bind to the ER Element and recruit more Transcription Factors". Can anyone explain what I am missing? Am overthinking things?
You are overthinking it, Steroid hormones receptor is found intracellular in the cytoplasm then they are translocated to the nucleus where they regulate gene transcription. HOPE THIS HELPS
Could this be due to the PTEN gene being linked to endometrial hyperplasia?
MAGIC RACKS is a good mnemonic ive heard for 450 inhibitors
(macrolides, amiodarone, grapefruit, cimetidine, RITONAVIR, alcohol (chronic), cipro, ketoconazole, sulfa
Macrolides EXCEPT azithromycin -- they like to trick you with that one.
chronic alcohol induces 450, acute alcohol inhibits 450
Why would the second part of that be correct when there is not mention of a DNR?
DNI and DNR are different right? This patient had a DNI. Why would we assume it to be DNR too?
DNI and DNR are indeed different. But it is not the case here. The patient needs to be extubated means she did not sign a DNI or DNR in the first place. I assume her living will is more like terminate supporting treatment in a vegetative state. So there is no need to do resuscitation anyways. But I agree this is not a good question.
"The patient has signed the living will and is consistent with her directives" but the stem doesnt tell has what is in her living will about the extubation? we are extubating on the request of her husband? this is confusing !
I believe this question was not well constructed... it's one of those!
@shayan extubating at request of the husband because he's following what's in her living will. Following that line of thought, the patient probably wanted withdrawal of care if in a vegetative state.
I understood same as @shayan that she wanted to keep intubated... now reading it again I feel extra dumb with my poor reading interpretation skills
