At normal plasma concentrations 1 mg estradiol fast delivery menopause night sweats relief, calcium and phosphate are at or near chemical saturation levels discount 2 mg estradiol free shipping young women's health birth control. If PTH were to increase both calcium and phosphate levels, they would simply crystallize in bone or soft tissues as calcium phosphate, and the necessary increase in plasma calcium concentration would not occur. Thus, the effect of PTH to lower plasma phosphate is an important aspect of its role in regulating plasma calcium.

Blood clotting is mediated by the sequential activation of a series of coagulation factors, proteins synthesized in the liver that circulate in the plasma in an inactive state. They are referred to by number (designated by a Roman numeral) in a sequence based on the order of the discovery of each factor. The plasma coagulation factors and their common names are listed in Table 11. The sequential activation of a series of inactive mole- cules resulting in a biological response is called a metabolic cascade. The sequential activation of coagulation factors resulting in the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin (and, hence, clotting) is called the coagulation cascade.
