Yay :D

Explain the dangers of a mother being Rh- and her fetus being Rh+ and explain why usually only the second child is at risk.
Looking forward to anatomy, protein, fossils, and optics (NYS trial) this year!

Ha, Heredity!
When the mother is Rh- & the child is Rh+, the Rh antigens produced by the mother may cross the placenta. When the second fetus is also Rh+, the antigens are already formed, so they are much more likely to attack the fetus (risk increases with successive children).

Exactly!
Also would've liked a mention of how the blood of the fetus and the mother have a much higher chance of mixing during delivery than during the pregnancy, so after the first birth the danger would skyrocket.

Lol, might as well reply again...
1st degree: Epidermis is destroyed, usually appears as reddened skin and painful; 2nd degree: Epidermis and partial or total dermis destruction, forms blisters in skin; 3rd degree: destroyed down through subcutaneous adipose tissue, usually appears black, often fatal; 4th degree:, burns down to organs and/or bones, almost always fatal.

Correct, Unome!
There is just one detail I'd like to add to 3rd degree burns, which is that nerves are destroyed.
But yeah, other than that, good answer!
Your turn!

Completely forgot about this... What enzyme is responsible for the destruction of corneodesmosomes in the stratum corneum, resulting in desquamation?

Correct, your turn. (I probably should have worded my question differently, but your answer/answers are both correct)
