Hi bobbym and Olinguito,

#186. How is 'group of structurally similar, fat-soluble entity the human body needs for complete synthesis of certain proteins that are required for blood coagulation, and also certain proteins that the body uses to manipulate binding of calcium in bone and other tissues' known as? (It is related modification of the proteins allows them to bind calcium ions, which they cannot do otherwise. Without it, blood coagulation is seriously impaired, and uncontrolled bleeding occurs.)

Name the diagnostic test : an eye examination that can detect dysfunction in central and peripheral vision which may be caused by various medical conditions such as glaucoma, stroke, brain tumours or other neurological deficits. It can be performed clinically by keeping the subject's gaze fixed while presenting objects at various places. The exam may be performed by a technician in one of several ways. The test may be performed by a technician directly, with the assistance of a machine, or completely by an automated machine.
