  • Distinct compatibilities between COFs and promoters can explain how different enhancers specifically activate distinct sets of genes 9 , alternative promoters within the same genes, and distinct transcription start sites within the same promoter 13 . (nature.com)
  • While earlier studies have identified genes that underlie early- versus late-onset Alzheimer's disease, the new study is the first to indicate that distinct genes might also determine the very late onset of Alzheimer's disease, in which symptoms first appear after the age of 80, said Duke Center for Human Genetics researcher William Scott, Ph.D., the study's first author.

  • functional
  • In particular, is there a distinct functional neuroanatomy associated with person knowledge? (pnas.org)
  • Both neuropsychological and functional neuroimaging research have converged on the observation that perception of, and semantic knowledge about, particular classes of inanimate stimuli (e.g., tools, musical instruments, and houses) are subserved by distinct areas of the human brain ( 1-8 ). (pnas.org)
  • To this end, we used event-related functional MRI (fMRI) to test the prediction that the brain represents person knowledge in a distinct manner from knowledge about inanimate objects. (pnas.org)
  • To better define this distinct functional anatomy, in the current study we delineate the role of the cerebellum in several nonmotor systems simultaneously and in the same subjects using resting state functional connectivity MRI. (jneurosci.org)
  • Study
  • Although a full characterization of how this is orchestrated by the brain remains elusive, a new study published by Cell Press in the May 27 issue of the journal Neuron provides insight into how the human brain may use a combination of two distinct strategies to guide behavior. (eurekalert.org)
  • type
  • For half a century, scientists didn't know whether the stranded orcas were an example of strange mutations within a single family group, or a distinct type of killer whale. (wired.com)
  • Wide-angle X-ray scattering shows that the type-2 phase is readily formed and stable at room temperature, which is very distinct from what is observed in control experiments with P3HT. (rsc.org)
  • suggest
  • We suggest that infrequent workers constitute a physiologically distinct dispersing caste, the members of which, instead of contributing to the work of the colony and helping the queen to reproduce, build up their own body reserves in preparation for dispersal and reproduction when environmental conditions are suitable. (nature.com)
  • Overall
  • These findings highlight the phenotypic heterogeneity of autism overall and its unique presentation in an etiologically distinct condition. (mendeley.com)
