  • placenta
  • In the fetal liver, 989 genes were expressed differentially (555 up-regulated, 434 down-regulated) in response to maternal folate depletion, with 460 genes expressed differentially (250 up-regulated, 255 down-regulated) in the placenta. (mdpi.com)
  • 5) Finally, the fetal liver and the placenta have been shown to demonstrate drug metabolism, although they contribute only marginally to the total elimination capacity of drugs by the maternal system. (freethesaurus.com)
  • genes
  • Sequence analysis of 91 clones demonstrated that there was no preference for the usage of a certain JH gene segment, whereas a preference for usage of DH family genes, DXP and DLR, was seen in most cases during early fetal life. (ovid.com)
  • This is the first study where rearranged α heavy chain genes in fetal liver have been characterized. (ovid.com)
  • Our data suggest that the usage of JH genes is random, while there is a preference for DH family genes in human fetal liver. (ovid.com)
  • At 18 days of gestation, RNA was isolated from the fetal liver and subjected to DNA microarray (Affymetrix platform for 28,000 genes). (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • characteristics
  • In particular, it has been shown that human fetal liver (FL) MSCs display specific characteristics as compared to those of BM, that is, lesser immune suppressive capacity, larger expansion potential, longer telomeres, and higher telomerase activity [ 4 - 6 ]. (hindawi.com)

  • Catabolic degradation of ethanol is thus essential to life, not only of humans, but of almost all living organisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood
  • Mutations in EPHX1 have been linked with preeclampsia, elevated blood levels of bile salts (i.e. hypercholanemia), Fetal hydantoin syndrome, and diphenylhydantoin toxicity. (wikipedia.org)
