  • Proteins
  • The ankyrin family of proteins form specialized membrane domains in various cell types, including neurons and cardiomyocytes but little is known about how this process occurs. (duke.edu)
  • DAX1
  • Thus, WNT-4, a novel sex-determining gene, and DAX1 play a concerted role in both the control of female development and the prevention of testes formation. (icr.ac.uk)
  • gonad
  • However, downstream of this dominant genetic switch are complex antagonistic signaling pathways that wage the battle of the sexes in the bipotential gonad. (duke.edu)
  • female
  • Female-specific activation of this promoter, Sxl(Pe), is essential to females, as it provides SXL protein to initiate the productive female-specific splicing of later Sxl transcripts, which are transcribed from the maintenance promoter (Sxl(Pm)) in both sexes. (nih.gov)
  • Deletion
  • Deletion of a gene controlling sex as well as bone formation can cause bone deformities so severe that babies can't breathe and die within hours. (goodmenproject.com)
  • behavior
  • Studying a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease, neuroscientists at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) have observed correlations between increases in both soluble and plaque-forming beta-amyloid - a protein implicated in the disease process - and dysfunctional developments on several levels: individual cortical neurons, neuronal circuits, sensory cognition, and behavior.

  • Biology
  • Carlson's history takes us from antiquity to the present day to detail how each component of human reproduction and sexuality was identified and studied, how this knowledge enlarged our understanding of sex determination, and how it was employed to interpret such little understood aspects of human biology as the origin of intersex births. (jhu.edu)
  • Identification
  • Genome-wide cataloging of male-specific subsequences, combined with transcriptome analysis, led to the identification of a type-C cytokinin response regulator as a potential sex determinant gene in this genus. (plantcell.org)
  • specifically
  • A new study sheds light on what is happening in the brain throughout the disease process, specifically with respect to the part of the cerebral cortex responsible for integrating visual information. (bioquicknews.com)
  • human
  • 2. Phylogenetic conservation and evolution of human sex determining region (SRY) gene in papaya - a dioecious plant. (bio.net)
  • MEDLINE
  • At this time each year the NLM Technical Bulletin traditionally includes information about changes made to MEDLINE during annual National Library of Medicine ® (NLM ® ) maintenance known as Year-End Processing (YEP). (nih.gov)
  • For information about how this maintenance affects the NLM schedule for adding indexed MEDLINE citations to PubMed ® , see the article, MEDLINE ® /PubMed ® Year-End Processing Activities . (nih.gov)
  • Two additional resources, Annual MEDLINE/PubMed Year-End Processing (YEP): Impact on Searching During Fall 2010 and Annual MEDLINE/PubMed Year-End Processing (YEP): Background Information , include examples of typical changes that take place in MEDLINE citations during YEP. (nih.gov)
