  • Cytotoxic
  • Examples of cytotoxic molecule stored by specific granules in different granulocytes include: Neutrophil: alkaline phosphatase, lactoferrin, lysozyme, NADPH oxidase Eosinophil: cathepsin, major basic protein Basophil: heparin, histamine (not directly cytotoxic) A specific granule deficiency can be associated with CEBPE. (wikipedia.org)
  • typically
  • The materials with the highest specific strengths are typically fibers such as carbon fiber, glass fiber and various polymers, and these are frequently used to make composite materials (e.g. carbon fiber-epoxy). (wikipedia.org)
  • known
  • Another way to describe specific strength is breaking length, also known as self support length: the maximum length of a vertical column of the material (assuming a fixed cross-section) that could suspend its own weight when supported only at the top. (wikipedia.org)
  • Specific appetite, also known as specific hunger, is a drive to eat foods with specific flavors or other characteristics. (wikipedia.org)
  • Very little is known about the specific mechanisms inducing specific appetite, and the genes encoding for specific appetites are mostly speculative. (wikipedia.org)
  • Addison's disease is known to induce a specific craving for sodium, although other diseases causing hyponatremia may not induce the same response. (wikipedia.org)
  • Once the desired specific speed is known, basic dimensions of the unit's components can be easily calculated. (wikipedia.org)
  • The specific weight (also known as the unit weight) is the weight per unit volume of a material. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • Specific granules are secretory vesicles found exclusively in cells of the immune system called granulocytes. (wikipedia.org)
  • identifiable
  • The problem with many other nutrients is that they do not have distinctly identifiable tastes, and only two other specific appetites, for iron and calcium, have been identified with experimental rigour so far. (wikipedia.org)
  • water
  • Specific appetite has been demonstrated in various species for a number of vitamins and minerals, as well as calories, protein, and water. (wikipedia.org)
  • In soil mechanics, specific weight may refer to: Moist unit weight, which is the unit weight of a soil when void spaces of the soil contain both water and air. (wikipedia.org)
  • widely
  • Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a widely used marker for the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer. (aacrjournals.org)
  • The following table shows the factors for converting to J/kg: The concept of specific energy is related to but distinct from the chemical notion of molar energy, that is energy per mole of a substance, which uses units of energy per mole, such as J/mol, kJ/mol, or the older (but still widely used) kcal/mol. (wikipedia.org)
  • example
  • For example, in a civil tort, if the jury makes the specific finding that a defendant's actions did not proximately cause the plaintiff's injury, the defendant may as a matter of law be held not liable to the plaintiff. (wikipedia.org)
  • An example would be news that is specific to either one stock or a group of companies, such as the loss of a patent or a major natural disaster affecting the company's operation. (wikipedia.org)
  • measure
  • Specific output is a measure of engine performance. (wikipedia.org)
  • For free bodies, the specific force is the cause of, and a measure of, the body's proper acceleration. (wikipedia.org)
  • Accelerometers measure specific force (proper acceleration), which is the acceleration relative to free-fall, not the "standard" acceleration that is relative to a coordinate system. (wikipedia.org)
  • term
  • The dividing unit is sometimes added before the term "specific", and sometimes omitted. (wikipedia.org)
  • The following are two therapies normally used in treating specific phobia: Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a short term, skills-focused therapy that aims to help people diffuse unhelpful emotional responses by helping people consider them differently or change their behavior, is effective in treating specific phobias. (wikipedia.org)
  • units
  • The International Space Elevator Consortium has proposed the "Yuri" as a name for the SI units describing specific strength. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pump specific speed can be calculated using British gallons or using Metric units (m3/s or L/s and metres head), changing the values listed above. (wikipedia.org)
  • relative
  • However, the (mass-)specific force is not a coordinate-acceleration, but rather a proper acceleration, which is the acceleration relative to free-fall. (wikipedia.org)
  • form
  • Exposure therapy is a particularly effective form of CBT for specific phobias. (wikipedia.org)
  • The gray and sievert are specialized measures for specific energy absorbed by body tissues in the form of radiation. (wikipedia.org)
  • heat
  • Heat-stressed fowls seek out vitamin C, which alleviates the consequences of heat stress Learned specific appetites are not necessarily a result of an animal's ability to detect the presence of a nutrient. (wikipedia.org)
  • physical
  • Specific activity is the activity per quantity of a radionuclide and is a physical property of that radionuclide. (wikipedia.org)
  • Since the probability of radioactive decay for a given radionuclide is a fixed physical quantity (with some slight exceptions, see Changing decay rates), the number of decays that occur in a given time of a specific number of atoms of that radionuclide is also a fixed physical quantity (if there are large enough numbers of atoms to ignore statistical fluctuations). (wikipedia.org)
  • object
  • The fear or anxiety may be triggered both by the presence and the anticipation of the specific object or situation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Main features of diagnostic criteria for specific phobia in the DSM-IV-TR: Marked and persistent fear that is excessive or unreasonable, cued by the presence or anticipation of a specific object or situation (e.g., flying, heights, animals, receiving an injection, seeing blood). (wikipedia.org)
  • The specific energy of an object such as a meteoroid falling on the earth from outside the earth's gravitational well is at least one half the square of the escape velocity of 11.2 km/s. (wikipedia.org)
  • greater
  • The specific strength is bounded to be no greater than c2 ~ 7013900000000000000♠9×1013kN·m/kg, where c is the speed of light. (wikipedia.org)
  • Type
  • Minimal enhancer/promoter constructs derived from the 5′ flank of the human PSA gene (prostatespecific enhancer) were inserted into adenovirus type 5 DNA so as to drive the E1A gene, thereby creating a prostate-specific enhancer-containing virus, CN706. (aacrjournals.org)
  • A specific finding pertains to a type of verdict rendered in a jury trial. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • Unfortunately, specific appetite is very difficult to study experimentally, as there are a number of factors that influence food choice. (wikipedia.org)
  • reference
  • The resulting figure would more descriptively be called the "ideal-reference-device-specific performance. (wikipedia.org)
  • Forces, specific forces, and proper accelerations are the same in all reference frames, but coordinate accelerations are frame-dependent. (wikipedia.org)
