It is the clinical expression of homozygosity for hemoglobin S.Sickle Cell Trait: The condition of being heterozygous for hemoglobin S.Alzheimer Disease: A degenerative disease of the BRAIN characterized by the insidious onset of DEMENTIA.

(From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1049-57)Priapism: A prolonged painful erection that may lasts hours and is not associated with sexual activity. It is seen in patients with SICKLE CELL ANEMIA, advanced malignancy, spinal trauma; and certain drug treatments.Hemoglobin C Disease: A disease characterized by compensated hemolysis with a normal hemoglobin level or a mild to moderate anemia. There may be intermittent abdominal discomfort, splenomegaly, and slight jaundice.Osteonecrosis: Death of a bone or part of a bone, either atraumatic or posttraumatic.Hemoglobin, Sickle: An abnormal hemoglobin resulting from the substitution of valine for glutamic acid at position 6 of the beta chain of the globin moiety.

HDL lipoproteins, synthesized in the liver without a lipid core, accumulate cholesterol esters from peripheral tissues and transport them to the liver for re-utilization or elimination from the body (the reverse cholesterol transport). Their major protein component is APOLIPOPROTEIN A-I. HDL also shuttle APOLIPOPROTEINS C and APOLIPOPROTEINS E to and from triglyceride-rich lipoproteins during their catabolism. HDL plasma level has been inversely correlated with the risk of cardiovascular diseases.Lipoproteins: Lipid-protein complexes involved in the transportation and metabolism of lipids in the body.

  • Another parameter may be the variation available within the population, as the power of selection is proportional to the amount of genetic variation, all things equal. (discovermagazine.com)
  • In contrast, populations in the center of Eurasia have access to a great deal of genetic variation because they're in proximity to many distinctive groups (the Uyghurs for example are a recent hybrid population with European, South Asian and East Asian ancestry). (discovermagazine.com)
  • Both genetic segregation and genomic hybridization data are consistent with an allotetraploid nature of the Salix species. (mdpi.com)

  • Although this idea seemed to make sense and was widely held as correct at the time, it unfortunately did not account for genetic abnormalities or even common human discrepancies such as hair- or eye-color variations. (infoplease.com)
  • We thus introduced a protocol allowing for reconstruction of the reproductive history of families with birth defects in Fallujah that allows to see the pattern of their presentation in time. (globalresearch.ca)
  • Migraine without aura seems to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors whereas migraine with aura is probably determined largely or exclusively by genetic factors. (bmj.com)
  • Although demographic factors such as age, race, and socioeconomic status, as well as genetic factors, seem to be risk factors for the development and progression of asthma, 4 - 6 the increasing prevalence and severity of asthma suggest that agents in the general environment play particularly important roles in the pathogenesis of this condition. (aappublications.org)
  • However, sufficient twin and adoption studies are lacking to distinguish genetic from other familiar factors (for a discussion of why such studies are important in determining genetic versus environmental factors, see this article ), and direct genetic studies have not shown clear linkages . (wikibooks.org)
  • Irving Gottesman could only conclude: 'We must perhaps accept 'unseen genetic' factors as an article of faith and patiently wait for advances in the neurosciences. (newscientist.com)
  • Stuttering has long been known to cluster in families, and much evidence has accumulated that genetic factors help cause stuttering in some cases. (stutteringhelp.org)
  • The etiology of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is believed to be multifactorial, including genetic factors. (aafp.org)
  • It is suspected to be a polygenic condition, meaning that many genetic factors may be involved. (nih.gov)
  • Experts recommend that all pregnant women, regardless of age or circumstance, be offered genetic counseling and testing to screen for Down syndrome . (kidshealth.org)
  • The probability is that the New World was populated by humans only for the past ~10,000-15,000 years or so, with an outside chance of ~20,000 years (if you trust a particular interpretation of the genetic data, which you probably shouldn't). (discovermagazine.com)
