• tissue
  • In humans, mutations in the gene encoding A-type lamins are associated with a spectrum of predominantly tissue-specific diseases known as laminopathies. (jove.com)
  • Expression of mutant forms of the A-type Drosophila lamin modeled after human disease-causing amino acid substitutions revealed an essential role for the N-terminal head and the Ig-fold in larval muscle tissue. (jove.com)
  • In conclusion, we show that (1) localization of A-type lamins and protein-partner interactions are conserved between Drosophila and humans, (2) loss of the Drosophila A-type lamin causes nuclear defects and (3) muscle tissue is sensitive to the expression of mutant forms of A-type lamin modeled after those causing disease in humans.

  • laser
  • A newer type of trabeculoplasty is known as selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) in which a low level energy laser is used to target specific cells in the drainage channels using short laser pulses. (arleye.com)
  • Using a special type of laser, a tiny hole is created through the top part of the iris to allow free flow of aqueous fluid to the drainage angle. (arleye.com)
