• tissue
  • This review is an attempt to reveal the biomedical importance of taurine including its effect on heart, lung, kidney, bone, fetal tissue, retinal photoceptors, oxidative stress and cancer. (ukessays.com)
  • A total of 52 proteins in fetal subcutaneous adipose tissue were identified as differentially expressed over the course of gestation. (springer.com)
  • Time-course differences in adipose tissue protein abundance were revealed between fetal genotypes for a few secreted proteins participating in responses to organic substances, such as alpha-2-HS-glycoprotein, transferrin and albumin. (springer.com)
  • These results underline the importance of not only fetal age but also maternal intrauterine environment in the regulation of several proteins in subcutaneous adipose tissue. (springer.com)
  • respiratory
  • It has been increasingly recognized that hypoxia, even when short lasting, can modify subsequent respiratory responses to hypoxia and induce a variety of genes whose consequences will persist for much longer periods than the duration of the hypoxic stimulus itself, i.e., functional and adaptive plasticities.

  • development
  • We investigated the quantitative, phenotypic, and functional development of skin leukocytes and analyzed the factors controlling their proliferation and trafficking during skin development. (rupress.org)
  • To better understand the development of professional skin APCs and to gain information about the organization of the skin immune system in utero, we investigated the quantitative, phenotypic, and functional development of leukocytes and analyzed the factors that might control their proliferation and trafficking during human skin development.

  • Visualization of changes in solid organ development is less obvious but the effects on function have the same impact as a hand without a thumb. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The steep hyperallometry of organelle volumes and volume-densities across in-pouch growth is consistent with the improved contractile performance of isolated cardiac muscle during fetal development in placental mammals, and is probably critical in augmenting cardiac output to levels necessary for endothermy and independent locomotion in the young kangaroo as it prepares for pouch exit.

  • Functioning of an organ is important for development of the organism. (wikipedia.org)
  • Derived from the Latin puberatum (age of maturity), the word puberty describes the physical changes to sexual maturation, not the psychosocial and cultural maturation denoted by the term adolescent development in Western culture, wherein adolescence is the period of mental transition from childhood to adulthood, which overlaps much of the body's period of puberty. (wikipedia.org)
  • mice
  • Mice with SCIDs have lymphocyte progenitors, but these cells are unable to survive to maturity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some SCID mice are shown to reject skin grafts, so it has been proposed that this disease arises from a leaky mutation, meaning that some mice with SCIDs do in fact have a somewhat functional adaptive immune system. (wikipedia.org)
  • In order to gain a better understanding of the cellular interactions that result in the formation of latent metastasis and decreased survival, we have generated an inducible transgenic mouse model of YFP-expressing ductal carcinoma that develops after sexual maturity in immune-competent mice and is driven by consistent, endocrine-independent oncogene expression.

  • adaptive
  • The dynamic interactions between the severity, overall duration, and repetitive frequency of IH and the level of maturity of the organs and systems at the time of IH will modify the ventilatory, metabolic, and cardiovascular responses to hypoxia and the adaptive (beneficial) or maladaptive (detrimental) consequences after exposure to IH. (frontiersin.org)
  • Evidence
  • In this review article, we primarily focus on providing an impartial overview on the currently available evidence regarding the functional and structural impact of IH in healthy children or pediatric patients. (frontiersin.org)
  • blood
  • The malformations of arthrogryposis can be secondary to environmental factors such as: decreased intrauterine movement, oligohydramnios (low volume or abnormal distribution of intrauterine fluid), and defects in the fetal blood supply. (wikipedia.org)
  • The heart is a muscular organ in most animals, which pumps blood through the blood vessels of the circulatory system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Bones support and protect the various organs of the body, produce red and white blood cells, store minerals, provide structure and support for the body, and enable mobility. (wikipedia.org)
  • Trabecular marrow is composed of a network of rod- and plate-like elements that make the overall organ lighter and allow room for blood vessels and marrow. (wikipedia.org)
  • body
  • citation needed] It facilitates bone's main functions: to support the whole body, protect organs, provide levers for movement, and store and release chemical elements, mainly calcium. (wikipedia.org)
  • mainly
  • The uniqueness of taurine is mainly due to the functional group containing sulfur, the sulfonic group, unlike the carboxylic group typical of all the other natural amino acids. (ukessays.com)
  • all studied the fetal dimensions obtained from spontaneous abortions and pathological pregnancies on mainly formed and fixed specimens. (wikipedia.org)
  • different
  • Each line of mouse has different functional and nonfunctional cells, making each suited for different experiments. (wikipedia.org)
  • Objectives: To briefly outline the effects of taurine on different organs, in order to elucidate the biomedical importance of taurine. (ukessays.com)
  • cells
  • The very distinct environments and niches occupied by these cells give rise to a bewildering heterogeneity of DCs with regard to their phenotype and functional capabilities ( 2 , 3 ). (jimmunol.org)
