(1) Despite this alteration in subcellular distribution, the mutant polypeptide retained the ability to induce fibroblast transformation by several parameters, including the ability to display anchorage-independent growth.
(2) Engineering and physiologic aspects of growth and production processes associated with encapsulated cells, mostly of anchorage-independent type, are reviewed.
(3) In order to identify these anchorage structures, the non-DNA materials that remain firmly bound to chromosomal DNA under conditions that disintegrate the high salt-stable architecture of nuclei were investigated.
(4) Histologic studies indicated much superior healing and anchorage of the periprosthetic tissue and the pseudointima in the polyethylene oxide-polylactic acid-coated grafts.
(5) The tumorigenic NRK-PT14 cell line requires exogenous epidermal growth factor (EGF), but has lost the requirement for transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) for anchorage-independent growth, compared to normal rat kidney (NRK) cells.
(6) The Authors analyze the force system delivered on the molar and on the anchorage unit.
(7) The increased expression of the enzyme (50-100-times endogenous levels) induced not only cell transformation, but also anchorage-independent growth in soft agar and increased tyrosine phosphorylation of a protein of M(r) 130K.
(8) The appliance provides the orthodontist with an extensive range of options in treatment mechanics--from anchorage conservation and rapid movement of limited tipping by light forces to translation or stabilization with precise three-dimensional control.
(9) Using the osseointegration method, a prospective study was conducted involving seven adult patients who were treated with titanium implants used as rigid anchorage units.
(10) The growth of anchorage-dependent animal cells on microcarriers has enabled treatment of these cell lines as quasi-suspension cultures allowing the production of high cell densities.
(11) This interpretation is strongly supported by the observation that the wasp poison mastoparan, which is known to mimic receptor-mediated activation of certain Gi proteins, also promoted anchorage independence.
(12) Since all of the Epstein-Barr virus-transformed B-cells described here grow in suspension, it is unlikely that the presence of thymosin beta 4 is related to anchorage in these cells.
(13) These findings support the recent notion that spectrin in non-erythroid cells is not essential for maintaining the organization and plasma membrane membrane anchorage of the prominent microfilament bundles.
(14) Besides insufficient bonding of the glass coatings to the substrate and apparent biodegradability of the bioglass coatings in the body, insufficient biomechanical knowledge of endosteal direct anchorage of prosthetic devices is the main reason for failure in these experiments.
(15) Type 1 transforming growth factor beta, on the other hand, inhibited both the anchorage-independent and anchorage-dependent growth of MMEC-myc cells.
(16) The indications for treatment have been stable anchorage of an external hearing aid or a facial episthesis, in the latter case to restore the facial contours after congenital disorders or status after trauma or cancer surgery.
(17) Dermal fibroblasts from patients with the autosomal dominant cancer-prone disease Basal Cell Nevus Syndrome (BCNS) exhibit a serum dependence, anchorage dependence and in vitro lifespan (about 20 population doublings or less) similar to those of fibroblasts from normal age-, race- and sex-matched controls.
(18) It is the objective of the investigations to improve the adherance of the bone cement at the interface to achieve a more durable anchorage of bone cement in the tissue.
(19) Anchorage-independent revertants can be selected, suggesting that the lack of a respiratory chain per se might not be responsible for the inability of mitochondrial DNA-depleted cells to grow in soft agar.
(20) anchorage independent growth) but failed to form tumors in athymic nude mice, even after 3 years in culture (80 passages).
(n.) The falling down of a part through the orifice with which it is naturally connected, especially of the uterus or the rectum.
(v. i.) To fall down or out; to protrude.
(1) In conclusion, abdominal Marlex-mesh rectopexy can be recommended as safe and effective treatment for rectal prolapse, despite some patients developing constipation and some remaining incontinent.
(2) There were two postoperative stomal prolapses, one of which necessitated reoperation.
(3) Faecal incontinence may be due to a trauma, a rectal prolapse, or a neurological disorder.
(4) Iris prolapse did not interfere with the procedure.
(5) Echocardiograms showed good left ventricular function and a large coil of apparent thrombus in the right atrium prolapsing into the right ventricle.
(6) It was not related to a greater degree of dilatation of the tricuspid ring but to more severe septal and right ventricular infarction causing prolapse of the septal and posterior septal leaflets into the right atrium.
(7) Two treatment policies for rectal prolapse were prospectively assessed between April 1986 and January 1989.
(8) The diagnostic accuracy of CT in cases of lumbar disk prolapse was investigated on the basis of a group of 158 of our own patients who were divided into three separate groups.
(9) Findings consistent with aortic regurgitation were identified in 8, and 18 had mitral valve prolapse.
(10) Posterior mitral valve leaflet prolapse is not a frequent anomaly in routinely performed left ventriculography.
(11) For patient management, use of an auscultatory classification may be preferable to the technically generated term "mitral valve prolapse."
(12) Of these 65 donors, 46 had normal studies, nine had pericardial effusions, five had mild septal hypokinesia with otherwise normal function, four had equivocal mitral valve prolapse, and only one heart could not be visualized.
(13) Echocardiography revealed no difference in left ventricular mass index nor prevalence of mitral valve prolapse.
(14) IVP in both the cases of irreducible prolapse and retention of urine revealed hydroureter and hydronephrosis bilaterally.
(15) Recurrence of full-thickness rectal prolapse was found in only 2 patients-(1.5 percent).
(16) This conclusion has been drawn by the authors of this paper from their own therapeutic results obtained from 37 cases of anorectal prolapse in childhood, with therapeutic sclerosing being used in 23 instances.
(17) Forty-seven of the 55 patients (85%) had symptomatic genital prolapse as an indication for trachelectomy.
(18) Echocardiography allowed preoperative classification of MI in 4 groups: Group 1 (n = 46) with prolapse of the posterior leaflet; Group 2 (n = 4) with prolapse of the anterior leaflet; Group 3 (n = 8) with prolapse of both mitral leaflets; Group 4 (n = 2) with abnormalities of the mitral annulus alone.
(19) In the remainder a wide spectrum of abnormalities was found such as prolapse of the mitral valve (in 13.6%), bicuspid aortal valve with a medium regurgitation (4.5%), hypoplasia of the coronary cusp of the aortal valve (4.5%), dilatation of the ascending aorta with a residual significant stenosis at the site after operation of coarctation of the thoracic aorta (4.5%), subaortal defect of the interventricular septum (4.5%) and slight left ventricular hypertrophy in patients with arterial hypertension (9.1%).
(20) Previous studies have shown that systolic annular nonplanarity can cause apparent prolapse in the four chamber view without actual leaflet displacement above the most superior points of the anulus, and there is evidence for such nonplanarity in vivo.
