(11) c-sis mRNA levels diminished with increased time of infection.
(12) For example, platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) has been found in many normal tissues including the CNS, while minor changes in one of its forms (PDGF-B) converts it to the v-sis oncogene, capable of inducing sarcomas and astrocytomas in primates.
(13) SIS SVB was performed to a variety of vessel combinations using "Y" graft, continuous, or vein extension techniques achieving early patency in all limbs, despite pedal arch disease.
(14) Radiolabeled recombinant PDGF (c-sis) dissociated from Heparin-Sepharose within a concentration range of NaCl similar to that of RF I.
(15) increased cell size, reduced growth rate, megakaryocytic antigens, and expression of the sis proto-oncogene, the structural gene for the B-chain of platelet-derived growth factor.
(16) In human malignant mesothelioma cell lines elevated expression of the platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) beta-chain (c-sis) gene was previously reported, while normal mesothelial cells barely express this gene.
(17) The same temporal dissociation was observed when a recombinant v-sis product was used instead of porcine PDGF.
(18) Reduced function of runt results in female-specific lethality and sexual transformation of XX animals that are heterozygous for Sxl or sis loss-of-function mutations.
(19) Several specific related questions are addressed in this discussion: Is the protein encoded by the v-sis gene functionally identical to PDGF?
(20) This suggests that H-ras is less efficient in relieving the insulin requirement than is sis.
(n.) A female who has the same parents with another person, or who has one of them only. In the latter case, she is more definitely called a half sister. The correlative of brother.
(n.) A woman who is closely allied to, or assocciated with, another person, as in the sdame faith, society, order, or community.
(n.) One of the same kind, or of the same condition; -- generally used adjectively; as, sister fruits.
(v. t.) To be sister to; to resemble closely.
(1) Mother and Sister take over with more nuanced emotional literacy.
(2) No woman is at greater risk for ovarian carcinoma than one who is a member of a hereditary ovarian carcinoma syndrome kindred and whose mother, sister, or daughter has been affected with this disease and with an integrally related hereditary syndrome cancer.
(3) Besides the 15 cases reported in 1984, 6 additional cases of anti-vWF alloantibodies were reported, i.e., one from Spain (a relative of a previously reported case), two from Venezuela (brother and sister) and three from North Carolina (unrelated patients).
(4) Joe Gregory, parked outside the arena while waiting to pick up his girlfriend and her sister from the concert, captured its impact on his car’s dashcam.
(5) In this article, two siblings, a brother and his sister who showed simultaneous occurrence of MDS and monoclonal gammopathy are reported.
(6) Another friend’s sisters told me that the government building where all the students’ records are stored is in an area where there is frequent shelling and air strikes.
(7) Corruption scandals have left few among the Spanish ruling class untainted, engulfing politicians on the left and right of the spectrum, as well as businesses, unions, football clubs and even the king’s sister .
(8) A family of four siblings is described in which two phenotypically female XY children and one male each have developed germ cell tumors, demonstrating that brothers of affected sisters may also be at risk.
(9) I can always spot something for my sisters Gretchen and Amy.
(10) Given his background, Boyle says, growing up in a council house near Bury, with his two sisters (one a twin) and his strict and hard-working parents (his mum worked as a dinner lady at his school), he should by rights have been a gritty social realist, but that tradition never appealed to him.
(11) Biosynthetic studies were performed in a patient with beta-thalassemia intermedia heterozygous for both beta-thalassemia with normal hemoglobins A2 and F and beta-thalassemia with increased Hb A2, in his both parents, one sister and one brother.
(12) Stimulated human phagocytes produce sister chromatid exchanges in cultured mammalian cells by a mechanism involving oxygen metabolites.
(13) These composite data indicated that the definable metabolic defects of these two sisters with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia were the sluggish clearance of cholesterol from the body coupled with low total body synthesis of cholesterol.
(14) RNA fragments are detected that extend into the O gene from the cleavage sites, while the sister fragments that extend into the cII gene cannot be detected and must be eliminated by additional hydrolytic events.
(15) Even more haunting were stories from his wife's village, where the fleeing family found the bodies of her sister and an eight-year-old niece lying in pools of blood.
(16) In the whole group, the recurrence of severe mental subnormality was high: 1 in 8 for brothers and 1 in 25 for sisters.
(17) A 65-year-old hypertensive woman (case 4), an elder sister of case 3, was admitted with subarachnoid hemorrhage.
(18) Growth of cells in medium containing BrdU for two generations allows fluorometric documentation of the semiconservative distribution of newly replicated DNA between sister chromatids, and regions of sister chromated exchange are demarcated.
(19) He just never dreamed it would be life without parole,’ his sister said.
(20) The localization of the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) genome in chromosomes of human B-lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs) transformed with EBV, and the effect of EBV DNA on the level of sister chromatid exchange (SCE) in Bloom's syndrome (BS) B-LCLs, were examined with chromosomal in situ hybridization techniques using a 3H-EBV DNA probe.
