Sorry, no etymologies found.
So, I guess, especially after Vicki Lundblad did her work, which I think was really the first experimental work showing that telomere maintenance was essential for avoiding senescence and therefore all of the other things that would follow from that, it became obvious that a lot of people were going to come into this field and move it forward in mammalian systems and explore the linkage to aging and cancer.
Prions are propagated in mammalian brains and not in cell culture used to make vaccines.
I'd been following developments in mammalian cloning since Dolly, the sheep, was cloned in 1999.
Our results provide the first evidence for endogenization of non-retroviral virus-derived elements in mammalian genomes and give novel insights not only into generation of endogenous elements, but also into a role of bornavirus as a source of genetic novelty in its host.
They cite evidence for endogenization of non-retroviral virus-derived elements in mammalian genomes i.e. endogenous Borna-like N elements (EBLN).
Enterodiol and enterolactone are called mammalian lignans because bacteria synthesize these lignans in the mammalian colon from plant lignans.
Melatonin, an ancient hormone which is produced during darkness serves a large number of functions in mammalian bodies (and i suspect other animals as well) and the body's own melatonin can be a useful malignancy fighter.
Similarly, inserting the moss gene in mammalian cells resulted in reversing some of the losses experienced by animal cells lacking PS function, testifying that the human and moss proteins had an evolutionary conserved function.
Capecchi demonstrated that homologous recombination could take place between introduced DNA and the chromosomes in mammalian cells.
Capecchis research has uncovered the roles of genes involved in mammalian organ development and in the establishment of the body plan.
