Sorry, no etymologies found.
"septation" in the simlar manner, although tetration, perhaps, already has growth fast enough for the requests of XXI century.
Medicine researchers found that retinoic acid (RA), a derivative of vitamin A, regulates the SHF tissue formation and the septation, or division, of the outflow tract into the ascending aorta and the pulmonary artery.
Problems in SHF development can also compromise the septation process resulting in a single outflow vessel - a condition known as persistent truncus arteriosus.
My laboratory utilizes modern genetic and cell biological techniques to elucidate developmental and molecular mechanisms of aortic arch artery patterning and cardiac outflow tract elongation and septation.
Ultrasound examination revealed thickening of gallbladder wall with abnormal septation around liver bed.
Our data suggest that the overexpression of the Bub2 fusion protein acts as a dominant negative, leading to septation defects by a mechanism that is Tem1-dependent.
They then wanted to determine whether Tbx5 was really a main regulator of septation or merely a bystander.
This meant that the gradient of Tbx5 forms later and less sharply in the turtle than in species with a clear septum, such as mammals, providing a tantalizing clue about how septation evolved.
"This really nailed the importance of Tbx5 in patterning the heart to allow septation to occur," said Dr. Bruneau.
2A B'-regulatory subunit par1p is implicated in regulation of the S. pombe septation initiation network.
