Basal rod

Basal rod --> costa

(Science: microbiology) rod shaped intracellular organelle lying below the undulating membrane of Trichomonas.

generates active bending associated with local loss of birefringence at the bending zone, probably as a result of conformational change in the longitudinal lamellae. Major protein approximately 90 kd.

improved glucose tolerance in non obese type 2 diabetic rats

... as measured by an ITT, was not significantly different between diabetic groups and the normal groups respectively after surgery. No differences in basal glucose and glucose tolerance were noted between non-diabetic operated animals and control non-diabetic rats. No differences were recorded between ...

Avian and ratite medullary bone

... is a very brittle and fragile type of bone that the spicules of medullary bone easily separated from the originating layer, but why the thin basal layer remains attached to the cortex? Did it have any mechanical strength or the thin basal layer of medullary bone will eventually completely ...

what is the difference between promoter and enhancer

... sequence like TATA box in eukaryote or prinbow box in prokaryotes, which initiates the transcription by unwinding the DNA. Apart from the basal promoter, there are unique upstream promoter sequences which attract other sequence-specific transcription factors and help construct the transcription ...

the starvation mode starts already in the morning, that is, when you do not eat say 12 hours or even fewer BMR = basal metabolic rate or base metabolic rate and the rate is controlled by relative hormonal signaling patterns. Your body does not turn down BMR after only a day or ...
