Maturation value

maturation value

An indicator of the level of maturation attained by vaginal epithelium and used as a factor in cytohormonal evaluation from the maturation index by valuing the parabasal cells at 0.0, the intermediate cells at 0.5, and the superficial cells at 1.0; for special investigations, subtypes of a major cell can be given different values's.

Re: The evolution of facilitation and semelparity

... life cycle will be completed in a year or less, and thus we might presume that during this time, it has to go about its business of development, maturation and reproduction. Typically such a species will be growing throughout its life and reproducing only near the end of its life cycle, producing ...

Animal cell nucleus shape changes

... cell matures. This is well evident in, for example, neutrophilic leukocytes whose nuclei become lobular and very irregular-shaped during the cell maturation (but still follows a defined and controlled pathway). Another good example is the red blood cell, who has a nucleus in immature stages (erythroblast) ...

Idea to determine order of assembly of spliceosome

... is unknown to us prior to the appearance of incremental increase of mass). The mass should continue to increase with specific amounts during the maturation. Re-running this test should show a similar pattern of mass increase at specific points in time if it is the snRNP:s mass increase we are ...

Re:

... they replicate? Or do white blood cells turn to red when they age? Immature red blood cells each contain a nucleus, containing DNA. However, upon maturation they then lose their nuclei (due to certain proteins disposing of it), with this they lose their DNA. They do this to make more room for ...
