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.

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 ...

... 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 ...

Evolution and hatchery populations

... thinks they are dealing with here. How do they differentiate the groups in a wild-caught population? Is it collection times, size (quicker maturation doesn't necessarily mean smaller breeders), or some other attribute? There's so much here that's unclear. If it's collection times, they ...

Learning tissue culture, specifically moDC generation

... have an access to a cytometer, use of antibodies for something like CD14, CD83 and CD86 (if I recall correctly) helps to evaluate the degree of maturation of your cells. Disclaimer: the above is written based on what I remember of my past protocols, so some errors may exist. Check the study ...
