Another case of sirenomelia with a reciprocal translocation 46X, t(X;16) (p11.23;p12.3) has also been reported; however, the chromosomal breakpoints on the pairs of chromosomes did not disrupt the coding genes associated with early human development, especially with blastogenesis [19].
12 of 15 patients (80.0%) completing the protocol had an increased immune response to PSA as determined with a Lymphocyte Blastogenesis Assay.
Measurement of Candida-specific blastogenesis: comparison of carboxyfluorescein succinimidyl ester labelling of Tcells, thymidine incorporation, and CD69 expression.
separated mononuclear cell blastogenesis in calves: time-dependent changes after shipping.
This latter reproduction, also known as palleal budding (Oka and Watanabe, 1959) or blastogenesis (Brunetti, 1976), occurs on the outer epithelial mantle of a zooid, typically on both of its sides, thus producing two offspring.
In spite of the ambiguity, IVIg, in pre- and posttransplant patients, is considered to reduce T cell activation and proliferation (blastogenesis) in allograft recipient, and to suppress the production of anti-allograft Abs, biopsy-proven T cell-mediated allograft rejection and T-lymphoproliferative disorders developed posttransplantation [55, 56].
Reduced blood flow and focal haemorrhage in the developmental region of the first and second branchial arches in the blastogenesis period results in defect in mesoderm formation and its defective interaction with the neural crest cells [4].
The phenomenon is a "developmental field defect" occurring in the blastogenesis phase and not just a statistical clustering.
It derives from a defect of blastogenesis involving primarily aural, oral, and mandibular development, resulting in microtia, mandibular hypoplasia, vertebral anomalies, and epibulbar dermoid/lipodermoids.
Effects of Plant Juices on T Cell Blastogenesis. To Investigate the effects of plant juices on T cell proliferation, freshly isolated T cells were suspended in RPMI-1640 medium, seeded in 96-well round bottom plate (TPP, tissue culture testplate 96U, Switzerland), and cultured in the presence of 5 [micro]g/ml of phytohemagglutinin (PHA, Gibco, USA) used as mitogen that induces the proliferation of responder cells.
Mitosis is aimed for the duplication of cell number in embryogenesis and blastogenesis of plant and animals.
(5) It is thought that this OEIS complex results from a single defect of early blastogenesis or defect of a caudal mesodermal migration during primitive streak period that later contributes to the formation of infra umblical mesenchyme, cloacal septum and vertebrae.
