Endosymbiosis undone by stepwise elimination of the plastid in a parasitic dinoflagellate.

Organelle gain through endosymbiosis has been integral to the origin and diversification of eukaryotes, and, once gained, plastids and mitochondria seem seldom lost. Indeed, discovery of nonphotosynth...

Subcellular Size.

All of the same conceptual questions about size in organisms apply equally at the level of single cells. What determines the size, not only of the whole cell, but of all of its parts? What ensures tha...

The Magnetohydrodynamic Stagnation Point Flow of a Nanofluid over a Stretching/Shrinking Sheet with Suction.

The magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) stagnation point flow of a nanofluid over a permeable stretching/shrinking sheet is studied. Numerical results are obtained using boundary value problem solver bvp4c in M...

A Novel Smart Microsphere with K+-Induced Shrinking and Aggregating Property Based on Responsive Host-Guest System.

A novel type of smart microspheres with K+-induced shrinking and aggregating properties is designed and developed based on K+-recognition host-guest system. The microspheres are composed of crosslinke...

Dosimetric effects of swelling or shrinking tissue during helical tomotherapy breast irradiation: A phantom study.

During radiation therapy of the female breast, the actual target volume compared to the planning target volume may change due to swelling or shrinking of the tissue. Under- or overdosage is to be expe...

The Benefits of Intracytoplasmic Morphologically Selected Sperm Injection (IMSI) in Couples With Unexplained Infertility

The (motile sperm organelle morphology examination) MSOME allows the detection of sperm vacuoles that seems to be related to sperm DNA damage. The investigators hypothesized that couples ...

Antibiotic Study for Dental Implants

This study is for people at least 21 years old who have signs of problems, like swollen gums and shrinking bones, by dental implants.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The quality of surface form or outline of ORGANELLES.

The quantity of volume or surface area of ORGANELLES.

A form of chronic interstitial nephritis that is endemic to limited areas of BULGARIA, the former YUGOSLAVIA, and ROMANIA. It is characterized by a progressive shrinking of the KIDNEYS that is often associated with uroepithelial tumors.

A culture-specific acute delusional syndrome occurring mostly in the Malay people and Southern Chinese. The syndrome is characterized by the individual's sudden experience of depersonalization depicted by the belief that his penis is shrinking into his abdomen and that he will die when this occurs. Although generally classified as a culture-specific syndrome, koro may be no more than a variant of castration anxiety (ANXIETY, CASTRATION) as it has been described in non-Asian patients.
