It has long been noticed that zebrafish defective in ciliary beating develop abnormal body curvatures. Recently, insights into how cilia keep the body straight have emerged, with implications for understanding human scoliosis.

Peak flow variability in childhood is a significant and independent predictor of subsequent body mass index increase up to age 26. Shared developmental and genetic factors may explain, at least in par...
Many fish generate thrust by undulating one or multiple elongated fins while keeping their body straight. This propulsion mechanism has stimulated interest in both biology and bio-inspired marine prop...
Multicellular animals and plants represent independent evolutionary experiments with complex multicellular bodyplans. Differences in their life history, a mobile versus sessile lifestyle, and predomin...
Masculine overcompensation-a phenomenon where men react to masculinity threats by endorsing hypermasculine ideals-has been demonstrated among straight men but has yet to be examined among gay men. The...
This study aims to use tissue from deceased organ donors to investigate organ physiology, developmental biology, as well as the development of future regenerative cellular therapies. It wi...
Human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) are isolated from the early human embryo and have the capability to proliferate indefinitely in culture and to develop into nearly every cell of the huma...
The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility, acceptability and effectiveness of implementing the AAP's recommendation that clinicians provide developmental surveillance at all ...
This is a research study of the investigational drug, Pagoclone, in the treatment of persistent developmental stuttering (PDS), which includes frequent repetitions or prolongations of soun...
Developmental dyslexia is a frequent learning disability. The aim of this study is to compare auditory evoked cortical responses to syllables and tones in developmental dyslexia and contro...
The field of biology which deals with the process of the growth and differentiation of an organism.
The flow of BLOOD through or around an organ or region of the body.
A species of SEA URCHINS in the family Strongylocentrotidae found on the Pacific coastline from Alaska to Mexico. This species serves as a major research model for molecular developmental biology and other fields.
The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
Methods used to temporarily or permanently block the flow of BODY FLUIDS through various ducts and tubules throughout the body, including BLOOD VESSELS and LYMPHATIC VESSELS such as by THERAPEUTIC EMBOLIZATION or LIGATION.
Arthritis Fibromyalgia Gout Lupus Rheumatic Rheumatology is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and management of disease involving joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments and associated structures (Oxford Medical Diction...
