Summary of "Developmental Biology: Go with the Flow to Keep the Body Straight."

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 And Body Mass Index In Adult Life.

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
