Sentences Containing 'notch'

"In vitro" studies show that Notch can influence neurite development.
A key notch—located differently in DDR2 and DDR3 DIMMs—prevents accidentally interchanging them.
A second mechanism is "suppressive maintenance", which explains the role of Notch signaling in pancreas differentiation.
Also, Notch signaling is required during left-right asymmetry determination in vertebrates.
Although a notch filter to suppress the intermodulation products is used at the output of the intercarrier transmitter, the cost of the notch filter is not comparable to the cost of extra amplifiers and the output combiner.

Many studies have indicated that Notch signaling has a major role in endocrine development.
Median line is sometimes marked by a groove from sternal notch to navel.
Modulators of the Notch signal, e.g., the Numb protein are able to antagonize Notch effects, resulting in the halting of cell cycle and differentiation of NPCs.
Not surprisingly, they are also priced a notch higher than other frame makers.
Notch 1, for example, has 36 of these repeats.
Notch and most of its ligands are transmembrane proteins, so the cells expressing the ligands typically must be adjacent to the notch expressing cell for signaling to occur.
Notch is present in all metazoans, and mammals possess four different notch receptors, referred to as NOTCH1, NOTCH2, NOTCH3, and NOTCH4.
Notch signaling and intestinal development.
Notch signaling in adult brain function.
Notch signaling in cardiovascular development.
Notch signaling in central nervous system development and function.

Notch signaling in neuron cell differentiation.
Notch signaling in pancreatic development.
Notch signaling is central to somitogenesis.
Notch signaling is required in the regulation of polarity.
Notch signaling may be used to control the sprouting pattern of blood vessels during angiogenesis.

The Notch binding allows groups of cells to organize themselves, such that, if one cell expresses a given trait, this may be switched off in neighbouring cells by the intercellular notch signal. In this way, groups of cells influence one another to make large structures.
The notch cascade consists of notch and notch ligands, as well as intracellular proteins transmitting the notch signal to the cell's nucleus.
