ATM Gene definition: This gene is involved in apoptosis, DNA repair and cell cycle regulation.
MONITOR, AIRWAY PRESSURE (INCLUDES GAUGE AND/OR ALARM) definition: An airway pressure monitor is a device used to measure the pressure in a patient's upper airway. The device may include a pressure gauge and an alarm.
GYPA Gene definition: This gene plays a role in erythrocyte regulation.
Underserved, Rural Health definition: This includes rural, elderly, low-literacy, blue collar, and poor populations. Minorities per se are not included but often belong to one or more or the included categories.
Abbott Laboratories (includes Ross Products Division) definition: Abbott Laboratories (includes Ross Products Division)
Bayer Corporation (includes Miles, Inc. and Cutter Laboratories) definition: Bayer Corporation (includes Miles, Inc. and Cutter Laboratories)
Centeon L.L.C. (includes Armour Pharmaceutical Company) definition: Centeon L.L.C. (includes Armour Pharmaceutical Company)
ATM wt Allele definition: Human ATM wild-type allele is located within 11q22-q23 and is approximately 143 kb in length. This allele, which encodes serine-protein kinase ATM protein, plays a critical role in cell cycle checkpoint signaling pathways required for cellular response to DNA damage and maintenance of genomic stability. Defects in the ATM gene cause ataxia telangiectasia and contribute to certain cancers such as T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia and B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas.
GYPA wt Allele definition: Human GYPA wild-type allele is located within 4q28.2-q31.1 and is approximately 31 kb in length. This allele, which encodes glycophorin A protein, is involved in the antigenic determination of M/N and S/s blood groups.
