Enkephalin, Methionine definition: One of the endogenous pentapeptides with morphine-like activity. It differs from LEU-ENKEPHALIN by the amino acid METHIONINE in position 5. Its first four amino acid sequence is identical to the tetrapeptide sequence at the N-terminal of BETA-ENDORPHIN.
methemoglobin definition: compound formed from hemoglobin by oxidation of the ferrous to the ferric state with essentially ionic bonds; a small amount is normally present in the blood but injury or toxic agents can convert a larger proportion of hemoglobin to methemoglobin, which does not function reversibly as an oxygen carrier.
Methionine definition: A sulfur containing essential amino acid that is important in many body functions. It is a chelating agent for heavy metals.
methionine definition: primary aminoacid with the side chain -CH2CH2SCH3, which, in the form of its S-adenosyl derivative (SAM), also serves as the principle methyl group donor of biosynthetic pathways.
Methionine definition: Amino acid with side chain -CH2CH2SCH3.
Methionine definition: One of nine essential amino acids in humans (provided by food), Methionine is required for growth and tissue repair. A sulphur-containing amino acid, methionine improves the tone and pliability of skin, hair, and strengthens nails. Involved in many detoxifying processes, sulphur provided by methionine protects cells from pollutants, slows cell aging, and is essential for absorption and bio-availability of selenium and zinc. Methionine chelates heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, aiding their excretion. It also acts as a lipotropic agent and prevents excess fat buildup in the liver. (NCI04)
Metmyoglobin definition: Myoglobin which is in the oxidized ferric or hemin form. The oxidation causes a change in color from red to brown.
methionine C 11 definition: A synthetic amino acid radiolabeled with carbon-11. Acting as a methyl donor, methionine C 11 is incorporated into macromolecules, where it serves as a positron emission tomography (PET) imaging agent for detecting tumors with high rates of protein synthesis. Check for "http://www.cancer.gov/Search/ClinicalTrialsLink.aspx?id=42650&idtype=1" active clinical trials or "http://www.cancer.gov/Search/ClinicalTrialsLink.aspx?id=42650&idtype=1&closed=1" closed clinical trials using this agent.

Oncogene MET definition: The MET oncogene is derived from a chromosomal rearrangement involving the MET and TPR (translocated promoter region) loci and is a cloned gene for Hereditary Papillary Renal Carcinoma. The MET proto-oncogene encodes hepatocyte growth factor receptor, a disulfide-linked two subunit receptor protein tyrosine kinase. The human gene is located at 7q31.
MET Gene definition: This gene plays a regulatory role in the modulation of cell-surface receptors and hepatocyte growth factor interactions.
Hepatocyte Growth Factor Receptor definition: The MET proto-oncogene encodes hepatocyte growth factor receptor, a cell surface receptor-like tyrosine kinase comprised of disulfide-linked 50 kD (alpha) and 145 kD (beta) subunits. In the fully processed c-MET product, the alpha subunit is extracellular, and the beta subunit has extracellular, transmembrane, and tyrosine kinase domains, as well as sites of tyrosine phosphorylation. The beta subunit of the c-MET proto-oncogene product is the cell surface receptor for hepatocyte growth factor. c-MET is related to the insulin receptor and ABL oncogene. (from OMIM 164860 and NCI)
Common MET definition: This message element type is an HL7 common message element type.
MET wt Allele definition: Human MET wild-type allele is located within 7q31 and is approximately 126 kb in length. This allele, which encodes hepatocyte growth factor receptor protein, plays a role in the regulation of cellular tyrosine-kinase activity. Mutations in the MET gene are associated with papillary renal carcinoma.
Metered Powder Dosage Form definition: A powder dosage form that is situated inside a container that has a mechanism to deliver a specified quantity.
POWDER, METERED definition: A powder dosage form that is situated inside a container that has a mechanism to deliver a specified quantity. (NCI)
Metered Spray Dosage Form definition: A non-pressurized dosage form consisting of valves which allow the dispensing of a specified quantity of spray upon each activation.
SPRAY, METERED definition: A non-pressurized dosage form consisting of valves which allow the dispensing of a specified quantity of spray upon each activation. (NCI)
AEROSOL, METERED definition: A pressurized dosage form consisting of metered dose valves which allow for the delivery of a uniform quantity of spray upon each activation. (NCI)
Metered Aerosol Dosage Form definition: A pressurized dosage form consisting of metered dose valves which allow for the delivery of a uniform quantity of spray upon each activation.
GEL, METERED definition: A gel preparation, with metered dose valves, which allow for the delivery of a uniform quantity of gel upon each activation. (FDA)
Metered Gel Dosage Form definition: A gel preparation, with metered dose valves, which allow for the delivery of a uniform quantity of gel upon each activation.
