Boranes definition: The collective name for the boron hydrides, which are analogous to the alkanes and silanes. Numerous boranes are known. Some have high calorific values and are used in high-energy fuels. (From Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)
borane definition: any of a series of boron hydrides based on the BH3 unit.
Boron definition: A trace element with the atomic symbol B, atomic number 5, and atomic weight 10.81. Boron-10, an isotope of boron, is used as a neutron absorber in BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY.
boron definition: highly reactive nonmetallic trace element with the atomic symbol B, atomic number 5, and atomic weight 10.81; boron 10 is a stable isotope that emits gamma rays after neutron capture and is used in radiation detectors.
Boron definition: An element with atomic symbol B, atomic number 5, and atomic weight 11.
Boron Compounds definition: Inorganic or organic compounds that contain boron as an integral part of the molecule.
Boron Neutron Capture Therapy definition: A technique for the treatment of neoplasms, especially gliomas and melanomas in which boron-10, an isotope, is introduced into the target cells followed by irradiation with thermal neutrons.
boron neutron capture therapy definition: A type of radiation therapy. The person is given an intravenous infusion containing the element boron, which concentrates in the tumor cells. The person then receives radiation therapy with atomic particles called neutrons from a small research nuclear reactor. The radiation is absorbed by the boron, killing the tumor cells without harming normal cells.
Boron Neutron Capture Therapy definition: A type of radiation therapy in which the patient is given an intravenous boron infusion that is absorbed by tumor cells. Radiation is then directed at the boron, killing the tumor cells but not the surrounding normal tissue.
boron binding definition: Interacting selectively with boron, the group 13 element with properties which are borderline between metals and non-metals. [http://www.webelements.com/]
boron transporter activity definition: Catalysis of the transport of boron across a membrane against the concentration gradient. [PMID:12447444]
boron transport definition: The directed movement of boron into, out of, within or between cells. Boron is a group 13 element, with properties which are borderline between metals and non-metals. [http://www.webelements.com/]
response to boron definition: A change in state or activity of a cell or an organism (in terms of movement, secretion, enzyme production, gene expression, etc.) as a result of a boron stimulus. [GOC:sm]
Boron Delivery Agent definition: Agents used in Boron Neutron Capture Therapy, a type of radiotherapy, as boron (boron-10) carriers.
Dietary Boron definition: Forms of the element boron found in foods.
B3+ definition: Boron ion requiring three electrons to return to its elemental state.
cellular response to boron levels definition: A change in state or activity of a cell (in terms of movement, secretion, enzyme production, gene expression, etc.) as a result of a stimulus reflecting the presence, absence, or concentration of boron. [PMID:18952773]
