Analog-Digital Conversion definition: The process of converting analog data such as continually measured voltage to discrete, digital form.
Bed Conversion definition: The reallocation of beds from one type of care service to another, as in converting acute care beds to long term care beds.
Conversion Disorder definition: A disorder whose predominant feature is a loss or alteration in physical functioning that suggests a physical disorder but that is actually a direct expression of a psychological conflict or need.
Electric Countershock definition: An electrical current applied to the HEART to terminate a disturbance of its rhythm, ARRHYTHMIAS, CARDIAC. (Stedman, 25th ed)
electric countershock heart resuscitation definition: electric shock applied to the heart to terminate a disturbance of its rhythm, or to resuscitate.
Cardioversion definition: The conversion of one cardiac rhythm or electrical pattern to another, almost always from an abnormal to a normal one, by pharmacologic means using medications or by electrical cardioversion using a defibrillator.
Gene Conversion definition: The asymmetrical segregation of genes during replication which leads to the production of non-reciprocal recombinant strands and the apparent conversion of one allele into another. Thus, e.g., the meiotic products of an Aa individual may be AAAa or aaaA instead of AAaa, i.e., the A allele has been converted into the a allele or vice versa.
gene conversion definition: the asymmetrical segregation of genes during replication which leads to the production of non-reciprocal recombinant strands and the apparent conversion of one allele into another.
tyrosinase-related protein-2 definition: A recombinant therapeutic agent which is chemically identical to or similar to an endogenous non-mutated melanocyte differentiation antigen expressed by both normal and malignant melanocytes. Vaccinations with recombinant tyrosinase-related protein-2 may elicit an antitumoral cytotoxic T-cell response against tumor cells and some normal cells that express tyrosinase-related protein-2. Check for "http://www.cancer.gov/Search/ClinicalTrialsLink.aspx?id=38407&idtype=1" active clinical trials or "http://www.cancer.gov/Search/ClinicalTrialsLink.aspx?id=38407&idtype=1&closed=1" closed clinical trials using this agent.

Tyrosinase-Related Protein-2 definition: A differentiation antigen expressed in many melanoma cell lines. Peptides from this antigen are used in Vaccine Therapy to elicit an immune response.
Conversion definition: The act of changing the nature, form, function, or purpose of something to another.
CONVERSION TO CREATININE, CREATINE definition: A creatine test system is a device intended to measure creatine (a substance synthesized in the liver and pancreas and found in biological fluids) in plasma, serum, and urine. Measurements of creatine are used in the diagnosis and treatment of muscle diseases and endocrine disorders including hyperthyroidism.
reciprocal meiotic recombination definition: The cell cycle process whereby double strand breaks are formed and repaired through a double Holliday junction intermediate. This results in the equal exchange of genetic material between non-sister chromatids in a pair of homologous chromosomes. These reciprocal recombinant products ensure the proper segregation of homologous chromosomes during meiosis I and create genetic diversity. [PMID:2087779]
Meiotic Recombination definition: Extensive Meiotic Recombination occurs during meiosis when the cell performs a round of DNA replication (meiS) followed by homolog synapsis and recombination that involves breakage of chromosomes or DNA molecules and rejoining of fragments in new combinations.
cell cycle switching, mitotic to meiotic cell cycle definition: The process by which a cell switches cell cycle mode from mitotic to meiotic division. [GOC:ai]
base conversion or substitution editing definition: Any base modification or substitution events that result in alterations in the coding potential or structural properties of RNAs as a result of changes in the base-pairing properties of the modified ribonucleoside(s). [PMID:11092837]
Malignant Conversion definition: The transformation of a cell or cell population from a pre- or non-malignant condition to a malignant condition. (NCI)
cell cycle switching, meiotic to mitotic cell cycle definition: The process by which a cell switches cell cycle mode from meiotic to mitotic division. [GOC:ai]
gene conversion of immunoglobulin genes definition: The somatic process by which immunoglobulin genes are diversified through the mechanism of gene conversion. [GOC:add, PMID:14991701]
Video Image Processors, Format Conversion definition: Video image processors designed to convert video formats (e.g., PAL and NTSC; high-resolution RGB signals played back on low-resolution RGB monitors/projectors; low resolution RGB signals played back on high-resolution RGB monitors/projectors). These devices typically consist of electronic units with capabilities that include automatic input signal recognition, upward and downward conversions, scan line doubling, and other characteristics that improve image quality. Format conversion video image processors are intended to facilitate the operation of multiformat video environments existing in healthcare facilities.
Numeric Conversion definition: The process by which a value is assigned to represent another set of values for ease of evaluation within a particular process.
