Aid to Families with Dependent Children definition: Financial assistance provided by the government to indigent families with dependent children who meet certain requirements as defined by the Social Security Act, Title IV, in the U.S.
Calmodulin definition: A heat-stable, low-molecular-weight activator protein found mainly in the brain and heart. The binding of calcium ions to this protein allows this protein to bind to cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases and to adenyl cyclase with subsequent activation. Thereby this protein modulates cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP levels.
calmodulin definition: intracellular protein that mediates the calcium dependence of many enzymes and cell functions.
Dependent Personality Disorder definition: A personality disorder characterized by a pervasive and excessive need to be taken care of that leads to submissive and clinging behavior and fears of separation, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts. (From DSM-IV, 1994)
Methylenetetrahydrofolate Dehydrogenase (NAD+) definition: A NAD-dependent oxidoreductase that catalyzes the conversion of 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to 5,10-methenyl-tetrahdyrofolate. It has been found in a variety of microorganisms.
26S ATP-Dependent Proteasome definition: Proteasomes are large multicatalytic proteolytic complexes found in all eukaryotic cells, and simpler forms have been found in archaebacteria and certain eubacteria. In eukaryotes, the 20S proteasome also exists as the central core of the 26S (2000 kDa) proteasome complex, which catalyzes the degradation of ubiquitin-conjugated proteins and contains an additional 19S complex, composed of regulatory proteins and six ATPases.
3-Phosphoinositide Dependent Protein Kinase-1 definition: 3-Phosphoinositide Dependent Protein Kinase-1, encoded by the PDPK1 gene, belongs to the Ser/Thr family of protein kinases. This protein phosphorylates and activates not only PKB/AKT, but also PKA, PKC-zeta, p70S6K and p90S6K/RSK. It may play a general role in signaling processes and in development (by similarity). It becomes cytoplasmic and membrane-associated after cell stimulation leading to its translocation. Tyrosine phosphorylation seems to occur only at the plasma membrane. Three isoforms exist from alternative splicing and Isoform 3 is catalytically inactive. (from LocusLink)
DNA-dependent ATPase activity definition: Catalysis of the reaction: ATP + H2O = ADP + phosphate in the presence of single- or double-stranded DNA; drives another reaction. [EC:3.6.1.3, GOC:jl]
5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate-dependent methyltransferase activity definition: Catalysis of the transfer of a methyl group to an acceptor molecule; dependent on the presence of 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate. [GOC:ai]
actin-dependent ATPase activity definition: Catalysis of the reaction: ATP + H2O = ADP + phosphate, requiring the presence of an actin filament to accelerate release of ADP and phosphate. [GOC:mah]
5-methyltetrahydrofolate-dependent methyltransferase activity definition: Catalysis of the transfer of a methyl group to an acceptor molecule; dependent on the presence of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate. [GOC:ai]
age-dependent telomere shortening definition: Progressive reduction in length of the telomeres, the termini of eukaryotic chromosomes, that occurs as part of the cellular aging process. [GOC:jh, PMID:9891807]
age-dependent response to reactive oxygen species 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 reactive oxygen species, where the change varies according to the age of the cell or organism. [GOC:jh, PMID:12044938]
PDPK1 Gene definition: This gene plays a role in cellular signaling and development.
dose-dependent definition: Refers to the effects of treatment with a drug. If the effects change when the dose of the drug is changed, the effects are said to be dose-dependent.
handicapped dependent definition: Covered party is a dependent of the policy holder with a physical or mental disability causing a disadvantage that makes independent achievement unusually difficult.
sponsored dependent definition: Covered party is an individual that the policy holder has assumed responsibility for, such as foster child or legal ward.
family dependent definition: The player of the role is dependent of the scoping entity.
Dependent Ambulation definition: To move about or walk on foot with the use of aids.
anaphase-promoting complex-dependent proteasomal ubiquitin-dependent protein catabolic process definition: The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the breakdown of a protein or peptide by hydrolysis of its peptide bonds, initiated by the covalent attachment of ubiquitin, with ubiquitin-protein ligation catalyzed by the anaphase-promoting complex, and mediated by the proteasome. [PMID:15380083]
SCF-dependent proteasomal ubiquitin-dependent protein catabolic process definition: The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the breakdown of a protein or peptide by hydrolysis of its peptide bonds, initiated by the covalent attachment of ubiquitin, with ubiquitin-protein ligation catalyzed by an SCF (Skp1/Cul1/F-box protein) complex, and mediated by the proteasome. [PMID:15380083]
Conditional definition: Subject to, implying, or dependent upon something else; not absolute.
Double Dependent Locality definition: A locality or minor thoroughfare the address for which must be specified in relationship to a more major one.
2-oxoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase activity definition: Hydroxylase, with 2-oxoglutarate as one donor, and incorporation or reduction of one atom each of oxygen into both donors. [EC:1.14.11.-, PMID:16140259]
ADP-specific glucokinase activity definition: Catalysis of the reaction: ADP + D-glucose = AMP + D-glucose 6-phosphate. [EC:2.7.1.147, IMG:01468]
ADP-specific phosphofructokinase activity definition: Catalysis of the reaction: ADP + D-fructose 6-phosphate = AMP + D-fructose 1,6-bisphosphate. [EC:2.7.1.146, IMG:01469]
dependant definition: Dépendant.
