Diagnosis, Dual (Psychiatry) definition: The co-existence of a substance abuse disorder with a psychiatric disorder. The diagnostic principle is based on the fact that it has been found often that chemically dependent patients also have psychiatric problems of various degrees of severity.
Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitor 3 definition: Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Inhibitor 3, encoded by the CDKN3 gene, is a dual-specificity phosphatase active toward substrates containing either phosphotyrosine or phosphoserine residues. This protein is a cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor and may play a role in cell cycle regulation. It has been shown to interact with, and dephosphorylate CDK2 kinase, thus prevent the activation of CDK2 kinase. Delay of cell cycle progression is dependent on CDKN3 phosphatase activity. This protein also interacts with other cyclin-dependent kinases such as CDC2 and CDK3, but not with CDK4. The CDKN3 gene is deleted, mutated, or overexpressed in several kinds of cancers. Defects in CDKN3 are found in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). (From LocusLink, Swiss-Prot, OMIM and NCI)
CDKN3 Gene definition: This gene plays a role in cell cycle regulation.
Dual X-ray Absorptometry definition: A technique for scanning bone and measuring bone mineral density (BMD). A DXA scanner produces 2 X-ray beams, each with different energy levels. One beam is high energy while the other is low energy. The amount of x-rays that pass through the bone is measured for each beam. This will vary depending on the thickness of the bone. Based on the difference between the 2 beams, the bone density can be measured.
Dual definition: Dual purpose. Defined purposes based on species and breed
Dental Bonding, Chemically-Cured definition: The hardening or polymerization of bonding agents (DENTAL CEMENTS) via chemical reactions, usually involving two components. This type of dental bonding uses a self-cure or dual-cure system.
