FORK, TUNING definition: A tuning fork is a mechanical device which resonates at a given frequency and is used to diagnose hearing disorders and to test for vibratory sense.
FORK definition: An orthopedic manual surgical instrument is a nonpowered hand-held device intended for medical purposes to manipulate tissue, or for use with other devices in orthopedic surgery. This generic type of device includes the cerclage applier, awl, bender, drill brace, broach, burr, corkscrew, countersink, pin crimper, wire cutter, prosthesis driver, extractor, file, fork, needle holder, impactor, bending or contouring instrument, compression instrument, passer, socket positioner, probe, femoral neck punch, socket pusher, reamer, rongeur, scissors, screwdriver, bone skid, staple driver, bone screw starter, surgical stripper, tamp, bone tap, trephine, wire twister, and wrench.
DNA Replication Fork definition: DNA replication is a process that allows two new double helixes of DNA to be created from one double helix. During replication, Y-shaped regions of replicating DNA molecules are mobilized, where the enzymes replicating a DNA molecule bind to an untwisted, single DNA strand. This Y-shaped region is referred to as a replication fork. Bacteria and viruses only process one replication fork at a time, while eukaryotic DNA has many replication forks moving along DNA strands at the same time.
replication fork definition: The Y-shaped region of a replicating DNA molecule, resulting from the separation of the DNA strands and in which the synthesis of new strands takes place. Also includes associated protein complexes. [GOC:mah, ISBN:0198547684]
replication fork arrest definition: Any process that stops, prevents or reduces the frequency, rate or extent of DNA replication by impeding the progress of the DNA replication fork. [GOC:jl, PMID:14645529]
replication fork barrier binding definition: Interacting selectively with replication fork barriers, sites that inhibit the progress of replication forks. [GOC:mah]
replication fork processing definition: The process by which a DNA replication fork that has stalled (due to DNA damage, DNA secondary structure, bound proteins, dNTP shortage, or other causes) is repaired and replication is restarted. [PMID:11459955, PMID:15367656, PMID:17660542]
replication fork protection complex definition: A protein complex conserved in eukaryotes and associated with the replication fork; the complex stabilizes stalled replication forks and is thought to be involved in coordinating leading- and lagging-strand synthesis and in replication checkpoint signaling. [PMID:15367656]
cytoplasmic replication fork definition: The Y-shaped region of a cytoplasmic replicating DNA molecule, resulting from the separation of the DNA strands and in which the synthesis of new strands takes place. Also includes associated protein complexes. [GOC:jl, GOC:mtg_sensu]
nuclear replication fork definition: The Y-shaped region of a nuclear replicating DNA molecule, resulting from the separation of the DNA strands and in which the synthesis of new strands takes place. Also includes associated protein complexes. [GOC:jl, GOC:mtg_sensu]
replication fork arrest at rDNA repeats definition: A process that impedes the progress of the DNA replication fork at natural replication fork pausing sites within the eukaryotic rDNA repeat spacer. [GOC:mah, GOC:vw]
Forkhead Box Protein C2 definition: The human forkhead box C2 protein (501aa, ~53 kDa) is encoded by the forkhead box C2 gene (FOXC2). The protein is involved in the formation of special mesenchymal tissues, and has been isolated in the nucleus. The protein also plays a role in adipocyte metabolism by increasing the sensitivity of the beta-adremergic CAMP protein kinase A.
replication fork protection definition: Any process that prevents the collapse of stalled replication forks. [GOC:vw, PMID:14560029]
replication fork processing at rDNA locus definition: The process by which a DNA replication fork that has stalled at the rDNA replication fork barrier (RFB) is repaired and replication is restarted. [GOC:vw]
