Dental Plaque definition: A film that attaches to teeth, often causing DENTAL CARIES and GINGIVITIS. It is composed of MUCINS, secreted from salivary glands, and microorganisms.

Plaque definition: A biofilm that contains numerous microorganisms that adheres to the teeth.
Dental Plaque Index definition: An index which scores the degree of dental plaque accumulation.
atherosclerotic plaque definition: yellowish plaques containing cholesterol, lipoid material, and lipophages formed within the intima and inner media of large and medium-sized arteries in atherosclerosis.
Atherosclerotic Plaque definition: Fatty tissue which is deposited in the inner lining of the arterial wall.
ATHEROSCLEROTIC PLAQUE definition: Fatty tissue which is deposited in the inner lining of the arterial wall. (NCI)
Leukoplakia definition: A white patch lesion found on a MUCOUS MEMBRANE that cannot be scraped off. Leukoplakia is generally considered a precancerous condition, however its appearance may also result from a variety of HEREDITARY DISEASES.
leukoplakia definition: (loo-ko-PLAY-kee-a) A white patch that may develop on mucous membranes such as the cheek, gums, or tongue and may become cancerous.
Leukoplakia definition: A white patch or plaque on a mucous membrane that cannot be characterized clinically or pathologically as any other disease. The diagnosis of leukoplakia is one of exclusion; other conditions such as candidiasis, lichen planus, leukoedema, etc. must be ruled out before a diagnosis of leukoplakia can be made. Leukoplakia may be a premalignant condition. --2004
Plaque Assay definition: Method for measuring viral infectivity and multiplication in cultured cells. Clear lysed areas or plaques develop as the viral particles are released from the infected cells during incubation. With some viruses, the cells are killed by a cytopathic effect; with others, the infected cells are not killed but can be detected by their hemadsorptive ability. Sometimes the plaque cells contain viral antigens which can be measured by immunofluorescence.

focal adhesion definition: Small region on the surface of a cell that anchors the cell to the extracellular matrix and that forms a point of termination of actin filaments. [ISBN:0124325653, ISBN:0815316208]
Focal Adhesions definition: An anchoring junction of the cell to a non-cellular substrate. It is composed of a specialized area of the plasma membrane where bundles of MICROFILAMENTS terminate and attach to the transmembrane linkers, INTEGRINS, which in turn attach through their extracellular domains to EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX PROTEINS.
apical hemi-adherens junction definition: A cell-substrate adherens junction found in the apical region of a cell, such as those found in cuticle-secreting epithelia, which connect the apical membrane to the cuticle. [GOC:mah, PMID:11700298]
Billion Plaque Forming Units definition: A measure of viable infectious entities expressed in billions in the specimen or product defined as the smallest quantity that can produce a cytopathic effect in the host cell culture challenged with the defined inoculum, visible under the microscope or/and to the naked eye as a plaque.
Million Plaque Forming Units definition: A measure of viable infectious entities expressed in millions in the specimen or product defined as the smallest quantity that can produce a cytopathic effect in the host cell culture challenged with the defined inoculum, visible under the microscope or/and to the naked eye as a plaque.
