Beverages definition: Liquids that are suitable for drinking. (From Merriam Webster Collegiate Dictionary, 10th ed)
beverage definition: liquids suitable for drinking.
Cells definition: The fundamental, structural, and functional units or subunits of living organisms. They are composed of CYTOPLASM containing various ORGANELLES and a CELL MEMBRANE boundary.
cell definition: minute protoplasmic masses that make up organized tissue, consisting of a nucleus which is surrounded by protoplasm which contains the various organelles and is enclosed in the cell or plasma membrane; cells are the fundamental, structural, and functional units of living organisms.
cell definition: The individual unit that makes up all of the tissues of the body. All living things are made up of one or more cells.
cell definition: The basic structural and functional unit of all organisms. Includes the plasma membrane and any external encapsulating structures such as the cell wall and cell envelope. [GOC:go_curators]
Cell definition: Anatomical structure which has as its boundary the external surface of a maximally connected plasma membrane. Examples: lymphocyte, fibroblast, erythrocyte, neuron.
Cell definition: Anatomical structure that consists of cytoplasm surrounded by a plasma membrane, with or without the cell nucleus; together with other cells and intercellular matrix, it constitutes tissues. Examples: lymphocyte, fibroblast, erythrocyte, neuron.
Cell definition: The smallest units of living structure capable of independent existence, composed of a membrane-enclosed mass of protoplasm and containing a nucleus or nucleoid.
familial hyperlipoproteinemia type I definition: rare familial condition characterized by massive chylomicronemia and decreased levels of other lipoproteins; due to deficiency of lipoprotein lipase, an alkaline triglyceride hydrolase which catalyzes an important step in the extrahepatic removal of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins from the blood.
Hyperlipoproteinemia Type I definition: An inherited condition due to a deficiency of either LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE or APOLIPOPROTEIN C-II (a lipase-activating protein). The lack of lipase activities results in inability to remove CHYLOMICRONS and TRIGLYCERIDES from the blood which has a creamy top layer after standing.
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy definition: A syndrome characterized by severe burning pain in an extremity accompanied by sudomotor, vasomotor, and trophic changes in bone without an associated specific nerve injury. This condition is most often precipitated by trauma to soft tissue or nerve complexes. The skin over the affected region is usually erythematous and demonstrates hypersensitivity to tactile stimuli and erythema. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1360; Pain 1995 Oct;63(1):127-33)
Somatotypes definition: Particular categories of body build, determined on the basis of certain physical characteristics. The three basic body types are ectomorph (thin physique), endomorph (rounded physique), and mesomorph (athletic physique).
Cyclin A definition: A cyclin subtype that has specificity for CDC2 PROTEIN KINASE and CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASE 2. It plays a role in progression of the CELL CYCLE through G1/S and G2/M phase transitions.
type A/type B personality definition: type A is competitive, hard-driving, time-conscious, and aggressive; type B is the opposite: relaxed, unhurried, satisfied, and serene; type A has been claimed to be more prone to coronary disease, but this remains controversial.
De Lange Syndrome definition: A syndrome characterized by growth retardation, severe MENTAL RETARDATION, short stature, a low-pitched growling cry, brachycephaly, low-set ears, webbed neck, carp mouth, depressed nasal bridge, bushy eyebrows meeting at the midline, hirsutism, and malformations of the hands. The condition may occur sporadically or be associated with an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance or duplication of the long arm of chromosome 3. (Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p231)
Cornelia De Lange Syndrome definition: A rare syndrome characterized by low birth weight, delayed growth, mental retardation, behavioral problems, and a distinctive facial appearance (thin, arched eyebrows, low set ears, small teeth, and small nose). The majority of cases are caused by mutations in the NIPBL gene. Less severe forms of the syndrome are caused by mutations in the SMC1A and SMC3 genes.
de Lange syndrome 1 definition: A frequent multiple congenital anomaly/mental retardation syndrome of unknown etiology which affects 1/10,000 newborn infants. The most commonly occurring defects include growth deficiency, retarded psychomotor development, upper limb abnormalities, microbrachycephaly, and peculiar hair patterns giving the face its characteristic appearance, frequently associated with various neurological, behavioral, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, dermatoglyphic abnormalities, and occasional Sandifer anomaly (abnormal body posturing, torticollis, and gastro-esophageal reflux with or without a hiatus hernia). The phenotype is variable and the affected infants may show different clusters of abnormalities. A proposed classification identifies three distinct categories of this syndrome: Type I (classic) is marked by prenatal growth deficiency becoming more severe after birth, moderate to profound psychomotor retardation, and severe malformations usually leading to disability or death; Type II (mild) is characterized by facial and skeletal abnormalities which are similar to those in Type I but are much less severe, moderate pre- and postnatal growth retardation, and the absence of major malformations; and Type III in which phenotypic manifestations are related to chromosomal aneuploidies or teratogenic factors. The syndrome was first observed in Amsterdam, hence its synonyms Amsterdam dwarf, Amsterdam type, and typus amstelodamensis. Manifestations of duplication of the long arm of chromosome 3 are similar to those in de Lange syndrome. Intrauterine growth retardation, prominent philtrum, proximally placed thumbs, oligodactyly, and phocomelia are more frequent in de Lange syndrome, while craniosynostosis, cleft palate, and urinary tract anomalies are more common in dup(3q). Most de Lange syndrome patients have normal chromosomes.

Blood Group A definition: A blood group indicating the presence on erythrocytes of only the A form of the H Antigen.
cell type definition: used for classifying cell types, discovery of new cell types, or when type of cell is unknown; when comparing types of cells use CELL POPULATION STUDY.

Cytochrome a Group definition: Cytochromes (electron-transporting proteins) in which the heme prosthetic group is heme a, i.e., the iron chelate of cytoporphyrin IX. (From Enzyme Nomenclature, 1992, p539)
Blood Type definition: The specific reaction pattern of erythrocytes of an individual to the antisera of one blood group; e.g., the ABO blood group consists of four major blood types: O, A, B, and AB. This classification depends on the presence or absence of two major antigens: A or B. Type O occurs when neither is present and type AB when both are present. The blood type is the genetic phenotype of the individual for one blood group system and may be determined using different antisera available for testing.
Derivation Type definition: The type of Derived Data Element that is being created. For example a Data Element that is derived/created by subtracting two dates represented by other data elements would be a Calculated Representation Type. Types include: Calculated, Complex Recode, Compound, Concatenation, Object Class, and Simple Recode.

The type of application is determined by the nature of the regulated product it supports, the phase of the product development, and other factors.
