DRAIN, TEE (WATER TRAP) definition: A tee drain (water trap) is a device intended to trap and drain water that collects in ventilator tubing during respiratory therapy, thereby preventing an increase in breathing resistance.
Ventilator Condensate Traps definition: Devices designed to collect condensed moisture (i.e., condensate) that accumulates within a breathing circuit (e.g., a ventilator breathing circuit) during heated humidification. They are intended to be used to prevent the condensate from blocking the breathing circuit and/or preventing the inhalation/ingestion of the condensate by the patient.
apoptotic chromosome condensation definition: The compaction of chromatin during apoptosis. [GOC:mah]
chemical condensation definition: a chemical reaction in which two or more molecules combine to form a larger molecule by eliminating a small molecule, such as H2O.
chromosome condensation definition: The progressive compaction of dispersed interphase chromatin into threadlike chromosomes prior to mitotic or meiotic nuclear division, or during apoptosis, in eukaryotic cells. [GOC:mah, ISBN:0815316194]
Chromosome Condensation definition: A process of progressive and tight packing of dispersed replicated interphase chromatin into compact visible nuclear genetic structures - chromosomes - in metaphase prior to mitotic or meiotic nuclear division in preparation for cell division, or during apoptosis in eukaryotic cells.
mitotic chromosome condensation definition: The cell cycle process whereby chromatin structure is compacted prior to mitosis in eukaryotic cells. [GOC:mah, ISBN:0815316194]
N-terminal peptidyl-valine condensation with pyruvate to form N-pyruvic acid 2-iminyl-L-valine definition: The condensation of pyruvate through the 2-oxo group with the N-terminal valine of proteins to form the derivative N-pyruvic acid 2-iminyl-L-valine. [RESID:AA0275]
N-terminal peptidyl-cysteine condensation with pyruvate to form N-pyruvic acid 2-iminyl-L-cysteine definition: The condensation of pyruvate through the 2-oxo group with the N-terminal cysteine of proteins to form the derivative N-pyruvic acid 2-iminyl-L-cysteine. [RESID:AA0274]
cartilage condensation definition: The condensation of mesenchymal cells that have been committed to differentiate into chondrocytes. [ISBN:0878932437]
