Cerebellar Nuclei definition: Four accumulations of gray substance embedded in the white substance of the cerebellum, comprising the nucleus dentatus, nucleus emboliformis, nucleus globosus, and nucleus fastigii. (Dorland, 28th ed)
cerebellar nuclei definition: four accumulations of gray substance embedded in the white substance of the cerebellum from which most of the efferent fibers of the cerebellum arise; comprised of the nucleus dentatus, nucleus emboliformis, nucleus globosus, and nucleus fastigii.
Drive definition: A state of internal activity of an organism that is a necessary condition before a given stimulus will elicit a class of responses; e.g., a certain level of hunger (drive) must be present before food will elicit an eating response.
Transmembrane Protein definition: A protein that is an integral membrane protein with a transmembrane region.
Intrinsic Factor definition: A glycoprotein secreted by the cells of the GASTRIC GLANDS that is required for the absorption of VITAMIN B 12 (cyanocobalamin). Deficiency of intrinsic factor leads to VITAMIN B 12 DEFICIENCY and ANEMIA, PERNICIOUS.
intrinsic factor definition: glycoprotein secreted by the cells of the gastric glands that is required for the absorption of Vitamin B12.
Internal definition: Happening or arising or located within some limits, or especially, within some surface.
Inner definition: Inside or closer to the inside of the body or object.
Positive-Pressure Respiration, Intrinsic definition: Non-therapeutic positive end-expiratory pressure occurring frequently in patients with severe airway obstruction. It can appear with or without the administration of external positive end-expiratory pressure (POSITIVE-PRESSURE RESPIRATION). It presents an important load on the inspiratory muscles which are operating at a mechanical disadvantage due to hyperinflation. Auto-PEEP may cause profound hypotension that should be treated by intravascular volume expansion, increasing the time for expiration, and/or changing from assist mode to intermittent mandatory ventilation mode. (From Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 12th ed, p1127)
Sleep Disorders, Intrinsic definition: Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)

The intrinsic rigidity of the DNA double helix is usually modeled in terms of the resistance to distortion of vertical base stacking interactions ( 1 – 6 ).

RESULTS The meroduplex helix, [ me A] n –dT n , possesses essentially the same intrinsic rigidity as the full duplex, dA n –dT n In the absence of added me A, the gapped duplex, 100 dT 24 , is substantially more flexible than its full duplex (100 bp) counterpart, due to the dT 24 segment at the center of the molecule.

Janine B. Mills et al.

Nucleic Acids Research 32 (13), 2004

However, due to the uncertain hydrodynamic character of the ends of the meroduplex, which lack the second phosphodiester backbone, it was not possible to further refine the estimate for its intrinsic rigidity.

Janine B. Mills et al.

Nucleic Acids Research 32 (13), 2004

More recently, we have developed a gapped-duplex system for measuring the intrinsic (relative) rigidities of single-stranded DNA and RNA molecules ( 16 ).
