Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
- less technical term for apoptosis
- ‘The growth of tumors may depend not only on an increase in the fraction of cells that are proliferating, but also on a decrease in the fraction of cells that are undergoing programmed cell death.’
- ‘An important mechanism of this regulation is programmed cell death, known as apoptosis.’
- ‘Apoptosis, programmed cell death, is a physiological process required for normal development and tissue homeostasis in multicellular organisms.’
- ‘The results confirmed widespread infectivity, toxicity and destruction among these cells, probably through apoptosis or programmed cell death.’
- ‘These data suggest that mutations of the out gene disrupt the programmed cell death of the germ cells.’
- ‘Patients with systemic inflammatory response syndrome show a dysregulated expression of programmed cell death in systemic neutrophils.’
- ‘Another potential mechanism involved in macrophage defense against M. tuberculosis is apoptosis or programmed cell death.’
- ‘Although the concept of a programmed death has thus existed for a long time, the term programmed cell death was not used before the 1960s.’
- ‘The other is mitochondrial damage, which can also trigger a programmed cell death via a sequence of steps.’
- ‘Researchers recently discovered a gene essential to one of the plant kingdom's key immune responses - programmed cell death.’
- ‘In contrast, substantial increases in programmed cell death and gliosis develop when the hypoxic exposure is administered in a cyclical fashion.’
- ‘Most cells seem ready to commit to programmed cell death when faced with an unsolvable loss of matrix attachment.’
- ‘Larval tissues such as gut, salivary glands and certain muscles undergo programmed cell death.’
- ‘Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is a physiological suicide mechanism that preserves homeostasis, in which cell death naturally occurs during normal tissue turnover.’
- ‘Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is a continuous process that is vital for the development, propagation, and timely turnover of normal tissues.’
- ‘Neuronal degeneration caused by apoptosis or programmed cell death may have physiologic or pathologic consequences.’
- ‘Histological staining techniques also confirmed that programmed cell death had taken place after the rats had been deprived of REM sleep.’
- ‘It initiates the process of programmed cell death, or apoptosis, which directs the cell to commit suicide, permanently removing the damaged DNA from the organism.’
- ‘A consistent observation in patients with sarcoidosis evolving to fibrosis is the progressive loss of epithelial cells, which undergo programmed cell death.’
- ‘Restricting calories also inhibited potentially disease-causing changes in the immune system, and suppressed apoptosis, or programmed cell death.’
