The neurons of the autonomic system innervate gland cells, cardiac muscle, and smooth muscle to regulate physiologic functions
such as sweating, blood pressure, and heart rate.
Researchers are examining these foods, isolating and characterizing chemical components, structures and physiologic function
However, in order to overcome the first of two major setbacks of any organ transplantation -- immunologic rejection and long-term physiologic function
of the transplanted organ -- pigs would have to be genetically altered by incorporating human genetic material directly in their genome.
In a new study, xenoestrogenic alkylphenols and bisphenol A (BPA) interfered with normal estrogenic signaling in vitro, which suggests they could disrupt normal physiologic function
at critical life stages [EHP 119(1):104-112; Jeng and Watson].
Wingate points out that one study found inactivity caused a one percent decrease in physiologic function
Although the specific function(s) of sleep are still controversial, NREM sleep is thought to be related to homeostatic processes, replenishing some physiologic function
PET/CT improved evaluation of normal physiologic function
in the neck and improved localization and differentiation of postoperative changes versus tumor recurrence.
Calpain: Novel family members, activation, and physiologic function
Currently, none of the FDA-approved, IOP-lowering medications directly target this tissue, so INS117548 may provide a novel approach for lowering IOP by directly enhancing the physiologic function
of the trabecular meshwork.
In the oropharynx, normal physiologic function
of the salivary glands involves: (1) lubrication, (2) enhancement of digestion through enzymatic and mechanical manipulation, (3) production of hormones and other metabolically active compounds, (4) immunologic defense, and (5) mediation of taste.
Scientists have long known that lack of sleep disrupts every physiologic function
in the body.
The study showed that while a Paclitaxel-eluting stent is very effective at its intended role in reduced tissue overgrowth inside the stented segments, there are profound adverse effects to the normal physiologic function
of coronary arteries in the circulatory distribution of the implanted devices.
Nevertheless, there can be no debate that proteomics is poised to deliver vast amounts of useful information about physiologic function
at the subcellular, cellular, organic, and systemic levels, yielding profound new insights into disease and drug mechanisms, the effects of environmental exposures, and much more.
These data suggest that AhR-regulated GFP expression accurately predicts sites of TCDD-induced toxicity and may provide a novel method for examining the physiologic function
They cannot picture the spine performing its primary PHYSIOLOGIC FUNCTION
of supporting the weight of the human body in its entirety while it occupies the multiplicity of different positions the human body occupies as it carries out, fully erect, its numerous functions.
