chemical formula for calcium hydroxide.


A gene on chromosome 8q22 that encodes an isoenzyme of carbonic anhydrase, a zinc metalloenzyme that catalyses the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. Carbonic anhydrase 2 is essential for bone resorption and osteoclast differentiation.

Molecular pathology

24 ( ANI ): Researchers have determined that a small region of the hippocampus known as CA2 is essential for social memory, the ability of an animal to recognize another of the same species.
Neuroscientists are excited about her findings in CA2 because they open up new opportunities for delving into the workings of plasticity, especially for better understanding the factors that reduce or prevent it.
The researchers were surprised to find that, in mice with a disabled RGS14 gene, the CA2 region was now capable of "robust" long-term potentiation, meaning that in response to electrical stimulation, neurons there had stronger connections.
The tows were then combined by cruise, closed area, year, and all tows from the CA2 and the two ETCA cruises together (Data from the NLCA cruise were excluded because the gears used during this survey were different than those used during the other cruises).

The water requirement for the 3 kinds of limestone admixtures (Ca1, Ca2 and Ca3) is more important as the smoothness is large and remains weaker than that of the mortar of reference for rates of substitution lower than 18%.

The primers for the apoE PCR were CA1 5'-TTGAA000CTACAAATCGGAACTG-3' and CA2 5'-000GCTGCCCATCTCCTCCATCCG-3', which produce a 462-bp PCR product from genomic DNA.
Study subjects received single intravenous doses of a monoclonal antibody called cA2, which blocks tumor necrosis factor, a blood protein that plays a role in the inflammation.
Meanwhile other groups are working to arrange trials of cA2 for multiple sclerosis.
