band

 [band]
1. a part, structure, or appliance that binds; for anatomical structures, see frenulum, tenia, trabecula, and vinculum.
2. in dentistry, a thin metal strip fitted around a tooth or its roots.
3. in histology, a zone of a myofibril of striated muscle.
4. in cytogenetics, a segment of a chromosome stained brighter or darker than the adjacent bands; used in identifying the chromosomes and in determining the exact extent of chromosomal abnormalities. Called Q-bands, G-bands, C-bands, T-bands, etc., according to the staining method used. See also layer, stria, and stripe.
A band the dark-staining zone of a sarcomere, whose center is traversed by the H band.
H band a pale zone sometimes seen traversing the center of the A band of a striated myofibril.
I band the band within a striated myofibril, seen as a light region under the light microscope and as a dark region under polarized light.
M band the narrow dark band in the center of the H band.
matrix band a cylindrical metal band with a special clamp or holder (the matrix retainer); it is filled with softened impression compound and seated over a tooth so that the compound flows into the prepared cavity and an impression of the tooth can be obtained. It is also used for placement and contouring of certain restorative materials.
orthodontic band a band fitted over a tooth to anchor an orthodontic fixed appliance.
Z band a thin membrane in a myofibril, seen on longitudinal section as a dark line in the center of the I band; the distance between Z bands delimits the sarcomeres of striated muscle.

Anatomy
A broad sheet of fibrotendinous tissue.
 
Haematology
(1) (Band cell, band form, band neutrophil, stab cell). An immature neutrophil with a nucleus lacking the segmentation typical of mature PMNs, having one continuous nuclear membrane “band”; > 5% bands in the peripheral blood implies increased PMN production in the BM, which is often associated with acute infection. See Left shift, PMN.
(2) A region on an SDS-PAGE gel electrophoresis of “ghosts”—membranes devoid of Hb of RBCs—when subjected to a hypoosmolar (low-ionic strength) solution. Electrophoresis divides the membrane into: bands 1 and 2 (spectrins); bands 2.1 and 2.2 (ankyrin); band 3 (a 90-kD glycoprotein dimer that forms part of the erythrocyte ion channel involved in anion transport); band 4.5 (a glucose transporter); and band 5 (actin).
 
Informatics
See Broadband, ISM band.

Lab medicine
An aggregate of a particular protein or group of proteins on an electrophoresis of serum protein.
 
Medspeak-UK
noun A salary level paid to a certain group of workers (at the NHS, UK) for performing a type of job.
 
verb To determine the salary of a particular person.

Molecular biology
Any “spot” on an electrophoretic gel, which corresponds to the distance of migration of a molecule of interest (DNA, RNA or protein).

band

  1. in ELECTROPHORESIS, a concentration, at a particular location in a gel, of MOLECULES of a similar mobility determined by size and/or shape and/or net charge. The band can be made visible by staining, FLUORESCENCE, autoradiography (see AUTORADIOGRAPH and other techniques.
  2. in CENTRIFUGATION, a concentrated deposition, at a particular position in a gradient, of molecules of the same size and/or shape and/or density.
  3. an element of the pattern produced when mitotic CHROMOSOMES are suitably stained, for example with Giemsa (see C-BANDING). Chromosome pairs have unique banding patterns, which can be used for identification. The bands can be numbered and may be used for mapping the position of genes. The banding pattern can also be used to determine whether chromosomes have undergone structural rearrangements. Polytene chromosomes (see SALIVARY GLAND CHROMOSOME have a unique pattern of bands and interbands. The banding pattern is due to the differential folding of the CHROMATIN fibres that make up the chromosome. They are more tightly folded in the band regions than in the interband regions.
  4. an element of the pattern in sections of MUSCLE myofibrils, where dark areas (A-BANDS) can be seen alternating with light areas (I-BANDS).

Patient discussion about band

Q. how bad can your headaches get the ones i get feel like a band around my head and my eyes ache.

A. Headache can be very painful; thankfully, headache chronic syndromes can be diagnosed and treated quite effectively. From your description it sounds like you have a well-known headache syndrome (maybe cluster headache). However, effective diagnosis and treatment aren't possible over the net, so I would suggest seeing a doctor in order to treat it.
