A gene on chromosome 2q14 that encodes a protein belonging to the C2H2-type zinc finger protein subclass of the Gli family of transcription activators, which mediate Sonic hedgehog (Shh) signalling. GLI2 localises to the cytoplasm and activates patched Drosophila homolog (PTCH) gene expression, and may play a role in embryogenesis.

Molecular pathology
GLI2 mutations have been linked to Greig cephalopolysyndactyly syndrome, Pallister-Hall syndrome, pre-axial polydactyly type IV and postaxial polydactyly types A1 and B.

These products are based on cutting-edge, brand new THP technology and we are confident that they will provide our consumers with more satisfying options when looking for alternatives to cigarettes."
In contrast, exposure to vapour from the EC or THP resulted in little or no colour change that was comparable to the untreated controls.
The lead faculty members and mentors were introduced followed by success stories of THP students.
To understand the mechanism of RUT-mediated cardioprotection, cells were divided into six groups: control, THP, DZR + THP, RUT + THP, SB203580 + THP, and RUT + SB203580 + THP.
As a result of the investment Mr Mackowski, along with THP's managing director Tom Raffin - a Stanford University professor - and chartered financial analyst Rob Hart, have joined the board of TrakCel.
Apart from an SA identity document, further required documentation listed in the pro forma document includes 'proof of qualification as THP (if any)' and 'highest standard passed (attach certified copy, if any)'.
For a car with petrol running through its pipes though, the THP 165 does all right, posting a combined figure of 50.5mpg which equates to 130g/km of CO2 Residual values should be stronger than those of comparable mainstream models, the DS brand attracting a strong core of followers.
It is to be equipped with a direct-injected, turbocharged 1.6-litre THP engine with a six-speed automatic, while China will also have a 1.2-litre e-THP and normally aspirated 1.8-litre CVVT engines.
If you need more poke, then the older 1.6-litre THP turbo petrol engines that the brand co-developed with BMW provide it.
You'll need deeper pockets to run the top THP 200 version of course, but this car still returns 44.1mpg and 149g/km.
The 308 CC was offered with a choice of three petrol engines (1.6 VTi 120, 1.6 THP 140 Auto and 1.6 THP 150) alongside two diesels (HDi 110 and HDi 140).
In comparison, motivated by the information-theoretic consideration proposed in (Choi and Murch, 2004), Tomlinson-Harashima non linear precoding (THP) achieves more system capacity.
