A gene on chromosome 6p12 that encodes a member of the AP-2 family of transcription factors, which activate the transcription of genes involved in proper eye, face, body wall, limb and neural tube development. TFAP2B inhibits C/EBP alpha, MCAM/MUC18 and MYC; it appears to be required for normal face and limb development, and for proper terminal differentiation and function of renal tubular epithelia.

Molecular pathology
TFAP2B mutations cause autosomal dominant Char syndrome.


arctic and subarctic species of the fish genus salvelinus.

The experiment researches the influence of different volatilization of pyrolysis char on the tar cracking with the volatilization of pyrolysis char respectively selects 5%,8%,11%.
After the fire protection test, a piece of char was cut from the center of the char layer, and a gold film was sputtered atop the specimen to make the surface of the specimen electrically conductive.
Here we collate results from two radio-tagging projects (1995-96 and 1999) and two t-bar-tagging projects (1987 and 1997) that aimed to identify critical overwintering, spawning, or summer feeding habitats of the anadromous Hornaday River Arctic char stock.
It was employed an indirect method to evaluate the volatile liberation percentage using the ash of precursor coal and char as a tracer [Badzioch&Hawksley, 1970; Barranco et al.
In Lithuania, in order to determine the charring time of wooden structures, the charring depth and electrical resistance of char are measured.
A further 1,600 char were this week released into Llyn Crafnant, near Trefriw in the Conwy Valley adding to the 5,000 already stocked there.
A metodologia empregada para obter a quantificacao dos materiais carbonosos presentes no po de balao abrange: l) caracterizar quimica e granulometrica as amostras de po de balao, carvoes e coque utilizadas no processo; 2) obter uma amostra de char produzida em simulador da zona de combustao a partir dos carvoes estudados; 3) realizar analise por DRX de todas as amostras e fracoes do po de balao; 4) analisar os difratogramas para o calculo do [L.
Carbon content of wood varies from about 47 to 53 percent due to varying lignin and extractives content (Ragland and Aerts 1991); almost 30 to 50 percent of the carbon in the wood is converted to solid char during the pyrolysis process.
In the fragments of the Feitillets I will discuss in this essay, Char reflects on France's need to heal from its stark internal divisions, and he writes against the rapid, postwar repression of memory in France.
