  • Adrenergic beta-antagonist [r]: Drugs that bind to but do not activate beta-adrenergic receptors thereby blocking the actions of beta-adrenergic agonists. Adrenergic beta-antagonists are used for treatment of hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, angina pectoris, glaucoma, migraine headaches, and anxiety. [e]
  • Allozymes [r]: Enzymes that are coded for by different alleles at the same locus. [e]
  • Atenolol [r]: A cardioselective adrenergic beta-antagonist medication for hypertension and angina pectoris. [e]
  • Biogenic amine receptor [r]: Cell surface proteins that bind biogenic amines with high affinity and regulate intracellular signals which influence the behavior of cells. [e]
  • Biology [r]: The science of life — of complex, self-organizing, information-processing systems living in the past, present or future. [e]
  • Bisoprolol [r]: Cardioselective beta-1-adrenergic blocker, used in the management of hypertension and angina pectoris. [e]
  • Cat [r]: A feline, particularly the domesticated feline, Felis catus, a small carnivorous mammal. [e]
  • Clopidogrel [r]: A platelet aggregation inhibitor used to prevent cardiac events [e]
  • DNA [r]: A macromolecule — chemically, a nucleic acid — that stores genetic information. [e]
  • Dihybrid cross [r]: A cross in genetics between two individuals identically heterozygous at two loci, for example, AaBb x AaBb. [e]
  • Drug toxicity [r]: Manifestations of the adverse effects of drugs administered therapeutically or in the course of diagnostic techniques. [e]
  • Evolution [r]: A change over time in the proportions of individual organisms differing genetically. [e]
  • Gene flow [r]: The movement of genetic alleles from one population to another. If there is a low gene flow between two populations they may become distinct species. [e]
  • Genetics [r]: The study of the inheritance of characteristics, genes and DNA. [e]
  • Genotype [r]: Genetic makeup, as distinguished from the physical appearance, of an organism or a group of organisms, based on a combination of alleles located on homologous chromosomes that determines a specific characteristic or trait. [e]
  • Heterosis [r]: An observable phenomenon in which hybrid plants or animals may exhibit greater yields, health or faster rate of growth than their inbred parents. [e]
  • Horizontal gene transfer in prokaryotes [r]: Horizontal gene transfer (HGT; also called lateral gene transfer, LGT) is defined as movement of genes between different species, or across broad taxonomic categories. Prokaryotes are cells, such as bacteria, that do not have a nucleus enclosed by a nuclear membrae. Their DNA is in a region of the cell called the nucleiod, or nucleus-like material. [e]
  • Horizontal gene transfer [r]: Transfer of genetic material to a being other than one of the donor's offspring. [e]
  • Lactose intolerance [r]: Due to a decrease of the lactase enzyme in cells lining the small intestine of adults and a concomitant inability to break down or metabolize lactose. [e]
  • List of biology topics [r]: Add brief definition or description
  • Maine Coon [r]: The oldest American breed of long-haired domestic cat. [e]
  • Metoprolol [r]: An adrenergic beta-antagonist useful in angina pectoris, hypertension, or cardiac arrhythmias. [e]
  • Microsatellite [r]: Polymorphic loci present in nuclear and organellar DNA that consist of repeating units of 1-6 base pairs in length. [e]
  • Mutation [r]: Changes to the DNA sequence that cause new genetic variation. [e]
  • Natural selection [r]: The differential survival and/or reproduction of classes of entities that differ in one or more characteristics [e]
  • Preoperative care [r]: Preparation and management of a patient prior to surgery. [e]
  • Single-nucleotide polymorphism [r]: A DNA sequence variation across chromosomes within an individual or a species, involving only a single base change. [e]
  • Targeted gene replacement [r]: Technique in which cloned DNA is introduced into mammalian stem cell culture, via gene modification in vitro. [e]
