Disease relevance of MIPS

  • The UGP inspection of wild-caught specimens revealed evidence of feminization of male papillae, a condition denoted as morphologically intermediate papilla syndrome (MIPS) [1].
  • In the present study, an MIPS cDNA from developing Passiflora edulis f. flavicarpa seeds was characterized and an investigation made into its spatial and differential expression, as well as changes in its transcription during exposure of growing plants to cold and heat stresses [2].
  • Macrophage infectivity potentiators (Mips) are FKBP domain-containing proteins reported as virulence factors in several human pathogens, such as members of genera Legionella, Salmonella and Chlamydia [3].
  • This RSL-Factor I (RSL-F I) is denominated 'Aggressiveness/Hostility' and appears adequate to test the clinical impression that male myocardial infarction patients (Mips) are more 'aggressive/hostile' than healthy males [4].

High impact information on MIPS


Biological context of MIPS

  • However, conservation of a 'core catalytic structure' among the MIPS proteins implies an essential function of the enzyme in cellular metabolism throughout the biological kingdom [8].
  • As compared with the baseline (predose) values, the 3 incremental aminophylline doses significantly (p less than 0.05 to 0.01) increased occlusion pressure (P0.1) and maximum inspiratory pressure static (MIPS) at functional residual capacity (FRC) [9].
  • Availability: DIALIGN is available through the Bielefeld Bioinformatics Server (BiBiServ) at The gene-prediction program AGenDA described in this paper will be available through the BiBiServ or MIPS web server at [10].
  • The RNA biogenesis machinery of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis was assessed by comparative analyses of PbAESTs (P. brasiliensis assembled expressed sequence tags (ESTs)) with sequences from Saccharomyces cerevisiae MIPS database [11].
  • MIPS bacterial genomes functional annotation benchmark dataset [7].

Anatomical context of MIPS

  • Assessment of respiratory muscle strength is done most directly by measuring maximal static inspiratory and expiratory mouth pressures (MIPS and MEPS, respectively) [12].

Associations of MIPS with chemical compounds

  • L-myo-Inositol 1-phosphate synthase (MIPS, EC, the key enzyme in the inositol and phosphoinositide biosynthetic pathway, is present throughout evolutionarily diverse organisms and is considered an ancient protein/gene [8].
  • On a 100-MHz MIPS R4000 processor (Silicon Graphics Indigo), Sculpt achieves 11 updates per second on a 20-residue fragment and 2 updates per second on an 80-residue protein, using all atoms except non-H-bonding hydrogens, and without electrostatic interactions [13].
  • These findings support an association between reduced MIPS gene activity and low phytic acid content, but additional research should examine the promoter, the 5'UTR, or transcriptional controlling elements of the MIPS gene to ascertain the possible presence of a genetic lesion in those regions [14].
  • Juvenile goby experimentally exposed to 17beta-estradiol for 11 to 32 weeks exhibited signs of the MIPS condition, showing that it was inducible by estrogenic exposure and could therefore be a form of estrogenic endocrine disruption [1].
  • Background and Aims Myo-inositol-1l-phosphate synthase (MIPS) catalyses the conversion of d-glucose 6-phosphate to 1-l-myo-inositol-1-phosphate, the first and rate-limiting step in the biosynthesis of all inositol-containing compounds [2].

Other interactions of MIPS

  • Pulmonary function testing included measurement of maximum inspiratory and expiratory pressures (MIPS and MEPS) and maximum voluntary ventilation (MVV) [15].
  • The draft of the MIPS Standard was mostly based on ACR/NEMA Standard, but simplified and reduced [16].
  • The Medical Image Processing System (MIPS) plan is a standard plan for the online communication of imaging data in Japan. The ACR-NEMA Standard is not always easy for manufacturers in Japan to comply with [17].
  • The PIR-Inter-national databases and search tools are accessible on the PIR web site at and at the MIPS web site at [18].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of MIPS

  • Analysis by multiple sequence alignment, phylogenetic tree generation and comparison of newly determined crystal structures provides new insight into the origin and evolutionary relationships among the various MIPS proteins/genes [8].
  • The MIPS was easily incorporated into an infant's physical examination [19].
  • Forty healthy term infants (17 +/- 7 weeks) undergoing elective surgery had simultaneous independent assessment of pain using two scales: a naive observer used the MIPS and an experienced pediatric nurse used a 10-cm unmarked horizontal visual analogue scale (VAS) [19].
  • This study describes an observational system (modified infant pain scale, MIPS) with elements from a previously published observational scale and from assessments of video-recorded infant facial expressions [19].
  • In the MIPS group, length of stay (P < .001), use of lumbar drainage (P = .007), and nasal packing (P < .001) were also significantly reduced [20].
