Disease relevance of Population Dynamics


High impact information on Population Dynamics

  • Population dynamics of Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) have been of interest to ecologists for nearly sixty years [6].
  • Environmental variation reflected by the North Atlantic Oscillation affects breeding and survival in terrestrial vertebrates, and climate change is predicted to have an impact on population dynamics by influencing food quality or availability [7].
  • Stable populations of both phosphorylated and nonphosphorylated forms of the T3 gamma peptide have been identified in these cells [8].
  • Oligodendrocyte population dynamics and the role of PDGF in vivo [9].
  • Although mutant and null oligodendrocytes were generated in equal numbers, the proportion expressing the mutant allele subsequently declined, but whereas those expressing the rumpshaker allele formed a reduced but stable population, the number of jimpy cells fell progressively [10].

Gene context of Population Dynamics

  • CD45RA(+) memory cells are a stable population of noncycling cells, but on stimulation they are potent producers of IFN-gamma, while naive CD8(+) cells produce only IL-2 [27].
  • In addition to the significant changes in macrophage population dynamics we observed, levels of the proinflammatory cytokine TNF-alpha and the positive acute phase reactant fibrinogen are also elevated in the livers from apoE-deficient mice [28].
  • Since variation in agr specificity type has been proposed as a possible reason for population dynamics in Staphylococcus aureus, the agr specificity groups of different epidemic MRSA strains were investigated by PCR using agr group-specific primers [29].
  • However, memory CD4(+) T cells only characterized after short-term culture with Ag and IL-2, and, recognizing the same epitopes, developed into a long-term stable population [30].
  • After inhibition of RNA polymerase II transcription for 5-10 h, a stable population of poly(A)+ RNA remained in the nucleus and was reorganized into fewer and larger interchromatin granule clusters along with pre-mRNA splicing factors [31].
