 Synonyms & Historicals
Germine Acetates .
Acetates, Germine .
Germine 3 monoacetate .
Germine-3-monoacetate .
Germine derivatives acetylated on any one or more of the hydroxy groups. These compounds are present in many polyester alkaloids which occur in Veratrum and Zygadenus species. They are used as antihypertensive agents, and in some cases, exhibit curare-like activity. .
Acetates .
Acetic Acids .
Acids, Acetic .
Esters, Acetic Acid .
Acetic Acid Esters .
Derivatives of ACETIC ACID. Included under this heading are a broad variety of acid forms, salts, esters, and amides that contain the carboxymethane structure. .
Germinoma .
Germinomas .
A malignant neoplasm of the germinal tissue of the GONADS; MEDIASTINUM; or pineal region. Germinomas are uniform in appearance, consisting of large, round cells with vesicular nuclei and clear or finely granular eosinophilic-staining cytoplasm. (Stedman, 265th ed; from DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, pp1642-3) .
Blastodisc .

Areas, Germinal .
Blastodiscs .
Disc, Germinal .
Discs, Germinal .
Germinal Areas .
Germinal Discs .
Germinal Disc .
A small whitish spot on the surface of the EGG YOLK where cleavage begins. Upon fertilization the cytoplasm streams from the vegetal pole away from the yolk to the animal pole where cleavage will occur. This germinal area eventually flattens into a layer of cells (BLASTODERM) that covers the yolk completely. .
Germination .
Germinations .
The initial stages of the growth of SEEDS into a SEEDLINGS. The embryonic shoot (plumule) and embryonic PLANT ROOTS (radicle) emerge and grow upwards and downwards respectively. Food reserves for germination come from endosperm tissue within the seed and/or from the seed leaves (COTYLEDON). (Concise Dictionary of Biology, 1990) .
Acetoacetates .
Salts and derivatives of acetoacetic acid. .
