MEIS1, Homeobox Protein .
Meis 1 Protein .
Transcription Factor, Meis1 .
A TALE-type homeodomain protein and transcription factor that functions as a regulator of PAX6 PROTEIN expression and as an activator of PLATELET FACTOR 4 gene expression. It is essential for hematopoiesis, differentiation of MEGAKARYOCYTES, and vascular patterning. It may also have a role in the induction of myeloid leukemias. .

Ethanoic Acid .
Product of the oxidation of ethanol and of the destructive distillation of wood. It is used locally, occasionally internally, as a counterirritant and also as a reagent. (Stedman, 26th ed) .
Adaptation .
Degree of Adaptability .
Life Skills .
The process and the result of physical, biological and psychological changes of an organism or a population in order to adjust to given environmental conditions. (Material V - Gunn, S.W.A. Multilingual Dictionary of Disaster Medicine and International Relief, 1990) .
Tissue Expansion .
Expansion, Tissue .
Expansions, Tissue .
Tissue Expansions .
A procedure whereby the body is stimulated to generate extra soft tissue by the application of stretching forces that stimulate new growth of tissue which, over a period of time, results in a 2-dimensional expansion of the tissue. The procedure is used in reconstructive surgery for injuries caused by trauma, burns, or ablative surgery. Various types of TISSUE EXPANSION DEVICES have been developed that exert stretching forces. .
