 Synonyms & Historicals
Safe Sex .
Sex, Protected .
Sex, Responsible .
Sex, Safe .
Protected Sex .
Responsible Sex .
Sexual behavior that prevents or reduces the spread of SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES or PREGNANCY. .
Unsafe Sex .
Unprotected Sex .
High Risk Sex .
Sex, High-Risk .
Sex, Unprotected .
Sex, Unsafe .
High-Risk Sex .
Sexual behaviors which are high-risk for contracting SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES or for producing PREGNANCY. .
CD59 Antigens .
CD59 Antigen .
Membrane Inhibitor of Reactive Lysis .
Antigens, CD59 .
Homologous Restriction Factor 20 .
HRF20 .
Membrane Attack Complex Inhibition Factor .
Protectin .
Small glycoproteins found on both hematopoietic and non-hematopoietic cells. CD59 restricts the cytolytic activity of homologous complement by binding to C8 and C9 and blocking the assembly of the membrane attack complex. (From Barclay et al., The Leukocyte Antigen FactsBook, 1993, p234) .
Protection .
Action to provide security and surveillance in affected areas and to help reducing life loss. (Free translation from the original: Glosario de Protección Civil) .
Protected Springs .
Protected Areas .
A protected area to achieve biodiversity and genetic conservation of an ecosystem or a particular species. .
Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin .
Binding Globulin, Testosterone-Estradiol .
Globulin, Sex Hormone-Binding .
Globulin, Testosterone-Estradiol Binding .
Hormone-Binding Globulin, Sex .
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin .
Sex Steroid Binding Protein .
Steroid-Binding Protein, Sex .
Testosterone Estradiol Binding Globulin .
Testosterone-Estradiol Binding Globulin .
Sex Steroid-Binding Protein .
A glycoprotein migrating as a beta-globulin. Its molecular weight, 52,000 or 95,000-115,000, indicates that it exists as a dimer. The protein binds testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, and estradiol in the plasma. Sex hormone-binding protein has the same amino acid sequence as ANDROGEN-BINDING PROTEIN. They differ by their sites of synthesis and post-translational oligosaccharide modifications. .
Pili, Sex .
Sex Pilus .
Conjugative Pilus .
Pilus, Conjugative .
Pilus, Sex .
Conjugative Pili .
Pili, Conjugative .
Sex Pili .
Filamentous or elongated proteinaceous structures which extend from the cell surface in gram-negative bacteria that contain certain types of conjugative plasmid. These pili are the organs associated with genetic transfer and have essential roles in conjugation. Normally, only one or a few pili occur on a given donor cell. (From Singleton & Sainsbury, Dictionary of Microbiology and Molecular Biology, 2d ed, p675) This preferred use of "pili" refers to the sexual appendage, to be distinguished from bacterial fimbriae (FIMBRIAE, BACTERIAL), also known as common pili, which are usually concerned with adhesion. .
