Rise and Fall of Epithelial Phenotype: Concepts of Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition (Molecular Biology Intelligence Unit)

Epithelial phenotype is a dynamic level of differentiation that may be modulated in the course of a number of physiological or pathological occasions. The speedy conversion to a mesenchymal-like phenotype is named an epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). the increase and Fall of Epithelial Phenotype is the 1st ebook to comprehensively introduce the concept that of EMT.

Reid et al. internannual variability in global oceanic uptake. , 2004a). , 2006; see Fig. 3). This cold water forms via intense air/sea/ice interaction at the surface, sinks and then spreads northwards towards the Arctic. A freshening of the AABW has occurred off a large sector of East Antarctica that may in part reflect melting at depth ($700 m) of Antarctic glaciers that extend over the sea (see Section 7). , 2008). 3. Slowing down of the MOC and cooling of NW Europe The general consensus from modelling projections for the twenty-first century is that there is likely to be a reduction in the strength of the Atlantic MOC of up to 50% of its current strength.

The sea-ice there shows no buttressing in the way that it does in Antarctica. Even so, sea-ice in the Greenland Sea has rapidly decreased over the last two decades and the Oden ice tongue between 70 and 75 N has disappeared. In Antarctica, the WAIS is grounded below sea-level, allowing warmer ocean water to melt the base of the ice sheet and potentially leading to significant instability. Understanding of these processes is limited. As a result, they are not adequately included in current ice sheet models and there is no consensus as to how quickly they could cause sea-level to rise.

A provisional grouping of 10 different PFTs that need to be simulated in a new generation of linked ocean physics and ecosystem models was selected by Le Que´re´ et al. (2005) to ‘capture important biogeochemical processes in the ocean’. The groups selected are involved in, for example, bacterial remineralisation, N2 fixation, phytoplankton calcification, silicification and DMS production, and include three different size fractions of zooplankton that contribute to export via a range of processes including faecal pellet and mucilaginous packages.
