The tendency in certain genetic disorders for individuals in successive generations to present at an earlier age and/or with more severe manifestations; often observed in disorders resulting from the expression of a trinucleotide repeat mutation that tends to increase in size and have a more significant effect when passed from one generation to the next Related Terms: intrafamilial variability ; mutable normal allele ; trinucleotide repeat ; trinucleotide repeat testing ; variable expressivity
If Parliament has ordered that a matter is to be debated on a certain date and a Member pre-empts discussion on that matter by raising it on an earlier occasion, he is said to be anticipating the matter. This is not permitted under the Standing Orders. S.O. 51.
the phenomenon whereby disease severity increases with each passing generation. Since disease severity is often difficult to measure, anticipation is frequently measured in terms of patient-reported age-of-onset of the disorder. For example, in a disease showing anticipation, a child may have earlier onset than their parent who has earlier onset than their grandparent. [Source: NHBLI/NCBI Glossary
This is when the prior art indicates that a patent application lacks novelty. Application (for patent) Papers comprising petition, specification, drawings (when required), one or more claims, oath or declaration and filing fee, whereby an applicant seeks a patent.
In patent law, a situation in which an invention is "anticipated" by being too similar to an earlier invention to be considered novel. Because novelty is a requirement for a patent, anticipated inventions are not patentable. Anticipation can occur when a prior invention or printed publication matches all of the primary characteristics of the invention, or it can happen when the invention is displayed or offered for sale more than a year prior to filing a patent application. For example, a bird owner invents a device to keep her bird from picking at its tail feathers. She applies for a patent, but her application is rejected on the ground that the same device was in use 3500 years ago in Egypt. In patent-speak, the inventor's creation has been anticipated by previous developments (the prior art.)
Each generation of offspring has increased severity of a genetic disorder; e.g., a grandchild may have earlier onset and more severe symptoms than the parent, who had earlier onset than the grandparent. See also: additive genetic effects, complex trait
A genetic phenomenon where a disease increases in severity in successive generations, and children can have a more severe form of a disease than their parents. A pattern of anticipation is often observed in trinucleotide repeat disorders. For example, in HD children often have earlier an age of onset and experience a more rapid development of the disease.
In medicine, anticipation is a phenomenon whereby the symptoms of a genetic disorder become apparent at an earlier age as it is passed on to the next generation. In most cases, an increase of severity of symptoms is also noted. It is common in trinucleotide repeat disorders like Huntington's disease, myotonic dystrophy and fragile X syndrome, where triplet repeat mutations in DNA are implicated.
If you can't predict the future correctly, what's the use of futures studies? Answer: even if you don't know what's going to happen, or when it's going to happen, you can at least anticipate a range of possibilities, and prepare for them.
The appraisal principle that holds that value can increase or decrease based on the expectation of some future benefit or detriment produced by the property.
1. The subjective experience accompanying a strong expectation that a particular event will occur; also referred to as the feeling of anticipation. 2. In Western music theory, a type of melodic embellishment in which an expected note is immediately preceded by the same pitch. E.g. The "ta" in the "ta-dah" cadence. See also premonition.
Anticipation is an emotion involving pleasure (and sometimes anxiety) in considering some expected or longed-for good event, or irritation at having to wait. Robert Plutchik listed anticipation as one of the eight basic emotions in his psychoevolutionary theory. See also hope.
In artificial intelligence, anticipation is the concept of an agent making decisions based on predictions, expectations, or beliefs about the future. It is widely considered that anticipation is a vital component of complex natural cognitive systems. As a branch of AI, anticipatory systems is a specialization still echoing the debates from the 1980s about the necessity for AI for an internal model.
Anticipation is a video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System developed by Rare that was released in 1988. It is playable as a single player with computer-controlled players or multiplayer with support for up to four players.
A twisting, or pre-rotation of the upper torso into the direction of the intended turn. The movement creates tension of the body, which aids turning of the skis at the start of the turn. Followed with counter-rotation.
to realize in advance, ie- a heat anticipator on a thermostat is used to shut down a furnace prior to the set point, as we are anticipating that the furnace will continue to run until the heat exchange is cooled and we will be at set point buy that time .
