Fluorescent in situ hybridization. Genomic clones are fluorescently labeled and hybridized to chromosome spreads. In this way a clone can be mapped to a discrete cytogenetic band. If the clone has sequence associated with it, this information can be used to integrate sequence with cytogenetic information. Read more about FISH FISH methodology reference: Dyer SA and Green EK. Fluorescent in situ hybridization. Methods Mol Biol 2002; 187:73-86.
A sensitive test done on either blood or bone marrow cells to look for abnormal cells that contain the bcr-abl gene (which is located on the Ph chromosome). This test can find 1 abnormal cell out of 200 to 500 normal cells.
Fluorescence in situ hybridization. A laboratory test that measures the amount of amplification of a certain gene in breast cancer cells. The FISH test is sometimes used to determine whether a breast cancer cell has too much of the HER2/neu protein. Results of this test may help determine treatment options.
Stands for Fluorescence In-Situ Hybridisation. The technique whereby small lengths of DNA (probes) which "recognise" complementary DNA on particular chromosomes or parts of chromosomes, are labelled with a coloured fluorescent dye and then used to highlight "target" DNA in chromosomes.
Fluorescence in situ hybridization. A test using a fluorescence-tagged segment of DNA that combines with the DNA present in the normal PWS critical region and allows determination by its presence or absence as to whether a 15q deletion is present.
a chromosome analysis technique that uses small known DNA segments which have been fluorescently labeled to selectively attach to specific DNA sequences and light them up under the microscope. Presence or absence of the glow indicates presence or absence of a specific sequence.
(synonym: fluorescent in situ hybridization) A technique used to identify the presence of specific chromosomes or chromosomal regions through hybridization (attachment) of fluorescently-labeled DNA probes to denatured chromosomal DNA. Examination under fluorescent lighting detects the presence of the hybridized fluorescent signal (and hence presence of the chromosome material) or absence of the hybridized fluorescent signal (and hence absence of the chromosome material).
fluorescence in situ hybridization. A process which vividly paints chromosomes or portions of chromosomes with fluorescent molecules. This technique is useful for identifying chromosomal abnormalities and gene mapping.
Fluorescence in situ hybridization. A powerful molecular cytogenetics technique that uses a fluorescent-labeled DNA probe to determine the presence or absence of a particular segment of DNA — the BCR-ABL gene in the case of CML. It combines the ability to identify a specific gene or gene region (molecular) with direct visualization of the cells and/or chromosomes under the microscope (cytogenetics). In the FISH test, about 200 of your cells are generally examined. The examined cells are usually from your bone marrow but also can be from your peripheral blood (that is, the blood in your veins). FISH can detect the BCR-ABL gene in CML patients even when your bone marrow shows you are Philadelphia-chromosome negative.
Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) is a laboratory technique that uses fluorescently-labelled pieces of DNA to detect specific genes, chromosome segments or chromosomes, in cells examined under a special microscope.
Fluorescence in situ hybridization. A technique that can be used for prenatal diagnosis, in which specifically designed fluorescent molecules are used to "light up" particular genes or sections of chromosomes to make them visible under a microscope. The fluorescence makes even small abnormalities in the chromosomes visible.
Fluorescent in situ hybridization. Use of a single stranded DNA sequence with a fluorescent label to hybridize with its complementary target sequence in the chromosomes, allowing it to be visualized under ultraviolet light.
(1) Any vertebrate animal provided with gills throughout life and cold-blooded, the limbs being modified into fins. (2) Fish are defined as: shellfish, crustaceans, marine animals, the eggs, spawn, spat and juvenile stages of fish, shellfish, crustaceans, and marine animals. (Canada Fisheries Act, sec.31.5)
All fish are broken down into two very broad categories - fish and shellfish. In the most basic terms, fish are equipped with fins, backbones and gills, while shellfish have shells of one form or another. Fish without shells are separated into two groups - freshwater fish and saltwater fish. Because salt water provides more buoyancy than fresh water, saltwater fish - such as cod, flounder and tuna - can afford to have thicker bones. Freshwater fish - like catfish, perch and trout - can`t be weighted with a heavy skeletal framework. Instead, their structure is based on hundreds of minuscule bones, a source of frustration to many diners.
i) A vertebrate cold-blooded animal with gills and fins living wholly in water, e.g., cuttlefish, shellfish, jellyfish, ii) try to catch fish esp. with a line or net, iii) fish for a particular species in a certain stretch of water.
Cold-blooded, scaly animals from the Chordate Phylum. Fish live in water, breathe through gills, and move by swimming with fins. Most of them lay eggs in water. Some fish in our area include bass, bluegill, and catfish.
A surfboard design invented by Steve Lis of San Diego, California, which features a wide nose and broad swallow-type tail design, with a twin-fin setup; in recent years, refers to almost any short, stubby, wide surfboard. * see illustration
a. means fresh or saltwater finfish, crustaceans and other forms of aquatic life (including alligator, frog, aquatic turtle, jellyfish, sea cucumber, and sea urchin and the roe of such animals) other than birds or mammals, and all mollusks, if such life is intended for human consumption. b. includes an edible human food product derived in whole or in part from fish, including fish that have been processed in any manner.
"includes parts of fish, shellfish, crustaceans, marine animals and any parts of shellfish, crustaceans or marine animals, and the eggs, sperm, spawn, larvae, spat and juvenile stages of fish, shellfish, crustaceans and marine animals." ( Fisheries Act, sec. 2).
A fish is a cold-blooded animal that has a backbone and lives in water and breathes by means of gills. It normally has two pairs of fins in place of arms and legs, as well as several other fins. Many fish are covered with scales. All fish hatch from eggs. Usually the females and males release the eggs and the milt (fish sperm) into the water. When they meet, the eggs are fertilized. Eggs may be released in long, sticky strings that cling to rocks or seaweed, or they may float on the surface, becoming part of the plankton. Many species simply dig a depression on the bottom of a lake and deposit the eggs there. Some eggs are covered with oddly shaped leathery cases . Sometimes the eggs are fertilized in the female's body and hatch there.

Any thousands of species of aquatic vertebrates with fins for swimming and gills for breathing, found in saltwater and freshwater worldwide, most are edible; fish are classified by bone structure as flatfish or round fish.
Fish are scaly, cold-blooded animals with fins that get their oxygen from the water using gills. Primitive fish evolved during the Ordovician Period (505 to 438 million years ago), long before the whales appeared.
Fish are aquatic vertebrates that are typically cold-blooded; covered with scales, and equipped with two sets of paired fins and several unpaired fins. Fish are abundant in the sea and in fresh water, with species being known from mountain streams (e.g., char and gudgeon) as well as in the deepest depths of the ocean (e.g., gulpers and anglerfish). They are of tremendous importance as food for people around the world, either collected from the wild (see fishing) or farmed in much the same way as cattle or chickens (see aquaculture).
As in Joe is an absolute fish. He always looses and everyone hooks him into a game. Categorized in the food chain of pool (Shark, fish, minnows, guppies, algae, with algae being the least skilled player and the least liking to win.)
A poor player -- one who gives his money away. It's a well-known (though not well-followed) rule among good players to not upset the bad players, because they'll stop having fun and perhaps leave. Thus the phrase, "Don't tap on the aquarium."
This is the weakest player at the table, meaning the one who loses the most chips. A renowned proverb goes "If you look around the table for the fish and you cannot find that player, it is you and it is time to get out of this game".
n: an object that is left in the wellbore during drilling or workover operations and that must be recovered before work can proceed. It can be anything from a piece of scrap metal to a part of the drill stem.
(1) A foreign object (such as tool or pipe) lost in the borehole which obstructs routine functions performed in the well. Usually must be removed or by-passed. (2) To attempt to retrieve the object lost in the well bore. (3) A portable surface electrode, attached to the end of a line, making a remote ground electrical connection. The fish is usually placed in a shallow hole dug into the ground and filled with mud. Compare ground stake.
Any unwanted object down a well, commonly the lower end of a drill string which has broken off. "Fishing" is trying to recover the Fish, using various attachments to the drill stem or wireline, known as fishing tools.
Anything left in a wellbore. It does not matter whether the fish consists of junk metal, a hand tool, a length of drillpipe or drill collars, or an expensive MWD and directional drilling package. Once the component is lost, it is properly referred to as simply "the fish." Typically, anything put into the hole is accurately measured and sketched, so that appropriate fishing tools can be selected if the item must be fished out of the hole.
Have a question? Ask Chad Childress. Are your students bored with what happens in their Christian club? Does it seem pointless to them? Give them a free plan that will help them be involved in seeing their friends come to Christ at school.
Fish represent success and keeping them in a pond or aquarium is said to bring good luck. Symbols of fish or artwork containing fish may be placed in the study or office to bring success and good fortune in business.
Always a symbol for success and good fortune, keeping fish in a pond outdoors, or in an aquarium in the north, water sector of your space is considered very auspicious. Sculptures or imagery containing fish are also powerful when placed in the north.
To strengthen (a beam, mast, etc.), or unite end to end (two timbers, railroad rails, etc.) by bolting a plank, timber, or plate to the beam, mast, or timbers, lengthwise on one or both sides. See Fish joint, under Fish, n.
The turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean teem with a variety of fish ranging from shad to bass. Shad fishing has become so popular that the authorities have introduced strict laws restricting the number of fish one can take home. The annual sardine-run in May has Durbanites taking full advantage of the harvest.
Protective against strokes and heart disease, fish high in omega-3 fatty acids are most protective, can help with symptoms of arthritis, high blood pressure and respiratory problems, fish highest in omega-3 include sardines, mackerel, herring, salmon and tuna. Ingest fish that are high in omega-3 fatty acids at least three times a week.
Fish was a spinoff television series of the sitcom Barney Miller. It starred Abe Vigoda as Detective Phil Fish and Florence Stanley as his wife Bernice. For a while, the character of Phil Fish continued to appear on Barney Miller as Vigoda headlined this program.
Fish was a BBC drama series of 2002, starring Paul Mc Gann as an idealistic lawyer who specialised in industrial tribunals. In court, he often came up against a female lawyer, played by Jemma Redgrave. Fish's wife had mysteriously disappeared, leaving him to look after his young son, and he began an affair with Redgrave.
Derek William Dick, better known as Fish (born 25 April 1958 in Dalkeith, Midlothian), is a Scottish progressive rock singer, lyric writer and occasional actor. After a patchy career as a gardener and forestry worker, he came to public attention in 1981 with the British group Marillion, which he left in 1988 following top ten hits in 1985 with Kayleigh and Lavender and in 1987 with Incommunicado. It is widely believed that the name Fish arose from his drinking habits, however, according to Fish himself, the name originates from the amount of time he spent reading in the bath.
An aerial effect that looks like a swarm of objects squirming though the air. This effect usually lasts only a few seconds. Fish are actually a type of fuse that propels itself through the air, creating a swimming effect.
traditional nickname for freshmen. Newcomers to the band are sufficiently given hell during boot camp and summer band, leading up to Initiation. Freshmen usually share a marching spot amongst themselves, and we don't let trombone freshmen do the Guillotine until the last couple of football games.
Fossil fish in Florida have not been studied nearly as much as mammals. For example, there are only 81 species of fossil fish known, compared to over 800 that live in or around Florida today. Surely many more await discovery.
