Definitions for "Polarity"
That quality or condition of a body in virtue of which it exhibits opposite, or contrasted, properties or powers, in opposite, or contrasted, parts or directions; or a condition giving rise to a contrast of properties corresponding to a contrast of positions, as, for example, attraction and repulsion in the opposite parts of a magnet, the dissimilar phenomena corresponding to the different sides of a polarized ray of light, etc.
A property of the conic sections by virtue of which a given point determines a corresponding right line and a given right line determines a corresponding point. See Polar, n.
The wiring of a microphone or speaker to make sure that the movement of air will be in the same direction as the electrical signal. Also of concern between equipment in a balanced system.
Keywords:  yang, yin, goddess, zodiac, psychic
The concept of equal, opposite energies. The Eastern yin/yang is a perfect example. Yin is cold; yang is hot. Other examples of polarity: Goddess/God, night/day, Moon/Sun, birth/death, psychic mind/conscious mind. Universal balance.
The property of nucleic acids to be read only one way from 5' to 3' and differently in the opposite direction.
The two opposite reproductive strategies used by primates: in the Haremic patripolarity, males battle for paternity, while in the Orgeic matripolarity, sperm battle for paternity. One of the three personality dyads: Sexuality, Hemisphericity, and Polarity.
Meaning directionality and referring either to an effect seen in only one direction from a point of origin or to the fact that linear entities (such as a single strand of DNA or RNA or a protein) have ends (5' and 3'; N and C) that differ from each other.
A designation of the relative instantaneous direction of the current in a secondary lead as compared with a primary lead. The two leads are said to be of the same polarity when, at any instant, the currents in the two leads are flowing in the same direction as if the leads were a single piece of wire. The polarity of a single-phase transformer is classed as either additive or subtractive.
The 180-degree difference in the phase of audio signals that must be observed when wiring speakers (Red to red and Black to black).
Occurs when a mutation in an operon affects genes downstream in the operon. Note that transposons cause polar mutations. (Lecture: The Bacterial Cell: Structure, Function, Growth, and Gene Regulation III, 1/31/02)
refers to the effect of a mutation in one gene in influencing the expression (at transcription or translation) of subsequent genes in the same transcription unit.
Developed by the Osteopath and Chiropractor Dr. Randolph Stone, Polarity Therapy works primarily with the energy fields that underlie the human body. It is based on the energy model that was developed in India three thousand years ago and which is combined with the Western understanding of the structure and function of the body. The resulting combination becomes a very potent therapy which has a wide application to health at the mental, emotional and physical level.
A term that refers to orientation of a plant part during its development. For instance, the part of a potato tuber that developed closest to the main stem of the potato plant is termed proximal and the end that developed farthest from the plant is termed distal.
Intrinsic polar separation, alignment, or orientation, especially of a physical property.
The orientation of intracellular structures to the tissue as a whole
In development, the difference between one end and the other. In chemistry, the property that makes a polar molecule. Pollen [L.: fine powder, dust] • The fertilizing element of seed plants, containing the male gametophyte and the gamete, at the stage in which it is shed.
