  Dorsal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In anatomy, the dorsal is the side in which the backbone is located.
Examples of this include the dorsal fin, dorsal root ganglion, dorsal root, dorsal nerve, dorsum sellae, dorsal arch, dorsalis pedis arteries, dorsal ramus, dorsal respiratory group, dorsal venous arch, and dorsiflexion among others.
In neurology, dorsal is an outdated term for the medial longitudinal fasciculus in the neural arch.

 Dorsal Ventral Polarity
Dorsal protein plays a central role and it acts on cell nuclei to specify different regions of the embryo, and their respective cell fates which are all regulated by concentration gradients.
For example, the dorsal gene is needed for the differentiation of the ventral cells.
The activation of the Toll protein is critical to the establishment of the gradient of the Dorsal protein in the ventral nuclei.

 The Dorsal Wall Lifting Theory of Laminitis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The grooves were positioned medial and lateral to the dorsal hoof surface, approximately midway between the toe and heel regions of the hoof, staring 1cm distal to the coronary band and extending to the ground surface (Fig.
Dorsal wall resections will remove a section of hoof wall that is exerting a lifting force onto the underlying dorsal laminae.
The proposal of the dorsal wall lifting theory is not a rejection of scientific research or literature previously published on laminitis, which in general has struggled to confirm the vascular crisis theory.

 Circumcision: Local Anesthesia Better Than Dorsal Penile Nerve Block
To perform dorsal penile nerve block, the penile root is identified and a 26-gauge needle is inserted 0.5 cm distal to the root at the 10- and 2-o'clock positions (Figure 2).
This study was undertaken to compare the efficacy of dorsal penile nerve block and local anesthesia by objective parameters: heart rate, transcutaneous oxygen saturation, the presence or absence of crying, and postoperative plasma cortisol levels.
Dorsal penile nerve block was administered as described by Kirya and Werthmann [5].

 Courey Summary
In contrast, Dorsal is a repressor of the decapentaplegic (dpp) gene, which is therefore only transcribed in the dorsally-situated presumptive ectoderm where Dorsal activity is low.
When Dorsal binds to the DNA in the context of E boxes, which interact with bHLH factors such as Twi), the resulting protein platform creates a surface for the efficient recruitment of coactivators such as CBP or Dip3.
Dorsal may alleviate the inhibition brought about by the Twi N-terminus, perhaps by induc-ing a conformational change in Twi.

 die-1 and dorsal intercalation
We have investigated epithelial cell rearrangement (intercalation) in the dorsal hypodermis, or embryonic epidermis, of the C.
Note that many of the anterior dorsal hypodermal cells intercalate, but most of the posterior dorsal cells are wedged and do not intercalate completely before they fuse into the dorsal hypodermal syncytium.
The bright ovals are the nuclei of dorsal hypodermal cells, which undergo a contralateral migration as intercalation proceeds.

 Activation of amphibian dorsal determinants
One hypothesis (mentioned in Gilbert, 1997) is that the beta-catenin of the inner cytoplasm is activated to enter the nuclei of those cells on the dorsal side of the embryo.
Kageura (1997) studies indicate that a dorsal determinant resides within the egg vegetal cortex and that this region is rotated to the dorsal side during fertilization.
In Kageura's model, the activation of the dorsal axis would occur when the competent equatorial inner cytoplasm contacts the cortical determinant that had rotated to the future dorsal side of the embryo.

 Slow Dorsal-Ventral Rhythm Generator in the Lamprey Spinal Cord
Ventral root branches supplying dorsal and ventral myotomes were exposed bilaterally to study the motor pattern in detail.
These results suggest that in addition to the network generating the swimming rhythm in the lamprey spinal cord, there is also a network providing slow reciprocal alternation between dorsal and ventral parts of the myotome.
During steering, a selective activation of dorsal and ventral myotomes is required and the neural network generating the slow rhythm may represent activity in the spinal machinery used for steering.

For example, humans and most other mammals have nails on the dorsal surface of their digits, while the ventral surface is covered by skin or footpads.
The function of engrailed-1 is to repress the expression of wnt-7a in the ventral limb bud ectoderm.
The third factor, a LIM-homeodomain transcription factor, lmx1b is induced in dorsal mesenchyme by wnt-7a and it is both necessary and sufficient to specify dorsal limb pattern.
