Morphometric study of the postnatal growth of the parotid gland of the mouse
The growth of the mouse parotid glands during 7 and 35 days of postnatal life was studied by morphometric methods. The mass of the gland, the volume of each morphological compartment, and the cell number in each compartment ...
Analysis of Craniofacial and Extremity Growth in Patients with Growth Hormone Deficiency during Growth Hormone Therapy
Background/Aims: There are many controversies regarding side effects on craniofacial and extremity growth due to growth hormone ( GH) treatment. Our aim was to estimate GH action on craniofacial development and extremity ...
Productivity and saving channels of economic growth as latent variables: an application of confirmatory factor analysis
(Universidad de Chile. Facultad de Economía y Negocios, 2000-12)
When it comes to measure the sources of growth and draw economic policy conclusions, economists rely on growth accounting. According to this approach, per capita growth is explained by two sources: capital accumulation ...
Growth hormone mRNA expression in the pituitary of Bos indicus and Bos taurus x Bos indicus crossbred young bulls treated with recombinant bovine somatotropin
The effects of breed and of recombinant bovine somatotropin (rbST) treatment on growth hormone gene expression were studied in young bulls. The experiment was completely randomized in a [2 × 2]-factorial arrangement, using ...
Longitudinal analysis of the effects of IGF1-SnaBI genotypes on the growth curve of Angus bull calves
The Insulin Growth Factor 1 (IGF1) has been proposed as a candidate gene for growth related traits as it plays a central role in growth and development of mammals. A relationship between serum IGF1 concentration and different ...

Basic ingredients for mathematical modeling of tumor growth in vitro: Cooperative effects and search for space
Based on the literature data from HT-29 cell monolayers, we develop a model for its growth, analogous to an epidemic model, mixing local and global interactions. First, we propose and solve a deterministic equation for the ...
Analysis of longitudinal growth increment data using mixed-effects models: Individual and spatial variability in a clam
(Elsevier Science, 2010-07)
Modeling growth is required in many ecological studies and stock assessment applications, but most fish and shellfish growth analyses focus on the estimation of average parameters, which do not provide a complete description ...
