A preparation formerly recognized by the U.S.P. under the name abstractum, made by evaporating a fluidextract to a powder and triturating with sugar of milk; one part of the abstract was equal in strength to two parts of the drug or its extract. The official abstracts were of aconite, belladonna, conium, digitalis, hyoscyamus, ignatia, jalap, nux vomica, podophyllum, senega, and valerian.

Considered apart from its applications, as abstract science; considered apart from particulars, or in general, and hence abstruse; quality considered apart from substance. An abstract idea, an idea separated from a complex object, or from other ideas which naturally accompany it, as the solidity of marble contemplated apart from its colour or figure. Abstract terms, those which express abstract ideas, as beauty, whiteness, folly, roundness, without regard to any subject in which they exist; or the names of orders, genera, or species of things. Abstract numbers, numbers used without application to any particular objects, as 3, 7, 9; but when applied to anything, as 6 feet or 8 men, they become concrete. Abstract or pure mathematics, that which treats of the properties of magnitude, figure, or quantity, absolutely and generally considered, without restriction to any particular object; thus distinguished from mixed mathematics, which treats of the relations of quantity as applied to sensible objects, as astromony, mechanics, optics,&c.

ATP Binding Cassette, Sub Family B Proteins
- A subfamily transmembrane the superfamily TRANSPORTERS that closely related in GLYCOPROTEIN. When overexpressed, function as dependent efflux pumps able extrude lipophilic drugs, especially ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENTS, from cells causing resistance (DRUG RESISTANCE, MULTIPLE). Although P-Glycoproteins share functional similarities to MULTIDRUG RESISTANCE-ASSOCIATED PROTEINS they are two distinct subclasses of ATP-BINDING CASSETTE TRANSPORTERS, and have little sequence homology.
