Definitions of STYGMATES
Sort: Oldest first
M. J. Cloquet has proposed this word, or Stigmates to designate the marks, in form of cicatrices, which remain on the peritoneum after the obliteration of the neck of a hernial sac. They are, commonly, radiated folds, of a whitish appearance, more or less thick, and of a fibrous or fibrocartilaginous nature.

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.
