...STE20 kinases A group of serine/threonine kinases involved in regulating a range of processes including the cell cycle, apoptosis, and stress responses. Yeast Ste20p (sterile 20 protein) is a mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase kinase (MAP4K) involved in the mating pathway. The human homologues, of which there are 28, have a conserved kinase domain but a diversity of additional domains involved in interactions with signalling systems and cytoskeletal-regulatory proteins. The Ste20 group kinases are further divided into the p21-activated kinase (...

...patterns of disease in the 20th century In Britain and other industrial nations at the end of the 20th century, more people than ever survive to old age, and most lead healthier lives than they did at the beginning of the century. Diseases once prevalent and deadly have become uncommon or rare, or even disappeared; but new causes of disability and premature death have emerged. There were greater changes in the incidence, prevalence, severity, and mortality of many diseases and disabilities in the 20th century than in any previous century. Accounting for...
