CLINICAL MEASUREMENT - ANNOTATIONS

The Clinical Measurement Ontology (CMO), Measurement Methods Ontology (MMO), and Experimental Condition Ontology (XCO) are currently being developed at the Rat Genome Database. For more information about these vocabularies please see Shimoyama et al. Three ontologies to define phenotype measurement data. Front Genet. 2012;3:87.

Accession:CMO:0002460 term browser browse the term
Definition:A calculated measurement in which the difference between the contractile force of a blood vessel in response to a specified dosage of potassium chloride and the baseline contractile force exerted by that vessel in the absence of any external stimuli, is divided by the baseline contractile force measurement and the result expressed as a percentage. Potassium chloride is the salt of the potassium cation (K+) and the chlorine/chloride anion (Cl-). It is used as an eletroylyte replenisher and has mild vasoconstrictive properties when applied directly to blood vessels.
