Differential

A small charge added to the purchase price and subtracted from the selling price by the dealer for odd-lot quantities.

Differential

1. The degree of change in quality of the underlying asset on a futures contract that is allowed. Every futures contract specifies the quality of the commodity underlying it that must be delivered in order for the seller to fulfill the contract. The differential allows the seller to deliver a good of a different quality, at least within certain limits. Not all futures contracts allow for differentials.

2. A change in the location of delivery that some futures contracts allow the seller to make at his/her discretion.

differential

1. In commodities trading, the premium or discount in the futures contract price caused by delivering a commodity that does not exactly meet the standards fixed by the exchange. Allowances for these differentials are included in the contract specifications.

Because microRNAs and lncRNAs were prone to exert influence on associated protein-coding genes in transcription-related processes, we submitted a list of protein-coding genes which were significantly correlated with differentially expressed noncoding RNAs that is, 172 mRNAs correlated with lncRNAs along with a list of 214 mRNAs correlated with differentially expressed microRNAs, and 518 statistically differentially expressed mRNAs to MAS 3.
In total, 171 differentially expressed proteins were identified through iTRAQ.

All differentially expressed hippocampal genes were mapped to GO classification terms, the number of genes in each term was counted, and then the terms enriched in differentially expressed genes compared to the whole genome were identified using a hypergeometric test:

Washington, Sep 22 (ANI): Scientists have discovered several molecularly and cellularly different cortical areas in Broca's language region, the motor centre for speech-a finding that shows that our faculty of speech is actually embedded in a much more differentially developed brain landscape than we have believed for the past 150 years.
