In science:

There are different sources of limits on the number of extra-dimensions and the scale of quantum gravity for models with a large extra-dimensional volume.
A review of Quantum Gravity at the Large Hadron Collider
In the case of ADD, the LEP and the Tevatron set limits of the order of 1 TeV [42, 43] (for n=1 to 7 extra-dimensions) from the emission of Kaluza-Klein modes of the graviton and Drell-Yan processes.
A review of Quantum Gravity at the Large Hadron Collider
For instance, in the case of domain wall fermions, the finiteness of the extra 5th dimension implies that the decoupling of modes with different chirality is not exact, which produces a residual non-zero quark mass in the chiral limit.
Review of lattice results concerning low energy particle physics
The five-dimensional action can be constructed such that modes of opposite chirality are trapped at the four-dimensional boundaries in the limit of an infinite extent of the extra dimension [310].

Chiral Gauge Theories and Fermion-Higgs Systems
However, one might argue that the exotic fermions which give rise to these mixings necessarily appear in models with other forms of new physics, extra Z ’s for instance, and that these new effects might weaken significantly the mixing limits.
Exotic Fermions
Bounds on extra gauge bosons attainable from low energy neutral current precision experiments, measurements at the TRISTAN, LEP and SLC e+e− colliders, as well as at the HERA ep collider have been surpassed by direct limits obtained at the TEVATRON -p ¯p collider or will be from planned TEVATRON upgrades [22, 23].
