(n.) A genus of plants (order Amaryllidaceae) of which the chief species is the maguey or century plant (A. Americana), wrongly called Aloe. It is from ten to seventy years, according to climate, in attaining maturity, when it produces a gigantic flower stem, sometimes forty feet in height, and perishes. The fermented juice is the pulque of the Mexicans; distilled, it yields mescal. A strong thread and a tough paper are made from the leaves, and the wood has many uses.
(1) With respect to its primary specificity, as well as its pH-dependence there was a resemblance with chymotrypsin, although the rate of hydrolysis of Agave protease is much lower.
(2) A menu entitled tacos prehispánicos offers a far-reaching conflagration of edible insects, such as sautéed grasshoppers, gusanos de maguey (grubs found in agave plants), and crispy fried black beetles called cocopaches .
(3) The toxin in Kleingrass has been suspected of being a steroidal saponin as Kleingrass produced characteristic birefringent crystals similar to those produced by saponin-containing plants such as Agave lecheguilla and Tribulus terrestris.
(4) The findings of these trials are consistent with reports from abroad that ovine hepatogenous photosensitization, caused by Agave lechuguilla and Narthecium ossifragum, can be induced with crude saponins from the respective plants.

(11) THE COOL KIDS Lux Central Facebook Twitter Pinterest Photograph: Arya Daryani In other cities, Lux Central would be too cool for school; here, it may have all the hipster hallmarks – permanent semi-darkness, tattooed staff, designer brews, aged mescal cocktails dotted with jewels of agave – but it’s impossible to remain chill in the face of its pancake breakfasts (from $9), steak’n’eggs lunches and fabulous in-house bakery.
(12) The larvicidal properties of 34 plant extracts were tested against Aedes fluviatilis (Lutz) (Diptera: Culicidae) larvae, at 100, 10 and 1 ppm concentrations; 26.6% of the extracts enhanced larval mortality (alpha = 0.05) at 100 ppm (Anacardium occidentale, Agave americana, Allium sativum, Coriandrum sativum, Nerium oleander, Spatodea campanulata, Tibouchina scrobiculata and Vernonia salzmanni).

(18) A new steroidal glycoside, agaveside D, isolated from the fruits of Agave cantala was characterized as 3 beta-(alpha-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1----2),beta-D-glycopyranosyl- (1----3)-beta-D-glucopyranosyl[beta-D-xylopyransoyl-(1----4)-alpha -L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1----2)]-beta-D-glucopyranosyl)-25R-5 alpha-spirostane on the basis of chemical degradation and spectrometry.
(19) Tolerances to low and high temperatures, such as the ability of agaves and cacti to tolerate extremely high tissue temperatures of 70 degrees C, are discussed from both cellular and ecological perspectives.
(20) 2 Combine the tahini with the agave syrup and soy sauce.
(n.) The wood of the agalloch.
(n.) A genus of succulent plants, some classed as trees, others as shrubs, but the greater number having the habit and appearance of evergreen herbaceous plants; from some of which are prepared articles for medicine and the arts. They are natives of warm countries.
(n.) The inspissated juice of several species of aloe, used as a purgative.
(1) A definite difference in plaque consistency was alos observed.
(2) Inactivation of G-protein as measured by PDE turnoff and dissociation signal recovery is found to be faster at higher than lower [GTP], consistent with the observation that the higher GTPase activity associated with the higher Km alos resides in the G-protein.
(3) We have used 2-(beta-(3-125iodo-4-hydroxyphenyl)-ethylaminoethyl)-tetr alo ne ([125I]HEAT or BE2254), an alpha 1-selective antagonist, and [3H]yohimbine, an alpha 2-selective antagonist, to demonstrate and characterize binding sites in basolateral membranes from rat kidney cortex.

(7) The bacterium grew in PYF broth containing barbaloin and converted barbaloin to aloe-emodin anthrone.
(8) These antagonists alos reduced concentration dependently the near-maximal amylase response to bombesin, the concentration required for 50% reduction (IC50) being about 10(-7) M for RC-3095 and RC-3100 and 10(-6) M for RC-3120.
