(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.
(4) Patients undergoing dermabrasion or chemical peel procedures should be cautioned specifically against the use of aloe vera or vitamin E topically in the first weeks after surgery.
(5) The mechanism of action of aloe-emodin-9-anthrone, a decomposition product of barbaloin, in causing a significant increase in the water content of the rat large intestine, was investigated.
(6) It is the author's opinion that much of the macrotrauma is alos related to the biomechanical parameters of the foot type and lower leg function, indirectly or directly contributing to the mechanism of injury.
(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.
(9) At 2.3 h after oral administration of sennoside C, nearly equimolar amounts of aloe-emodin anthrone and rhein anthrone were detected in the large intestine of mice.
(10) Aloe vera preparations were evaluated for topical anti-inflammatory activity using the croton oil-induced edema assay.
(11) The tumoricidal activity was dependent on the dose of mitomycin C injected and it was alos detectable against allogeneic and xenogeneic tumor target cells.
(12) The results showed that tolbutamide and studied plants (except Aloe barbadensis) decreased significantly (p less than 0.05) the area under glucose tolerance curve, in relation with the water control.
(13) ALO 2145 appears to be effective in eliminating large, acute IOP elevations after argon laser trabeculoplasty.
(14) No antigenic relationship was found between ALO and Aerococcus viridans (NCTC 8251) in crossed immunoelectrophoretic assay.
(15) The total effective sGPT-lowering rate of Aloe injection on 38 patients of chronic hepatitis with positive HBsAg was 86.8%.
(16) The following agents were applied daily for a period of 27 days: scarlet red ointment, benzoyl peroxide lotion, bacitracin ointment, silver sulfadiazine cream, aloe vera gel, tretinoin cream, capsaicin cream, and mupirocin ointment.
(17) And when I got sunburnt, Roberto cut a fresh leaf of aloe vera for its soothing gel.
(18) Several biologically active substances, such as aloenin (1), magnesium lactate, aloe-emodin (4), barbaloin (5), and succinic acid, were found to be contained in the leaf juice of Aloe arborescens Mill.
(19) The intracanial and spinal subarachnoid space alos was invaded by disseminated embryonal carcinoma.
(20) ALO 2145 1% was shown to be effective and well tolerated in the dosage regimen employed in this study.
(n.) A bitter purgative principle in aloes.
(1) Aloin and aloeemodin do not influence directly the ribosomes, but they inhibit elongation factors and peptidyltransferase activities in the complete elongation system.
(2) Aloin and aloeemodin are responsible for the inhibitory effect of the solution of dry aloe extract.
(3) A simple and rapid liquid chromatographic method is described for the determination of barbaloin (aloin, 10-D-glucopyranosyl-1,8-dihydroxy-3-(hydroxymethyl)-9(10H)-anthraceno ne) in foods.
(4) A purified sample of aloe emodin was prepared from aloin, and its effects on the infectivity of herpes simplex virus type 1 and type 2, varicella-zoster virus, pseudorabies virus, influenza virus, adenovirus, and rhinovirus were tested by mixing virus with dilutions of aloe emodin for 15 min at 37 degrees C, immediately diluting the sample, and assaying the amount of infectious virus remaining in the sample.
