(16) It appears that the viscosity of the arterial wall must be the major source of attenuation in the larger arteries, while the viscosity of the blood plays a significant role only in the smaller vessels.

(18) We show that the two mutants (A44 and A46) affect attenuator control by different mechanisms.
(19) The type I cells are squamous and give off attenuated sheets of cytoplasm which spread widely over the septal surface; these sheets contain few organelles.

(n.) Remoteness of place; a remote place.
(n.) A space marked out in the last part of a race course.
(n.) Relative space, between troops in ranks, measured from front to rear; -- contrasted with interval, which is measured from right to left.
(n.) Space between two antagonists in fencing.
(n.) The part of a picture which contains the representation of those objects which are the farthest away, esp. in a landscape.
(n.) Ideal disjunction; discrepancy; contrariety.
(n.) Length or interval of time; period, past or future, between two eras or events.
(n.) The remoteness or reserve which respect requires; hence, respect; ceremoniousness.
(n.) A withholding of intimacy; alienation; coldness; disagreement; variance; restraint; reserve.
(n.) Remoteness in succession or relation; as, the distance between a descendant and his ancestor.
(n.) The interval between two notes; as, the distance of a fourth or seventh.
(v. t.) To place at a distance or remotely.
(v. t.) To cause to appear as if at a distance; to make seem remote.
(v. t.) To outstrip by as much as a distance (see Distance, n., 3); to leave far behind; to surpass greatly.
(1) The distance between the end of fic and the start of pabA was 31 base pairs.
(2) Standard nerve conduction techniques using constant measured distances were applied to evaluate the median, ulnar and radial nerves.
(3) Accuracy of discrimination of letters at various preselected distances was determined each session while Ortho-rater examinations were given periodically throughout training.
(4) The capillary-adipocyte distances were shorter and the vascularization density was higher in old rats.
(5) Within the capillary-perfused mucosa and muscularis (between 50 and 2000 microns from the urothelial surface), concentrations decreased by 50% for each 500-microns distance.
(6) When compared with nonspecialized regions of the cell membranes, these contact sites were characterized by a decreased intercellular distance, subplasmalemmal densities and coated pits.
(7) The distance of nucleoid sedimentation increased as a function of exposure temperature and exposure time, and was proportional to an increased protein to DNA ratio in the nucleoids.

(9) The authors used a linear multivariate regression to evaluate the effects of distance from the highway, age and sex of the child, and housing condition.
(10) Tests in which the size of the landmark was altered from that used in training suggest that distance is not learned solely in terms of the apparent size of the landmark as seen from the goal.
(11) The difference in Brazil will be the huge distances involved, with the crazy decision not to host the group stages in geographical clusters leading to logistical and planning nightmares.
(12) Long-distanced urethrocystopexy which permits to avoid an unwanted increase of outflow resistance with following retention of urine should be preferred.
(13) After using the OK method to obtain a distance curve for height, we introduce a new method (VADK) to derive velocity and acceleration curves from the fitted distance curve.
