(3) Previous attempts to purify this enzyme from the liquid endosperm of kernels of Zea mays (sweet corn) were not entirely successful owing to the lability of partially purified preparations during column chromatography.

(5) The sequential histopathologic alterations in femorotibial joints of partial meniscectomized male and female guinea pigs were evaluated at 1, 2, 3, 6, and 12 weeks post-surgery.
(6) Formerly, many patients in this category were considered either inoperable or candidates for total or partial nephrectomy.
(7) Histone mRNA, labeled with 32P or 3H-methionine during the S phase of partially synchronized HeLa cells, was isolated from the polyribosomes and purified as a "9S" component by sucrose gradient sedimentation.
(8) However, those studies used partial maximal expiratory flow volume (PMEFV) curves to assess lung function.
(9) The authors suggest that the outstanding high sensitivity of the above mentioned two tests applied parallelly reveals that they highlights partially different aspects of coronary artery disease, and that is why the overlapping between the methods is relatively small.
(10) Catheters containing 0% and 10% heparin were compared in each individual using ultrasound microflow velocimetry, permeability test, sequential determinations of activated partial thromboplastin time, heparin levels and generation of Fibrinopeptide A, beta thromboglobulin and Platelet factor 4.
(11) Rachitic bone lesions were only partially corrected by the high-Ca diet.
(12) We conclude that heparin plus AT III partially prevents the endotoxin-induced generation of PAI activity which seems to correlate with the reduced presence of fibrin deposits in kidneys and with a reduced mortality.
(13) (2) A close correlation between the obesity index and serum GPT was recognized by elevation of the standard partial regression coefficient of serum GPT to obesity index and that of obesity index to serum GPT when the data from all 617 students was analysed in one group.
(14) The conus was found to contribute little to forward flow under ordinary circumstances, but its contribution increased greatly during bleeding or partial occlusion of the truncus.
