(v. i.) To vomit.
(1) With fields and fells already saturated after more than four times the average monthly rainfall falling within the first three weeks of December, there was nowhere left to absorb the rainfall which has cascaded from fields into streams and rivers.
(2) The following model is suggested: exogenous ATP interacts with a membrane receptor in the presence of Ca2+, a cascade of events occurs which mobilizes intracellular calcium, thereby increasing the cytosolic free Ca2+ concentration which consequently opens the calcium-activated K+ channels, which then leads to a change in membrane potential.
(3) Each point of the interleukin cascade reaction was examined.
(4) All cellular signals characterized so far are reverted during retrodifferentiation: Redistribution of PKC and down-regulation of c-fos and c-jun contribute to an interruption of the differentiation-associated transsignaling cascade.
(5) Present antihypertensive therapy is directed largely at secondary factors dependent upon or influencing the primary phospholipase C cascade.
(6) Since testosterone influenced both tissue stores and PDBu-stimulated secretion of LHRH and GAP, this steroid may selectively regulate biosynthesis and secretion of pro-LHRH-derived peptides through activation of the metabolic cascade involving the PKC system.
(7) Extracellular signals that promote cell growth activate cascades of protein kinases.
(8) Using serine proteinase inhibitors and antibodies to plasminogen activators as well as a newly described collagenase inhibitor we demonstrate that a protease cascade leads to the activation of an enzyme(s) that cleaves collagen IV.
(9) Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) has a similar hormone-like action and activates the signal transfer cascade that eventually leads to platelet aggregation as well as vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation.
(10) However, the role of calcium homeostasis in regulating several biochemical pathways implicated in other steps of the metastatic cascade suggests that calcium channel antagonists could also inhibit metastasis by other mechanisms.
(11) Since ADH exerts its effects by activation of adenylyl cyclase (AC), further experiments were performed to identify the site at which CP inhibits this cascade.
(12) Autoantibodies which interfere with the function of enzyme cascade systems have also been described in diseases such as acquired haemophilia (anti-factor VIII antibodies) and glomerulonephritis (C3 nephritic factor).
(13) The cyclic adenosine nucleotide pathway is turned off by kinase A activity, whereas the inositol trisphosphate cascade is terminated by kinase C. The data support the concept that desensitization of odorant responses involves phosphorylation of key elements in the transduction cascade.
(14) These hormonal responses trigger a cascade of metabolic adjustments leading to catabolism and substrate mobilization in the postoperative period.
(15) The series filter model is compatible with a simply physical model consisting of cascaded chemical reactions whose forward rate constants are reciprocals of the filter time constants, whose reverse rate constants are negligible, and in which the concentration of an intermediate product controls membrane current.
(16) E capture IC via complement receptors, type 1 (CR1) which can bind to C3b and C4b ligand sites generated on IC during activation of the complement cascade.
(17) The EU was not properly promoting cascade use either he said.
(18) Speculatively, the blockage by dbcAMP of the morphogenetic cascade in the co-cultured system may be related to the inhibition by dbcAMP of testis cord formation in organ cultures of fetal gonads reported by others.
(19) Component of the cascade model represented adventitia and media layers of the wall.
(20) These data suggest that sCR1 inhibits the Arthus reaction by interrupting the activation of the C cascade, hence limiting the detrimental immune complex-induced tissue damage in vivo.
(n.) A shell, used as a die. See Props.
(v. t.) To support, or prevent from falling, by placing something under or against; as, to prop up a fence or an old building; (Fig.) to sustain; to maintain; as, to prop a declining state.
(v.) That which sustains an incumbent weight; that on which anything rests or leans for support; a support; a stay; as, a prop for a building.
(1) The calcium channel blockers 'DMDP' [N-3,4-dimethoxyphenethyl)-N-methyl-2-(2-naphthyl-m-dithane-2-prop ylamine)] and verapamil inhibited the active efflux of adriamycin from adriamycin-resistant P388 leukemia cells but had no effect on the drug-sensitive cell line.
(2) Moscovici added that France wants the summit to set up a eurozone banking union, which would take on responsibility for propping up failing banks and guarantee depositors' savings across the 17 countries.
(3) The "Be Kind Rewind Protocol", as he calls it, involves setting up small studios with modest sets and facilities – props, back-projection footage, video cameras – so that groups of people can make their own amateur movies together according to anti-auteurist rules drawn up by Gondry.
(4) A popular strain of foreign policy thought has long held that the US should be guided primarily by self-interest rather than human rights concerns: hence, since the US wants its Fifth Fleet to remain in Bahrain and believes ( with good reason ) that these dictators will serve US interests far better than if popular will in these countries prevails, it is right to prop up these autocrats.
(5) Quiet crisis: why battle to prop up Italy's banks is vital to EU stability Read more The country’s third-largest lender has already been bailed out twice in modern Italian history but is likely to need a third multibillion-euro intervention by the Italian government – a move that would need Brussels to break new rules designed to prevent such taxpayer bailouts after the 2008 global financial crisis.
(6) 15 human tumour cell lines (lung, breast and colon) have been evaluated for their sensitivity to the quinone based anti-cancer drugs Mitomycin C, Porfiromycin, and EO9 (3-hydroxymethyl-5-aziridinyl-1-methyl-2-(IH-indole-4,7-dione)prop-beta- en-alpha-ol).
(7) Although the CBI supported the reforms, there was heavy lobbying from other EU business groups to reject the reforms, that would have helped to prop up the price of carbon dioxide permits to businesses.
(8) Replays cast doubt on the penalty decision, the ball having been touched by the Australian replacement scrum-half, Nick Phipps, before the referee, Craig Joubert, adjudged the Scottish prop Jon Welsh caught it while standing in an offside position.
(9) We know this system doesn't work – and yet we prop it up with ignorance and indifference.
(10) Theresa May’s plan for a loose alliance with the Democratic Unionists to prop up her government was thrown into confusion on Saturday night after the Northern Ireland party contradicted a No 10 announcement that a deal had been reached.
(11) A variety of interventional endovascular instruments have been produced and used in a wide field of pathologies: balloons for proximal clamping, distal embolization by particles, arterial desobstruction by seeking devices, propping of vascular lumen by stenting, in situ infusion of drugs (fibrinolysis), filters, foreign body retrieval systems.
(12) Mariah Carey 's need for a staff member to carry her drink and prop up the bendy bit of her straw is what makes me love her so much.
(13) Prop therapy also reduced atrial and RV hypertrophy.
(14) Inside, Suge is propped up on a mattress on the floor watching soap operas, an overflowing spittoon at his side.
(15) However, charities must expect to be "pit props" to some extent.
(16) He pointed out that some of the fall was down to the expiry of a government scheme expiring that had "artificially propped up" the housing market over the past year.
(17) It was pored over by line producers, prop masters, location scouts, production designers, scenic designers, costume designers, directors, assistant directors, second assistant directors, and second second assistant directors – at each step becoming more real, as if emerging from the shimmer of some distant desert horizon.
(18) The compound (E)-4-2-(5,6,7,8)tetrahydro-5,5,8,8-tetramethyl-2-naphtalenyl)prop enyl benzoic acid (Ro 1374-10) was approximately 2-3 orders of magnitude more potent than all-trans-retinoic acid in inhibiting breast carcinoma cell proliferation while the compound SRI-6409-40, which differs from Ro 1374-10 only by the position of a methyl group, was 50-fold more potent than Ro 1374-10.
(19) The abandon of comedy is always there, though, the feeling of, “Fuck it, let’s try that TONIGHT!” because the audience’s expectations are different at a late-night comedy thing and they don’t mind crappy props and people reading scripts, and if it dies there’s always tomorrow.
(20) The collapsing economy was propped up only by loans from wealthy Gulf countries.
