(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.

(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 fall, or perpendicular descent, of the water of a river or stream, or a descent nearly perpendicular; a cascade; a cataract.
(n.) An arrangement of a woman's back hair over a cushion or frame in some resemblance to a waterfall.
(n.) A certain kind of neck scarf.
(1) Grid reference: 54.5763, -2.8734 Photograph: www.wildswimming.com Lower Ddwli Falls, Waterfall Woods, Brecon Beacons In the south-west hills of the Brecon Beacons , near Ystradfellte, you'll find some of the most amazing waterfall plunge pools in Britain.
(2) I was encouraged by a website called Rio Hiking , which lured me in with exciting descriptions of scaling Sugar Loaf and Corcovado, of rafting rivers, rappelling waterfalls and forging paths through rainforest, but they failed to answer my emails.
(3) Our project was huge and our overall quality assurance process at the time was very basic and waterfall-esque,” recalls one quality assurance worker at EA.
(4) 1) During changes in PGCV below a threshold value, the coronary circulation exhibits traditional waterfall behavior.
(5) Plus there’s a children’s pool, a tiny waterfall, a sunbathing zone, showers, changing rooms, and parking.
(6) Here the two waterfalls can cause small landslips, so do take care crossing them.
(7) Strauss uses his vast orchestra to depict the experiences of his character on the mountain: a distant hunting party (listen for the 12 offstage horns), waterfalls, meadows, a dark, threatening forest, losing the path, the triumphant view from the summit and the best storm in music since Rossini's William Tell Overture (listen out for the wind machine).
(8) Tapajós was investigating the head of an illegal gambling cartel, Carlinos Cachoeira – also known as Charlie Waterfall – and his sprawling web of influence.
(9) Several studies of flow through collapsible tubing deformed by external pressures have led to a concept known as the "vascular waterfall".
(10) In the shadow of the Black Cuillins, the icy water of Allt Coir a'Mhadaidh spills down a series of waterfalls and pools.
(11) • Rorbu for four from £140 a night, svinoya.no Grande Hytteutleige, Geirangerfjord Facebook Twitter Pinterest Waterfalls, vertiginous green slopes and a meandering, idyllic waterway explain why Unesco-protected Geirangerfjord is one of Norway’s premier tourist spots.
(12) At a site near Boti waterfalls in southern Ghana a total of 14 644 female and two male Simulium squamosum were caught in four nights in Monks Wood light traps.
(13) Each roomy retreat sleeps five, and has a patio and lounge, but only Berghylur backs onto a waterfall.
(14) These data do not support the presence of a "sluice" or "waterfall" effect in the umbilical-placental circulation of the sheep fetus in utero.
(15) The entire population of the Umgeni Waterfall Institution for mentally retarded Whites was karyotyped using aceto-orcein and ASG banded preparations.
(16) Theatrically backdropped by conical Great Sugarloaf mountain, the estate is landscaped with terraces, lakes and ponds, and also embraces the country's highest waterfall.
(17) The path starts climbing up the side of a pretty beck with a waterfall.
(18) For an intimate encounter with this geology and the water that helped to form it, head to the canyon systems of Wadi Mujib to take on the Malaqi Trail, a sandstone assault course of rocky scrambles and dizzying waterfall rappels.
(19) The findings agree with the predictions of the vascular waterfall model.
(20) In addition, Pla-Ppa relationships, obtained at a constant flow, have no discriminating ability in identifying the presence or absence of a waterfall along the circulation.
