(15) Regional changes in concentrations of histamine (HA), serotonin (5-HT) and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) in the rat brain were investigated after diarrhea induced by castor oil.
(16) The effects of oil components in the formulated vehicle on the permeation of diclofenac across the skin were in the following order: squalane greater than or equal to squalene greater than liquid paraffin greater than middle chain triglyceride greater than olive oil greater than castor oil.
(17) Pretreatment of intact castor bean endosperm tissue with tunicamycin partially inhibits the cotranslational core glycosylation step and results in the accumulation of a single sized unglycosylated precursor polypeptide of relative molecular mass 59 000.
(18) In solvent-pretreated rats, diarrhea was always observed within 90 min after castor oil, reflecting a state of hyperpropulsive activity of the gut, but never (up to 8 h) after paraffin oil, reflecting normal intestinal propulsion (which amounted to an average distance of 91% of the total length of the small intestine in 90 min).
(19) Studies have been made on the peroxidase activity of metmyoglobins in animals from various ecological groups--the horse Equus caballus, cattle Bos taurus, beaver Castor fiber, otter Lutra lutra, mink Mustela vison and dog Canis familiaris.
(20) Healthy subjects and conventional as well as germ-free rats also excrete these substances after ingestion of castor oil.

(3) A servo controlled transapical LV to aortic bypass system employing a roller pump was evaluated.
(4) Afternoon Delights doesn't have anything approaching a mission statement – it's just two middle-aged men arsing about, frankly – but its gleeful anarchism can be riotously funny: witness the pair as free runners, declaring "war against the urban environment", or their magnificently coiffed Rock'n'Rollers, with the aid of subtitles, showing off their moves on the streets of Ashford, Kent.
(5) The patient is allowed to do functional exercises 24 hours after reduction with the aid of the spring stepping roller, which not only helps dissipate swelling in the early stage but also remold the articular facet.
(6) The system includes a membrane oxygenator and a roller pump.
(7) Since tobacco is known to be mutagenic and carcinogenic, urinary cotinine was estimated in bidi rollers and control subjects as an index of tobacco-specific exposure while the concentration of urinary thioethers was determined to ascertain exposure to electrophilic moieties.
(8) A covalently bonded heparin-coated extracorporeal membrane oxygenation system and a roller pump were used for the bypass.
