(v. t.) To break forth.
(1) "This is the third event in the last few days following An-26 and SU-25 planes being brought down.
(2) The various evocational changes appear to form sets of interconnected systems and this complex network seems to embody some plasticity since it has been possible to suppress experimentally some of the most universal evocational events or alter their temporal order without impairing evocation itself.
(3) Models able to describe the events of cellular growth and division and the dynamics of cell populations are useful for the understanding of functional control mechanisms and for the theoretical support for automated analysis of flow cytometric data and of cell volume distributions.
(4) Stress is laid on certain principles of diagnostic research in the event of extra-suprarenal pheochromocytomas.
(5) The origins of aging of higher forms of life, particularly humans, is presented as the consequence of an evolved balance between 4 specific kinds of dysfunction-producing events and 4 kinds of evolved counteracting effects in long-lived forms.
(6) Moreover, homozygous deletion of the FMS gene may be an important event in the genesis of the MDS variant 5q- syndrome.
(7) Brain damage may be followed by a number of dynamic events including reactive synaptogenesis, rerouting of axons to unusual locations and altered axon retraction processes.
(8) The west Africa Ebola epidemic “Few global events match epidemics and pandemics in potential to disrupt human security and inflict loss of life and economic and social damage,” he said.
(9) In crosses between inverted repeats, a single intrachromatid reciprocal exchange leads to inversion of the sequence between the crossover sites and recovery of both genes involved in the event.
(10) Further study both of the signaling events that lead to MPF activation and of the substrates for phosphorylation by MPF should lead to a comprehensive understanding of the biochemistry of cell division.
(11) To a supporter at the last election like me – someone who spoke alongside Nick Clegg at the curtain-raiser event for the party conference during the height of Labour's onslaught on civil liberties, and was assured privately by two leaders that the party was onside about civil liberties – this breach of trust and denial of principle is astonishing.
(12) A second Scottish referendum has turned from a highly probable event into an almost inevitable one.
(13) 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.
(14) Cardiovascular disease event rates will be assessed through continuous community surveillance of fatal and nonfatal myocardial infarction and stroke.
(15) Spontaneous reports of suspected adverse reactions may be the only way of revealing very rare events but they present great difficulties of rational interpretation.
(16) A good understanding of upper gastrointestinal physiology is required to properly understand the pathophysiological events in various diseases or after operations on the upper gastrointestinal tract.
(17) We have examined the initial events in myelin synthesis, including the insertion and orientation of PLP in the plasma membrane, in rat oligodendrocytes which express PLP and the other myelin-specific proteins when cultured without neurons (Dubois-Dalcq, M., T. Behar, L. Hudson, and R. A. Lazzarini.
(18) These findings suggest that in hamsters (i) A and B antigens are tumor-related antigens; (ii) H, Le(b), Le(x) and Le(y) are oncofetal antigens; and (iii) fucosylation is an important event in cell differentiation.
(19) The incomplete penetrance of the neoplastic phenotype and the monoclonality of lymphoid tumors suggest that tumor formation in v-fps mice requires genetic or epigenetic events in addition to expression of the P130gag-fps protein-tyrosine kinase.
(20) Additionally, the "early warning" capability of SaO2 monitoring was analyzed by recording the severity and outcome of hypoxemic events during treatment.
