(14) Ceres circulated the letter, which was published in full-page ads in the Washington Post and Financial Times.
(15) "I can say conclusively that the hacked emails are just blips of information that will have absolutely no impact whatsoever on the push to get policymakers to back the science," said Anne Kelly, the policy director at Ceres, a sustainable business network whose members include PepsiCo, American Airlines and Bloomberg.
(16) Triacylglycerol lipase (EC 22.214.171.124) from rape (Brassica napus L. cv Ceres) is quite easily prepared from the 100,000 x g supernatant of cotyledon homogenates.

(adv.) Before; sooner than.
(adv.) Rather than.
(v. t.) To plow. [Obs.] See Ear, v. t.
(1) At saturating concentrations of ER, plasmids bearing one, two, and four EREs in tandem bound approximately one, two, and four dimeric ER molecules, respectively.
(2) Interestingly, each of these fragments had a perfect palindromic estrogen responsive element (ERE) (GGT-CANNNTGACC).
(3) These data suggest that flanking DNA sequences may exert a significant effect on the activity of EREs as hormone-dependent transcription activators.
(4) In 11 spontaneously breathing patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in acute ventilatory failure, we measured the total inspiratory (WItot) and total resistive (WI + Eres) work rate of breathing, together with lung mechanics (dynamic pulmonary elastance and inspiratory and expiratory pulmonary flow resistance).
(5) This element binds to the estrogen receptor in vitro as assessed by gel retardation assay similar to the vitellogenin gene ERE.
(6) The two polypeptides are different as judged by peptide mapping, and only the 85-kDa polypeptide can be cross-linked to the bromodeoxyuridine-substituted synthetic ERE by UV irradiation.
(7) Two methods have been suggested for the calculation of pHapp and the loss of activity on particle preparation, these methods are based on the use of the ERE in conjunction with experimental data.
(8) These results suggest that the ability of ER and TR to functionally discriminate between an ERE and a TRE is a result of dimerization of their DBDs.
(9) The presence of the biologically active hER is confirmed in co-injection experiments, in which HEO is co-introduced with a CAT reporter gene under the control of a vitellogenin promoter containing or lacking the ERE.
(10) Gene transfer experiments using estrogen-responsive cells have shown that the 13 bp perfect palindromic element GGTCACTGTGACC found upstream of the Xenopus laevis vitellogenin gene A2 promoter mediates hormonal stimulation and thus, was called the estrogen-responsive element (ERE).
(11) The ovalbumin promoter half-palindromic ERE motif located close to the TATA box was required for the activity of the distal DH3 ERE, but could be replaced by the binding sites of other transactivators.
(12) The equilibrium constant for the redox equilibration of fatty acid synthase in a glutathione redox buffer is 15 mM (Ered + GSSG in equilibrium Eox + 2GSH).
(13) When sequenced, these elements showed remarkable diversity and were different from the consensus vitellogenin A2 ERE.
(14) However at 32 degrees C Ta, there was an increase in rectal temperature in response to haloperidol application; this hyperthermia was due to a decrease in both the ear blood flow and respiratory evaporative heat loss (Eres).
(15) The affinity of estradiol binding to receptors was reduced only 2- and 5-fold, respectively, in the double and quadruple Cys to Ala mutants, and estradiol was an effective stimulator of transcription from an estrogen-responsive reporter gene [(ERE)2-TATA-CAT].
(16) A stimulatory estrogen response element (ERE) was localized to a 32-bp region between -547 and -516 bp.
(17) In these genes, two ERE homologues, which have only low, if any, regulatory capacity on their own, act synergistically to achieve high estrogen inducibility.
(18) "Gnnmph, I can't 'ave it 'ere, I 'aven't 'ad my enema," wails a labouring housewife, straining fruitlessly on a communal tenement bog as horrified neighbours look on in their rollers.
(19) This ERE also mediated down-regulation by progestins in the presence of the progesterone receptor, even though it has no progesterone receptor binding ability.
(20) This 67 bp region contains a consensus for the core sequence of the glucocorticoid responsive element (GRE) and the estrogen responsive element (ERE).
