(1) For this, different detergents such as Triton X-100, CHAPS and n-octyl beta-D glucopyranoside were tested at various concentrations, durations and temperatures of incubation.
(2) At detergent concentrations above their critical micelle concentrations, C12E8 was also much more effective than CHAPS, suggesting that micelles are not involved.
(3) That’s plain wrong, has been for decades, and a clever chap like Nelson should know it.
(4) End-on views of G on virus clearly showed triangles consisting of three dots indicating the trimeric nature of native G. End-on views of CHAPS-isolated G showed very similar triangles confirming that, using this detergent, G was solubilized in its native trimeric structure.
(5) Previous investigations (El Mestikawy et al., J Neurochem 51: 1031-1040, 1988) have shown that 5-HT1A binding sites (R[5-HT1A]) solubilized by CHAPS from rat hippocampal membranes can be modulated by guanine nucleotides, as expected from their solubilization together with associated G regulatory proteins (G).
(6) Initially, peripheral polypeptides were removed from apically enriched vesicles by washing with alkaline buffer (pH 10.8) containing 2 mM CHAPS.
(7) The enzymes could be solubilized from the membrane fractions using CHAPS, and the detergent-soluble activity partially restored by addition of phospholipids.
(8) Furthermore, the effects of detergents other than CHAPS on hydrodynamic parameters and on [3H]TCDD binding to the receptor were studied.
(9) Cation exchange chromatography on carboxymethylcellulose-Sephadex with a starting buffer of pH 5 containing 2 mM CHAPS plus 20 mM beta-OG, followed by a pH 8 buffer, showed a very small OD peak at the void volume (P) and a second peak with about 95% of the protein (E).
(10) The binding of CHAPS to the SynChropak Propyl stationary phase and its effects on retention were found to be readily reversible.
(11) Leukotriene C4 (LTC4) synthase was solubilized from the microsomes of guinea-pig lung by the new procedures of a combination of 3-[3-cholamidopropyl)dimethylammonio)-1-propanesulfonate (CHAPS), digitonin and KCl.
(12) These treatments also caused an altered distribution of phosphorylated integrin between the CHAPS soluble and insoluble fractions.
(13) The ryanodine receptor protein of sheep cardiac muscle sarcoplasmic reticulum membranes functions as a ligand-regulated ion channel following solubilization with the zwitterionic detergent CHAPS (3-[(3-cholamidopropyl)-dimethylammonio]-1- propane sulphonate); purification by density gradient centrifugation, reconstitution into proteo-liposomes and incorporation into planar phospholipid bilayers.
(14) The chap who assessed my brother was a physiotherapist,” she said.
(15) The augmentation of tone was endothelium-dependent as it did not occur following functional destruction of the endothelium by perfusion of the vascular bed with the detergent CHAPS (0.3%) for 150s.
(16) Isoelectric focusing in 2% 3-[(3-cholamidopropyl)dimethylammonio]-1-propanesulfonate (CHAPS) without urea gives good results as does 2% Nonidet-P40 with 8 M urea.
(17) Sodium nitroprusside was approximately 200 times less potent than acetylcholine in the presence of the endothelium and was the only vasorelaxant to be active after destruction of the endothelium by perfusion with 0.3% CHAPS; in the absence of the endothelium it was 3.7 times more potent as a vasodilator than in its presence.
(18) Among three detergents tested, CHAPS is the best in preserving hormonal binding affinity and specificity.
(19) In addition, the 44% peak became increasingly resistant to the inhibitory effect of CHAPS.
(20) Optimal yield was obtained by pretreatment of whole M. pneumoniae cells with buffer containing 1% Chaps and subsequent extraction with octylglucosid at a detergent to protein ratio of 5 and at octylglycoside concentrations between 1.5 and 2%.
(n.) A brood or hatch of birds; an old bird with her brood of young; hence, a small flock or number of birds together; -- said of game; as, a covey of partridges.
(n.) A company; a bevy; as, a covey of girls.
(v. i.) To brood; to incubate.
(n.) A pantry.
(1) We strolled across springy heather and moss as wet as a sponge, and a strange cackling call of “go-back, go-back” rose on the wind: small coveys of red grouse whirred away from us.

(3) That action signals this administration’s commitment to protecting the interests of transgender people in this context and sends a message to state officials that the federal government has taken a clear position on the substantive legal issues in the case, said Georgia State University law professor Russell Covey.
(4) Donna Covey, its chief executive, said: "Councils must ensure that those in greatest need of housing are given priority, so it would be unjust and inhumane to force refugees to the end of the queue simply because they were not born in the UK.
(5) Sometimes only a word or touch of the hand can covey the physician's support and understanding which are so meaningful for a terminally ill patient.
