(n.) The act of placing in a circle, or round about, or the state of being so placed.
(v. t.) That which fills up or completes; the quantity or number required to fill a thing or make it complete.
(v. t.) That which is required to supply a deficiency, or to complete a symmetrical whole.
(v. t.) Full quantity, number, or amount; a complete set; completeness.
(v. t.) A second quantity added to a given quantity to make it equal to a third given quantity.
(v. t.) Something added for ornamentation; an accessory.
(v. t.) The whole working force of a vessel.
(v. t.) The interval wanting to complete the octave; -- the fourth is the complement of the fifth, the sixth of the third.

(v. t.) To compliment.
(1) We have cloned the phr gene that encodes DNA photolyase from Salmonella typhimurium by in vivo complementation of Escherichia coli phr gene defect.
(2) Patient plasma samples demonstrated evidence of marked complement activation, with 3-fold elevations of C3a desArg concentrations by the 8th day of therapy.
(3) Serum complement studies revealed decreased levels of C4, properdin, and C3.
(4) Release of 51Cr was apparently a function of immune thymus-derived lymphocytes (T cells) because it was abrogated by prior incubation of spleen cells with anti-thymus antiserum and complement but was undiminished by passage of spleen cells through nylon-wool columns.
(5) Many speak about how yoga and surfing complement each other, both involving deep concentration, flexibility and balance.
(6) This linkage information was used to design complementation tests to determine allelism with previously characterized complementation groups affecting sensitivity to radiation.
(7) Most of the antibodies had some degree of complement-independent neutralizing capacity, but in common was a large neutralization-resistant fraction of virus (range 13 to 78%).
(8) Intercistronic complementation of these mutants with pm1493 and dl121, two SV40 mutants that are defective in agnoprotein but encode wild-type T antigen, results in an increased synthesis of agnoprotein in the infected cells.
(9) These studies show that complement activation can frequently be detected in the plasma of IgA nephropathy patients.
(10) Usually they are characterized by an increased level of complement components involved in the classical pathway and therefore reflect activation by antigen antibody complexes.
(11) Allelic complementation was not observed, despite testing of a large number of allele pairs, and alleles suppressible by the ochre suppressor SUP11 were absent from a sample of 48 spontaneous mutants and occurred infrequently (7%) among a sample of ultraviolet-induced mutants.
(12) Besides various skin tests with the antigens candida, trichophyton, mumps, streptokinase-streptodornase, tuberculin, DNCB and KLH also in vitro experiments measuring the immunoglobulin- and complement concentrations, the antibody production to KLH, the lymphocyte transformation rate to PHA, Pokeweed, Con A, PPD were done nearly in all patients.
(13) Skin allografts survived longer on ALS-treated, complement-deficient (C5 negative) recipients than on ALS-treated, complement-competent (C5 positive) recipients.
(14) These antibodies are usually characterized by the conventional platelet complement fixation test.
(15) This syndrome is consistently correlated with abnormally elevated serum IgG levels, antinuclear antibodies, anti ds- and ssDNA antibodies, and circulating immune complexes, as well as depressed serum hemolytic complement.
(16) This study was conducted using a standard complement-dependent microcytotoxicity assay.
(17) A plasmid carrying this mutation, along with wild-type genes encoding the c and b subunits, was unusual in that it failed to complement a chromosomal c-subunit mutation on succinate minimal medium.
(18) Viruses isolated from ticks (Ixodes uriae) from a seabird colony on the Isle of May, Scotland, were shown by complement fixation tests to be related to the Uukuniemi and Kemerovo serogroups.
(19) In the present study, the role of antiperipheral nerve myelin antibody (anti-PNM Ab) in demyelination by generating the terminal attack complex (C5b-9) of complement was explored in patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and other demyelinating neuropathies.
(20) The same marker was found in all metaphases from 2 different metastases, but skin fibroblasts from the same patient had a normal chromosome complement.
