(1) Previous attempts to purify this enzyme from the liquid endosperm of kernels of Zea mays (sweet corn) were not entirely successful owing to the lability of partially purified preparations during column chromatography.
(2) First, it has diverted grain away from food for fuel, with over a third of US corn now used to produce ethanol and about half of vegetable oils in the EU going towards the production of biodiesel.
(3) Dry matter and starch intakes were greater when corn was fed than when barley was fed.
(4) Development of folate deficiency was evaluated in young chicks fed diets containing corn and soybean meal as major constituents.

(6) In Experiment 1, chicks 24 days old were fed mixtures of untreated and inoculated corn containing citrinin to provide 0, 50, 100, 150, 200, and 250 micrograms of the toxin per gram of blended corn.
(7) Mice administered chloroform in corn oil displayed a significant degree of diffuse parenchymal degeneration (5 of 10 males and 1 of 10 females) and mild to moderate early cirrhosis (5 of 10 males and 9 of 10 females); significant pathological lesions were not observed in the animals administered corn oil without chloroform nor in mice receiving chloroform in 2% Emulphor.
(8) Ammoniation of corn, peanuts, cottonseed, and meals to alter the toxic and carcinogenic effects of aflatoxin contamination has been the subject of intense research effort by scientists in various government agencies and universities, both in the United States and abroad.
(9) It was found that ammoniation inactivated the aflatoxins and reduced the carcinogenicity of the contaminated corn to a level that was not significantly different from that with the basal control diet.
(10) Ribosome-inactivating proteins were found in high amounts in one line of cells of Phytolacca americana (pokeweed) cultured in vitro and, in less quantity, in lines of Saponaria officinalis (soapwort) and of Zea mays (corn) cells.
(11) Two-day-old poults were fed diets containing no added fat [44.6% starch, 2.2% ether extract by weight (HC)], 10% tallow (T), or 10% corn oil [(CO) 29.0% starch, 10.9% ether extract].
(12) Free fatty acids from both coconut and corn oils reduced diet palatability and intake; those from tallow and coconut oil markedly interfered (in vitro) with rennet clotting of milk replacers.
(13) They dealt in dozens of different commodities – from major grains such as wheat and sorghum to specialised food aid products such as corn-soy blend.
(14) Rats fed tryptophan-poor corn diets have reduced levels of brain serotonin and show increased responsiveness to electric shock.
(15) Percent apparent digestibilities for DM, NDF, and N for corn and corn-sunflower were similar and greater than for sunflower: DM (69.6, 68.2, 57.4); NDF (68.1, 61.5, 51.6); and N (66.3, 66.5, 63.6).
(16) Compared to fiber-free, feeding corn bran increased binding in the duodenum 30% and ileum 50% but decreased binding in the jejunum 44%, and feeding guar gum increased binding in the colon 73% but decreased binding in the jejunum 40%.
(17) Corn oil feeding decreased the transcriptional rate.
(18) Rats whose diet was restricted in calories by 40% exhibited no mammary tumors (coconut oil as primary dietary fat) or 75% fewer tumors (corn oil as dietary fat) compared to ad libitum-fed controls; they also exhibited 47% fewer colonic tumors.
(19) Anthracene, chrysene, benzo(e)pyrene and perylene did not significantly suppress the antibody-forming cell response compared to the corn oil vehicle controls.
(20) Acarbose significantly reduced the satiety effect of corn starch in lean rats (p less than 0.001), and further attenuated satiety in obese rats (p less than 0.02).

(1) She held her service game to go 2-1 up and then broke to 30 after Cornet double-faulted.
(2) By this he presumably meant a cornet, which is at least an instrument, albeit not one that appears anywhere on Polar Bear’s album.
(3) Cornet, the 25th seed, had never beaten a top-20 player at a grand slam in 13 attempts.
(4) Chelsea overcome nerves to top group and move into last 16 at Porto’s expense Read more Although Paco Alcácer drew a save from Anthony Lopes, Lyon were the better side, allowed to travel a long way when they came forward, and it was not a huge surprise when Cornet scored.
(5) – but the tournament is not over for me.” In the last 16 Cornet will play the exciting 20-year-old Canadian Eugenie Bouchard, who reached the French Open semi-final earlier this month.
(6) She is clearly capable of bouncing back but Mouratoglou, speaking on Monday, less than 24 hours after her shock defeat by Alizé Cornet of France , said the American was not her usual competitive self.
(7) But while Cornet’s nerves must have been break-dancing around her body she didn’t show it.
(8) The broad similis group of Cornet & Chateau (1971), under which these 10 species of Synhelea were originally assembled, is not only maintained but expanded by a further 11 species.
(9) Three came and went before Cornet finally got the break and after that she never looked back.
(10) She double-faulted to give Cornet two breakpoints only to recover before, at 1-1, deuce, the umpire called them off.
(11) Grass is Williams’ domain, whereas Cornet had won just 10 of her 25 matches on the surface.
(12) But at 5-3 Cornet held her nerve and sealed the set by smashing a short ball away.
(13) Cornet won the first game of the second set and, having rediscovered her rhythm and confidence, then broke to go 2-0.
(14) The authors indicate the presence in People's Republic of Congo of the five following sandflies: Sergentomyia decipiens Theodor, 1931; Sergentomyia dissimillima Abonnenc, 1972; Sergentomyia tauffliebi Abonnenc and Cornet, 1971; Sergentomyia wansoni Parrot, 1938 and Sergentomyia squamipleuris Newstead, 1912.
(15) For months the paternity of little George (named after a cornet-playing gamekeeper) was in question.
(16) On one occasion tonsillitis turned out to be a magnificent slimming technique until I discovered 99 flake cornets were quite soothing.
(17) Not so long ago Cornet, a 24-year-old from Nice, hated playing on grass.
(18) After the break because of the rain I was so slow,” Cornet said.
(19) Cornet thumped her racquet bag in frustration but Williams’ winners kept coming.
(20) It was a surprise that followed hot on the heels of Williams’ exit at the hands of the unfancied Alizé Cornet and there was more drama to come for the world No1 when she had to pull out of her third-round doubles match with sister Venus.
