(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.

(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).
(a.) Furnished with a horn or horns; furnished with a hornlike process or appendage; as, horned cattle; having some part shaped like a horn.
(1) After calving, probably the position of new follicles is temporally influenced by direct signals from the uterine horns affected differently by pregnancy.
(2) Severity of leukoaraiosis around the frontal horns of the lateral ventricles correlated significantly with severity of leukoaraiosis of the centrum semiovale adjacent to the bodies of the lateral ventricles.
(3) Spinal cord stimulation would suppress at least the dorsal horn neurons which were destroyed by various kinds of diseases.
(4) This study presents data supporting a selective antinociceptive role for DA at the spinal level, where it has a widespread antinociceptive influence, on cells in both the superficial and deeper dorsal horn.
(5) On Days 12-14 each gilt received twice daily infusions of Day 15 pCSP in one uterine horn and SP in the other uterine horn.
(6) In 25 rabbits, endometrium from the right uterine horn was transplanted onto the peritoneum (Experimental group = Group E).
(7) Differential pulse voltammetry used in combination with an electrochemically treated carbon fiber electrode allowed the detection of 5-hydroxyindoles (5-HI) in the dorsal horn of the urethane-anesthetized rat.
(8) Uterine blood flow to both uterine horns was measured by microsphere and by tritiated water steady-state diffusion methodology.
(9) But Hey Diddly Dee, in Sky Arts' latest Playhouse Presents season, could only manage 71,000 viewers, despite the combined star power of Kylie Minogue, David Harewood, Peter Serafinowicz and Mathew Horne.
(10) A few with low endometrial receptor levels had normal livers but at least one sterile uterine horn.
(11) It is concluded that chronic peripheral nerve section affects the anatomical and physiological mechanisms underlying the formation of light touch receptive fields of dorsal horn neurons in the lumbosacral cord of the adult cat, but that the resulting reorganization of receptive fields is spatially restricted.
(12) The concordance for this disease in these two patients of nonconsanguineous parentage with no family history of the disorder suggests the possibility of sublethal intrauterine injury to anterior horn cells.
(13) Subpopulations of DRG neurones that subserve distinct sensory modalities project to discrete regions in the dorsal horn.
(14) Phospholipase A2 has been purified from the venom of Horned viper (Cerastes cerastes) by gel permeation chromatography followed by reverse-phase HPLC.
(15) In ventral horn motoneurons and neurons of nucleus dorso-medialis (C1) pronounced staining was found after a total dosage of 1200 micrograms HgCl2.
(16) The influence of embryos on growth of the uterus was determined by comparing uterine length, weight and diameter between gravid and nongravid horns within unilaterally pregnant gilts.
(17) Postmortem examination showed axonal pathology of the anterior horns and roots of the spinal cord, and white matter hypoplasia of the brain.
(18) Histochemically the lowered activity of enzymes was localized mainly in the neuropil of: striatum, the Broc's nuclei and rhinencephalon: in the nervous cells of: Ammon's horn, nuclei of thalamus and in neocortex.
(19) Thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) has been identified recently in fibers and cell bodies in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord, but its function in the dorsal horn is not known.
(20) With immunocytochemical techniques, SP immunoreactivity (SP-I) and CGRP-I were localized in myometrial nerves throughout the uterine horns, with nerves immunoreactive for CGRP being the more numerous.
