(14) Several lines of experimental evidence suggest that an anterior-posterior gradient of cyclic AMP exists in migrating pseudoplasmodia of the cellular slime mold Dictyostelium discoideum, and that this gradient may be responsible for control of the proportions of stalk and spore cells that form during culmination.

(17) His comic adventures are too many to relate, but it may be said that they culminate in a café of 'singing waiters' where, after a wealth of comic 'business' with the tray, he shows his disdain for articulate speech by singing a vividly explicit song in gibberish.
(18) Enzyme activity in developing spore cells increased 10-fold during differentiation from myxamoebae (0 h) to the culmination stage (20 h) and decreased slightly at sorocarp (24 h).
(19) In 1993, at the Branch Davidian religious compound outside Waco, Texas, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms didn’t wait for the sect leader, David Koresh, to leave before attempting to arrest him and got into a gun battle that claimed 10 victims and led to a disastrous 51-day siege culminating in dozens more deaths.
(20) We propose a model whereby a protein repressor, under the control of PKA, inhibits precocious induction of stalk cell differentiation by DIF and so regulates the choice between slug migration and culmination.
(a.) Of or pertaining to the vertex; situated at the vertex, or highest point; directly overhead, or in the zenith; perpendicularly above one.
(a.) Perpendicular to the plane of the horizon; upright; plumb; as, a vertical line.
(n.) Vertical position; zenith.

(1) Vertical gratings are tinged with green and horizontal gratings with pink.
(2) A modification of Mason's vertical banded gastroplasty for morbid obesity is presented, along with experience from 62 treated patients.
(3) When compared with lissencephalic species, a great horizontal fibrillary system (which is vertically arranged in gyral regions) was observed in convoluted brains.
(4) The relapse was 80% in the sagittal plane, 70% in the transverse plane, and 12% in the vertical plane.
(5) However, the effect of prior jaw motion and the effect of the recording site on the EMG amplitudes and on the vertical dimension of minimum EMG activity have not been documented.
(6) Results on resting blood pressure, serum lipids, vital capacity, flexibility, upper body strength, and vertical jump tests were comparable to values found for the sedentary population.
(7) We performed a prospective study on 68 eyes of 68 patients to compare the vertical cup-disk ratio obtained with the video-ophthalmograph to that obtained with manual analysis of black-and-white stereoscopic photographs.
(8) 3-D curves were computed with an apparent rotation around the vertical axis Z.
(9) The following oculomotor paradigms were investigated: horizontal and vertical saccades of different sizes (10-80 degrees), smooth pursuit eye movements, optokinetic and vestibular nystagmus.
(10) From a psychological-vertical aspect the group is rather a common situation in which the individual members remain in their experience separated from each other.
(11) Single vertical spin and electron microscopy analyses of these HDL subpopulations demonstrated that acid elution from the affinity columns caused no detectable change in size and density of the three subpopulation particles.
(12) 'Vertical' sections are plane sections longitudinal to a fixed (but arbitrary) axial direction.
(13) Although active head movements reversed horizontal vestibulo-ocular reflexes, vertical vestibulo-ocular reflexes in light and darkness were normal.
(14) To meet these prerequisites we have introduced some technical refinements: (1) computer-controlled rectilinear translations of the target in combination with different angular positions of the source and (2) computer-controlled rotations of the target around a vertical axis in combination with different angular positions of the source.
(15) These observations suggest that the persistently mobile, vertically positioned unbonded cup remain stable despite the stress of significant trauma.
(16) First, the possibility of "vertical" transmission of the virus was examined, as the Papio stock in Sukhumi was genetically homogeneous.
