K., Romain, R. E., and Herz, R. E. (1987) Am.
(9) These results demonstrate that increased availability of galactose, a high-affinity substrate for the enzyme, leads to increased aldose reductase messenger RNA, which suggests a role for aldose reductase in sugar metabolism in the lens.
(10) Intravesical BCG is clearly superior to oral BCG, and controlled studies have demonstrated that percutaneous administration is not necessary.
(11) We have previously shown that serotonin is present in secretory granules of frog adrenochromaffin cells; concurrently, we have demonstrated that serotonin is a potent stimulator of corticosterone and aldosterone secretion by adrenocortical cells.
(12) Microionophoretically applied excitatory amino acids induced firing of extracellularly recorded single units in a tissue slice preparation of the mouse cochlear nucleus, and the similarly applied antagonist 2-amino-5-phosphonovalerate (2APV) was demonstrated to be a selective N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist.
(13) The results demonstrated that K2PtCl4 was bound to a greater degree than CDDP in this system with 3-5 and 1-2 platinum atoms respectively, bound per transferrin molecule.
(14) These studies, in addition to demonstrating that the placenta contains TRH deamidase activity, suggest that losses of fetal TRH through the placenta are not large.
(15) Light microscopic studies of pancreata from mice sacrificed at this time demonstrated insulitis and beta cell necrosis.
(16) Western blot analysis of these mitochondria using an antibody against carnitine palmitoyltransferase II purified from beef heart demonstrates a 68-kDa protein, which under ischemic conditions apparently is decreased by 2 kDa.
(17) Acquired drug resistance to INH, RMP, and EMB can be demonstrated in M. kansasii, and SMX in combination with other agents chosen on the basis of MIC determinations are effective in the treatment of disease caused by RMP-resistant M. kansasii.
(18) In 1 of the 3, anterior capsular detachment was also demonstrated radiographically and confirmed surgically.
(19) This result demonstrates that branching enzyme belongs to a family of the amylolytic enzymes.
(20) Histological studies of nerves 2 years following irradiation demonstrated loss of axons and myelin, with a corresponding increase in endoneurial, perineurial, and epineurial connective tissue.
(n.) The finger next to the thumb; the index.
(1) For this purpose, the fastest possible self-paced single isometric forefinger extensions and the fastest alternating forefinger movements were tested.
(2) In 34 subjects (29 subjects vibrations exposed and 5 controls), the variations of seric levels of endothelin (Et) after Cold Test were investigated, while vasomotor modifications were monitored and recorded by forefinger volumetric pulsoplethismography.
(3) Subjects maintained a steady force level between their thumb and forefinger for 30 s. The force level varied from weak (0.2 kg) to strong contractions (7 kg).
(4) At different moments, I notice him throw his arms wide, as if someone had scored a goal and use both forefingers to add double emphasis to his points.
(5) Blindfolded subjects clasped the opposite surfaces of an object with the same frontal profile as the visual figure between thumb and forefinger and moved the latter together from end to end across the object.
(6) The most affected finger is the ring-finger, the least affected one is the forefinger.
(7) During the investigation of somatosensory evoked cortical potentials arising from a complex vibro-tactile stimulus to the forefingers, an abnormal lack of lateralisation of response was found in 10 out of 21 schizophrenic patients.
(8) The temporal and spatial structures organization varied in the different tasks: (1) Simultaneous agonistic performance (forefinger flexion on both sides), (2) simultaneous antagonistic performance (e.g.
(9) The points of attachment are thumb, forefinger, and middle finger.
(10) Monkeys were trained to exert a maintained isometric pinch with the thumb and forefinger.
(11) A disk (coin) turned end over end between thumb and forefinger feels longer to the turning hand.
(12) As a result of this combination of movements, the forefinger pad was placed directly onto the object.
(13) The second study showed that manual biases induced by visual roll motion are not overcome using a thumb-and-forefinger (pyramidal) motor strategy, and may not be equivalent to the "giant hand" illusion that is believed to reflect the predominance of the vestibulospinal (extrapyramidal) motor pathways during extreme spatial disorientation.
(14) Among 350 inhabitants of two villages, 31 (8.9%) cleaned their teeth using table salt and charcoal applied to their forefinger or a Melastoma brush.
(15) The stoppage of movement observed in young individuals in the MP articulation of the forefinger occurs under the effect of trauma, - under normal articular conditions, - on strongly flexed finger, under the effect of powerful ulnar duction.
(16) Prints were taken every 2.5 min from the left middle and forefinger, and skin conductance level (SCL), number of spontaneous fluctuations (SF) and heart rate (HR) were recorded for the corresponding intervals.
(17) In eight healthy individuals, the skin fold between the thumb and the forefinger was treated with 0.05% clobetasol propionate ointment under a hydrocolloid occlusive dressing.

(19) A 41-year-old man, who had lived in Kawasaki city, was seen in April 1988 because of sores on the dorsum of left forefinger which had been present for one month.
(20) Compared to (1) and (2), conditions (3) and (4) included a temporal delay between the performance of the two forefingers; compared to (1) and (3), conditions (2) and (4) required the subjects to perform movements of opposite directions with their two forefingers.
