(4) From the decreased alignment at the N-terminus and the presence of additional residues compared with bacterial phosphorylases, we conclude that the regulatory sequences that also carry the phosphorylation site in the muscle enzyme were joined to a presumed ancestral precursor gene by gene fusion after separation of the eukaryotic and prokaryotic lines of descent.
(5) It was determined that in the doses used, 4-MAPC failed to prevent testicular descent.
(6) With grievous amazement, never self-pitying but sometimes bordering on a sort of numbed wonderment, Levi records the day-to-day personal and social history of the camp, noting not only the fine gradations of his own descent, but the capacity of some prisoners to cut a deal and strike a bargain, while others, destined by their age or character for the gas ovens, follow "the slope down to the bottom, like streams that run down to the sea".
(7) The patients ranged in age from 15 to 69 years (mean, 37) and were predominantly male (14 patients) and white (only 1 was of oriental descent).

(10) Using chi 2 analysis, we found that failure of external version was significantly associated with obesity, descent of the breech into the pelvis, decreased fluid, and fetal back positioned posteriorly.

(12) Mortality levels of 100% for Culex quinquefasciatus and Musca domestica test insects were recorded under normal operating conditions during routine scheduled passenger flights with disinsection procedures undertaken at "blocks-away" or at "top-of-descent".
(13) Irwin said both Mohamed and CF were British citizens of Somali descent who had travelled to Somaliland – CF in 2009 and Mohamed in 2007.
(14) Through this technique, testicular descent can be observed in about 50% of male fetuses examined at weeks 28-30.
(15) Descent of a prosthesis below the desired inframammary crease is an infrequent but disturbing complication of augmentation mammaplasty, which may occur for a number of reasons.
(16) The percentage of women with the descent of uterus and vagina, uterus displacement and effort urine incontinence was found to increase with age, length of employment and number of deliveries, particularly high percentage being the one relating to women lifting, just once, heavy objects.
(17) Since the anterior colporrhaphy according to Stoeckel or Kelly is not capable of curing severe forms of stress incontinence with rotational descent of the urethra, our results show that an additional retropubic urethropoly is desirable and justified in these cases.
(18) The amyloid fibril protein seen in patients of Portuguese, Japanese, and Swedish descent in the U.S. mainly consists of a variant form of transthyretin (also called prealbumin) with the substitution of methionine for valine at position 30.
(19) This raises the possibility of two lines of descent from a common ancestor.
(20) The precise identities of the alleles are irrelevant to the linkage analysis so long as identity-by-descent and linkage-phase information are preserved.
(n.) The act of invading; the act of encroaching upon the rights or possessions of another; encroachment; trespass.
(n.) A warlike or hostile entrance into the possessions or domains of another; the incursion of an army for conquest or plunder.
(n.) The incoming or first attack of anything hurtful or pernicious; as, the invasion of a disease.
(1) By presenting the case history of a man who successively developed facial and trigeminal neural dysfunction after Mohs chemosurgery of a PCSCC, this paper documents histologically the occurrence of such neural invasion, and illustrates the utility of gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance scanning in patient management.
(2) This study compared the non-invasive vascular profiles, coagulation tests, and rheological profiles of 46 consecutive cases of low-tension glaucoma with 69 similarly unselected cases of high-tension glaucoma and 47 age-matched controls.
(3) Implantation of the mouse embryo involves the invasion of the secondary trophoblast giant cells of the ectoplacental cone (EPC) into the uterine decidua.
(4) We have used a modification of the rotating-frame imaging technique to measure PCr-to-ATP ratio non-invasively in human heart.
(5) Thirty had an in situ tumor (mean age: 30 years) and 34 had an invasive adenocarcinoma (mean age: 45 years), 7 of whom died of their cancer.
(6) This case is unusual in that it demonstrated no malignant epithelium beyond that of a borderline tumor, but met the criteria of malignancy because of its invasiveness and metastasis.
(7) In invasive epidermoid carcinoma, the accuracy with the self-collected specimens approached the physician-scraped specimens.
(8) Rifampin is recommended as a prophylactic treatment for intimate contacts of young children who develop invasive infections with Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib).
(9) It is concluded that the transcutaneous ultrasound technique provides a reliable, rapidly available, non-invasive method to confirm the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis.
(10) Subsequent radiological follow-up demonstrated the rapid growth of the tumor hence exhibiting a very invasive form.
(11) The circle rate correlated with the extent of mural invasion.
(12) Minimal breast cancer should include lobular carcinoma in situ (lobular neoplasia) and ductal carcinoma in situ regardless of nodal status, and (tentatively) invasive carcinoma smaller than 1 cm in total diameter, if axillary lymph nodes are not involved.
(13) The diagnosis of meningeal cyst was confirmed in a non-invasive way by MRI showing a mass with the same signal intensities as CSF on both T1 and T2 weighted images.
(14) The carcinoma and lymphoma of the stomach were both small, and the depth of invasion was localized to the mucosa and submucosa, respectively.
(15) A transurethral prostatic resection for prostatism in a 73 year old man showed a cluster of richly capillarised clear cells originally thought to be indicative of invasive carcinoma.
(16) However, the typically deep invasion of the former tumors and their histologic features indicate that they are highly aggressive neoplasms.
(17) The presence of prostatic invasion either into the stroma or involving prostatic ducts and acini only had no adverse effect on outcome.
(18) Fifty-seven patients underwent local excision of an invasive distal rectal cancer as an initial operative procedure with curative intent.
(19) That most of the neoplasms found were adenomas and not invasive cancer may be due to the relative youth of most of those screened.
(20) At 24 weeks, 24-h mean blood pressures (MBP), measured invasively, were 121 mmHg (perindopril), 137 mmHg (captopril), 140 mmHg (hydralazine), 149 mmHg (isradipine) and 146 mmHg (metoprolol), compared to control values of 177 mmHg (SHR) and 132 mmHg (Wistar-Kyoto rats, WKY).
