(4) UDP-galactose 4-epimerase is present in the dormant seed.
(5) We conclude that amino acid infusion can increase GFR, possibly by utilization of 'dormant cortical nephrons' together with a rise in net ultrafiltration pressure of other filtrating glomeruli, both due to afferent vasodilatation.
(6) Activation of the dormant embryos of Artemia salina was marked by a rapid increase in 32P uptake which reached a stationary phase after 6 h of activation.

(11) Dormant neuroblasts are found adjacent to the neuropil in late embryos and early first instar larvae.
(12) This procedure makes it possible to fix adequately dormant spores and thus compare the ultrastructure and histochemistry of dormant spores with those of germinated spores.
(13) Low temperature incubation after heat shock or the presence of an autoinhibitor will return activated spores to the dormant state.
(14) If it gets no response - perhaps because the letters are going to an old address - it will stop sending letters and statements and class the account as dormant.
(15) NADH oxidase and cytochrome c oxidase were present in dormant spores, germinated spores, and vegetative cells at all stages after germination, but succinate cytochrome c reductase was not present in dormant spores.
(16) Cryoscopic analysis of frozen sections provided indirect evidence for the presence of a waterproof layer limiting evaporation from living epithelial cells in dormant land snails.
(17) The 32P-labelled concatameric insert cut out from a plasmid pSPAv6.2(+), containing 6.2 copies of a full-length PSTV, was used to detect PSTV in dormant potato tubers by dot-blot hybridisation assay.
(18) Western blotting of dormant spore and vegetative cell fractions separated by SDS-PAGE demonstrated that GSLE is spore-specific and that greater than 90% of the GSLE is associated with the dormant spore cortex peptidoglycan as a phosphorylated 63kD pro-form, which could only be visualized after lysozyme digestion of the peptidoglycan.
(19) More importantly, we tested and verified the hypothesis that there is a relationship between concentrations of dormant, viable endospores of T. vulgaris in lake sediments and the extent of agriculture in the catchments of the lakes.
(20) Concentrations of cytochromes a, a(3), b, and c(+c(1)) increased during germination, outgrowth, and vegetative growth, but that of cytochrome o was highest in dormant spores.
(a.) Having lost motion, or the power of exertion and feeling; numb; benumbed; as, a torpid limb.
(a.) Dull; stupid; sluggish; inactive.
(1) With the cultures of mycoplasmas obtained from the eyes of human patients suffering from sympathetic ophthalmia, it was possible to produce the same symptoms in chickens as were described by the author in 1950 in sympathizing and sympathized human eyes, namely: torpid uveitis and papillitis, which dragged on for months, and affected not only the inoculated right eye, but also, after 3 weeks and more, the untouched left eye.
(2) In the absence of the effect, two latter variants of ulcers should be treated in the same way as primary torpid ulcers.
(3) Torpid facial ulcerations may occur as a result of lesions involving the trigeminal fibers.
(4) However, the slope of the relationship between C' and BM is almost 4-fold greater for normothermic than for torpid animals.
(5) The installation promotes acceleration of the correct diagnosis under the torpid and chronic inflammatory processes in the urethra.
(6) Obese mice were also torpid during the dark phase, whereas lean mice were active and had a normal body temperature at this time.
(7) The torpid type was significantly more frequently observed in patients with subclinical (asymptomatic) hymenolepiasis course than in patients with its clinical manifestation.
(8) The amount of secretion, hydrochloric acid, pepsin, and gastromuco-protein were decreased, the secretory effect being more slowly developed, the torpid secretion type being observed.
(9) On the whole, MBF is a benign condition; however, torpid forms are increasingly reported.
(10) The authors examined 120 patients with schizophrenia (torpid and paroxysmal-progressive) whose disease at different stages of its course was complicated by exogenous impacts (head trauma in 66 cases, neuroinfection in 15, intoxication in 16 and vascular brain disease in 23).
(11) All hormone levels were lower in torpid toads, which were found underground 1 week before the start of the breeding migration, than in active toads in the breeding season, although the levels were higher than those in the other months.
(12) On the basis of these findings a conclusion can be drawn that most of the cases of schizophrenia manifested in old age by the syndrome of involutional paranoid belong to a group of diseases with an early onset, prolonged torpid or latent course, and with increased progression of the process in advanced age.
(13) Because all species underwent seasonal changes in their patterns of hibernation, animals were compared in mid-winter when the duration of euthermic intervals was short and relatively constant and when the duration of torpid intervals was at its longest.
(14) The clinical picture was rather torpid, with a body temperature below 38 degrees C in 42 p. 100 of the cases, which delayed the diagnosis: the mean time interval between onset and diagnosis was 20 days.
(15) The authors consider it desirable that the following forms of this condition be singled out as a nosologic entity: (1) atopic neurodermatitis, a hereditary disease with characteristic immunologic shifts; (2) chronic diffuse neurodermatitis of adults, a disease developed by subjects without atopic anamnesis, characterized by a torpid course; remissions and exacerbations are not season-associated; (3) chronic local neurodermatitis, a disease with a typical morphology in foci of involvement, with prolonged remissions following intensive local therapy.
(16) The torpid process of chronic bronchitis, the two-phase pattern of the disease, dyspnea at 3-4 month intervals, intermissions, edema and failure of complex therapy with antibiotics and cardiac glycosides provided a tentative diagnosis of Legionella pneumonia with affection of the myocardium.
(17) Winter outdoor animals experiencing normal torpidity, however, exhibited reduced ATPase activity by about 50%.
(18) The patients with the left lesion were more characterized by psychastheniclike features, motor inhibition with marked rigidity and emotive poverty, torpidity of affects, hypochondriasis, readiness for overvalued formations.
(19) Herpes type infections in AIDS patients tend to be more severe, generalized and have a torpid evolution.
(20) Body contact with euthermic nestmates warmed torpid marmots passively.
