(n.) A species of large South African antelope (Oreas canna). It is valued both for its hide and flesh, and is rapidly disappearing in the settled districts; -- called also Cape elk.
(n.) The elk or moose.
(1) A study was carried out to determine the effect on the reproductive performance of female Glossina morsitans morsitans Westwood when allowed to feed, in vitro, for 63 days on fresh defibrinated blood of buffalo, bushbuck, cattle, eland, oryx, warthog, waterbuck or wildebeest.
(2) The course of experimental infection of a type SAT 1 FMDV strain was studied in buffalo, sable antelope and eland following tongue inoculation and contact and has been compared with that in cattle.
(3) The cattle recovered from the Theileria species (eland) were fully susceptible to a lethal challenge of a T. parva (Muguga) stabilate.
(4) Theileria infections were induced in cattle by feeding ticks on them from 3 sources: (a) adult rhipicephalid ticks obtained from the vegetation in a paddock containing an eland EAO at the Animal Orphanage, Nairobi National Park, Kenya, (b) Rhipicephalus appendiculatus adults fed as nymphs on the same eland, (c) R. pulchellus adults fed as nymphs on an eland W 68 captured in the Machakos district of Kenya.
(5) In contrast, attempts to transmit the Theileria of wildebeest and eland to cattle through rhipicephalid ticks failed, despite the establishment of these parasites of the ticks.
(6) Both eland were harbouring Theileria parasites at the time nymphal ticks were fed.
(7) Pronounced, disperse, chronic, multinodular folliculitis induced by this hair follicle inhabitant in the skin of eland, Taurotragus oryx, is described at the histological level.
(8) Two captive eland (Taurotragus oryx) were inoculated and their blood investigated as with the experimental buffalo.
(9) There is too much bureaucracy," said Ivan Eland, director of the Center on Peace & Liberty at The Independent Institute think-tank.
(10) Parasitological complex studies of the available eland stock (60 individuals) were first carried out.
(11) All methods gave comparable results thus confirming our previous findings (1) and those reported by Elander (2).
(12) The autopsy of animals have shown that five species of six species of nematodes and one species of cestodes are common parasites of ruminants of the Ukraine steppe zone and two species are specific parasites of eland.
(13) Experiments have been made on 4 elands at the age of 3--4 months, mean body weight 78 kg.
(14) The histomorphology of formalin-fixed micro and macrosarcosporidian cysts of Grant's, Thomson's gazelle, impala, wildebeest, Bubal hartebeest, Cape eland, red duiker, Kirk's dik-dik, defassa waterbuck, Bohor reedbuck, African buffalo, giraffe, warthog, and giant forest hog is described.
(15) However, 50% or more of helmeted guinea fowl and kudu from the Andries Vosloo Kudu Reserve; helmeted guinea fowl, scrub hares and eland (Taurotragus oryx) from the Mountain Zebra National Park; helmeted guinea fowl, kudu, domestic sheep, goats and cattle on the farm "Bucklands", and caracal (Felis caracal) from the Cradock and Southwell areas of the eastern Cape Province were infested with immature A. marmoreum.
(16) For ruminants (sheep, hartebeest, duiker and kob), excluding eland, given legumes the value was 8-6, and for sheep and duiker given herbs the value was 14-7.
(17) Application of various lipid solvents and dimethyl sulphoxide to the skin of cattle, sheep, eland and African buffalo exposed to an air temperature of 20 degrees C caused an increase in cutaneous moisture loss.
(18) Defassa waterbuck and eland exhibited discharges which were accompanied by a gradual rise in basal level.
(19) Buffalo may play a role in the epidemiology of babesiosis in cattle, while eland most likely do not.
(20) The experimental data indicate that the East African buffalo can be a carrier of Babesia bigemina for at least 5 months, while this parasite did not survive in eland.
(n.) An organ for secreting something to be used in, or eliminated from, the body; as, the sebaceous glands of the skin; the salivary glands of the mouth.
(n.) An organ or part which resembles a secreting, or true, gland, as the ductless, lymphatic, pineal, and pituitary glands, the functions of which are very imperfectly known.
(n.) A special organ of plants, usually minute and globular, which often secretes some kind of resinous, gummy, or aromatic product.
(n.) Any very small prominence.
(n.) The movable part of a stuffing box by which the packing is compressed; -- sometimes called a follower. See Illust. of Stuffing box, under Stuffing.
(n.) The crosspiece of a bayonet clutch.
(1) Five of the nine normal livers had peribiliary glands that showed HLA-DR.
(2) Intestinal glands are not observed until 8.5cm, and are shallow in depth even in the adult.
(3) Our results show that large complex lipid bodies and extensive accumulations of glycogen are valuable indicators of a functionally suppressed chief cell in atrophic parathyroid glands.
(4) In this study, pinealectomy did not alter the inhibitory effect of testosterone on neuroendocine-gonadal activity in the male rat, suggesting that the pineal gland does not mediate the response of the rat hypothalamic-pituitary axis to testosterone.
(5) The epithelium of Brunner's gland stained intensely with Ricinus communis agglutinin-I (RCA-I), succinylated-WGA (S-WGA) and wheat-germ agglutinin (WGA), moderately with Bandeirea simplicifolia agglutinin-I (BS-I), Concanavalia ensiformis agglutinin (Con A) peanut agglutinin (PNA) and Ulex europaeus agglutinin-I (UEA-I) and occasionally with Dolichos biflorus agglutinin (DBA), Lens culinaris agglutinin (LCA) and soybean agglutinin (SBA).
(6) On the basis of obtained data on the uniformity of chemical compounds of the secretion of glands belonging to different groups their common origin has been suggested.
(7) When labelled long-chain fatty acids or glycerol were infused into the lactating goat, there was extensive transfer of radioactivity into milk in spite of the absence of net uptake of substrate by the mammary gland.
(8) Only methoxyindole acetic acid was detectable after incubation of unstimulated and alpha-adrenergic-agonist-treated pineal glands.
(9) The nature of the putative autoantigen in Graves' ophthalmopathy (Go) remains an enigma but the sequence similarity between thyroglobulin (Tg) and acetylcholinesterase (ACHE) provides a rationale for epitopes which are common to the thyroid gland and the eye orbit.
(10) An in vitro bioassay was used to examine [14C]glucose incorporation into polysaccharides in albumen glands (AGs) of susceptible M-line Biomphalaria glabrata infected with the NMRI strain of Schistosoma mansoni.
(11) During the development of Shvets' leukosis, the weight of spleen and lymph glands and their lymphocyte content change enormously while the number of plasmocytes rises exponentially.
(12) Between the 24th and 29th day mature daughter sporocysts with fully developed cercariae ready to emerge, or already emerged, could be seen in the digestive gland of the snail.
(13) The bursa of Fabricius, thymus glands and spleen of chickens were also shown to express mRNA coding for ANP.
(14) Accordingly, the present studies were conducted to determine whether acute OVX-induced FSH hypersecretion can be elicited in an animal model in which the anterior pituitary gland is isolated from diencephalic chemical signals, and if so, whether the hypersecretion could be abated by the FSH-suppressing protein, follistatin.
(15) Light microscopy of both apneics and snorers revealed mucous gland hypertrophy with ductal dilation and focal squamous metaplasia, disruption of muscle bundles by infiltrating mucous glands, focal atrophy of muscle fibers, and extensive edema of the lamina propria with vascular dilation.
(16) Following the study of total lipid and phospholipid contents of Harderian gland, we carried out analysis of glycolipid fractions.
(17) Exogenous rIL-2 restored T-cell proliferation only in the salivary gland cultures of this patient.
(18) In the univariate life-table analysis, recurrence-free survival was significantly related to age, pTNM category, tumour size, presence of certain growth patterns, tumour necrosis, tumour infiltration in surrounding thyroid tissue and thyroid gland capsule, lymph node metastases, presence of extra-nodal tumour growth and number of positive lymph nodes, whereas only tumour diameter, thyroid gland capsular infiltration and presence of extra-nodal tumour growth remained as significant prognostic factors in the multivariate analysis.
(19) Striated muscle fibres were found in each of twenty consecutive pineal glands cultured from individual neonatal rats.2.
(20) Type C-like particles were found inter- and intracellularly in gland and vessel lumina and scattered in the connective tissue.
