(8) The presence of a previously unreported dipeptide transport mechanism within blood leukocytes and the selective enrichment of the granule enzyme, DPPI, within cytotoxic effector cells of lymphoid or myeloid lineage appear to afford a unique mechanism for the targeting of immunotherapeutic reagents composed of simple dipeptide esters or amides.

(10) So I am, of course, intrigued about the city’s newest tourist attraction: a hangover bar, open at weekends, in which sufferers can come in and have a bit of a lie down in soothingly subdued lighting, while sipping vitamin-enriched smoothies.
(11) The interpretation of the data is supported by studies on 15N- and 13C-enriched ferredoxin (Fd) from Anabaena 7120, where the 15N signals can be clearly correlated with the corresponding 14N signals and where the 13C signals are strongly enhanced.
(12) TPIA itself has no effect on the pattern of protein labeling in either the "soluble" or a plasma membrane-enriched fraction.
(13) Isoprenylated proteins were enriched in the detergent phase upon partition with the non-ionic detergent Triton X-114.
(14) These killer cells could lyse a wide range of syngeneic and allogeneic lymphoid tumour cell lines in vitro, and it was found that cell suspensions from nude mice were always significantly more active than those from normal mice, and that the most active effector population was a polymorph-enriched peritoneal-exudate cell suspension.
(15) Four fractions enriched, respectively, in plasma membrane (PM), smooth endoplasmic reticulum (SER), rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER), and mitochondria were isolated from estrogen-dominated rat myometrium.
(16) The first step is the preparation of a globulin-enriched fraction by precipitation with ammonium sulfate at 50% saturation, or of an immune-complex-enriched fraction by precipitation with 5% polyethylene glycol 6000.
(17) Physicochemical characterization of the monomeric, diacetylenic phospholipids illustrates the similarities to naturally occurring lipids, similarities that are confirmed by the capacity to enrich the membranes of A. laidlawii to the level of 90% diacetylenic lipid.
(18) A brevibacterium, strain TH-4, previously isolated by aerobic enrichment on the monocyclic monoterpenoid cis-terpin hydrate as a sole carbon and energy source, was found to grow on alpha-terpineol and on a number of common sugars and organic acids.
(19) The following 10 products were tested: Ensure Plus, Ensure, Enrich, Osmolite, Pulmocare, Citrotein, Resource, Vivonex TEN, Vital, and Hepatic Acid II.
(20) Slight but significant shortening of the latency of initial positivity in the evoked potential was observed after rearing in the enriched condition as compared to the data obtained from the littermates that were reared in the standard or impoverished conditions.
(a.) Of or pertaining to money, or consisting of money; pecuniary.
(1) The International Monetary Fund, which has long urged Nigeria to remove the subsidy, supports the move.
(2) He said: "Monetary policy affects the exchange rate – which in turn can offset or reinforce our exposure to rising import prices.
(3) An employee's career advancement, professional development, monetary remuneration and self-esteem often may depend upon the final outcome of the process.
(4) When you have champions of financial rectitude such as the International Monetary Fund and OECD warning of the international risk of an "explosion of social unrest" and arguing for a new fiscal stimulus if growth continues to falter, it's hardly surprising that tensions in the cabinet over next month's spending review are spilling over.
(5) As he sits in Athens wondering when the International Monetary Fund is going to deliver another bailout, George Papandreou might be tempted to hum a few lines of Tired of Waiting for You.
(6) Britain will be the best performing of the world's major economies this year with growth of 2.9%, according to the International Monetary Fund, as consumer spending rebounds, inflation remains low and unemployment continues to fall steadily.
(7) The euro’s weakness – and its move to near-parity with the dollar – has come after a period of low and even negative interest rates as well as a programme of monetary stimulus measures from the European Central Bank.
(8) Ahead of a meeting of eurozone finance ministers, International Monetary Fund officials and the European Central Bank on Greece on Monday, the official made plain that there was unlikely to be any quick agreement.
(9) As Carsten Brzeski , senior economist at ING , puts it: Data released since the April rate-setting meeting have provided further evidence that more monetary action could be needed in the euro zone...
(10) Which would be fine if the separate economies in question were sufficiently aligned to be treated as one bloc for the purposes of monetary policy; but surely the contrasting fortunes of the core and peripheral countries even before 2008 suggest that is not (yet) the case?
(11) "If required, we will act swiftly with further monetary policy easing.
(12) That could make it more difficult to gain a majority decision to change monetary policy in either direction," says Nick Bate, economist at Bank of America in London.
(13) As the eurozone experience proves, sustaining a monetary union requires banking, fiscal and full economic union.
(14) The evidence increasingly shows that monetary policy, broadly defined and effectively deployed, can work, but with two caveats.
(15) Completing monetary union means four things – a banking union, a fiscal union, an economic union, a democratically legitimised political union.
(16) A few emerging-market economies have similar wobbles to Iceland but get assistance from the International Monetary Fund.
