(11) Recurrence of the dermatitis one day after amalgam dental fillings had been made and again one year later, this time without new fillings, raised the possibility that it was due to the old amalgam fillings.
(12) Atrioventricular (AV) delay that results in maximum ventricular filling and physiological mechanisms that govern dependence of filling on timing of atrial systole were studied by combining computer experiments with experiments in the anesthetized dog instrumented to measure phasic mitral flow.
(13) Rings of isolated coronary and femoral arteries (without endothelium) were suspended for isometric tension recording in organ chambers filled with modified Krebs-Ringer bicarbonate solution.
(14) These two enzymes may act jointly in filling up the gaps along the DNA molecule and elongating the DNA chain.

(2) The treatment has used this rilling with laser (12 cases) an endoscopic microsurgery (4 cases) and open surgery 2 times.
(3) Similarly to Kracmar, Hauswirth and Rilling, we conclude that there is a transition from a sympathotonic or normotonic reaction situation into a parasympathotonic reaction situation after carrying out ML.
(4) The 13C NMR spectrum of isolated nucleosome core particles contains many sharp resonances, including resonances of alpha- and beta-carbons, indicating that certain terminal segments of histones rich in basic residues are highly mobile (Hilliard, R. R., Jr., Smith, R. M., and Rill, R. L. (1986) J. Biol.
(5) The magnitude of the neighbor-exclusion parameter, the changes in spectral properties of (Phen)2CuI induced by DNA binding, and the increase in DNA solution viscosity upon (Phen)2CuI addition are consistent with a model for DNA binding by (Phen)2CuI involving partial intercalation of one phenanthroline ring of the complex between DNA base pairs in the minor groove as suggested previously [Veal & Rill (1989) Biochemistry 28, 3243-3250].

(9) Michaelis constants of 0.5 muM for both isopentenyl pyrophosphate and geranyl pyrophosphate are 3-20-fold lower than those found for prenyltransferase from yeast or pig liver (Eberhardt, N., and Rilling, H. C. (1974), J. Biol.
(10) At the same mo-ment he is "cheered by the music of a thousand tinkling rills and rivulets whose veins are filled with the blood of winter which they are bearing off"; at other times he eavesdrops on "the faint wiry peep" of the baby woodcock being led by their mother through the swamp.
(11) Each trunk, perhaps no more than a century old, was understated, its bark finely indented as if little rills of water had run through grey sand.
