(1) Addition of 2,3-bisphosphoglycerate [Gri(2,3)P2] or inositol hexakisphosphate to Hbe(II)NO causes tension in the Fe-N(proximal His) bond, although the behaviour differs in detail from that of HbA(II)NO.
(2) This has been the rationale for the present efforts by investigators to form a standardized environmental inventory questionnaire, under the auspices of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Gas Research Institute (GRI), and Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).
(3) Escherichia coli GRI was isolated from an ear exudate of a newborn.
(4) To investigate this hypothesis, we determined the entire nucleotide sequence of an infectious proviral molecular clone of SIVagm (155-4) and partial sequences (long terminal repeat and Gag) of three other distinct SIVagm isolates (90, gri-1, and ver-1).
(5) In order to study the immediate grief reaction in parents of children dying in the hospital each parental reaction was scored on a 'grief reaction and intervention' (GRI) scale (minimum 0; maximum 4).
(6) The isoelectric point of the cefotaximase of E. coli GRI was 8.9 in comparison with 6.3 for TEM-3.
(7) The comparison of the therapeutic effects of three molecules belonging to the substituted benzamide family allows the following observations: --the three products are generally well tolerated by the organism; --at sufficient doses they act as a major tranquilizers: -sulpiride is chiefly a disinhibitor but also has antipsychotic properties; -sultopride is at first somewhat sedative, especially when given parenterally, then antipsychotic, and little by little desinhibiting; -GRI 16-65 is "soothing", "euphoriant", "sociabilizing", as well as antipsychotic.
(8) Differences in enterotoxin production between aminoglycoside-sensitive and -resistant MRSA isolates reflect subgroups previously defined by biotype, phage type, immunoblot and restriction enzyme fragmentation pattern data, and provide further evidence for the existence of two major MRSA clones in GRI.
(9) Three other strains of C. albicans (MRL 3153, GRI 681 and GRI 682) gave results similar to those obtained with strain GDH 2346.
(10) The equilibrium oxygen-binding properties of hemoglobins from reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus), musk ox (Ovibos muschatos) and a bat (Rousettus aegyptiacus) have been investigated with special reference to the effect of heterotrophic ligands such as chloride and 2,3-bisphosphoglycerate [Gri(2,3)P2].
(11) Extracellular polymeric material (EP) isolated from strain GDH 2346 inhibited adhesion of strains MRL 3153, GRI 681 and GRI 682 by more than 50%, but that of strain GDH 2023 by only 30%.
(12) A collection of 201 isolates of Staphylococcus aureus was examined: 152 methicillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA) comprised 48 blood culture isolates (BC) and 58 isolates from routine diagnostic specimens (RD) from Glasgow Royal Infirmary (GRI), and 46 strains from nasal swabs of patients attending a general practitioner (GP); 49 isolates were of methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) from GRI.
(13) This autoreduction occurs in the form of two parallel processes, which collapse into one intermediate rate in the presence of Gri(2,3)P2.
(14) On the other hand bat hemoglobin behaves in a completely different way and could be regarded as a type case of low-affinity hemoglobin since its functional properties are modulated neither by chloride nor by Gri(2,3)P2.
(15) Tadzio Mueller, Stine Gry Jonassen and Britain Nyboe, all spokespeople for Climate Justice Action, the umbrella organisation behind yesterday's Reclaim Power action, were picked up by police at different locations, before and during the demonstration.
(16) Heterogeneity was observed in the molecular weights of the gag, pol, and env gene products between SIV isolates from vervets [SIV(AGM(VER))] and grivets [SIV(AGM(GRI))].
(17) Phenotypically, SIV(AGM(VER)) isolates were distinguishable from SIV(AGM(GRI)) isolates by the apparent size difference of the major core antigen p24.
(18) Weight gain was small during the first 2 weeks of post-natal life but increased considerably over the subsequent weeks with an almost constant periodical increment (GRI) being maintained in all 4 groups during the first months of life.
(19) These strains, designated as glucose-repression insensitive (GRI) mutants, produced higher penicillin V titers than the wild-type strain in media containing lactose as the main carbohydrate source.
(20) A striking difference emerges where in the presence of chloride ions and in the absence of 2,3-diphosphoglycerate [Gri(2,3)P2] a strongly reduced exothermic oxygenation process is observed for all ruminant Hb investigated with respect to HbA.

(1) When I commiserate about the overnight flight that brought them here, Linney gives a wry grimace.
(2) The image was widely shared online and taken as a wry comment on pictures of Donald Trump’s all-male Oval Office team.
(3) Putin could have been forgiven for allowing himself a wry grin, as another court comprehensively trashed Berezovsky's reputation.
(4) No wry observations or whoops-a-daisy trombones to subvert the conceit for period lolz.
(5) She frequently talks about herself as an object of wry or amused discovery.
(6) It was described as the "Twitter revolution" , but almost a year on from Iran's disputed presidential elections, during which the use of social media by the opposition movement made headlines around the world, such claims prompt wry smiles from seasoned observers.
(7) Enigmatic and elusive, they may have named themselves after the US video director because they enjoy his work, or it may be a wry comment on something or other.
(8) Franzen did seem to have a certain sense of humour about himself, and in person has a wry, awkward charm.
(9) Coal plants are the most polluting of all power stations and the World Resources Institute (WRI) identified 1,200 coal plants in planning across 59 countries, with about three-quarters in China and India.
(10) The cover art for the Cranberries' Bury the Hatchet (1999) was an evocation of paranoia – a giant eye bearing down on a crouching figure – that did neither band nor artist many favours; his image for Muse's Black Holes and Revelations (2006) amounted to a thin revival of his work for the Floyd that, if you were being generous, suggested a wry comment on that band's unconvincing attempts to revive the excesses of 1970s progressive rock.
(11) He was a nice man, unpretentious and with a wry manner.
(12) The secretary of state also made a wry comparison between the bipartisan co-operation underpinning the new Afghan government and the polarised state of American domestic politics.

(16) "They were very happy," Wazir recalls with a wry smile.
(17) We are seeing a shift in the expansion of tree cover loss to a second tier of smaller countries that traditionally get much less attention from environmental groups.” He added: “These countries are recovering from years of civil conflicts that have made them off limits to investors who are now looking for opportunities – it is a new frontier of investments.” The WRI analysis suggests that a rapidly growing palm oil industry is one of the biggest contributors to the change.
(18) Guy Shrubsole, at Friends of the Earth, said of the WRI report: "This is a scary number of coal-fired plants being planned.
(19) The WRI report also found that, after a slight dip during the economic troubles of 2008, the global coal trade has rebounded and rose by 13% in 2010.
(20) But he is far from being a show-off: 'In fact, he comes over as a modest individual with a wry sense of humour', says a colleague.
