(4) In the strictly anaerobic acetoin-utilizing bacteria P. carbinolicus, Pelobacter venetianus, Pelobacter acetylenicus, Pelobacter propionicus, Acetobacterium carbinolicum, and Clostridium magnum, the enzymes Ao:DCPIP OR, DHLTA, and DHLDH were induced during growth on acetoin, whereas they were absent or scarcely present in cells grown on a nonacetoinogenic substrate.
(5) Hydrocephalus and valvular impaction of the cerebellum in the foramen magnum were demonstrated.
(6) It traces his progress of degradation unhampered by constituted authority and concludes with his magnum opus--the greatest massacre of South Sea Islanders in the annals of the South Sea slave trade.
(7) Body weight was not correlated with foramen magnum area in 25 specimens of savannah sparrow, Ammodramus sandwichensis.
(8) A patient with symptomatic oscillopsia without downbeat nystagmus, who was diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging to have displaced cerebellar tonsils below the foramen magnum, is presented here.
(9) It is suggested that the surgical removal of the fused posterior border of the lateral parts of the occipital bone (partial nuchalectomy) for the purpose of enlarging the narrow foramen magnum may be indicated in those chondrodysplastic children who develop these types of neurologic complications.
(10) In the normal group, the mean position of the tonsils was 1 mm above the foramen magnum with a range from 8 mm above the foramen magnum to 5 mm below.
(11) Both cases also showed a narrow foramen magnum, hypoplastic cerebellum, atrial septal defect, hypoplastic adrenals, and ureteric malformations.
(12) It was concluded, therefore, that the changes seen in total protein synthesis in the whole oviduct during the egg formation cycle were mainly attributable to those in magnum protein synthesis, of which a significant portion was accounted for by the synthesis of ovalbumin.

(14) In contrast, in the regions other than the magnum and the isthmus, these three types of cIg were fewer in number.
(15) Therefore, the authors believe that a single reference standard that indicates the normal distance of the cerebellar tonsils from the foramen magnum is inappropriate unless age is considered.
(16) Although the relative contents of tRNA(GCCGly) and tRNA(IGGPro) in tendons, as compared to magnum indicate a specialization of the tRNA population for collagen synthesis, the distribution of the preponderant codons in collagen mRNA is correlated but at a lesser extent to that of their cognate tRNAs.
