(17) The Bayesian solution to the Behrens-Fisher problem of normal distributions with differing variances was an acceptable compromise after the data had been transformed by the inverse hyperbolic sine method applicable to negative binomials.
(18) Several reporter genes with estrogen response elements upstream of the herpes thymidine kinase promoter showed hyperbolic saturation kinetics with increasing ER.
(19) In the presence of histidine a change from hyperbolic to sigmoidal kinetics is observed.
(20) Binding to enterocytes isolated from both normal and chronically hypoxic mice showed a hyperbolic dependence on medium Fe(III) concentration, consistent with a single class of binding sites.
(n.) The act or quality of being instant or pressing; urgency; solicitation; application; suggestion; motion.
(n.) That which is instant or urgent; motive.
(n.) Occasion; order of occurrence.
(n.) That which offers itself or is offered as an illustrative case; something cited in proof or exemplification; a case occurring; an example.
(n.) A token; a sign; a symptom or indication.
(v. t.) To mention as a case or example; to refer to; to cite; as, to instance a fact.
(v. i.) To give an example.
(1) Would people feel differently about it if, for instance, it happened on Boxing Day or Christmas Eve?
(2) In both instances the permeation rates of proteins can be better correlated to hydrodynamic radii than to molecular weights.
(3) In three instances SAA levels increased during hospitalization while CRP levels did not.
(4) A 6.4 kilobase C4B-5'-specific Taq I fragment usually provided a reliable guide to the presence of a C4A deletion but unusually in one instance this fragment was found to be a marker of a functioning C4A gene.
(5) "Runners, for instance, need a high level of running economy, which comes from skill acquisition and putting in the miles," says Scrivener, "But they could effectively ease off the long runs and reduce the overall mileage by introducing Tabata training.
(6) Both hypodontia and hyperdontia are found in a number of well-defined genetic syndromes and in most instances are common characteristics of the disease.
(7) The opportunities for infection are often strong in areas of high population within a city – schools, for instance.
(8) Of these, 12 had radiation-induced neurologic complications which, in 5 instances, consisted of persisting, wholly or partially disabling paresis in the lower limbs.
(9) The decision of the editors to solicit a review for the Medical Progress series of this journal devoted to current concepts of the renal handling of salt and water is sound in that this important topic in kidney physiology has recently been the object of a number of new, exciting and, in some instances, quite unexpected insights into the mechanisms governing sodium excretion.
(10) We firmly believe that a systematic approach to the 12-lead ECG can provide information that can diagnose the difference between ventricular and supraventricular tachycardia, and in many instances diagnose the mechanism and site of origin of the supraventricular tachycardia.
(11) Other less common indications are some instances of aspiration pneumonia, septicemias due to B. fragilis, and actinomycoses.
(12) Tension in flexor tendons during wrist flexion may play a role in otherwise unexplained instances of the carpal tunnel syndrome.
(13) But most instances are more mundane: the majority of fraud cases in recent years have emerged from scientists either falsifying images – deliberately mislabelling scans and micrographs – or fabricating or altering their recorded data.
(14) The right side of the ventricular septum was affected in five instances.
(15) Women on the beat: how to get more female police officers around the world Read more Mortars were, for instance, used on 5 June when Afghan national army soldiers accidentally hit a wedding party on the outskirts of Ghazni, killing eight children.
