(a.) Causing little or no pain or annoyance; as, an indolent tumor.
(1) The rate of indole production is increased about 4-fold when the aminoacrylate produced is converted to S-(hydroxyethyl)-L-cysteine by a coupled beta-replacement reaction with beta-mercaptoethanol.
(2) This derivative also allowed sensitive detection and measurement of indole-3-pyruvate in the picogram range using a gas chromatograph with an electron capture detector.
(3) In addition, it has excellent antibacterial activity against indole-positive Proteus strains against which conventional Cephalosporins are ineffective.
(4) These findings imply that smooth muscle replication in advanced plaques is indolent and raise the possibility of a role for proliferating leukocytes.

(11) Eight of the nine (88.9%) Proteus vulgaris isolates gave a positive spot indole test; one (11.1%) gave a negative result.
(12) 15 human tumour cell lines (lung, breast and colon) have been evaluated for their sensitivity to the quinone based anti-cancer drugs Mitomycin C, Porfiromycin, and EO9 (3-hydroxymethyl-5-aziridinyl-1-methyl-2-(IH-indole-4,7-dione)prop-beta- en-alpha-ol).
(13) The fluorogenic beta-D-Glucuronidase test, together with an Indol-capillary test for rapid identification of E. coli, were proved with 60 toxinogenic, 335 nontoxinogenic wild-type strains, and 87 other gram-negative isolates from food.
(14) Enzymatic production of L-tryptophan from DL-serine and indole by a coupled reaction of tryptophan synthase and amino acid racemase was studied.
(15) It inhibited some Enterobacter and indole-positive Proteus, but it was less active against these later species than was cefamandole, cefuroxime, or cefoxitin.
(16) An hydroxyl group in the 5 position of the indole nucleus, sterically unencumbered by hydroxyls in neighboing positions, is essential.
(17) We now report a second case with similar features of chronic recurrent indolent inflammatory skin lesions, nondiagnostic skin biopsies, and failure to respond to antibiotics.
(18) In this study, the roots of Tabernaemontana heyneana Wall were examined and the isolation and identification of additional indole alkaloids and some pharmacological properties of coronaridine are described.
(19) In an effort to understand the mechanism by which dietary indoles inhibit chemically initiated tumorigenesis in experimental animals, we have investigated the potency of 3-substituted and 1,3-disubstituted indoles on the induction of intestinal and hepatic cytochrome P-448-dependent monooxygenases in the rat.
(20) Low nanogram levels of tyrosine, norepinephrine, 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid, tryptophan, serotonin and 6-hydroxymelatonin, and picogram levels of 5-hydroxytryptophan, 5-hydroxytryptophol, 5-methoxyindole-3-acetic acid, indole 3-acetic acid, 5-methoxytryptophol and melatonin were indicated in most of the samples.
(a.) Causing sleep; tending to cause sleep; soporiferous; as, the soporific virtues of opium.
(n.) A medicine, drug, plant, or other agent that has the quality of inducing sleep; a narcotic.
(1) The maximum soporific effect did not occur until 90-120 s after injection.
(2) His answer threatened a soporific summer-long contest that would expose a great gap between the self-styled people's party and the people themselves.
(3) 'P ublic sector commissioning": I can't think of a phrase that conveys something so important and yet sounds so soporific.
(4) Soporific effect of hexenal was distinctly increased in the burns, which correlated to the severity of thermic impairment.
(5) Pebble-dashed walls, red roof tiles, Velux windows, cherry trees... these things make me think not of daring strokes of oil on canvas, but of the safe, the soporific - a round of golf, perhaps, or a gentle Sunday-night sitcom.
(6) Less drugs were used in general, and the use of tranquillizers and soporifics was cut down to a third.
(7) Higher doses of naloxone (1Opmol into the LC) were however, required to antagonize the behavioural and ECoG soporific effects induced by the Kappa-receptor agonist U 50,488H.
(8) The drug is well tolerated by the patients and does not produce any inhibitory or soporific action.
(9) And, intriguingly, a 2009 study at Mashhad University in Iran revealed an extract of saffron did have soporific qualities, on mice at least.
(10) Instead, the atmosphere is soporific, with an underlying threat of menace.
(11) Toxicological urine analysis for drugs--directed mainly at soporifics, sedatives, tranquilizers, and pain-relievers--on 84 patients involved in industrial accidents yielded the following results.
(12) What had been a sombre occasion for City fans as they looked at an Etihad Stadium dugout without Mancini for a first time since December 2009 became further muted when a soporific start to the game had ended with Anthony Pilkington opening the scoring for Norwich.
(13) 1 Experiments were performed on a variety of tissues from different species to establish whether or not the properties of p-chlorophenylalanine methyl ester (PCPA) included a 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)-like action which might explain the soporific action of PCPA in chicks.
(14) Because of their pharmacologic action, alcohol and high doses of soporifics used as remedies may produce REM-deficit sleep and actually prolong insomnia.
(15) Imagine my surprise in the morning to find it was gone 7am – the soporific effect of the loud snoring made my baby sleep through the night for the first time!
(16) Long sleep (LS) and short sleep (SS) mice have a differential sensitivity to the behavioral actions of an adenosine agonist, R-phenylisopropyl-adenosine (PIA) that parallels their differential sensitivity to the soporific effects of ethanol.
(17) If so, the soporific way Per Mertesacker dawdled in possession and Kieran Gibbs clumsily punted the ball into the air suggested there had been scant impact.
(18) After 53 days of alcohol ingestion there was no evidence of tolerance to the soporific effects of parenterally administered ethanol and removal of the ethanol solutions failed to produce any signs of alcohol withdrawal.
(19) Further, much evidence also supports the conclusion that most of these hypnotic-depressants and anesthetics could exert their soporific influence by a potentiation of GABA activity.
(20) Recent evidence, as well as reevaluated previous evidence, indicates that Long-Sleep mice are more sensitive to the soporific effects of three major classes of CNS depressants (alcohols, barbiturates, and benzodiazepines), as well as many other anesthesia-inducing compounds (adenosine, chloral hydrate, trichloroethanol, paraldehyde, nitrous oxide, enflurane, and isoflurane).
