(1) As observed before, the inhibitors share a common main-chain conformation at the binding loop from P3-P'3 (Schechter & Berger notation), which is maintained throughout all the serine proteinase inhibitor families for which X-ray data is available, despite lack of similarity in the rest of the protein.

(3) Drug order notations entered by physicians on outpatient medical records were examined to determine if the availability of the profile influenced the completeness of drug-related data being recorded by physicians.
(4) In 300 Sienese skulls of known age and sex (146 male and 154 female) 6 modes of expression of bipartition of the hypoglossal canal were studied on the basis of a new scheme of notation that takes into account gradually increasing intensity.
(5) First, the historical evolution of number notations is presented, together with the mental processes for calculating and transcoding from one notation to another.
(6) The musical notation in braille remained intact: he could read by touch and play unfamiliar scores, he could also read and sing the musical notes, he could copy and write a score.
