(a.) Not given to variation or change; unalterable; unchangeable; always uniform.
(n.) An invariable quantity; a constant.
(1) In X-irradiated litters, almost invariably, the incidence of anophthalmia was higher in exencephalic than in nonexencephalic embryos and the ratio of these incidences (relative risk) decreased toward 1 with increasing dose.
(2) On the other hand, the injection of minute quantities of endotoxin into PbAc(2)-sensitized rats invariably resulted in disseminated intravascular coagulation, apparently via a complete activation of the intrinsic pathway.
(3) The cytoplasmic and membrane spanning domains of galactosyltransferase were found to be sufficient to retain all of the hybrid invariant chain in trans Golgi cisternae as judged by indirect immunofluorescence, treatment with brefeldin A and immuno-electron microscopy.
(4) The purification and concentration of these viruses in their monomeric forms is hazardous when conventional "tube" rotors are used since they invariably result in dissociation and aggregation of the virus particles.
(5) In contrast, cases of parkinsonism beginning before age 21 years were invariably familial.
(6) Examination of the two types of tissue fragments revealed that IS-treated ICMs almost invariably retained viable endoderm cells whereas MS-isolated ectoderms did so only exceptionally.
(7) It is suggested that a general manner of folding may be a common feature of the heterogeneous population of kappa-chains: one bridge which folds an invariable stretch of the chain, another bridge which folds a stretch that varies from protein to protein, and a bridge at the C-terminus which is the interchain link.
(8) An obsessional artist who was an enemy of all institutions, cinematic as well as social, and whose principal theme was intolerance, he invariably gets delivered to us today by institutions - most recently the National Film Theatre, which starts a Dreyer retrospective this month - that can't always be counted on to represent him in all his complexity.
(9) Patients with anti-NC1 antibodies were characterised by linear immune deposits along the glomerular basement membrane and the clinical outcome was invariably grim.
(10) The PCR amplified a 375-bp DNA fragment which was cloned and sequenced; the deduced amino acid sequence had significant identity with known TS sequences, including strict conservation of all phylogenetically invariant TS amino acid residues.
(11) Using confirmatory factor analysis on an independent sample (N = 377), these dimensions were tested for factorial invariance across spouse and nonspouse caregivers and between caregivers of persons with cancer and those caring for persons with Alzheimer's disease.
(12) The species invariance of this lysine residue, number 175, and the substantial conservation of adjacent sequence support the probability for a functional role in catalysis of the lysyl epsilon-amino group.
(13) Under these assumptions, any time-invariant variable may behave like a metabolite concentration, i.e.
(14) However, in conical cells the new oral apparatus and fission line form well posterior to the cell equator, so the opisthes are invariably smaller than proters.
(15) Unlike posterior tympanoplasty, this technique makes it possible to meticulously remove the osteitic bone invariably found in the facial recess when there is infection of the retraction pocket.
(16) Limited data indicates that, while enhanced thermal stability invariably results, the optimum temperature for catalysis may not change.
(17) The relative invariance of the allometric baselines of wing morphology in nature is most easily explained as the result of continuous natural selection around a local optimum of functional design.
(18) When the paper had some explaining to do, Kuttner was invariably asked to carry out that task.
(19) We found that NS1 cells express correctly sized mRNA for the MHC class II genes A alpha, E alpha and the invariant chain.
(20) When we reached our summit, or whatever spot was deemed by my father to be of adequately punishing distance from the car to deserve lunch, Dad would invariably find he had forgotten his Swiss army knife (looking back, I begin to doubt he ever had one) and instead would cut cheese into slices with the edge of his credit card.
(a.) Being in the middle; running through the middle; as, a median groove.
(a.) Situated in the middle; lying in a plane dividing a bilateral animal into right and left halves; -- said of unpaired organs and parts; as, median coverts.
(n.) A median line or point.
(1) The mean and median values in the nondiabetic group are higher than in previously published reports.
(2) However, time in greater than 21% oxygen was significantly longer in infants less than 1000 g (median 30 days, 8.5 days in patients greater than 1000 g, p less than 0.01).
(3) Standard nerve conduction techniques using constant measured distances were applied to evaluate the median, ulnar and radial nerves.
(4) Only candidacidal activity was enhanced in FCA-elicited peritoneal macrophages (median C. albicans killed 28% versus 16% for resident peritoneal macrophages, p less than 0.01).
(5) Local application of 8-OH-DPAT (0-5 micrograms) into the median raphe nucleus, facilitated male rat sexual behavior, as evidenced by a decrease in number of intromissions preceding ejaculation and in time to ejaculation.
(6) Median effect analysis was applied for the evaluation of in vitro effect by the growth inhibition, and the in vivo effect by comparison of the increase of life span (ILS) in a combined group with the sum of ILS's in 2 single agent groups.
(7) Median time for ventilatory support was 90 minutes after transfer to the area.
(8) As of November, 1988 after a median observation period of 34 months, 174 of the 256 patients (68%) were alive, 11 (4%) dead and 71 (28%) lost to follow-up.
(9) Unilateral VNAB lesions induced similar alterations but these were restricted to the ipsilateral PVN and median eminence.
(10) SPRs were elicited either by stimulating the reticular formation or the distal end of the median nerve.
(11) The criteria for sero-positivity was determined from the median antibody concentration in a group of 368 non-endoscoped control patients.
(12) With a median follow-up of 6 years, 32 (20%) of 156 patients who achieved complete remission have relapsed.
(13) The median survival after radiotherapy is 17.4 months.
(14) But the median survival time was 30.7 months in Arm A and 24.5 months in Arm B, and significantly longer in Arm A until 10 months.
(15) The median functional protein S of these patients was 71% (40-101%).
(16) Using the MTT assay and analyzing the data using the median-effect principle, we showed that synergistic cytotoxic interactions exist between CDDP and VM in their liposomal form.
(17) At concentrations below the respective median for each variable, odds ratios of between 1.42 and 1.67 were calculated whereas at concentrations above the respective medians the odds ratios ranged from 4.50 to 6.33 (P less than 0.001).
(18) The median blood levels were lower in hyperacidic subjects and higher in hypoacidic patients; the urinary excretion of the digitalis compound showed no essential differences.
(19) Irradiation of the skin overlying the median nerve at the wrist in humans with a low power (1 mW; 632.5 nm) helium-neon laser produced a somatosensory evoked potential obtained at Erb's point.
(20) Most of the bilateral lung lesions were removed through a median sternotomy so as to avoid staged bilateral thoracotomy.
