(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.

(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.) Having the capacity of varying or changing; capable of alternation in any manner; changeable; as, variable winds or seasons; a variable quantity.
(a.) Liable to vary; too susceptible of change; mutable; fickle; unsteady; inconstant; as, the affections of men are variable; passions are variable.
(n.) That which is variable; that which varies, or is subject to change.
(n.) A quantity which may increase or decrease; a quantity which admits of an infinite number of values in the same expression; a variable quantity; as, in the equation x2 - y2 = R2, x and y are variables.
(n.) A shifting wind, or one that varies in force.
(n.) Those parts of the sea where a steady wind is not expected, especially the parts between the trade-wind belts.
(1) Although the mean values for all hemodynamic variables between the two placebo periods were minimally changed, the differences in individual patients were striking.
(2) Single-case experimental designs are presented and discussed from several points of view: Historical antecedents, assessment of the dependent variable, internal and external validity and pre-experimental vs experimental single-case designs.
(3) We have examined overlapping octapeptides from the kappa IIIb light chain variable region and show that some framework peptides have the ability to bind aggregated IgG.
(4) The family comprises at least three variable (V) gene segments, three constant (C) gene segments, and three junction (J) gene segments.
(5) Altogether 47 variables were investigated, and of these 34 gave results which were statistically significant.
(6) Variables included an ego-delay measure obtained from temporal estimations, perceptions of temporal dominance and relatedness obtained from Cottle's Circles Test, Ss' ages, and a measure of long-term posthospital adjustment.
(7) However, it is easier for them to cope with anxiety because premedication pacifies the patients, whereas each of the dependent variables, such as apprehension, is influenced differently.
(8) The half-life was very variable between subjects [2-8 hours], but less variable within subjects and it was unaffected by the formulation.
(9) Since 1979, patients started on long-term lithium treatment at the Psychiatric Hospital in Risskov have been followed systematically with recording of clinical and laboratory variables before the start of treatment, after 6 and 12 months of treatment, and thereafter at yearly intervals.
(10) Aside from these characteristic findings of HCC, it was important to reveal the following features for the diagnosis of well differentiated type of small HCC: variable thickening or distortion of trabecular structure in association with nuclear crowding, acinar formation, selective cytoplasmic accumulation of Mallory bodies, nuclear abnormalities consisting of thickening of nucleolus, hepatic cords in close contact with bile ducts or blood vessels, and hepatocytes growing in a fibrous environment.
(11) Examined specific relationships, as they occur in nature, between particular dietary variables or groups of variables and specific MMPI subscales.
(12) Excretion of inactive kallikrein again correlated with urine flow rate but the regression relationship between the two variables was different for water-load-induced and frusemide-induced diuresis.
(13) Our prospective study has defined a number of important variables in patients with clinical evidence of mast cell proliferation that can predict both the presence of SMCD and the likelihood of fatal disease.
(14) The dilemmas faced by the genetic counsellor are discussed in this variable autosomal dominant condition.
(15) Regression analysis on the 21 clinical or laboratory parameters studied showed that the only variable independently associated with CSF-FN was the total protein concentration in the CSF; this, however, explained only 14% of the observed variation in the CSF-FN concentration and did not show any correlation with CNS involvement.
(16) A number of variables which could influence the test has been evaluated and standardized in a way suitable for the routinary use of the technique described.
(17) There is a considerably larger variability of the mercury levels in urine than in blood.
(18) Blood gas variables produced from a computed in vivo oxygen dissociation curve, PaeO2, P95 and C(a-x)O2, were introduced in the University Hospital of Wales in 1986.
(19) Variability (CV = 0.7%) in body volume of a 45-year-old reference man measured by SH method was very similar to variation (CV = 0.6%) in mass volume of the 60-1 prototype.
(20) Both demographically and clinically assessed behavioral variables were related to a number of outcome measures, including days in the community, clinical ratings, and family assessment.
