(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.

(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.

(v. t.) To make of different kinds; to make different from one another; to diversity; to variegate.
(v. t.) To embellish; to change fancifully; to present under new aspects, as of form, key, measure, etc. See Variation, 4.
(v. i.) To alter, or be altered, in any manner; to suffer a partial change; to become different; to be modified; as, colors vary in different lights.
(v. i.) To differ, or be different; to be unlike or diverse; as, the laws of France vary from those of England.
(v. i.) To alter or change in succession; to alternate; as, one mathematical quantity varies inversely as another.
(v. i.) To deviate; to depart; to swerve; -- followed by from; as, to vary from the law, or from reason.
(v. i.) To disagree; to be at variance or in dissension; as, men vary in opinion.
(n.) Alteration; change.
(1) An unsaturated fatty acid auxotroph of Escherichia coli was grown with a series of cis-octadecenoate isomers in which the location of the double bond varied from positions 3 to 17.
(2) Ethanol and L-ethionine induce acute steatosis without necrosis, whereas azaserine, carbon tetrachloride, and D-galactosamine are known to produce steatosis with varying degrees of hepatic necrosis.
(3) The time of observation varied between 2 and 17 years.
(4) However, the relationships between sociometric status and social perception varied as a function of task.
(5) Their contour lengths varied from 0.28 to 51 micron, but unlike in the case of maize, a large difference was not observed in the distribution of molecular classes greater than 1.0 micron between N and S cytoplasms of sugar beet.
(6) In four main regions the conservation varied from 83-91% while in the remaining regions the homology dropped to between 56-62%.
(7) For related pairs, both the primes (first pictures) and targets (second pictures) varied in rated "typicality" (Rosch, 1975), being either typical or relatively atypical members of their primary superordinate category.
(8) Change of steps in achieved just by varying the reaction conditions without any product purification.
(9) SD is shown to have therapeutic and differential diagnostic significance in varying pathological conditions of cerebral dopaminergic systems.
(10) The relative strength of the progressions varies with excitation wavelength and this, together with the absence of a common origin, indicates the existence of two independent emitting states with 0-0' levels separated by either 300 or 1000 cm-1.
(11) Although the relative contributions of different fuels varies greatly in different organisms, in none is there a simple reliance on stored ATP.
(12) The pH of ST solutions varied with the mode of oxygenation as follows: 7.9-8.2 in Groups I and IV; 8.7-8.9 in Groups II and V; 7.1-7.4 in Groups III and VI.
(13) The standard varies from modest to lavish – choose carefully and you could be staying in an antique-filled room with your host's paintings on the walls, and breakfasting on the veranda of a tropical garden.
(14) According to the experience of clinical trials the recommended ciprofloxacin dose varies between 100 and 500 mg b.i.d.
