(n.) Cloth with the nap, generally of native black wool.
(n.) A salmon after spawning.
(n.) Same as Celt, one of Celtic race.
(1) The Kelts may have a similar origin but they might include the Berbers of ancient Iberia as a third component.
(2) Japanese-American author Roland Kelts , who writes about Japan's youth, says it's inevitable that the future of Japanese relationships will be largely technology driven .
(3) Kelts says the need to escape into private, virtual worlds in Japan stems from the fact that it's an overcrowded nation with limited physical space.
(4) However, this study shows that fresh-water-adapted kelts exposed to seawater demonstrate rapid adaptation (within 48 h) in osmoregulatory parameters to values characteristics of seawater-adapted salmonids.
(5) As is characteristic for marine teleosts, kelts drink seawater and process the ingested water in the gut to replace body water lost by osmosis to the hyperosmotic medium.
(6) These fish, known as kelts, reportedly show a limited ability to hypoosmoregulate.
(7) Since the end of the second world war and the lifting of censorship restrictions, manga has been a platform for confronting and grappling with social and political taboos,” said Roland Kelts, the author of Japanamerica: How Japanese Pop Culture Has Invaded the US .
(8) The physiological mechanisms involved in adaptation to a hyperosmotic external medium are discussed, and the osmoregulatory capacity of kelts is compared with that of salmon at other stages of the life cycle.
(9) A protozoan infection (Trichodina truttae) was identified in captive Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) kelts that died in spring of 1988 and 1989.
(10) This paper describes the measurement of whole body Ca, Cl, K, N, Na, O and P in Atlantic salmon parr, adults and kelts by neutron activation analysis (NAA).
(11) Anthropogenic 137Cs was found in sea-water (SW) salmon but not found in the freshwater (FW) stages (parr and kelts).
(v. i.) To have a short sleep; to be drowsy; to doze.
(v. i.) To be in a careless, secure state.
(n.) A short sleep; a doze; a siesta.
(n.) Woolly or villous surface of felt, cloth, plants, etc.; an external covering of down, of short fine hairs or fibers forming part of the substance of anything, and lying smoothly in one direction; the pile; -- as, the nap of cotton flannel or of broadcloth.
(n.) The loops which are cut to make the pile, in velvet.
(v. t.) To raise, or put, a nap on.
(1) Effects of habitual variations in napping on psychomotor performance, short-term memory and subjective states were investigated.
(2) Of these 30-45% were of high affinity with a mean Kd value of 0.3 and 0.7 nM for GRO alpha and NAP-2, respectively, and 55-70% of low affinity (Kd = 30 nM).
(3) Stage REM frequently appeared within 10 min of stage 1 onset and the normal sequence of stages REM and 4 were altered, demonstrating that the organization of sleep within a nap is quite different from that in monophasic nocturnal sleep.
(4) During subsequent time off, napping and night sleep increased total sleep length above baseline levels.
(5) It is suggested that the modifier site is accessible to NAP-taurine only from the outside whereas the transport site may be accessible from either side.
(6) One service NAPS provides is a clip sheet of publication-ready newspaper columns complete with artwork which an editor can "clip" and use directly in a newspaper.
(7) Screening studies, from the most simple (night-time Holter monitor or ear oximetry) to either a carefully performed nap study or a home recording may aid in deciding which patients require a formal polysomnogram.
(8) Thus a large portion of Rp binding to NAP may represent nonspecific binding rather than binding to a finite number of Rp acceptor sites.
(9) By contrast, NAP did not affect these chondroformative processes.
(10) US supreme court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg admitted that her traditional State of the Union nap may have been induced by a glass or two of wine.
(11) Some new data are presented about the clinical pathology of glossitis on the base of clinical, paraclinical, microbiological and virological studies and reliable possibilities of affecting by nistatin-prednisolone emulsion (NAP).
(12) Napping did not affect subsequent nocturnal sleep in either group.
(13) These observations suggest that our method can represent high NAP activity more exactly than NAP score and may be a potential tool in differentiating polycythemia vera from essential thrombocythemia.
(14) The late nap was more efficient in reducing sleepiness during the last 5 h of the experiments (23.00-04.00).
(15) The probable structures of the inclusion compounds of NAP with natural cyclodextrins were constructed using a molecular graphics program.
(16) This paper describes the 200-fold enrichment of the native RBF-2 class of PR acceptor sites beginning with the DNase I digestion of NAP to obtain DNase-resistant fragment (NAPf) containing approximately 150 bp of DNA.
(17) In contrast to G-CSF, GM-CSF did not affect the NAP activity in PMN in spite of the enhanced incorporation of amino acids into PMN by GM-CSF.
(18) Although anti-NH2SPD and anti-NAPS antibodies were identified that appeared to bind 3H-SPD, 3H-DOMP or 125I-IBZM with high affinity, none of the populations of polyclonal antibodies or monoclonal antibodies bound all three ligands with high affinity.
(19) In the dark, this compound, 8-methoxy-2-(N-n-propyl,N-3-(2-nitro-4-azidophenyl)aminopropyl) aminotetralin or 8-methoxy-3'-NAP-amino-PAT, displaced [3H]8-OH-DPAT and [3H]5-HT bound to 5-HT1A and 5-HT1 sites in hippocampal membranes with IC50 values of 6.6 and 18.1 nM respectively.
(20) Using highly purified CTAP-III as the substrate we studied the generation of NAP-2 by several neutral tissue proteinases.
