(a.) Applied to certain mute consonants, as p, k, and t (or Gr. /, /, /).
(n.) The smooth breathing (spiritus lenis).
(n.) Any one of the lene consonants, as p, k, or t (or Gr. /, /, /).
(1) With Lene Mykjaland having rather less room for manoeuvre than before, the Lionesses at least mustered the odd attacking move.
(2) "It's true that there seems to be more and more of these extreme cases of blooming jellyfish," said Lene Moller, a researcher at the Swedish Institute for the Marine Environment.
(3) The Danish foreign minister, Lene Espersen, said she cannot take direct action against Lundbeck because the drug is produced by a plant in Kansas.
(n.) A piece of glass, or other transparent substance, ground with two opposite regular surfaces, either both curved, or one curved and the other plane, and commonly used, either singly or combined, in optical instruments, for changing the direction of rays of light, and thus magnifying objects, or otherwise modifying vision. In practice, the curved surfaces are usually spherical, though rarely cylindrical, or of some other figure.
(1) These results demonstrate that increased availability of galactose, a high-affinity substrate for the enzyme, leads to increased aldose reductase messenger RNA, which suggests a role for aldose reductase in sugar metabolism in the lens.
(2) Based on several previous studies, which demonstrated that sorbitol accumulation in human red blood cells (RBCs) was a function of ambient glucose concentrations, either in vitro or in vivo, our investigations were conducted to determine if RBC sorbitol accumulation would correlate with sorbitol accumulation in lens and nerve tissue of diabetic rats; the effect of sorbinil in reducing sorbitol levels in lens and nerve tissue of diabetic rats would be reflected by changes in RBC sorbitol; and sorbinil would reduce RBC sorbitol in diabetic man.
(3) The significance of the differences in these two patterns of actin is discussed in terms of differences in the accommodative ability and static lens shape in these two animals.
(4) The epithelium of Brunner's gland stained intensely with Ricinus communis agglutinin-I (RCA-I), succinylated-WGA (S-WGA) and wheat-germ agglutinin (WGA), moderately with Bandeirea simplicifolia agglutinin-I (BS-I), Concanavalia ensiformis agglutinin (Con A) peanut agglutinin (PNA) and Ulex europaeus agglutinin-I (UEA-I) and occasionally with Dolichos biflorus agglutinin (DBA), Lens culinaris agglutinin (LCA) and soybean agglutinin (SBA).
(5) That is, he believes, to look at massively difficult, interlocking problems through too narrow a lens.
(6) The advantages of the incision through the pars plana ciliaris are (1) easier approach to the vitreous cavity, (2) preservation of the crystalline lens and an intact iris, and (3) circumvention of the corneal and chamber angle complications sometimes associated with the transcorneal approach.
(7) The third patient was using an extended-wear soft contact lens for correction of residual myopia.
(8) The cellularity depends on the type of the lens and the material of the lens and on the clinical picture of the disease.
(9) Although lens haemagglutinins were detected in 6 out of 7 rabbits, in only 3 of the 6 animals did the titre reach a maximum of 1:640.
(10) Dioptric aniseikonia was calculated between 1 month and 24 months after surgery (with Gruber's and Huber's computer program) on the basis of most recently obtained values (bulb axis length, depth of the anterior chamber, lens thickness, necessary refraction), and compared with subjective measurements taken with the phase difference haploscope.
(11) We propose that a channel with these properties could contribute to maintenance of lens transparency and fluid balance.
(12) Although the lens did not alter stereopsis, it did produce severe color discrimination losses for normal and dichromatic subjects.
(13) The general efficacy of this intraocular lens compared with other anterior chamber lenses was not addressed in this study.
(14) However, the monkey lens low molecular weight proteins differ from the human low molecular weight proteins in charge as well as molecular weight determined by SDS-PAGE.
(15) Fifty-five myopic naval personnel with no previous contact lens experience were put through a three-week study using these contact lenses.
(16) A Stryker turning frame was used during surgical removal of a posterior displaced lens.
(17) The biocompatibility and fixation of a new silicone intraocular lens was evaluated in the cat eye.
(18) Both organisms have previously been found to be sequestered in the posterior lens capsule by histological and microbiological examination of excised capsular specimens.
(19) Previous experiments had demonstrated that the receptors for the lectins soybean agglutinin (SBA), wheat germ agglutinin, concanavalin A and Lens culinaris agglutinin all were relatively uniformly distributed on both myoblasts and myotubes, and that SBA receptors were capable of rapid redistribution on myotubes but not myoblasts at 4 degrees C (Sawyer & Akeson, 1983).
(20) The relative permittivity and conductivity of rabbit eye lens were measured in the frequency domain between 2 and 18 GHz at temperatures of 37 and 20 degrees C. An analysis of the data suggested that a significant proportion of the bulk water in nuclear and cortical lens tissue may behave differently to pure water.
