(7) The enzyme catalyzing d-amino acid oxidation was present in extracts of cells grown on valine, but not on glucose, had a pH optimum of approximately 9.0, consumed 1 atom of oxygen per mole of keto acid produced, and was not stimulated by any of the usual electron transport cofactors.
(8) A peroxidase conjugated-antibody (1.5 mole of enzyme per mole of antibody) was obtained and used for microwell enzyme immunoassay and Immun-Blot assay.
(9) The intrinsic inhibitory potency of this polymer increased with increasing degree of substitution with A35, approaching that of free A35 with substitution of approximately 3 mol of A35 per mole of dextran.
(10) Compared to women of group O or B, women of group A and AB had an elevated relative risk (RR) of benign mole (RR = 1.4 and 2.3, respectively).
(11) Five moles of ATP was consumed for each mole of phosphodiester bonds cleaved.
(12) The maximum effect was obtained with 10(-7) molar gibberellic acid, whereas concentrations greater than 5 x 10(-7) mole per liter were inhibitory.
(13) Yeast tRNAPhe containing a phosphorothioate modified -CS-CS-A terminus binds two moles of chloroterpyridineplatinum(II).

(15) The extent of sialylation of oligosaccharides in the three hCG samples used in this study were 88% in normal hCG, 82% in invasive mole hCG and 63% in choriocarcinoma hCG.
(16) A review of the literature revealed that this patient appears to be the first case of nephrotic syndrome associated with a total mole, although there have been two cases of nephrotic syndrome due to preeclamptic nephropathy associated with a partial or transitional mole.
(17) The adaptive value of sound signal characteristics for transmission in the underground tunnel ecotope was tested using tunnels of the solitary territorial subterranean mole rats.
(18) Our estimated rate of 7.5 hydatidiform moles per 10,000 pregnancies was similar to most reported rates for the United States.
(19) The current study was undertaken in an effort to identify the clinical characteristics and natural history of partial moles.
(20) The presence of millimolar concentrations of ATP, phenylalanine and pyrophosphate triggers negative cooperativity and under these conditions only one mole of Phe-tRNAphe is bound per mole of enzyme with a Kd value of 0.15 muM.
(1) Dysplastic naevus syndrome (DNS) is frequently observed in association with familial melanoma and xeroderma pigmentosum (XP), but the role of UV-light in the development of DNS has not been elucidated.
(2) This feature can be found in several dermatoses and particularly in lichen striatus and acantholytic linear naevus.
(3) Mean naevus numbers were greater in young than in older adults, and in females than in males.
(4) The mean total body naevus count was 115 in the cases and 67 in the controls.
(5) Analysing the cases according to Clark's levels and Breslow's index, a decrease in the naevus-melanoma association was seen with tumour progression, suggesting that advanced tumours may overgrow pre-existing nevus cells, appearing as de novo melanomas.
(6) A bone scan and red blood cell scan in the rare epidermal naevus syndrome, associated with multiple haemangiomas of the bone and hypophosphataemic osteomalacia in a 20-year-old man are reported.
(7) The activities of 27 enzymes of carbohydrate metabolism and the proportions of lactate dehydrogenase isoenzymes were determined in epidermis, in superficial epitheliomas and in several solid tumours biopsied from a patient with basal-cell naevus syndrome.
(8) One of the causes of twenty nail dystrophy of childhood may be a localized tissue malformation, analogous to inflammatory linear verrucous epidermal naevus.
(9) This is particularly true for skin lesions related to the vascular system (e.g., livedo racemosa, spider naevus).
(10) Two hundred moles were examined histologically and the degree and type of epidermal change was recorded and correlated with the arrangement, density and type of naevus cells present and with the clinical presentation.
(11) The clinical, histological and histogenetic aspects of naevus follicularis keratosus (NFK) ("naevus comedonicus") are reported.
(12) Doubt is cast also upon the validity of the concepts of a dysplastic naevus and a dysplastic naevus syndrome.
(13) Secondly, a study in Canadian school children revealed significantly higher naevus counts in subjects with numerous or severe episodes of sunburn in the previous 5 years.
(14) There is some doubt as to whether naevus pilus is identical with naevus-on-naevus or lentiginous naevus en mottes.
(15) An immunohistological evaluation of the diagnosis of naevus-associated melanoma was also performed on the basis of specimens from 89 melanocytic lesions.
(16) The case of a 5-month-old black female child with a linear sebaceous naevus syndrome and multiple congenital anomalies is presented.
(17) We report on the clinical and pathological features of three patients (two girls and one boy aged 6, 12 and 11 years respectively) from the St Laurentius hospital (Roermond, Netherlands) with melanoma of the skin, in whom the lesions histologically resembled the more frequently occurring spindle and epithelioid cell naevus (SE naevus).
(18) The authors report a case of extensive verrucous epidermal naevus of the face in a 15 year old Senegalese boy.
(19) The patient had extensive cutaneous naevus involving the left side of the body and consisting of naevus flammeus, hemangioma cavernosum, and naevus verrucosus.
(20) The difference in naevus count between the exposed and the protected area was larger in patients than in controls, p less than 0.001.
