(7) The combined action of 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) and light with lambda greater than 310 nm on bacteriophages and bacteria results in the formation of the following two types of photo-products in the DNA: monoadducts, in which 8-MOP is covalently bound to a pyrimidine base, and diadducts or cross links, in which the 8-MOP is covalently bound to two pyrimidines from complementary strands.
(8) Consistent with this, 8-MOP has been shown to act as an inhibitor of a component of repair of 254-nm ultraviolet light damage in WP2 but not in AB1157.

(13) The sequence of markers in the corresponding segment (mel to purA; 91.5 to 93.5 min) of the E. coli linkage map was shown to be mel--aspA--mop(groE)--ampA--frdA--pur A.
(14) 8-Methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) (currently in vogue for the treatment of psoriasis) is a well-known photosensitizing agent.
(15) The psoralen analogs 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) and 4,5',8-trimethylpsoralen (TMP), in combination with ultraviolet light (UVA, 320-400 nm), are potent modulators of epidermal cell growth and differentiation and are commonly used in photochemotherapy of psoriasis and vitiligo.
(16) This methodology was applied to 7 substances: 5 known photosensitizers (8-MOP, chlorpromazine, 5-fluorouracil, Vitamin A acid and benzoyl peroxide) and 2 products without any photoactive properties (aspirin and erythromycin).
(17) The pharmacokinetics of 8-MOP were studied in six dogs following intravenous administration of 2 mg kg-1.
(18) A new psoralen plus UVA therapy has been developed in which the 8-MOP-containing blood of cutaneous T cell lymphoma (CTCL) patients is irradiated with UVA light extracorporeally (i.e., extracorporeal photopheresis).
(19) By using APAAP method with MoP in cytologic studies it was possible to diagnose T-lymphoblastic lymphoma in six children before the results of histopathologic examination of the lymph nodes.
(20) Mean residence time of theophylline increased from 10.7, 17.2, and 12.2 hr in the control period, to 20.3, 19.0, and 18.4 hr after 8-MOP.

(5) She frequently talks about herself as an object of wry or amused discovery.
(6) It was described as the "Twitter revolution" , but almost a year on from Iran's disputed presidential elections, during which the use of social media by the opposition movement made headlines around the world, such claims prompt wry smiles from seasoned observers.
(7) Enigmatic and elusive, they may have named themselves after the US video director because they enjoy his work, or it may be a wry comment on something or other.
(8) Franzen did seem to have a certain sense of humour about himself, and in person has a wry, awkward charm.
(9) Coal plants are the most polluting of all power stations and the World Resources Institute (WRI) identified 1,200 coal plants in planning across 59 countries, with about three-quarters in China and India.
(10) The cover art for the Cranberries' Bury the Hatchet (1999) was an evocation of paranoia – a giant eye bearing down on a crouching figure – that did neither band nor artist many favours; his image for Muse's Black Holes and Revelations (2006) amounted to a thin revival of his work for the Floyd that, if you were being generous, suggested a wry comment on that band's unconvincing attempts to revive the excesses of 1970s progressive rock.

(17) We are seeing a shift in the expansion of tree cover loss to a second tier of smaller countries that traditionally get much less attention from environmental groups.” He added: “These countries are recovering from years of civil conflicts that have made them off limits to investors who are now looking for opportunities – it is a new frontier of investments.” The WRI analysis suggests that a rapidly growing palm oil industry is one of the biggest contributors to the change.
(18) Guy Shrubsole, at Friends of the Earth, said of the WRI report: "This is a scary number of coal-fired plants being planned.

(20) But he is far from being a show-off: 'In fact, he comes over as a modest individual with a wry sense of humour', says a colleague.
