() Alt. of Mouldy
(1) Most intriguing of all is the potential for the mould to "expect" changes in its environment.
(2) The median exposure of total dust was well below the Swedish threshold value, and the exposure of mould and bacteria was also low.
(3) We therefore used two different tRNA genes from the cellular slime mould Dictyostelium discoideum which are efficiently transcribed and processed in vivo in yeast.
(4) A mould which was isolated from a solution of paracetamol was identified as a Penicillium species and was found to possess the ability to utilise a series of substituted acetanilides, including paracetamol (4-hydroxyacetanilide), phenacetin (4-ethoxyacetanilide) and metacetamol (3-hydroxyacetanilide) as sole carbon sources for growth.
(5) Studies of substrate and cosubstrate specificities of mould alpha-glucosidases suggest that the binding site of the active center of mould alpha-glucosidase consits of two subsites--glucone and aglucone ones.
(6) Patients are instructed to wear the mould for 6 months, removing it only to clean or for a change of size.
(7) In all patients except one, specific IgE-antibodies to the respective mould were demonstrated by immunoblotting.
(8) In addition to mesophilic species, xerophilic moulds appear to be common, often developing together with mites.
(9) These antisera were characterized by immunofluorescence and by indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for their reactivity with 44 strains of moulds.
(10) It is recommended to apply cast fillings with a replacement of the occlusive area as quickly after the wax mould as possible because of the diminished gap due to the motion of the teeth.
(11) Agreement between RAST and provocation tests was 79% for the house dust mite Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus, 71.5% for cat and dog epithelium, 70% for the Penicillium mould, 63% for Alternaria, 55% for Hormodendron and Aspergillus and only 53% for house dust.
(12) An isotope dilution technique has been used to analyze the synthesis of metabolically stable nucleic acids during the mitotic cycle in surface plasmodia of the slime mould Physarum polycephalum.
(13) Reactions to moulds were observed in 9% of the patients.
(14) The analyses of more than 200 samples of various foods of plant origin showed that patulin was contained in 36% of the fresh and canned fruits infested with mould, and in 7% of the vegetables.
(15) Other kids were out there playing at whatever; I was off making something blow up and filming it, or making a mould of my sister's head using alginating plaster.
(16) This carnival of camera phones, caressing and even groping (the waxen men do have "moulds" where their private parts would be so that their trousers hang properly, but no, nothing too realistic down there) is the celebrity world were we in control.
(17) A soluble cytochrome was isolated and purified from the slime mould Physarum polycephalum and identified as cytochrome c by room-temperature and low-temperature (77 degrees K) difference spectroscopy.
(18) The use of fibrin as a resorbable biological adhesive permits moulding of HA granules into individually shaped implants.
(19) Under improvement of technology of the cobalt-base-alloy "Gisadent KCM 83", the influence of different mould temperatures to the alloy surface was inquired with help of comparism.
(20) As related to the control lot, the addition of these acid results, in the first two doses, in a decrease and slowing-down of the growth of the mould and the production of its two mycotoxins (patulin and byssochlamic acid).
(v. t.) To shed or cast the hair, feathers, skin, horns, or the like, as an animal or a bird.
(v. t.) To cast, as the hair, skin, feathers, or the like; to shed.
(n.) The act or process of changing the feathers, hair, skin, etc.; molting.
(v. & n.) See Molt.
(1) In cultures of medium ML-15 containing a feeder layer of Dog Sarcoma (DS) cells larvae successfully moulted and showed a small but significant increase in length.
(2) Neither was the autumn moult, induced early in intact females by the change to a short photoperiod, advanced in ganglionectomized females, showing that the latter were unresponsive to the artificial modification of the photoperiod.
(3) Statistical analysis has shown the following: a) the growth inhibition, which is especially distinct in autumn-spring generation, takes place in the Ist instar larvae 1.76-2.20 mm long inhabiting the walls of the nasal cavity and concha (their average body length at hatching is 1.08 plus or minus 0.004 mm); the inhibition is associated with interpopulation relations and apparently does not depend on the date of its beginning and can last from 6 to 7 months; c) after the growth resumption the development continues uninterruptedly up to the moulting; the inhibition is also possible at the beginning of the 2nd instar and then the development proceeds without any intervals up to the complete maturation of larvae.
(4) A sharp rise in trehalose level of haemolymph is observed towards the end of 4th instar accompanied with sudden fall of the sugar in fat body during the same period, but after moulting blood trehalose abruptly decreases.
(5) The allatectomy in the 4th instar larvae of Rhodnius prolixus stops moulting in 93 per cent of the cases.
(6) The metathoracic musculature of the American cockroach Periplaneta americana was denervated by dissecting the nerves originating in the metathoracic ganglion on one side within 2 days after the last moult.
(7) Body-plumage of hens moulted at 11 degrees C was 25% heavier than of hens moulted at 29 degrees C. 3.
(8) One hour after infection, primary larvae appear in the body cavity where they moult immediately.
(9) In females, however, the number of NSG was relatively more than that in males in the Spring premigratory phase but fewer in the moulting phase.
(10) Food intake raises and decreases gradually between two moults.
(11) Trans-stadial transmission was demonstrated through one moult only, and transovarial transmission did not occur.
(12) This in vitro assay, based solely on the occurrence or absence of worm aggregation following the final moult in culture, proved very easy to interpret rapidly and accurately.
(13) A molecular modeling study has proposed that, when Ca2+ binds to the N-terminal triggering sites, helices B and C separate from the helices D and A, thereby exposing a crucial interaction site for troponin I, the inhibitory subunit of troponin [Herzberg, O., Moult, J., and James, M. N. G. (1986) J. Biol.
(14) Three developmental stages were investigated--1 day, 14 days, and 6 weeks after adult moulting.
(15) The effects of the insect growth regulator diflubenzuron (DFB) were observed on the larval-larval and larval-pupal moulting cycles of Tenebrio molitor, after treatment at ecdysis.
(16) Virus persisted transstadially as shown by the presence of an average of 10(3.4) PFU in newly moulted adults.
(17) Cauterization of the pars intercerebralis after the critical period of the prothoracic gland activity does not affect moulting in any way.
(18) In normal, non-expanding toad epidermis more cells are produced than needed to replace cells lost by moulting.
(19) Variation in temperature (4-40 degrees C) had a significant effect on moulting rate of the ticks and transmission of theilerial parasites from nymphs to resultant adults.
(20) Thymus enlargement in both young and adults has been found to be accompanied by marked erythropoietic activity within the gland, and it is suggested that this activity is related to an increased demand for erythrocytes which may occur during moult and breeding.
