(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.

(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).

(1) The predicted non-Lorentzian line shapes and widths were found to be in good agreement with experimental results, indicating that the local orientational order (called "packing" by many workers) in the bilayers of small vesicles and in multilamellar membranes is substantially the same.
(2) 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.
(3) A J-shaped relationship with a dip at the middle SBP (140-149 mmHg) was recognized between treated SBP and CVD.

(5) In this paper we present a robust algorithm to determine automatically contours with elliptical shapes.
(6) Sickle and normal discocytes both showed membrane elasticity with reversion to original cell shape following release of the cell from its aspirated position at the pipette tip.
(7) These observations suggest that the liver secretes disk-shaped lipid bilayer particles which represent both the nascent form of high density lipoproteins and preferred substrate for lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase.
(8) The heterogeneity of obesity may be demonstrated by the shape of fat distribution and the prolactin response to insulin hypoglycaemia.
(9) We present numerical methods for studying the relationship between the shape of the vocal tract and its acoustic output.
(10) The shape of the nucleus changes from ovoid to a distinctive, radially splayed lobulated structure.
(11) Urinalysis revealed a low pH, increased ketones and bilirubin excretion, dark yellowish change in color, the appearance of "leaflet-shaped" crystals and increased red blood cells and epithelial cells in the urinary sediment, increased water intake, decreased specific gravity and decreased sodium, potassium and chloride in the urine.
(12) The drop in endosome pH increased and the shape of the distribution changed when the time between FITC-dextran infusion and kidney removal was increased from 5 to 20 min.
(13) Taking into account the calculated volume and considering the triangular image as one face of the particle, it is suggested that eIF-3 has the shape of a flat triangular prism with a height of about 7 nm and the above-mentioned side-lengths.
(14) The complex problems have been successfully managed with novel guiding catheter shapes and ultralow profile balloons.
(15) Thus obtained body shape variables were used in discriminant analysis in order to obtain unbiased classification probabilities of individuals having the MBS or being normal.
(16) These early hyperplastic lesions revealed stellate-shaped dilated bile canaliculi lined by blebs and abnormally thick elongated microvilli, a decreased number of microvilli on the sinusoidal surface, a marked increase in smooth endoplasmic reticulum, large nucleoli, and bundles of pericanalicular microfilaments.

(18) The mutant spores are pleomorphic and differ both in shape and size from the wild-type spores.
(19) This lack of symmetry in shape and magnitude may be due to non-sphericity of the skull over the temporal region or to variations in conductivities of intervening tissues.
