(n.) A person or a nation that takes no part in a contest between others; one who is neutral.
(1) F(420) is photolabile aerobically in neutral and basic solutions, whereas the acid-stable chromophore is not photolabile under these conditions.
(2) Further analysis with two other synthetic peptides (212Cys to 222Glu and Cys X 221Ile to 236Glu) indicated that the dodecapeptide Ile-Glu-Phe-Gln-Lys-Asn-Asn-Arg-Leu-Leu-Glu mimicked either the whole or a major part of the neutralization epitope.
(3) In addition to esophageal manometry, we also performed acid-clearance studies and examined salivary output, acid-neutralizing capacity, and bicarbonate concentration.
(4) The presence of the expected C19 neutral and C18 phenolic steroids was confirmed.
(5) The free nucleoside IV was obtained by removal of blocking groups by sodium methoxide catalyzed deacylation, deionization under reducing atmosphere, and chromatography on neutral alumina.
(6) The spikes likely correspond to VP3, a hemagglutinin, while the rest of the mass density in the outer shell represents 780 molecules of VP7, a neutralization antigen.
(7) Poly (8NH2G) does not interact with poly(C) in neutral solution because of the high stability of the hemiprotonated G-G self-structure.
(8) Interaction of viable macrophages with cationic particles at 37 degrees C resulted in their "internalization" within vesicles and coated pits and a closer apposition between many segments of plasmalemma than with neutral or anionic substances.
(9) Most of the antibodies had some degree of complement-independent neutralizing capacity, but in common was a large neutralization-resistant fraction of virus (range 13 to 78%).
(10) Neutral sucrose density sedimentation patterns indicate that neutron-induced double strand-breaks sometimes occur in clusters of more than 100 in the same phage and that the effeciency with which double strand-breaks form is about 50 times that of gamma-induced double strand-breaks.
(11) None of these MAbs showed any virus-neutralizing activity in vitro; however, mice passively immunized with the purified MAbs were protected from lethal infection by the JHM strain of mouse hepatitis virus.
(12) This cell type often showed supranuclear lysozyme reactivity and apical neutral mucins, sialomucins, and sulphomucins in variable amounts.
(13) Many organisations choose not to affiliate their aid work with the UN, particularly in conflict situations, where the organisation is not always seen either as neutral or separate from the work of the UN security council.
(14) Phosphatidylcholine dispersed on Celite was rapidly solubilized by neutral bovine serum albumin solutions.
(15) Term pregnancy (TP) or nonpregnancy (NP) pooled sera were fractionated on a S-300 neutral column.
(16) The relative importance of each of these growth factors in the in vivo situation will have to be elucidated by future studies using specific receptor antagonists or neutralizing antibodies.
(17) A highly significant correlation was observed between neutralization of indirect hemolysis and neutralization of lethal activity.
(18) One p-nitrophenyl phosphate phosphatase (A) and five protein phosphatases (B, C, D, E, F) with neutral pH optimum (7.0-7.5) were partially purified from human platelets.
(19) Analysis of literature data in which both the in vivo protection test and the in vitro neutralization test results were available on the same sera showed consistency with the above conclusions for both cattle and swine sera.
(20) Ruminal digestion (% of intake) of neutral detergent fiber (NDF) and hemicellulose decreased linearly (P less than .05), whereas acid detergent fiber (ADF) digestion responded in a cubic (P less than .05) fashion to increasing concentrate level; NaHCO3 improved ruminal digestion of NDF (P less than .10) and ADF (P less than .05), but not hemicellulose.
(v. t.) The act of plundering; robbery; deprivation; despoliation.
(v. t.) Robbery or plunder in war; especially, the authorized act or practice of plundering neutrals at sea.
(v. t.) The act of an incumbent in taking the fruits of his benefice without right, but under a pretended title.
(v. t.) A process for possession of a church in a spiritual court.
(v. t.) Injury done to a document.
(1) This apparatus executes permanently and automatically the taking of biological fluid, estimates its outflow, amounts its total and realizes or the reinstillation of the fluid in the digestive tract or the order of intravenous perfusion tied to fluid spoliation according to an adjustable connection.
(2) This case highlights the rare complications of cholelithiasis (hematobilia and cholecyto-colic fistula) and the severity of blood spoliation.
(3) Hydrophilic contact lens spoliation can be associated with the deposition of calcium salts.
(4) To resolve cases where ownership is disputed, the government set up a committee known as the spoliation advisory panel in 2000.
(5) This relative spoliation in pancreatic blood supply as hypovolemia proceeds supports an ischemic etiology of acute pancreatitis (AP), which could account for some of the so-called idiopathic cases of AP.
(6) The Lasthenie de Ferjol Syndrome associates an iron-deficient anemia by blood auto-spoliation with mental disorders.
(7) The aim of the Automaton Resuscitation is execution, watching and maintenance of a programme of intricate resuscitation tying for the first time the therapeutic to extemporaneous outflow of biological spoliation.
(8) Moreover it allows with fiability the reinstillation of the gastric, duodenal, bilious, pancreatic or intestinal juice, on the other hand an intravenous perfusion tied to spontaneous spoliation (digestive) or instigated spoliation (provocated diuresis) and in a fundamental way simplifies the work of the physicians and the nurses.
(9) A recent report from our laboratory showed that pancreatic inflammation induced by hypovolemic shock can be explained to some extent by spoliation in pancreatic perfusion as revealed by electromagnetic flow determinations on the gastroduodenal artery (GDA).
(10) Local calcium concentrations are unlikely therefore to be a significant primary factor in soft contact lens spoliation, but the enlargement of the tear pool associated with the use of a soft contact lens does greatly increase the amount of calcium present, and this may be a factor in secondary deposition.
