(n.) A goddess of the mountains, forests, meadows, or waters.
(n.) A lovely young girl; a maiden; a damsel.
(n.) The pupa of an insect; a chrysalis.
(n.) Any one of a subfamily (Najades) of butterflies including the purples, the fritillaries, the peacock butterfly, etc.; -- called also naiad.
(1) A relationship between the level of sterility induced by juvenoids and reductions in nymph-to-adult ratios permitted formulation of a biological action threshold for regulating treatment.
(2) After molting, resulting nymphs (n = 74) were fed on susceptible mice.
(3) sp., described from wild-caught and laboratory-reared females, males, nymphs, and larvae parasitizing the Humboldt Penguin, Spheniscus humboldti Meyen, is the fifth species of the Ornithodoros (Alectorobius) capensis group to be recognized in the Neotropical Region.
(4) It was found to remain intact until at least 11, 30 and 10 days after repletion in larvae, nymphs and females, respectively.
(5) The mayfly nymphs, Habrophlebia lauta Eaton and H. fusca (Curtis) were found to serve as experimental intermediate hosts.
(6) Extremely high concentrations of Vg were observed in the hemolymph of female nymphs (fourth instar), particularly engorged nymphs, treated with CyM (10 micrograms).
(7) Nymphs produced by the interrupted larval feeding method feed well on cattle, in regard to timing of detachment and weight, compared with nymphs produced by interrupted feeding on rabbits.
(8) The accumulating process and concentration ratios of ingested blood meals in the larvae and nymphs of Amblyomma testudinarium, Haemaphysalis campanulata, H. concinna, H. formosensis, H. hystricis, H. kitaokai, the bisexual and parthenogenetic strains of H. longicornis, H. megaspinosa, and Ixodes persulcatus on rabbits and Argas japonicus on chickens were comparatively investigated.
(9) Last week we hatched our 13,000th baby nymph – that’s the number that hatched since 2003, when we hatched our first ones.
(10) In addition, fenoxycarb caused mortality in 59% of the nymphs treated on day 6.
(11) The percentage of nymphs infected correlated with the viremic titer on the final day of engorgement (the time of maximum blood uptake).
(12) Rates of infection were 5.4% in adults (n = 467) and 3.4% in nymphs (n = 289); 15.6% of clusters of unengorged larvae harbored B. burgdorferi, suggesting transovarial passage of the spirochete.
(13) Inputs to the model were the temporal patterns of recruitment of nymphs into the active class, mortality and successful acquisition of hosts by the ticks.
(14) The fatty acid synthetase was active from Nymph L stage.
(15) Amblyomma cohaerens nymphs, which had been collected as engorged larvae from African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) in the Mara region of Kenya, transmitted a theilerial parasite to a steer.
(16) In order to study schizogony and merozoite formation, D. variabilis nymphs were allowed to feed on domestic cats experimentally infected with C. felis, after which the molted adult ticks were fed on susceptible cats.
(17) Development of the protozoan parasite Nuttallia danii was observed in salivary glands which were extirpated from Hyalomma anatolicum excavatum nymphs, fed as larvae on infected gerbils and held in organ culture.
(18) 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.
(19) A total of 317 ticks (202 nymphs and 115 adults) from three different sites were examined for the spirochaete Borrelia burgdorferi Johnson et al.
(20) In the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa, larvae and nymphs of Ablyomma marmoreum Koch occur in habitats in which there is tree cover and herbaceous ground cover.
(n.) One of the nymphs of mountains and grottoes.
(1) The lectins isolated (and the particular sugar ligands used in the affinity carriers) are as follows: Anguilla anguilla, serum (alpha-L-fucosyl-), Vicia cracca, seeds; Phaseolus lunatus, seeds; Glycine soja, seeds; Dolichos biflorus, seeds; Maclura pomifera, seeds; Sarothamnus scoparius, seeds; Helix pomatia, ablumin glands; Clitocybe nebularis, fruiting bodies (all N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosaminyl-); Ricinus communis, seeds (beta-lactosyl-); Ononis spinosa, root; Fomes fomentarius, fruiting bodies; Marasmius oreades, fruiting bodies (all alpha-D-galactosyl-), Canavalia ensiformis, seeds, (i.e., concanavalin A) (alpha-D-glucosyl-).
(2) From the fruit body of the fungus Marasmius oreades (family Tricholomataceae), 4,4-dimethyl-5 alpha-ergosta-8,24(28)-dien-3 beta-ol (1), probably a biogenetic precursor of ergosterol, has been isolated along with ergosterol.
(3) All the lectins studied (from the seeds of Dolichos biflorus, Glycine soja, Lens esculenta and Vicia cracca and of the fruiting body of Marasmius oreades) were characterized by a similar course of pH dependence of the association constants, with the maximum values at pH 7--9.
