(18) Opine synthase activities were also observed in homogenates made from these tumors.
(19) Other compounds include specific monosaccharides and acidic environments which potentiate vir gene induction, acidic polysaccharides which induce one or more chromosomal genes, and a family of compounds called opines which are released from tumorous plant cells to the bacteria as nutrient sources.
(20) The enzyme catalyzed a reversible oxidation-reduction reaction of opine-type secondary amine dicarboxylic acids.

(n.) A rigid and sharp projection upon any part of an animal.
(n.) One of the rigid and undivided fin rays of a fish.
(n.) The backbone, or spinal column, of an animal; -- so called from the projecting processes upon the vertebrae.
(n.) Anything resembling the spine or backbone; a ridge.
(1) Univariate and multivariate analyses indicated previous LBP or back pain in another location of the spine were strongly associated with LBP during the study year.
(2) In contrast, the ryanodine receptor is observed in dendritic shafts, but not in the spines.
(3) We reviewed the results of intraoperative monitoring of short-latency cortical evoked potentials in 81 patients who underwent surgical procedures of the cervical spine.
(4) Unrecognized flexion injuries of the cervical spine may lead to late instability and neurologic damage.
(5) The present case indicates that the possibility of osseous spines impinging on the facial nerve should be considered in all cases of facial spasm.
(6) The results of conventional sciatic nerve stretching tests are usually evaluated regardless of patient age, gender or movements of the hip joint and spine.

(12) The left scapula in each dog was treated by open reduction and plating of the scapular spine.
