(8) This is an Islamist who shakes hands with unveiled women and opines that Christians often have more self-respect than Muslims.
(9) We constructed cassettes which contained either the putative transport genes only or the complete occ or noc region; all constructs, however, included the elements necessary for opine-induced expression of the genes (the regulatory gene and the inducible promoters).
(10) Strains MBA209 and NA513 utilized mannopine and mannopinic acid, but not the other two mannityl opines.

(12) "Hiddink should stop sticking his head up other players' arses," opined Davids to one foreign journalist afterwards.
(13) Ti plasmids of Agrobacterium tumefaciens are conjugal elements whose transfer is induced by certain opines secreted from crown galls.
(14) His elevation as a Conservative folk hero stalled after he opined on whether the "Negro" shouldn't be back in chains.
(15) Before you know it anyone who wants to be considered serious is opining that the country is "obviously insolvent".
(16) "It was the second time hosting the Academy Awards for Ellen DeGeneres, whose first stint as host in 2007 was one of the decade's best," he opined.
(17) In his letter delivering the cut to Sue Campbell , chair of the Youth Sport Trust, Gove opined that, while he recognised schools have "increased participation" of children in PE, the number playing competitive sport "has remained disappointingly low".
(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.
(v. t.) To introduce indirectly to the thoughts; to cause to be thought of, usually by the agency of other objects.
(v. t.) To propose with difference or modesty; to hint; to intimate; as, to suggest a difficulty.
(v. t.) To seduce; to prompt to evil; to tempt.
(v. t.) To inform secretly.
(v. i.) To make suggestions; to tempt.
(1) The evidence suggests a multifactorial etiology for this problem.
(2) The accumulation of lipids and enzymes such as simple estarase, lipase, beta-HDH, alpha-GDH and NADPH-reductase in those areas, suggests that lipids are not a simple excretory product.
(3) Our results suggest that the peripheral sensitivity to hypoxia declined more than that to CO2, implying a peripheral chemoreceptor origin for hypoxic ventilatory decline.
(4) These data suggest that the hybrid is formed by the same mechanism in the absence and presence of the urea step.
(5) This suggested that the chemical effects produced by shock waves were either absent or attenuated in the cells, or were inherently less toxic than those of ionizing irradiation.
(6) Patients with papillary carcinoma with a good cell-mediated immune response occurred with much lower infiltration of the tumor boundary with lymphocyte whereas the follicular carcinoma less cell-mediated immunity was associated with dense lymphocytic infiltration, suggesting the biological relevance of lymphocytic infiltration may be different for the two histologic variants.
(7) Since fingernail creatinine (Ncr) reflects serum creatinine (Scr) at the time of nail formation, it has been suggested that Ncr level might represent that of Scr around 4 months previously.
(8) Therefore, it is suggested that PE patients without endogenous erythroid colonies may follow almost the same clinical course as SP patients.
(9) We also show that proliferation of primary amnion cells is not dependent on a high c-fos expression, suggesting that the function of c-fos is more likely to be associated with other cellular functions in the differentiated amnion cell.
(10) The high amino acid levels in the cells suggest that these cells act as inter-organ transporters and reservoirs of amino acids, they have a different role in their handling and metabolism from those of mammals.
(11) The low affinity of several N1-alkylpyrroleethylamines suggests that the benzene portion of the alpha-methyltryptamines is necessary for significant affinity.
(12) The interaction of the antibody with both the bacterial and the tissue derived polysialic acids suggests that the conformational epitope critical for the interaction is formed by both classes of compounds.
(13) It is suggested that the Japanese may have lower trabecular bone mineral density than Caucasians but may also have a lower threshold for fracture of the vertebrae.
(14) Our data suggest that a rational use of surveillance cultures and serological tests may aid in an earlier diagnosis of FI in BMT patients.
(15) These results demonstrate that increased availability of galactose, a high-affinity substrate for the enzyme, leads to increased aldose reductase messenger RNA, which suggests a role for aldose reductase in sugar metabolism in the lens.
(16) Bilateral symmetric soft-tissue masses posterior to the glandular tissue with accompanying calcifications should suggest the diagnosis.
(17) Together these results suggest that IVC may operate as a selective activator of calpain both in the cytosol and at the membrane level; in the latter case in synergism with the activation induced by association of the proteinase to the cell membrane.
(18) These results suggest the presence of a new antigen-antibody system for another human type C retrovirus related antigens(s) and a participation of retrovirus in autoimmune diseases.
(19) It has recently been suggested that procaine penicillin existed in solution in vitro and in vivo as a "procaine - penicillin" complex rather than as dissociated ions.
(20) The extent of the infectious process was limited, however, because the life span of the cultures was not significantly shortened, the yields of infectious virus per immunofluorescent cell were at all times low, and most infected cells contained only a few well-delineated small masses of antigen, suggestive of an abortive infection.
