(18) In the families of flowering plants in which these organs occur, they are patterned with the sepals in the outermost whorl or whorls of the flower, with the petals next closest to the center, the stamens even closer to the center, and the carpels central.
(19) The programmed senescence of carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus L.) petals requires active gene expression and is associated with the expression of several senescence-related mRNAs.
(20) In petunia, the gene Po regulates the expression of CHI in anthers: PoPo petunia lines contain CHI enzyme activity in petals and anthers, whereas popo lines contain the CHI enzyme only in petals but not in anthers.

(n.) One of the terminal hooks on the foot of an insect.
(n.) The slender base of a petal in some flowers; a claw; called also ungula.

(2) Pterygium inversum unguis (PIU) is a digital anomaly characterized by adherence of the subungueal tissue to the ventral surface of the distal nail plates.
(3) These strongly suggest that the fibrous structure of organic matrix assists the orientation of apatite crystals in Lingula unguis shell.

(6) An unusual case of pterygium unguis involving all the nails is reported and the possible causes of such onychopathy are briefly discussed.
(7) The retractor unguis motor neurons, synergistic to the depressors, are, like them, excited by ventral contact but, like the levator, are inhibited by afferents which can signal the end of the stance phase.
(8) However, while the glutamate uptake in the CI and SETi nerve endings of the slow 135cd is comparable to the high-affinity uptake of glutamate in the fast excitor tibiae (FETi) nerve endings of the fast retractor unguis muscle, a high-affinity uptake of glutamate was only demonstrated in the glia of both types of nerve endings.
