(13) "The proposed 'reform' is designed to legitimise this blatantly unfair, police state practice, while leaving the rest of the criminal procedure law as misleading decoration," said Professor Jerome Cohen, an expert on China at New York University's School of Law.
(14) Beyond this, physicians learn from specific problems that arise in practice.
(15) This observation, reinforced by simultaneous determinations of cortisol levels in the internal spermatic and antecubital veins, practically excluded the validity of the theory of adrenal hormonal suppression of testicular tissues.

(18) Single dose therapy is recommended as the treatment of choice for bacterial cystitis in domiciliary practice.
(19) The cyclical nature of pyromania has parallels in cycles of reform in standards of civil commitment (Livermore, Malmquist & Meehl, 1958; Dershowitz, 1974), in the use of physical therapies and medications (Tourney, 1967; Mora, 1974), in treatment of the chronically mentally ill (Deutsch, 1949; Morrissey & Goldman, 1984), and in institutional practices (Treffert, 1967; Morrissey, Goldman & Klerman (1980).
(20) Reasons for non-acceptance do not indicate any major difficulties in the employment of such staff in general practice, at least as far as the patients are concerned.
(n.) The urus.
(n.) Use; practice; exercise.
(v. t.) To use; to exercise; to inure; to accustom by practice.

(5) It starts to feel like it’s a process where if you give money you solve the problem, and really sometimes giving money creates another problem.” When he was told there was just one African-born performer on the track, he said: “That’s great, just a few more would be nice and also maybe go there – all those people who are making that.” Ultravox’s Midge Ure said the song was by no means a masterpiece, but is more about getting people as engaged with the fight against Ebola as they were in 1984, when a total of £8m was raised.
(6) Diagnosis depends on detection of persistent bacteriuria by careful screening and culture of properly collected uring specimens.
(7) The rIL-2 infusion caused a reversible fall in ures and a non-reversible rise in creatinine.
(8) The experimental evidence suggests that either the repression associated with the URE sequence is mediated by a direct, one-to-one interaction between the proteins recognizing the URE and GCRE, or alternatively, that there is a direct interaction between the activator and repressor for a general transcription factor.
(9) Furthermore, repression is seen when the URE is separated from the UAS by up to 214 bp.
(10) This suggests that either a different accessory element and cognate protein interacts with the horse URE to provide placenta-specific expression or that a completely different set of regulatory elements is required for placenta-specific expression in horses.

(12) The predicted UreE and UreG polypeptides exhibit some degree of similarity with the respective polypeptides encoded by the accessory genes of the Klebsiella aerogenes urease operon (33 and 92% similarity, respectively, taking into account conservative amino acid changes), whereas this homology was restricted to a domain of the UreF polypeptide (44% similarity for the last 73 amino acids of the K. aerogenes UreF polypeptide).
(13) We have cloned ivoB which codes for a conidiophore-specific phenol oxidase (AHTase) via the adjacent selectable ureD gene.
(14) Nuclear proteins extracted from JEG-3 choriocarcinoma cells bind specifically to oligonucleotides corresponding to both the URE and CRE domains as well as to a downstream domain (-99 to -72) that contains consensus CCAAT motifs on both the sense and antisense strands.
(15) Thus, one or more of the ureE, ureF, or ureG gene products are involved in nickel incorporation into urease.
(16) Adult DDE and URE were induced to express seminal cytodifferentiation and produced the complete spectrum of major seminal vesicle secretory (SVS) proteins.

(18) In transient expression assays, the upstream and downstream domains of the URE were shown to independently enhance CRE-mediated transcription of the alpha gene.
(19) Binding to this multisite DNA fragment is readily disrupted using the URE sequence, but not the CRE sequence as a competitor, suggesting that the URE binding factor may stabilize DNA-protein interactions in these adjacent complexes.
(20) This new regulatory element is highly conserved across species and contains a palindromic binding site for a 50-kDa nuclear factor(s) which is distinct from the factors that bind the URE, CRE, and CCAAT box of the alpha subunit gene.
