(n.) A sailing canoe of the Ladrone Islands and Malay Archipelago, having its lee side flat and its weather side like that of an ordinary boat. The ends are alike. The canoe is long and narrow, and is kept from overturning by a cigar-shaped log attached to a frame extending several feet to windward. It has been called the flying proa, and is the swiftest sailing craft known.
(1) An Hfr13 Delta(proA-lac) deletion recipient, -Delta(proA-lac)-F-purE(+)-, has been utilized in a study of the origins of duplications formed during chromosome fragment integration.
(2) Subcloning showed that about 3.1 kilobases of V. parahaemolyticus DNA could complement proA and proB but not proC mutations of Escherichia coli.
(3) A library of Desulfovibrio desulfuricans Norway genomic DNA was constructed in Escherichia coli with pBR322 as vector and plasmids able to complement the proA and leuB mutations of the host were screened.
(4) N-acetylglutamic gamma-semialdehyde, if deacetylated, would produce glutamic gamma-semialdehyde, the proline precursor whose synthesis from glutamate is blocked in proA and proAB mutants.
(5) The proA gene encodes a typical 21-aa N-terminal signal sequence which, when fused to alkaline phosphatase by means of transposon TnphoA, was able to mediate transport of the alkaline phosphatase to the periplasm in E. coli.
(6) Eleven variants able to grow without proline (provided arginine was absent) were obtained by spontaneous mutation from Salmonella typhimurium LT7 proA and proAB deletion mutants.
(7) The mutations were linked to the proA, thr-48, lys-9015, argF10, and argG markers.
(8) The genes, proA and proP, each contain two introns.
(9) The following gene order has been established: gpt-proB-proA-ataA-supQ-newD.
(10) In proline auxotrophs blocked at an early step in proline biosynthesis (proA or proB), reversion to prototrophy is often due to a mutation in the arginine pathway which diverts N-acetyl glutamate gamma-semialdehyde to proline synthesis, thus bypassing the proA or proB block.
(11) Both conjugational and transductional data suggest that the strain carrying the proB(-) mutation also carries a second mutation close to the proA site which independently confers a Pro(-) phenotype.
(12) P22pro-1 and P22pro-3 are specialized transducing derivatives of phage P22 that carry the proA and proB genes of Salmonella typhimurium.
(13) Other supQ deletions are simultaneously Pro(-), because they extend into the proA or proA and proB genes; some extend even further, i.e., into the gpt gene (guanine phosphoribosyl transferase).
(14) From our sequence data the proB (1101 bp) and proA (1472 bp) genes were shown to code for two proteins of Mr 39,169 and 44,640, respectively.
(15) The former was mapped between tonA and proA, and the latter between the origin of genetic transfer of HfrH and serB.
(16) pIP218 retained all the other properties from F of HfrH: derepression for pilus synthesis, mobilization of the chromosome for the proximally transferred HfrH genes (thr, leu, proA), interference with T7 propagation, and ability to be cured by acridine orange.
(17) Gene defects in proA (five strains) and in proB (six strains) were identified by gonococcal transformation assays with recombinant bacteriophages or plasmids carrying proline biosynthesis genes from N. gonorrhoeae.
(18) Although, th recombinant plasmids containing the proA and proB genes were able to complement the Pro- phenotype of different E. coli strains, bacteria harboring these plasmids did not excrete L-proline to the culture medium.
(19) Strain 1485IN had acquired proline auxotrophy, but showed the same growth rate as W1485 in nutrient broth at 37 degrees C. Interrupted matings with Hfr strains of 1485IN revealed a gene arrangement of nalA-gal-trp-his-lac-proA-thrleu-ilv, in which gal, trp, and his were on the inverted segment.
(20) A thrombin-like proteinase (THROLP) was detected colorimetrically as the main proteolytic activity (PROA) in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) 4 and 24 h after ovalbumin aerosol (OVA) challenge of actively immunized rats.
(n.) A hollow or concave utensil for holding anything; a hollow receptacle of any kind, as a hogshead, a barrel, a firkin, a bottle, a kettle, a cup, a bowl, etc.
(n.) A general name for any hollow structure made to float upon the water for purposes of navigation; especially, one that is larger than a common rowboat; as, a war vessel; a passenger vessel.
(n.) Fig.: A person regarded as receiving or containing something; esp. (Script.), one into whom something is conceived as poured, or in whom something is stored for use; as, vessels of wrath or mercy.
(n.) Any tube or canal in which the blood or other fluids are contained, secreted, or circulated, as the arteries, veins, lymphatics, etc.
(n.) A continuous tube formed from superposed large cylindrical or prismatic cells (tracheae), which have lost their intervening partitions, and are usually marked with dots, pits, rings, or spirals by internal deposition of secondary membranes; a duct.
(v. t.) To put into a vessel.
(1) Arterial compliance of great vessels can be studied through the Doppler evaluation of pulsed wave velocity along the arterial tree.
(2) With aging, the blood vessel wall becomes hyperreactive--presumably because of an augmented vasoconstrictor and a reduced vasodilator responsiveness.
(3) Multiple overlapping thin 3D slab acquisition is presented as a magnitude contrast (time of flight) technique which combines advantages from multiple thin slice 2D and direct 3D volume acquisitions to obtain high-resolution cross-sectional images of vessel detail.
(4) In the course of the syndrome development blood vessel permeability was increased in the anterior chamber of the eye.
(5) Aside from these characteristic findings of HCC, it was important to reveal the following features for the diagnosis of well differentiated type of small HCC: variable thickening or distortion of trabecular structure in association with nuclear crowding, acinar formation, selective cytoplasmic accumulation of Mallory bodies, nuclear abnormalities consisting of thickening of nucleolus, hepatic cords in close contact with bile ducts or blood vessels, and hepatocytes growing in a fibrous environment.
(6) Two fully matured specimens were collected from the blood vessel of two fish, Theragra chalcogramma, which was bought at the Emun market of Seoul in May, 1985.
(7) Its pathogenesis, still incompletely elucidated, involves the precipitation of immune complexes in the walls of the all vessels.
(8) In one of the cirrhotic patients, postmortem correlation of sonographic, angiographic, and pathological findings showed that the dilated vessels seen on sonography were cystic veins draining normally into the portal vein rather than portosystemic anastomoses.
(9) The observed pulmonary hypertension is probably the result of the left heart insufficiency and is being discussed with regard of the histopathological alterations in the heart muscle and the pulmonary vessels.
(10) DNA synthesis by endothelium subsequently increased and within 48 hr new blood vessel formation was detected.
(11) There was immediate resolution of paresthesia following mobilization of the impinging vessel from the nerve.
(12) After examining the cases reported in literature (Sacks, Barabas, Beighton Sykes), they point out that, contrary to what is generally believed, the syndrome is not rare and cases, sporadic or familial, of recurrent episodes of spontaneous rupture of the intestine and large vessels or peripheral arteries are frequent.
(13) The relationship between pressure at the functional site of origin of intracranial collateral channels (Pstem) and systemic pressure allows an estimation of the size of vascular channels from which collateral vessels originate.
(14) The release of possible peptide hormones into the interpeduncular cistern, where a pool of cerebrospinal fluid and large blood vessels occur, cannot be excluded.
(15) It is suggested that intra-endothelial conduction of electrical signals from capillaries to the resistance vessels may be involved in the local regulation of blood flow in the intact heart.
(16) Type C-like particles were found inter- and intracellularly in gland and vessel lumina and scattered in the connective tissue.
(17) We have characterized the effects of adenosine, the A1-receptor agonist N6-(L-2-phenylisopropyl)-adenosine (PIA) and the A2-receptor agonist 5'-(N-ethyl)-carboxamido-adenosine (NECA), in isolated human pulmonary vessels.
(18) It appears that the viscosity of the arterial wall must be the major source of attenuation in the larger arteries, while the viscosity of the blood plays a significant role only in the smaller vessels.
(19) In the choroid, VIP-immunoreactive fibers were seen mainly in close association with the choroidal blood vessels.
(20) Resistance vessels play a predominant role in limiting systemic arterial pressure in the orthostatic position.
