(17) The indication of the DNA probe method would be considered in the four cases as follows, 1. necessity of the special equipment to isolate the pathogen, 2. necessity of the long period to isolate the pathogen, 3. existence of the cross reaction among the pathogen and relative organisms in the immunological procedure, 4. existence of the difficulty to identify the species of the pathogen by the ordinary procedure.
(18) Slight cross-reactivity was apparent when crude preparations of cellular or culture filtrate antigens, used in this laboratory to detect antibodies to Candida albicans, Coccidioides immitis and Cryptococcus neoformans, were probed with hyperimmune rabbit antisera to A. fumigatus.
(19) The results, together with the known geometry of the enzyme, indicate that active site probes in the dodecamer are widely separated and that energy transfer occurs from a single donor to two or three acceptors on adjacent subunits.
(20) The availability of locus-specific probes should significantly expand the role of minisatellite markers in population biology.
(n.) A lever; also, leverage.
(v. t.) To raise or move, or attempt to raise or move, with a pry or lever; to prize.
(v. i.) To peep narrowly; to gaze; to inspect closely; to attempt to discover something by a scrutinizing curiosity; -- often implying reproach.
(n.) Curious inspection; impertinent peeping.
(1) Affinity-purified human placental ribonuclease inhibitor (PRI) was digested by trypsin.
(2) I used to tease him with the suggestion he had chosen me as walking companion because I had no mathematics at all and so he was safe from prying questions, but in fact now and then he did used to tell me about what he was doing – and how clear it all seemed when he spoke!
(3) Human placental ribonuclease inhibitor (PRI), a 50-kDa tight-binding inhibitor of angiogenin and pancreatic ribonuclease, consists predominantly of 7 internal repeats, each 57 residues long.
(4) Deep in the taiga, the Mordovian colonies are well away from prying eyes.
(5) Peña Nieto’s Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, suffered a severe reverse in regional elections last month as voters punished the party for failing to crack down on corruption, impunity and brutal drug gang violence.
(6) Open the phone just enough to reveal the metal bracket covering the home button cable, remove it with tweezers, and pry the connector up from its socket.
(7) Similarly, the development of ventriculomegaly may depend upon cerebral elastic properties besides the pri mary disturbance of CSF dynamics.
(8) Before Vicente Fox became president in 2000, the Institutional Revolutionary party (PRI) had won every election since 1929.
(9) Thirty DES-exposed women aged 17-30 years and 30 control women with a history of abnormal Pap smear findings were interviewed with the SADS-L and completed the SCL-90-R and the PRI-Q.
(10) However, the PrI sera of these horses showed reactivity at various intensities with one to seven of the component antigens.
(11) The pantographic reproducibility index (PRI) has been developed to quantitate incoordinated mandibular movements; one of the signs and symptoms of TMJ dysfunction.
(12) Data from this study suggest that the MGPQ-PRI might be useful for the assessment of fibromyalgic pain in a clinical setting and during follow-up of the disease.
(13) The arrangement of overlapping genes at the pri locus of IncP alpha plasmids also appears to be present in the IncP beta group.
(14) So pry between the boards of the housing recovery and the termites start crawling out.
(15) The delay in the postcastration increase in plasma level of LH in the OVX hens was not associated with anorexia of incubating hens, since plasma levels of LH were not affected by force-feeding unless plasma levels of PRI were suppressed by nest deprivation.
(16) Some people are also afraid that prying eyes might spot Prep, which can also be used for HIV treatment, in a person’s medicine cabinet and assume that they are positive.
