(10) DNA from 9% (47 of 529) of the E. coli colonies tested hybridized with the ST probe, whereas only 5% (28 of 529) produced ST as measured by the suckling mouse bioassay.
(11) Likewise, they had little or no effects on the fluorescence anisotropy of TMA-DPH, which is also thought to be located in the interfacial region of the lipid bilayer, either when the probe was located in the outer layer of the plasma membrane or when the probe was located in the inner membrane compartment.
(12) Sequence specific binding of protein extracts from 13 different yeast species to three oligonucleotide probes and two points mutants derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae DNA binding proteins were tested using mobility shift assays.
(13) The probe has been used for the identification of new Legionella-like strains isolated from the environment.
(14) Therefore, we conclude this is a bovine DR beta-like pseudogene, BoDR beta I. Exon-containing regions have been used as probes in Southern blot analyses of bovine genomic DNA digested with EcoRI.
(15) The adherence of 51Cr-labeled platelets to rabbit aortae everted on probes rotated in platelet-red cell suspensions has been measured.
(16) A 2.7-kilobase DNA fragment carrying the entire exotoxin A (ETA) structural gene was divided into three nonoverlapping probes.
(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.
(1) He tells a Twitter account promoting Rosetta Stone linguistics software, "If you speak English,YOU DO NOT NEED ANY OTHER LANGUAGE."
(2) The new movie marks a partial return to the thematic territory of Rosetta , which concerned a teenage girl scrabbling around for menial jobs.
(3) This cell surface molecule is detected by a rosetta assay in which the stem cells form rosettes with glutaraldehyde-fixed trypsinized rabbit erythrocytes.
(4) The film is their first since Rosetta to focus so solely on a female lead – necessary, said Jean-Pierre, because "this would never happen to a man".
(5) We don’t want them getting overcooked, now, do we.” 3.15pm BST Online shopping site ThinkGeek unveiled its annual slew of faux products including a Klingon edition of Rosetta Stone’s language learning suite, a beard machine and a unicorn drinking horn: “Perfect for casual reenactors or immortality-seeking dark wizards.” "Perfect for the fanciest toasts - either at home or at the faire!"
(6) So, in the absence of possessing said knowledge myself, I have consulted the Rosetta Stone of female flauntage, Mail Online .
(7) Meanwhile, almost 700m kilometres from Earth, a spacecraft called Rosetta is heading for a rendezvous with a comet , to touch down on its frosty surface and join it on its journey towards the sun, in a bid to understand more about the workings of the solar system.
(8) Decision theory's role in medicine will lie between the extremes of naive optimism ("a Rosetta stone") and unmitigated pessimism ("a computerized Ouija board").
(9) So far, what he calls his "Rosetta stone", which was found at Bergen wharf, is the only place in which it is possible to be sure what the jötunvillur code says, although he believes another rune stick may well have been inscribed with the name Thorstein, and another with the name Einar.
(10) Rockets designed for accurate propulsive landings would also increase the ability of research missions, like Esa’s Rosetta comet mission or Nasa’s Mars rovers, to land safely in remote places – if not necessarily to return.
(11) Frigo tells me that his aim is to create for a future audience "some kind of a Rosetta Stone of this time, where different aspects of a person's life, recorded with different media, can be compared and interpreted."
(12) Like Gaia, like Sentinel, Rosetta is the climax of decades of meticulous partnership.
(13) Before that, grim coming-of-age story Rosetta gave them their first gold, as well as their international breakthrough, in 1999.
(14) The Dardennes have won the Palme d'Or at Cannes twice: in 1999 for their debut film, Rosetta , and in 2005 for L'Enfant .
(15) Donavan Whyte, vice-president of education for Rosetta Stone, which produces language learning software, said the UK's lack of foreign language speakers would only be tackled if students were taught languages from an earlier age.
(16) But if ever there were men to do it, those men would be Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, the Belgian brothers and Cannes perennials who previously triumphed with Rosetta in 1999 and in 2005 with The Child.
(17) Elsewhere, the Rosetta Stone at the British Museum is fundamentally important to our understanding of archaeology and ancient cultures.
(18) "Egypt is a graveyard for occupiers," observes Ramadan el-Atr, a fruit farmer near the antiquated town of Rosetta, where authorities have contracted a Chinese company to build a huge wall of concrete blocks in the ocean to try to save any more land from melting away.
(19) As for the Rosetta Stone that his troops took from Egypt, the British restored it – to London.
(20) The legislation is being drafted to apply to "objects stolen between 1933 and 1945 by the Nazi regime" to avoid bids to repatriate disputed artefacts such as the Parthenon sculptures, Rosetta stone, Benin bronzes and Lewis chessmen.
