(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.
(a.) Sensory; as, the sensor nerves.
(1) Different measurements were repeated for five sensors.
(2) A pressure sensor in the patient line prevents excessive inflow and outflow pressures by stopping the inflow or outflow pump respectively.
(3) As an inspiratory monitor in the curarized patient, the sensor responds quantitatively to persisting spontaneous tidal volumes of 1 ml.
(4) You're more likely to awake refreshed, because inside your mattress there's a special sensor that monitors your sleeping rhythms, determining precisely when to wake you so as not to interrupt an REM cycle.
(5) Enzyme sensors requiring reagent and controlled pH to detect substrate at non-steady-state conditions are described.
(6) After every third inhalation trial and after the injection the rats were placed on a movement sensor for 3 min.
(7) During the surgery for the purpose of removal of the tumor, needle type-O2 sensors were inserted into femoral artery and in brain tumor to measure PaO2 and intratumoral O2 pressure.
(8) During the measurement, the values of previously selected features of sensor output signal are determined; then they serve as the input data for computation of concentrations of glucose and of interfering substances.
(9) Efforts to obtain long term, reliable direct measurements of blood pressures have not been successful because of blood clotting impairing the function of sensors, baseline drift, artifacts on measurements, and health hazard-related catheterization.
(10) The algorithm is an improvement over the sphere model in that it considers two distinct surfaces: an ellipsoid, to model the region of the skull on which the sensors are placed, and a sphere as the medium in which the current dipole model is considered.
(11) An electromagnetic flow sensor was placed around the middle uterine artery and electromyogram electrodes were attached to the uterus.
(12) This sensor has been used in flow injection to determine oxalate, alkylamines, and NADH.
(13) When the glass pH electrode data were above 5.1, the pH sensor tended to show lower pH values than glass pH electrode.
(14) The sensor's hysteresis is about 8 percent at 40 degrees Celsius (C) and 12 percent at 20 degrees C. The sensor has a maximal nonlinearity of 8 percent and a worst-case nonrepeatibility of 7 percent.
(15) All ports were successfully placed under local anesthesia, with catheter tip location determined by an electronic sensor wand.
(16) The GCN4 protein mediates the response of the transcriptional apparatus to the environmental signal 'amino acid limitation', while PHO2 seems to be the phosphate sensor that adjusts the response to the availability of phosphate precursors.
(17) The non-specific sensor response may be reduced by a combination of biologic sensors.
(18) These data imply that GTP-binding proteins (G-proteins) are not involved in coupling the voltage sensors to Ca2+ release in skeletal muscle.
