(19) Stimulation of membrane ruffling is one of the first events induced by addition of growth factors to quiescent cultures.
(20) Recovery of enzyme was much more rapid in confluent quiescent monolayers of endothelial cells than in dividing cultures.
(n.) Slowness; tardiness.
(n.) Disinclination to action or labor; sluggishness; laziness; idleness.
(n.) Any one of several species of arboreal edentates constituting the family Bradypodidae, and the suborder Tardigrada. They have long exserted limbs and long prehensile claws. Both jaws are furnished with teeth (see Illust. of Edentata), and the ears and tail are rudimentary. They inhabit South and Central America and Mexico.
(v. i.) To be idle.
(1) Although the retinal organization differs from that of the closely related three-toed sloth, the presumed function of retinal specializations in both species is to guide limb movements by permitting visualization of the branch along which the animal is climbing.
(2) Whenever anyone ascribes some inherent characteristic – of sloth or unwillingness – to an entire race, even if it is your own, you should smell a rat.
(3) The low functional residual capacity lung density in the sloth was attributable to unusually large alveoli.
(4) Over the course of this series, themes of unemployment, poor grooming and sloth emerge, all of which are qualities found in our first loser, Kris.
(5) Nick Offerman, the comic he-man of Parks and Recreation, stars as Ignatius J Reilly, a gluttonous and concupiscent layabout, slothfully adrift in New Orleans.
(6) Sloths are very responsive to epinephrine and norepinephrine; i.v.
(7) Updated at 9.20pm BST 9.01pm BST A second Republican Senate candidate has distanced himself from Mitt Romney 's discourse on the miserable sloth and entitled arrogance of 47% of Americans: Sen. Scott Brown, facing a tough fight in left-leaning Massachusetts, emails The Hill to say Romney's Randian world view of producers-versus-parasites is not his: That’s not the way I view the world.
(8) The working class is redivided into the hard-working taxpayer and the slothful undeserving poor, with the former subsumed into the "people", the latter into its other.
(9) Tilting sloths anesthetized with chloralose from erect to supine or supine to erect produced little or no effect on heart rate.
(10) Sloth fat cells showed a very low glucose oxidation to 14CO2 and incorporation into total lipids.
(11) Acute, fatal infections with this parasite are also recorded in a number of captive "coatimundis", Nasua narica (Carnivora: Procyonidae) and a sloth, Bradypus tridactylus (Edentata).
(12) The cellular composition and relative frequency of the occurrence of pancreatic endocrine cells were studied immunohistochemically in a primitive eutherian and arboreal folivore, the three-toed sloth, since previous histochemical and ultrastructural studies on the endocrine pancreas of the sloth have detected only a single islet cell type, the A cell.
(13) The intestinal of the 3-toed sloth, Bradypus tridactylus, was studied macroscopically, with light microscope and with histochemical methods for mucosubstances.
(14) 8.50pm BST 48 min: Dortmund have started with the same zip that they started the first half - and Bayern with the same sloth.
(15) Leishmania (Viannia) shawi Lainson, Braga, de Souza, Póvoa, Ishikawa & Silveira, 1989, was originally recorded from monkeys (Cebus apella and Chiropotes satanas), sloths (Choloepus didactylus and Bradypus tridactylus) and coatis (Nasua nasua) and the sandfly, Lutzomyia whitmani.
(16) Rincón lists his most significant findings with the contagious enthusiasm of a child reciting the cast of the Ice Age movies: the giant femur of a six-tonne mastodon, a giant ground sloth, a 10-ft pelican, caimans the size of buses and the almost intact skull of a sabre-toothed tiger.
(17) Like a stern housekeeper, he has roamed from floor to floor in government buildings, casting disapproving glances at the litter, the sloth and the lack of discipline.

(19) A s a fashion accessory, the beard occupies the sweet spot where sloth meets affectation – that’s why I’ve got one – although you couldn’t really call facial hair fashionable any more.
