(1) However, as other patients who lived at the periphery of the Valserine valley do not appear to be related to any patients living in the valley, and because there has been considerable immigration into the valley, a number of hypotheses to explain the distribution of the disease in the region remain possible.

(6) Complementarity determining regions (CDR) are conserved to different extents, with the first CDR region in all family members being among the most conserved segments of the molecule.
(7) The invaginations were classified into four easily recognized types: regular, chunky, filigree, and ridge (present only in axon hillock regions).
(8) Twelve families with Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) were studied by linkage analysis using 10 polymorphic marker loci from the X-chromosome pericentromeric region.
(9) Reiteration VII (within protein coding regions of genes US10 and US11) and reiteration IV (within introns of genes US1 and US12) were stable between the isolates (group 1).
(10) In the second approach, attachment sites of DTPA groups were directed away from the active region of the molecule by having fragment E1,2 bound in complex, with its active sites protected during the derivatization.
(11) When compared with lissencephalic species, a great horizontal fibrillary system (which is vertically arranged in gyral regions) was observed in convoluted brains.
(12) At the fepB operator, a 31 base-pair Fur-protected region was identified, corresponding to positions -19 to +12 with respect to the transcriptional start site.
(13) Three overlapping clones, spanning a total of 19 kb of the human SC gene, including 3 kb of the 5' flanking region, were characterized.
(14) We have examined overlapping octapeptides from the kappa IIIb light chain variable region and show that some framework peptides have the ability to bind aggregated IgG.
(15) Therefore, neither of these two regions of the Tat protein appear to be discrete activation domains.
(16) Chromatographic maps of DNA adducts demonstrated unique patterns of DNA adducts for each of the regions.
(17) Thus, human bronchial epithelial cells can express the IL-8 gene, with expression in response to the inflammatory mediator TNF regulated mainly at the transcriptional level, and with elements within the 5'-flanking region of the gene that are directly or indirectly modulated by the TNF signal.
(18) It is the only fully-fledged casino to open in the region, outside Lebanon.
(19) The regional distribution of beta-adrenoceptor subtypes was found to be similar to that seen in the rat brain.
(20) Former Regional director for Latin American Caribbean and Middle East, Save the Children.
(n.) A group intermediate in importance between an order and a subclass.
(1) Chromatin of 14 species of fish referring to nine families of the percoid fish superorder includes protamines similar to salmin, a typical protamine of salmon.
(2) The usage as well as some of the known family chemical characteristics of Xhosa and Zulu traditional medicinal plants belonging to various families of the superorder Liliiflorae are related to some of the clinical effects of Xhosa medicine observed by Solleder in 1972.
(3) The superorder Archonta has been hypothesized to include primates, tree shrews, bats, and flying lemurs as descendants of a common ancestor.
(4) Also in congruence with other recent molecular evidence, IRBP sequences do not support the view of a superorder Archonta that includes Chiroptera along with Dermoptera (flying lemur), Scandentia (tree shrew), and Primates.
(5) The hemoglobin of Trichechus inunguis is compared with those of Elephas maximus, Loxodonta africana, and Procavia habessinica and the monophyletic origin of the superorder Paenungulata is discussed.
(6) The relationships between the squalomorphs and other superorders of sharks and the relationships between the different orders within the squalomorphs are a matter of debate.
(7) This is particularly true for the superorder Squalomorphii.
(8) Here, we report a molecular phylogeny for a little known member of this superorder, the genus Echinorhinus.
(9) Alpha = 0.56 for the class of cartilaginous fishes, and for the superorder of sharks and skates alpha = 0.54 and 0.61, accordingly.
(10) Sequence comparison of the northern pike growth hormone gene to other known growth hormone genes revealed similarities closest to other members of the superorder Protacanthopterygii, which includes the Salmonidae family (i.e., salmon and trout).
(11) The superorder Elopomorpha (orders Anguilliformes, Elopiformes and Notacanthiformes) is characterized by the presence of a unique larval stage termed the leptocephalus.
(12) Chromatin of three species from squid superorder referring to Cephalopoda includes gametones -- proteins differing from histones and protamines both in the electrophoretic mobility and amino acidic composition (75% mol.
(13) Hesslerella shermani is described as the oldest representative of the crustacean superorder Peracarida, order Isopoda, suborder Phreatoicidea.
(14) Results obtained by parsimony analysis provide evidence for this grouping--and thus support for the genealogical validity of Simpson's superorder Paenungulata, which contains as the extant orders Proboscidea, Sirenia, and Hyracoidea.
