(7) Alkaline ribonuclease (pH optimum 7.6) was isolated from rye (Secale cereale L) germ cytosol and partially purified; the preparation was devoid of other nucleolytic activities.
(8) Specific anti-wheat, rye and barley flour IgE antibodies were found by RAST.

(13) The alcohol-soluble (prolamin) storage proteins of barley, wheat and rye vary in their structures, but all have two features in common: the presence of distinct structural domains differing in amino acid compositions, and of repeats within one of these domains.
(14) Numbers of various inflammatory cells (neutrophils, eosinophils, lymphocytes, and monocytes) found in conjunctival scrapings were quantified and correlated with the clinical profile, total serum IgE, and serum IgE to Rye I antigen.
(15) Changes in IgE to oak, elm, box elder, AgE, and rye grass group I were minimal.
(16) Fruit, wheat, rye and beet fibre were studied in isoenergetic meals for NIDD patients and healthy volunteers.
(17) Its absence in rye shows that condensed rDNA need not be present in active plant nucleoli.
(18) The late author of The Catcher in the Rye, notoriously protective of his privacy, published nothing after the release of his story Hapworth 16, 1924 in the New Yorker, in 1965.
(19) The antibodies were tested against whole wheat gliadin and its alpha, beta, gamma, and omega subfractions, and the prolamins of rye, barley, oats, maize, millet, rice, and sorghum.
(20) It appears that screening for an IgE-mediated allergy can be performed with a limited number of skin tests (rye grass, timothy, birch, house dust mite and cat).

(5) She frequently talks about herself as an object of wry or amused discovery.
(6) It was described as the "Twitter revolution" , but almost a year on from Iran's disputed presidential elections, during which the use of social media by the opposition movement made headlines around the world, such claims prompt wry smiles from seasoned observers.

(8) Franzen did seem to have a certain sense of humour about himself, and in person has a wry, awkward charm.
(9) Coal plants are the most polluting of all power stations and the World Resources Institute (WRI) identified 1,200 coal plants in planning across 59 countries, with about three-quarters in China and India.
(10) The cover art for the Cranberries' Bury the Hatchet (1999) was an evocation of paranoia – a giant eye bearing down on a crouching figure – that did neither band nor artist many favours; his image for Muse's Black Holes and Revelations (2006) amounted to a thin revival of his work for the Floyd that, if you were being generous, suggested a wry comment on that band's unconvincing attempts to revive the excesses of 1970s progressive rock.
