(17) In the cervical enlargement of the rat spinal cord, fluoride-resistant acid phosphatase (FRAP) occurs in most of the small dark sinuous primary afferent central terminals (CI-terminals) of type I-synaptic glomeruli of lamina II and is lacking in the large light roundish primary afferent CII-terminals of type II-glomeruli.
(18) Degeneration of the tactile cells in epithelium of the cat sinuous hairs after sectioning the infraorbital nerve manifests itself as cytoplasmic vacuolization and induration with electron opaque bodies in it, changes in nuclear configuration and in chromatin density.
(19) The cytoplasm of macrophages gives only short, somewhat sinuous processes.
(20) Selective arteriography of the coeliac trunk showed extremely sinuous intra-hepatic arteries in 3 of these cases, and obstruction of the portal vein, in one case.
(v. i.) To breathe.
(n.) A slender stalk or blade in vegetation; as, a spire grass or of wheat.
(n.) A tapering body that shoots up or out to a point in a conical or pyramidal form. Specifically (Arch.), the roof of a tower when of a pyramidal form and high in proportion to its width; also, the pyramidal or aspiring termination of a tower which can not be said to have a roof, such as that of Strasburg cathedral; the tapering part of a steeple, or the steeple itself.
(n.) A tube or fuse for communicating fire to the chargen in blasting.
(n.) The top, or uppermost point, of anything; the summit.
(v. i.) To shoot forth, or up in, or as if in, a spire.
(n.) A spiral; a curl; a whorl; a twist.
(n.) The part of a spiral generated in one revolution of the straight line about the pole. See Spiral, n.

(2) One of the few regulations that has been spelt out in black and white is the maximum height limit – so planes don’t have to weave between spires on their way to and from City Airport, five miles to the east.
(3) The medieval church spires of rural England are to bring superfast broadband to the remotest of dwellings, with the Church of England offering their use as communication towers.
(4) San Andreas is a state of contrasts and extraordinary detail, there is always some interesting new nook to chance on, some breathtaking previously unexperienced view across the hills toward the capitalist spires of downtown.
(5) Behold "The Spire", a 398ft needle penetrating the sky; symbol of Dublin's thrusting modernity (or, cynics suggest, the grip heroin holds on some parts of the city).
(6) It’s a factor, but it wouldn’t be correct to say they died as a consequence of the mismanagement.” Miller also worked at Spire Gatwick Park hospital in Horley, Surrey.
(7) With permissions already granted for many more towers, from the Scalpel to the Can of Ham and a monstrous “Gotham City” mega-block by Make, we can say goodbye to a skyline of individual spires, between which you might occasionally glimpse the sky.
(8) North American marine archaeogastropods are mainly equidimensional but with a few disk-like forms and a very few high-spired ones, marine mesogastropods are mainly high-spired but with disk-like forms, neogastropods high-spired, and relevant euthyneurans sharply bimodal, like the stylommatophorans.
(9) When the sun made an appearance mid-morning, it threw a spotlight on the spire of the Saint-Michel basilica and the honey-coloured buildings that face the sweeping curve of the broad river.
(10) JJ Route 100, Vermont All your picture-postcard impressions of rural New England – village greens, white-steepled wooden church spires and roadside diners – can be enjoyed along Vermont's Route 100, which runs the length of the Green Mountains.
(11) Richard Jones, H5's chief executive and former commercial director of Spire Healthcare, told MPs gathered for its launch that, despite the government protecting healthcare from funding cuts, in the long-term high quality healthcare for all cannot be funded by taxes alone.
(12) However, last year it won an Independent Healthcare Award for Public Private Partnerships, for work on a successful partnership with the NHS in Cumbria and Lancashire which also involved Spire Healthcare and Abbey Hospitals.
(13) I live in the northern suburbs of the city, where from my backyard I can see the spires of Catholic and Orthodox churches, the minaret of a mosque.
(14) Its square tower and light resembling a short spire is fine enough to grace any village in the land.
(15) The Breakthrough Centre in Elstree, a joint venture between CancerPartners UK and Spire Bushey Hospital, provides chemotherapy and radiotherapy services, with Elstree Cancer Centre offering patients treatment options.
(16) Its director, John Crisp, said: “Spire suspended Mr Miller in December 2013 as soon as the trust notified us of their investigation into Mr Miller and he has not undertaken any surgery or held clinics at our hospital since.
(17) From the raucous taverns of the Shire to the dreaming spires of Gondor, there will be palpable relief today.
(18) "Following an audit of our members, which includes data on thousands of patients from leading groups including Transform, The Harley Medical Group, Spire Healthcare, BMI Hospitals and The Hospital Group, we can confirm that the average rupture rates reported for PIP implants is within the industry standard of 1%-2%."
(19) It is suggested that close location of chains and their zonal distribution by the section of helix spire forming sublicon wall, should provide the formation of stereohomogenous and complementary successions of biomonomers of different clases.
(20) It is a huge building site now, as the single glass-clad spire of the new One World Trade Centre climbs a little higher into the sky each day.
