(1) In addition, DDT blocked succinate dehydrogenase and the cytochrome b-c span of the electron transport chain, which also secondarily reduced ATP synthesis.
(2) The extent of the infectious process was limited, however, because the life span of the cultures was not significantly shortened, the yields of infectious virus per immunofluorescent cell were at all times low, and most infected cells contained only a few well-delineated small masses of antigen, suggestive of an abortive infection.

(6) These data indicate that the development of HCC in HBV-negative alcoholics with cirrhosis occurs in relation to the development of macronodules and loss of liver weight, most likely along with the prolongation of the life span.
(7) We then used synthetic peptides spanning the active fragment to identify the primary sequence of the adhesive site as Leu-Arg-Glu (LRE): neurons attach to an immobilized LRE-containing peptide, and soluble LRE blocks attachment of neurons to the s-laminin fragment.
(8) After cessation of exposures, HEVal was lost faster than predicted by the normal erythrocyte life span alone.
(9) The antibiotic was effective against Gram-positive bacteria, fungi and yeasts, and prolonged the life span of mice bearing Ehrlich ascites carcinoma.

(11) Analysis of mRNA life span by using actinomycin D demonstrates that PPET-1 mRNA has a short intracellular half-life of about 15 min and is superinduced by cycloheximide.
(12) Respiration-related neurons were classified with respect to the correlation of their activity with the activity of the phrenic nerve: phase-bound inspiratory (I) and expiratory (E) neurones and phase-spanning expiratory-inspiratory and inspiratory-expiratory neurones were discriminated.
(13) The cytoplasmic and membrane spanning domains of galactosyltransferase were found to be sufficient to retain all of the hybrid invariant chain in trans Golgi cisternae as judged by indirect immunofluorescence, treatment with brefeldin A and immuno-electron microscopy.
(14) Selection limits for scutellar bristles in lines M and M2 were equal to or greater than the most extreme reported in the literature.-The probit span of the canalised 4 bristle class decreased in each selection line as the mean scutellar bristle number increased, and increased again in the relaxed lines as the mean bristle number decreased.
(15) The predicted yeast enzyme contains at least four potential membrane-spanning regions and several shorter hydrophobic regions that align exactly with similar sequences in the rat liver protein.
(16) cDNA was prepared by reverse transcription of peripheral blood mRNA and amplified by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using primers corresponding to sequences 400 bp apart on the cDNA, spanning the last three exons (X, Y, Z) of the beta-Sp gene.
(17) The biologically active unit spans about 16 kilobase pairs (kbp) and is composed of seven exons and six introns.
(18) The present study extended this effort to a noninstitutionalized life-span sample of males and females in six age groups (fourteen to ninety-four).
(19) This altered region spans the normal site of autocatalytic proteolysis that occurs at the same time as (enzymatic) activation of prochymosin at acidic pH.
(20) Moreover, no increase in cAMP can be detected over an extended time span.

(1) Many elements of the set had been spun out of background glimpses from the film, references you'd only register after an unhealthy number of viewings.
(2) CheY reduced the bias (the fraction of time that cells spun counterclockwise) in either case.
(3) SPUN surveillance may prove too costly to be practical for general application, but it can serve as a means to identify needy children and estimate the prevalence of undernutrition in specific high-risk populations.
(4) Time Inc, the largest magazine publisher in the US with titles including Time, Sports Illustrated and Marie Claire, was spun off last month as a corporate manoeuvre to protect Time Warner from the continuing decline in the publishing sector.
(5) Clinton’s decision to drive rather than fly to Iowa, a highly unusual move for a presidential candidate – and one that does not come without risks – is being spun by her campaign as an idea that Clinton casually came up with herself.
(6) If any of them is neglected or isolated from the rest, the whole will be impoverished-the student will suffocate in disconnected, empirical facts; fanciful theories will be spun from tenuous evidence; well established theory will be neglected by the practitioner; the best-intentioned schemes will have disastrous long-term consequences.
(7) And that it spun from there into something much, much more violent.
(8) Peripheral venous spun hematocrit was measured between 2 and 4 hours of age.
(9) However, when the intracellular pH was lowered to 6.6 or below, envelopes that spun CW stopped rotating, while envelopes that spun CCW continued to rotate.
(10) The challenger bank, which spun out of Lloyds Banking Group and floated in June, is attempting to expand its loan book to match its cost base, but analysts fear this could hit its margins.
(11) However, whether or not she realised it at the time, Denise was also at the centre of an increasingly sophisticated web being spun by lawyers and aides on her husband's payroll.
(12) While all my other questions have been answered, albeit halfheartedly, this one was not fudged or spun or mangled, but simply ignored.
(13) Peripheral swelling was less than central for both lathe cut- and spun cast-type lenses.
(14) The enzymatic in-vitro-hydrolysis results altogether in a comparable availability of the amino acids between spun protein fibers and sunflower seed globulin isolates.
(15) But the gun laws themselves are just the collateral damage of a spun-out legislature that has become one of the most successful case studies for ALEC's push to enact pro-business, pro-conservative legislation across the country.
(16) The TSB prospectus shows that Lloyds is also helping the newly spun-off bank - which has been back on the high streets since September - to become more profitable by handing over an extra £3.4bn of loans, which are expected to generate £230m of additional profit by 2017.
(17) Oxygen-contaminated, melt-spun, binary Ti-Si alloys have been examined by using transmission electron microscopy.
(18) How Richard Spencer's home town weathered a neo-Nazi 'troll storm' Read more The Daily Stormer, which takes a millennial, meme-driven approach to racism, misogyny and virulent antisemitism, also spun-off 31 active “real-life, on-the-ground clubs” across the country, the law center analysts found.
