(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.
(v. t.) To shoot, as the seed of a plant; to germinate; to push out new shoots; hence, to grow like shoots of plants.

(v. t.) To deprive of sprouts; as, to sprout potatoes.
(v. i.) The shoot of a plant; a shoot from the seed, from the stump, or from the root or tuber, of a plant or tree; more rarely, a shoot from the stem of a plant, or the end of a branch.

(1) Dietary factors affect intestinal P450s markedly--iron restriction rapidly decreased intestinal P450 to beneath detectable values; selenium deficiency acted similarly but was less effective; Brussels sprouts increased intestinal AHH activity 9.8-fold, ECOD activity 3.2-fold, and P450 1.9-fold; fried meat and dietary fat significantly increased intestinal EROD activity; a vitamin A-deficient diet increased, and a vitamin A-rich diet decreased intestinal P450 activities; and excess cholesterol in the diet increased intestinal P450 activity.
(2) Cell Biol., 101:1990-1998), the fetal antigen is specifically associated with regions of neuronal sprouting and, therefore, can be used as a molecular marker of neurite growth.
(3) Histological examination showed that in many cases these terminal sprouts appeared to reinnervate abandoned junctional sites on adjacent denervated fibers.
(4) Cytokines may be involved in stimulation of dystrophic neuritic sprouting, neuronal death, and amyloid deposition noted in the brains of Alzheimer's disease patients.
(5) This finding suggested that in addition to growing within the host, xenogeneic transplants may also stimulate a compensatory sprouting response from the host.
(6) These results suggest that purified laminin can facilitate and guide process outgrowth of 5-HT, DA and NE neurons during early developmental stage, but does not induce sprouting on these same fiber types in the adult brain.
(7) The vascular system develops during embryonic development by at least two distinct processes; vasculogenesis is the development of blood vessels from in situ differentiating angioblasts and angiogenesis is the sprouting of capillaries from pre-existing vessels.
(8) Finally, using a newly developed paradigm for examining the composition of regenerating axons by axonal transport, we determined that significant amounts of the 57 kDa neuronal IF protein were conveyed into the regrowing axonal sprouts of DRG neurons.
(9) mRNA was prepared from muscle at different times after denervation: a maximal increase was obtained already after 1 day, consistent with an involvement in sprouting.
(10) Thus vascular sprouting and proliferation of viable tumor cells is confined to basal regions of the tumor.

(14) The nucleoside phosphotransferase from malt sprouts contains one Mg2 per dimeric enzyme molecule.
(15) The contrasting effects on sprouting and the eventual quality of repair of mechanically lesioned nerves have suggested a mechanism whereby sprouting may regulate perikaryal adjustments to injury.
(16) Neurotoxin lesioning of 5-HT fibers selectively induced the homotypic collateral sprouting of spared 5-HT fibers in the hippocampus.
(17) In control rats, a similar sprouting reaction occurred, but the maximal distance of elongation rarely exceeded 1 mm.
(18) After differentiation, both Ewing's and neural lines developed neuritic processes with varicosities and little arborization, except for the initially undifferentiated Ewing's line (A4573) which displayed extensive lateral sprouting from neuritic processes after differentiation.
