ACID

(Atomic, Consistent, Isolated, Durable) The properties of a transaction in a well-designed database management system (DBMS). The transaction must be ATOMIC (all updating tasks must be completed or nothing is done), CONSISTENT (it cannot leave the database in a state that violates any integrity rules), ISOLATED (remain invisible to other operations until completed) and DURABLE (will complete or be reversed if the system fails in the interim).

Caption: FIGURE 4: Urinary calcium and renal net acid excretion were positively correlated (r = 0.57, p = 0.03) with AA-MF and GMP-MF, n = 14 from 7 participants.
Thus, the antihyperuricemic effects of the CC12 mixture may be due, at least in part, to its inhibitory effects on XOD activity, although further study is necessary to determine its effects on renal uric acid excretion. Based on these results, we propose that the CC12 mixture exerts beneficial effects on hyperuricemia and may be useful in the treatment of hyperuricemia.
There results may demonstrate that riparoside B and timosaponin J possess potent uricosuric effect in hyperuricemic mice only through decreasing renal mURAT1, but not mGLUT9 and mOTA1, which are attributable to the enhancement of uric acid excretion. It has been reported that protein levels of mURAT1, mGLUT9 and mOTA1 are associated with renal uric acid excretion (Enomoto and Endou 2005; Eraly et al., 2008; Habu et al., 2003; Preitner et al., 2009).

"The results of this study also showed that soy protein lowered non-HDL through a mechanism that does not involve increased bile acid excretion, but some yet to be determined mechanism," said Kevin Maki, lead author of the study.
inunguis urine presented in this study may serve as a reference in urinalysis diagnosis in captive Amazonian manatees, and as comparative data for future research in uric acid excretion in animal urine.
Patients with CIKD--who most often die from heart disease--often experience hyperuricemia because of decreased uric acid excretion in the urine.
Induction of forced swim stress to the animals produced a significant increase in VMA and decrease in ascorbic acid excretion compared with their respective basal excretion in normal condition.
Eat a standard modern diet, and your kidneys again assume the burden, this time with an increase in net acid excretion.
In calcareous soils, oxalic acid excretion leads to dissolution of CaC[O.sub.3] and precipitation of Ca-oxalate in the zone of plant roots.
