anneal

[ə′nēl]
(engineering)
To treat a metal, alloy, or glass with heat and then cool to remove internal stresses and to make the material less brittle. Also known as temper.
(genetics)
To recombine strands of complementary deoxyribonucleic acid that were separated by heating or other means of denaturation.

anneal

To take the brittleness out of metal, plastic or certain carbon composites. Performed in the preparation of new products or in their restoration, annealing is accomplished via a heat treating process.

(See Figure 2d, focusing just on the lower strand from 2c.) This makes the nascent strand ssDNA, allowing the opposing primer (Primer l in Figure 2c) to anneal, and DNA polymerase to again start strand synthesis.
(16) for the specimen annealed at 350 K, together with a fit to the data.
Figures 7 and 8 show values for [bar.P.sub.1st] and [bar.Q.sub.1st], respectively, determined with the different methods of data analysis for the specimens annealed at 300 K, 330 K, 350 K, 375 K, and 500 K.
For the specimen annealed at 350 K, a value of about 15 nm is obtained (see Fig.
We'll insert bland-finished parts, and when they exit, they are bright annealed. But we don't use hydrogen on titanium."
The H stands for hybrid, and this enzymatic activity degrades away the RNA pair of annealed DNA-RNA hybrids.
g) Each of the transcript molecules can now be annealed to by the reverse primer, providing a starting point for M-MLV RT to reverse transcribe and make a DNA copy of the transcript.
i) This leaves a single-stranded DNA target copy, which can be annealed to by the T7-tagged primer.
After the chosen annealing time, the annealed samples were treated in one of the two ways and transferred to the Hitachi S4700 microscope for imaging.
As a prelude to interpreting images of microstructure development with time and temperature of annealing, it is appropriate to document the microstructure of frozen coatings of suspension that were neither freeze-dried nor annealed, and of frozen coatings that were partially and fully freeze-dried, without annealing.
Freeze-dried coatings of model latex ML233 were annealed at temperatures of 20, 30, 40, and 50[degrees]C for 3 h to see how the annealing temperature influences the extent of deformation of the particles in that time, and the concomitant compaction and coalescence.
