Anomer approach is to develop contingency plans--smaller or shorter studies--when funding is not adequate for the optimal design, but this will sacrifice statistical power.
These include tests for anomer ratio (that is, the proportions of alpha-lactose and beta-lactose--see sidebar), tests for related sugars, (glucose and galactose), tests for residual proteins or protein fragments and measurement of amorphous lactose.
In one small area the vanadinite crystals were found perched on micro-bladed deep red mottramite, while in anomer area the pale orange mottramite forms crusts (molds) that cover vanadinite and calcite crystals.
Anomer group of companies reported weaknesses related to shipping terms and the passage of title (10 companies).
The two conformations of glucose are called anomers. There is the alpha ([alpha]) anomer and the beta ([beta]) anomer, and the difference between them has tremendous significance in animal nutrition.
Edward first suggested that dipole cancellation favors the axial anomer. In the axial anomer, the C-X dipole and the C-O dipole of the C-O-C moiety partially cancel, while in the equatorial anomer they do not.
To be able to observe the anomer proton signals of the [H-NMR.sup.1] spectrum of Ths-2, [D.sub.2]O was added to the [Me.sub.2]SO-[d.sub.6] solvent to eliminate the interfering hydroxy proton peaks (Kim et al.
The crystalline form is B-D-fructopyranose, the sweetest anomer of fructose.
Selective Incisincision of the [alpha]-N5-methyl-formamidopyrimidine anomer by Escherichia coli endonuclease.
Further the methanolysis of 5 produced a fatty acid methyl ester, an aliphatic chain base and a mixture of - and AY- anomer of methyl glucoside.
Con A preferentially binds the alpha anomer and the two anomers were bound in different conformations.
These sugars were also confirmed by the retention time of their TMS ether with the standards and D-galactose (retention time of a- anomer 3.0 AY-anomer 5.2 min).
