Three preliminary melting curve analyses showed that this assay was effective in discriminating between

In its brief, TEI acknowledged that the Supreme Court had previously invoked the Commerce Clause to invalidate a number of state taxing schemes that unreasonably burdened interstate commerce by discriminating between

In addition to discriminating between
compounds that are hepatotoxic and ones that are not, their predictive models were in most cases also able to predict what kind of toxicant the animals had been exposed to--a direct-acting one that causes damage itself, a cholestatic one that interferes with bile, or a steatotic one that drives buildup of flat in the liver.
(Barcelona, Spain) has patented a method for determinating cytokine receptor, especially growth hormone receptor (GHR), activation, by the use of an antibody capable of discriminating between
an activated and an inactive cytokine receptor conformation, especially GHR or growth hormone binding protein (GHBP) conformation, the method comprising: contacting the antibody and the cytokine receptor to form a complex, contacting a candidate ligand to the complex, measuring the antibody binding to inactive cytokine receptor and thereby discriminating between
an activated and an inactive conformation.
However, such a definition will be of no use in discriminating between a Ford and a Toyota.
The following properties are useful for discriminating between virus species (13): genome sequence relatedness, natural host range, cell and tissue tropism, pathogenicity and cytopathology, mode of transmission, physicochemical properties, and antigenic properties.
