[…] of the respondents’ preferences being either aural (a) or kinesthetic (k). among the trimodal learning styles, vak was the most preferred, which is in contrast to the al-saud study which found the ark modality to be the most preferred., in terms of gender preferences, female dental students showed a significantly higher preference for bimodal learning styles compared to their male […]

[…] rna was isolated at 2, 6, 24, and 48 hpi. the medium was removed and the bmdm were lysed with 2.5 ml trizol reagent (invitrogen) for 20 min to ensure mycobacterial inactivation. rna was extracted at the ark-genomics facility by following the manufacturer's instructions. the mrna was purified and fractionated to generate fragments with a median size of 180 to 210 nucleotides. these fragments […]

[…] ()., although activity of sod in oysters remained unaffected by salinity, activity of cat decreased with decreasing salinity. in contrast, activities of sod and cat in gills and digestive gland of the ark shell scapharca broughtonii and in whole-tissues of clams ruditapes spp. increase in response to low salinity (; ). discrepancies among studies may reflect differences in duration […]

[…] deletion of akl1, or overexpression of akl1 under the mal2 promoter, had no detectable impact on growth at 37°c (supplementary figure )., based on sequence homology, c. albicans akl1 is related to the ark/prk family of kinases (smythe and ayscough, ), and is more distantly related to the polo-like kinases (cdc5). the s. cerevisiae genome contains two ark/prk homologs and a single akl1 homolog, […]
