This already happened for the mixture of the anionic sodium oleate (NaOA) and cationic octyl trimethylammonium bromide (OTAB), which the formation of threadlike
micelle took place at 70/30NaOA/OTAB 3 wt% ratio (NaOA tail have 10 carbon atoms more than that of OTAB) .
fiber that is less than one-quarter the thickness of a human hair will contain tens of millions of nanotubes packed side by side.
For the shearing conditions studied, we do not see the plateau associated with saturation in the threadlike
precursors reported in the literature (29).
When a neuron is activated, a message travels as an electrical impulse down the neuron's threadlike
axon toward a synapse (space between neurons).
Here are two species so closely intertwined that, as in the case of the cyanobacteria living within fungi, they are considered to be one organism: the algae engage in photosynthesis, using sunlight to turn simple sugars into more complex compounds that can be used by both species, while the surrounding fungus draws on its extensive system of threadlike
hyphae to bring a wider range of minerals to the algal cells than they could access by themselves.
Modification of rhizosphere is by (i) root extension by associations with root symbiotic fungi, the arbucular mycorrhizae fungi (AMF) forming additional threadlike
root extensions, the mycelia, that absorb more P than non-mycorrhizal plants; (ii) modification by secretion of chelating agents by mycorrhizal roots in calcareous soils and in acid soils to release some bioavailable P; (iii) modification by phosphates enzymes at mycorhizosphere to contribute to mobilization of organic P; (iv) mycorrhizae are particularly more efficient in high-P-fixing soils and the modification is by acidification, through increased proton efflux and pCO2 enhancement; and (v) modification by P-solubilizing rhizobacteria.
Seta is a kind of threadlike
villus with spatulate end (Peressadko & Gorb, 2004).
Where moist wood chips and soil unite, these fungi use enzymes to access nutrients in the wood, which is their energy source for the growth of threadlike
, white hyphae.
LF is caused by threadlike
parasites and is transmitted by mosquitoes.
A few years ago, pea tendrils, the delicate, threadlike
tips of the plant - and a common ingredient in Asian cooking - became a smashing success with gourmets.
It wasn't much, just a threadlike
strand on the burp cloth, but it sent me into a panic.
The oblong smooth, with a slimy mass of outercoating Ovary, tapering into the threadlike
