  • It is metabolically less expensive to be larger in body size.
  • Since they are metabolically active cells, their cytoplasm is full of a series of organelles.
  • This indicates that the inferior colliculus is metabolically more active than many other parts of the brain.
  • For neurons, it is metabolically costly to make long connections, and the trade-off of connection distance is time.
  • Initially, a great deal of carbon dioxide gas may be given off, as carbon is metabolically "burned." Cited from Organic Gardener's Composting, by Steve Solomon
  • The two regions are metabolically overactive in treatment resistant major depression.
  • This city is metabolically tied to a surrounding hinterland of agricultural and ecological resources.
  • This trade-off has likely developed by evolution as the cuticular compounds are metabolically expensive to produce so larger colonies may not be able to support this mechanism.
  • Although the process of ecdysis is metabolically risky and expensive, it does have some advantages.
  • Because flight, in air as the fluid, is metabolically more costly at the lowest and the highest velocities.
  • The columns are metabolically active, and as bone is reabsorbed and created the nature and location of the cells within the osteon will change.
  • One issue is that many metals that are metabolically required are not readily available owing to solubility or scarcity.
  • One study found that BA25 is metabolically overactive in treatment-resistant depression.
  • Because higher aggression is metabolically costly and potentially debilitating, contact is much more likely to escalate when the conflict is over access to good foraging grounds.
  • However, when the same populations were placed in an iron-rich environment, the mutant population outcompeted wild-type population, demonstrating that siderophore production is metabolically costly.
  • These methods also allow the detection and identification of "viable but nonculturable" cells that are metabolically active but non-dividing.
  • These eggs, also known as cysts, are metabolically inactive and can remain in total stasis for two years while in dry oxygen-free conditions, even at temperatures below freezing.
  • Isotopic information is obtained mostly from feathers, since the keratin in feathers is metabolically inert.
  • In comparison to 2-arachidonoyl glycerol, noladin is metabolically more stable resulting in a longer half-life.
  • PLFA analysis may be combined with other techniques, such as stable isotope probing to determine which microbes are metabolically active in a sample.
