WALL. A building or erection so well known as to need no definition. In general a man may build a wall on any part of his estate, to any height he may deem proper, and in such form as may best accommodate him; but he must take care not to erect a wall contrary to the local regulations, nor in such a manner as to be injurious to his neighbors. See Dig. 50, 16, 157. Vide Party Wall.

The work was undertaken by biologists at the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence in Plant Cell Walls within the universities of Melbourne and Queensland, in partnership with the IBM Research Collaboratory for Life Sciences.
We then investigated the effect on the yeast cell wall of seven synthetic alkamides that are known to occur in Echinacea root extracts.
Furthermore, lower UF resin loading resulted in higher extractability, consistent with the idea that UF oligomers infiltrate the cell wall, but are so dilute they do not fully polymerize.
Cell walls are thicker at the base and periphery of stems, where bending stresses are greatest.
We agree that mechanisms other than increased cell wall thickness, such as decreased autolysis, metabolic changes, and reduction in the cell wall content of penicillin binding protein 4, characterize Staphylococcus aureus isolates, and they could explain this reduced susceptibility not only to vancomycin but also to [beta]-lactam antimicrobial drugs.
However, the thickness of the cell walls of the tortillas decreased.
Structural parameters such as cell size, cell wall thickness, and cell density were related to compressive modulus, and the effect of these parameters on compressive behavior was evaluated.
ABSTRACT: Sodium hydroxide (SH) or ammonium bicarbonate (AB) were applied to rice straw to investigate the effects on histological change of stem tissue or cell wall before and after in sacco degradation using a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and a transmission electron microscope (TEM).
The Akroflocks are said to benefit rubber compounders in seals, where flock increases tear strength and improves dimensional stability and stiffness; rolls, where nylon and cotton flocks impart abrasion and chip resistance; belting, where cotton flock, applied prior to cure, prevents air trapping with minimum effect on adhesion; molded goods, where fiber and wood flours prevent cut growth and increase tear and modulus, and where they also allow air to bleed from the stock, which prevents blisters; and in molded open cell sponge, where wood and cotton flocks prevent cell wall collapse after cure.
One method to remove cell walls is to use enzymes to break down cell wall components to release the cell's sphaeroplast.
The subject of this study was aluminum (Al) and its effect on wheat cell wall peroxidases.
