In Rhodobacter sphaeroides, cytochrome c2 (cyt c2)-deficient mutants are photosynthetically incompetent (PS-). However, mutations which suppress the photosynthetic deficiency (spd mutations) of cyt c2 mutants increase the levels of a cyt c2 isoform, isocyt c2. To determine whether isocyt c2 was required for photosynthetic growth of Spd mutants, we used Tn5(More)
Improvements in the performance of small molecule-based organic solar cells have been reported through the use of a cyanopyridone acceptor group. This acceptor fragment enhances the absorbance of an oligothiophene-based dye and enables the addition of a solubilising alkyl chain that facilitates simple device fabrication from solution.
A series of 2-phenylimidazo[1,2-b]pyridazine derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro anthelmintic activity against Haemonchus contortus. The most active compounds had in vitro LD(99) values of 30nM, which is comparable to that of the benchmark commercial nematocide, Ivermectin.
A series of novel 2-alkoxy- and 2-aryloxyiminoalkyl trifluoromethanesulfonanilide derivatives have shown significant in vitro parasiticidal activity against the ectoparasites Ctenocephalides felis and Rhipicephalus sanguineus. A number of these compounds also displayed significant in vitro endoparasite activity against the nematode Haemonchus contortus.
A series of 2-phenyl-3-(1H-pyrrol-2-yl)acrylonitrile derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for in vitro activity against the endoparasite Haemonchus contortus and the ectoparasite Ctenocephalides felis. Some compounds had significant in vitro activity against these parasites.
