In order to obtain homologous follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) for in vivo and in vitro studies in the rat, rat recombinant (rec) FSH was produced in Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells. The synthesized rat recFSH was purified and subjected to physico-chemical and biological characterization. including a comparison with two rat pituitary (pit) and reference(More)
Rat recombinant (rec) luteinizing hormone (LH) was produced in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, to enable studies on LH physiology in this species with homologous hormone. The synthesized hormone was purified, and characterized physico-chemically and biologically in comparison with highly purified preparations of rat pituitary (pit) LH (NIDDK-rLH-I-7 and(More)
Currently, the in vivo biopotency of commercial preparations containing the glycoprotein follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is declared on the basis of the ovarian weight augmentation assay as described in the British, European and United States Pharmacopoeias. Human FSH contains approximately 35% (W/W) carbohydrate which introduces considerable(More)
In the present study metabolites of methylprednisolone were detected using gradient elution high-performance liquid chromatography. Separation was performed by a Cp Spherisorb ODS 5 microm (250 mmx4.6 mm I.D.) column, connected to a guard column, packed with pellicular reversed phase. The mobile phase was a mixture of acetonitrile and 1% acetic acid in(More)
Glucosinolates are secondary plant compounds typically found in members of the Brassicaceae and a few other plant families. Usually each plant species contains a specific subset of the ∼ 130 different glucosinolates identified to date. However, intraspecific variation in glucosinolate profiles is commonly found. Sinalbin (4-hydroxybenzyl glucosinolate) so(More)
The following metabolites of sulfadiazine (S) were isolated from monkey urine by preparative HPLC: 5-hydroxysulfadiazine (5OH), 4-hydroxysulfadiazine (4OH) and the glucuronide (5OHgluc) and sulfate conjugate of 5OH (5OHsulf). The compounds were identified by NMR, mass and infrared spectrometry and hydrolysis by beta-glucuronidase. The analysis of S, the(More)
From human urine the following metabolites of sulfamethoxazole (S) were isolated by preparative HPLC: 5-methylhydroxysulfamethoxazole (SOH), N4-acetyl-5-methylhydroxysulfamethoxazole (N4SOH) and sulfamethoxazole-N1-glucuronide (Sgluc). The compounds were identified by NMR, mass spectrometry, infrared spectrometry, hydrolysis by beta-glucuronidase and ratio(More)
