1. Injections of carrageenin (1,25 mg/kg i.v.) from the 1st to the 3rd day and then each 2nd or 3rd day inhibited paw swelling in adjuvant arthritis of the rat during the time of treatment. Injections from the 11th to the 15th day were ineffective. The level of plasma kininogen was slightly decreased but the total complement serum level was significantly(More)
Four mutations in the mitochondrial cytochrome b of Saccharomyces cerevisiae have been characterized with respect to catalytic properties, inhibitor resistance and subunit interaction. The respiratory-deficient mutant [G137E]cytochrome b and the pseudo-wild-type revertant [G137E, N256K]cytochrome b were described previously [di Rago, J.-P., Netter, P. &(More)
Kappa-carrageenins cause disseminated intravascular coagulation with thrombosis of the tail in rats and mice. Frequency and extent of tail thrombosis were used for determining antithrombotic effects after systemic and local external administration of substances. Inhibitors of cyclooxygenase and thromboxane synthetase caused irregular inhibition of(More)
Oxphaman and particularly oxphalin, among other phenolic azomethines, have been proven as strong inhibitors of lipoxygenases (LOX) from reticulocytes, soybean, thrombocytes as well as of quasi-LOX (hemoglobin) with IC50 values which correspond with those of known LOX inhibitors. The 5-LOX is likewise strongly, the cyclooxygenase of sheep seminal vesicles(More)
