The regio- and stereospecificity of bimolecular phenoxy radical coupling reactions, of especial importance in lignin and lignan biosynthesis, are clearly controlled in some manner in vivo; yet in vitro coupling by oxidases, such as laccases, only produce racemic products. In other words, laccases, peroxidases, and comparable oxidases are unable to control(More)
Mentha citrata Ehrh. (bergamot mint; Lamiaceae) produces an essential oil containing only the acyclic monoterpenol (-)-3R-linalool and its acetate ester. A cloning strategy based upon the assumption that the responsible monoterpene synthase would resemble, in sequence, monoterpene cyclases from this plant family yielded a cDNA encoding the (--)-3R-linalool(More)
Many of the functions that are mediated by the prefrontal cortex (PFC) are severely impaired in schizophrenia. The maturation of these functions takes place during late adolescence and early adulthood, which coincides with the period of time when overt symptomatology of schizophrenia most commonly emerges. Two developmental processes occurring during the(More)
