An organic extract from fresh shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) was studied for antimutagenic and antiproliferative properties using Salmonella typhimurium tester strains TA98 and TA100 with metabolic activation (S9) and a cancer cell line (B-cell lymphoma), respectively. Shrimp extract was sequentially fractionated by thin layer chromatography (TLC) and each… (More)
Trans-sialidase catalyzes the transference of sialic acid from host to the Trypanosoma cruzi surface. Here, we characterize the sialic acid acceptors of this protozoan parasite as mucin-like molecules, which are anchored to the membrane by glycosylphosphatidylinositol. The mucins isolated from the insect stages differ from the mucins isolated from the… (More)
The synthesis of nine new esters of norethisterone (17 alpha-ethynyl-17 beta-hydroxyestr-4-en-3-one) is described, with the esterifying acids bearing an acetylenic or olefinic function in a chain of eight or nine carbon atoms, for evaluation as long-acting contraceptive agents.
