A method for measuring the transit time of a meal, containing sausages, mashed potato, baked beans, and a pineapple custard dessert, through the gastrointestinal tract was evaluated in 14 healthy volunteers. Gastric emptying was determined by incorporating a radioactive marker in the meal and counting over the surface of the stomach using a crystal(More)
The enzyme FabH catalyzes the initial step of fatty acid biosynthesis via a type II dissociated fatty acid synthase. The pivotal role of this essential enzyme, combined with its unique structural features and ubiquitous occurrence in bacteria, has made it an attractive new target for the development of antibacterial and antiparasitic compounds. We have(More)
S-Adenosylmethionine:nocardicin 3-amino-3-carboxypropyltransferase catalyzes the biosynthetically rare transfer of the 3-amino-3-carboxypropyl moiety from S-adenosylmethionine to a phenolic site in the beta-lactam substrates nocardicin E, F, and G, a late step of the biosynthesis of the monocyclic beta-lactam antibiotic nocardicin A. Whereas a number of(More)
