A simple cytochemical technique for demonstration of DNA in cells infected with mycoplasmas and viruses
4′-6-DIAMIDINO-2-PHENYLINDOLE (DAPI), which was first synthesised by Dann et al.1 as a trypanocide related to Berenil, has been shown to possess useful DNA binding properties2. Thus, DAPI will bindExpand

A Method of isolating Protoplasts from Yeast
A NEW approach to the structure and functions of the cell surface of certain bacteria was revealed when Weibull1 showed that, in the presence of sucrose, lysozyme dissolves the cell-wall, leaving theExpand

Formaldehyde as an Acceptor Aldehyde for Transketolase, and the Biosynthesis of Triose
THE enzyme transketolase is biologically widely distributed, and, in presence of thiamine pyrophosphate and magnesium ions, transfers the ketol group or ‘active glycolaldehyde’ (CH2OH.CO…H) from aExpand

Base Compositions of DNA from some Malarial Parasites
THE base composition of DNA, usually expressed as mean molar per cent of guanine plus cytosine (per cent G + C), has proved to be a useful indicator of phylogenetic relationships between organisms.Expand

Formation of Erythulose from Hydroxypyruvate in the Presence of Yeast Carboxylase
HYDROXYPYRUVATE is a metabolite which can arise from the biological oxidation of glycerate1, transamination of serine2, or decarboxylative condensation of glyoxylate3. In the presence ofExpand

Enzymic Oxidation of Glyceric Acid
THE reduction of hydroxypyruvate to glycerate is brought about by crystalline L-lactic dehydrogenase of muscle1 with the production of L-glyceric acid2. A substrate-specific D-glycerateExpand
