From the aerial parts of Pentas lanceolata, belonging to the family Rubiaceae, a series of iridoid glucosides was isolated by preparative HPLC. Seven iridoid glucosides were identified. Besides asperuloside and asperulosidic acid, characteristic iridoids for Rubiaceae, five new iridoids were isolated, namely, tudoside (1), 13R-epi-gaertneroside (2),(More)
The frequency of cyanobacterial blooms has been increasing all over the world. These blooms are often toxic and have become a serious health problem. The aim of this work was to search for population density control mechanisms that could inhibit the proliferation of the toxic bloom-forming genus Microcystis. Microcystis PCC 7806 cultured for long periods in(More)
A complete procedure is described for the extraction, detection and quantification of anatoxin-a in biological samples. Anatoxin-a is extracted from biomass by a routine acid base extraction. The extract is analysed by GC-MS, without the need of derivatization, with a detection limit of 0.5 ng. A method was developed for the accurate quantification of(More)
Two cell lines of Tabernaemontana divaricata derived from the same suspension culture accumulate different amounts of the terpenoid indole alkaloids O-acetylvallesamine and voaphylline. [15N]O-acetylvallesamine and [15N]voaphylline were added to the suspension cultures to investigate whether the lack of accumulating capacity of one of the cell lines was due(More)
The relative importance of breakdown on the accumulation of indole alkaloids has been determined in suspension cultures of Tabernaemontana divaricata and Catharanthus roseus by the feeding of stable isotope labelled alkaloids. In all cultures a considerable amount of the alkaloid biosynthesized was broken down. The breakdown was found to be dependent on the(More)
[Structure: see text] Citrifolin A was revised to dehydromethoxygaertneroside (2). Citrifolinoside and yopaaoside A were found to be identical, and their structures were revised to the new structure dehydroepoxymethoxygaertneroside (5). Yopaaoside B was revised to citrifolinoside A (9), and morindacin was revised to borreriagenin (11).
Cultures from the cyanobacterial strain Microcystis aeruginosa PCC 7806 submitted to nutrient limitation become chlorotic. When returned to nutrient rich conditions these cultures regain their green colour. The aim of this study was to verify whether the cells in these cultures could be considered resting stages allowing the survival of periods of nutrient(More)
This work demonstrates the feasibility of 2-D time-domain, adjoint-state acoustic full-waveform inversion (FWI) to retrieve high-resolution models of ocean physical parameters such as sound speed, temperature and salinity. The proposed method is first described and then applied to prestack multichannel seismic (MCS) data acquired in the Gulf of Cadiz (SW(More)
