Prey collected by Vespula vulgaris and V. germanica were sampled by intercepting foragers returning to nests at two sites in scrubland-pasture near Hamilton. About 12% of returning foragers carried animal prey and 5% carried wood pulp. The remaining 83% carried no external load. The most common prey item for both species was Diptera, followed by Lepidoptera(More)
In the search for novel bioactive products from filamentous fungi, sterols and triterpenoids found in Phycomyces blakesleeanus were analyzed using semipreparative HPLC, GC-MS, and NMR techniques. Structures proposed for the three new compounds identified, phycomysterol A (1), phycomysterol B (2), and neoergosterol (3), were confirmed by chemical synthesis.(More)
BACKGROUND Little information is available about HDL subpopulations during dietary changes. OBJECTIVE The objective was to investigate the effect of reductions in total and saturated fat intakes on HDL subpopulations. DESIGN Multiracial, young and elderly men and women (n = 103) participating in the double-blind, randomized DELTA (Dietary Effects on(More)
Phycomyces is a fungal producer of beta-carotene and other beneficial metabolites. Several erg mutants of Phycomyces, originally selected to study the effects of membrane alteration on physiological responses, have now been used to gain information about sterol biosynthesis in filamentous fungi. One mutant, H23, and its progeny were found to be blocked at(More)
The effects of streptozotocin-induced diabetes on catecholamine and indoleamine concentrations and catecholamine turnover rates in individual microdissected hypothalamic nuclei known, or believed, to be involved in the control of neuroendocrine function, were examined in control, insulin-treated diabetic and acutely insulin-withdrawn diabetic female rats.(More)
We have established the chemical structure of (+)-bassianolone (3), the antimicrobial compound precursor of cephalosporolides E and F, and that of the furan metabolite 4 from the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana.
