In 1996, four α-methyl amino acids in the Murchison meteorite—L-isovaline, L-α-methylnorvaline, L-α-methyl-allo-isoleucine and L-α-methyl-isoleucine—were found to show significant enantiomeric excesses of the L form, ranging from 2% to 9%. Their deuterium to hydrogen isotope ratios suggest they formed in the pre-solar interstellar gas cloud rather than(More)
We present new coupled-perturbed Hartree-Fock (CPHF) and density functional theory (DFT) computations of the parity-violating energy difference (PVED) between enantiomers for H2O2 and H2S2. Our DFT PVED computations are the first for H2S2 and the first with the new HCTH and OLYP functionals. Like other “second generation” PVED computations, our results are(More)
The preceding paper described our coupled-perturbed Hartree-Fock (CPHF) and density functional theory (DFT) methods of computing the parity-violating energy shift (PVES). This paper addresses the “conformation problem”—the difficulty determining which hand of amino acids in solution is favoured by the weak force due to the difficulty determining the(More)
Agrobacterium infection, which is widely used to generate transgenic plants, is often accompanied by T-DNA-linked mutations and transpositions in flowering plants. It is not known if Agrobacterium infection also affects the rates of point mutations, somatic homologous recombinations (SHR) and frame-shift mutations (FSM). We examined the effects of(More)
