The cis- and trans-isomers of 5-butyl-4-methyl-4,5-dihydro-2(3H)-furanone, the so-called oak lactones, are derived from oakwood, and the cis-isomer is an important contributor to wine flavour. Their deuterium-labelled forms, [2H4]cis-oak lactone and [2H4]trans-oak lactone, were synthesised from the unlabelled analogues, and were utilised in a new method(More)
A system is described to evaluate for nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs by means of luminol-dependent human-granulocyte chemiluminescence (CL) is described. The CL is produced using either opsonized zymosan (yeast cells) or the soluble chemotactic peptide f-Met-Leu-Phe as the perturbant of the granulocyte membrane. Using either system, the following drug(More)
Peptide-mediated interactions are of primordial importance to the cell, and the structure of such interaction provides an important starting point for their further characterization. In many cases, the structure of the peptide-protein complex has not been solved by experiment, and modeling tools need to be applied to generate structural models of the(More)
