The heterocyclic moiety of 17 beta-(2-aminooxazol-4-yl) steroids is sensitive to the oxidizing action of hydrogen peroxide and yields products mainly from the opening of the amino-oxazole ring. Unlike simple 2-aminooxazoles, it does not rearrange to 2-imidazolone and the expected steroidal hydroperoxyimidazolidinones were not detected. Among the substances(More)
Phosphate esters of vitamins D2 and D3 (D2-O-P and D3-O-P) are hydrolyzed by the alkaline phosphatase from calf intestine (CAPase). pH optimum and Km values are in agreement with those reported for other substrates for intestinal alkaline phosphatase. No effect of activation was noted at low concentrations of D2-O-P and D3-O-P (10(-5)-10(-4)M) in contrast(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the value of IgA and IgG antigliadin antibody test (AGA) for screening, diagnosis and follow-up of coeliac disease. A rapid, simple, sensitive and accurate immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to determine AGA IgA and IgG in the sera of patients with untreated coeliac disease (I stage), coeliac patients in gluten(More)
