The electron-density distribution of the high-pressure polymorph of SiO2, stishovite [a = 4.177 (1), c = 2.6655 (5) A, space group P4(2)/mnm, Z = 2], has been redetermined by single-crystal diffractometry using synchrotron radiation of 100.42 and 30.99 keV, respectively, in order to obtain essentially absorption- and extinction-free data. Room-temperature(More)
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) was incubated at 22-24 degrees C for 24 hr with various polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), bound to albumin, to determine whether changes in the FA composition of the platelet phospholipids might induce changes in platelet behavior and in platelet structural integrity. The PUFA tested were linoleic (18:2 w6), linoleic (18:3 w3),(More)
The effects of glucose, insulin and sera from Type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetic patients on the synthesis of prostacyclin in vitro were studied in confluent primary cultures of human endothelial cells. The stable metabolite, 6-keto-prostaglandin F1α, was measured in growth medium after 24 h of incubation with endothelial cells in a buffer incubated with(More)
The charge density of glycyl-L-threonine dihydrate is extracted from a synchrotron data set of 98405 reflections collected at 100 K with a Bruker CCD area detector up to a resolution of d=0.38 A (sintheta/lambda = 1.32 A 1). The data are interpreted in terms of the "rigid pseudoatom" model. The topology of the experimental density is analyzed and compared(More)
Several Mannich ketones of 2-arylmethylenecycloalkanones were synthesised using the classical acid-catalysed Mannich reaction. Antibacterial activity of these new water-soluble compounds was reported against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus saprophyticus, Micrococcus luteus and Bacillus subtilis standard(More)
The charge density of a hexapeptide was determined from high-resolution CCD area-detector experiments at 100 K. Two datasets, one from a rotating anode and a second one from synchrotron radiation, were measured and the results are compared. The data are interpreted in terms of the 'rigid pseudoatom' model. The topology of the experimental density is(More)
An X-ray mirror fumace is described that has been developed for in situ diffraction experiments at a synchrotron source for temperatures up to 1600 K. It can be used in a reducing as well as in an oxidizing atmosphere. In this kind of furnace, the sample is located at one focus of a rotational ellipsoid and heated by the radiation of a halogen lamp located(More)
