Chemical analyses and field bioassays showed a mixture of 92% (E)- and 8% (Z)-11-tetradecenal to be the sex attractant pheromone of the western spruce budworm,Choristoneura occidentalis Freeman. Females were also found to emit small amounts of the corresponding acetates and alcohols, but these components were not active in the bioassay. In contrast, in(More)
In this study, we report for the first time the presence of many noncholesterol sterols in human gallstones. Gallstones were obtained from 17 patients at cholesystectomy. They were rich in sterol composition, some 52.8% by weight. A number of different sterols were found: 22-dehydrocholesterol 0.29% of total sterols; cholestanol, 1.54%; lathosterol, 1.92%;(More)
Six species of phytoplankton,Pseudoisochrysis paradoxa, Isochrysis galbana, Monochrysis lutheri, Platymonas suecica, Thalassiosira fluviatilis and aChaetoceros species, were cultured in the laboratory and their sterol contents analyzed utilizing digitonin precipitation, thin layer and gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. A total of 7(More)
A moment method using a multifilament-current model is presented to analyze the modes propagating in a cylindrical dielectric waveguide. In this model, analytically derivable fields of filamentary electric and magnetic currents (of yet unknown propagation constant and amplitude) are used to simulate the field of each mode inside and outside the guiding(More)
An imporved method is described for measuring low levels of prostaglandin F2alpha in small volumes of cerebrospinal fluid. Single ion monitoring of the ion at m/e 423, derived from the methyl ester tri-TMS ether derivatives of prostaglandin F2alpha and the internal standard, w-trinor-16-cyclohexyl prostaglandin F2alpha, is employed. Injection of 2 pg of(More)
