Bioremediation is of great interest in the detoxification of soil contaminated with residues from explosives such as hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX). Although there are numerous forms of in situ and ex situ bioremediation, ruminants would provide the option of an in situ bioreactor that could be transported to the site of contamination. Bovine(More)
The ability of ruminal microbes to degrade the explosive compound hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX) in ovine whole rumen fluid (WRF) and as 24 bacterial isolates was examined under anaerobic conditions. Compound degradation was monitored by high-performance liquid chromatography analysis, followed by liquid chromatography–tandem mass(More)
Various GM3 derivatives which are present in A431 cells have different effects on the activity of the EGF receptor kinase. In order to systematically study these effects, the following GM3 derivatives have been synthesized: de-N-acetyl-GM3 (D1), de-N-acetyl-lyso-GM3 (D2), lyso-GM3 (D3), de-N-acetyl-GM3 with N-acetylsphingosine (D4), and GM3 with(More)
We have previously reported on carbohydrate structures of the major acidic glycosphingolipids from the liver of the English sole, Parophrys vetulus (Ostrander, G. K., Levery, S. B., Hakomori, S., and Holmes, E. H. (1988) J. Biol. Chem. 263, 3103-3110). We have now isolated four major neutral glycosphingolipids from English sole liver. They have been(More)
In contrast with the incidence in Britain and the United States, about 50% of intussusceptions in Sri Lanka occur in adults, the maximum age incidence being in the fourth decade. Seventy-six cases of intussusception in adults are analysed in this paper, 62 of which were of the caecocolic type, which though only rarely described in the West, have also been(More)
Fragment-based drug discovery (FBDD) has become increasingly popular over the last decade. We review here how we have used highly structure-driven fragment-based approaches to complement more traditional lead discovery to tackle high priority targets and those struggling for leads. Combining biomolecular nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), X-ray(More)
The carbohydrate structures of the major glycosphingolipids from the liver of the rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss have been examined. We have isolated and identified four major neutral (glucosylceramide, galactosylceramide, lactosylceramide, and globoside) and five acidic (sulfatide, GM3, GM2, GD1a, and 9-O-Acetyl GD3) glycosphingolipids from trout liver.(More)
