Identification of Arabidopsis thaliana phloem RNAs provides a search criterion for phloem-based transcripts hidden in complex datasets of microarray experiments.
The dataset thus provides a search criterion for phloem-based signals hidden in the complex datasets of microarray experiments, and will facilitate reverse-genetic studies and forward-genetically screens forphloem and long-distance RNA signalling mutants.
Comprehensive Investigation of Marine Actinobacteria Associated with the Sponge Halichondria panicea
It was shown that strains in which either PKS or NRPS genes were identified produced a significantly higher number of metabolites and exhibited a larger number of unidentified, possibly new metabolites than other strains, which is a good indicator for the selection of strains to isolate new natural products.
Scopularides A and B, cyclodepsipeptides from a marine sponge-derived fungus, Scopulariopsis brevicaulis.
Two novel cyclodepsipeptides, scopularides A and B, were found in the fungus Scopulariopsis brevicaulis, which was isolated from the marine sponge Tethya aurantium. In addition, the known fungal
Mayamycin, a cytotoxic polyketide from a Streptomyces strain isolated from the marine sponge Halichondria panicea.
Mayamycin exhibited potent cytotoxic activity against eight human cancer cell lines and showed activity against several bacteria including antibiotic-resistant strains.
Activities of Naphthylisoquinoline Alkaloids and Synthetic Analogs against Leishmania major
The data suggest that ancistrocladiniums A and B and the synthetically prepared isoquinolinium salt (compound 14) are promising candidates to be considered as lead compounds for leishmanicidal drugs.
Analysis of the glucosinolate pattern of Arabidopsis thaliana seeds by capillary zone electrophoresis coupled to electrospray ionization‐mass spectrometry
The sensitivity together with mass accuracy and true isotopic pattern of the TOF‐MS allowed identification of a broad series of glucosinolates in Arabidopsis thaliana seeds.
Ancistrocladinium A and B, the First N,C-Coupled Naphthyldihydroisoquinoline Alkaloids, from a Congolese Ancistrocladus Species¶
The isolation and structural elucidation of three novel-type naphthylisoquinoline alkaloids, ancistrocladinium A and B (the latter along with its atropisomer), from a Congolese Ancistrocladus species
Ancistrocladus ileboensis (D.R.Congo), a new liana with unique alkaloids
The phytochemical peculiarities together with morphological features support the separation of A. ileboensis as a new species from the Congolian lowland forests ecoregion in the south of the Congo Basin.
