Primary cultures of cerebral cortical astrocytes and neurons, as well as neurons growing on top of the astrocytes (sandwich co-cultures), were incubated with 1-[13C]glucose or 2-[13C]acetate and in the presence or absence of the glutamine synthetase inhibitor methionine sulfoximine. [13C]NMR spectroscopy at 125 MHz was performed on perchloric acid extracts(More)
A series of promising truncated antibacterial tripeptides derived from lactoferricin has been prepared, and their in vitro metabolic stability in the main metabolic compartments, plasma, liver, kidney, stomach, duodenum, and brain, has been investigated for the first time. The potential stabilizing effect of truncation, C-terminal capping, and introduction(More)
