Northern shrimp (Pandalus borealis) oil, which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, was recovered from the cooking water of shrimp processing facilities. The oil contains significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acids in triglyceride form, along with substantial long-chain monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs). It also features natural isomeric forms of astaxanthin, a… (More)
Species R(2)PCH(2)AlMe(2) (R = Me, Ph) are stable Lewis adducts but still react with CO(2) both in solution and in the solid state. The CO(2) adducts undergo a rearrangement unprecedented for ambiphilic molecules to form aluminium carboxylates. A new spirocyclic compound was also obtained by double Lewis pair activation of CO(2).
Neutral endopeptidase (NEP) is one of the major endopeptidases responsible for the inactivation of substance P in the carotid body, a neurotransmitter shown to be important in the transduction of hypoxic stimuli. Ventilatory responses to acute hypoxia were measured by indirect plethysmography in unanesthetized, unrestrained wild-type mice and in mice in… (More)
