Nine novel strains of halophilic and alkaliphilic lactic acid bacteria isolated from European soft and semi-hard cheeses by using a saline, alkaline medium (7 % NaCl, pH 9.5) were taxonomically characterized. The isolates were Gram-stain-positive, non-sporulating and non-motile. They lacked catalase and quinones. Under anaerobic cultivation conditions,(More)
The cyanide distribution in five fatal cyanide poisonings was analyzed by the pyridine-pyrazolone method using a Conway diffusion cell. In order to study the effect of storage conditions on cyanide concentration in tissue samples, the cyanide concentrations were first measured immediately after collection of the samples at autopsy, then measured again after(More)
Cook and Elvidge [1, 2] demonstrated that motile spermatozoids are attracted to a volatile substance secreted by mature eggs of brown marine algae, Fucus serratus and F. vesiculosus. Miiller and Jaenicke [3, 4], in 1973, isolated the volatile attractant of spermatozoids, 1,trans-3,cis-5-octatriene(fucoserratene) from the eggs and oogonia of F. serratus.(More)
Two novel strains of marine lactic acid bacteria, isolated from decaying marine algae collected from a subtropical area of Japan, are described. The isolates, designated O24-2(T) and O25-2, were Gram-positive, non-sporulating and non-motile. They lacked catalase and quinones. Under anaerobic cultivation conditions, lactate was produced from glucose with the(More)
We describe 10 new strains of marine lactic acid bacteria isolated from decaying marine algae, decaying seagrass, raw fish, salted fish and salted and fermented shrimp paste ('ka-pi') collected from a temperate area of Japan and Thailand. The isolates are Gram-positive and non-sporulating. They have motility with peritrichous flagella depending on the(More)
The mode of F Xa inhibition was investigated on a thromboresistant surface with end-point attached partially depolymerized heparin of an approximate molecular weight of 8000. Affinity chromatography revealed that one fourth of the heparin used in surface coating had high affinity for antithrombin III (AT). The heparin surface adsorbed AT from both human(More)
The thromboresistant function of a surface with end-point attached heparin is based upon interaction among the immobilized heparin, antithrombin, and at least factor Xa or thrombin. Heparinized arteriovenous shunts were implanted in dogs. By compressing a segment of the shunt, high and low wall shear rate regions were obtained in each shunt. After removal,(More)
About 8000 Daltons porcine mucosa heparin fragments were covalently bonded by end-point attachment to polyethylene. The interaction between the immobilized heparin, added thrombin, and antithrombin III [AT] was investigated. The heparin surface was adsorbed with either albumin, AT dissolved in albumin or Tyrode, or platelet free plasma. Irrespective of the(More)
