A convenient method for determination of the C20–22 PUFA composition of glycerolipids in blood and breast milk
A convenient method was developed for preparation of FAME in small amounts from glycerolipids of blood or breast milk. Initially, 0.04–0.06 mL blood or breast milk was spotted onto a small piece ofExpand

Long-chain N-vanillyl-acylamides from Capsicum oleoresin.
N-Vanillyl-acylamides (NVAs) naturally occur as capsaicinoids in Capsicum plants. NVAs with a longer chain acyl moiety (LCNVAs) have been developed as attractive tools for medicinal usage because ofExpand

Incorporation of 18O into oxalic, l-threonic and l-tartaric acids during cleavage of l-ascorbic and 5-keto-d-gluconic acids in plants
Abstract l -[1,6- 14 C]Ascorbic acid was administered to young leaves of Pelargonium . 5-Keto- d -[1- 14 C]gluconic acid, a metabolic product of l -[1- 14 C]ascorbic acid in grape, was supplied toExpand

Conversion of d-glucosone to oxalic acid and l-(+)-tartaric acid in detached leaves of Pelargonium
Abstract Previous studies have shown that d - arabino -2-hexulose (trivial name, d -glucosone) is converted to l -ascorbic acid in bean and spinach leaves. The present study examines oxidativeExpand
