Extracts of Toona sinensis shoots were studied to identify the precursors of volatile sulfur-containing flavor molecules. T. sinensis was found to contain new compounds (S,S)-γ-glutamyl-(cis-S-1-propenyl)thioglycine, 1, (S,S)-γ-glutamyl-(trans-S-1-propenyl)thioglycine, 2, and γ-glutamyl-(cis-S-1-propenyl)-cysteine, 3. The structures of these compounds were(More)
The UL100 gene of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) has been shown to encode an envelope glycoprotein that might play an important role in HCMV infection. Using the HCMV UL100 gene as a probe in low stringency hybridization studies, we were able to identify the putative UL100 homologous gene of murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV), strain Smith. The MCMV gene was(More)
Mucosal sites serve as the principle venues through which primary human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infections are transferred from donor to host. These moist tissues, which provide the interface with the external environment, also provide access to many of the secondary opportunistic infections that aggravate and may accelerate HIV-1 disease.(More)
Several chicken parts (skin, fat, juice) were cooked in different ways (roasting, simmering) and investigated separately for their volatile composition. In-depth GC/MS analysis of the separate fractions revealed several unknown molecules. Mass spectra interpretation allowed us to identify nine molecules for the first time in chicken, including cyclic(More)
