Determination of endogenous formaldehyde in plants (fruits) bound to L-arginine and its relation to the folate cycle, photosynthesis and apoptosis.
A very powerful nucleophilic reagent, hydralazine(1-hydrazino-phtalazine) proved to be suitable for determination of the endogenous formaldehyde level in biological samples. It was found that inExpand

Antagonistic reactions of arginine and lysine against formaldehyde and their relation to cell proliferation, apoptosis, folate cycle and photosynthesis
Abstract1H, 13C NMR, ESMS and MS/MS investigations proved that there is an antagonism in the spontaneous reaction of formaldehyde with L-lysine and L-arginine. L-Arginine can only beExpand

Endogenous formaldehyde level of foods and its biological significance
Abstract Formaldehyde was measured in different food samples based on its reaction with hydralazine to form s-triazolo-(3,4-α)-phthalazine(Tri-P). Formaldehyde reacts with hydralazine under mildExpand

Continuous administration of the somatostatin structural derivative /TT-232/ by subcutaneously implanted osmotic pump improves the efficacy and potency of antitumor therapy in different mouse and
BACKGROUND The somatostatin structural derivative, TT-232, has a special 5-residue ring structure (D-Phe-Cys-Tyr-D-Trp-Lys-Cys-Thr-NH2) and very different characteristics from the known growthExpand
