Antibodies to specific nucleic acid conformations are amongst the methods that have allowed the study of non-canonical (Watson–Crick) DNA structures in higher organisms. In this work, the structural limitations for the immunological detection of DNA.RNA hybrid duplexes were examined using specific RNA homopolymers as probes for homopolymer polydeoxyadenylic(More)
Terpenoid flavor and fragrance compounds are of high interest to the aroma industry. Microbial production offers an alternative sustainable access to the desired terpenoids independent of natural sources. Genetically engineered microorganisms can be used to synthesize terpenoids from cheap and renewable resources. Due to its modular architecture, terpenoid(More)
This paper reports investigations using hepatocytes to study the metabolism and DNA binding of the environmental contaminant, 1,6-dinitropyrene. Since 1,6-dinitropyrene is not believed to be mutagenic per se, metabolites were synthesized and the metabolism of 1,6-dinitropyrene was subsequently studied in rat hepatocytes. The mode of activation of(More)
