This study reports the antibacterial activity of an oligosaccharide, prepared by partial acid hydrolysis of a native Paecilomyces sp. exopolysaccharide, and of its aminoglycosylated derivative, prepared by reductive alkylation of the oligosaccharide, against E. coli and S. aureus.
Biotransformation of tryptophan to tryptamine and 3-methyl-indole by Psilocybe coprophila was performed. On the other hand, Aspergillus niger was able to transform tryptophan to 5-hydroxy-tryptophan. P. coprophila biotransformed 5-hydroxy-tryptophan to 5-hydroxytryptamine. These results prove once more that fungi are good tools to establish hydroxyindole(More)
A polysaccharide separated from Paecilomyces sp. was determined by gel permeation chromatography to be homogeneous. HPLC showed a monosaccharide containing D-glucose and D-fructose at a ratio of about 2:1. The results obtained from IR, 1H NMR, and 13C NMR analyses confirmed the proposed structure.
Serologic tests play an important role in diagnosis of typhoid fever. In an effort to develop a more defined reagent for these tests, purified Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi (ST) O:1,9,12 polysaccharide was conjugated to human serum albumin (HSA), and the conjugate was purified chromatographically to yield a reagent with 2 moles ST O polysaccharide per(More)
The medical treatment of laxoscelisms is based solely on supportive measures. Although equine antiserum for Sphingomyelinase C (SMASE) and D isomers are available, it is not used due to the risk of an anaphylactic reaction and its unproven efficacy. As potential enzyme inhibitors, derivatives of Iron chitosan complexes were studied (Shiff base having -R =(More)
The exopolysaccharide (EPS) separated from the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae was determined by gel permeation chromatography to be homogeneous. The high-performance anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed-amperometric detection (HPAE-PAD) showed a content of monosaccharides D-galactosamine and D-fucose at a molar ratio of about 2:1. The(More)
It was found by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy that the Schiff base, 2-deoxy-2-(2-hydroxybenzaldimino)-D-glucopyranose exhibits enol-imine-keto-amine and anomeric equilibria in methanolic, and in dimethyl sulfoxide solutions. The reaction of the Schiff base with nickel acetate gave the bidentate, mononuclear Ni(II) complex that was characterized by(More)
