We describe the unusual case of a teenage girl who was presented to a tertiary care center with unexplained acute encephalopathy preceded by long-standing severe headaches, irritability, cognitive impairment and ultimately altered level of consciousness. Her extensive workup was exceptional for abnormal Computerized Tomography (CT) scan suggestive of small(More)
The reaction of I (-) with methyl naphthalene-2-sulfonate (MeONs) is accelerated by the micellized sulfobetaine surfactants N-decyl, N-dodecyl, N-tetradecyl, and N-hexadecyl- N, N-dimethylammonio-1-propanesulfonate. Concentrations of micellar-bound I (-) were determined by using ion-selective electrodes (ISE), and capillary electrophoresis. At low(More)
With fully micellar bound substrates reactions of OH- with benzoic anhydride, Bz(2)O, and of Br- with methyl naphthalene-2-sulfonate, MeONs, in micellized sulfobetaines are strongly inhibited by NaClO4 which displaces the nucleophilic anions from the micellar pseudophases. Micellar incorporations of ClO4- and Br- are estimated with an ion-selective(More)
Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) are a group of metabolic disorders of the lysosomal storage disease family caused by the absence or malfunctioning of lysosomal enzymes, which blocks degradation of mucopolysaccharides and leads to abnormal accumulation of heparan sulfate, dermatan sulfate, and keratan sulfate. Morquio’s syndrome is a rare autosomal-recessive(More)
Mixed micelles of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTABr) or dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide (DTABr) and the alpha-nucleophile, lauryl hydroxamic acid (LHA) accelerate dephosphorylation of bis(2,4-dinitrophenyl)phosphate (BDNPP) over the pH range 4-10. With a 0.1 mole fraction of LHA in DTABr or CTABr, dephosphorylation of BDNPP is approximately 10(4)-fold(More)
