A trehalose-containing glycolipid was detected in several strains of Mycobacterium fortuitum and characterized as 2,3-di-O-acyltrehalose (DAT) by combined NMR spectroscopy, IR spectroscopy, GLC and GLC-MS. Lipid constituents of the molecule were identified as a mixture of straight-chain (14-18 carbon atoms) and methyl-branched-chain (17-21 carbon atoms)(More)
Habitat fragmentation and loss are important drivers of genetic differentiation, often leading to a decrease in genetic diversity. Yet, natural populations of tropical bees often show a lack of differentiation, even in fragmented landscapes, suggesting resilience to deal with unfavourable land use. It is not clear what leads to this lack of differentiation,(More)
In this study we analyse a corpus of 300 randomly selected research paper titles written in English and published between 1998 and 2012 in the most prestigious journals in the field of Astrophysics, an under-researched discipline from a linguistic standpoint. We specifically address issues related to the evolution of titles, their length, their lexical(More)
Fluid replacement therapy for pediatric patients in the past 50 years has meant the infusion of hypotonic solutions in amounts calculated using the Holliday-Segar formula. Recent studies have focused attention on the incidence of postoperative hyponatremia and associated morbidity and mortality rates, generating debate on the advisability of perioperative(More)
Esophageal atresia is a rare condition (1:2,500-4,500), incompatible with life, and a surgical emergency in the neonatal period. It is associated with prematurity in 30% of cases, and to congenital abnormalities in 50% of cases, especially cardiac anomalies. Major congenital heart diseases and low weight are independent predictors of mortality and critical(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to determine the pattern of use of antihypertensive drugs in the Murcia Region, comparing the results with the national data, and detecting problems in order to make improvements, or establish hypotheses and to plan new studies. DESIGN Pharmacoepidemiological study (from 2004 to 2008) in accordance with the(More)
A family of 2,3-di-O-acyl trehaloses (DAT), previously identified in Mycobacterium fortuitum, was studied by fast-atom bombardment mass spectrometry to establish the combinations of fatty acyl substituents and, hence, to delineate the molecular species there comprised. The mass spectra indicated the possible existence of 41 molecular species, with a total(More)
