Ovicidal activity and killing times were evaluated for six pediculicides, using viable eggs and recently fed head lice from infested children. Lice were continuously exposed to the products until death, and elapsed time was recorded. Eggs were immersed for ten minutes, rinsed, and dried. Four synergized pyrethrin products (RID, R&C Shampoo, A-200 Pyrinate(More)
Bacterial symbiotes in the human body louse Pediculus humanus migrate from the mycetome to the lateral oviducts during the adult molt. Their migration was first described by Ries (E. Ries. 1931. Z. Morphol. Oekol. Tiere, 20:233-367.), who examined sectioned specimens with light microscopy. The present study is a more detailed investigation which involves(More)
Autogenous and anautogenous strains were selected from a laboratory colony of Culex tarsalis established from a foothill environment in Kern County, California. An autogenous strain also was selected from immatures collected at the Kern River. Autogenous and anautogenous strains remained heterogeneous and did not consistently exhibit 100 or 0% autogeny,(More)
In the search for new bioactive compounds, there is a trend toward increasingly complex compound libraries aiming to target the demanding targets of the future. In contrast, medicinal chemistry and traditional library design rely mainly on a small set of highly established and robust reactions. Here, we probe a set of 58 such reactions for their ability to(More)
The use of flow photochemistry and its apparent superiority over batch has been reported by a number of groups in recent years. To rigorously determine whether flow does indeed have an advantage over batch, a broad range of synthetic photochemical transformations were optimized in both reactor modes and their yields and productivities compared.(More)
Mutations in the human FBN1 gene are known to be associated with the Marfan syndrome, an autosomal dominant inherited multi-systemic connective tissue disorder. However, in the absence of solid genotype-phenotype correlations, the identification of an FBN1 mutation has only little prognostic value. We propose a bioinformatics framework for the mutated FBN1(More)
A focused collection of organic synthesis reactions for computer-based molecule construction is presented. It is inspired by real-world chemistry and has been compiled in close collaboration with medicinal chemists to achieve high practical relevance. Virtual molecules assembled from existing starting material connected by these reactions are supposed to(More)
Thioester-mediated peptide bond formation has recently garnered a lot of attention, most notably in its relevance to condensation of large peptide fragments. Herein, a simple and general ligation method for the preparation of linear and cyclic peptides, starting from peptide thioester, mainly p-chlorophenyl, precursors is reported. The inherent advantages(More)
