Acetyl-coenzyme A: 13-sophorosyloxydocosanoic acid (Glc2HDA) acetyltransferase was purified 14-fold in low yield from Candida bogoriensis cells. The enzyme catalyzes acetylation of the 6' and 6" positions of the sophorosyl group, producing the 13-[2'-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-beta-D-glucopyranosyloxy]-docosanoic acid 6',6"-diacetate (Ac2Glc2HDA) and(More)
A growing body of discourse-analytic studies demonstrates that within the legal system, spoken language that undergoes entextualization is transformed in a variety of sociopolitically consequential ways. Through the analysis of a legal case involving the institutional entextualization of incriminating language—an FBI summary log of wiretapped telephone(More)
The commitment of sociocultural linguistics to the cause of social justice has been central to the discipline since its foundation. This commitment is nowhere more evident than in the educational domain and particularly in the development of sociolinguistically informed curricula and teacher preparation programs. Such programs help ensure that students who(More)

Two enzymes have been isolated from Candida bogoriensis which catalyze the hydrolysis of 13-sophorosyloxydocosanoic acid (Glc2HDA) esters obtained from this organism. The 6',6"-diacetyl derivative of Glc2HDA (Ac2Glc2HDA) is hydrolyzed by an acetylesterase (EC 3.1.1.6) which has been purified 1300-fold. The acetylesterase has a molecular weight of 35,000(More)
