The biosynthesis of 3'-deoxyadenosine (cordycepin) by Cordyceps militaris has been investigated using [U-14C]adenosine and [3-3H]ribose. Crystallization of the resulting radioactive 3'-deoxyadenosine to a constant specific activity showed incorporation of both labeled compounds. A control showed that the 3H:14C ratio of the AMP isolated from the RNA was the(More)
Proponents of ecosystem services approaches to assessment claim that it will ensure the environment is ‘properly valued’ in decision making. Analysts seeking to understand the likelihood of this could usefully reexamine previous attempts to deploy novel assessment processes in land-use planning and how they affect decisions.
