Chromobacterium violaceum is one of millions of species of free-living microorganisms that populate the soil and water in the extant areas of tropical biodiversity around the world. Its complete genome sequence reveals (i) extensive alternative pathways for energy generation, (ii) 500 ORFs for transport-related proteins, (iii) complex and extensive systems(More)
Sex determination in mammals is dependent on the presence of SRY, which codes for a protein with a DNA binding motif (the HMG-box domain). Here we analyze the evolution of SRY among seven genera of New World monkeys belonging to the family Cebidae. Estimates of the number of synonymous and nonsynonymous substitutions indicated the absence of positive(More)
The synthesis of the benzothiopyranoindazoles, a new class of chromophore modified anthracenediones related to mitoxantrone, is described. In this structural class the quinone moiety, which is believed to be responsible for the cardiotoxicity of the anthracyclines, has been designed out. The synthesis of the benzothiopyranoindazoles was carried out by a(More)
1 The synthesis of [14C]-debrisoquine hydrochloride and 4-hydroxy-debrisoquine sulphate is described. 2 The metabolic fate and excretion profile in both urine and faeces of 14C-labelled debrisoquine was studied in five healthy human subjects. 3 Investigations showed that the drug is well-absorbed after a single oral dose of 32 mg and quantitatively(More)
The dosage compensation machinery of Caenorhabditis elegans is targeted specifically to the X chromosomes of hermaphrodites (XX) to reduce gene expression by half. Many of the trans-acting factors that direct the dosage compensation machinery to X have been identified, but none of the proposed cis-acting X chromosome-recognition elements needed to recruit(More)
Addition, together with antigen, of compound I.C.I. 74917 (0.1 pg/ml) to chopped sensitized lung, preincubated with DL-isoprenaline for 3 min, resulted in extra inhibition of histamine release as seen in Fig. 2(a). Comparison of the total inhibition with individual values for compound I.C.I. 74917 and isoprenaline show that there is addition rather than(More)
A series of N-[4-[[4-alkoxy-3-[(dialkylamino)methyl]phenyl]amino]- 2-pyrimidinyl]-N'-phenylguanidines have been synthesized for antifilarial evaluation. Reaction of the appropriate benzenamines with N-cyanoguanidine, followed by condensation of the resultant N-phenylimidodicarbonimidic diamides (V) with ethyl 4,4,4-trifluoro-3-oxobutanoate provided the(More)
