Gas chromatographic retention indices of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes on methyl silicon and Carbowax 20M phases
Gas chromatographic retention indices (Kovats' indices) are a valuable aid in the identification of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes in essential oils and related natural and synthetic products. SomeExpand

Hyperpolarizing vasodilators activate ATP-sensitive K+ channels in arterial smooth muscle.
Vasodilators are used clinically for the treatment of hypertension and heart failure. The effects of some vasodilators seem to be mediated by membrane hyperpolarization. The molecular basis of thisExpand

A single aspartate residue is involved in both intrinsic gating and blockage by Mg2+ of the inward rectifier, IRK1.
1. We describe the effects on channel function of changing an aspartate residue (Asp172) in a membrane‐spanning alpha‐helix of the murine inward rectifier, IRK1, by site‐directed mutagenesis. 2.Expand

Auxin Biosynthesis in Pea: Characterization of the Tryptamine Pathway1[W][OA]
One pathway leading to the bioactive auxin, indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), is known as the tryptamine pathway, which is suggested to proceed in the sequence: tryptophan (Trp), tryptamine,Expand

Gas chromatographic quality control for oil of Melaleuca terpinen-4-ol type (Australian tea tree)
Detailed GC and GC-MS analyses of oil of Melaleuca have identified several constituents not previously reported from Melaleuca alternifolia and clarified some earlier assignments. The range, mean,Expand

A photosynthetic alveolate closely related to apicomplexan parasites
Many parasitic Apicomplexa, such as Plasmodium falciparum, contain an unpigmented chloroplast remnant termed the apicoplast, which is a target for malaria treatment. However, no close relative ofExpand

Tetraethylammonium block of Slowpoke calcium-activated potassium channels expressed in Xenopus oocytes: Evidence for tetrameric channel formation
Unitary currents were recorded from insideout membrane patches pulled from Xenopus oocytes that had been injected with RNA transcribed from a cDNA encoding the Drosophila maxi-K channel (Slowpoke).Expand

Angiotensin II inhibits rat arterial KATP channels by inhibiting steady‐state protein kinase A activity and activating protein kinase Ce
1 We used whole‐cell patch clamp to investigate steady‐state activation of ATP‐sensitive K+ channels (KATP) of rat arterial smooth muscle by protein kinase A (PKA) and the pathway by whichExpand

The effect of intracellular pH on ATP‐dependent potassium channels of frog skeletal muscle.
1. We have used patch‐clamp methods to study the effects of pH at the cytoplasmic surface of the membrane on ATP‐dependent K+ channels (KATP channels) in patches excised from frog (Rana temporaria)Expand
