Conversion of [19-2H2]fusicocca-2,10(14)-diene into its 8β-ol and fusicoccins by Phomopsis (Fusicoccum) amygdali
Abstract Feeding experiments of (+)-[19-2H2]fusicocca-2,10(14)-diene, a deuterated derivative of a new candidate for the initially-forming fusicoccane-hydrocarbon in the fusicoccin biosynthesis, withExpand

Telomerase activity in peripheral blood mononuclear cells from patients with SLE
Telomerase is a reverse transcriptase that adds the telomeric sequence to the terminal of chromosomes, prevents shortening of telomere, and maintains the complete telomeric structure.1It has beenExpand

Transformation of fusicocca-2,10(14)-dien-8β-ol into fusicoccin J by the fusicoccin-producing fungus, Phomopsis (Fusicoccum) amygdali. Support for the intermediacy of fusicocca-2,10(14)-diene in the
(+)-Fusicocca-2,10(14)-diene, isolated recently by the authors, is most likely a genuine hydrocarbon intermediate in the biosynthesis of fusicoccin, as its 8β-hydroxy derivative is smoothly andExpand
