Stable inheritance of the transgene, consistent expression and competitive agronomic properties of transgenic crops are important parameters for successful use of the latter. These properties have been analyzed with 18 homozygous transgenic barley lines of the cultivar Golden Promise. The lines originated from three independent primary transformants(More)
Terephthalic acid at 20 mg/kg/day in lowered serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels in rats. The cholesterol content was lowered in the lipoprotein fractions. The effects of the agents on de novo lipid synthesis showed that similar enzymes were affected in rat liver and small intestinal mucosa cells as when compared to in vitro tissue culture cells from(More)
A series of 2-benzoyl-4,4-dialkyl-3,5-isoxazolidinediones proved to have potent hypolipidemic activity, lowering both serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels at 10 or 20 mg/kg/day, IP and orally in rodents. 2-(3,4,5-Trimethoxybenzoyl)-4,4-diethyl-3,5-isoxazolidinedione (4) afforded the best hypolipidemic activity lowering normolipidemic CFl mouse serum(More)
The discovery of electrochemiluminescence (ECL) and its development as a means of detection is truly a success story. Although studies describing ECL were published in the early 1960s, most studies using ECL as a means of detection were not widely published until the mid 1990s. Incorporating ECL into assays provides increased sensitivity, several logs of(More)
The semicarbazones, thiosemicarbazones and acetyl-hydrazones of phthalimide, o-benzosulfimide, naphthalimide and diphenimide demonstrated potent cytotoxicity against murine and human leukemia cell growth and cultured cell growth from human solid tumors. The major site of inhibition in L1210 leukemia cells was DNA synthesis after 60 min incubated with the(More)
N-Substituted indan-1.3-diones have proven to be potent cytotoxic agents effective against the growth of single cell leukemia tumors and cell lines derived from solid tumors. A number of the derivatives were active against growth of solid tumors e.g. colon, lung bronchogenic and osteosarcoma for which few effective agents are available to inhibit their(More)
2,3-Dihydrophthalazine-1,4-dione derivatives demonstrated potent cytotoxicity against the growth of murine leukemia cells and human single cell suspension, i.e. Tmolt3 leukemia and HeLa-S3, as well as colon adenocarcinoma and KB nasopharynx. However, only select compounds demonstrated activity against bronchogenic lung, osteosarcoma and glioma growth.(More)
Boron analogues of carbamoylcholine and thiocholine and esters of these analogues were prepared. These compounds were fairly stable toward hydrolysis and demonstrated moderate anti-inflammatory and hypolipidemic activities in mice. The hypolipidemic activity of the compounds at a dose of 8 mg/kg/day was equivalent in reducing lipid levels in serum to those(More)
A series of amine carboxyboranes including their amides and esters were synthesized and shown to have potent hypolipidemic activity in rodents at 20 mg/kg/day. Ethylamine carboxyborane, di-n-propylamine-carboxyborane, trimethylamine-carbomethoxyborane, n-butylamine carbomethoxyborane, methylamine-N-ethyl carbamoylborane and trimethylamine-N-n-octyl(More)
The amine-cyanoboranes, the amine-cyanoalkylboranes and the aminomethyl-phosphonate-N-cyanoborane adducts proved to be active antineoplastic agents. These compounds were more effective against single cell cultured cell growth rather than solid tumors. The following amine-cyanoboranes, (CH3)2(C18H37)NBH2CN (5), (CH3)2NHBH[CH(CH3)2]CN (7) and(More)
