Strigolactones, phytohormones with diverse signaling activities, have a common structure consisting of two lactones connected by an enol-ether bridge. Strigolactones derive from carotenoids via a pathway involving the carotenoid cleavage dioxygenases 7 and 8 (CCD7 and CCD8) and the iron-binding protein D27. We show that D27 is a β-carotene isomerase that(More)
We compared in vitro 1H magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) measurements of rat brain extracts (rats: 2-56 days old) with chromatographic measurements and in a further step also with results of in vitro MRS. The following substances can be reliably measured in brain extracts by in vitro MRS: N-acetylaspartate (NAA), total creatine (Cr),(More)
Phosphomonoesters were measured in the developing rat brain by in vivo and in vitro 31P nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and by classical biochemical methods. In vitro NMR showed that the main component of the phosphomonoester peak is phosphorylethanolamine. Phosphomonoesters measured by in vivo NMR decreased during development at the same rate(More)
Postmortem decomposition of brain tissue was investigated by (1)H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) in a sheep head model and selected human cases. Aiming at the eventual estimation of postmortem intervals in forensic medicine, this study focuses on the characterization and identification of newly observed metabolites. In situ single-voxel (1)H-MRS at(More)
We present a new pulse sequence that detects simultaneously (n)J(C,H) and 2J(C,H) connectivities. The corresponding coherences are created along independent pathways and therefore can be separated into two different subspectra. One spectrum is to show all (n)J(C,H) connectivities and the other is to show exclusively 2J(C,H) connectivities. In contrast to(More)
