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)
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)
