Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome: phenotypic extreme with minimal clinical findings.
It is suggested that cases of mild SLO remain undiagnosed and untreated, and that awareness of this common cause of mental retardation is low. Expand
Neutralization of Latrodectus mactans and L. hesperus Venom by Redback Spider (L. hasseltii) Antivenom
The hypothesis that red-back antivenom would be effective in the treatment of latrodectism in humans caused by the two clinically relevant species of North American widow spiders is generated. Expand
The Biogenetic Anatomy of Vitamin B6
It is shown by incorporation experiments with 13C bond-labeled substrates, followed by analysis by means of 13C NMR spectroscopy, that two compounds, 1-deoxy-D-xylulose (12) and 4-hydroxy-L-threonineExpand
Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome: a treatable inherited error of metabolism causing mental retardation.
Increased awareness of Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome is needed to identify affected patients so that they and their families can benefit from appropriate treatment and genetic counselling. Expand
Australian Tiger Snake (Notechis scutatus) and Mexican Coral Snake (Micruris species) Antivenoms Prevent Death from United States Coral Snake (Micrurus fulvius fulvius) Venom in a Mouse Model
Mexican Micrurus antivenom and Australian Notechis antivenoms provide protection from lethality in mice envenomated with a United States M. fulvius venom. Expand
Growth response to 4‐hydroxy‐l‐threonine of Escherichia coli mutants blocked in vitamin B6 biosynthesis
Mutants of Escherichia coli which are blocked in the biosynthesis of pyridoxol (vitamin B6) showed a growth response to 4‐hydroxy‐l‐threonine, and 1‐Aminopropan‐2,3‐diol, the decarboxylation product of 4‐Hydroxy‐anine, does not support the growth of these mutants. Expand
Biosynthesis of vitamin B 6 .
4-Hydroxy-L-threonine, a committed precursor of pyridoxol (vitamin B6)
Having established in an earlier experiment that, in Escherichia coli, 4-hydroxy-L-threonine [(2S,3S)-2-amino-3,4-dihydroxybutanoic acid] lies on the route from glucose to vitamin B6, it is nowExpand
A selective and sensitive assay for urinary metanephrine and normetanephrine using gas chromatography mass spectrometry with selected ion monitoring.
The overall reproducibility of the sample processing methodology and instrumentation was assessed by replicate analyses of the same urine sample over a period of several weeks; the coefficient of variation was +/- 2.5% (n = 8). Expand
