Growth and survival of juvenile pipefish (Stigmatopora argus) fed live copepods with high and low HUFA content
Overall survival was 99%, indicating that copepods were a suitable diet for juvenile pipefish, and the possibility of paternal HUFA investment in the zygotes during brooding is discussed. Expand
Separation and identification of triximenynin from Santalum spicatum R. Br.
Seed lipids of Western Australian sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) were separated using preparative thin-layer chromatography. The oil contains about 49% oleic acid and about 40% ximenynic acid. TheExpand
Separation and identification of ximenynic acid isomers in the seed oil ofSantalum spicatum R.Br. as their 4,4-dimethyloxazoline derivatives
The seed oil ofSantalum spicatum contains a significant amount of ximenynic acid,trans-11-octadecen-9-ynoic acid, a long-chain acetylenic fatty acid, as a major component (34%). The identityExpand
Fatty acid composition of lipids from the contents of rock lobster (Panulirus cygnus) cephalothorax
The contents of rock lobster cephalothorax were analyzed for lipid content and fatty acid composition and the possibility of using these products as a supplement to fish and food animals’ diets is discussed. Expand
The absolute configurations of the alkaloids of Physostigma venenosum seeds *
Comparison of the optical rotatory dispersion spectra of physostigmine, Na‐norphysostIGmine, geneserine, physovenine and eseramine have shown that all five alkaloids have the same absolute configurations. Expand
Dietary sandalwood seed oil modifies fatty acid composition of mouse adipose tissue, brain, and liver
The results were interpreted to suggest that the metabolism of XMYA may involve both biohydrogenation and oxidation reactions, and the effects of SWSO as a dietary fat on the FA composition of adipose tissue, brain, and liver lipids were determined. Expand
Synthesis and evaluation of bis-dipeptide and bis-tripeptide analogs of actinomycin D
: Six-bis-dipeptide analogues of actinomycin D, all containing two threonyl-D-valine side chains, were prepared. Also two bis-tripeptide analogues containing an additional proline or oxoprolineExpand
Myricadiol and other taraxerenes from Scaevola spinescens.
Scaevola spinescens R. Br. (Goodeniaceae), a West Australian semi-arid native plant, has been found to contain a number of pentacyclic triterpenoid compounds of the taraxerene type in high yieldExpand
Antibacterial compounds from the root of the indigenous Australian medicinal plant Carissa lanceolata R.Br.
The conkerberry, Carissa lanceolata R.Br. (Apocynaceae), is commonly used by many indigenous Australian communities across Northern Australia for the treatment of a variety of conditions such asExpand
