Two types of indoleacetic acid (IAA) antigens have been described in the literature which show marked differences with respect to antibody specificity. In this communication an alternative antigen design is described. In the so-called IAA-C5-BSA conjugate, both the acetic acid group and the pyrrole moiety are presented free, as the covalent linkage between(More)
Vanadate (Na(3) VO(4)) inhibits leaf movement and stomatal conductance of Phaseolus vulgaris L. cv. Carlos Favorit in light-dark cycles as well as photomorphogenetic leaf unrolling of Hordeum vulgare L. cv. Rupal. Inhibition was 50% by 10 to 100 micromolar vanadate and 100% by millimolar vanadate. Leaf unrolling was also inhibited by oligomycin and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Resistance to fluoroquinolones and cephalosporins is a major problem with Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi and Paratyphi. An accurate determination of antibiotic susceptibility requires tests for minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of antibiotics. We describe a simple broth-disk method to determine the MIC of ceftriaxone on S.(More)
A cyclic AMP antigen was prepared utilizing a stable thioether linkage from C8 of the purine moiety. Monoclonal antibodies were raised toward the cyclic AMP-C8-diphtheria toxoid antigen and found to be of high specificity, with only very low cross-reactivity against related compounds, less than 0.03% against cGMP being the most significant cross-reaction.(More)
