Fractionation of the methanol extract of Gnaphalium gaudichaudianum DC afforded one new and six known ent-pimarane diterpenes together with velutin, squalene and stigmasterol. The structure of the new compound was established on the basis of extensive 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic data interpretation. Two of the isolated compounds exhibited moderate toxicity(More)
The analysis of measurements of Electrical Bioimpedance (EBI) is on the increase for performing non-invasive assessment of health status and monitoring of pathophysiological mechanisms. EBI measurements might contain measurements artefacts that must be carefully removed prior to any further analysis. Cole model-based analysis is often selected when(More)
Peptide nucleic acid (PNA) is a synthetic analogue of DNA and RNA, developed more than a decade ago in which the naturally occurring sugar phosphate backbone has been replaced by the N-(2-aminoethyl) glycine units. Unlike DNA or RNA in the unhybridized state (single strand) which can adopt a helical structure through base-stacking, although highly flexible,(More)
Antioxidant-guided fractionation of Mammea americana L. seeds resulted in the identification of three new isoprenylated coumarins, mammea B/BA hydroxycyclo F (1), mammea E/BC (2), and mammea E/BD (3). In addition, twelve known isoprenylated coumarins, mammea A/AA (4), mammea A/AA cyclo D (5), mammea A/AA cyclo F (6), mammea A/AC cyclo D (7), mammea A/AD(More)
BACKGROUND AIMS Dendritic cells (DC) are increasingly being used as cellular vaccines to treat cancer and infectious diseases. While there have been some promising results in early clinical trials using DC-based vaccines, the inability to visualize non-invasively the location, migration and fate of cells once adoptively transferred into patients is often(More)
A 70-year-old patient who presented with a mass on the dorsum of his nose of 2 years evolution is reported. Histologically it was formed by dermal nests and cords of atypical epithelial cells surrounded by an intense inflammatory infiltrate composed of lymphocytes and histiocytes of an usual aspect. The lesion was removed, relapsing 2 years later. The(More)
This paper presents the results of an NMR spectroscopy and distance-restrained molecular dynamics (MD) study of a gamma-methylated, palindromic, 8-base pair peptide nucleic acid (gamma-PNA) duplex. The goal of this study was to examine the impact of the gamma-backbone modification on the structure of the PNA duplex. The 2D NMR information involving the(More)
Bioassay-guided fractionation of the methanolic extracts of the pulp and seeds of the fruits of Syzygium samarangense Merr. & Perry (Blume) led to the identification of four cytotoxic compounds and eight antioxidants on the basis of HPLC-PDA analysis, MS, and various NMR spectroscopic techniques. Three C-methylated chalcones,(More)
