The techniques of transmission electron microscopy (TEM), including ultrastructural myeloperoxidase cytochemistry (MPO), and immunological marker analysis, have been used to classify 58 "difficult" cases of acute leukemia where a precise diagnosis could not be made on the basis of conventional light microscopy and cytochemistry. TEM with MPO proved most(More)
BACKGROUND The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a 3-tier grading system (Grades 1-3) for follicular lymphomas (FLs) based on the absolute number of centroblasts per high-power microscopic field (HPF) in 10 neoplastic follicles. Grades 1 and 2 FL are still managed as indolent FLs, whereas Grade 3 FL is thought to behave more aggressively. In this(More)
Isoschaftoside, an allelopathic di-C-glycosylflavone from Desmodium spp. root exudates, is biosynthesised through sequential glucosylation and arabinosylation of 2-hydroxynaringenin with UDP-glucose and UDP-arabinose. Complete conversion to the flavone requires chemical dehydration implying a dehydratase enzyme has a role in vivo to complete the(More)
Peafowl, like other vertebrates, contain multiple forms of lactate dehydrogenase. The electrophoretic properties of the peafowl isoenzymes are unusual in that the isoenzyme from heart tissue can be either more or less anodic than that of muscle, depending on the pH. This finding focuses attention on the problem of isoenzyme identification. It is suggested(More)
