The Chemistry of Sexual Deception in an Orchid-Wasp Pollination System
The “sexually deceptive” orchid Chiloglottis trapeziformis attracts males of its pollinator species, the thynnine wasp Neozeleboria cryptoides, by emitting a unique volatile compound,Expand
Naphthalene Degradation and Incorporation of Naphthalene-Derived Carbon into Biomass by the ThermophileBacillus thermoleovorans
ABSTRACT The thermophilic aerobic bacterium Bacillus thermoleovorans Hamburg 2 grows at 60°C on naphthalene as the sole source of carbon and energy. In batch cultures, an effective substrateExpand
Cuticular Hydrocarbons and Aggression in the Termite Macrotermes Subhyalinus
TLDR
It is found that no single compound is sufficient to explain variation in aggression between pairings of colonies, and termites seem to use a bouquet of compounds. Expand
Occurrence of diclofenac and its metabolites in surface water and effluent samples from Karachi, Pakistan.
TLDR
The hydroxy derivatives seem to reflect human excretions via household wastewater, while the chlorocarbazole derivative is related to abiotic photolytic transformation of diclofenac. Expand
Identification of Fungal Sphingolipid C9-methyltransferases by Phylogenetic Profiling*
TLDR
A bioinformatics strategy was developed to identify the gene responsible for the biosynthesis of this C9-methyl group in fungal glucosylceramides and showed highest sequence similarity to plant and bacterial cyclopropane fatty acid synthases. Expand
Identification and Characterization of a Sphingolipid Δ4-Desaturase Family*
TLDR
It is suggested that Δ4-desaturated sphingolipids provide an early signal necessary to trigger the entry into both meiotic and spermatid differentiation pathways during Drosophila sperMatogenesis. Expand
Organic compounds as contaminants of the Elbe River and its tributaries
GC/MS non target screening has been applied to water samples taken during 1992–1994 from the Elbe river and its tributaries Mulde, Saale, Weiße Elster, Schwarze Elster, and Havel. Based on full scanExpand
Identification and characterization of a sphingolipid delta 4-desaturase family.
TLDR
It is suggested that Delta4-desaturated sphingolipids provide an early signal necessary to trigger the entry into both meiotic and spermatid differentiation pathways during Drosophila sperMatogenesis. Expand
Are glucocerebrosides the predominant sphingolipids in plant plasma membranes?
TLDR
The fraction of unidentified complex sphingolipids, containing mainly 8E-phytosphingenine, exceeds the cerebroside proportion in PMs by several factors and may be as abundant as diacylglycerol-based phospholIPids. Expand
The distribution of nitrobenzene and other nitroaromatic compounds in the North Sea
Abstract An analytical approach is presented that allows quantification of nitroaromatics below ng l −1 (ppt) levels by fluid-fluid extraction and subsequent GC-AFID detection. Nitrobenzene,Expand
