Induction of Interferons (IFNs) and Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) in Mice by a Novel Glycolipid Trehalose 2,3,6′‐Trimycolate from Rhodococcus aurantiacus (Gordona aurantiaca)
The immunomodifying activity of a novel mycoloyl glycolipid, trehalose 2,3,6′‐trimycolate (GaGM), from a unique psychrophilic acid‐fast bacterium, Rhodococcus aurantiacus, was examined. ICR mice wereExpand

Assay of magnesium in serum and urine with use of only one enzyme, isocitrate dehydrogenase (NADP+).
We report a method for assaying magnesium in serum and urine involving only one enzyme, isocitrate dehydrogenase (NADP+)(EC 1.1.1.42), which requires magnesium ion for activity. The enzymaticExpand

Second-order distortion generated by amplification of intensity-modulated signals with chirping in erbium-doped fiber
A rate equation analysis for second-order distortion generated in an erbium-doped fiber amplifier is reported. It is shown that the relevant mechanism of distortion is the interaction between theExpand

Cancellation of second-order distortion of directly modulated laser in erbium-doped fiber amplifier
Experimental verification of cancellation of second-order distortion from a directly modulated laser diode by amplification in an erbium-doped fiber is demonstrated. This cancellation occurs when theExpand
