Results indicate that polyisoprenoid alcohols might be involved in plant resistance against pathogens and the role of PQ in antioxidant defense in cellular membranous compartments is discussed in the context of the enzymatic antioxidant machinery activated in tobacco leaves subjected to viral infection.

It is established that plastidial AtCPT7 extends the length of GGPP to ∼55 carbons, which then accumulate in thylakoid membranes, and these polyprenols influence photosynthetic performance through their modulation of thylAKoid membrane dynamics.

New quinolines bearing a 2,2′-bithiophene motif have been prepared through Ru- and In-catalyzed reactions as well as by Suzuki cross-coupling reactions. The novel quinolines have been characterized…
Divergent pattern of polyisoprenoid alcohols in the tissues of Coluria geoides: A new electrospray lonization MS approach

- 1 September 2003
Structures of the dolichols and polyprenols isolated were confirmed by the application of a new HPLC/electrospray ionization-MS method, which also offers a much higher sensitivity in detection of these compounds compared to a UV detector.
