This paper describes an extension of the Point of Collapse method developed for ac systems studies to the determination of saddle-node bifurcations in power systems including high voltage direct current HVDC transmission. Bus voltage prooles are illustrated for an accdc test system, which signiicantly diier from the prooles of pure ac systems for typical(More)
Five chemically modified heparins were derived from native pig mucosal heparin (pig heparin Is). These were de-N-sulphated heparin (heparin IH), N-acetylheparin (heparin IA), de-N/O-sulphated heparin (heparin IVH), de-O-sulphated heparin (heparin IVs) and de-O-sulphated N-acetyl-heparin (heparin IVA). Their structures were studied by 13C-NMR spectroscopy at(More)
Porphyran, a highly substituted agarose from Porphyra umbilicalis was degraded by highly purified beta-agarase I from Pseudomonas atlantica. This enzyme cleaved at the reducing side of units of beta-neoagarobiose (3,6-anhydro-alpha-L-galactopyranosyl-(1 leads to 3)-beta-D-galactopyranose). The oligosaccharides were divided into fractions of low and high(More)
The glycosulphatase which hydrolyses the 2-O-sulphate of the disaccharide, 4-deoxy-2-O-sulphato-alpha-L-threohex-4-enopyranosyl uronic acid-(1----4)-2-deoxy-2-sulphamido-6-O-sulphato-D-glucose (delta UA-2S----GlcNS-6S), has been isolated from the soluble fraction of disrupted Flavobacterium heparinum. The activity was purified 3300-fold by chromatography on(More)
The agarose-degrading system of Pseudomonas atlantica has been re-examined. In addition to the previously reported extracellular endo-beta-agarase [Yaphe, W. (1966) in Proceedings 5th International Seaweed Symposium, pp. 333-335] a second, membrane-bound endo-enzyme activity, beta-agarase II has been discovered. These two enzymes act in concert to degrade(More)
To assess the development of subsensitivity to antihistamines, titrated prick skin test (PSTs) were performed to seven fivefold dilutions of histamine and either morphine or antigen at specific intervals during therapy. Ten subjects received chlorpheniramine, 24 mg per day, and placebo in a double-blind crossover study. Total wheal area was measured at(More)
Heparin, in a concentration-dependent manner, inhibited the generation of conjugated dienes and thiobarbituric acid-positive substances when incubated with Fe2+ and gamma-linolenic acid. In the conjugated diene assay, other glycosaminoglycans, on a molar basis calculated with respect to their respective hydrated disaccharide repeat units, were less(More)
