A new trisaccharide 6-0-(2-deoxy-2-(N-methyl)-hydroxylamino-beta-D- glucopyranosyl)-alpha,alpha-trehalose named lysodektose has been isolated from Micrococcus lysodeikticus. In oxygenated solutions or in the presence of K3 Fe (CN)6 lysodektose is transformed into a long lived free radical. Spin trapping data are presented and functions are suggested for the substance. 
Free Radicals in Mercury-Resistant Bacteria Indicate a Novel Metabolic Pathway
A mercury resistant-soil bacterium P.10.15, identified as a close relative of Pseudomonas veronii, was shown to accumulate a specific compound in the stationary phase of growth, suggested as a novel intermediate of a previously unknown basic metabolic pathway of trehalose transformation in bacteria, a potential target for antibacterial drug development.

A study of the molecular structure of bacterial lysodektose by quantum-chemical calculations and EPR spectroscopy
The standard redox potentials of the sequential oxidation of lysodektose to the corresponding nitrone were estimated by quantum chemistry methods. It follows from these estimates that theExpand
Interaction of bacteria with mercuric compounds
Under stress conditions induced by lowering pH or generation of active oxygen species, the bacteria and, especially, their mutants with enhanced sensitivity to oxidative stress, were found to respond to exposure to 1–3 μ/ml HgCl2 andp-chloromercuribenzoate by a several-fold increase in their viability.

Molecular Biology of Osmoregulation
The molecular biology of a new class of genes, called osm (osmotic tolerance) genes, that protect bacteria like Escherichia coli against osmotic stress and may work in a similar manner in plants and animals are concerned. Expand

Prediction of anti and gauche vicinal proton‐proton coupling constants in carbohydrates: A simple additivity rule for pyranose rings
The effect of the relative orientation and electronegativity of substituents on the magnitude of 3J(aa), 3J(ae) and 3J(ee) is well predicated by a simple set of additivity constants, valid forExpand
