Evidence for an anomalous microbial oxidation of acetophenone : new access to optically active tricarbonyliron complexes
Oxidation of acetophenone by Pseudomonas putida afforded an unusual monohydroxy product, identified by conversion into the corresponding tricarbonyliron complex, and shown by circular dichroism (CD)
The Application of Dioxygenase-Based Chemoenzymatic Processes to the Total Synthesis of Natural Products.
This mini-review describes the exploitation of certain enzymatically-derived, readily accessible, and enantiomerically pure cis-1,2-dihydrocatechols as starting materials in the chemical synthesis of

Plant Constituents biologically Active to Insects. I. Feeding Stimulants for the Larvae of the Yellow Butterfly, Eurema hecabe mandarina. (1)
Biting responses were obtained in the larvae of the yellow butterfly, Eurema hecabe mandarina DE L'ORZA, to four chemical constituents of their host plant, Lespedeza cuneata G. DON, namely,
Inositol trisphosphate, a novel second messenger in cellular signal transduction
Diacylglycerol operates within the plane of the membrane to activate protein kinase C, whereas inositol trisphosphate is released into the cytoplasm to function as a second messenger for mobilizing intracellular calcium.
