Liquid-state NMR spectroscopy was used to follow the compositional changes in mango juice during ripening, whereas MAS and HR-MAS techniques enabled resolved (13)C and (1)H NMR spectra of mango pulps to be recorded. Spectral assignment enabled the identification of several organic acids, amino acids, and other minor components, and the ...

Cellulose-based composite materials containing xyloglucans or mannan-based polysaccharides have been shown to possess organisational features with many characteristics similar to primary plant cell walls. We have tested the effects of a typical alpha-expansin (CsExp1) on these composites using two different mechanical assays. We show that CsExp1 induces very rapid extension ...

Cultures of the marine dinoflagellate Gyrodinium dorsum have been exposed to polychromatic radiation (photosynthetically active radiation and UV) from a solar simulator for up to 72 h. Different irradiance spectra in the ultraviolet are produced by inserting cut-off filters between lamp and samples. The mycosporine-like amino acid (MAA) content and ...

Lipoarabinomannans are well characterised lipoglycans present in the cell envelopes of mycobacteria and closely related bacteria. To define further the distribution of these lipoglycans we have investigated the mycolic acid-containing bacterium Gordonia rubropertincta and, by analysis of carbohydrate composition and antigenic cross-reactivity, demonstrated the presence of a lipoarabinomannan-like lipoglycan. A ...

Despite being the most intensively studied part of the hepatitis C virus genome, our understanding of the function of the hypervariable region (HVR) at the NH2-terminus of the E2 protein remains very limited. During chronic infection the HVR usually changes over time, with changes usually mirrored by those of HVR-specific ...

The release of biocides (benzoic, sorbic and boric acids) incorporated into modified silica films was investigated with respect to composite structure. The liberation rates of the embedded acids are proportional to the biocide-to-silica ratio and are changed by adding soluble polymers such as hydroxypropylcellulose. The rates of liberation correlate with ...

Flash pyrolysis-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry was used to assess the chemical composition of the head louse's nit sheath. The pyrolyzate of the female insect's secretions, which form a cement-like cylinder holding the egg onto the hair, is dominated by amino acid derivatives and fatty acids. No chitin-specific compounds were detected in ...

The pair-coupled amino acid composition is introduced to predict the secondary structure contents of a protein. Compared with the existing methods all based on singlewise amino acid composition as defined in a 20D (dimensional) space, this represents a step forward to the consideration of the sequence coupling effect. The test ...

Many malarial antigens contain extensive arrays of tandemly repeated short amino acid sequences, and much of the antibody response induced by malaria infections is directed against these repeats. Indeed, it has been hypothesized that these repeats function to elicit a relatively ineffective T-cell-independent antibody response by the host. In order ...

Three sulphur-amino acids, taurine, hypotaurine and thiotaurine, are shown to exist in deep-sea symbiotic mussels. Their relative and absolute importance differs in the three species of mussels studied and seems to be related to the metabolism of the symbionts. Thiotaurine only occurs in high concentration in thiotrophic species, whereas hypotaurine ...

The effects of 21 amino acids on sister-chromatid exchanges (SCEs) in human lymphocytes were investigated. Addition of each of the 21 amino acids, originally in a composition of the culture medium RPMI 1640, at three different concentrations (10 micrograms/ml, 50 micrograms/ml and 100 micrograms/ml) caused a dose-independent increase in SCE ...

Cellular fatty acid composition of 100 different filamentous fungi, including oomycetes, zygomycetes, ascomycetes, basidiomycetes, and sterile mycelia, was analyzed to determine if they can be differentiated from one another on this basis and how minor variations in culture temperature and age affect this characteristic. Many fungi were found to possess ...
