Because the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) does not provide a statutory definition of functional foods, the Food and Drug Administration has no authority to establish a formal regulatory category for such foods. The primary determinant of the regulatory status of a food is its intended use, which ...

As a generator-produced beta-emitting radionuclide, the importance of 188Re for radionuclide therapy is increasing rapidly. We prepared 188Re-tin colloid and compared its properties with 188Re-sulfur colloid. Labeling efficiencies reached >98% for tin colloid at 2 h and 89-94% for sulfur colloid at 3 h. All the preparations were stable for ...

Hairy roots of Ajuga reptans var. atropurpurea produce clerosterol, 22-dehydroclerosterol, and cholesterol as sterol constituents, and 20-hydroxyecdysone, cyasterone, isocyasterone, and 29-norcyasterone as ecdysteroid constituents. To better understand the biosynthesis of these steroidal compounds, we carried out feeding studies of variously 2H- and 13C-labeled sterol substrates with Ajuga hairy roots. In ...

Covert food stealing is common among individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome. We found that verbal reprimands, delivered contingent upon eating prohibited foods, were sufficient to decrease the food stealing of a girl with Prader-Willi syndrome. Warning stimuli were then used to help her discriminate between permitted and prohibited foods during sessions ...

Recently, we have shown that tetrapeptides can be efficiently labelled with technetium-99m by direct labelling at alkaline pH. Tetrapeptides can be considered derivatives of mercaptoacetyltriglycine (MAG3) in which the mercaptoacetyl moiety is replaced by an amino acid residue. In view of the interesting biological properties of some C-methyl substituted derivatives ...

Nephrocytes are cells involved in the metabolism of hemolymph components and are characterized by peripheral finger-like projections bordering a labyrinthine channel system. The antibacterial protein lysozyme was localized in anterior and pericardial nephrocytes of the harvestman, Leiobunum rotundum, by biochemical and immuno-gold postembedding-labelling techniques. Lysozyme-activity was demonstrated in experimental animals, ...

3JCP coupling constants have been measured in a 99% 13C,15N labeled lead-dependent ribozyme, known as the leadzyme. These coupling constants were determined by analysis of the intensity of individual crosspeaks in a spin-echo difference constant time HSQC experiment. This procedure permits improved measurement of the 3JC2'P and 3JC4'P coupling constants ...
