  1. Effect of rooperol on collagen synthesis and cell growth.

    Iubmb Life 48(3):321 (1999) PMID 10690646

    I collagen synthesis in normal skin and lung fibroblasts and cell growth in normal and transformed fibroblasts was investigated. Low concentrations of rooperol selectively inhibited the growth of transformed cells while stimulating collagen synthesis in normal fibroblasts. Elevated collagen synthesi...
  2. Utilization of phenoxyacetic acid, by strains using either the ortho or meta cleavage of catechol during phenol degradation, after conjugal ...

    Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology 51(2):207 (1999) PMID 10091327

    The degradation of recalcitrant pollutants in contaminated soils and waters could be facilitated by broadening the degradative capabilities of indigenous microbes by the conjugal transfer of catabolic genes. The feasibility of establishing bacterial populations that degrade phenoxyacetic acid by con...
  3. Anti-tumor-promoting activities of selected pungent phenolic substances present in ginger.

    Journal of Environmental Pathology, Toxicology ... 18(2):131 (1999) PMID 15281225

    We found anti-tumor-promoting properties of [6]-gingerol and [6]-paradol. Thus, topical application of [6]-gingerol or [6]-paradol 30 min prior to 12-O-tetradecanoyl-phorbol-13-acetate (TPA) attenuated the skin papillomagenesis initiated by 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene in female ICR mice. These su...
  4. Electrochemical detection in capillary electrophoresis with dual-parallel on-capillary electrodes.

    Electrophoresis 19(12):2226 (1998) PMID 9761208

    A new approach for dual electrode electrochemical detection in capillary electrophoresis (CEEC) is described. In this approach, two identical capillaries, each containing an on-capillary electrode incorporated permanently onto its tip, were paired together for simultaneous sample injection and detec...
  5. Population pharmacodynamic modeling of levodopa in patients with Parkinson's disease receiving entacapone.

    Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics 64(1):106 (1998) PMID 9695725

    A population pharmacodynamic model for levodopa was built that took into account interindividual and intraindividual variability. The main finding was that entacapone does not alter the concentration-effect curve of levodopa, suggesting that entacapone acts at the level of peripheral pharmacokinetic...
  6. Norepinephrine metabolites in plasma as indicators of pharmacological inhibition of monoamine oxidase and catechol O-methyltransferase.

    Advances in Pharmacology 42:367 (1998) PMID 9327918

  7. Purification and characterization of a bacterial nitrophenol oxygenase which converts ortho-nitrophenol to catechol and nitrite.

    Journal of Bacteriology 170(4):1789 (1988) PMID 3350791 PMCID 211032

    A nitrophenol oxygenase which stoichiometrically converted ortho-nitrophenol (ONP) to catechol and nitrite was isolated from Pseudomonas putida B2 and purified. The substrate specificity of the enzyme was broad and included several halogen- and alkyl-substituted ONPs. The oxygenase consisted of a si...
  8. Metachromatic leukodystrophy: diagnosis with samples of venous blood.

    PMID 5668537

    Arylsulfatase A and B have been demonstrated in preparations of human leukocytes. The level of activity of arylsulfatase A is markedly decreased in the preparations from patients with metachromatic leukodystrophy. Acid phosphatase and arylsulfatase B activities were normal. The assay of arylsulfatas...
  9. [Observations in connection with the use of phenylmercuripyrocatechol].

    Zentralblatt fur Arbeitsmedizin und Arbeitsschutz 7(1):9 (1957) PMID 13423609

  10. Studies in detoxication. 51. The determination of catechols in urine, and the formation of catechols in rabbits receiving halogenobenzenes a...

    Biochemical Journal 55(1):146 (1953) PMID 13093631 PMCID 1269148
