Infrared-Spectroscopic Study of (4-Methylpent-3-en-1-ynyl)methylthiocarbene, Its Photochemical Transformations, and Reactions in an Argon Matrix.

The first representative of singlet carbenes bearing both ethynyl and methylthio groups at the carbene center, (4-methylpent-3-en-1-ynyl)methylthiocarbene, has been generated in a low-temperature Ar matrix upon UV photolysis of 3,3-dimethyl-5-methylthioethynyl-3H-pyrazole and detected by FTIR spectroscopy. The generation of the carbene proceeds via intermediate (3-diazo-5-methylhex-4-en-1-ynyl)methylsulfane. The comparison of FTIR spectroscopy data with the results of quantum…

A hypothesis: Fructosamine-3-Kinase-Related-Protein (FN3KRP) catalyzes deglycation of Maillard intermediates directly downstream from fructosamines

Non-enzymatic glycation (a.k.a. Maillard reaction) is a series of random spontaneous reactions between reducing sugars and amines resulting in the formation of irreversible Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGE’s). In food chemistry, this process is beneficial by contributing to flavor, aroma, texture and appearance of cooked foods. In vivo, however, Maillard reaction is deleterious because uncontrolled modification…

Morphology of the mandibular gland of the ant Paraponera clavata

The ant Paraponera clavata (Fabricius, 1775) is the only extant species of Paraponerinae and is widely distributed in Brazilian forests. Aspects of its biology are documented extensively in the literature; however, knowledge of P. clavata internal morphology, specifically of exocrine glands, is restricted to the venom apparatus. The objective of this study was to describe…

Effect of cyanide ions (CN-) extracted from cassava (Manihotesculenta Crantz) on Alveolar Epithelial Cells (A549 cells)

Cassava (Manihotesculenta Crantz) is likely one of the most essential root crops in tropical nations. It’s a main supply of cyanogenic glycosides viz. linamarin and lotaustralin, and these on breakdown liberate HCN and ketone. Cassava cyanide extract (CCE) from cassava leaves and tuber rinds have been formulated as a biopesticide towards sure borer insect pests…
