Statins exhibit anti-leukemic properties due to suppression of the mevalonate pathway by the inhibition of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase, and subsequent depletion of cholesterol, farnesylpyrophosphate, and geranylgeranylpyrophosphate. We investigated the role of autophagy, a controlled intracellular self-digestion, in the anti-leukemic...

Conversion of leucine to isovaleric (iV) and isocaproic (iC) acids by cell-free extracts of Clostridium bifermentans was demonstrated using two lysis procedures. Sonication resulted in an extract which had the enzymes to convert leucine to alpha-ketoisocaproic acid (alpha-kiC) and thence...

Clostridium difficile intestinal infection is a major nosocomial hazard in patients receiving antimicrobial therapy. Rationale for rapid diagnosis include lifesaving antimicrobial therapy in patients with severe colitis and early isolation measures for transmission control. We have therefore analysed the sensitivity...
