The paper presents a novel approach for the determination of three cytokinin compounds, thidiazuron (TDZ), 1,3-diphenylurea (1,3-DPU) and forchlorfenuron (CPPU), in fruit and vegetables samples using liquid chromatography with electrospray ionization and time-of-flight mass spectrometry (LC-ESI-TOFMS). Analytes were extracted from...

Bacterial efflux pump systems contribute to antimicrobial resistance in pathogenic bacteria. The co-administration of bacterial efflux pump inhibitors with antibiotics is being pursued to overcome efflux-mediated resistance to antibiotics. In this study we investigated a strategy for converting broad-spectrum efflux...
