Monolayer cultures of rat hepatocytes have been examined for their ability to secrete ethanolamine plasmalogen as a component of nascent lipoproteins. In culture medium from these cells, ethanolamine plasmalogen comprises approx. 20-30% of total ethanolamine glycerophospholipids when measured either as...

The alkanolamine 2-aminoethanol (NH(2)CH(2)CH(2)OH), otherwise known as monoethanolamine (MEA), is a widely used solvent for carbon capture, yet relatively little is known about its atmospheric chemistry. The hydroxyl radical initiated oxidation of MEA is thought to predominantly form the α-aminoalkyl...

Concentrations of putative neuroactive substances glutamate, aspartate, gamma-aminobutyric acid, glycine, proline and ethanolamine were determined in ventricular cerebrospinal fluid collected in patients suffering from Parkinson's disease, pain syndromes or cerebellar tremor. Values are similar to those given in the literature...

Evaluation of kinetic distribution and behaviors of nanoparticles in vivo provides crucial clues into their roles in living organisms. Extracellular vesicles are evolutionary conserved nanoparticles, known to play important biological functions in intercellular, inter-species, and inter-kingdom communication. In this study...
