O-methyl substituents of aromatic compounds can provide C1 growth substrates for facultative and strict anaerobic bacteria isolated from diverse environments. The mechanism of the bioconversion of methoxylated benzoic acids to the hydroxylated derivatives was investigated with a model substrate and...

The complexes [Pt(bah)2X2], [Pt(NH3)(bah)Cl2].0.5H2O, [Pt(mbah)2X2], and [Pt(NH3)(mbah)Cl2] (bah = benzoic acid hydrazide, mbah = 3-methoxybenzoic acid hydrazide; X = Cl, Br, I) have been prepared and characterized by elemental analysis, electric conductivity, IR, 1H NMR, and electronic spectra. A cis-square...

We determined the effect of 3-methoxybenzamide (3-MB), a competitive inhibitor of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (E.C., on intrachromosomal homologous recombination in mouse Ltk- cells. We used a cell line that contained in its genome two defective Herpes thymidine kinase (tk) genes...

[reaction: see text] If employed in THF at 0 degrees C, LTMP metalates meta-anisic acid at the doubly activated position. In contrast, n-BuLi/t-BuOK deprotonates position C-4 preferentially at low temperature. Functionalization at C-6 requires protection of the C-2 site beforehand....

In mouse fibroblasts stimulated from quiescence into proliferation by serum the induction of expression of the c-myc proto-oncogene is strongly stimulated by 3-methoxybenzamide. Similar superinduction effects are seen with related compounds such as 3-aminobenzamide and the acid analogues, 3-anisic acid...
