Pseudomonas veronii MEK700 was isolated from a biotrickling filter cleaning 2-butanone-loaded waste air. The strain is able to grow on 2-butanone and 2-hexanol. The genes for degradation of short chain alkyl methyl ketones were identified by transposon mutagenesis using a...

In order to study the mechanisms of acute n-hexane intoxication, the effects of n-hexane and its metabolites 2-hexanol, methyl-n-butyl ketone, 2,5-hexanediol and 2,5-hexanedione on the cloned voltage-operated potassium channels Kv1.1, Kv1.4, Kv2.1 and Kv3.4 were investigated with electrophysiological techniques in...

1. The role of skeletal muscle microsomes as a site of extrahepatic xenobiotic metabolism using n-hexane as a model substrate was investigated. The observed cytochrome P450-dependent metabolism was compared with that found with liver, and brain microsomal fractions. 2. Rat...

Since n-hexane metabolites are excreted as glucuronide conjugates, most conventional analytical procedures require preliminary hydrolysis, yielding to the 'total' 2,5-hexanedione (2,5-HD), but also giving rise to a number of artifacts. The whole pattern of n-hexane metabolites, both conjugated and unconjugated...

An expression profile of genes induced by non-pathogenic Alternaria alternata on rough lemon leaves was obtained by sequencing 500 subtractive PCR clones generated from mRNA of leaves inoculated with the fungus after subtraction with that of non-inoculated leaves. About 6%...
