    Notes: Summary Programmed-cell-death events in the tapetum of two angiosperms (Lobivia rauschii Zecher andTillandsia albida Mez et Purpus) are described by ultrastructural methods. Tapetum degradation appears to be a type of programmed cell death, with the cellular remnants necessary for pollen development, acting as products of holocrine secretion. Diagnostic features of apoptosis during tapetum development are: general shrinkage of the whole cell and the nuclei; condensation of the chromatin at the periphery of the internal nuclear membrane; the enlargement of the endoplasmicreticulum cisternae to circumscribe portions of the cytoplasm; the persistence of mitochondria together with microfilament bundles until the last stages of tapetal degeneration.

    Notes: Summary If X is a Hilbert space and V is a subspace, given x ε X/V the best approximation IIv(x) to x from V can be constructed in the following way: we consider a ball Br centered at x and intersecting V, then we take the (Chebyshev) center of Br ∩ V. In Banach spaces the centers in V of Br ∩ V (which depend on r) are related to a different map of « approximation ». Here we introduce the notions of « sheltered point » and « shelter » of a bounded set, and we obtain in Banach spaces information about IIv(x) starting from the shelter of Br ∩ V. The notion of sheltered point turns out to be of some interest by itself, since translates problems of simultaneous worst approximation.

    Notes: Abstract We study 1-complemented subspaces of the sequence spaces ℓ1 andc 0. In ℓ1, 1-complemented subspaces of codimensionn are those which can be obtained as intersection ofn 1-complemented hyperplanes. Inc 0, we prove a characterization of 1-complemented subspaces of finite codimension in terms of intersection of hyperplanes.

    Topics: Chemistry and Pharmacology
    Notes: Summary The adamantane moiety was introduced in the tachykinin NK2 receptor-selective agonist [β-Ala8]-NKA(4–10) (H-Asp-Ser-Phe-Val-β-Ala-Leu-Met-NH2, MEN 10210) and in different positions of the NK2 receptor antagonist MEN 10376 (H-Asp-Tyr-d-Trp-Val-d-Trp-d-Trp-Lys-NH2) in order to investigate how this substitution affects their biological activity at tachykinin NK1, NK2 and NK3 receptors. 1-Adamantaneacetic acid (1-Ada-CH2COOH) was directly conjugated in the solid phase as the preformed OBt active ester to the N-terminal position of MEN 10210, obtaining MEN 10586 (1-Ada-CH2CO-Asp-Ser-Phe-Val-β-Ala-Leu-Met-NH2). The Pfp ester of adamantaneacetic acid (1) was prepared and used for the acylation of the N-terminal position of MEN 10376, yielding MEN 10606 (1-Ada-CH2CO-Asp-Tyr-d-Trp-Val-d-Trp-d-Trp-Lys-NH2). Compound 1 was then used to obtain the building block Fmoc-Lys(1-Ada-CH2CO)-OH as a modified amino acid for the synthesis of MEN 10818 [H-Asp-Tyr-d-Trp-Val-d-Trp-d-Trp-Lys(1-Ada-CH2CO)-NH2]. In order to investigate the biological activity of the peptide bearing the adamantane group together with the free N-terminal amino function, we synthesised MEN 10676 [H-Asp(O-2-Ada)-Tyr-d-Trp-Val-d-Trp-d-Trp-Lys-NH2] using Fmoc-Asp(O-2-Ada)-OH, in which 2-adamantanole was the protecting group of the aspartate β-COOH moiety during the peptide synthesis and survived the final peptide cleavage and deprotection carried out under controlled conditions. MEN 10586 showed an agonist activity comparable to that of the parent compound MEN 10210 at NK1 and NK2 receptors of guinea pig ileum, rabbit isolated pulmonary artery and hamster isolated trachea preparations, while it showed a 25-fold higher agonist activity at NK3 receptors of rat isolated portal vein. The three modified antagonist analogs displayed similar or reduced affinity at NK1, NK2 and NK3 receptors as compared to MEN 10376. The drop was particularly evident (〉2 log units) at the NK2 receptors of the rabbit isolated pulmonay artery.

    Notes: It is well known that colloidal powder particles (between 1 mm and 0.001 mm) tend to agglomerate due to electrostatic forces. Then assuring an optimal dispersion condition is essential for good particle-size analysis results, since aggregates or weak agglomerates can be measured as single particles. In this paper the particle size distribution of an alumina powder A1000SG (ALCOA) was measured using distinct dispersion procedures. Distilled water was used as dispersant liquid in the pure state and with additives (citric acid and Duramax D-3005). Dispersion by supersonic vibration was also investigated, but only the application time was varied. Particle size analysis was accomplished by laser scattering technique and the dispersion condition was evaluated through zeta potential. The results showed that the Duramax’s electrosteric impediment is more efficient than citric acid’s electrostatic force, thereby providing better dispersion. Although useful, the supersonic vibration was not good enough to assure an optimal dispersion, at least for the material tested here

    Topics: Chemistry and Pharmacology
    Notes: Abstract We previously demonstrated that the lipopeptide of the myelin basic protein (MBP) immunodominant epitope in Lewis rat Palm-GpMBP(74–85) (Gp: guinea pig), which induced experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis in vivo strongly increased the T cell proliferative response in vitro. We extended this study to the human immunodominant epitope hMBP(83–99), synthesizing different lipophilic peptides bearing a hydrophobic chain linked through an amide or a C-C bond. To this aim, we developed a synthetic pathway for (±)-N-Fmoc-Ahd-OH (Ahd: 2-aminohexadecanoic acid) which was used to synthesize diastereomeric peptides which were successfully separated by reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography. MBP-specific T cell lines recognizing the immunodominant epitope hMBP(83–99) have been generated from patients affected by multiple sclerosis. Their proliferative response to the native peptide and to some lipoderivatives has been investigated. In contrast to the animal model, none of the investigated lipopeptides exhibited ‘superagonist’ activity.

    Topics: Energy, Environment Protection, Nuclear Power Engineering
    Notes: Abstract Column experiments have been extensively used in transport studies of major cations but few investigations are available on migration through soils of strongly retained species that are environmentally relevant (like heavy metals). By presenting some selected experiments (lead and proton step-breakthrough tests in different conditions), this study shows that the soil-column technique is also applicable in the case of species which exhibit very large retention factors. The use of very small soil columns (about 0.4 mL of pore volumes) combined with relatively high flow rates (0.1–0.3 mL min-1 ) allows to observe the entire breakthrough curve (adsorption and desorption front up to 5000 pore volumes) in reasonable experimental time, in reproducible conditions and without experimental drawbacks. In the adopted experimental conditions no kinetic effects, related to diffuse transport and sorption reaction were recognized; moreover, Peclet number was higher than 60. Consequently, it was possible to calculate the equilibrium isotherms from the diffuse fronts of the breakthrough. Knowledge that can be derived, concerning the reversibility of the adsorption process, the influence of complexation on the adsorption, the kinetics of complex formation, and the effect of dissolution on proton transport, is also discussed.
