Identification and electrophysiological activity of a novel hydroxy ketone emitted by male cereal leaf beetles

, : Identification and electrophysiological activity of a novel hydroxy ketone emitted by male cereal leaf beetles. Journal of Natural Products 65(8): 1156-1160

Comparisons of collections of volatiles from male and female Oulema melanopus, feeding on host foliage (oats), revealed an electrophysiologically active male-specific compound, (E)-8-hydroxy-6-methyl-6-octen-3-one (compound 7), which is a new natural product. The structure of compound 7 was elucidated by spectroscopic and microchemical studies and confirmed by chemical synthesis.

Recent data have suggested that rectal indomethacin can also reduce the incidence of post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography pancreatitis (PEP). The aim of this study was to determine whether prophylactic rectal indomethacin with PD st...

Degenerative spondylolisthesis has been well described as a disorder of the lumbar spine. Few authors have suggested that a similar disorder occurs in the cervical spine. To our knowledge, the present study represents the largest series of patient...

When compared with most vertebrates, frogs use a novel style of jumping locomotion powered by the hindlimbs. Hindlimb bones of frogs must withstand the potentially erratic loads associated with such saltatory locomotion. To evaluate the load beari...

To investigate the nationwide prevalence of hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection and to characterize HEV genomes among Japanese wild boars (Sus scrofa leucomystax), 578 boars captured in 25 prefectures from 2003 to 2010 were studied. Anti-HEV IgG was...
