Flowering plants of the neotropics


, : Flowering plants of the neotropics. Flowering plants of the neotropics: xxii + 594 pp.

This book covers more than 280 families of plants known to occur in the Western Hemisphere between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. The text describes features of each family, the diversity of genera and species, distribution, habitat, classification, botany, natural history and economic uses. More than 300 colour illustrations and 250 botanical line drawings illustrate the text.

A mild method for the selective esterification of primary alcohols is described. The use of different phosphines, I(2), and imidazole allows the selective esterification of a wide variety of acids with excellent results. The generation of a bulky...

Xia, M.; Liu, H.; Li, Y.; Yan, N.; Gong, H., 2014: The mechanism of Na⁺/K⁺ selectivity in mammalian voltage-gated sodium channels based on molecular dynamics simulation. Voltage-gated sodium (Nav) channels and their Na⁺/K⁺ selectivity are of great importance in the mammalian neuronal signaling. According to mutational analysis, the Na⁺/K⁺ selectivity in mammalian Nav channels is mainly determined by the Ly...

By microspectrofluorometry on single living cells (murine fibroblasts 3T3 cells), monoexponential decreases of fluorescence intensity for benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P) and 6-aminochrysene (6a-chrysene) metabolism were obtained. These kinetics were charac...
