, : 5. The water melon as a source of vitamin C. Questions of Nutrition U.S.S.R, 3: 2, 49

Author's abstracts of papers in Russian. Caucasian mandarins were estimated to contain 500 " units " vitamin C per kg. of juice. Dried black currants which had been stored for 18 months contained 120 " units " per kg.; freshly dried black currants contained 150 " units." Dried carrots, in doses of 3, 4, 5, 6 g. daily, did not protect guineapigs from scurvy and had in fact a deleterious effect on the animals.

Cross-resistance to macrolide, lincosamide, and streptogramin B (MLSB) antibiotics is mainly mediated by the erm (erythromycin ribosome methylation) genes that encode 23S rRNA methylases in enterococi, and various mechanisms are involved in the st...
