Monounsaturated Fatty Acids Are Substrates for Aldehyde Generation in Tellurite-Exposed Escherichia coli
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) damage macromolecules and cellular components in nearly all kinds of cells and often generate toxic intracellular byproducts. In this work, aldehyde generation derived from the Escherichia ...
PHA(MCL) biosynthesis systems in Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Pseudomonas putida strains show differences on monomer specificities
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2009)
The production of PHA from plant oils by Pseudomonas species soil isolated from a sugarcane crop was evaluated. Out of 22 bacterial strains three were able to use efficiently plant oils to grow and to accumulate PHA. ...
Thermoplastic polyesters and Co-polyesters derived from vegetable oil: synthesis and optimization of melt polycondensation for medium and long chain poly(omega-hydroxyfatty acid)s and their ester derivatives
(Royal Soc Chemistry, 2014-01-01)
The synthesis of a series of omega-hydroxyfatty acid (omega-OHFA) monomers and their methyl ester derivatives (Me-omega-OHFA) from mono-unsaturated fatty acids and alcohols via ozonolysis-reduction/crossmetathesis reactions ...

This work presents the phytochemical study and biological assays carried out with organic extracts of fruits and seeds from Trichilia claussenii, T. elegans and inflorescence from T. catigua against S. frugiperda. Among ...
The Role of Lipotoxicity in Smoke Cardiomyopathy
(Public Library Science, 2014-12-02)
Background/Aims: Experimental and clinical studies have shown the direct toxic effects of cigarette smoke (CS) on the myocardium, independent of vascular effects. However, the underlying mechanisms are not well known.Methods: ...
