Disease relevance of CROTONIC ACID

  • A Gram-positive spore former (Bacillus megaterium) was distinguished by an abundant peak for crotonic acid evident in positive and negative ions and not observed with M. luteus [1].

High impact information on CROTONIC ACID

  • The aim of this study was to investigate the equilibrium swelling properties in urea solutions of gamma-radiation induced polyelectrolyte copolymeric hydrogels consisting of acrylamide (AAm) and crotonic acid (CA) [2].
  • The butyrate enhancers acetoacetate and crotonic acid, and the butyrate unsaturated analog 2-butynoic acid, decreased methanogenesis by a maximum of 18,9 and 9%, respectively [3].
  • This in vitro evolution system consists of a polymerase chain reaction-mediated random mutagenesis and two assay procedures, a plate assay using a PHB-staining dye and a high-pressure liquid chromatographic assay based on the converting reaction from PHB to crotonic acid [4].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of CROTONIC ACID

  • PHB was detected in both tetramer and monomer species of KcsA by reaction to anti-PHB IgG on Western blots, and estimated as 28 monomer units of PHB per KcsA tetramer by a chemical assay in which PHB is converted to its unique degradation product, crotonic acid [5].
