Gene context of Amylol

  • The compound is first extracted from acid-treated plasma into chloroform: 1-pentanol (3:1) and reextracted into a small volume of an aqueous phase at pH 7, which is injected in the chromatographic column (microgram-Bondapack C18; 10 micrometers) [24].
  • The phase boundaries of the middle-phase microemulsion for NaCl/SDS/H2O/1-heptane/1-pentanol systems in the absence of polymer and in the presence of unmodified poly(acrylamide) (PAM) and hydrophobically modified poly(acrylamide) (HMPAM) have been determined at varying salt concentrations [25].
  • Increasing alcohol carbon chain length produced a greater average change in apparent binding energy and potency for modulation of GABA(A) than of NMDA receptor-channels, with the result that alcohols above pentanol affected GABA(A) receptors more potently than NMDA receptors [26].
  • By the method of rocket immunoelectrophoresis of aqueous , Trition, and n-pentanol extracts of snail nervous tissue, S100 was demonstrated to be mainly in the membrane fraction [27].
  • Using a C8 column and mobile phases of 0.05 mol l-1 SDS-6% v/v pentanol or 0.15 mol l-1 SDS-2% v/v pentanol at pH 7, more than 30 different phenethylamine-antihistamine combinations can be resolved in < 15 min [28].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Amylol

  • Quantitation of antihistamines in pharmaceutical preparations by liquid chromatography with a micellar mobile phase of sodium dodecyl sulfate and pentanol [29].
  • Several series of activated carbons prepared by catalytic and noncatalytic gasification and subsequent deposition of pyrocarbon by pyrolysis of methylene chloride or n-amyl alcohol were studied by FTIR, chromatography, and adsorption methods using nitrogen and probe organics (explosives) [30].
  • Starch gel electrophoresis of retina ADH shows an anodic band that can be visualized by activity staining, using either ethanol or pentanol as substrates [31].
  • We report on the rheology of a lyotropic lamellar surfactant solution (SDS/dodecane/pentanol/ water), and identify a discontinuous transition between two shear thinning regimes which correspond to the low-stress lamellar phase and the more viscous shear-induced multilamellar vesicle, or "onion" phase [32].
