High impact information on C14218

  • 51Cr-labeled red blood cells, 125I-labeled albumin, and 14C-labeled 1,8-octanediol were injected with labeled 5-HT at rest and at two increasing levels of exercise (lower and higher in 9 dogs) [1].
  • Further, our biotransformation system showed alpha,omega-diterminal oxidation activity of n-alkanes, and a large amount of 1,8-octanediol (722 mg per liter) was produced from 1-octanol after 24 h of incubation [2].
