Disease relevance of N-OCTYLAMINE

  • Also, the toxicity was significantly (P < 0.05) enhanced as early as 0.5 h by n-octylamine, a known positive effector for FMO [1].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of N-OCTYLAMINE

  • A new method is presented for the simultaneous determination of reduced and oxidized glutathione by ion-interaction reversed-phase HPLC with octylamine orthophosphate as the interaction reagent, 5-microns Spherisorb ODS-2 as the stationary phase and UV detection at 230 nm [19].
  • In the EPR spectra at 77K and in the optical absorption spectra at room temperature a considerable temperature independent high spin content of the rabbit cytochrome is observed which has been estimated to about 55% by titration with n-octylamine [20].
  • Hepatic microsomes from male Holtzman albino rats fed a synthetic fat-free diet for 21 days had significantly less cytochrome P-450 and exhibited less binding capacity (delta Amax/mg protein) for aniline and octylamine than microsomes from similar rats fed a diet containing 10% corn oil [21].
  • Films of nanocrystals of varying thickness (454, 720, and 1400 microg/cm2 in the case of citrate-capped nanocrystals and 300 microg/cm2 in the case of octylamine-capped nanocrystals) have been prepared on Si(100) substrates by drop casting and have been characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy [22].
