Disease relevance of Cotton Fiber

  • Our study suggests that transformation through vacuum infiltration and Agrobacterium mediated transformation can be an efficient way to introduce foreign genes into the cotton pollen grain and that cotton fiber quality can be improved with the incorporation of the prokaryotic genes acsA and acsB [1].
  • The same materials (polyurethane foam, polyester and cotton fibers) were also thermally decomposed in a small scale system and mice were exposed to the smoke to evaluate acute toxicity [2].

Associations of Cotton Fiber with chemical compounds

  • Previous studies from this laboratory have shown that particulate preparations from maturing cotton fibers catalyze the transfer of mannose from GDP-[14C]mannose into mannosylphosphorylpolyisoprenol (Forsee, W. T., and Elbein,A. D. (1973) J. Biol. Chem. 248, 2858-2867) [10].
  • Characterization of mRNA for a proline-rich protein of cotton fiber [11].
  • Extraction columns containing purified cotton fiber (JETUBE, Manhattan Instrument Co., Santa Monica, Calif.) are shown to give high (approximately 90-97%) extraction efficiencies for some commonly prescribed or abused drugs, notably phenobarbital, amphetamine, morphine, and methadone [12].
  • Sodium hydroxide and AHP treatments were effective in increasing acid detergent fiber degradation of the Solka floc which contained, on average, 3.3 and 4.8 percentage units more acid detergent lignin and hemicellulose, respectively, than cotton fiber and Sigmacell-50.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)[13]
  • The attachment to cotton fibers was made through both a single glycine and a glycine dipeptide esterified to cotton cellulose [14].
