  • Priming for enhanced stimulated O2- release, and morphologic and enzymic changes, were not achieved by injection of the D-D stereoisomer of MDP [29].
  • In contrast, d-verapamil, a stereoisomer which does not block calcium channels, did not inhibit the serotonin-induced changes [30].
  • 17alpha-estradiol (an inactive E2 stereoisomer) had no effect [31].
  • The results indicated that fresh, green, leafy vegetables were moderately high in beta carotene (0.5-14.6 mg/100 g) and very high in oxygenated carotenoids or xanthophylls, primarily lutein and its stereoisomers (2.3-63.0 mg/100g) [corrected] [32].
