1. D-mannitol, a specific hydroxyl free radical scavenger, can reduce the developmental toxicity of hydroxyurea in rabbits.
2. A. fumigatus can produce and release sufficient D-mannitol in the tissues of infected animals to raise serum D-mannitol levels, thus, D-mannitol is a potential diagnostic marker for aspergillosis.
3. D-Mannitol has thermal properties, it could be as a Phase Change Material (PCM) for latent heat storage system.
4. D-mannitol has neuroprotectant effect in reducing the sensory neurological disturbances seen in ciguatera poisoning, it does not act purely as an osmotic agent to reduce swelling of nerves, but involves a more complex action dependent on the Na(v) channel subtype, possibly to alter or reduce toxin association.
1. 1,1,3,3-Tetraethoxypropane,the precursor of the ubiquitous natural compound malondialdehyde.
2. Tetraethoxypropane as the standard in the thiobarbituric acid (TBA) assay.
|CFN90070||Homovanillic Acid Sulfate
1. Homovanillic acid sulfate presence supports a diagnosis of neuroblastoma and malignant pheochromocytoma.
2. Homovanillic acid sulfate is used as a reagent to detect oxidative enzymes, and is associated with dopamine levels in the brain.
3. In psychiatry and neuroscience, brain and cerebrospinal fluid levels of homovanillic acid are measured as a marker of metabolic stress caused by 2-deoxy-D-glucose.
1. 1,5-Anhydro-D-glucitol level might provide additional information to identify macroangiopathy of patients with type 2 diabetes, especially in those with excellent HbA1c levels.
2. Low 1,5-Anhydro-D-glucitol levels are associated with vascular endothelial dysfunction, suggests it is a potentially useful marker for vascular endothelial dysfunction.
1. Estriol (E3), an endogenous estrogen predominantly produced during human pregnancy, E3 can blunt the postprandial glycemic surge in rats through modulating the level of intestinal glucose transporters.
2. Estriol acts as a potent estrogen and exerts a mitogenic effect on T-47D and MCF-7 cells at concentrations of 10(-9)M (288 pg/ml) and higher.
3. There is a significant relationship between salivary Estriol levels and preterm birth, so, a new method of prediction of preterm birth is by salivary Estriol.
4. Estriol at the level extrapolated from its level at III trimester of pregnancy could facilitate the reduction of antimicrobial potential of neutrophils at the early stages of growth of pathogenic microorganisms.
