Cuadrículas III: Puentes de Hidrógeno en Química General
Based on IUPAC recommendations for the definition of the hydrogen bond, a series of grids is presented to provide instructors of introductory chemistry courses with visual examples of H-bridged systems. The grids ...
Screening of Latin American Plants for Cytotoxic Activity
The SRB cytotoxicity assay was used to screen plant extracts, in a collaborative multinational OAS project involving Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Panama, against breast (MCF-7), lung ...
The Bacterial Product Violacein Exerts an Immunostimulatory Effect Via TLR8
Violacein, an indole-derived, purple-colored natural pigment isolated from Chromobacterium violaceum has shown multiple biological activities. In this work, we studied the effect of violacein in different immune cell lines, ...
Synthesis and Crystal Structure of a Copper(II) Benzoate Complex Bearing a Bis-2,2′-Tetrahydrofuryl Peroxide Moiety
Complex [Cu2(ben)4·2THF−(η1–O2)]∞ (2) (ben=C6H5CO2− benzoate; THF=tetrahydrofuran) was isolated when a solution of Cu2(ben)4·2THF (1) in THF upon natural sunlight irradiation yields crystals suitable for single-crystal ...
Pheromone chirality of african palm weevil, Rhynchophorus phoenicis (F.) and palmetto weevil, Rhynthophorus crueniatus (F.) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
There are four stereoisomers of both 3-methyl-octan-4-ol, the aggregation pheromone of the African palm weevil,Rhynchophorus phoenicis (F.) and 5-methyl-octan-4-ol, the aggregation pheromone of the palmetto weevil,Rhynchophorus ...
Predation of the Rolled-Leaf Beetle Cephaloleia kressi García-Robledo (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Cassidinae) by the Rove Beetle Phanolinus Sp. (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae: Xanthopygina) in a Montane Forest of Costa Rica
The genus Cephaloleia Chevrolat includes 215 species, known as rolled-leaf beetles, all of which are restricted to the Neotropics (Garcı́a-Robledo et al. 2015; Staines and Garcı́a-Robledo 2014). These beetles complete their ...
