Chemical constituents of sponge Pseudoceratina sp. and their chemotaxonomic significance
Publication date: April 2020Source: Biochemical Systematics and Ecology, Volume 89Author(s): Huanhuan Li, Hai Yu, Wenhui Wu, Peng SunAbstractThe chemical investigation of Pseudoceratina sp. led to the isolation of six compounds including tyrosine brominated isoxazoline alkaloids (1 and 2), polyketide (3), and 5α,8α-epidioxysterols (4–6). The structures of these compounds were identified by comparison of NMR and MS spectroscopic data with those previously reported. Compounds 3–6 were isolated for the first time from sponges of the genus Pseudoceratina. The chemotaxonomic significance of these compounds was discussed.Graphical abstract
Authors: Zhylkaidarova A, Kaidarova D, Batyrbekov K, Shatkovskaya O, Begimbetova D Abstract We carried out an analysis of the total incidence of colon cancer throughout Kazakhstan. Retrospectively, according to the regional reports on endoscopic screening, the study showed an increase in the age-related incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) cases from 2004-2008 to 2009-2014. The peak of morbidity in both periods was noted in the age category of>70 years. The indicators of the territorial distribution of CRC incidence make it possible to divide the regions into areas with low or high rates of CRC. Specific indicat...
Conclusions: The transduodenal approach for obtaining samples from solid lesions using a 19-G flexible needle seems feasible and accurate. PMID: 32447874 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
