Turney J McKee, Svetlana V Komarova
The success of in vitro experiments depends largely on the quality of the cell culture media. Four synthetic media formulations, Dulbecco's Modified Minimum Essential Media (DMEM), RPMI 1640, Minimum Essential Media and its alpha modification (MEM), and Medium 199 (M199) are used in ~90% of published in vitro studies. We compared the levels of electrolytes and carbohydrates in these media formulations to physiological values in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid. The most commonly used media, DMEM and RPMI 1640, largely deviate from physiological levels of glucose...

Control of the reversibility during boronic ester formation from boronic acids and diols was found to be possible by choosing an appropriate solvent. As an example, ferrocene dimers and trimers were constructed by using tetrol 1 with an indacene framework, 1,1'-ferrocenediboronic acid 2, and ferrocenemonoboronic acid 4. When equimolar amounts of 1 and 2 were mixed in methanol under equilibrating conditions, two kinds of stacked ferrocene dimers homo- and hetero-3 were selectively obtained depending on the reaction time and both structures were determined by X-ray crystallographic analysis...

BACKGROUND: Changes during the puerperium are still unclear, particularly in women with hypertension. The choice of antihypertensives, both to control very high blood pressure episodes and to keep blood pressure stable, also requires further elucidation. Currently, there are no clear data to guide the decision for the choice of postpartum antihypertensives. Captopril plays an important role in the treatment of very high blood pressure episodes and may be used postpartum. Clonidine has been used as an alternative in pregnant or postpartum women with contraindications to captopril, with satisfactory effect...
