Properties of Pertechnic Acid.

Chuck Soderquist, Jamie Weaver, Herman Cho, Bruce McNamara, Sergey Sinkov, John McCloy,

Dilute aqueous pertechnic acid has long been known as strong monoprotic acid that behaves as a simple pertechnetate ion in aqueous solution. As pertechnic acid concentrates by evaporation, it becomes yellow and then dark red, and dark-red crystalline material may ultimately be obtained. We show that as pertechnic acid concentrates, ...

Long-term outcomes in a 25-year-old female affected with lipin-1 deficiency.

Karolina M Stepien, Wolfgang M Schmidt, Reginald E Bittner, Orna O'Toole, Brian McNamara, Eileen P Treacy,

Lipin-1 is a phosphatidic acid phosphohydrolase (EC 3.1.3.4) that catalyzes the dephosphorylation of phosphatidic acid to diacylglycerol and inorganic phosphate. Deficiency of this enzyme causes potentially fatal severe, recurrent episodes of rhabdomyolysis triggered by infection. The defect has only recently been recognized so little is known about the long-term outcome ... Read more >>
