This paper describes an improved liquid chromatography method combined with pulsed electrochemical detection for the analysis of etimicin sulfate. In total, 22 impurities could be separated. A TSK-GEL C18 column (250 mm × 4.6 mm i.d., 5 μm) is used, and the mobile phase is composed of 40 mL of acetonitrile and 960 mL of an aqueous solution containing trifluoroacetic acid (15 mL/L), pentafluoropropionic acid (500 μL/L), 50% sodium hydroxide (8 mL/L) and sodium sulfate (1.5 g/L). The pH of the aqueous solution is adjusted to 3.5 with 0.8 M sodium hydroxide. The influence of the different chromatographic parameters on the separation was investigated. A quadruple potential-time waveform was applied to the electrodes of the detection cell. 0.8 M sodium hydroxide was added post column to raise the pH to at least 12 before detection. A central composite experimental design was used to describe the relationship between factors and response values and to establish factorial analysis. Compared to previously published investigations, this improved method shows higher sensitivity, better separation ability and robustness and has been incorporated by the Chinese Pharmacopoeia 2015 for analysis of etimicin sulfate. A number of commercial sam...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
