I wonder if anybody can help me out with a question on hyaluronate.
Im looking for the molar extinction coefficient at 232nm of the of the
delta4,5-unsaturated uronic acid present at the non-reducing end of
oligosaccharides generated from hyaluronate by the action of an eliminase
such as some hyaluronate lyases and chondroitin lyase. Now if anybody
out there has calculated this value Ill be delighted if you would share it
with me, however I know that there is a paper in the literature which has
this value in it. Now what you are all asking is - if he knows that why
doesnt he get the paper? Well I have an answer to that. I picked up the
reference as a citation from another work - made a note of it and
subsequently lost it and cant remember even where I found the citation.
Yup! youre correct I feel bad about that one.
Anyway, what I recall is that it was in The Biochemical Journal between
issue 180 - 198. I would just go to the library and sit and run through the
lot to find it but these volumes are in storage and I need to request then to
be sent up - the library are not keen to get the lot sent up.
So, if you are able to help me out on this Ill be very grateful.
